1st BLOG ANNIVERSARY

Today was the day one year ago, that I started on this life-changing journey in this blogging world. And today, I feel proud to have been welcomed by the amazing people here. Not all discover this place, not all experience the joy of writing here, not all experience the elation to meet new people, not all are into blogging, not all gain the gifts it has in store for all of us, free and impartial.

 

Last year, this same day, I had my last Board exam. The year had been going the worst. I had never ever experienced such mental issues in my life. But, today I can proudly say that I have moved on far from that state of me, far from that dark era, far from that low-point. And I have won over it, if not completely, then at least I can say that I am almost over it now.

 

My introduction to this beautiful corner of universe made me realise that Internet is not just entertainment or those social media accounts or just Google or just the researches that we do for our projects. It is so much more than that. To have stumbled up and landed on this site was one of the best parts of my life and I am 200% sure that I would never regret this decision.

 

Even after getting pretty good results in Boards, there was something that was constantly bothering me, even I didn’t know exactly what it was. I had shared many of my feelings and also about my condition on my blog and when I heard the same stories in a different way from other fellow-bloggers, I gained some confidence. I read about how they coped with their problems and it made me think how much these guys have strength in them. Those bloggers inspired me to strive to work for my well-being. And I tried. But it was not within a day that I changed.

 

To be a part of the teen community which consists of people with such brilliant minds is something which binds me to WordPress. I am the kind of person who knows the virtual threats, but still doesn’t step back to make friends online whom I have never met. And trust me, the risk is worth it if you have the confidence to handle problems in this virtual world, if any.

 

The last one year of my life can be termed as the ‘Internet’ era. Yes, not just WordPress, but there’s this another site that I have been very active on. And that is Quora. This is a question-answer website where I read really attractive answers to different varieties of questions from many amazing people. And I have had nice conversations with a few of them. Trust me, meeting and socializing with people, and and and learning something from each of them is the best thing you can do to yourself while just having a simple chat with people. By writing just now about inspirations, I remembered something that I wanna share with y’all.

 

This blog has given me two nice friends. And they are the ones whom I have been missing from quite some time.

These are Amy from Every Word You Say and Rachel from everythingrachel1. These girls have become my net-buddies. But they are inactive here from quite a long time. Amy is probably busy at her University for which she was really excited from so long. So, if any of you guys read this, I wanna tell you that I have been missing you and I want you to update me with all the happenings of your lives! 😉

 

I had always wanted to voice my thoughts. And this blog has given me that channel. And somewhat it has made me addicted here on WP. Now addiction doesn’t mean that I post daily. But, if I have got something to say and it’s an important issue for me I will definitely put it up here. And this gives me so much freedom and independence.

 

I love exploration. And when I explored this site which I had become a fan of, I recommended it to my friends and three of them have followed my recommendation and have started their own blog. One hasn’t written anything yet though, but the other two have 2 and 1 posts respectively. I am sure if you guys follow them, it will motivate them to write more.

So here are their links. Please check if you are free now!

So, coming up to my journey again. Well, nothing much is left to tell you know. But yeah, as I have said in my earlier post, I would like to write it again.

 

Writing has helped me eradicate my worries, my tensions, my mind’s preoccupation, my sadness, my anguish, my outbursts of frustration.

 

Starting a blog made me curious to explore the internet world more. The past year, I have started reading books. But the ones I actually enjoy are the books which are not written by those pro-authors, but they are no less than the pros. They are like you and me. Probably busy in their schools or colleges or initial years of job. But again, like you and me, they also find time to pursue their passion. They write and they beautifully write.

So, I would like to tell you about another site that I have been using past maybe 6 months. The site is BookRix.com. This is a site where anyone can have their own books published in the form of an e-book. And they are super-fun to read.

I have read a Howl In the Night by Lorelei Sutton –  a common fantasy story of werewolves. But what makes such books special for me is the personal touch that the authors give to the characters. So relatable and so attractive characters that you long for those qualities to become yours. This is true not only for the story that I have told you about, but I think it is true for almost all the books at BookRix coz the authors there, are people of our age. And that is the most striking feature that appeals to us to logon there and read some amazing stuff. I am currently reading the MoonCreak series by J A Booker. If you feel like, you can search these books there on BookRix.

 

So, yeah, that was all that I wanted to share about me and my one year long journey here on my lovely blog Desire To Express.

 

I hope this journey continues as long as I live and every year becomes special and each year I learn something more, earn something from here more and experience something from here more, much more than this year.

 

I hope this Teen Community of such amazing people flourishes more and does something good to someone.

 

Cheers to WordPress!

Cheers to all the Bloggers!

 

Thank you all so much for walking by me on this beautiful, magnificent, mesmerizing and a life-changing journey.

 

And, Congratulations to me for my Blog’s 1 year anniversary!!!! J

 

Love You All

1 MONTH ANNIVERSARY

Oh my God!
I had just forgotten that today it has been exactly 1 month since I started my blog and I’m pretty glad about it.
Yaaayyyyyyyyyyyyyy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Writing has always helped me eradicate my worries, my tensions, my mind’s preoccupation, my sadness, my anguish, my outbursts of frustration, etc…etc……
I thank all of the co-bloggers to have found time and read my blog.
Thank you so much. It gives me immense pleasure that there are people with whom I can share what I feel without the fear of what they might think about me-coz they are unknown but so close to heart, and slowly will become friends-coz they have helped me in the most difficult time of mine by reading what I want to express.
Really, I read on the internet that to come out of depression or sadness , out of many ways, one way which is found in almost every website giving suggestions on this topic that- you should pen down your feelings or you can even start a blog!
And now, being a blogger I assure you it does- a lot!
It Is not that I read this suggestion and then started to blog. NO!
I had always wanted to express myself and so I started.
Well in this 1 month, there were many many hard times. But whenever I thought I was in a state of writing something, I wrote and then published it immediately and waited for any response.
And it made me really joyful to see “ _______ likes your post _____” or “ ________ is now following your blog ‘desiretoexpress’ “.
Really thanks a lot to all of you who are reading my blog, thank you all my followers.
I am quite interested in knowing people around the world, knowing them, their culture, the places where they live , and so on………. they just amaze me. And wordpress gives me just the perfect place to do so.

Well, my co-bloggers, I have a problem to share with all of you.map
I am an Indian.
And I noticed that in the ‘TRAFFIC INDICATOR MAP’ in our dashboards, India’s map is wrong. It shows a part of northern India in Pakistan and another northern part in China.
Please help me , what can I do to get the map correct???
Please do let me know.
Love
Sheetal
