Day 2

*The 30 Day Blog Challenge*

I named my blog "Ripples of my thoughts" because.. my blog. Haha. :D

Well, I like the concept of ripples. You just slightly touch the water and it sends out beautiful and long lasting ripples till the end.
I loved to fantasize this for my thoughts as well.
Watching the ripples happen or making them happen gives a strange and subtle joy -maybe I could term it contentedness- just like you get after watching a beautiful sunset or a pretty sunflower field.
My blog has always been the same for me. Hence the name. :)

Ripples captured on a drizzly evening at the terrace.

The thing that got me blogging is my passion for words.
I always wanted to write whatever thoughts I had running on my mind.
Facebook status updates were one way to express but that time it limited the update to 420 characters, which was very less for me. Especially when I had so much to tell every single time... 
Every time I wrote a status update, Facebook asked me to cut down on the characters. That was such a hard time! 
Somewhere, squeezing the update to 420 characters meant deleting some feelings too!

And so I started with my journey of blogging.
Every time I had something amazing or unusual happening in my life, I made a silent note in my mind to preserve it through my words.
Sometimes, I couldn't write it. The other times(/memories/thoughts) have been penned down in the form of various posts on this blog. :)
I wrote all this in my first post Words too. But, writing it all again has kind of motivated me to write more. Perhaps, it’s true that the more you stay in touch with the purpose of a goal, the more you work towards it.

And surely, for me, Boyzone gets it the best-

"It's only words, and words are all I have to take your heart away..."
