A couple of weekends back, I was invited to visit Eka – an art and homewares store in Ulsoor.
This is a store I’ve always wanted to visit as the window displays are absolutely beautiful, but never got around to it because whenever I see it, I’m always driving somewhere or the other with kids, and this is not a store to visit if you have butter-fingered kids around 😀 .
Anyway, I was thrilled to visit the store alone, and see some of the lovely stuff they have there.
Of late, I have been feeling like my blogging has got a bit mechanical – a bunch of book reviews (usually done way after I have read the book), the occasional restaurant review, but I think the earlier personal note has started to go missing. Partly, because somewhere along the way I started doing book reviews for publishers and food posts for restaurants (meaning I have a deadline), and basically the blog has started feeling more business-like, than like a personal blog.
I can’t say I can go completely back to the old tone and content as i no longer feel like I am writing solely for friends and family. But I also don’t want the blog to exist merely as a database of places to go, and books to read. I don’t know how the new style will evolve but I plan to have a little more about my daily life and routines, things I am thinking, what the kids are doing/saying to me, and so on.
Let’s see how things evolve. Old readers, I hope you will like my going back to more of what made you read my blog read in the first place, newer readers, I hope you find reading about the person behind the blog as interesting as the blog itself.
I am a tech writer from Bangalore who uses this blog to indulge in other forms of writing.
I love to read and then write about what I read. However, I am not all about reading, and this blog reflects that.
