Hello everyone! Finally I’m walking back into the light after a huge hiatus. Ask me where I disappeared and I doubt I’d have a very convincing answer to give. Or maybe I have.

So, there were a few things that made me abandon this blog and vanish. One was the “scheduling” of posts I used to do whenever I traveled. I did it one or two times between Jan and April and the more I thought about it, I felt it’s something along the lines of cheating. I mean, I have enough photos that I can just schedule for the entire year and WP will do its job of uploading them all at the scheduled time. Well, that’s not exactly “photo a day” project per me. This started worrying me a bit. Or maybe a lot.

Another reason was the overwhelming response I was getting from all of you. I was getting anywhere between 80 and 100 (sometimes even more) likes on my photos. This was very encouraging and I am so thankful to each one of you, but at the same time, it started reaching a point where I was finding it difficult to find time to pay a return visit to all you fellow bloggers. Not a good thing at all and this again started bugging me.

On top of all these, after my last trip in April, I came home with a conked out laptop. So, long story short, I just decided to shut the whole thing down. Period.

I am back now and I don’t plan on disappearing again. Fingers crossed!

As for the blog, some of you must have noticed the minor changes. I have moved the blog to my own domain, which has been running for the last few years on the self-hosted version of WP. I felt it’d be much easier to move it to WP dot com and manage everything under one roof. Let’s see how it goes.

And lastly, a HUGE apology to everyone who e-mailed me. The mails came in as a pleasant surprise and it was such a nice feeling to know that I am remembered, but I know, it was really, really bad of me not to have replied. I am not even attempting to come up with lame excuses as to why. :-/

End of rant.

Happy New Year to each and every one of you! May 2019 turn out to be a great year for all you bloggers (and non-bloggers) out there. 🙂
