The Bliss Of Blogging…Just For Spreading My Creative Wings

Faith in words & emotions

Blogging can be fun when you don’t have any specific goals, when you can smile at yourself with the thought…Oh! Today’s post is still in a limbo.

Blogging opens magnificent avenues of communication and conversation if you can play with words.

Blogging nurtures our thoughts and ideas and can be creative as well as cathartic.

Blogging introduces us to like-minded persons whom we may not have met but there develops a bonding beyond friendship.

This friendship is strengthened with words…words that define us, that introduce us to each other, that lift us out of the mundane into our splendid world of imagination.

I am holding back today’s scheduled post as I am basking in the glory of one such blogger friend.

There was a time when my blog was more like a ghost villa, my own words wandering here and there aimlessly, always smiling at each other.

They were the friendly ghosts, waiting to welcome, to befriend warm-hearted writers who could appreciate the humble efforts of an aspiring artist who loved to paint with words, who carried emotions on her sleeve and could only write poetry.

Little did she know that this genre is no longer read and more so in the blogosphere, which held pro bloggers in high esteem.

She started writing prose too, learnt to elaborate on ideas albeit poetry remained her favorite form of writing.

Slowly the ghost villa got lit up with wonderful blogger friends, poets and authors whose brilliance sparkles on the pages of Emotional Shadows in the form of their reflections that they share.

I value each one of you and would like to express my gratitude for being here. I cherish your friendship and support and look forward to an emotional bonding, which gets stronger with time.

Today’s words of appreciation are inspired by one such author friend Joe Perrone Jr. who even invited me over to his own blog. I am thrilled beyond words and would like you to join me in my moments of delight.

  1. This was such a lovely post to read on your take on blogging, and I couldn’t agree with them more. It is inspiring to see you keeping up your blog even though it was a ghost villa, and in the process found confidence in your writing and gained newfound friends. I hopped over to Joe’s and had a read, and it was lovely getting to know you better. From your interview, it sounds like you are at peace with where you are at personally and professionally, and I think that rubs off on your writing and passion as well.

    Keep writing, Balroop. I am so glad to have met you here and look forward to reading more from you my friend 🙂

    1. Thank you Mabel, this post was just an introduction to inform all my blogger friends about the interview. I am glad you noticed how I found confidence in blogging. I take pride in all my author and poet friends who spare their valuable time in reading and sharing their views…communication of thoughts is one of the most significant aspects of blogging.

      I appreciate your hopping over to Joe’s blog and even liking that post. Many thanks for that dear friend. You are right…peace may be elusive but I try to hold on to it 🙂

  5. Blogging friends are the best. Over the years and months, we learn bits and pieces about each other from our words. Though many of us go at it from a business perspective, we can still connect via the many stories we can all tell. I look forward to your posts that much I know.

  6. Hi Balroop, that’s a lovely way to look at blogging. I completely agree when you say that it helps to develop a bonding beyond friendship – one that is strengthened by words. I had a quick look at Joe’s blog and from the first 2- 3 questions & answers, it seems like a wonderful interview, Will return to the blog to read in details.
