Its been quite a while since I logged in to blogland… though there aren’t any excuses for the prolonged absence, other than pure laziness, I’d like to clarify: there’s been a lot going on in my life, which, cumulatively, can become quite overwhelming at times…
     Blogging is a passion.. Its’ a significant attribute and so, I couldn’t possibly stay away from it for long.. I started my blog last December. It was inactive during the first few months.. and it was only sometime around May-June that I started becoming an avid blogger. Counting onwards from May, my blog is a mere 3 months old.. and yet, its’ been a fascinating journey.. one, that I have cherished immensely. I think the best part of blogging is to stumble upon other people’s blogs that are wholesome jewels lying randomly in the stardust of blogland. The experience is a blessing.. it is highly “educating”, to say the least!
     Along the way, I’ve made a lot of acquaintances… Other bloggers whom I’ve come to admire greatly for their varied and polished skills. Strangely, despite the “virtual” element involved, there has developed a feeling of intimacy which is much gratifying. I think it has more to do with this no-holds-bar sharing and flow of intellect and creativity, than anything else!
     To name a few such immensely talented bloggers I’ve had the good fortune to bump into… Luther J Spells, Lorraine, Jayme, Paul Wylie, Charles, the hugely talented poets who post weekly in OSI.. (Typing as the names come randomly.. Pretty sure I missed out on a few. Hope I am forgiven!) At times, it can be really humbling to consistently come across brilliant compositions that lie much higher up in the poetic radar than mine, but on second thoughts, its an honour to get to read such awesome literary treats, on such a regular basis!
     Due to my brief absence from blogland, its’ been a while since I have been to the blogs where I am an otherwise frequent visitor. My apologies. I am back to blogging, with a vengeance, to make up for lost time! Now, am off to bloghop! Happy blogging everyone!!

  1. Hooray-DL is back in town! Looking forward to seeing some blogging vengeance!

  2. Welcome back to the fray Dark Lord 🙂

  3. Thank you for the mention DL, but I’m far from being any good at blogging. I can’t compare to those you mentioned and numerous others you didn’t. I’m humbled by your vote of confidence though.

    I’m starting classes in a couple of weeks, so I can’t put as much heart and passion into my blogging since I can’t make it a priority. I will improve with inspiration from fellow bloggers like you and am committed to working to become the best I can be.

    Take care blogging friend, and I hope the greatest for your future!

  9. I was truly concerned but happy now to see you back. You are a huge inspiration for me to become a better person and to advance in my passion to write. For most of my life I never knew the joys and peace it could bring. As I step into a new chapter of life I bring with me new friends and new goals. I thank you for mentioning me, but I must say, without your encouragement among the many others as well of course, I would not feel the motivation I feel to continue and grow. Welcome back my friend.
