A Blog is Man's Second Best Friend

"Dude I am not a writer, can't write for nuts. What will I freaking write about......................."

This is what I told my friend around 6 months from now, before I started my blog and here I am writing my 50th blog post.

I was not really very sure what I wanted to write about in the 50th post. I could have told you my journey till now or from where the Idea about this blog came or what all I am doing now days or about my journey till the blog. And then I thought why should I write about so many different posts in one post :) I know you would love to know about me (I am a little self obsessed) and you will get to know about me but thats a lot of topics later.
Lets get on with the post now...

Something that you can expect though is me being much much more active on my social networking sites. Anyone who wants to connect to me there just follow the link. Me on facebook, Me on twitter

Also some of you might have noticed your comments are no longer called comments, they are called Kicks, you will know by the end of the post why it is so.

And now back to the important things in life...

I wanted to tell you all about something me and Parv discussed while coming back from the bloggers' meet (still have the hangover).

While we didn't discuss anything about blogging at the meet, me and Parv on our way back discussed why we blog. An interesting thing that we both sort of agreed on was the fact that when a person becomes addicted to blogging, the blog is no longer remain a thing that you just created on the net to write something.

It becomes a medium to convey your thoughts to the world and once you get readers and comments, it starts talking back to you. It becomes like a pet you come back to everyday. You look after it everyday, you feel bad when you don't feed (write something on it) it on a regular basis and it feels bad when you don't take it for a walk (to other blogs).

Coincidentally on the night before the meet I had seen this amazing movie called Marley and Me. An awesome story of a couple and their dog (the dog was the real hero even though he just acted like a normal dog)...... and this is what inspired the topic and the lines below.....

Yess!!! A blog is man's second best friend.... of course the First best friend is a dog :)

"A blog has no use for fancy cars (unless your blog is about cars) or big homes (unless your blog is about architecture) or designer clothes (only if you write about fashion). Status symbols means nothing to him. Even a normal really slow P3 comp will do just fine. A blog judges others not by their color or creed or class but by who they are inside (what they write about). A blog doesn't care if you are rich or poor,educated or illiterate, clever or dull. Give him your heart (and a little bit of time) and he will give you his. "


Cheers... Thank you for reading whatever I throw at you and giving me a kick(pun intended) every time you are here....

Things which i really appreciate about ur blog:-
1) Ur sincerity, 50th post in just 6months, really shows it:)
