Whoever said, 'its easy to write a blog' should be sent to the gallows. It took me a bit (4 years) before I mustered courage (tonight) to put a decent post - I hope it turns out a decent one and if you do not like it visit again to read the next one (hopefully improved).
The thought of semi-encouraging comments posted by my generous friends asking me to check my grammar, the spellings, the content of the post has kept me off till tonight. But this trite thought had to be overcome so I devoured good 10-15 poorly written blogs to gain confidence and here I am. What if they still snicker?
With some help from Harsh (he reads my extraordinary stories and he likes them) and Google, I picked up the nattiest of the template, tweaked it a bit, threw some colours added some neat snazzy gadgets to attract the casual browser (I learned this selling art from my grandfather who while packing apples for the market ensure the best were laid out on the top).
As it took shape, I grew hungry - I wanted it to be indexed immediately in Google and be searched by millions. For a minute I even though of AdSense - it made sense to make money on hits.
I made umpteen attempts to search my blog in Google but the result was zilch. Harsh consoled me to keep heart and pray that the Google crawlers creep in all over my blog soon, until then I can keep posting my stuff (and suffer - he didn't say that) with the though that not too many are suffering from the barrage of my semi-humorous posts (was he thinking aloud). This dashed the idea of AdSense, it didn't make any sense. I would question him on the use of the word 'semi-humorous'.
I think I have arrived.
