I HAVEN’T BEEN BLOGGING—AND THIS IS WHY

Hi friends...

Many of you asked me via social media and through comments on previous posts that why I am not posting anything lately. It was so overwhelming to read all those comments and as a blogger this is my duty to keep my readers informed.

The last blog I wrote was in month of April and that too (if I am not wrong) in the first half of the month. So yes it's been a long time, since I have written anything.

Here is the reason, why I haven't been blogging since April

Most of you know that I don’t talk a lot about my job/work on my blog, but for this, I’m making an exception.

In April, I was between jobs. I was going for interviews and got offer letters from 3 companies too. After taking lots of stress about which company to join, I finally made up my mind by end of the month (April).

I have to windup work in my previous company and meanwhile also pack my stuff as I was moving to a new city. It was hard for me to left the old firm as it was very close to my heart.

Well, the shifting went smoothly but the whole process took a solid period of 15-20 days. I was planning to do a post during packing and the scribbles are still in my draft. I was not able to complete it due to tight schedule. 

I joined the next company in May (mid) and again I was super busy during the first 15 days of the work as I was learning the tools and techniques, understanding how this firm works etc and adapting in the new environment.

(Note: I have to travel 3 hours to and fro everyday, except for Sundays to reach office and office timings are 11 to 6, so basically I spend more or less 10 hours for office.)

June also went by quickly because I went for a short trips with family, working on some magazine articles which got published wonderfully. These articles were not part of my job, so I took etc efforts to gather the data, writing and editing the stories, refining the material, collecting relevant pictures etc.

But today I thought to do a reappear post :) and from July, which is my blog anniversary month too (click here to read last year's post); I would try to maintain the pace of 1-2 blog per week. (lets see if we can stretch it up to 3-4 posts a week.)

So see you all tomorrow, with a fresh post! Thank you for your patience and thank you all for the constant reminders that I should post.. I must post :)
