The other day I was having a casual discussion with my hi-bye friend on what keeps me occupied besides my job,when I mentioned,I love reading,blogging etc. The nut replied,”ohh how do you manage to take time out for blogging? And are you so lonely that you don’t have anything better to do?”
I looked at him with my dropped jaw 😦 Come on,I love blogging,rather it’s my attempt to improvise my writing skills.It gives me an opportunity to make new friends,understand them,their views,their takes on different aspects. To this the friend smartly replied,”but you are a married lady with loving,doting husband and leading rather a happy life,then what attracts you to the lonely,virtual world of blogging? Lonely people who do not have sufficient listening ears, take shelter in blogging.In western countries,where people are not social animals like we Indian,many turn to blogging.It’s an effective way of taking out your frustrations as well”.
Whatever he said was partially true,in Western countries people are not that social and care for their space,privacy and prefer spending time on fruitful activities including blogging rather than socializing. But I don’t think only lonely people take to the blogging,to get rid of their loneliness.Basic reason behind people taking to blogging is their love for writing,their love for expressing views on different topics,some like to share their thought process with like minded people.Some stars like Big B,Aamir Khan,SRK want to reach to their fans directly without any media intervention and blogging is one of the best medium for them. I believe,in most cases it is an urge to to summarize life and it’s experiences and your views on it AS IT IS !!!!!!! Blog is the reflection of real you and your thought process.
In fact I would say,a blogger is multitalented person who observes every small thing around him with great curiosity n presents to the virtual world in his/her own style.In my opinion blogger is never lonely with like minded people around.What you say?????
