Just a "yellow" note...

It feels like ages since I visited this space. My regular haunt was getting neglected and although I am unable to cite one particular reason for my being out of the loop, I can quite surely say that I missed you all.
So today, when I opened up my dashboard to post in a draft, I was flabbergasted. It was the same uncanny feeling you experience when you leave behind a friend only to return after a while and find yourself staring into the eyes of a stranger.Yes, Blogger had changed its design. The look was different. The tools were unfamiliar. I was trapped in strange surroundings. I felt cheated.

However, much to my relief, this sense of betrayal lasted only for a while, until I figured that even though much had changed, all my posts were intact. So were my followers and side bar widgets.
Once I was out from the panic mode, everything seemed pretty much the same except for the fact that I would need to get acquainted to this idea of a new dashboard avtaar and a few nitty-gritty changes in settings.

Looking at the bright side, it was a new improved version.

Then what was it that made me panic?

That was when a totally unrelated thought got stuck in my head---Is the familiarity of the old so comforting that we fear to adapt to the vicissitude of the new???

thats because you visited after long time because blogger has implemented these changes step by step... and not all at once

and i guess it took them almost one and half month or may be more to be here ...

It certainly happens with me. So, my answer is yes, sometimes we are so comfortable with the familiar things that we fear to adopt the new.

The interesting thing here is not that you panicked, but that you started analysing the reasons as to why you did .

Reminds me of the olden days when a girl going from a maika to sasural the first time, just faced up to it, and didnt think too much about the how and why and wherefores. A kind of forward looking attitude.

Just saying ..... :-))

How true. The same happened with me when I visited blogger after long. And its true with life too. When things change or people change, its the unfamiliarity with the new that makes us panic more than accepting it. Thats how we react to change unaware of the fact that " Change is life"

Stumbled on your blog. Good read. It is human tendency to stay in comfort zone. And hence adapting to new might be a herculean task, sometimes.

Happens to all of us, doesn't it? When change is thrown at us, it baffles us. But I guess it is just taking a natural course. I hate constant changes FB does to its interface.
