A goodbye…

Well, I have been thinking of shutting down this blog for quite some time now, and I have decided to take the plunge today, finally! There have been several reasons behind my thinking so.

I have loved my journey here, as I’ve talked about many times. I value the things I’ve learnt through this blog and the friendships I’ve forged through it. I have put up each post on my blog with complete honesty and from my heart, and greatly appreciate each one of your comments. I feel I owe you all an explanation before I shut shop here. I don’t know how to say this without sounding snobbish, but of late, I’ve been feeling my virtual and personal worlds getting too close for comfort. It’s all too easy for my personal, virtual and professional worlds to get mixed up, and I don’t think I’d be too comfortable with that. I hope you’ll understand.

I can’t dream of stopping blogging altogether. I love the feeling of discussing things with like-minded people, and I would like to continue doing that. I would love to continue writing, blogging rather, and talk about the various issues close to my heart. So, I’ve thought of writing under a pseudonym. Somewhere, on the world wide web, I’ll create another space and try to make it home.

Of course, I’ll miss this space and all you lovely guys who took time out to read and comment on my ramblings. Maybe our paths will cross again, maybe not. I’ve decided to let the posts on this blog stay; I don’t have the heart to delete them or close up the blog entirely. I just won’t be blogging here any more.

Goodbye all of you! Thanks a ton for all your suggestions, love, and for all the smiles. Have a great life! :)

With loads of love,

Priya

    Hey Priya,

    This is indeed a surprise. But I can completely understand – (been in a similar situation)
    And I am loving the freedom of writing/not writing/not meeting expectations under another name. I hope you will continue to write and enjoy the presence in www
    Good luck girl!

  14. Wishing you good luck Priya and happy writings somewhere else – soon! Keep us posted :)

    Just to quote from a renowned urdu lyricist, Sahir Ludhiyanvi

    ….Tarruf rog ho jayen to unko chhodna behtar,
    Talluk bojh ban jayne to unko todna achchha,
    Woh afsana jisey anjaam taq lana na ho mumkin,
    Usey ik khoobsurat mod de kar chhodna achha….

    Though I will miss finding you here but I respect your decision and learn to live without your writings as I have learnt to live without many such good things which came to their end in past.

  16. Came here after a long time – felt like I missed the bus. :-(

    I hope I’ll trace your pseudonym somewhere (just retain the tag ‘reading ramana’, and I’ll know) ;-)

    All the best, girl.

  17. Aww…sad to hear you go. Good luck with the new blog!

  18. No…………..
    Just got online finally and see this.
    Do let us know when and where you decide to migrate to and we will follow (if permitted of course, else will just hack in anyway :P )

  19. that came so shocking to me Priya!! Especially that I logged into my blogger after real long time
    Keep in touch dear! I will miss this space a lot!
