In one of my earlier posts, I had mentioned that I completed third batch of teaching. Now, fourth one is ready too! It starts from Monday. It's going to be a CS inter batch and for the first time, I will be teaching three subjects - all law related ones. Oh by the way, have I mentioned that I teach Business Communication and Management too? They are interesting subjects too. If you say it in B-school language, there is a lot more of gas to them than the book material! I enjoy teaching it as I can talk on any damn topic. Communication and management is all about that anyway - a lot of gas, a lot of crap and a lot of talking!
Now, it's been quite some time since I started blogging. Initially, there was an enthusiasm to write frequently, update the blog every third day, receive comments etc., but slowly that phase died down. At some point, I had even believed that I could be humorous too, for people did find a few posts funny, and that made me slightly conscious. I used to try to sound funny in every damn piece I wrote, which started getting boring after some time. I mean, how many times you are going to crack the same joke on bloggers, numbers, anonymity and expect people to leave LOL in the comment box?
And thus I realized - humour was not my cup of tea. I can throw subtle humour here and there, but writing a downright witty post is not possible. Anyway we lawyers lack sense of humour as we don't get paid for being funny. Our serious face helps us earn money.
Talking of humour, I see so many people on twitter these days who have taken up stand up comedy as their profession. I know one or two of them personally too. They were in my college and were always upto some or the other prank! It was a delight to watch them in a comedy act which is unlike the one you see on Indian comedy shows. It is better, more fresh with good punches and good themes. And like most places, here too you will find a few overrated people who are not so funny but still are popular enough!
Now, this always happens with me. I start writing a post with a topic in mind and talk about everything else but that topic. Now, there is an unsaid rule in this blogging world. If you want readers on your blog, you first have to visit other blogs and leave comments there. Then only people will come back and read you and comment on your post. You have to keep doing it whenever that person updates his/her blog to ensure that you have that person in your regular reader list!
I have a few such readers who read me regularly and I read them too. But there is one particular reader whose blog I read once in a while, NEVER leave a comment and she makes a point to read and comment on almost all my posts. That reader is Rajlakshmi of Destiny's Child. This girl has been reading me since very beginning. She is very much regular on this space. If ever I have seen an unconditional reader, she is the one. I don't remember when I left a comment on her post last time. I read her posts on my phone as I have subscribed to her blog's RSS feeds, but I don't comment on her blog.
It feels good to have such readers. Thanks Rajlakshmi :)
PS: I cannot think of an appropriate header for this post, thus this one!
