Random writers !

Randomness of events lead me to write this very random blog post. And the random question for the today is – “When & why did I start blogging ?”

The ideal category of people aim for something & start working towards it. But, the abnormal souls like me juggle through too many things & then stick to one of the many choices.

 Year 2010, just graduated & was awaiting my job joining. Addicted to reading over internet brought me to the world of blogging.The decision to start writing blog myself was a random choice. I was habitual of filling pages with anecdotes, poems, feelings & what not. So, why not start writing online ? You can read my first post here.

 First few thoughts were – it looks easy, so many people write, even I can do it. And, I could not have been more wrong. It’s not that simple a job. It’s your brainchild & you need time to nurture it. Thus came a long break, even before I had taken proper steps in blogging world.

What did I do in all these dormant years ?

Job & Travel. Read loads of traveler blogs & obvious realization hit me that I too wanted to share my travel stories with the world. So here I am, looking forward to connecting with others & making amateur efforts to inject bug of travelling in people. 🙂

This was my story & would love to hear your reasons for blogging.

Real goals for the year 2016

New Year resolutions – the much hyped term used year after year by us humans to define our goals. Each year I make ‘new year resolutions’ & fail to follow them after a month. I remember at times I had lost my goals in just one week of the New Year. So, this time I have two set of goals – the usual ones & the real ones.

The usual ones are almost same for everyone:

  • To adopt healthy lifestyle
  • To start exercising (the most common goal I guess)
  • To improve oneself professionally

I have had these same goals for years unknown. That’s why I needed something more practical this time. The goals which are closer to my heart, the ones which I know I will follow without making much fuss about them. So, the “Real Goals of 2016” for me are :

  • To learn the local language – I have been in this city for almost a year and yet to learn the language. Surviving in different cities is easier provided you know how to converse with native people. And, if by any change you are bitten by travel bug, then knowing the local language is a blessing.
  • To start running – I have participated in two marathons & had great experience both times. It’s about time I take running seriously.
  • To study more – Okay, so I won’t lie. I am bit unsure at the moment what I want to study now. But I will think of something soon.
  • To travel more – Well, who does not like travelling?

And finally, the most important & dearest goal is

  • To blog regularly – Will begin with goal for one blog a week & gradually try to spend more time writing. Can’t say about others, but I have seen my thoughts vanish for a long stretch of time.

Hmm, I have made short goals so they should not be that difficult to follow. Can someone tell me how do you just stick your goals throughout the year?

Do comment and let me know if you also have similar goals or face the same dilemma as me of forgetting the goals…
