Who Am I And Why Am I here?

Today’s assignment: write and publish a “who I am and why I’m here” post on your blog.

Note: This post is in response to Blogging University Blogging 101 course.

My name is Anand and I live in India. I started scribbling my ideas in 2003 in notebooks to increase my perceptivity. Those notebooks kept growing in time and I was not able to manage them. I burnt them, threw them away at unknown places and sold them to peddlers, still their memories kept haunting me. Then I started frequenting online forums in 2008 and it became easier as I relied less and less on notebooks. In 2011, I started keeping a blog for the same on Google’s Blogger. In July, 2015, I switched to WordPress when a friend suggested. This was a great breakthrough for blogging. As I joined Blogging University Blogging 101 course in August this year, I came to meet many new friends and learnt many things to improve myself as a blogger.

  • Why are you blogging publicly, rather than keeping a personal journal?

Getting feedback on your ideas is key to your growth as a person, thinker and a writer. Systems which are closed and don’t get feedback collapse very soon. I need feedback and discussion to thrive as a human being and thinker. I also want to help others with my writings. Unless I blog publicly and interact with others–there is no chance to reach out to others and help. I feel, listening others attentively helps them and sometimes even heals them. I feel we can build a great society if we all listen each other attentively. Blogging publicly helps me listen others!

  • What topics do you think you’ll write about?

I will mostly write about Mysticism, Spirituality, Psychology, Healing, Movies, Meditation and Astrology. Sometimes I will share personal anecdotes and inspiring quotations. I will also take part in blogging events and challenges and respond to prompts from various sources.

  • Who would you love to connect with via your blog?

Everyone. I would love to know people from all walks of life. I would also love to contact other people who want to help others selflessly.

  • If you blog successfully throughout the next year, what would you hope to have accomplished?

I don’t know. I enjoy blogging everyday. I hope to interact with many more people. Listen to many more people and make some really good friends and help create a better Blogosphere and society.

  1. You have a firm understand of what you write. I began journaling on paper years Go. I still use notebooks for gathering my thoughts. Sometime I think better through the tip of a pencil. I always use a pencil, because I know I can change words if I feel the need to.

    1. Thanks for your kind words Scott. I used pencil for a long period of time when I was in college, primarily because it gave me a great speed which pen didn’t. I rarely used to look back on scribbles those days. Now I don’t use pen and paper as often but I do use them. Have a great week ahead 🙂

      Love and light ❤

  2. Wow Anand. You have such a way with words and your writing reflects who you are as a person. I have only just started writing on the Blogging 101 course. I was quite busy on another web site writing pages, and every day the Blogging 101 posts came up in my email, so finally I relented and decided to get involved and I am so glad that I have. I have already started to meet some amazing people.
    This article feels familiar to me. I also wrote pages and pages of notes. I haven’t burned all mine yet. Maybe I will be able to pull out some of my note books and use some of that material and complete some of my work. Great writing Anand.

    1. Thank you so much 🙂 You are very kind. You did the right thing by joining this amazing course. It also changed my whole outlook on blogging. I met more people online than I had met ever before. I heartily thank you for your kind words. Your writing is also so beautiful and I am sure you will get a lot of material from your previous scribblings for your blog 🙂

      Love and light ❤

    I’m glad there is someone else who shares my obsession with notebooks! I agree with you – there is a saying that when you talk you are only saying what you already know, but when you listen you will learn. X

  5. Fantastic post Vibrant. I think the concepts you are discussing hold relevance for everyone. Our connections with other people make who are individually, and help shape our souls. I’m very glad I found you as I’m exploring the nature of God, how the universe works, emotionally bonding with others and I’m sure I’m going to learn a thing or two from you. A pleasure to make your acquaintance,

      Love and light ❤
