365 Writing Prompts:Origin Story
Why did you start your blog? Is that still why you blog,or has your site gone in a different direction than you planned?
I started using the computer for my online course, I was busy studying and answering questions at the end of a lesson. One day our facilitator introduced us to the blog of one of our fellow participants, before this I had no idea what blogging meant.When I read his post I was interested, I asked our facilitator, was it possible for me to start blogging. His reply was positive.
I asked my daughter how I could start this, she looked up and found WordPress the best for me. I started slow, I was a novice,I had no idea what to write, I started with short posts and gradually wrote about different things.
I was lucky one of my course participants encouraged me to translate Tagore’s poems. I wasn’t confident but rather than say I cannot do it, I took it as a challenge. I have translated a number of poems of Tagore, and the participant took time to read it and wrote his comment which helped and encouraged me a lot.
I did not plan what I should do next, I registered to do some prompts, I still write them, each morning I wait for the topic and write, I have a small number of people who read my posts, their encouraging comments keeps me going!
