Even before I could realise it, 2023 arrived and it is here!
It was an eventful year—2022—that brought into our lives, a mixed bag of experiences, full of joy, wisdom, heartbreak, losses and learnings! What a year again!
It is time, therefore, that we bring in renewed hope and enthusiasm, as we find ourselves at the start of another year of blogging, writing, sharing and connecting. I must say I’m deeply grateful that I regularly wrote and published on the blog in 2022, and despite the challenges that life kept throwing at me, I might have paused a bit here and there, but the blogging continued. It was my balm, my safe space to share my thoughts.
So, when my good friend Parul nudged me to join the International Blog Delurking Week of 2023, I jumped in, right away. I’ve been doing it for three years now and it’s basically a way of re-connecting with the readers and fellow-bloggers as all set off on another blogging journey around the Sun! 🙂
So, if you are new here, this is something we bloggers put up every year, during the first week of January, inviting readers to leave a quick note with a hello, sharing a little about who they are and if one happens to be a blogger, a little more about their blogs too (in case it’s the first time).
It helps us to get to know each other a little better and forge new connections with readers.
So, are you game?
If you’ve been a regular here, you already know that this space—Mysoultalks—has been my second home for the past 8 years, and it has been an extremely fulfilling journey connecting and learning from so many talented writers and bloggers. We’ve shared ideas, joined blog hops, felt the vibes from one another, pushed ourselves beyond the comfort zones, nudged each other through writers blocks and what not.
Through blogging, we’ve also met some amazing bloggers who turned friends, and from whom I continue to learn so much about life and everything under the sun!
Some days, we do ponder on how, over the past few years, the blogging community has changed so much, from what it used to be in the earlier days, but then, truth be told, I’ve not had the heart to quit this space, which maybe the reason why I still continued to soldier on and blog at least once a week and thanks to the Universe, have somehow persisted, despite the odds that kept surfacing every now and then, the two years of the pandemic included. If anything, blogging has kept me going through the roller coaster rides of life and I’m only deeply grateful for that.
Enough about myself. I’d love to hear about YOU now. And how did you happen to stop by, here, today?
It would be lovely if you share a little about yourself, your plans for the year and what brought you here. If you’re a blogger, I promise to visit you back, if you leave the link below. Who knows, this could be the beginning of another beautiful journey for us, right?
On that note, I wish you a beautiful, happy and promising 2023! Stay safe, and stay strong and come what may, never give up on yourself.
With much love, hugs and tons of positive vibes from me to you—
