Today, I got a mail from a frequent reader of my blog – a person whom I respect a lot, and whose opinions I always take into serious consideration.
The tone of his (alright, it’s a HE, all you nosey parkers! 😛 ) voice didn’t have the friendly and brotherly warmth, this time. There was a subtle note of anger juxtaposed with a suitable sense of derision – and all his words were directed at just one point – the plummeting quality of content in my blog.
Alright, I can argue that this is my blog, and I can write whatever I like without considering my readers – but, that’s the last thing I’d EVER do! Because, readers are my motivation! I’d die without comments 🙂 And that’s exactly what keeps fuelling my passion to write more and more…
Yet, in the light of my dismal credit rating, I had to take some dire measures and work against my . In a way, I sold myself, my imagination, my words – for money (in United States’ Dollars, nonetheless). My mind flooded with remorse, for every such non-passionate action of mine here, my heart bled. I tried to cover up, but in vain.
And his mail was the last nail in the coffin.
I request all of you with folded arms and tears in my eyes, to bare with me. No, I can’t guarantee a total full stop to the kind of crap I’ve been sh!tting here, but I promise you – sunny days aren’t far away. The strongest arrow in my quiver – my brain, is still agile, and as long as time shall be with me, I shall write.
And I shall improve, and bring a smile to your face.
This post was borne out of a bout of depression. I might’ve gone overboard with emotions, but that’s poor ol’ me. Apologies over this hugely digressed-apology! 😀
