Yet Again

Let me start this blog by saying that this is not my first blog. This is the third time I have started a blog. And no, I am not the type who make a blog and never update it. I blogged quite regularly and had a fairly okay following. I guess, there in lies the problem.

The first time I stopped blogging was due to my breakup. I simply didn't want my ex to read any of my updates - good or bad. I just wanted to cut off that part of my life forever. I didn't want to think the way he will think when he reads this post or that post. It made blogging very tedious. That blog lasted for about a year and a half before I stopped.

I started again a year later and blogged fairly regularly for about five years. Made quite a few friends through blogging and I do feel guilty leaving it behind now with people wondering what happened. Well, the thing that happened was a realization. The realization being that I am gay. There I said it for the first time in the blogging world, on the internet, in a public place that I am gay. I couldn't do so with my previous blog since I didn't use a pseudonym for that blog and a lot of my acquaintances and friends were among the readers (I didn't invite most of them. It was one of those 'word of mouth' thingy). Anyway, result being I can't be honest there Again its tiresome to blog and not be myself while writing. So here I am after about more than five years in blogging world, starting a brand new blog.

I think this post will eventually end up in the 'About' section in some form but for now it will remain my first post. And no, this is not another angry gay blog about social issues, stigma attached to being gay, especially in an Indian community. Its a personal blog. Its about me. And yes I happen to be gay so few of the issues will surface here and there but that is not going to be the identity of this blog. Its simply a venting space for me.

I guess that's enough for the first post. Will update again soon...

Nice to see you have started a new blog. {I have a hunch I know who you are but will keep the anonymity}. It must have been a confusing time for you but glad you are comfortable with your sexuality now. Looking forward to your blogging journey...

Thanks PB and welcome to the new blog! Life has been a bit tough but things are settling down now. Hopefully things will become better as life progresses.
