Why did I start my blog?

I started blogging when I read a post by one of my online classmates. It was something new to me. I didn’t even know the meaning of the word. I asked our online instructor if I would be able to start my own blog. He thought it’s a good idea.

Next I had no idea what I could write about. This time another online classmate said, ‘You are a Bengali, you can start translating Tagore’s poems.’ I took out Tagore’s book, sonchaita( a collection of Tagore’s writings) and translated some of his poems.

While translating poems, the thought of translating Tagore’s songs made me think, perhaps it would certainly be of interest to some bloggers. And it did.

I then felt I should find out what else I could write about. I was thrilled to find out, I can write using WordPress daily prompts. This is where I did some courses. I enjoyed writing a variety of poems.

Right now I’m using 365 days prompts to write. I’m learning a lot and enjoying it.
