A Busy Platform!

When I speak of a platform and that too a busy one, most of you there will probably relate to a railway platform. And if not, then you probably wouldn't picture what I am talking about anyway! So keeping no suspense, I would tell you that I was talking about a platform for expressing your views and baring your personal life (which doesn't remain so personal once you make a blog out of it). Anyway, on with my post

Lots of people have been chiding me for not writing anything on my blog since ages. Not the least of them is "Digit Fastrack" - because this time around (or the previous issue, the date escapes my mind) they carried a fastrack on blogging. And our oh-so-loved Blogger was on the list of the most popular blogging sites. Yay for Blogger!

And the fact that I have a presentation due on September the ninth on Web 2.0, which, among other things, includes blogging has made me put some thought into the blogosphere (along with millions of individuals, who blog). Now when I first started blogging it was completely out of curiosity, and the exhilaration of the fact that I could write whatever I want, and a whole lot (technically the whole junta would be able to see it) . However, in spite of knowing why I started blogging, I now wonder why the hell I started it! For one, you must be one of the happiest of the crowd of the world, which in Punjabi is interpreted as "Vella" - an idle person, unless you earn with your blogging and are hell bent on it. And I am exactly not that. That accounts for the fact that my blogging (or rather, the lack of it) has drawn flak from my peers (people who peered at my blog after yawning, and yawned after peering at my blog through their browsers).

Anyway, that is still only in the game, for there are things I would rather tell you than keep with me. (Like how stupid you are, reading this blog - okay I was only kidding, after all, you can always write in the comments portion that I couldn't be more stupid, if I wrote for a stupid audience). I actually meant that if I do not share secrets (typical girl that I am!) I will only rest in pieces, and not in peace (let alone in one-piece). So Hooray! That makes just another post on my blog! And makes you just another reader...

Celebrate this mundane occasion while I ponder on the intricacies of the second version of the web. Fare Well!

I havent heard yet of anything really damn in blogging... like those controversies and fallacies that pop out every dayin yahoo mail and orkut...

So blogging is supposedly the safest place to write your....er what??? yourself, i suppose...

Blogging gets us happiness, nothing monetary though, but a kind of secret delight independent of who is going to watch your blog.
And also, all the suddenly i found myself more expressive after i started blogging...certain things i could never say, i could write....

So there having been just another reader, I end just another comment to your just another post.....

lol
bye

Patchez said...

Yea.. that's why English is so funny...

jayant said...

Well,am speechless!!!
(at ur stupidity..lolz :P)

anyways,the serious stuff follows:
Firstly, blogs arent necessarily meant for blowing trumpets about ur pvt life.My interpretation is that, you can make people know what you feel about them without actually making them aware that you know that they know what you feel about it,well..I thought that was complicated enough..
and yeah, putting on the critics hat, I'd say that this is excusable since it's one of ur initial posts but please add some more meaning to ur future blogs.. (no offense intended, just a suggestion)
take care

Patchez said...

Will take that suggestion.. tho u must have already come to knw i have an irritating tendency to exaggerate :P

camsimar said...

Well i don't believe that it's just another post by you on your blog.. as I'm very sure that there is some deep thinking involved to put these words together... :) as it's not easy to express... ;)

stay happy... :D
and be true.. :P

Patchez said...

Take care Simar.. :)

@Jayant.. I know things about how personal ur life remains after you publish ur blog.. :P

Ciao!
