I met this boy in a chatroom and soon enough we became good acquaintances.. and now it has been over 10 years and we can comfortably call ourselves close friends. In all this while I think we have met like 3 or 4 times. We almost thought we would meet only after every ten years because that was how it seemed to be. We met initially and then we met 10 years later. By the 10th year we had graduated from burgers to dinners , students to professionals 😀 😛
So why am I discussing this man today, because one day ten or so years ago he sent me a link to his online page where he had his jottings and asked me to read. I did and commented in the space provided as well. At that moment I had no clue what this platform was.
It was his blog. I think that was the moment I came to know about blogs, blogging and subsequently start one on my own.. it has been a long time here on this platform starting from that post I read on his page. There have been many more such friends, blogs, blog comments, discussions. The best part is, there is always friend I’ve met via blogging in every city, these days so visiting a new city is something I look forward to, to walk into their homes, and feel at home even if that is the first time ever we have met in person outside the blogs and/or chats
The said boy has almost stopped writing… but he has taken resolutions this year to look lovingly towards his blog more often.
Why this post out of the blue… because a few days ago over a conversation on our fav platform FB, I got to know where this blog trail started… his friends, him, me.. my friends ….
To quirky, insightful posts and comments from all of us.. a toast.
words meeting people,
people meeting people,
people meeting words..
and the journey continues…
