Farewell, another year!

ReflectionsThis week, as I complete four years of blogging and sharing thoughts, pictures and moments with thousands across the world, I look back to April 2013 when I wrote online for the first time.
In the beginning, I thought this blog would be a platform to express an opinion, show off some pictures and, perhaps, share a recipe or two. I also then pledged I would write, or post something, each day and regularly visit hundreds of other blogs, like and comment on their posts and build up a “network”.
ManamaFour years down the line, that has happened to an extent but what has also happened is that other things have overtaken the will to write, take pictures and generally maintain a presence online.
The daily writing and posting gradually became three to four times a week, then a couple of times and then, weekly. Over the last few months, however, it’s become “as and when there is something”.
BoatsBut in spite of all the “hiccups”, I have managed to maintain a presence, like and comment on some of my followers’ and likers’ blogs and “show off” some of the pictures I take.
I must confess, however, singhcircle.com has become more of a picture portal and not an opinion or a thoughts platform – and this is something I am not really comfortable with. I would once again want it to become what it was in its first few months and what I set it up for initially. This I will certainly strive for.
SunsetI thank all  followers, particularly those who read, like and comment on each and every thing that appears on these pages. There are a few who have been doing so from Day One and they themselves have awesome blogs with thousands of followers and hundreds of comments. It is gratifying to get some very nice and encouraging comments from them.
I will continue to post here as much as possible, perhaps more than what I have been doing of late, but not as much as I did in the earlier days and look forward to the support, the encouragement, the likes and the comments. I promise, also, to be on the Reader far more frequently, going through what those I follow are up to.
Meanwhile, I share four pictures I took of the Bahrain coast in the last few days. Photographs taken on the seashore often always end up with the Manama skyline in the background. These pictures, taken at different times of the evening, and night, have their own stories to tell.

    I have enjoyed your photography and written thoughts from the time we discovered each other. For two people who come from different worlds, thousands of miles apart, we find kindred thoughts and ways of life. It wouldn’t matter what pace you publish posts at, nor the content… I love to see your posts pop up in my reader. I may not always have time to comment, and I wish many times there was a LOVE button to click on because you often say something that really hits home, or you publish a photo that says it all. Do not stress about how often you post… those of us who adore your work will wait forEVER if we must!! It’s worth waiting for!! 🙂
