Family, friends, work, colleagues, twitter helped me cope and come back to routine life. However, I needed to blog in order to completely refresh. The urge suddenly went up after reading a fellow blogger's blog - Neha's Blog not once, but four times (different posts) in succession as I have subscribed to it s posts and the latest post would get delivered to my inbox every morning which in turn would serve as my reading-byte while going to office. It struck me, how could one blog continuously? It requires an active mind and that idea hit me. I asked - what am I doing? Why am I not writing anything? Now, the thing is I had a lot of ideas and even noted down interesting stuff on which I should write but work, travel, twitter - I was so engrossed in everything that I couldn't focus on what I loved the most - blogging. I decided, that this time I will blog. All of a sudden, I felt very energetic last night and first decided to give maktion blog a design revamp.
Once the mind was made, it was just a matter of execution. I like simplicity a lot. When I started blogging, I was like any other guy and my mind was thinking more about Google Ads on my blog rather than the content. This time - I put a full stop to ads. Yes, now you will see no more ads on maktion. I think I have learnt and realized that the real joy of blogging is when someone reads your blog, responds by leaving a comment, strikes a conversation and not how much did you earn in AdWords (not that I have earned much, it was peanuts). If my blog can provide value to someone, encourage a student, act as a resource for some professional - the objective is achieved.
So coming back to the sudden energy in me; I chose a simple theme, played around with the new blogger template and came up with minimum widget based blog. The creative element in this is the header where you see me sitting and telling what I blog on (I love wasting time on doing creative things). Once everything was set and saved, I decided to write. Now, I had 3 different things from my field - Digital Marketing on which I badly wanted to write but then I thought why not write about how I decided to write once again? I'm sure some of you also must have gone through (or will go through) such a phase where it becomes difficult to move your mind. In the age of twitter, where everything is conveyed in 140 characters, it's quiet a challenge to sit, think, decide on a flow and blog. Hence, this blog post is just to 'refresh'. You can call it jogging before the marathon, net-practice before the match or whatever - it's my way of refreshing for another season of good blogging. I spent time thinking on what maktion was (and is) all about and came up with a selection of keywords which you can see in the new header above.
Summary - I blog on:
I personally want to thank you for continuing to read maktion and I will make sure this time I infuse rich-creativity based content on this blog in the coming days. If you liked this revamped design, then do leave a comment below.
