No title because I can't think of One!!!!!



Every time I start to type something in my blog post, I quiver...  It gives me the chills...
I am not able to fathom why?

Is it because I think I am bad at this or is it because I trust others think I am too bad at this...I just don't know...  we will find out..

I did a lot of research, (trust me, A LOT!)

Traveled through many blogs, WordPress-es* and I discovered that my writing style is very boring and I should stop writing...

But then my aspiring angel...  the small white miniature one standing on my right shoulder with a halo around her head and a lot of white make up,whispered into my ear that, boring bloggers like me make the interesting ones' worthwhile, she said if people like you don't blog the good blogs won’t be interesting anymore...

So me being the selfless soul decided to resume my blogging journey anyway...
My Life is mundane...  Therefore, there is not much to cover...

Nevertheless, the world has gone through a lot these 4 months...  and I am not going to talk about any of those...

You guys have to cultivate the habit of reading the Newspaper...  these journalists have to strive so hard to be creative ... we should show our appreciation by reading them..  Right???

I am going to talk about irrelevant and useless questions and answers that matters to people, for instance, ME...!!!!
Most of the bloggers might relate with me on this...

1) Why don't people read my blog...?
Ans: This is a very simple question .People do not read our blog for mainly two reasons.
 Some do not know it exists; some do not want it to exist.

2) Why don't people comment on my blog posts?
Ans.  I seriously do not understand why they don't...  I use the word "they" because I have never done that...If I read a blog post I make it a point to write my views about it...  that's precisely why I avoid reading blogs ..  On a serious note...  Reading our work and not commenting is like eating our food and not paying for it...  We have given you an emotion. You might have been bored, or you might have felt indifferent or lazy, or irritated...  We at the least gave you something to feel...  can’t you give us a comment about what you think...I have read so many brilliant blog posts with absolutely no reaction from anybody..  I am sure many would have read it..  However, no reaction at all...I am still waiting for an opinion on my last blog post, it is a nice poem people...  You are so rude....anyways this is for the lazy ones... but for the ones who only have profanities and anger; if your approach towards us is “Excuse me it is my will to read or comment or to go without it, you have no rights to question me “kindly stay away...  We do not want your honesty...

3) Why don't people share or talk about my blog post when they say it is very impressive?
Ans : This is very obvious ... maybe they don't think it’s worth sharing, or they do not want you to be famous...but off late I see a lot of them sharing blog posts and articles on social websites..  It is a positive change...  But honestly, some posts are quite dumb...  I wonder why my posts are not shared, as they are equally dumb...  On the other hand, is there a quality in dumbness that I have to adhere to...?  Never know...

4) What do the good bloggers have that I don’t?
Ans: This reminds me of a wife asking her husband why he is opting for his hot girlfriend ... She asks him “What does she have that I don't" and he laughs his ass off...
Now that is my answer too...  Someone must be laughing his or her ass off reading this...  (A famous blogger, of course...)

5) What should I do to get readers attention towards my blog?
Ans: I am blogging from the past 5 years and I am in the process of discovering the secret...  if I have the money I would have asked Sharukh Khan to advertise my blog on Doordarshan ...Unfortunately I have to depend on my husband to by a kilo of tomato, so you can imagine...

6) Why does the dumbest thing a famous writer says has a greater reception than the smartest thing I say...
Ans: Mainly because they are in the limelight...  The light flashes on them all the time, so we can see them, hear them and react to them...  The rest of us are in dark...  it is very difficult to find out who spoke, who wrote or who farted... All the great people whom we acknowledge now were in the dark during their times..  We talk about them now...  so may be few years down the line we might be the topic of a generation...  That is what I tell myself every morning before I go to the bathroom...

7) How do I market myself?
Ans: There are few strategies.....  The easy and straightforward approach, the deceptive and manipulative approach...  I follow the first one....
I closely watch some vendors who sell Maddur vade in small stops on the way to Mysore railway station (In the train of course)
They first ask us to buy, the next step they stand there, wait for us to react, the third they insist us to buy again, the next step they tell their sob story, and insist us to buy again...  And the last step they hold the vade basket closer to our nose to give us a glimpse of what they have and we finally give in...
Substitute the Maddur vade for my blog posts...  that is my idea of marketing....
The next strategy is being Deceptive and manipulative ...  I have seen few doing it...  But I never bother to look there... what’s the point???

