Only one month of active blogging and I find myself more refreshed, more alert, and totally rejuvenated. As I read yesterday “Just as working out daily in the gym increases one’s fitness, regular writing makes one a better writer.”.
Suddenly I find myself brimming with ideas. It is said empty mind is devil’s work shop but I would say empty mind is the right ground for blogging workshop.
For me blogging has become an addiction these days. The only thing I think these days is what I should write? This media has made my otherwise barren mind a fertile ground for ideas. .
Just an example if I happen to go anywhere, as soon as I leave my place the ideas start storming my mind and by the time I reach my destination I have already written a fully fledged blog ( in my mind) and in my return journey another blog is all set to take birth
The only problem is when I actually sit to pen down the product of my ruminating sessions, all the ideas get so jumbled up that nothing coherent comes from my cramped head.
While going through some blog I read “Respect your reader’s time. When someone is online reading your blog, there are a thousand other things they can do with their time”
Reading this made me go into introspection regarding the contents of my blog. I know my weakness. Normally Whenever I sit down to express myself ,the words flow like a free flowing stream and then there is no stopping it. But then I have to consider my blogging buddies( so what, even if very few read my blog , but I must respect them and their time . They must get value for time and my expressions should not get so lengthy so as to make all of them skip through the entire post or make them restless or so bored that they never return back to blog.
So today I took three resolutions as far as my writing is concerned
1. From now onwards I will make conscious efforts to keep my blog short. No going on and on ( some restrain has to be there)
2. From now onwards I will try to write meaningful and interesting posts daily
3. And, if I am not able to adhere to my above two resolutions then I will not bang my head to full fill them. Once in a while deviation from the routine will be allowed and I will let the word diarrhea flow freely (after all I am here to express myself and give concrete shape to my beliefs and this is the media which has given me my identity )
So here I am wishing myself all the best with my resolutions and happy blogging.
