Namesake/Pointless

I have always wondered how do I get topics to write…! Usually, I don’t frame a post for the sake of updating my blog. However, I should admit that this post doesn’t have a specific topic to speak about. Again, I am a lazy book reader (but I do read blogs) and so my vocabulary is not too good. My dad used to scold me for not reading books! But what to do, I’ve many books in my shelf that are half read. Only a few books like Arundati Roy’s The God of Small Things amuse me. I’ve read that book completely with so much of passion.

Now coming to the point of posting… Please don’t curse me after reading this saying the whole thing I wrote was worthless. Subjects come at some point to my mind, this time it didn’t happen. I waited for a whole week. My routine of posting at least one post per week has to go on. That’s the main reason of scribbling this ‘namesake’ post.

Moreover, the number of people following me has really surprised and scared me! I never expected such a huge number in my list even in my dreams! Similarly, the tension of whether I can fulfill their reading needs has really worried me. You may say blog is to express whatever you feel. But always remember, it is the readers who can help you improve your writing skills. While writing a comment on others blog posts, I always try not to hurt them because sometimes a single rude comment can kill a writer. It doesn’t mean I don’t criticize bloggers. Rarely, I do attack some bloggers though not in a way that it is going to ruin their self confidence.

Unbelievable, the word count of namesake post has crossed 300 words. Life has to move on and my blog too!!! So, stopping this idiocy here… See you soon with some interesting posts. Thanks for your patience!

(So many don’ts and can’ts here… Believe me, I’m an optimist)

  9. Sometimes, writing without a definite topic helps to overcome the writer's block... And stop being skeptical about your blog's popularity. There would be something 'special' in it for all the 137 of us to be following it na? So, stop wondering and enjoy...

    BTW, I am surprised to know that you found 'God of Small Things' amusing!!!

    Keep on writing -even if its for the sake of writing - few of us love to read you!!! :-)