8) Why the rat’s asses do I blog?
Ans: I understand I am a below average writer,
I understand I don't have the finesse of bringing people closer to me…
I understand I do not have the potential to keep readers interested…
I understand I do not possess knowledge to have the right edge…
I understand my lack of wit, sense of humor and rhetoric...
I also understand I do not know to market myself

But again irrespective of all the content above...  for me Blogging is never about how others see me...  it is about how I see myself...

I am an Ultracrepidarian, I am an Imperfectionist*, and I love to write and share my views

For me that is all we require to blog...  Love and passion to write and share...
And yes, the likes, comments, and appreciation are always welcome... We are much obliged to be acknowledged but even if we don't, even if we bore you to death...  we will continue to blog...  And I shall Blog more from now on...

If your question is “When you do not care much for readers’ reaction, why did you even bother to write this blog post”

Like I said…  I have seen some rude behavior, and I feel hurt when someone says, “why do these people write when they don’t have the flair for doing it" …it’s like saying she looks bad why on earth is she alive.. We intend to neither look bad nor write bad...  It’s just that few of us do not have the talent but are passionate about writing and expressing our take on life…
We do not and cannot live in solitude, we need to acknowledge and be acknowledged.. The theorem of be what you are even if the world turns against you will not work, we do need people ..but we also have to assure not to give in completely.. our life is all about striking the right balance...

The world is not made of beautiful people, likewise writing world is not made of great writers...  we have to learn to live with that...  This post is written keeping that in mind…

We do not have to confirm to anybody’s standards, we do not have to write or think in a particular way to sink into a particular crowd...  I trust, as readers’ and writers’ we have a long way to go to reach the state of an open mind for creativity… rather than sharing dumb quotes by famous people, let's cultivate the habit of sharing anything nice we come across... try not to make fun of people who have the right passion for writing but are not up to our sensibilities  .. Now,I sound like commandments... 

And I forgot to mention that I have seen and heard about good writers who have received true credit for their contribution, this is never about them...

I speak for all those good ones who are lost in the darker side of the ignorant world... and the ones who don’t have the flair but are passionate about it and are looking for motivation

Am I included in the List of Good writers...?

I don't think so...  I know I have a long way to go... :)

Finally, I leave you all with the Video I made for Father’s day
And yes, I used the Maddur Vade Strategy of pleading, waiting and asking them to see and share.
Some of them obliged, the rest did not...
But what the turtles dove...  I love it  even more ....








Now here comes my Disclaimer
Grammar Nazis pardon my typos Smiley

If you can become a bit professional, cut down those similes blinking between sentences and taking away their sheen. By the way, you've done a lot of rumination.....but that's too hard to pass a judgement on your skill. You've a way, of course and I wish you continue as always despite everything. NO comment pinches but a part of reading FB has snatched. Earlier, 8 years ago, I'd read blogs but now I don't, unfortunately for facebook. Still I write, no matter. Comment or no comment that does not matter. And it worries when something nonsense gets a lot of attention while something sagacious or having depth goes out of sight.


Dont' worry, go on....let nothing deter you. Wish you good luck in your writing journey. And for god's sake don't ever underestimate yourself, that's giving in easily.

Thanks.

Sudamji I have removed all the flashing smileys, thank you for the suggestion...Thank you for your nice words.. I am trying hard not to push myself beyond a point where I have to sacrifice my way of thinking to appeal to a certain school of thought...
No comment doesnt matter much.. who has the time to read these days.. but the dumbest thing few famous people say has such a wide reception.. I wonder whats wrong with us.. and now pointing that out I may sound like a frustrated person in envy of those famous ones.. but this is a real anguish of a person trying to be as sensible as possible.. I wonder if this sounds believable or not..
Thank you for your time sir... We continue our journey in writing with comments or no comments...

Very nice. Sorry it took me until today to read it, busy job hunting. I used to blog all the time but got too busy to continue. You get better the more you write. My father was a writer, and my sister is a professional writer and for years I thought I didn't get that gene so I never tried. When I first started blogging, only my friends were reading it, and then my last blog was found by a professer from an ivy league school who shared it with an associate, so you never know where it will lead you.
