Wow, the title itself sounds so fascinating to me. My first blog post. It just feels so heavenly to have something in your own name. After writing scores of articles as a ‘ghost writer’ for websites ranging right from selling prom dresses in some other continent to writing about places to take your girlfriend for valentine’s day dinner to talking about the pristine love of Radha and Krishna, writing articles that appeared on some websites and the worst part of having to see those articles getting pasted with other people’s names at the end, Finally, Finally, finally (with some pushing by some great friends) I mustered up courage to have a blog in my name. So here it is. My blog. My place. Trust me; I am on cloud nine. I know, mere opening of a blog doesn’t account for partying, but I still am. The thrill of seeing your name below any article or blog is something only a writer would understand.
From quite some time now, I have been thinking about having my own blog, then writing a novel, becoming a successful and a popular writer, then signing a multi-crore deal for portraying my novels on celluloid .. ok I know I am going overboard, but hey.. this is my blog and I can blabber about things I want to blabber about. Ofcourse, hoping that my blabbering should not be taken as blabbering and people reading my blabber should take my blabber as something more insightful than just a blabber. Okay ! enough of it.
Anyways, while I thought of having a blog all the time, things like what kind of topics would I like to write, will somebody be interested to read what I write, should I be generating some great revolutionary ideas etc. etc. churned inside my brain. I talked with some friends about starting up a blog. While discussing the idea with a friend, I told him that I have a beautiful collection of poems written by me which I thought I would put up on my blog. But then, I was sure, it would get stolen from my blog and it wouldn’t belong to me anymore and it would out there in the open for anyone to copy and paste it wherever they wanted to. This is what I was replied: “Okay, so you are thinking that your film might get pirated even before you have the story in your hand. You first have to have a story, get a cast, make the film, work on the music, market your film and then, then worry about stopping it from getting pirated.” I was stumped for sure. He was right. I mean, I was thinking that the World was just waiting to steal my (into inverted commas, capital letters) amazing posts just when I would put them on the blog and then I will have to start fighting the battle against the piracy of my poems and ideas and thoughts. Whatevahhh !!! But let me tell you, if that's the case, I am ready to fight the ‘Great battle of Piracy’ of my poems and ideas and thoughts if they are stolen from my blog. I told you, I am a big time dreamer !! :D :D
Meanwhile, I became an avid reader of scores of blogs trying to gauge their writing style and the topics they wrote about. And in the process, while I came across some amazing blogs and writing styles (more about that later), I also hit a few blogs from people who wrote their posts in such pathetic English and made such sick grammatical errors, I felt like robbing them of their ‘License to write’ (if something like this exists) and declare ‘sazaa-e-kalapani’ of not allowing them to write for the next seven lives. Okay, you got it. I AM one of those who are finicky about grammatical errors and bad English.
Then there were thoughts about what would I name my blog. Trust me, all the beautiful names that I wanted to have for my blog are already out there. And then suddenly one day, after eating mentos, the batti of my dimaag lit up and I had this (into inverted commas & capital letters) super amazing idea of naming my blog as ‘Dreams and Dimensions’. I mean, that’s what I am going to do here. Scribble my dreams, my thoughts, my ideas, my way of life!!! Scribble about whatever strongly or lightly I feel about. Scribble in my own writing style. Scribble about what I am. And the umpteen number of dimensions; me as a person has!
Well, lastly, I just feel overwhelmed at the idea of having my own blog. I just hope to keep going with this blog and much more in coming times.. Okay, I am NOT crying. So this post is about the beginning of my journey into the world of blogging. Hope you would have liked my first blabber and would continue coming back here for some more of it. Ciao.. :)
