2 Years...and above 75 entries...The journey so far...and beyond

Hello everyone

It's the 13th of June today. The year is 2010. I am sitting in front of the computer at 5 in the morning, after I realized the significance of today's date in my life.

Exactly two years back, on this very day, I had started writing my blog. I had come to know what a blog is and taking inspiration from Amitabh Bachchan's blog at 'bigadda', I had dreamed of starting an online journal through which people who are interested could get a first hand info about my day-to-day life.

I started this blog with short and brief but frequent entries, which mostly included my day-to-day life happennings. Somehow I never got more than 2 or 3 visitors for almost a whole year!

Then one of my friends suggested me to make entries in a way that would appeal to others and would not cater to my interests alone. I realized that I was not Amitabh and people were not actually interested in what I was upto.

Over the past year, the frequency of my entries decreased substantially, but at the same time, the quality increased. My writings no longer remained confined to the boundaries of my life. I started writing things that were surely going to appeal to my most frequent readers: my friends and relatives. And no doubt, I had a slow but day-by-day increasing readership at this blog. May it be my entry about my friends and hostel life (click here to see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6) or may be my directorial debut or critical appreciation of 3 Idiots.....all these found really big readership and my visitors found it appealing enough to re-visit my entries.

Another thing that has surely become better is my writing style. I have found much appreciation from my most frequent visitors regarding this.

A month back this blog even found a name for itself. From "ANTARIK ANWESAN" it came to be known as "ON SECOND THOUGHTS..." And a new layout also found its place at antarik.blogspot.com. I even found recognition from google to include my blog in its blog search!

So now, for the future? Well, I will be as regular as I can, not because I want you to know what I am going through in my life, but because I love writing! And moreover, I love blogging!!

Hope you have a wonderful time in reading my future entries....Au Revoir!!

Antarik
