I have been idle for months. Stopped writing, which I love. The occasional hangout with friends and family get-together remain.
After being unsuccessful at landing another exciting job ever since I left my first job I have been left clueless about my next step. When months passed and then a year I started losing hope. When I got my first job as a copy writer almost after college at a successful startup I was excited. Life was smooth and I met new people. I was doing so many great things. All of it came to a pause when I suddenly had to leave this job for an important personal reason and took a break.
After more than a year I am still unemployed. And I became bored and restless. I picked up a few new hobbies. All of them however left me like my unrequited love. Ah! So, I started reading. You can spend maybe months reading but not years.
Meanwhile, I had these thoughts inside my mind. I needed to share them with people. However, I knew the set of friends I had too well to engage them in conversations about my thoughts. This burdened me. Have you had this awfully heavy weight pressing down on you almost smothering the life out of you when you keep thoughts and words inside yourself?
Then a few days ago I decided I have to start a blog. This is something I always wanted to do. However, I was too lazy and didn’t bother about looking where to start. So, I researched a bit and learned a few basics. Then I thought NO! I mean I couldn’t just start it after a few hours of research. At this point I got thinking a little seriously. I said to myself, “Listen. If you do not do it now you will delay it like how you did with all the other important things before.” Yes!
Now, I was looking for the types of sites and plans. I looked at the cost of putting together a blogging website with my own domain name, hosting site and all that. I decided to stick with this free option. Remember, I am still jobless.
Next, it was the name for this site. I got to thinking. What’s me? What identifies me? And all those soul searching and self-research was going on in my mind. Then I stumbled upon the answer of my life. Shorty! Yes, because I am short. But it wasn’t enough for a blog site’s name. It had to be cool. So, I decided to go with shortslayer.wordpress.com . And it was available too. I may be short but I can slay. Hell yeah!
