My first post!

And now I don't know what to write!

Now don't get me wrong here, I like reading blogs. My day begins with checking on my favorite bloggers(nah I don't do the RSS thingummy!), in fact I do this before even checking my mail sometimes.

I wondered if this has something to do with the written word. I mean, I love reading in general - books, newspapers, mags. Maybe blogs just fall into that category and I am not just meant to "do" blogs!

But then again its not like I am so fascinated with words that I can only stare at them. I can write too. At school I used to be the first to take part in all kinds of creative writing stuff(the fact that I never used to win is actually irrelevant here!). The fact remains - I am not intimidated by writing.

G, as always, had a ready answer to this problem of mine, "You don't have anything to say! You don't even open your mouth in team meetings, I can't imagine you having anything so important to say to the whole wide web world". I pooh-poohed this at once. For God's sake I am not setting up a news site or some kind announcement portal. It's just my place on the net where I talk about things that matter to me, happen to me or don't matter or don't happen yada yada yada. "There I go", I thought to myself smugly. I have got the whole thing figured out now. I just need to find some topic under the sun, that interests me even slightly and I can blog my heart out - that should be easy!

Which brings me back to - And now I don't know what to write!
