101

101. This is not an emergency number. This is the 101th post of my blog. I wanted to write about my blog experience on my 100th post but my travel experience took that place 🙂 so I’m writing it in my 101th post.

Reaching 100 is not as big or special as Sachin’s centuries of centuries. I have seen many bloggers reaching that number very soon after starting their blog. Still this 100 is special to me.

I have not continued doing anything this long. I never did anything consistent in all my life. It really surprises me that I have blogged for nearly 4 years. So this 100 is not ordinary to me.

Let me share few facts about my blog and me.

Why I blog?

I always wanted to own a website during my college days. That too, I wanted to create a web site on my own. So I created my first website in 2006 in the name of enterbaluzworld.netfirms.com (its dead now). Though I did not like the hosting service name ‘netfirms’ after my website address, I had no choice at that time :))

This crap web site was live until the free hosting service expired. I modified it a couple of times and then at some point I understood that I’m not a good web developer/designer. So I stopped wasting time on it. Still I wanted to be a part of the web space. I learned about WordPress somehow and started this blog in the name of balamuthu.wordpress.com in 2008. I recently bought the domain name balamuthu.com when I took blogging seriously.

What I blog?

I used my blog more like a Facebook in the beginning. I used to post or share what ever I find interesting on the web. Then I started to treat it as my diary and posted more about the happenings and thoughts of mine. When I read back my own blog, I felt very good.

I do not write or explain things very well and one can find hell lot of grammatical mistakes on my blog :D, still I don’t mind those and I just write what ever I feel. It’s my damn website 😀

What I read?

I like to read other people’s ramblings. I peek in to other blogs and enjoy reading theirs :). Recently I have found many interesting blogs like Kam’s Column, VandySnape, AmaltaasPurpleBooky, Rhymes with ViennaMy Cup of Tea and lot more…

I show interest to blogs about life, technology, poems and so on.

What I have learnt?

Earlier, It was hard for me to write more than few lines. But now I write so many paragraphs even if there is no matter at all.This post is an example :). I hate lengthy posts and I’m worried that mine is becoming one of those 😦

In the beginning, I don’t mention the source of images/information that I have used in my blog. Now I try to create a picture on my own or mention if I use others.

Regarding comments, I used to comment on other blogs just to make them visit my blog and get some hits :). then, I have become little honest and I started to comment genuinely expecting nothing in return. 🙂

What I expect?

I expect my blog to be a super hit and want the whole world visit my website until the server becomes down :D.I also like to make a lot of good friends.

So that is all about my blog. There is nothing more to tell.

Happy Blogging!!

    As I said, from my PC now:

    Balu, you are very good human being and no more evidence can beat your blog in proving that. As you said, I read what all you blogged beginning with small things, software, links, mobile to your mom, reviews, etc… etc… to your very recent flight journey! You have a very nice flavour of humour and love in almost all of your posts! I appreciate that. There are a few emotional posts too… like this one or the love letter (maths :D)… LOL!

    When it comes to reading, you have always been a very kind commentator and so great you are to share a few blogs on your post (which includes mine, an honour). 🙂 all of that only forces us to believe that there is a reader for us to write. You enhance that real-good-blogging-experience. I mean it. If you doubt, ask Jayati :).

    Your post pinged my memories:
    1. I created first website on netfirms in 2005 for our private study club from college 🙂 ecasa.netfirms.com is gone I think, now.
    2. Later for my friend in bravenet / bravehost for his art work. He indeed is a good artist like you are.
    3. I was on blogger – blogspot from july/aug 2008 and moved to wordpress very recently may be in february to met wonderful people like you are! 🙂
    4. I got a domain name – kamscolumn.com in 2010 lol!

    I am happy to have come across your blog! 🙂 You are inspiring in your own ways. And, when you said about continuing it for so long, I think – the same is the case with me. 🙂 Hey! I am not copying 😉 but that’s what I am.

    • April 27, 2012 at 5:03 pm

      I second you Kam.
      Its true that Balu has been a great reader as well as a true commenter sharing real feedback and reply. It feels good that we have some real readers of the blog.
      Its a privilege that Balu has shared our blogs on his blog 🙂

      • April 27, 2012 at 8:11 pm

        It’s good to have frequent visitors like you and Kam. Thank you.

    • April 27, 2012 at 7:58 pm

      Kam, You flatterd me. If you were girl, I would have said, I love you 😀
      Hey, you too hosted a site in netfirms? We have a lot in common dude. I’m happy that I have got a great friend here.
      Even your blog reminds me of something that I have come across 🙂
      Again, you are so wise in your comments and I have got a nice friend in here!
