Blogging

When i started writing this blog, thought i would write less than ten posts, see that the page view count is 300 even after a month, lose interest in blogging and delete it. I actually started this blog out of boredom at work. (never gonna ask my manager to read my blog) It doesn't look good on me right? Though i have a great manager who knows exactly when to be a friend and when to shower us with work (see how my mind works? even if manager reads, she'll feel good about this, won't she? )

What was i talking about? Oh yea, Blogging. When i told my mum about it, she was so proud and looked at me like i just told her my book won an award or something. That was a nice feeling though she had no idea what blogging was. Told few of my friends to read my blog and their instant reaction was "send me the Facebook link" Obviously they had no idea too. Took almost half an hour to explain about Blogger, Blogs, Posts, comments and stuff. End of which they were least interested. Didn't even ask what my blog title was. Was not discouraged at all 'cos thought this blog wouldn't survive for more than a month.

So what started as something to type and look busy at work became a habit. Something very close to me. Now I've something to say, something to write about almost everyday. No idea how long this would last.

For few months i didn't even look at the page view count. Today when the view count has crossed eleven thousand, it feels so great to know that people actually read my blog. Yay..!!!! Im doing my victory dance right now. (My victory dance step is the one Adnan Sami does in his song Lift karadey, i do only the lifting hand part) I'm so happy today, going to add sugar to my tea and not have upma for lunch.

Here is Adnan Sami's song I'm talking about.

  2. Its like a coincidence that happened to me yesterday Kavya. After a really long time i wrote a post couple of days back, one i felt quite happy abt once i finished it. But there were no readers as usual. I enthusiastically requested a close grp of my friends in facebook to visit my blog. I felt so dumb that i did that. i deleted that post in a couple of hrs. I know they wont come back after one visit. I better write for myself. The idea is to persist like you did. When the time comes,people will come for sure..

  3. When I started blogging, I too was with the same notion to spread all around the world what I had written. So I started with my friends. So they asked exactly what you mentioned. I had to explain about everything and at the end of the day, I even motivated some to write. But as time flew by, they stopped reading and writing as well. They never understood the essence of writing, may be.

    So, Now. I don't usually mind about who reads.
    When I feel like writing, I write and it is a sort of happiness to self.

    And Congrats. Keep writing. :)

  6. Kavya, you have been my inspiration. I wanted to blog for a long time, but somehow did not start. I have now started blogging, thanks to you.

    For me, blogging is my expression of thoughts, it is OK if people do not read :)
