Extremely busy times worry me all the time. Not that I have been occupied round the clock, but sometimes even when you are not too busy, certain things still take a back seat. Like blogging. It relaxes me a lot, but these days, I have a lot of other reading and researching work and this is resulting into less blogging. I do not like it, but well, I do not have any other option either.
Come to think of it, blogging plays a very important role in my life. I have made amazing friends thanks to the blogs. A few of them are even closer than my real world friends. I can talk to them about anything and everything. I feel more close to them even though I have never ever seen or met them. To an extend that these days when I have something to share or when I need to talk to a friend just like that, my blog buddies are the first people who come on my mind.
Those I speak with already know that I am talking about them :) Beauty of blogging - you write about people here and they are the one to read this too. It's so easy to make them happy here :P
Apart from getting a few awesome friends for life, blogging has helped me in my profession too. I teach Business Communication to the students. In this, they have to study about various methods of communication. Since my blogroll has bloggers from across the globe, I am aware about their formal and informal culture at work, at home or in their social circle. This has helped me to make my lectures interesting. I keep giving them gyaan about my knowledge and they get very impressed :P
It's always wonderful to read blogs. For, you get to know about so many things happening in the country you may never heard of, or the custom or culture completely new to you. Even in India, there are so many festivals which I read about for the first time after blogging happened to me.
I have even learnt what to disclose and how to write on a blog. I have had my share of happy as well as sad as well as angry moments here. But they all have been fun at the end of it.
Errrrr, did the last para sound as if I am quitting blogging? No this is not a closing speech. You cannot get so lucky so soon. Lack of time or not, I will find time to blog. I love doing so. It rejuvenates me completely. Well it makes me angry too when people take my sarcasm as compliment (lol), but that's fine. It makes me feel more intelligent and boosts my ego which does a lot of good to me all the time :P
By the way, a note written by me on facebook made me pretty much (un)popular in the blogging circle. If we have common friends, then you will be able to view it. Click here to read it.
