The truth about my blog…

Every time I receive a complement saying that my blog is good or my thoughts are amazing, I open it immediately and feel happy to the maximum I can. I feel proud of it. As my signature says, it is my legacy which is worthier than many millions.


If any person comments here with a complete different opinion to the one I expressed in my post, you never believe, that haunts me like anything until I re-think about it and understand his/her perspective.


If someone does loose-comments, I mean, who can not understand my feelings behind writing the posts and simply says “you write bla bla bla…”, I always want to cry loudly and want to say “Shut-up”.


Our culture says “give respect and take respect”, I’m not sure how much it holds well in this generation, in which people would love to take respect, but never want to respect others' feelings. Neither they can understand others, nor can they keep quiet!!


I bet you can never imagine how much I take my blog to my heart. I always believe that its worth taking too. Because it consists me in the form of my thoughts, my actions and myself completely. I agree, some things are easy to be said than to be followed; I too say something in one post, but I may fail to follow the same in another real situation of my life. After all, I’m also a human being with all right and wrong in me. No regrets.


Now, let me tell you, it hurts me the most, when people ask me if I copy some lines from any book/site etc. In one angle I take it as a complement, because they asked it since it was unbelievable for them; may be, it was such a good one. But in the other angle, it was completely out of less-sportive attitude. I can identify the people who ask it in positive manner and who does it in negative line; such stunning questions form very mixed feelings in my heart.


I declare, whenever I copy something or I want to mention something of any other writer, I clearly say it in PS or in some portion of my post. Similar to what I hate when people copy my lines without reference, I never love myself copying someone’s without mentioning them. I confess that I did one such mistake in one of my posts in very earlier ones of my blog posts. I was not mature enough then. I’m sorry for that. But later on, I never ever did so, and I will never do it again, I bet my life on it.


I can write volumes on this subject. But better I stop saying any more, because, the best ever complement I’ve got is “I write less and convey more”. I hope I did justify the same here.


So, finally, the truth about my blog is my blog itself. I proudly say, it is my sweetheart and it is one out of those I take to my heart. I treasure it the most.


Recently I’ve come to know that many of my good old friends started reading my blog. Some out of those are my very good friends too. I take this as an opportunity to thank one and all for being here faithfully.


I’d love to thanks all of my regular readers. You are the real inspiration. I’d love to have your continuous support throughout.


PS: I know, even after saying this much I can not clear some doubts of people. Never mind. I have said all these as I feel like saying it, but not with an intention to change someone’s opinion about me. It is up to the individual who is disciplined enough to accept me as I am.

Just a curious question Is it necessary we should be accepted by somebody ??

welcome to my world of poetry said...

Hi. I started writing my blog when I lived in Spain 3/4 years ago, I wrote my poems and for a year not one comment but I wrote because I could put my most inner feelings down on paper, things I couldn't talk to anyone about. I did it for me not for anyone else.
Then I got a comment everytime I wrote from the same person and that's how I began.
We all have to take critique at times in life and writing is no exception, sometimes it makes one look at their work fron another perspective, or it can really hurt that someone can not like what you have written. I have always found your post excellent, I always tell the truth.Carry on regardless what some may or maynot think after all it is only their opinion there are many more who do think very highly of you.

Good luck
Yvonne,

A good one.
First time here.
Earlier I used to just write up something and send it to all my special friends / relatives by mail.
Many had suggested that I should start blogging, an activity I postponed.
Finally when I started doing it I realized how powerful it can be. Now people have started approaching me to write about their product/website for which they were ready to pay me (have done three so far)
So all in all blogging is a good activity I must say.

The Idle Brain said...

The first thing u (&I) should learn is not to expect. Rather than trying to inject some seriousness into ur readers, learn to welcome every perspective & accept it.

Oh.. I got preachy again!

The Idle Brain said...

FYI.. you are lucky to have a variety of readers and perspectives.. Cherish it.

Value a different perspective/ criticism more than a compliment. If your reader posted an opinion, that means he/she pondered over your perspective and took time to give his/her. Thats the best anyone can give. It definitely means more than saying 'wow / ur blog is cool etc..' (which is not very different from a vague comment)

To me a mere compliment is as good as a vague comment except that it makes me feel good. What say?

The Idle Brain said...

Read the comments I got on my latest post and tell me how u would have reacted to them.

Ria said...

Dont bother abt such ppl dear coz they really dont matter. :) So jus b urself wihtout bothering for such ppl. U write beautifully!

The Holy Lama said...

I just know that your posts always widen the perspective. I like your blog. And remember there is no cure for jealousy or baldness - so we just let people with these to co exist with us.

sleeping beauty said...

Dear Pramoda,

I think blog is suppose to write what you feel like writing and express your emotions in your blog that sometime you can't express or tell in person. Readers of the blog is suppose to understand and respect that prospective. Sometime when people don't respect or don't understand the writing point of your view, it does hurt but try to learn from that and do your best in next writing and move forward.

I love your blog and i love to have you around me. I admire what you write and love reading it and enjoy every bit of it.

God Bless
Love
Sabi Sunshine

Now...I am one of those who thought that those amazing lines you wrote were that of some great scholar! Don't get me wrong, it's a compliment. You are the scholar in question here. :) If anyone thought you were copying, then it's just because it was too good to be true.

Scribbling Girl said...

yeah, i believe that.. if we have to prgress with social life, we have to accept people as they are and further to that everyone wants to be accepted fr what they are..

of course, it does not end life when someone doesnt accept us, but fr a better relations, it is required. i feel this...
