I was using WordPress on self hosted site prior to signing up on WordPress.com, dated 11th August 2011.
I had published my first ever post, one year and three months after I signed up (dated 26th December 2012) and it was on different blog. I had created my first blog with intentions to share updates regarding my first writing attempt at Novel. As time passed by, I lost interest and left blogging after publishing four posts on that blog. I had written draft of one chapter and had whole characterization ready of my Novel and I still have hopes that someday I will start writing that Novel again and manage to finish.
My current blog (The Other Direction) had no specific name for more than two years. Initially it was named after my name i.e. Pratik Akkawar.
I published my first post on The Other Direction nearly after one year (dated 12th August 2013) from when I had created the blog. I had not written anything for almost eight to ten months continuously.
I have never written a single post using WordPress editor. I write my posts on MS word document first and then copy-paste them into editor later.
I don’t create drafts of my posts; all my posts are my first and last attempt to write those articles at one go. Most of the time, I finish writing an article within few hours or at most a single day. I don’t continue article that I had left incomplete last day. In other words, 24 hours is limit for me to finish writing any article on my blog.
More than 90% of posts on The Other Direction are written at office by me and this post too is no exception.
Every blog post on The Other Direction has featured image associated with it.
The Other Direction has more female followers than that of male and is still growing strong in same direction.
The Other Direction is an Award Free Blog. Though I neither mentioned anywhere nor I announced it officially, I have decided not to receive any blog awards in near future.
The Other Direction was previously known to readers by the name Aimless till early months of 2016.
I am occasionally a poet, blogger and an amateur writer, trying to put my thoughts into words and sometimes words into poems. Besides that, I am a day dreamer, lazy reader and patient listener. You live only once so, breath, smile, laugh and love. Thank you for passing by. Stay blessed. Cheers.
