I'm Old!



Last week I completed a year in Blogosphere. Though it’s a great feeling but I would love to be a newbie again, it was so much fun. Now I am old, a year old here. Expectations have increased manifolds, there is less scope for mistakes and no pampering. 

Last year was one of the best in my life - I was interviewed, given awards, won a contest, called for a discussion on a TV Channel, Editors featured my posts. It was a learning experience for me, I evolved with every writing. I didn’t take the criticism to my heart or the appreciation to my head. I imbibed everything in my art and tried to become a better author. I took this journey with a mission to reach out to my audience and touch their hearts with creativity. I’m glad with the response I received from all of you. It has been a humbling experience. Thank you for being a part of my life!

I aspire to take my work to the next level in the coming year, starting with “Rousing Cadence,” which is releasing on 27th June, 2012.

Signing off with what I believe in - “There is no good or bad author; there is only one kind of an author, that who connects with the readers.”

  1. I must say you know the art of connecting with your reader and you are great motivator too because you woke up this Kumbhkarna from his sleep by giving your personal references. You are right expectation is very high. Whatever happened in last year was just the trailer, movie is yet to be realease.
    So my best wishes is always with you and congratulation for Rousing Cadence:)
    TC & keep flying:)

  12. Dear Saru,
    Congratulations on your first Blogoversary! I know how it feels to be one year old...I celebrated my first Blogoversary in January of this year. You should be commended for what you have achieved so far. I wouldn't say you're old, but now more experienced (smile). Things can only get better from here on out. Wishing you all the very best with "Rousing Cadence" and much success and enjoyment for many more years to come. I love what you said in closing...so true! Thanks for sharing.

  30. 'I didn’t take the criticism to my heart or the appreciation to my head. I imbibed everything in my art and tried to become a better author. I took this journey with a mission to reach out to my audience and touch their hearts with creativity.'

    If you are taking criticism to your mind for learning and improvement and appreciation to your heart,not only your mission would be achieved ,but you would surely win the hearts and minds of your readers.

    Many many congratulations and all the good the wishes to you.
