Day 1: I Pledge to Blog….

October 1, 2011

I love to write. Yes I do. Of course if you look at my blogging history, I would just go behind that chair and hide….

So I began this blog in September 2008 in a bid to overcome the boredom at my workplace (no you gossip mongers, I am not telling you the name…). I realized I was wasting a lot of time on Facebook and not doing anything constructive with my brain. I brushed the dust off my Writer’s side of the brain and started this little world of mine!

Of course for the next 2 years I was super regular. And then I changed jobs and with that went away my “free time” to write! (RIP, my friend, RIP) Work got crazy.. I got crazier.. and life as I knew it, had changed. No, don’t get me wrong. I am not complaining. Professionally, life only got better. Personally, it got busier. But somewhere, deep inside that Writer’s side of brain, something was not right! I missed writing. I missed expressing through words. I missed going on thesaurus and searching for the right word for “Great“. I missed the word play. That is all I did. Missed. Believe me, I am not making excuses when I use the most cliched line known to mankind… “I did not get the time…“. Oh! And I also, occasionally, suffered from “Writer’s Block“.

And then, *drumroll* Writer’s God sent Blog-o-holics United to my rescue!!! The beautifully talented team of 8 got together from different part of India (and World too, I think…) to Blog for An Entire Month! YaY.. I predict, this shall be the end of my hiatus from writing.

It is interesting to see how the Enigmatic Eight (coz no other adjective with an ‘E’ fitted with Eight… yes! I roll like that!) with different points of views, ideas, writing styles and minimal connection with each other – got to one common platform for the good of the humanity…alright not really ‘humanity‘ but at least for the good of the Writer in them.

Lets meet the Enigmatic Eight then, shall we? And you.. yes You.. make sure you are subscribed to each of these amazing personalities. You really dont wanna miss the writing action for the next month! We are going to take over the Blogging World (trust me!) with our wit, charm, words and topics of discussion.


I am extremely excited with lots of butterflies and other funny species in my stomach. It is going to be a tough challenge.. no doubt! With the aforementioned “crazy life“, it may not be easy. But this team is so fabulously encouraging.. I know I can achieve a “Day 30” with pride! 🙂
There are some new styles of writing I am going to explore.. some new topics… not sure how it will turn out, but you will encourage me, right? *flutters eyelashes*
For now… this is Day 1 and I am going to be a “Blog-o-holic” for the rest of the 30 days! 🙂

    hey there, Like your style of writing…I kind of share a similar story…created a blog in 2008. Posted pathetic stuff and then I got a job which gave me a lot of time to write. And now again, am hopping….:-)!!!! Cheers!!!

    P.S. BTW, my name is Meghna and not Megha 🙂

I guess we all have matured as writer.. yes feels good to be called a writer(blogger)… and here we are playing this game.. waiting for the stuff to unfold … Bring it on.. keep the excitement going.. Cheers BlogOholics Utd. the Enigmatic 8.. )
