The 700th One
What do you write when you actually reach 700 posts? Actually nothing much except what I have already written in 300, 400, 500 and 600 post. It will be 5 years in a couple of months since I started writing here. 700 posts in less than 5 years;
Not bad at all!
I started writing because I needed to vent a lot of things, I needed to remember the life I had and what I felt about it. It is about the life I had lived and what I could remember about it. I have been accused of living in the past and I do. Many people want me to look in the future and live my life accordingly.
It hasn’t been a great life but I haven’t done bad either so far. What tomorrow holds one never know and one cannot predict. I will always take the day as it comes because the future always looked uncertain.
I still don’t plan a life!
What started as my escape from boredom and the need to talk has grown into something bigger than I expected. It talks about me and me. I don’t promote it but still people come! It has a life of its own now.
Every milestone I wonder, how far can I go? But I still make it to the other end. This time I wonder if I can make it to 800 and its looks quite difficult. The last few months, the number of post has been down to single digit. I have always posted every 2-3 days but last few months the posts have been down.
My laziness was the prime reason. Work was another reason. And life isn’t happening either.
Its to the office and back from office routine. Work is not easy and full of events but I don’t blog about work. Outside work life becomes a tad too boring. I may be whining a lot here but it is the way it is.
I have looked back and thought how did I reach here? How many memories do I have? Will I run out of memories one day? Maybe I would. But then I would have made some more memories.
As I live and experience life, I would be part of more stories. Some interesting, Some memorable and some boring stories and I would write. It seems unlikely that I would stop writing but I never know. At one time I was unsure if I could start writing.
When I started, I wrote for an audience. Today, an occasional comment does warm my heart but the incentive for writing has changed. I write because I need to, I want to. The visitors have decreased. I would write less frequently one day but I would write.
Looking at about 700 posts I feel a lot of my life here. Snapshots. A snap here and a snap there. Nothing continuous!
There are also words by my readers who have graced these pages and I doubt I would be deleting these pages, these words
So there would be stories, stories written here, not with the perfect grammar, not without my frequent spelling mistakes but there would be stories, taken from life and as I said some interesting, some good and mostly boring.
So while I cross another milestone, I hope they will never end!
Note: Title inspired from Hindi movie “Chamku”‘s tagline.
Har kahani Suru hoti hai khatam hone ke baad. Aur Khatam….. Kahani kabhi khatam nahi hoti!
A journey that ends where it all began!
