You all know that this is not my first blog post. I have written loads of them; and their frequency has increased a lot lately. But this has something to do with my first post on this blog. There’s this blog game and I’ve been tagged by Ratz from ‘What Can I Say!’ where we have to repost our first blog post. That’ll help the readers know how much of the writer and the writing has changed since the first post. I’m going to oblige. Also, I’d love to know how much has changed. I can’t seem to figure (much of) it out myself!
But before I repost, I must tag five other people to play along. So here are the others...
1. FM at Balamiya’s Calamities
2. Erika at Dear Dear Closet
3. Ekanthapadhikan at The Truth About Me-self
4. Kellie at kelleidoscope
5. Melissa at Little Mrs. Married
So here’s what my first post was!

Every time I went through an emotion; a very strong one, be it happiness or extreme sorrow I have felt the need to pen it down. And this led to a lot of diaries with only the first few pages filled as I could never write about my feelings on a regular basis. Although these ‘Dear Diary’ moments have been very frequent in my life, I had been too busy brooding about them to actually do anything else.
And one day a friend introduced me to blogspot. It sounded very interesting. The very fact that you could have your own web page and write stuff about your own life was fascinating. And today, after yet another emotional debacle I couldn’t resist having one for myself.
The worst part is, now that I have actually begun to write, I am at a loss for words, which is very very weird since I am known as the talker who can’t shut up even when specifically asked to. But knowing that I have an unrestricted outlet to release my thoughts (this one being the second) gives me a little more comfort. Also, the fact that these frequent outbursts of sentiments will be a permanent record is an added advantage as they will serve as memoirs (hopefully having a complete account and all the pages filled this time...)
There… Now tell me how much has changed!! And those of you tagged, play along!! :)
