Centennial

This is my hundredth post on this blog and coincidentally, it's exactly one year since my first post. And what a year it's been! I've come a long way; from one blog and no readers, to 2 blogs, a domain name, a website and no readers! How things have changed! I've learnt much ( a fair bit of it the hard way ) and I've done much and met some very interesting people through their blogs.

And the more blogs I visit, the more I realize that my posts read like a series of essays! I can't help it though. You can blame the board exams for instilling the skill of creating an introduction, body and conclusion for virtually any subject and embedding the habit so deeply that now I'm unable to turn out anything else except for dry, straight-to-the-point articles.

And from the label count, it seems that a majority of them are about me ( Hey! You say self-obsessed, I say introspective ), but isn't that one of the many purposes of a blog? To help you sort out your thoughts and get to know yourself better? That was my intention when I started out, anyway.

I'm considering posting on short, random topics from now on. Stuff that comes into my head but about which I don't necessarily have much to say. Let's see how that works out. See you at the bicentennial post

Mona, I give up! I just cannot get you to stop with the compliments! Guess I'll just have to accept them graciously henceforth :D

Thank you for all the kind words :)

And yes, it's true, I'm wallflower. I hate the limelight and I hate having to break my routine :)

MONA said...

NGAC.. I understand EXACTLY how you feel.Limelight makes mer uncomfortable too, But hey, when you get friends, you feel so nice about it! So i guess that sort of covers up.Just stick to your ground.

& good thing that you dont break up your 'routine'. That helps building up dicipline in life, so it has its postive side.& then automatically comes dedication exploration & execution.That is the stage which becomes the determining factor in our lives.I am so glad you feel it while you are still so young. Most ppl of your age are so much still on cloud nine that they fail to see the reality & its needs.

& yes..Happy Friendship Day :)

You have at least two readers, so let's see, 0/2 = Infinity. That's a heck of an increase, percentage-wise. From my own counters, comparing the different IPs, to the number of commenters, you probably have somewhere between 4x-8x that many actual readers.

BTW. Congratulations on the Century post. I still haven't got there yet. You'd think that as long as I've had mine, I would have, but its only 62 so far.

Charles, you always have a much better way of looking at things :D

About the 4x-8x, most of them are probably my friends, so that doesn't really count. But it's a start :)

Ah, there's a difference between our posts you see. You're striving for quality, I'm going for quantity ( not really but it sure seems that way! )!

Shooflye said...

Awwwwwww come on! You have atleast ONE reader! Or didja forget me you sob! :D

no.good.at.coding said...

@Shooflye: Nah, I didn't forget :) But I wasn't sure if you were still reading or not.

You seemed to have disappeared off the face of the blogosphere.

Shooflye said...

We can only access net from the comps in the lib here, not our own pcs. I don't even have an id yet. par aaj tak mil jaayega. :D
