Into the Light

Into the light!

2011 came without much warning. I breezed through 2010. A lot of travel and work kept me busy and off the blog! The “project” I much wanted to launch didn’t see light of day (at least formally). But then, that’s life, I discovered. Most things you have on your “to do” list don’t get done and you’re staring at a nearly full list at the beginning of a fresh year. But I am quite excited now. Filled with some apprehension. But excited, never the less. And why, you might ask? For starters, after years of thinking about it, I’ve decided to fly solo. While I learnt a lot from corporate life, I think it’s time to try a few things on my own. See where the road “less taken” leads me… I’ve discovered that while I really enjoyed my job, I was also not really concentrating on the different ideas I had in my head. So I’ve termed 2011 as my “Into the Light” year! I am going to explore dimensions and avenues and see …

Weekend with travel bloggers

The gang posing atop Brahmagiri hill Spent last weekend in cool Coorg with a bunch of travel and blog enthusiasts – some who I was already familiar with and a bunch of new faces. It was great to meet the folks whose blogs I had been following for a while now – Arun and Mridula amongst others.

Blog Updates

I realised that loads of links on my travel page were not working. Finally got around to fixing them and have also updated my 2007 travel section. I still need to add some of my latest travel reports from Agumbe and Bhutan. I often have people emailing me or leaving comments asking for suggestions etc. on travel. I’ve also created this page with travel related links that I hope you will find useful. In case you want to suggest anything useful, do leave a comment or email me (anitabora5 at rediffmail dot com).

If you’ve been a regular reader and want to be added, and I’ve left you out, please do let me know. I have also removed the drop down and changed them into normal links for easier access. The only problem is that it’s terribly long, but I think I’ll …

Comment problems

I had a few complaints from folks not being able to leave comments. Apparently, the version of spam karma2 I’m using is not compatible with this template and so the comments were not being accepted. It’s been fixed now, so please do leave me a comment or two so I know it’s working fine 🙂 In case, you’re still having problems, drop in a mail at anitabora5 at rediffmail dot com.
