Blog about a Blog

Took the tag from Fleiger

Are you happy/satisfied with your blog with it's content and look?

Looks – Yes.. I like a simple, clean look..
Content – More or less yes.. would like to know from others on areas where I can improve.

Does your family know about your blog?


Do you feel embarrassed to let your friends know about your blog or you just consider it as a private thing?
Oh!!! I put a mail to all my friends, inviting comments and their thoughts, whenever I publish a new post.

Did blogs cause positive changes in your thoughts?
Some times Yes!!
e.g blogs like The year that Was and Inquilab Zindabad

Do you only open the blogs of those who comment on your blog or you love to go and discover more by yourself?
People who visit me are the most visited. I like to explore, if I have time on my side.

What does visitors counter mean to you? Do you care about putting it in your blog?
I DO!!! Would love to have the world converging here and share their ideas/thoughts

Did you try to imagine your fellow bloggers and give them real pictures?
Most of the fellow bloggers are my friends so no need for imagination. I try to in case of others…
As regards my image – the image link is same as the orkut one.. so I am there on my blog!!

Admit. Do you think there is a real benefit for blogging?
Oh yes ofcourse!! Some instances of blogging helping people was witnessed during post-mumbai blasts craziness… also recently read on Mridula’s blog – how blogs can be really useful… apart from this they also tend to propagate a thought, an idea… which if on a large scale has power to bring revolutions…

Do you think that bloggers society is isolated from real world or interacts with events?
The society is very much a part of the society and everyday events are the biggest influence on what people write.

Does criticism annoying you or do you feel it's a normal thing?
Its not a normal thing – it is a very good thing as it helps you know ur weakness and improve on it..

Do you fear of some political blogs and avoid them?
It’s the opposite. I tend to read other’s political views.. As it is always better to know all aspects before forming an opinion yourself. Though it does not happens always.. but that’s what I try..

Did you get shocked by the arrest of some bloggers?
I have not heard anyone getting arrested… but if they are. I assume they must be misusing the power called Blogs

Did you think about what will happen to your blog after you die?
I really liked the idea of a epitaph blog suggested by Fleiger. May be I will also do the same..sorry Fleiger.. violating the copyrights here!!!

What do you like to hear? What's the song you like to put its link in your blog?
Depends on Mood really.. Usually blogging is done at night when u tend to hear slow, soulful songs…but it can be anything.. from Nirvana to Hariharan to Jagjit singh to Ghulam Ali to Gurdass mann to Shaan.

Five bloggers to be the next "victims"?
Anyone and Everyone!!!
(Cuckoo has taken an anticipatory bail.. So this accused is excused)

Hey SiD,
Very nicely written. And you wrote almost all those things what I would have written (mere muh ki baat cheen lee) had I attempted the tag now including giving Mridula's example. I know you went to her blog from mine. ;)

Thanks Fleiger for giving us brilliant idea of epitaph. Me too writing one :D, let me grow a little more.

Ha Ha..@anticipatory bail. My only excuse was that I am very new in blogworld and won't be doing justice to this tag if I attempt it prematurely though I could have attempted it the day Fleiger asked me to. But I think I'll do it very soon. :))

Once again, nicely put.

P.S. I thank all those who go to my blog from here. :)) But pls leave a comment there if you can. It'll help me in improving. And SiD, a big thanks to you as well for blogrolling me!!

SiD said...

@cuckoo... I return the thanks with a capital THANKS as u hv blogrolled me too... ;)
ya. went to Mridula's blog from urs... actually I would love to do what she does - Travel and Write about it.. along with Photography... the 3 coolest things rolled into One!! WOW!!

Heyy, now again don't snatch my Dil ki baat.

I already have 3 blogs to my credit (2 are invisible to the world at present) - one exclusively reserved for my travel things. It's just that not getting enough time to put things together. Otherwise, why do you think I have linked her to my blog? You can check in one of my comments on Mridula's blog if you think I'm bluffing.

