International Blog Delurking Week 2021


Sometime back, my good friend Parul reminded me that it’s time for the International Blog Delurking Week -2021.

Every year during the first week of January, a group of bloggers participate in this exercise in an attempt to find out who their readers are. Basically, it’s an invitation to readers to visit their blogs and say a little Hi/Hello or leave a comment. I’ve said this before as well, that I’m always utterly grateful and blessed that even when the number of readers in my blog is dwindling, as they are, at certain times of the year, there will always be a few readers and fellow bloggers who will stop by to read, like and share my posts and more often than not, also leave some warm, encouraging comments to leave me enthused and encouraged about my writing and blogging, in general.

Since my first foray into the blogosphere some 6 years ago, I’ve often wondered about my purpose in creating this blog, wherein dwells my heart and soul. Some days, when doubts have assailed the mind, I’ve found myself tempted to go back and read what my readers have said about a certain post or even the blog. It has kept me feeling good and I’ve realised how much I enjoy being a part of such a vibrant writing community.

Today, I write this post addressed to each one of you, dear readers, who will be stopping by the blog and reading me today.

If you like visiting MySoultalks and happen to read my posts, (irrespective of whether you are a regular or an occasional visitor) may I please request you to let me know that you marked your presence here, as you stopped by.

If that sounds like a lot of work, you could consider leaving a quick Hello or a Hi and that would suffice too! πŸ™‚

This way, I get to know who my readers are and if you are leaving your link behind, it would be an absolute pleasure for me to return your kind gesture and stop by your blog too.Β 

On that note, dear readers, I wish you a beautiful Wednesday and a blessed week/month/year ahead. May this year find you in a better and happier space.Β 

With love, hugs and plenty of happy vibes,




Linking with Parul for this one. If you are a blogger and would like to join any time during the week, feel free to use the badge above and link to her post.

  1. Dropping in to say Hi and that I do pop in time to time. I am guilty of visiting blogs on the BAR thread only as and when they get listed there. Love your soul searching posts and do visit those whenever I see them on the thread Esha.

    1. Thank you so much, dear Shalz, for stopping by to say Hi and let me know that you stopped by. It’s always a pleasure to read you and zi look forward to your lovely comments that you leave on the blog from time to time. I think I must admit I too am guilty of visiting blogs that are listed on the BAR thread. I’d love to change that this year and try and read more blogs from bloggers and friends who’ve been writing some amazing stuff.

  2. Dropping by to say Hi and hoping to be more regular in this space. I love reading your soulful blogposts πŸ™‚

    1. Hi Suzana!

      So so lovely to see you here on the blog. I used to read you at least once a week when I was doing the #wordlesswednesday blog hop. Can’t tell you how crazy things have been since the middle of 2020! Dealing with multiple crises at the home front. But, I’m hoping I’ll be more regular with visiting other blogs this year.
      Wishing you a beautiful weekend too, my dear. Thanks so much for the kind words. See you here again, soon.

      Much love,

    1. Hi Christy! ** Waving right back!! **
      So lovely to see you stop by the blog today.
      Will hop over to yours too.
      Last year was tough. Hoping to read more new blogs this year.
      Bye for now

    1. Thank you for stopping by, Ramya! I’m good. How about you? Hope things are well with you too. πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks for stopping by the blog, Shilpa! I know I’m late, but here’s wishing you a very Happy New Year too. May this be a better year for all of us. Looking forward to seeing you here again. πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you so very much for stopping by and sharing your thoughts, Damyanti! I know it’s rather late, but here’s wishing you a very Happy New Year too. Yes, hoping 2021 brings us the much-needed respite from the after-effects of 2020! See you again, soon. πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks for reading, Jyothi and for leaving your lovely comments. I’m so happy you stopped by again, today and left those lovely words. Now that blogging has become a one-off thing as life takes precedence, reading and commenting on other blogs has also slowed down for me. I was struggling with multiple personal issues in 2020 so this year, I’ve resolved to be more regular and read more blogs. Thanks for stopping by today, Jyothi. See you here again. πŸ™‚
