That's when the topic slid to my blog and then the word entertainment crept in. And that got me thinking about why I blog.
I've seen some blogs that are just a personal diary which chronicle their day to day lives. This is a good way for friends and family to keep in touch and know how the blogger is faring.
And then there's the frequently updated typical geek blog - news, updates, Google and MSN, condition of Iraq and so on. The path advocated by Joel and the like for putting your blog on your resume.
We can't forget the literary blogs which create magic with words. Beauty reigns and its sheer delight to watch the words play with each other.
And the sports blog, lingual blogs, life@Msft blogs ...
My blog is certainly not geeky, no news or even sports. And I try to keep personal stuff to the minimum. When I started blogging, I resolved to not write about anything about my life, but it's difficult to separate me from my writing. So now I just try not to make it very what-I-did-todayish. What I am trying for is essentially a "feel good" feeling. I want people reading my blogs and I want them to read it hopefully with a smile and to relate to what I write (and not judge me :-) ). Even if I feel strongly about something, I try to disguise it under something frivolous.
So I sign off with a promise to be shallow and silly forever and ever! :-)
PS 1 : I will link to D's blog once it is up and running.
PS 2: Its become fashionable nowadays to talk of motives behind blogging. I am feeling relieved now, I am on the right side of the boat! :-)
