I’m having a bit of a blogging personality crisis. Well, it isn’t as serious as it sounds for, let’s be honest, I haven’t been serious about blogging for quite a while. It doesn’t nag me, or excite me as it used to. And it’s not because I’ve grown out of it. I just don’t know what more I can do with it. Continue reading “Of Blogging Personalities”
How To Be A Bad Blogger
1. Do not reply to comments. Who has the time? You already said what you had to say. And they’re asking for more? Why don’t they just like and share like normal people do?
2. Participate in the community as little as possible. Yeah, you need to Continue reading “Of Bad Blogging”
First I thought it was a passing phase and out of nowhere, I found myself singing Daniel Powter. Then, a day turned into a few days. On Saturday I called it a “bad week”, as I shed a few embarrassing and uncharacteristic tears in public transport. Today, it’s ten days. Like any bad meteorologist, I hope my prediction is false when I say, “Seems like Hurricane Crapathy will be with us for a fortnight.”
To be honest, I don’t know what crapathy means exactly. I first learnt about it through Continue reading “Crapathy”
I want to try something new. I’m thinking of calling it Amrita’s ‘Wednesday Words of Wisdom’. These wouldn’t be rehashing some trite motivational quotes. No, Messieurs et Mesdames et Mesdemoiselles. These will be the hard-earned truth, laid brutally on your casual reading plate. Today’s words are: Never ask anybody what they think of you. Continue reading “Book Review: A Horse Walks Into A Bar”
I wanted to call this Of Blogging and Commerce, or The Commercial Side of Blogging, or to be more specific, The Commercial Side of Blogging (Or Lack Of). I could have called it Making Money By Blogging, but that would be too click-baity. And obviously, inaccurate.
It’s my three-year blog anniversary this week. Continue reading “Of Blogging and Money”
I like to do these updates when I hit milestones, just to look back, review and assess how things are going for my blog. Usually, it is when it hits a certain number of followers (it, the blog, not myself, for I would run very, very fast if that were the case), is a blogiversary, Continue reading “Of Blog Updates”
‘Cause I gotta have faith. – George Michael
Hello, I hope everybody is enjoying the holidays. Boy, do we need to.
Like everybody else, 2016 has been a crock of s*** for me. I won’t reiterate the reasons why because a) I don’t want to bring you down in case you’re in a good mood and b) because I don’t want to be in competition with Continue reading “Of Faith”
I’ve been meaning to have a blog party for forever. It won’t be your drink-and-decorations kind of affair. It won’t even contain the only two reasons why I go to a party: food and dancing. But, it is a rather communal affair often hosted by bloggers, where they ask fellow bloggers to plug their blogs so that Continue reading “Of Blogging Community”
I’ve got the blues since yesterday. I seem to be redefining the art of doing nothing now, because it should be something pleasant, creative and calorific. Not me, who has built a cosy corner for herself on self-loathing, and a general resignation towards the state of the world. And not eating while doing it. Continue reading “Of Having The Blues”
Like most consistent bloggers, I feel I should post something on Monday. It’s the day when most people turn up to do this blogging thing, though why pick the busiest day of the week is a question I still haven’t found the answer to. Maybe because it’s ‘business’ and though Continue reading “Real Time Ramble: I Don’t Like Mondays”
