The Beginnings Of A Blog

The day you started blogging. What were you thinking?

Back in 2002 I moved to Calicut (temporarily) as I was under training and then planning to work for a BPO that was just starting up in that city. I had taken up a room in a lodge and later would move to another lodge which was closer to the office premises. Since I was starting work there in a new place, I thought a blog was a good way to keep track of my new life in Calicut.

The blog that I created was on Blogspot.com and I just checked and it was in October of that year (I moved towards the end of July of that year) that I created the blog after renting a computer in an internet cafe for an hour or so. My entries in that blog were usually here and there – I usually did an entry once a week and if I was lucky twice a week. I wrote about what I did, what movies I watched on cable, what cds I bought and/or listened to that week and about my life with little tidbits here and there.

I mostly thought that it would be a good way for my family, friends and relatives to keep in touch with me and find out what I have been upto in Calicut and they could read all about it. I ended up only staying in Calicut for a few months, less than a year as we had to come back home in between for 2 months while the company had construction going on (and we were told we would be payed for those 2 months but we never did) and I moved back to Cochin. Which was a good thing. I should never have gone but I did make a few good friends there.
