Today is the last but one day of our month-long blogging marathon. All the activity, buzz, chatting and frenzy will end tomorrow. There will be a void like the one after the annual school function finishes – you sudden have nothing to do and miss all the practices, masti and gup shup. I guess I will miss it, till something else fills that void. But I will definitely not miss the posting-every-day bit.
All of us will nod, when I say, we would like to take a break from blogging for a bit.
Here is my version of what this marathon was, in a limerick -
An idea struck a lady called Monika who was always on the run
She discussed it with some friends who wanted to have fun
They pledged to write a post a day
And keep their writer’s blocks at bay
They all thought they couldn’t do it but ended up writing a tonne
The marathon had its highs and lows
Some got bogged down by its blows
Others continued to churn out post after post
About kids, pets, work, life, love and even coffee and toast
They all made new friends and no foes
Secret Santa was a mystery and thriller
It was like playing “Who is the killer?”
Outings were planned, meet ups scheduled
Wherever needed, people even pooled
To help, to heal and to write that occasional filler
Theme posts made us use our head
Didn’t matter if we sat on the desk or on the bed
This blogathon was like a trip to the zoo
All you wonderful people, it was a pleasure knowing you
Here is to Marathon Blogging and to an awesome year ahead!
Now I shall go and enjoy the next 7 days of my holiday Happy Sunday!!
