Thoughts On The Expats Blog Contest & Thanks
The holiday season has officially started and a half or more than a half of the expat community in Mumbai seem to have left to go on vacation.
If you have visited my blog last week, you might have seen a badge like this below that I displayed on the right column about the Expats Blog contest. (I have already removed it as the voting time was closed.)
I would like to thank you, Melany, Betty, Mani and Veronika, for your time to leave me a comment on Expats Blog website during the contest!
I participated because I thought it would be fun.
Then once all the entries had come published, and I realized that basically it was a popularity contest, I wished I did not enter. I don’t need to be in a popularity contest other than those created by the social media that we are already in.
However, to find out that my friend in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, Melany of wanderlust and wonder found me in the contest which she also participated (here is her entry) and left me a comment shed a light into my dark feelings.
Then I received Veronika’s comment which blew away all my blues about blogging that I have felt lately.
Her words reminded me of the reason why I started blogging in the first place.
I have been blogging for over 3 years. It’s hard not to feel obsessed about the stats. However, I need to keep reminding myself that what’s more important is the content.
Thank you, Veronika, for your enthusiastic support. I am grateful for it!!!
Thank you also to those who come visit me on a regular basis and spend time to leave me your comments. Your comments always warm my heart.
They become my motivation to blog better and more.
