Part 1 :-
I'm here to make Confessions...lots of "bloggical" confessions...!!
A few months back,I was surfing through blogs,lots of blogs.All the blogs that I came across had 50,100,150,200,250 and so on number of followers,lotssssssssssss of comments & many many manyyyyy awards.
I was indeed envious of all those people.I was angry seeing that number-the huge number of visitors,comments and followers.
All those "Not-so-good" kind of feelings came to my mind.It was not that I felt that their posts were better than mine or my posts were better than them.I just felt a bit of a complex.
But then I realized...The aim of my blog is not to get comments,not to collect followers & display awards.The aim of my blog is just to write what I've felt,thought and it's all about MY UNSAID WORDS,MY UNEXPRESSED FEELINGS.
Moreover,I don't write for money from google adsense.So in short,I write for me,about me and I write in the way I want it to be.
I don't publicize my blog except for the social networking sites and messenger status messages,& that too I do it 'cause they ask for the webpage. :)[I don't mind others doing that :D.]
Yes,I don't deny I never publicized my blog,I sure did & it gave me some of the most special comments of my life.[I shall write about those comments some other day].I cannot say blogging gave me wonderful friends or best friends,but it gave me very good friends.It doesn't matter if they're not my best friends,but the most important thing is they're all genuine & good at heart which makes each of them so unique and close to my heart.I may not talk to them everyday,but still---Reading their blog/comment or sometimes just their name in my messenger list makes my day.
So finally I realized,each writer/blogger is special & I don't think I'll be able to answer,if someone asks me "Who is the best blogger,according to you?? " :D
Whenever there're blog contests,I read all the posts & I love all of them.I feel really bad for the posts which do not win.
And I don't participate with that fear of losing perhaps/the fear of my words being compared to someone else's.
It was indeed horrible on my part to be jealous of the bloggers 'cause I love reading all of them & I don't think it's reasonable on my[or anyone's] part to feel that way.
Actually,some other people also told me about a similar kind of feeling.I just want to say one thing--We all are a community,a united family.It's not justified for anyone to be prejudiced towards anyone's blog.That's my personal opinion.
I guess blog cold-wars should not happen.We're not here to humiliate other bloggers & as an ethical blogger,we should take care that we maintain other bloggers' dignity & don't offend anyone...Hope it was not a bit too much! :)
I'M REALLY SORRY !! :|
Part 2 :-
23rd July was my blog's 2nd birthday.I had my exams during those days,so obviously I couldn't write anything/schedule any post too..
WISHING YOU A VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAYYYYYY...
I really want to thank everyone who has ever commented on my blog,each one who comments on "EVERY" post of mine even without asking them to do so & each one who reads it.
Some people read it,love it,never comment.[They let me know on gtalk. :) ]
Some people don't like it,comment there itself.
Some people don't like it,but tell me on gtalk.[They don't generally comment.]
But among all these people,there are a few people I've to specially thank!
1) The one who pushed me in the world of blogging.
Yes,I was "pushed" in the world of blogging.I was never into all this,I used to write "on paper" 'cause it was a passion,I just used to pen down my thoughts randomly in my diary.At first,it was like a dangerous roller-coaster ride & I was scared---But gradually I don't know how,but I began to enjoy the ride !! :)
Thank youuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu !!!!!!
2) The one who commented for the first time.
3) The one who was my first follower.
4) The ones who made sure I stay here ....
I thank each one of you here,reading this.
[This post is not targetted towards anyone specific.No further questions please.]
:) Friendship Day post on "My random outbursts" tomorrow[i.e. 2nd August 00:00:00 AM]
