DP Daily Prompt: Recently Acquired

What’s the most important( or interesting, or unexpected) thing about blogging you know today that you didn’t know a month ago.

I started blogging over two years ago. I had no idea what it was or what the word meant, fortunately a participant from my online course started blogging. I read his post and thought how remarkable, one can actually write posts on different subjects and people take time to read it and write their comments. This is awesome I whispered to myself. Then it occurred to me can I write something too,and will other bloggers read my post?

I asked my online course facilitator if I also could  start blogging like Robert? He said,”yes you should.”

I asked my daughter she signed me up with WordPress, according to her it is the best one. I started blogging in June 2012.

What I learned is unbelievable, writing posts, poetry or prose anything goes. Then there are prompts supplied by WordPress daily, which is awesome, it requires a little bit of thinking,once I got used to it, I wrote as much as my brain would co-operate, sometimes a whole lot,  other times not so much.

I sometimes wonder about my blogger friend Leslie and Sonya, I don’t know how they come up with such great poems, my writing looks pale compared to theirs, I’m contented with what I can do. You know everyone cannot do as well as Wordsworth, Shakespeare or William Henry Davies, I certainly am not in their league, I enjoy it, thinking I must be thankful for what I can do.

The above is my story of blogging, my thanks to Robert for showing me the way, to Leslie who is always encouraging me.I’m grateful to my friends, who read my posts regardless of how good or bad they are,only because Ranu wrote it and we must continue to follow her blog,is I think what motivates them!

  1. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for sharing this nice post. Every day, I look forward to your blogging. Every day, I read your posts. Every day, you bring light into the world by sharing your experiences, ideas, thoughts, and posts here. Thank you for doing it 🙂

    All good wishes,


  2. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for sharing your blogging journey. I also started around the same time as you did, May 2012. I find blogging has really opened my eyes to a new world and I met some amazing people including yourself.

    Although some of my poems come from observation, I love the use of prompts. Everyone’s form of art is unique and your writing is no less than anyone else’s. I like your little stories and am impressed by the way you tackle some prompts that I would find very difficult.

    Keep it up!

  3. Ranu, I wrote about light in my haiku today. You are a light to me (and I know others). I always feel a warm smile radiating from you and your visits. I learn from your honesty and am encouraged to keep going. Blogging is many things but what I have gained are a bouquet of friends – each one precious!

    • Dear Leslie,
      Sometimes when I read your poems, I’m not sure how to write my comment,
      it feels as if my comment may ruin the beauty of it, this is the main
      reason I feel better to click the like button, although it doesn’t really tell
      how I feel.
      You have always been very kind and you have encouraged me to continue writing,
      which I do, thank you for your help.
