Hello Everybody! How Has Been the Journey So Far?
It’s been a while since I wrote anything here on my personal blog. I realise that I wrote my last blog post here on November 16, 2018.
I have not been very active here and my WA rank is a testimony to my inactivity.
Well, it was not a conscious decision on my part but I had been very busy on my site.
I have observed an interesting thing here and I don’t know if others noticed it too.
The people who were very active here, say about a year back (or those who joined WA around the same time I did) are less active here. Unlike in those days, I don’t see posts from these members regularly now.
There are still posts appearing from these older members but they are sporadic at best. And I’m almost sure, these people, like me, are also very busy building up their own businesses. I think this trend is observable in all time periods.
People join WA and with all the excitement of creating websites and the training here, they are also more visible in the community – asking questions, writing blog posts, following other members and commenting on other people’s posts - when they are relatively new. But after a while, these people shift their activity more on their own websites rather than being active here. I hope I don’t sound like generalising it too much.
I see many new members who are very active here now. When I say ‘new members’, I mean those who joined in the last 8-10 months or so. It’s a good sign. The new members bring in a wealth of new perspectives (and knowledge) and make the community more vibrant. I can see that there are many awesome members from the new group, and the older members (I joined WA 18 months ago) like me are also learning from them.
Today, I read an interesting post from one of WA’s awesomest members, RoopeKiuttu about the importance of hard work and of not quitting. You can read his post here
I simply loved what he said there.
I have nothing very specific to say today. I just wanted to drop in to say a big “Hi!” to everybody and to let people know I’m still very much alive :) and, loving every bit of being a part of this amazing community.
