Hello everyone! Finally I’m walking back into the light after a huge hiatus. Ask me where I disappeared and I doubt I’d have a very convincing answer to give. Or maybe I have.
So, there were a few things that made me abandon this blog and vanish. One was the “scheduling” of posts I used to do whenever I traveled. I did it one or two times between Jan and April and the more I thought about it, I felt it’s something along the lines of cheating. I mean, I have enough photos that I can just schedule for the entire year and WP will do its job of uploading them all at the scheduled time. Well, that’s not exactly “photo a day” project per me. This started worrying me a bit. Or maybe a lot.
Another reason was the overwhelming response I was getting from all of you. I was getting anywhere between 80 and 100 (sometimes even more) likes on my photos. This was very encouraging and I am so thankful to each one of you, but at the same time, it started reaching a point where I was finding it difficult to find time to pay a return visit to all you fellow bloggers. Not a good thing at all and this again started bugging me.
On top of all these, after my last trip in April, I came home with a conked out laptop. So, long story short, I just decided to shut the whole thing down. Period.
I am back now and I don’t plan on disappearing again. Fingers crossed!
As for the blog, some of you must have noticed the minor changes. I have moved the blog to my own domain, which has been running for the last few years on the self-hosted version of WP. I felt it’d be much easier to move it to WP dot com and manage everything under one roof. Let’s see how it goes.
And lastly, a HUGE apology to everyone who e-mailed me. The mails came in as a pleasant surprise and it was such a nice feeling to know that I am remembered, but I know, it was really, really bad of me not to have replied. I am not even attempting to come up with lame excuses as to why.
End of rant.
Happy New Year to each and every one of you! May 2019 turn out to be a great year for all you bloggers (and non-bloggers) out there. 🙂
