Thinking outside the blog

Its Sunday 6:54 pm, yet another S-day killed by the vivacious habit called slumbering by daylight. My “To-do-list” for the day,will be soon be christened as the “I-Don’t-give-a-Sh**” list by the end of the day.

Here’s me, Im not a regular blogger, and lets not forget the fact this blog is relatively new (very evident, from my blog archive), though im not new to the world of blogging.I’ve been around blogosphere for quite sometime, lying down low, reading other’s blogs.But sadly I couldn’t find time in this “quite-sometime” time to really blog bigtime ;) .

But cynical as it may sound “I find myself,-addicted to blogging” Muahahaaaa..Credits:Rahul Aggarwal.

Having dedicated and focused my entire life in the upliftment and growth of almost extinct arts of Wittism , sarcasm, boo-ism and crap-ism, I find my Blog,as a set stage, with no strings attached ,with no censor-board, and no audience too sometimes (comeon,you ppl, post ur comments…don’t just sneak out after reading em’)

Talking, about censorship,If only we had one., my post on “A series of Unfortunate events” would go- BEEPPPPPP,BEEP,BEEEP……BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP…………………

Okay, Let me ask you a simple question,A petite litmus test

Do you think of <anything>, that happens in you’re daily life, in terms of whether, it will make a good post on you’re blog.Then, CONGRATULATIONS mate, You are suffering from “-Blog addiction Syndrome.(Trust me, Im not making this up.).

Gone are the days, when you had an intimate phone conversation with a close friend of a break-up you just had.If you wanna catch up with what your friends are upto in life, all you have to do is just check his/her blog.

Some, people I’ve known through my life, have suddenly become self-acclaimed,Suddenly they’ve become critics, in the field politics,Science, Sports., wat not..Coz, they have a blog.No offence

But, maintaining a public forum like this, is something like being the hand of god, even if you’re posting about a Lingerie sale at a near by boutique, or about how legs gets sticky against a leather couch, after a long Sunday afternoon nap.

Whatever it maybe,At the end of the day, It’s a great feeling, when people who matter most in you’re life, and who really care to know what you’re upto ,can drop by from time to time to know what’s happening to you lately.

Here are some interesting, signs of blogoholics which i googled up, from other interesting similiar posts

  1. You find the cure for cancer, and you immediately write a blog about it.You think Nike should make a shirt that says “just blog it”.
  2. You sneak off during a date to check your hit stats.
  3. You check your Adsense revenue more than your bank account.
  4. You filter everything through your post-writing. You can’t watch a movie, see a play, read an article, or share a sweet moment with your child without thinking of whether it’s blog-worthy.
  5. After 5 minutes of meeting someone really interesting you ask, “So - do you blog?”
OMG, point 4 and 5, are disturbingly true.

Anyways, Happing blogging ppl, and proud to be blogoholic.
