This is going to be my first post ever in this blogging world. As of now I don't own any blog ( so plz be nice to me ;))
Couple of months back I was oblivious of existence of such an interactive world called BLOGGING. But yes here I am,writing a blog, thanks to DOV for letting me a part of this. I can spend my whole day reading, such is the love for reading.This love dates back to the 9th or 10th year of my life. During my visit to naani's (granny) home, we used to travel via train & there was this bookseller,with that Close Up smile on his face. Those colourful books were like a magnet. I was so enthralled with that Champak in my hand & used to finish reading the entire book in one go.
Once i suggested one of my friends to go for some novel to pass time but he retorted saying he's not interested in killing time by reading 'useless novels' rather he would go for something which would add to his intellect. I was like WTF! I felt like he's abnormal.:D But such is the world comprising people with personalities & demeanours in its myriad forms.
Everyone won't like, what you like.
Everyone won't think, what you think.
Everyone won't expect, what you expect.
There ARE like minded people but not necessarily around you. So accept the fact that this is yet another category of people with which you are sharing the world.
Coming to the writing part, I don't know what brings me here but I know this is (even while typing this post) & would give me uber satisfaction to pen down my thoughts, to channelize my energy, to interact with people, knowing that someone is interested what I am up to through my posts. But as they say 'everything comes at a cost' and here the cost is living with the fear of non acceptability.Going through some blogs I realised its not a cakewalk to grab the attention of readers. Neither am I a scintillating writer, nor do I possess any humour in my writing. So what if I am unable to bring any readers, what if nobody even cared to comment never mind follow the blog, what if I am criticized overtly and to make it worse publically . But then one day i read somewhere
"NEVER write about things the world wants to hear. Write about what you want to tell. The former is tempting, I agree, but the latter, you must know, is rewarding"
And that marks why I am here.
Apologies for the long post.:D but bear with this newbie.
P.S- constructive criticism is welcome.As you all have to guide me through.
