I wrote my 200th post

Hey everyone! Hope everyone is doing great. And wish that you all achieve great success in all the spheres of your life.

I just made it to the 200th post. How do I feel? Great! considering that I had not considered writing or blogging a year and a half back. The credit goes not to me but to all my readers and blogger friends. When I had first published my first post “Who Am I?” on October 2nd, 2013 I had no idea that I would be posting a 200th post. But, I did. I saw the posts where other bloggers had posted their 200th post and now I share the same feeling of happiness on making it to the 200th post.

I would like to thank all my readers and blogger friends who have encouraged me to write and kept up with my childish scribbles…at times. Although when I had started I didn’t expect anyone to follow me and only hoped to be read. But people at WordPress are a kind lot they not only supported an amateur like me but showered their likes, accepted my writings and quickly pressed the follows button. They were also kind enough to add their thoughts to the comment section.

I used to wonder how anyone could reach to the 200th post. I used to be amazed and happy for the others who had. In my view they were great writers, they had to be. I was happy on their achievement and very quietly say to myself, “Well someday even I’ll reach their.”

I became so addicted to WordPress and blogging and writing. In the hours when I had nothing else to do I would walk to my laptop almost in spell and login to WordPress.  The small yellow stars (the old format where they used to twinkle instead of the present notification bell) became a symbol of appreciation, comments a way to chat with friends and follows a responsibility. I’ve always felt that a number added to the follows list is not a number but a person who has joined the community.

The thing is, it was not the number that I wanted to achieve, it was more than a number to me. I was falling in love with writing and so I kept writing and doing posts…and finally it was the 200th posts. Now, writing has become a part of my life. I don’t know when my small community became big. I don’t know when small number of likes became huge bundles of joy – joy, that somebody is reading my silly stuff. I don’t know when unknown people became friends – friends, whom I’ve not met.

So, I would like to thank the WordPress guys for giving me a creative space in this huge blogosphere. I’m certainly thankful to all my readers and blogger friends for visiting, reading, liking and commenting on my blog. I’m also thankful for the time of the viewers who visited and left as this blog dosen’t suit their need.was not the place to be.

People who have followed me long since would see that Emovere has changed much from prose to short stories to poems. And now as I’ve taken my liking to photography you could see more of that already. All I want to say is with the ever helpful community and positive people at WordPress I see my journey where I can learn from so many and at the same time share my own learnings and creativity with everyone.

As a token of my gratitude to whatever Emovere has given me I would like share my very first post with everyone. Here is the link: https://normashilpi.wordpress.com/2013/10/02/who-am-i/

Please enjoy reading and visiting Emovere as I’m always happy to see you’ll.

  1. First, congratulations, Norma! It is quite interesting to see the “evolution,” if you will, of a blog or writer across time, even a short time span of a year or two. BTW, I really like the idea of the “solitude of me,” and I get what you mean, philosophically, when your poem’s narrator says “I am nothing.” [Very Dickinsonesque, which is cool. And, as Keats’ epitaph, I think it is, says “here lies one whose name was writ in water,” and, of course, we’re pretty much all like that.] And, yet, even though I don’t know you IRL, you could never be “nothing.” 🙂 Of course, I enjoy reading you and seeing your photographs, for what that’s worth. Anyway, Norma, keep it up and best wishes into your bright future!
