Happy Birthday Blog!
Yay! An idea which took shape in random discussions with a friend one day is celebrating its first anniversary today. I had been traveling with family for a long time and even solo for sometime before I contemplated the idea of starting this blog. But ever since its inception, it has been awesome: the feeling of sharing my experiences with all of you and in being recognized. So today, on its first birthday, I share the happiness(es) too with all of you.
On the mark of 1 year, I gifted the blog with its own personal domain: wanderingjatin.com!
Also, you can now see lot more activity on Facebook, Flickr, Quora, Tripoto, G+, and Twitter. Do join me on these platforms for an increased connectivity!
It makes me very proud and happy to reflect over the path WanderingJatin took over the last year. From a blog on WordPress, to slowly raising more crowd with G+, Indiblogger, then FB page and now, personal domain and stuff. From being a medium to document my travels, it became a medium for me to connect and learn from the bloggers worldwide and full time travelers and travel writers. I found myself spending time on Google maps more than ever before. The repetitive inquiries about the adventurous tales from my travels during my periods of absence from the blog always humbled me and made me know that it was no longer about just me. The appreciation and inquisitive mails from fans about the places I have been to always left with overwhelming satisfaction and great positivity!
A year into travel blogging also helped me a great deal as a traveler: it has been an adventurous 1 year for me on the highways and the blog. Pondering over my travels for writing made me realize the kind of places and activities which interested me: Impromptu road (bike) trips to offbeat places and trekking and camping! I got n number of opportunities to organize treks and camping tours for my family and friends too (apart from my solo rides and camping), where n was large enough! And that led to the theme centric to this blog: offbeat travel and crazy experiences.
I promise to feed this space with an even bigger number m (m>n) of adventurous tales and unbiased opinions from my road trips, treks and travels! And I hope that once the weather calms itself down in Hyderabad, I shall announce some treks and tours open for all to join me along.
To all my readers… A big Thank You!
To the craziness and awesomeness which awaits… Cheers!
