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, Amaltaas, PurpleBooky, Rhymes with Vienna, My 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.
I’m Balu, from India. I write about the happenings, my thoughts etc. Catch up with me at my blog.
