Good bye and welcome to my new home

After writing for nine months on this blog, I am now emboldened enough to move to a self-hosted website, Next Step to Nirvana. In these nine months, I wrote 128 posts and I am extraordinarily grateful to the 408 readers who have become followers. I have written all kinds of stuff so far. Essays on current topics, pictures of my garden beauties, and recipes. This blog became my solace and safe space for experimentation. I even learned to write poetry and encouraged every step by loyal readers who have become my friends. Recently, I was telling my love that research has found that oxytocin (bonding hormone) levels go up even during social media contact. This blog is one of my primary oxytocin sources.

Here are some statistics so far.

I am grateful beyond belief for the support, friendship, and fellowship that my fellow bloggers have given me. I have been able to transfer all my materials here including comments to the new home. I hope that my readers and followers will continue to visit my new home as well. Please do. After two weeks, I will have to take this site down so I can focus on building the other one.

Here is a link to my top post on videogaming on the new website.

  3. Is there a way to follow the blog so that posts will appear in the WordPress reader? I visited the site but couldn’t find a follow via WP option. Not sure whether this is still available on self-hosted sites… Or whether I’m just not very good at finding it πŸ˜€

    Hi I am unable to reach the link you shared for Next Step to Nirvana ?

    I will be some day buying that space though πŸ™‚
    That has been my status for so long on the social converse platform here in India.

    Gnothi Seauton -> -> -> Nirvana 0:)

    I would be glad to reach your stories on the new site. Thanks.
