Why I blog ?


This tag by Juneli I have to do ! Ahem ahem.. so many points to write down. But for the time being I should do the 5 point task only. The reasons behind my blogging is:

1. Because you read it !
I was born dumb and with a blank slate and was just looking everyone around – whatever smart or stupid I became because of all people and events around. So “You Run It” and ultimately “You Read It”. To explain: Communication with words is just half done, until it serves the purpose to reach the brains on the other head – and create up the effect one wants to generate. Otherwise the personal diary or these words saved in .txt format in the hard disk could have served the purpose of purging out or documentation. I fail to agree, when people give just a ‘single argument’ that one do blogging for oneself without expecting people around. People do love to be heard hence get read by others. I do read other blogs regularly, and also do ensure myself that people are reading me after checking my stats!

2. Because it’s an efficient intellectual connectivity beyond landline boundaries.
Write a letter to someone unknown five times, one may not reply positively or may scold you back. Go to some blog of at least equal level, read them regularly, feel them, put comments five times – in most of the case, if frequency matches, one will read you back and one may comment you back too. Once this bond is created – its better and more pure than the face to face attractions of daily life, as feelings are embedded in the posts. I have made global contacts of people of similar and contrasting thoughts, and also did participated in some of the much responsible works – that can never be given to any stranger. I did booked hotels for them, arranged tours, got job suggestions, technical know-how’s and of course some pretty gifts too. Is Jitu ji around !

These are the bonds – with the people who know the power of words – and we bloggers do respect despite all ups and downs. And a confession here is, at one point of time – I had even thought that may I get someone blogger around with whom my thoughts matches and we could blog together forever !

3. Because I want to be known as ‘just a writer’ after I die.
I have a deep urge to write a novel / story book before I die. Since childhood, the staple food from Ma is given is “the creativity and innovation never dies”. And only these things do carry all the information and knowledge forward from one generation to next. The blog is my jogging ground before I run, with pretty good actors and actresses walking around. So I do never use ‘rambling’ or ‘blabbering’ for blog posts – and instead of I did name as “You Run It”. Though I do write using my own few pounds grey matter – but my ultimate purpose remains, it should be beyond me – as I am just the elemental communicator to serve the broader purpose.

4. Because I want to get loved and hated.
Communication is my plus point of personality. Sometimes I take the pains of my neighbour and let them know, I am with you. At times I do make windows open after singing when I know the weather is going to be pretty good. Another times, I do shout when I guess my neighbours must close the windows as weather is going to really bad outside, and I wanted them protected ever. I am an active theatre person and words are my loved and hated actors on the blog stage, and I do pay a heavy price for getting them happy ending drama done! And so do I carry forward – your love and hate.

5. Because blogs have life like us – I do believe.
During initial days of blogging, the reply to one of my comment on one of the blog was so stark truth that I was bound to improve my writing skills and expression with tears in my eyes – the days of growth. And today I do feel at a satisfactory equilibrium, but still I am restless…. On the other hand, one day I had seen one of the blog being deleted in front of my eyes within minutes and that never came back in any other form. I do ensure that none of the blog stops ever as long as the writer is alive – that I read. The momentary chaos I do love than the absolute silence. I do blog to keep myself alive and make others active around.

Happy Blogging !

  1. Thank you so much for accepting the tag.

    I read it but will comment later on.

    Thanks once again 🙂

  2. You have accepted the tag because you felt that you are forced……. gurrrrrrrrrr kitkitttttttttttttt

    Anyway, whatever was the reason I’m really happy that I tagged you and got chance to read your feelings.

    1. Yes, because “we” read it and write it. I completely agree with you that blog is written for the readers too. I too do write for my bloggers too (and of course for myself too).

    I still remember that initial few post I wrote were for myself but later on I started to write for my readers. Might it is called blogging.

    2. Yes, it happens in blogsville. Blogging became boundless and bloggers are treated as family no matter they never have been face to face. It’s a very strange kind of bounds beyond the limit and boundaries.

    And about your thought “to blog together with someone”, I pray for you. Amen.

    3. Somehow we all are writer no matter only few people are our readers :). I can’t say about my but of course you write very well and many posts you have written are very thought provoking as well as informative and they are fulfilling your purpose.

    4. “Because I want to get loved and hated.” “words are my loved and hated actors on the blog stage,” very well said.

    5. Yes, blogs have life like us. I also agree on it. I also miss some bloggers who have closed down their blog and disappeared……. And this always reminds me the song “Jeevan ke safar mein rahi milte hai bichad jaane ko……..”

    One of my initial days blogger have left blogging….. I don’t know where was from he, where is he….. I even don’t know his real name…… I find very helpless…………….and the worse part – I don’t know even his email address where as most of my co bloggers are in touch by mails.

    Oh yes, initial days I also got some strake comments but I always took them positively. Might I still get but it’s fine. I don’t care for them but if it’s really constructive one then definitely I appreciate them.

    Loved this post of yours.

    So you are become very active as well as good boy accepting the home work I gave you 😉 :P.

    Thanks a million 🙂

  3. The fact is like many of us, I too did want to write about the reasons behind blogging , but I guess sometimes I need some kind of pushing to move forward. And this homework worked well 🙂
    One more tag task is remaining for me.. hope you have forget that one. LOL
    I do hope that the person is also searching you, in the same form, he left you. Wish you will be able to meet him again.
    Thanks for your wishes and the appreciations and yes the longest comment on my blog ever.

  4. Anyway son, I’ll laude you. The swollen, disruptive jessica simpson a public affair video of his occassion had leasurely just slipped multiple her entrants when she exploaded again.
