The First 500 and Invitation to Guest Post

So, last night WP sent me this message





πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€


Yes, that’s how I feel, in Capitals no less.

I feel ecstatic, loved, inspired and motivated that this small venture has grown into a place for 500 kindred souls to come together and rendezvous on topics ranging from books to, ahem, Prez Trump’s Donald Duck lips!

Thank you to each and every one of you. I must admit I had been looking forward to this moment and now that it’s here I feel overwhelmed with your love and support.




Do you know what I do first thing in the morning?

I check my phone for WP notifications and never has there come a time when I haven’t received at least one like or one comment from you guys.

You guys rock!!!



My growth from zilch to 500 is owing to the love and direction I have received from all of you, dear friends. In you all, I’ve found a lifetime worth of friends, critics, inspiration and ideals. And while this little blog is still growing, I like to boast that I still remember how I met each and every one of you here on WP.

In honor of you all, starting from Thursday, the 16th of February, I shall be posting one guest post each day. That is, one guest post from this Thursday to the next Thursday, 23rd February.

So please guys, send in your posts to this email address –Β 

Now there’s no bar on the number of words, or the kind of topics, but let’s just try to keep it clean, if you know what I mean πŸ˜‰ So it could be anything, stories, poetry, funny, motivational, religious or spiritual pieces, or even political.

It’ll be a great opportunity to get to know other bloggers, interact, mingle and discuss on a variety of topics. So get writing and send it across to yours truly πŸ™‚

Once again, thank you all so much for helping me achieve this target, for your constant support and comments. I will be awaiting your emails eagerly.


Love and Best Wishes,

Pradita Kapahi

  1. Congratulations ma’am! Well-done. As much as a number, it is also a reflection of the fact that people engage with what you write, that they love your blog’s content. More power to you.
    And oh, the guest post idea is amazing. Brilliant, really. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ŒπŸ‘Œ

    • Thanks a lot… and ‘Ma’am’???? Don’t you think we’re above those formalities? Anyhow, thank you for your support and inputs. The guest posts I’d been wanting to do for sometime now and last night when I received this notification I couldn’t find a better reason to just start with. I hope you contribute πŸ™‚

      • You are welcome.
        That ma’am is respect and ribbing, combined. 😝
        Yes, this is a perfect occasion to invite other voices on your blog. A win-win in every way.
        I won’t lie and say I hadn’t thought about contributing but, what would you do if you received more than 7 entries?

          • Well, that sounds fair enough. How about making it a regular feature on your blog? say one or two guest posts per week after this is done? You could have various people featuring in it. And then you could make that serve an altruistic purpose by, say, making it for those bloggers who have under 100 or 50 followers. The exposure they will get on your blog will be far greater and would, in all probabilities, help them grow, besides adding eyeballs to your blog. you see, win-win!
            I didn’t have anything particular in mind, to be honest. Just an idea that yes, this is a good opportunity to write something.

  7. Bonjour ou Bonsoir PRADITA
    Si votre cΕ“ur est dΓ©semparΓ©, une bonne nouvelle peut le ranimer
    Si vos yeux ont envie de pleurer, laissez-les allez sans retenue
    Les Γ©motions ne se commandent pas
    Si vous riez et que la peine vous meurtrit
    Ne changez pas d’horizon
    La musique peut vous aider Γ  garder la bonne humeur
    Si la passion n’est plus comme avant
    Lui l’amour est en vous et vos sentiments s’enflamment et feront plaisir aux autres

    Si vous n’Γͺtes pas poΓ¨te, ni Γ©crivain , gardez une Γ’me d’artiste
    Et faites valoir vos ressentis avec une pointe de fantaisie
    Si l’on ne vous dΓ©couvre que des dΓ©fauts c’est que vous n’avez pas changΓ©


    Et que l’autre personne qui vous critique a surement autant de dΓ©fauts que vous
    Si moi vous trouvez que je ne suis plus comme avant
    Je peux vous dire que je n’ai pas changΓ©, je suis restΓ©e conforme Γ  mes idΓ©es

    Mais je pense que le temps est comptΓ© et que les annΓ©es s’effilent doucement

    Alors mieux vos encore en profiter

    Bisous bonne journΓ©e ou bonne soirΓ©e

    Votre ami BERNARD

    • Once again, you write to me with a very profound meaning in your poetry. This one has made me understand that I am better than what I think I am and that I should always enjoy my life the way I want it to.

      May I please reblog this on my blog? Of course, I’ll blog the translated version because most of my readers don’t know any language beyond English and Hindi. If I have your permission, I’d love to reblog it.

      Thanks and have a fabulous day! Love and regards πŸ™‚
