Ah!! well.. if you are wondering what took me so long in posting?? My blog has recently celebrated its first birthday, and i was busy arranging the party. The cake, candles, disco lights, DJ( everyone likes to dance..) inviting all its fellow blogs( not 2 forget the cute female blog, tht it has been eying for long), and co-ordinating the various events tht go with a party. After all, its my blogs first birthday!! I still remember that hot sunny afternoon of jun 2nd, 2005. I was enjoing the holidays, and mom asked me to accompany her to my cousins place. Most of my cousins are very elderly to me, with many of them being married too, and their kids being just about 5 years younger to me..so, instead of reffering them as cousins i prefer to address them with the tag chacha which irks them, as that makes them feel to be quite elderly. I have still not understood this over-zealous attitude of middle aged people to conceal their actual age??
Neways, coming to the history of the blog.That afternoon i just dropped my mom at my cousin's, with a promise of returning back after some time, to pick her back. In the meantime, to kill time, i logged in into a sify iway, and there started this blog. The first post was diectly copy-pasted from a mail forward, as my aunt was getting furious that i come to her place immediately. Why the topic of love in the first post?? Since LOVE is immortal, and i wanted my blog to be like that.( This is a different way of saying that i love the topic :-D)
Initially, the frequency of posts was quite irregular, but after i got my broad-band connection, i got more regular or was rather addicted (By the way, BSNL is resposnible for my temporary aloofness from the internet community, as my phone went dead in the past week). Gradually the addictiveness reduced, and these days i m hooked to ORKUT. A wonderful place, especially for not-so-gud-looking guys like me. I have found a host of ppl there, many of my old classmates, my previous neighbour, my friend's ex-GF, and i hope in the near future i find my future GF. Google surely controls the way v live!! HAIL GOOGLE!!!
One tendency i have noticed among bloggers, as they spend time here is their general pattern of evolution. First it is a plain blog, with a simple template. Then the updates of personal profile is done very thoughtfully, as he realizes that the cute crush in college is a regular to his blog, and no stone is left unturned to attract her. Trust me, its the general case, and not mine :-
Then one feels the need to link his favourite websites so that the world comes to know about them, and therby give free publicity to the sites. Then one realizes the need to earn money from this venture, and once again GOOGLE namah! comes to the rescue in the form of google adsense( indirect hint : I get my money from ur clicks at the ad..although, it has not reached the mandatory 100$ cut-off yet )
After the furnishing, the template of the blog is played with, and all kinds of additional unnecessary crap is placed on the index page, thereby cluttering it. and finally one feels proud that he has succesfully blogged for so much time!!!( one year is a gud period) and as one goes through the old p
It is a big day for my blog for two reasons - one, it has become one year old. and second, the counter has registered 1000 hits. Maybe it has taken lots of time in reaching that figure, but considering my initial days of managing the blog which were comparable to the officials who managed( or mis-managed) ENRON, or the UPA governments management of the reservation issue, the number of hits doesen't seem to be surprising.
Now coming out of this blog frenzy, let me speak about better things in life.
In the last week of may, we have formed, or rather strengthened, the vizag wing of YOUTH FOR EQUALITY, and various plans were also devised at the meeting on 28th. V even started plannig a strategy for a rally in protest to the reservation issue. All that has been nullified by the supreme court's order :( Nevertheless the blog ( http://vyfe.blogspot.com ) created in this endeavour reamins, and it would hopefully be active. and finally, LET MERIT PREVAIL...
