Knock knock

I am going through one of those phases of life when you need to be really patient. And I am not the kind who takes a deep breath and waits and keeps patience. I am the kind who takes tension, imagines the worst and does nothing about it. Yes, I am a pessimist.
And though I would also add that I am a fantastical optimist in many many ways, I usually  tend to become pessimistic in the name of "being prepared for the worst". And that doesn't work. All I need right now is a little patience and a little will power. And things will fall in place. I am waiting with bated breath for this time to pass. I am waiting to get a job.

Hey you.. Mr. Opportunity! Come knock my door.

Blogging.. ab, yahan, aise!

I have been away for sometime now...and have a LOT OF unread posts! Please excuse me if I'm not able to comment on your blog timely :) You can now expect a deluge of comments from my side.

I have a clarification to make. My last post was a little misunderstood I guess :-|
I was trying to be witty and tell people how despite having all the reasons, I still couldn't blog...but.. people only understood my excuses and not the fun things I was upto..
Peooppppllleeeee... all the things that are mentioned in "When do people blog?" are the things that I did.. and not  my take on the subject :P So now please.. go ahead.. read that post again.. and come back here! After all I own a new awesome laptop now.. and have a piercing!! Don't you have things to say to me ;)

Will be back with a REAL post REAL soon!

Blogging.. kab, kahan, kaise???

When do people blog?

People blog when there is something to talk about. In fact everything that happens in a blogger's life is sifted on the basis of its worthiness to appear on the blog. Some of the common occasions that trigger the act of blogging are as follows-

1. Festive season like Christmas and new year churns out great blog posts, and also makes for many, though a tad boring, comments.. as most of the people happily send their wishes for the season! Such posts tend to be very elaborate and descriptive with all the prettiness and fun around.

2. Another favourite topic amongst bloggers is tales on travelling- things that happen on the way, stuff they see they experience, or something like "packingand being excited for going home and then missing the train or something equally interesting! Such posts tend to be very funny or fascinating depending upon the story and the story teller.

3. Bloggers like to share their happiness by writing about new assets that are recently bought like a new Dell laptop and the several stories attached to buying the 'thing' with other details like the super cool red colour of the laptop and fancy attachments. Such posts are usually the 'happy' posts where others congratulate the blogger and the blogger feels on top of the world.

4. Whenever a blogger does something NEW, he/she is not only excited about doing it.. but also about telling  it to the whole wide world. New things, like the blogger getting a piercing, have their own charm and make for very enthusiastic blog posts buzzing freshness into the blog space.

5. Just like good news makes awesome blog posts, bad news also makes awesome, rather awesome-er,  blog posts. Something like a very very pathetic hair cut where the blogger would want to wrap herself in a shawl forever, turn out to become hilarious blog posts which immediately perk the blogger up with 'support' and 'love' from fellow blogger friends.

But there are times when bloggers can't post anything despite all the 'worthy' events happening around. Though the blogger strolls around the blogosphere visiting friends and strangers, he/she is not able to write a post to save the day! Following could be a few reasons for the inability-

1. The blogger may not blog because of the climatic conditions. No no global warming has nothing to do with this! *or may be it does* Many a times a change of location, like from Bangalore to a north indian city, during winters could be very hard on the blogger. The blogger may not be able to take the COLD, and end up lying curled up inside the warm blanket with the head outside, only reading other blogs.

2. Another reason for not blogging may spring from point # 1. The blogger might be so engrossed in reading other blog posts that he/she may not be able to write something equally nice and therefore end up writing nothing at all.

3. One more *major* reason why people don't blog is plain laziness. Period.

4. Sometimes bloggers don't write a post for a long time, if the earlier post had been very popular and received more than 30 comments, a rarity on the blog, for the first time. :D

5. Bloggers are usually of many kinds, but there are some intrinsic qualities that are found common in all bloggers. One such thing is being moody. The buck stops there.

P.S: ... so now you know why I was away !!!
