One day a fruit seller while passing through a village enters into an empty street. He stops by under a tree shadow to take some rest. Then after taking some rest and drinking water he starts dancing for himself.
While he is focused dancing, a group of street kids watch him from distance and slowly come closer, sit down quietly and don’t interrupt. When the guy ends his dance, he finds the kids sitting there. He passes them a smile. Children ask him to dance again, but he has to go.
But inside him, he promise that he would come again in the street and dance for himself (and the kids would enjoy too). He irregularly visits the street, sometime once a week, once a month and sometime even after several months.
He’s not coming back to dance because of the children’s amusement but because of himself. He knows he should be doing it regularly.
I am the fruit seller. This blog is the street. Writing is like dancing for me. You’re the kids. Hello kids! I’m in the street again.
Remember that I used to write, sometime quite frequently. But it hasn’t been happening for some time now.
Part of that is because I am really busy at Hometown. Part of that is I have been lazy about, and was finding it difficult writing at personal level. Also (believe it or not) part of that is because I no longer like this platform as much. Everytime I or someone landed on my website. It would show you some really silly and unrelated Ads on my page. So I was looking into a new place for my writing.
So my blog is moving to SVBTLE. It is a new kind of magazine platform and they are trying to make it easier for people to share and discover new ideas. Part of that includes helping writers (like me) with copy editing and fast-checking. I think I am gonna use them to improve my writing skills.
Good thing is that my blog address will still be waqasali.me and you can also subcribe via email. So let’s see how it goes and thank you for sticking and riding along.
When 2013 started, I planned to write a worthy for myself and everyone who follows my blog. But look, here we are, 70 solid days has passed and I couldn’t write that GREAT post.
I have realized that just because we haven’t time / energy / skills to execute a perfect shot we miss so many of easier but worth doing tasks. The same has been happening on my blog too. I could have written something.
It is not the case that I was all disconnected from writing, I wrote a story, 100s of emails, tweets, and hand written notes.
I get challenged by writing, almost all the time. But this is among all the good reasons I write for.
The purpose of this post is to say Hello to you, and tell that I’m okay, and I’m here again.
Trying again and again (in writing) is norm for me.
