70. Thankyou WordPress… – From a Typewriter

33 Comments

I still remember, it was the 19th evening, in the month of April in 2014, I opened an account in WordPress and posted my first post ‘Live And Let Live’. I was inspired and continuously pushed by some of my close friends, whose continuous encouragement led me to open my mind before you all here. Before that, I used to pen down my thoughts in my diaries, poured my feelings and emotions in letters to my near and dear ones, shared my thoughts in group chats, composed pieces and forwarded to close friends, and they loved them. Which was why they suggested me to do something with my thoughts seriously. I kept on ignoring them for long, but how long..??

I asked my head, and it said “No, it’s your passion, and you yourself enjoy it, you should keep this much for yourself atleast.” I then asked my heart, it said, “Yes, if your thoughts are spreading good vibes, happiness, love and understandings then why not..?? You are not harming anyone, you are just opening up and sharing your words in your own way to your world. That way you’ll get to learn a lot, acquiring knowledge as well, take it as a service towards you and yours.”

The heart won, as ever. I had to give in.

My old and my new diaries, are my dearies, very close to my heart. I love them more than myself. I wish, when I die, my people drop my pages into my pyre, so that my words turn to ashes along with me, as I want to burn along with my pages. I also love to read other’s handwritten pieces, I love to write with my pen in my hand. That’s so much of ‘we’ there, because we have ‘our touch’ on the pages and on each and every word of ours. But opening up my scribbles and thoughts out to the outer world, in such a large platform here, I never ever thought of. So, when I finally did this, I was not at all that serious about writing here that much as well, as I used to do in my diary.

Initially, I used to feel too lazy to open the shutter of this Press. I just opened my laptop once in a while, at irregular intervals, may be after months, tried exploring some nittygritties of this place, understood few, couldn’t get many of them. Once in a while, I typed some random thoughts crossing my mind, copied some of my old works, some short stories from my diary, worked on some old writeups here in order to store them and that’s it..!! Again closed down the shutter.

Suddenly, in the last quarters, last year ie.. during the later part of 2017, my phone popped up a notification from my App store, informing me that the WordPress house has opened an App for phones as well. I felt inquisitive. I downloaded the app and since then there’s no looking back. It was so user friendly that I started dropping in here with three/four posts a day. Got addicted to spending a lot of me-time here with you all.

Untill then, I found my me-times mostly with my diaries, but of late I’m here with you all now. Completing the daily chores of life, meeting other’s demands and expectations, when I am expected to be dozing off, I go so fresh with the world’s words here.

Got to know from here that there are still lots and lots of thinking souls in this world. So many great souls, so many humble minds, loveful thoughts, positive vibes still here on this earth. Completely contrary to where my thoughts were gradually taking me towards, before being active in this Press. Thus, my whole idea changed after I came to read and get to know you all (virtually though..) here. Untill then, I found lifeless ( lifeless as in., out of their minds, without conscience, without thoughts..) clones everywhere,. I feel ashamed, I am SO SO SORRY for that to myself. Now I find so many noble minds all around. People may seem different till we get to read their minds, and that’s what happened with me. This Press has turned my negative and hopeless feelings about the larger world out there, and its people into positivity, helped me read the minds of so many people, whom I am sharing this planet, its air, water and the soil with. It has stopped me being judgemental. It has helped me feel happy to be on this earth once again.

I am not a poet, I am not a writer. I am a simple soul, I just love to think, Philosophy being my pet subject. I love to think about people, their thoughts, their ways of handling difficult situations, and the philosophies of all of our lives. My words are very very simple, down to earth, they are very much the words-next-door. I know nothing about the beautification and ornamentation of words, my word-stock is much limited, and I am very much aware of that. But believe me, my mind loves to spread positivity in its own simple ways.

Thank you WordPress, for the much needed exposure I got here, serving me so many supportive followers, without whose constant love and inspiration my journey here won’t have been possible. Not to count their numbers, not to count their likes, the fact that they are reading my not-so-worthy words, bearing and appreciating my not-so-special works, is more than enough for me.

Today on my 70th post, I felt like thanking this awesome Press for each and every beautiful moments it served me.
I came here to share, if not words, to share my thoughts.. hence, named myself Thoughtsmith.

I don’t write, I just type here.. Hence, I brought before you The Typewriter.
