To my followers , with ‘gratitude’ , lots of it !

Daily post prompt

It has been about four months , since I began this ‘blog’ , and since then , I have only felt more blessed , more appreciated and more welcome in this world , than I have ever felt before in this life .

Like any other person who starts his/her own blog , my main motive for doing so , was  personal in nature – to write and voice out my thoughts , in a world , I was not  yet sure of and , to have at least one odd person , be inspired by what I write or say !

I have always been fond of penning down things and my fascination for poetry writing began when I was in my fifth grade and I was asked to write a poem on ‘mother’ ! To my utter surprise , I won the first prize in that competition , and that is what encouraged me to write further…And soon my diary was filled with poems for my entire family !

I continued the tradition of jotting down things , even after my daughter was born , but it is this blog ,which now motivates me to write , click pictures  and think more creatively , than I did before.

What I have managed to gain from this blog has been much greater than all this .

Other than ,realizing my own creative potential  ,an increased sense of self esteem and an improvement in my writing skills , I have got the wonderful opportunity to interact with so many lovely people , make new friends , learn a few lessons from their lives , get inspired to travel to some beautiful places , study different cultures and of course , imbibe some good things into my own life as well.

So , although I had been planning to come out with this post some time soon , this Daily post prompt has acted as a catalyst , leading me to  write this thanks giving post 🙂

When I started this blog , I did so with ‘zero’ followers…The wordpress allows me to link my posts to ‘Facebook share’ , there by adding , my facebook friends to my list of followers ! But , I did not want that… I preferred to have a list of my own exclusive and genuine followers , even if it meant having none or perhaps one !

But the world is full of surprises and very soon , the number started increasing and today I can proudly say I have 191 followers ( oddly enough , I was waiting for the number to turn 200 , before I wrote this post , if it were not for this prompt ! )

I know this number doesn’t hold much significance for a lot of you who have followers going up to thousands and more..

But , I view this as a teeny weeny achievement , and I take this opportunity to thank each and every single one of my followers who have seen my blog go through its period of evolution ! 

I may have visited your blogs , followed back some of you , but I know there are quite a few whom I have , although not deliberately , ignored . But I will certainly  take some time out to visit each one of you , on the next available opportunity !

There have a few of you ,who have actively supported me in my sojourn , guiding me with your advice , motivating me with your kinds words or simply indicating your appreciation through your regular and consistent ‘likes’ . And I am sure those who haven’t have their reasons too … 😉

I take this post as an opportunity to express my gratitude for all those  views , the awesome awards , lovely comments , genuine feed backs , likes, ping backs and follows ! You have made my blog what it is today ( not that it is a great one , but at least it is presentable 😛 )

Here are a few lines expressing my gratitude to each one of you.... :

I thank you all from the bottom of my heart, 

For being with me ,from my ‘start’

For the kind words , and cute remarks,

and pointing out my mistakes ,’stark’ !

For appreciating the good in me ,

A ‘thank you’ being the only ‘fee’…

Thanks for always being there ;

and for being so  clearly fair…

Thanks for your love ,which I cherish ;

And for every kind and beautiful wish !

Thanking you all for your continuous support and looking forward for your encouragement in the future too…

Till then , take care all and stay happy 🙂

        Yes I am trying to pen down more..But to be honest; lazy, get carried away with work, deficient ideas etc..etc 🙂 …
        And I really doubt if ” the world will be deprived of some great talent “..!!! .. 😛
