I have been mulling over it for a while now. Secrets. Blogger secrets.
It has been a little over six years now since I first found space in this world. The so called ‘blogosphere’. It is very much a sphere trust me, trying to find an end or corner to it is almost an impossible task 🙂
And obviously I have navigated myself pretty well given I am on fancy talking terms with quite a few. I am welcome to join any Facebook group and most people would either dismiss me as a nobody or praise me for a little something here and there. No abuses shall follow. Guaranteed.
Or I am over committing here?
Quietly though from behind curtains I have all along been making notes. Secretly. Giggling at a few social media exchanges, raising an eyebrow over some posts and more importantly running my ass off seeing a brewing something.
Running a nine to five job as an employee or homemaker, bloggers dig their skulls again to blog. So basically no blogger is a part time worker, he or she is actually an over timed one.
But tonight we are discussing, blogger secrets. If there are any to be openly discussed here 😀
To begin with, all bloggers have either written a manuscript, writing one or planning to write one. You will find very rarely any one of them saying- I am here to blog, there is no closet publishing dream. Whatsoever.
At any given time a blogger is a part of at least ten Facebook groups. No kidding.
They have a thing for first time bad impressions. Some people and blogs, bloggers somehow inevitably dislike. I know I have! There are a few I would never even accidentally read. Enuff said! 😀
There are blogging groups. There are writing groups. There are city specific groups. And then there are gossip circles. And some ‘bloggers’ are still calling themselves ‘bloggers’ because they are the ‘we know they know what we know’ conversationalists. Last time their blog was updated was when Manmohan Singh was seen speaking.
Now something about these chirpy female bloggers. These are the same girls who would have never even nodded their head in acknowledgement to their so called male peers in college but today open their arms wide, readily accepting FB requests and ensuing upon giggling conversations with quite a few. All for a like, share and comment! 😀
And let no blogger fool you into believing that they have too high a set of ideals to harbor dreams of creating viral content. All of us looking for our ‘Kolaveri D’ moment 😀
Blogging on the whole has been a rollercoaster ride for me. I agree. I have seen multiple phases and waves of blogging, bloggers. And somehow managed to find my sacred space here.
Secret to my passion for blogging is finding meaning in the chaos i.e blogosphere. Sometimes that meaning comes through fellow bloggers and sometimes through their content. And in one of those rare moments through an honest reader only here to read and understand me.
Write a post for us on the prompt ‘What is your secret’ add in the linky below and yes don’t forget to read others 🙂
