Life, Decisions and Blogging

Those of you who’ve been visiting this blog for the past week might’ve noticed a sharp increase in my posting frequency – to be more precise, I’ve been blogging, daily for the past four days, straight! 😛

Not because I’m jobless, actually I’m everything but jobless! I’ve got lab exams right now – yet, I took some time out of my busy schedule and blogged. 🙂 Not because I’m neglecting studies or anything – I’ve made a landmark decision about my life.

For a while now, I was going through a Quarter Life crisis – which is at its peak, right now. For everything I did, for everywhere I turned, some problem or other would pounce upon me, like a vicious and hungry tigress attacking its prey. I’ve become masochistic about life’s problems – I’ve almost begun to enjoy, while basking in this multitude of issues posed by life. By now, I’ve been embroiled in (almost) all sorts of problems a teenager could get himself into- oops forgot, I ceased to exist as a teen as I turned 20 a year back! 😛

And amid all this, I made an amazing self-discovery, I found my true love, my calling!

You guessed that right, I’ve chosen the red pill again – My sojourn from dreams to reality has got a whole new meaning now, that I’m a PRO-blogger!

Those of you who know me personally and bother to read my tags might’ve already got the hint not-so-long-ago. But for others, I’m just making it official. And don’t get ideas about the ‘PRO’ prefix – no, I’m not professional yet, I haven’t made HUGE amounts of money like Amit Aggarwal, I haven’t even made a single authoritative post, like Arun. Yet, I have my moments of fame. I did take a session on blogging at FOSSMeet, NIT Calicut, on invitation! I’m unofficially the CTO of a budding Quiz Blog, and I’ve even hosted a quiz to boot! 🙂

And as a first step towards my goal, I’m goanna start blogging, daily.

A huge thank you, to all my readers/commenters who’ve been with me through thick and thin, commenting even in the worst of posts and lifting my feeble morale. A hug and a kiss to all of you!! 😀

If you find visiting everyday a tad hard,you may  get updates hot-delivered to your mailbox! 🙂

    Hey,

    That was an awesome decision. Why don't you make a list of goals for the next year an publish it?

    I made one last December and am working to meet it. When goals go public you got to meet it anyway. You will feel inspired to write 🙂

    Will see you daily then – Added you to my daily tracking blogs list!

    Two more things –

    1. The twit this button on the Sociable plugin no longer works, some bug exists. Just replace twit this button with FriendFeed button in Sociable Settings.

    2. Am not sure if you took the message on first comment from my post :D, its cool anyway 🙂

    @ Arun:

    Wowowow!! The true PRO BLOGGER has commented in my blog!! HONOURED!! 😀

    I've actually made a private (read: non publishable) set of goals. Nothing secretive, but I thought I'd start working on them first and then make it public. I've read your goals thing. 🙂 And I get that, will do in a couple of months once the framework is ready!

    And yeah, thanks buddy. Corrected it! Added a new button now. 🙂

    I owe you a big thanks. Providing fodder for my literature deprived soul- that is the best thing you could have done.
