I’ve been here before. Many times.
I love to write. At least I thought I did. Years ago, after I couldn’t afford to pursue my dreams of being a broadcast journalist at University of Oregon, I sought other ways to do journalism. I, along with a friend, began dippu.com. It was to be an aggregate of news items and opinion related to Indian-Christians around the world. The response was surprisingly significant. Soon, a newsletter for Indian-American Pentecostals named the Beacon came calling.
People were seeing my name in print and suddenly I thought I liked to write. As with many things, I honestly didn’t have much dedication to simply writing. I would only write when I felt sincerely passionate about a topic; this happened occasionally.
Fast forward a few years, I’m sitting at an empty desk of The Week, the second largest English-language magazine in India. I finished up a total of five articles and got published. My name appeared in print again.
In the course of a few years, I had gone from someone seeking to be a TV journalist to being a writer. I saw the power in writing and influencing people. However, over the last few years, a lot has happened. I’ve gone through a bit of a cleansing process. I’m now rethinking everything I used to write.
I went back and deleted all my old blogs and posts. I didn’t even bother saving them. I just wanted to start over.
So here’s the plan:
I’m going to write one post per day. I don’t care if it’s the worst writing I’ve ever done. I don’t really care. I just want to do one post each day. This counts as one post.
If you’re reading this, I have no idea why you’re here. I could over-spiritualize things and say that God brought you here. Or did He? I’m not going to get into it. Come back, check out the page, send me some suggestions/questions, I’d love to hear from you.
