Right after the anniversary of our Independence Day comes another. This blog is four today.
Anniversaries, like new year’s days are generally Janus moments. We being liners perceivers of time, we tend to look backwards and forwards. A few like Chavie points out some fundamental facts about the here and now.
The fourth year of a personal blog doesn’t contain much to warrant for profoundness. I seem to be regarded as some sort of authority on radar building, Google Earth stuff on Sri Lanka, and perhaps Sri Lankan vehicle graphics. All of which are purely unintentional consequences of doing what the voices in my head tell me (as if I have a choice). However it continues to be fun and the voices are letting me be. Which is a relief since this is another bout of days where I barely have a moment to check email — let alone login to the blog and clear the spam filter.
Such pauses makes me wonder which stage of blogging I’m at right now. In a way I don’t care. There’s plenty of posts waiting to be written. When (not if) I get the time. I do feel a tug towards the imaginary (your DFP correspondent will be quite active I think). I will of course try to ground myself with some satellite geography.
I don’t want to turn this post into another meander about “what I’ve learned from 4 years of blogging”. I enjoy pecking out the words coagulating in the head. I’m quite humbled, honoured and amazed (I do mean it) that anyone actually bothers to read this blog. An act of endurance given my lack of proof reading, jerky style (this post is an example) and many other ailments.
To all of you: a big thank you for reading. 🙂
In keeping with tradition here’s the link to my first ever blog post. Time to show yours 😀
