ब्लगिङ का ३ वर्ष

यी ३ वर्षहरु कति छिटो बिते पत्तै भएन । केयु मा आफ्नो इन्जिनियरिङ सँगै सुरु भएको ‘आकारपोष्ट’ र ‘आकार’ ले ३ वर्ष पार गरेर चौथो वर्षमा प्रवेश गर्दैछ । याहु ३६० बाट केही पहिले नै सुरु गरिएको ब्लगिङ अनुभव, धेरै ब्लगहरु मा प्रयोग  गरेको थिँए । इन्टरनेट तथा ज्ञान को अभाव मा ती पहिले का ब्लगहरु कता हराए थाहा छैन तर अन्तिम मा ‘आकारपोस्ट डट ब्लगस्पट’ मा आएर खास ब्लगिङ सुरु भएको थियो । के पाइयो ?ब्लग का माध्यमबाट धेरै साथि बनाउने र उनीहरु को विचार बुझ्ने मौका पाइयो । साथै, आफूलाई पनि लागेको कुराहरु निर्धक्क लेख्न पाइयो । अहिले को युग मा सबैभन्दा ठूलो कुरा भनेको परिचय भन्ने कुरा रहेछ । कतै कुना मा लुकिरहेको मलाई, मेरो आफ्नै नाम ले कमैले चिने पनि, आफ्नो विश्वविद्यालय को सेरोफेरो मा ‘आकार’, ‘ब्लगर’ को नाम ले चिनिएकोछु । साथै, अनलाईन मा पनि केही ले मलाई ‘आकार’ भनेर चिन्नुहुन्छ । मलाई लाग्छ, अहिले सम्म पाएको ठूलो कुरा नै यही नाम हो ! सायद म यो नामलाई आजन्म छोड्नेछैन, अनि सकेसम्म ‘आकारपोष्ट’लाई सदैव निरन्तरता दिने प्रयास गर्नेछु, यही ‘आकार’ नाम राखिराख्न को लागि ! कोही कोही भन्छन्, मिडिया पढ्नु पर्ने …
