Eleven blogs, she said. You have eleven blogs that you hardly update.
Half a minute before, I was being smart and asking for a challenge. The world perhaps had a lot less to offer to challenge me, I said.
I suspect, she reads Lorelle On WordPress.
These blogging challenges are published weekly and are an attempt to kick your blogging ass. They serve to challenge your thinking and efforts in blogging and blog writing. To participate, start challenging yourself now. Today. Go for it. [Via Lorelle’s Blog Challenge]
Serves me right.
I can hardly regularly update a single blog, leave alone eleven. But then, one of the blogs is really a book in the binding (sounds better than book in the making). One blog is in Hindi and another one is in Marathi. I haven’t yet got used to the Devnagari input on a Mac. She allowed the concession. Nine blogs. (I know, the maths doesn’t add up, I’ll explain that later) I had to update nine blogs in a day. I have 39 minutes before I upload this post to meet this challenge that I took up.
The first feeling was of emptiness. Still, I mused about how kids have a better chance of living their lives, if they express well. But then does anything that we do, matter, given the One World Governance theory?
And here I am six minutes before deadline. Delivered.
It is one thing to start blogs, yet another to keep them alive and nurture them. Blogs, as electronic services (and when they are free), don’t mean a lot to most people. To me, they do. I just needed someone to kick my blogging-ass. The question was very simple. Who would do it? Definitely not someone who takes blogging lightly.
I have nearly been bullied into doing this – in a nice way. I have been called that once, but now, I just smile at that “accusation”. I don’t do that anymore.
We will have to realise, some day that we have friends. Just. Not blog-friends or chat-friends or work-friends or building-friends.
PS: About the maths. I actually have 16 blogs. Two of them are co-authored. Discount them. Leaves 14. She didn’t know about the three new ones. I have actually updated 10 blogs in a day, after the three concessions.