I love traveling too. Check my profile if you havn't done so. :)

SiD said...

arreyy.. i believe you yaar.. why wud i think u r bluffing...
and invisible blogs.. umm... make it public maa'am. so we can also know where all u have travelled..
vaise its an intersting idea.. i have seen almost all of india... i can comment on many cities...
once wrote about a trekking trip near mysore.. it went on to be a 10 page(MS-WORD) documentary!! :)

Cuckoo said...

arre, both are khaali at the moment, just the name. But I have a fair idea of what all to put there. Will take sometime, maybe after december.
Puleeese, don't steal my ideas or is it that you can read my mind? :P. Ufff, I should not have told you anything.

Waise, go ahead and create the magic. :D I'll be the first one to link you again. All the Best!!

Sania has just won the doubles final.

SiD said...

no no.. will not churayofy ur idea.. being in Software I have all respect for Intellectual rights... :D
And whats there in December... arrey start it yaar..
"kal kare so aaj kar.. aaj kare so ab"

and ya thank god she has won atlast!!
Hingis gave her a good thrashing in the singles.. vaise this blog is also on cards... Popularity of underachiever but glamorous Sania vs that of Leander Paes(who has done much much more)..

Cuckoo said...

Arre, what's this? Only I'm commenting here? No one else reads your blog kya? What happened to ever flying Fleiger?

Ha Ha.. mere blog pe comments nahi..samajh mein aata hai...perhaps because of Anonymous visitor, pls give urself a name .. they get scared. :P

Y'day I had heavy traffic..48 ppl came to my site but comments? one newcomer and Fleiger, the evil laugh.

SiD said...

Why no ones commenting here!! - i guess due to week end.. most of the visitors(who comment here) come on week days from Office..

48 pple!! thats some Traffic to get in a day.. 2 people per hour.. vaise u didnt tell me how u ca me to know that ur visitors from Infosys.. til now i havent seen google analytics show such kind of information....

KT said...

hmm interviewing oneself!!! ....
cool idea hai ..

waise another interesting to me was epitaph.. will put it up for sure... but can't commit when!!

Anonymous said...

Very sorry sid, Google Reader is playing up, so I am not notified when somebody updates the blog...

Anyways, nicely done. Much more seriously done actually, as usual... Did this tag help in any way?

And about copyrights, as my copyright notice mentions, you can copy anything as long as it is attributed ;)

Cuckoo said...

It won't be fair to tell here I guess. What if they get panicky?

Anonymous said...

Google Analytics gives network locations... :)

SiD said...

@Kt: kya jaldi hai yaar... u have ATLEAST 50 years to write it.. plenty of time i hope ;)

@cuckoo: yes.. that wud drive away visitors from here too ;)

but still i wud like to know..
haven't u heard the kahavat: "gyan bantane se badta hai"... so badhao yaar..

@fleiger: bhai saa'ab whats there to say sorry about.!!!
and google tells the loaction - but i guess it doesnt tell that access was done from Hosur Road or Hootaglli.. ;)

Cuckoo said...

Replied to ur query on someone else's blog.. Go & find out.

Cuckoo said...

BTW, the traffic has reduced already. Only 3 visitors from INFY B'lore in these 2 days. :((
And Hosur Road to suna hai, what's Hootaglli?? Again some kannada ****alli name?

Anonymous said...

@Cuckoo: Hootagalli is the address of Dear ol Infy in Dear Ol' Mysore....

@Sid: all infy traffic is coming from Banglore. Do they route the network like that?

SiD said...

@cuckoo: got the reply in Some one elses blog..thanks.. but guess have to explore further.. what i get in the main graphs is the city names only :(

@fleiger: no .. i dont think they route it all from bangi... i have some 'spots' saying mysore also...

Anonymous said...

I only get Infy-banglore... no other-infy, though I have some "spots" around your current location.

And apparently, on many stat-counters, my location is not recorded, though visit is.

SiD said...

Strange.. i only get the "spot" as Bangalore not infy bangalore...

and ya - i am also not getting my city as Chandigarh.. some strange places around chandigarh are coming..

Anonymous said...

Are you sure you are in Chandigarh? Stat-counters don't lie you know... So, chakkar kya hai? ;)

SiD said...

ya I am pretty well in chandigarh.. and now u know that stats Do lie...
google is no god after all !!!
i need to borrow some of your evil laugh here...
