WriteTribe Festival of Words Day 2- Some Blog Love



I'm taking part in the Write Tribe Festival of Words -3
Day 2 Prompt- Blog Love

I started blogging in 2010 but I knew nothing about blogging, apart from the fact that I had to write my words in the Compose section and then click on publish. I was aware that my posts were there somewhere , buried deep under the pile of blogs in the World Wide Web but I was pretty sure that not one single soul actually read what I had written.

Then in 2012 I was introduced to Blogger forums and my blog had sort of a rebirth. I absolutely loved writing for contests and although I never won, my spirits were not dampened. 

It was during this time that I started reading other blogs and one of the blog that I absolutely loved was of Dhanya Venugopal, who is a popular blogger too in blogosphere. This post of Dhanya remains fresh in my mind even today. I remember the first time she commented on my blog, I was ecstatic. I hope that she gets back to blogging soon.

Then, there were other bloggers whose posts were an absolute delight to read because they simply brightened my day but unfortunately they have stopped blogging due to personal reasons. Sujatha Satya from Conversations and Sahana from Ahamkaara are two of the wonderful bloggers who I wish returned to writing.

Nabanita (who needs no introduction in blogosphere) is one blogger whose stories take me to a different world and her love stories are marvelous and heart-warming.  

Another blogger whose posts never fail to bring a smile on my lips is Red Handed. Despite the fact that she blogs anonymously people can still relate to her post and that is the sheer power of her writing.

Seeta Bodke  is a writer who can write on current affairs, social issues, book reviews and fiction with equal √©lan.  She is one writer whose strength lies in her simple but compelling writing.

A few months back I came across a Photo blog by Deepa Prabhu and I absolutely loved her creative captures and I often hop over to her blog to admire her clicks.

I know there are so many wonderful bloggers out in the blogosphere and although I do read them and appreciate their writing, the bloggers I have mentioned above have influenced me in the virtual world to write better and keep blogging despite my hectic schedule.
