The Blogger Bug!

Now I have been blogging for a little over two months and im not the most prolific or intellectually stimualting blogger but together with my work and my love for blogging I'm afraid im going to turn into my friend here ---------------------------->
Sorry if it's abit gory but its really funny and true to the situation that most people who are studying or working find themselves in.I shall call him Bob, Hello Bob

I haven't blogged in more than a week due to my increasing workload and im already getting tremors! Now this may be an indication of my possible addiction to blogging or it may be a symptom of Parkinson's Disease, but the thrill of a new post, the enticipation of people commenting on my thoughts and the general freedom of voicing my opinion on a world wide forum makes having a blog worth it. Have I become a blog junkie or a blog extremist? What exactly am I?

Many of my friends wonder why in the blue hell do I blog? Why do I waste my time writing about things that most people don't give a damn about and only a handful read? I'll tell you why, its because In my opinion blogging is a theraputic experience which I throughly enjoy. Every single day during my studies I'm compelled to write in a formal and ordered way, and trust me I'm not very far away from Bob's heroics with the keyboard (well not exactly like that and im sure you get the point) but blogging gives me the authority to ramble about anything, whether it be coherent or not (well I hope its coherent). Blogging helps me relax, it calms the storm in my mind and gives me the ability to express myself on a platform which is global. Ofcourse I also relax through movies, music, games and going out with friends but sometimes I just have to write. Now this is by no way a paid for by Blogger post trying to indoctrinate people into using blogger in order to relax and no im not some yaahoo/hippie who has had abit of a bad week and is now advocating the virtues of blogology.

What do I intend to acomplish with ramblings? absolutely nothing, as far as im concern its my subjective opinion that has been tainted by my lifes experiences and my perpetual cynicism. If you don't agree with me there will be people who do, thats the beauty of writing there is always different opinions on the subject. If I offend, inspire or downright kill people through bad grammar and boring discourse than so be it whether it be through implication or fact.

People like me, and bob depending on how serious there keyboard injuries are will continue to expand the blog universe with useful tips and personal stories. The blogger bug has bitten me and I have a serious case of blogotitis (corny? yes I know) which I hope will continue for a while to come or atleast until PS3 comes out.

omg!! i love the gif. I'm such a freak, I keep watching it trying to predict when the blood's gonna come, then when the eyeballs are gonna pop...

Very pertinent points. I agree, blogging's a very cool way of self expression.

Keep it up, you're worth sparing a thought to *pun*

I concur, blogging is soothing, gives you a chance to vent all the anger, frustration etc to people that may not know you personally, but know you at a more intimate level through your blogging, since you can be truly honest in all that you discuss, and not be bothered whether anyone (friend or foe) will be offended if you are less than tactful in your discussions.

oh my. that reminds me so much of me... excpet the blood ofcourse. And Saaleha's right... very hostel.

But the Blog Bug has far greater consequences within than without. we Write for ourselves more than we write for others... the thing to remember is that as soon as we lose sight of this fact, the game islost becuase it is far too easy to fall prey to untruth and bigotry when trying to write for somebody else other than yourself.

The nature of the beast I guess, and coming from JAmal badawi's Talk last night... This is the Blogger's greatest Jihad.

As in life... be true to yourself.

Wasalaam.

5.Name sounds Italian.
6.you SUPPOSE his name is?
7. I'm trying to get to 10 and now I'm stuck, Croatia's currency's almost the same value as ours, come and visit. You can bring a search party.
8.Your search - giacomo bonevara - did not match any documents. <---I did it for you.
9. I think you should move on with your life
10.That's close to the most glorious comment I've read on a blog, ever.

^^^ sorry about that, apparently I'm the only one that finds it funny at the moment...so i dunno..

saaleha said...

lol queen_lestat. i was gonna pop em an email and ask if they know Jan Evancovich, the dashing blue-eyed croat who stole my heart and life's savings.

lana&paola said...
