WordPress:Week Fifty One of My Fifty Two Weeks Journey with the Letter ” W”

It’s wrapup time. One more week to go and I am done with my yearlong journey.  But before I wrap up, I must say my thanks to WordPress.

WordPress opened a window through which I peered into a world that was hidden from me before.  I had no idea about blogging, did not know anything about posting a blog.  Wordpress gave me a platform to express my feelings. It allowed me to explore a medium that was dormant in my heart for a long, long time.  I made many friends across the seven seas, friends unseen or unheard but very near and dear to me.  Their words of encouragement have kept me going on my year long journey with the letter W.  Looking back over fifty one weeks, I think I must have been a fool to take my first step in this journey.  But there was WordPress at every step of the journey providing me with the much needed confidence to carry on.  Varieties of stories, poems, articles, the plethora of knowledge, each contributed something to this journey.

So here I am today, on the penultimate week of my journey, looking for a word that starts with W for my poem.  Where can I find a better word than WordPress for week fifty one of my fifty two weeks journey with the letter W to start my poem.  Hope my dear readers will agree with me.

Blogging 101 – Day 9: Get Inspired by Neighbors

Happy mix-up opens up a new avenue to explore.

The instructions were clear. Write a post based on a comment left on a blogsite as instructed in assignment 8. As fate would have it, mine happened a little differently. I was having a conversation ( what do we call when a conversation that starts with a comment on a blog post – blogversation)with kimberlyqae when suddenly a comment popped up from lovingdolphins . I am still trying to figure out how it happened but it was a happy mix-up. Her comments were very encouraging and she gently nudged both me and kimberlyqae to explore publishing. She shared her experience of publishing with us. This is a very nebulous idea till now, a new avenue to explore. Here I am just trying to navigate the starting of blogosphere and being asked to think about publishing. Talk about being overwhelmed! This is what I am liking about blogging, encouragement and a nurturing atmosphere without being intrusive.
