This is not a usual milestone post, but first of all, let me THANK YOU for reading this blog. My current stats are like,
101 posts, spread into 13 different categories with 194 people following me and 4875 views, 1671 comments. I just can’t thank you all enough for reading things I have put up.
When I had a lot of free time from work some 4 years back, I started off with Short stories. This is my first short story here, followed by this. I just loved these, for 4 important friends in my life proof read this and I had taken over a week to completely write it down. I have a notepad where I write my stories and poems down. Later on whenever an idea occurred, I would write the idea down and then later on coming back and writing the story. There are few of my stories which I have not published here, few of them which are there in my first blog (of which I copied a number of them here).
I don’t know how the poems came, but I started getting lazy and I shortened my ideas and made it poems. I think I have published more poems and bs than anything else. Anyone who knows me would laugh when he knows I write poems, not because I write good/bad but I was just not that kind of guy. A fan of boxing, a fan of football, a fan of cars/motorcycles – that was me. Life can take 360 degree turns sometimes 😥 and I must confess it can be pretty shit.
I think I have deviated a lot from the initial plan, creating number of categories and ranting about usual stuff. I don’t for a bit, regret that, but I think it’s time to shape the blog into what it was meant for. The best excuse I have for deviating from my plans is, I was obsessed with WP, actually I am. So many things to read, so many people I know, in so less time. Aww.. it felt good. WP became my FB and I stopped using FB, which I am really glad about. FB is just a blown up baloon, you see people doing wonderful things, just to realize that your life is more pathetic than you thought. I hate that, instead now I would post pics, and videos and just log off from there 😀 Smart ass…
I think I have spent a lot of time here, 1 post in 3-4 days average (200+ days and 101 posts) but I have definitely tried to maintain the quality. After doing a few initial posts, I stopped looking up on Google for synonyms, and number of times that I proof read reduced from 6-7 to 2-3 times. Recently after 75 posts, this realization came that this blog is not what it was meant to be. I wanted to round it off to 100 before I try and reshape my blog.
So let me conclude again, by saying that I am seriously thinking of axing the sections like rumblings, poems, un-parliamentary from now on and would concentrate posting only Short stories, Photographs, Travelogues & Automotive. At least I would try not to post any of my rantings, or poems here. Rather just write it down in my old note pad…
If ever I am going to be in need of ranting, I am going to do it here. I am a guest author here, and I have been thinking about ranting on the Indian Weed, the Ganja 😀 and our college experiences, which I will definitely do.
Since I am not a great expert in automobiles, and I don’t get that much of a chance to drive different cars, the automobile section is going to be dry. Again traveling needs money, and I don’t travel much these days cos of that, travelogues section is again going to be dry. Hopefully the other two might not be void of posts, for too long.
So again, a very thank you to everyone following and reading this blog. I think I have done the right thing by calling off the extras, hope I don’t rethink on it and start posting them again. I hope I can improve the quality of my posts in the coming days 🙂
Please also know that if I have followed your blog, I have read 2 or more than 2 of your posts. I wouldn’t hit the follow button if I haven’t read your post.
Thank you guys, have a great time ahead!
