Everyone loves more of what they have, be it money, success, fame, popularity, or even followers and blog stats. I am no exception. I have had some followers on this blog, some regular visitors and some very helpful well-wishers. These people have read me constantly, have suggested me areas of improvement and have been true friends in channelising my randomness.
This is not an end of the odyssey. This is not the end of my blogging career. In fact, it is a kind of a new start. I would like to think of this more as a transition to something better, to something more ambitious for the future. It is, in fact, because of this constant encouragement and support from people that I have been able to take this step.
I am now making this transition from WordPress to Blogger. I am moving to post, primarily on Blogger, as my posting platform. Why, you ask? Well, I don’t have any specific reasons. But the basic and the most obvious difference is connection to Google. WordPress works independently from Google, but Blogger doesn’t. WordPress has some hassles with AdSense, but Blogger doesn’t, as far as I know.
While it is true that I had not started writing this blog with a specific purpose, I also realise that there could be something more in store. I need not have a specific topic or a specific theme to adhere to. In fact, randomness could be my theme, as a friend recently pointed out to me. It could be my constant learning platform for everything in the world. I did not start writing with a view to attract visitors or earn money or become famous, but now that I realise that I am at least decent at what I do, I am willing to take the chance of expanding my horizons.
So, all my dear friends and well-wishers, I hope to see you all on the Blogger page that I have created – Random Musings. This is where I will be active for most of my writing time. Please use the “Follow by Email” widget to be notified of any new posts. You could also bookmark the page and come back to it later. I think it will be easier for you to comment there using your Google ID and also keep a track of updates when you follow the blog.
I hope to see you all there and seek your continued support and encouragement, as I begin a new journey of writing on a new platform. I hope it leads me on a very fruitful and productive Odyssey of Camaraderie.
