Hey wonderful folks of the blog-o-sphere. How are all of you holding up? Hope the week has been kind to you.
This, essentially, is a very late but much needed introduction to Living Unplanned. It made no sense to write this before when there were zero readers but the present seems like a more opportune moment to do so. Thanks to everyone who’s subscribed and thanks to everyone who’s accompanied me on the journey so far. I write this for you (and with a hope to lure in more wonderful readers).
So far, I’ve been writing about the first leg of my journey. Two weeks of solo loitering in Spiti Valley. I’ve taken up a format not too many other travel blogs seem to follow (I’m sure for good reason). I’m not talking Top 10s, I’m not talking must see destination and neither am I really spewing out travel magazine worthy features that takes one through a destination with an unexplored hook – like this one here.
No, I’m memoiring. I’m narrating what I see on the road as transparently as possible and I don’t deny that I see the world through my biased vision conditioned as it may have been. Now that greatly leaves me on the mercy of you benevolent souls. I must continue thinking that there are some out there who enjoy reading what I write.
However, I have come to feel that it’s not easy to keep all of you hooked to chronological unfolding of events – 2 posts a week. Isn’t it? And I don’t know if writing at a stretch about one single destination really works either. I really am groping in the dark here, as you can see.
Therefore, I turn to you. All of you. As many of you as I possibly can through this innocuous blog post. Tell me people, what should I change about my narration and the way in which I present it to you? What worked for you so far and what didn’t? Anything you’d want me to add? Anything I can do without?
As some of you may have noticed, I have a custom domain name now – neetolemitra.com. It’s bought. Official. And each new day furthers the ambition. Hopefully there’s will be a fancy layout to this blog sometime soon and maybe more kinds of content and collaborations. All in good time.
But first, tell me, tell me. How can I entertain you better with my travel and with my words.
