A little celebration

followsI think this calls for a little celebration. It’s been a good 2 months and 9 days. 81 posts later this is where I stand: 102 follows, 3364 views and 1002 likes.

Stats apart I’ve had great fun with my first experience in the world of blogging. Being a mother has been my greatest inspiration in writing but I’ve written about a lot of things, some very personal, thanks to the Daily Prompts and the Weekly writing challenges and photo challenges. I actually wrote my first poem as one of my posts and am now thinking of collecting some of my children’s poems into a book. That will be my next project. I had just started promoting my children’s story books when I started blogging. Now I have so many other ideas as well. I have a novel in my head and am just starting to write it down. Again the idea came to me when I was writing a story for one of the challenges.

Most of all I’ve come across some amazing people. Always ready with kind comments and encouraging remarks. I want to thank all of you for being there and making life so much better. You are an inspiration for me. A special thanks to Pat(ricia)Olga and Victoria for their very welcome feedback, Angloswiss for her inspirational writing, Angie and Connie for their inspirational photography, Sheenmeem and KraftedKhaos for motivating me to write poetry, SalamHarsha, plaridelDriesRandomly AbstractImexcitedstemgirlInigo boy and Bams for their frequent visits, iamfunny2 for his clever challenges, Ray Ferrer for being the first one to click that follow button and No Virgin Mary for being the 100th.

Here’s some traditional mithai (sweets) for all of you. Enjoy!

P.S I apologize if I forgot to mention someone!

Sneaky

The Daily prompts are very useful because thanks to them I manage to post something every day. OK it may not be award winning, but at least some people like it. I’ve been responding to the Daily Prompt regularly ever since I discovered it, even though sometimes I have to be a bit sneaky and write something other than what was asked for (A little Absurdity).  (The really sneaky people are the ones found at the top of the pingbacks list with totally unrelated stuff!).

As a mother I have to be sneaky a lot of the times just to get things done. OK that itself was a sneaky statement. Let me be more honest. As a mother of an energetic and demanding 3 ½ yr old I often have to sneak off to blog, write, nap, heck even to go to the toilet. Somehow he always knows where I am and what I’m doing. Isn’t it supposed to be the other way round??

While I’m writing this my son has found me in the study and is now undoing his father’s shoe-laces. I’m not stopping him because well, he’s not bothering me is he? Sneaky huh?
