  1. How come you blog here sometimes and sometimes there? Again a cool diary. 21 million in your town??? Wow. And nobody in the library. Your jobs sound meditative though. Are you a kid or an adult (being a student, it sounds like)? I was wondering. No need to answer if that’s asking for TMI. 😊

    1. 1. I was in Blogging University course Blogging 101 in August 2015. I was the most active student. I proposed idea of such a forum where bloggers might interact with each other. Many participants supported my idea. Some of us collaborated to create this forum. Many kept contributing. I was one of the three admins until November 2015. Then I stepped down based on the negative feedback by other two admins though I considered that to be unfair. There were some things going behind the scenes in those days. I rejoined this forum on 16th of October 2020. I am an admin again. 2. I use my personal blog as well as this one. I am blogging here more frequently to avoid repitition of similar things on two blogs. Back in 2015 I used to devote more time to this blog than to my personal blog. I should keep some archives for my personal blog but I have already deleted 3 or 4 blogs so far. I can always build from scratch. And now i am popular among kabbalists and poets ( 😂👍😃 ). 3. Yes, that should be 210000. A typo. Thanks for that. Still, nobody in library during my three years tenure. Librarian who is a heptagenerian also admits dearth of readers. 4. My jobs aren’t meditative. I make them so because of my personal preference. 5. Am an adult. Glad i give you an impression of a kid. I love to play word games. Even other games if I can afford. 6. What’s TMI? 7. I truly thank you for being frank and asking me questions. You might not remember: I used to make verses by using your name: perhaps you reported me to WordPress once or twice and went private. Maybe you deleted some of my comments like Pooja G and other poets. You can ask anything you want. ANYTHING!! 🙂🙂👍👍

      1. Well, you obviously have a brilliant mind, hope you mostly use it for good, not evil, hehe. Yes the callous-seeming sarcasm of your comments shattered me. I’m weak apparently. However all of your comments, though at one point removed, since quite some time ago (months maybe) have been showing. If I remember right you also acted like a blogging novice? and at first I tried to answer your questions sincerely? But it took a lot of energy for me. Away from my family. And I was trying to help, genuinely. Yet I felt you were mocking me, maybe. Guess I was right. Thanks for shedding the dancing light. TMI just means too much information…

        And by the way I wasn’t trying to be sarcastic about the typo… I thought maybe you lived in one of the biggest cities though. 😊

        1. 1. I live in one of the smallest. 2. To be honest: i am often deluded about identities. I mistook you for Nandita Manan Yata: another prolific blogger poet i came across in 2017. She was multilingual so i thought she was hiding in your guise 😃😃😂😂 3. And i am learning to be civilized around ladies as well as gentlemen. I really appreciate people who write frequently as i myself prefer doing that over writing periodically. 4. You have great intuition and your words often synchronised with my life events. Being an empath you are bound to feel weak however you are very strong. 5. I was really feeling like a novice then. My identity has been destroyed and rebuilt many times over after visiting voids of various intensities. Thanks for everything and being so kind in past, present and future. 🙂

          1. Omg…. this is so so wonderful… actually have tears in my eyes. When you were commenting like that I was going through something emotionally awful… also due to online stuff… and I just couldn’t take any razzing at all. All of my poems were expressions of my true feelings at the time… and poetry had become my wine. (the “wine” of the sufis… love, I think they say it is… :)) I am really grateful to you for telling me this. Thank you 💛💛

              1. 😭🙏💛 That is absolutely amazing to hear… honestly I had no idea. Thanks a huge bunch. It means a lot to me. I was just about to link here as thanks for sincere communication (I was about to hit publish on a long post about the original impetus of my blog) but then I saw your comments… which I didn’t expect. Would you mind? I hope you can reply soon… again, either way, thank you.

                  1. Aw thank you… so so much. Yes, I did and do have connection with Nadine at Bloomwords. 🙂 “She” seems to have gone a little batshit crazy over there from not being able to manage comments and mocking/mirroring posts… 😭🤷🏼‍♀️ …and she didn’t feel like trying to write her way out of her own muddy mess anymore. 🌷So far anyway. :)) Thanks for your kindness here. Makes my online day. 💛

                    1. Are you really confused…? Based on your obvious intelligence… I guess that’s unlikely… if I felt ready to answer that I would have answered that already… 😅 and actually have in various ways and at various times, on my blogs. What is your name exactly? No need to answer if that’s asking for TMI…

                    2. And I am so sorry for not seeing this till after posting… I have a few offline things happening as well… it’s just the kind of daily life we all have to manage… I really hope it’s okay and if not I’ll remove the link right away.

                    3. Oh my god! (Title of post) no… that really doesn’t sound like me (I’m just being honest as I haven’t had time to check to make absolute sure but seriously… no. Sounds interesting though 😂 as well as, devastatingly… entirely possible. 😔
                      People are more sensitive than we (all) think. Definitely doubt I could have written that title (but I will check)… and yes I am Nadine… and sobrietytree.

                    4. It might have contained a line “this self proclaimed pundit is killing people with his posts…” I wrote a post as an answer to that sense…i don’t know what you had in mind when you wrote that…it ignited my inspiration to make me write my post at that time. 😃

                    5. Ah ok so you think it was me??? Omg… do you know the title of the post? And are you sure? I wrote so many things… too many, really… since it felt like so much was attacking me… and for what, I didn’t even know, since people weren’t telling me directly.
                      If that was one line in a post, I don’t even know where to begin to look honestly. 😬😅😳😥🤦🏼‍♀️
