Another one on Blogging

Nu says she’s a Blogoholic and Pins says she’s addicted. If given a chance we’d all attach many such similar adjectives to our names. Blogging is like that one drug which when administered in our body even once enters our bloodstream in such a way that it makes us crave for it more and more. Right?

We write once and we’ve to write more…we read once and we’ve to read more…we comment on some blog and come back to see ours to check if our gesture has been returned :P…we pick out our favourite ones and follow them…we voice our thoughts and opinions freely…talk about issues bothering us without having to bother about the repercussions…its a virtual world but still so real..

All this is much beyond non-bloggers though. For them such cute little paranoia’s are comparable with temporary insanity and obsessive Blogomania! Don’t agree with me?? I’ll tell you what all I’ve had to endure after being a part of this world.

After returning home from work the first thing A asks me everyday, ‘ So did you write a post today?’ (Hello…what happened to the ‘How was your day’ routine?)

He simply has to see what I’m reading! He reads posts from over my shoulders standing behind me and then says, ‘What’s the big deal behind writing this? So and so happened with so and so, what’s there to write about it?’ (I didn’t call him to read it now, did I?)

I’m commenting on someone’s post. He has to point out atleast once that if its not compulsory why do I have to do it at all. I’ve to think and comment, so why the needless stress on the brain?

This one is funny. I follow a lot of people many of whom don’t follow me back. Nevertheless I visit their blogs and read them regularly. He seems to not like it. He says I must get them to read me! Doesn’t that sound desperate and needy I ask. He doesn’t answer but stands firm on his views 😛

If I’m chatting with someone on Gtalk he asks me, ‘So is this person your school friend/college friend/colleague/acquaintance or most likely a blog friend? Don’t you guys talk too much on blogs already?’

Many more such things to add, but you already know what I mean to say right? The concept is completely lost on these people. Smartly judging that such remarks invite only my wrath he’s learnt to hold his tongue on few occasions. Good for him.

Notwithstanding his comments I love to be here and will continue to do so, always 🙂

  13. Most of my friends are non blogging friends, and frankly not one of them has read through my blog!! Sad little island there. But I was deeply touched when instead I could make blogger buddies with whom I could relate to, and vice versa.Nevertheless, I seem to be blogging much less then I used to since I was in Petersburg. Dunno why, guess back here I see and interact less with people and places. Hopefully things will change when internship begins!!!

  14. @Vyazz: Same here..none of my friends blog…after I told them to go through my blog they did oblige (I guess) but the reactions were definitely not the kind I get from blogger friends out here. What I like is the ease with which we can relate to people out here without knowing anything about them!Oh I'm sure after your internship begins you'll have a lot to share with us. Hope it leaves you with the energy to write, for as far as I know it can be grueling at times. We love to read you and would want you to write more often 🙂

  17. the L&M loyally subscribed to my posts on the very first day and tut-tuts when he doesn't have the time to read. and he comments too, albeit only verbally: "that was only so-so," or "Achcha tha!" Lucky me, ma?

  18. @zephyr: A does read my posts sometimes…and to my relief and surprise even likes a few (especially the ones on A Jr)but he's a critic one would definitely not like having at home! Yes…you are lucky…many of us here have husbands who think we've contracted the blogging disease. 😛

  19. @Analyst: Usually it goes the other way round…when people start dropping in more you feel encouraged by the readership…that's what I feel..you mean you don't like blogging anymore?

    1. Writing can be tedious if we do it as a compulsion. On days we don’t feel like it we can take breaks. Verbally is easy, agreed, but somehow I find expressing through writing easier.
