I began blogging long ago, in these days, it seems almost alike a millennium. The urge to write was probably hidden deep inside me, and it took quite a bit of lifetime to uncover it. Well, i guess, to say i write, is to put it mildly, i actually rant. And thats how i began. My first blog, still exists, ck2.blogspot.com, blogspot made things a little easy to write and publish. But things were still going slow, till Yahoo launched its own blogging portal – 360.yahoo.com, and thats when i became prolific. A blog a day, everything i saw, heard, felt, had to be converted into a blog. I had a small following, basically a motley crew of people with common interest, who hung around in this virtual space, patting each other, for our otherwise horror filled, writing efforts.
Yahoo soon decided to shuts its shop, and this was rather evident, much earlier, when things were not working they were supposed to. In this melee, i was lost for a brief period trying to figure out what to do. Till i discovered wordpress. I wonder why i didnt use my handle created long back, much more usefully. I today maintain about 4 blogs, all updated about once a month.
I use my blogs to bring out the frustration in me, when i see things that dont make sense. Make sense, according to me, and to me, i am the best expert i know. My friends in the real world dont completely share this opinion, i dont ask them, but they do tell me anyway, often enough. My friends in the virtual world, think otherwise. Well not exactly. Mind you these friends are real, only thing is that we exist and share things in a virtual space. I have seen or met only a couple of them. I try not to publicize my blogs, i am not shy, i am just indifferent about the fact that i blog. I tell people when they ask, and do add it to sites that are associated to me. So, i a sense, you can find my blog from many different ‘watering holes’ on the internet.
