I love my BLOG


If there has to be a place that I can call my own, apart from where I live, which of course is technically my dad’s (coz he bought  it), it’s here on ‘Goin’ the extra..aaamile – my blog’ in virtual space.
I’ve always been known to be someone very random and  not sticking by the RULES kind of person, my blog has turned out to be the same. You’ll find all sorts of things, mixed with pictures and the occasional video.
I used to maintain a dairy with stuff pasted on them, a few quotes and wordings and things that appealed to me but no-one got to see it. I named it “Pen Gems”. The idea of blogging came to when a friend suggested the same..and like I always do, it took me time to actually set out and create a blog and finally start posting.
Now here I am, very much comfortable on posting whatever comes to my mind..and for the wonderful readers than actually read what I write – you guys are truly special. Through my blog, I have a bigger family now – my fellow bloggers (who I still haven’t met in person) and for those anonymous readers who love to peek in once in a while without wanting to disclose their identities (yes! you too)
… it gives me my freedom to express, the thoughts I get..the things that I see..the stories around me that need to be told. There’s so much that I se and want to talk about – this is the platform, that gives me the chance. I can be myself here irrespective of what people have to say. I do it MY WAY.
…it keeps reaching out through me through my blogger friends. If I’ve not posted for a while, my blogger friends reach out to me to remind me that I need to get back.
This blog has given me my identity. People know I blog, maybe not in a big way but I still do. If not for my blog. I wouldn’t be a blogger. Simple. Now when you search me on the Internet, Google recognizes me. This is what you’ll see…
There are many more reasons why my blog will always be special..but all that on some other post, some other time. logoI might change my blog logo (in color) several times over the year, but the one that matters (THE ORIGINAL) will always remain.
Are ‘U’ a blogger too? What do U love about your blog? What’s your BLOG story? I’d love to know.

    & Nice to see that Google recognizes You… (For Me, it just recognizes my Blog 😛)

    1. Your blog is still about “you” 🙂

      1. Yeah but only to some extent 😛
        But sometimes it does reflect Me 😛😀

  2. I love my blog. And it all started when I wanted a space to put up all my writings. A space which would be open only to all the strangers out there and me. My immediate people still ain’t aware of this, I believe! 😁

    1. That’s the best actually! On my side, my dad, sis & mum know about it..so tho’ I need to be careful what I post, I still go ahead and post what I feel like.. 🙂
      Good going Tanya 🙂

      1. And there lies no though and careful for me here soo….😁
        Happy Reading! 🙂

  3. After reading this even I googled my name and the result was surprising, so much stuff actually related to me and interestingly in the images section there were pics of my followers too…..
    I really love blogging, it’s like my kingdom, where I have the freedom to express myself. I also get to interact with so many people from all over the world! It would be great if I actually get to see these bloggers in reality. Blogging is just an amazing feeling!

    1. There’s a good chance we’d meet in your state half way down this year. Kerala ryt? I know Kerala is big..but never tooooo big for two bloggers to meet over some chai and Pazham pori (very oily-but wow!)

      1. That’s true….But the problem is that I come to India only for two months in a year. A native of Kerala who lives in Punjab and studies in Russia! ….But still when the time comes, eventhe world is a place too small. Whenever you are in Kerala or Punjab, do let me know! If I’m around….We will meet!

        1. Russia! Omg! Did you meet Vladimir Putin? 😉

  4. So true. I love your blog too. Keep writing. 😊
    I feel the same way about my blog. At times, it’s like I’m obsessed with my blog. It’s become such a huge part of me. And it’s a great feeling to know that there are several people all over the world reading your work. That’s what keeps me going. 😊
    Great post! It was so relatable.

    1. Thank you Shweta, and yes blogging is like almost a part of us now…ty for reading & liking too 🙂

      1. It was my pleasure 😃

  5. Love your blog and the positive energy you bring to the blogosphere! In fact I’ve just nominated you for the Sunshine Blogger Award which you may have noticed through the ping back? Congratulations! Keep writing! 🙂

    1. Nopes, not got any ping, but will check it from your blog 🙂

      1. I remember counting the number of ‘a’ to type your blog name right. 😁

        1. I got it, but it didn’t link to my blog…nevertheless I found it. Will go through it.

  6. Good post on V day. I have similar thoughts like you regarding my blog. I love it because it is my private writing space. I feel in connect with the world through my blog because being a full time mom sometimes is very isolating. I love blogging simply because I can’t help writing!

    1. Good going Shivangi, keep it up.. 👍
