World of Blogging

Well i wanted to leave a comment on one of my friend's recent post called " what's the big hoo-haa?? ", but then i had lot more to say than just leave a line so thought of blogging it;).

I started blogging in the month of July 2004 just for the heck of it. As time passed by, i made it a medium to voice my thoughts and opinions on vast topics. I have been blogging on music, events in the city, sports, politics, meeting different people, On Bangalore City. Now i even have a separate blog for my favorite passtime Photography and another blog just on technology and gadgets.

Blogging has brought the world around me lot more closer & also happened to forge virtual-friendships. I have come across some interesting people from different continents, which wouldn't have happened without blogging.

Internet brings freedom to cross the boundaries just by sitting in our rooms, it has a lot of pros and cons which can be debated. It's the same with blogging or for that matter Technology in general, it can be used or absued. So it all depends on the nature of a person how best to make use of the technology. It can be used both for and against any cause or purpose. Ther is this blog called "I Hate My Flatmate" which i came across last month which has made headlines on some of the major Newspapers in the world, here the flat mate has made use of blogging as a medium to express his/her thoughts about the daily habits which irritated that person.

I have come across blogs written by high school kids, technology geeks, Techincal writers, Architects, Social organisations, Poets, Doctors, Engineers, Escorts, Fashion Designers, Single Mothers, for that matter people from all wlaks of life are blgging on diverse subjects. Now even IT organisations have blogs on their website and encourage their staff to blog. I feel Blogging is an open-medium for expressions one's thoughts, opinions & feelings. As i said before it can be used or abused like any other technology, its all lies with the person on how to make use of it.

Great post, I started blogging becuase I saw people posting there thoughts and getting feedback, I though I would do the same. Since then I have met so many great people from other sides of the globe. Blogging is a way we can really express ourselves, and get feedback and opposition.

You know I started my blog to get all the pent up frustration of a broken and beaten heart out. I was hurting and needing an outlet. That is now what has become "confessions of a girl on her way home." I feel ultimately this is my journey threw life and yall are hearing my personal confessions. I also have gotten some of the best friends I have out of this blogging experience. I wouldnt change it for the world.

It's always good to channelise your thoughts & opinions in the best possible way. I feel blogging gives us the freedom to do it.

I loved most of your poems which speak abt many aspects of life & your experiences in particular.

Keep blogging!!!

Thank you I will... Most of the poems are very highly personally written. I put alot of my soul into some. Others are painful to write but healing to reread and get feed back on. I think my favorite feed back is on poems I have written...
