< 100TH POST >

This is my 100th blog post.
I thought I would dedicate this post to my blog itself. I believe that blogs do have feelings, and I seriously don't want to hurt the feelings of my blog by not posting a blog post for it.
I just want to go back to that time when I started blogging. I will tell you the story about its evolution.
____________________

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to April 2nd 2008.This was when I started the blogging thingy. Like everything any action needed a motive or what you call stimuli.

I have some friends (Vampy, Sanjog, Jaycee), these people already had blogs then. I asked the Sri Sri Mahabloggi Sanjog. He woke up from his deep meditation, and said in a soft voice.(Font size 10, Not Bold)

"People write blog because they provide their frustrated creator with the delusional outlet of being a published author, sort of like how the prison warden lets the psychotic inmate scribble "poetry" on the cell wall so doesn't beat his bunk mate with a toilet seat."

These words of wisdom, washed away my ignorance about blogging and opened the Star gate to eternal life.(Life online is eternal, till server crashes and last mirror dies).

Before, even I started writing my first blog post, I showed all the awesome symptoms of a professional writer. Yes!! "Writer's block". I didn't know what to write about. Then I knew that, I am going to get better in it.

Diabolical Thoughts, that's what I christened my blog. Too much games with 8 legged creatures will bend your thoughts in a diabolical way. (Did I tell you, once I tried to shoot a fly on my screen with a gun, while I was playing game, Only to realize later that the fly belonged to the real world,on this side of the screen.)

Writing is like playing Jigsaw puzzle with words.( I hate puzzle games altogether!So...). We have to pick the right words, move it around, till it gives out the picture that you want to portray to the world.
I started off, my blogging, writing in a cynical style. It started off well, (At-least for me)cuz it complemented well, with the world.

Wrote a few more blog posts in that frequency.

That was when my spectacles broke.That incident changed it all. (I told you everything needs a stimuli). I narrated that incident, about me visiting the doctor, paralleling events with Murphy's laws.
Hmm...What can I say, it was according to the stats on comments, well received.

From that point onwards, I made sure that I include a tint of humor in all blog posts. Mostly, it was events from my life. The school days, conversations happening between me and buddies. Blogging was simple.

I did run into that 'Writer's block many times. Most of the time it was not because of lack of ideas. It was because of a much more important factor, laziness or lack of time.
I really didn't want to make my blog kinda into 'political activism' . Views on politics is that everyone has one,and its better, not to probe both.(Hope you got my drift). So kept that segment out of my blog.
I wrote , stuffs on human mind and emotions, the basic ingredient behind all good things and major fuck-ups.


I turned my coffee breaks and idle times to find topics to blog about. Forum mall, was one spot where I used to get 'clues' to blog on. Many humans in one place. What else do you need. All I need was to observe people.Every individual has a story to tell. It's fun observing people. Not all ended up on my blog, but some did.

My buddies were another source for blog posts. Well!! God makes them all so insane and unique.Most of them live way down the food chain, according to me. (Input evil laugh here).With friends like this, who needs TV?

During the process of my blog life, I have contributed many new words and similey's to the world.(*sniff*,sniff). There's this dictionary I made, which gives a whole new meaning to FUBK.

Most of you who knows me, know that, I don't have writer's block but rhymer's block. At one time(not in band camp), me and my buddy wrote a RAP.(Raped Englissss).

Once, I was comfortable with my blog posts and my readers, I thought I would reveal myself to the world. I wrote, not only about my 'FIRST LOVE', but also a weird conversation with my cousin.

Blogs, they are our personal feelings, and I wrote a letter to my best friend. This could be the only blog post which is directed at a single person.

Come December, and I have increased the frequency of my blogging. A blog a day. Cool!! Alive, I am.

2 years into blogging, never ever felt bored about this, because of all the encouragement and inspiration YOU, people showered on me as comments and as visits. I really don't want to name anyone as special, because every one is special and each time a different person, with a different comment inspires me for the next blog post.

O great Sorcerator, why be so humble?

To get the facts right, you have been blogging since 2008 and I have been blogging since June 2009.

Anyways, the fact is, you had it in you, and you are reaping the benefits.

Oh, such a benevolent nature! you are an astute blogger, and we are the blessed derelicts.

Let's put a smile on your face:

Google: words that start with p,b

Later say:
AWESHOME
