pinocchio in me.


Why do we write blogs? Does it give any kind of satisfaction or mental relief once we jot down our thoughts? Does it mean that whatever we write is true?

No. Its not always true. I mix up things happened in my life and someone else's life. Sometimes I take stuffs happened in someone else's life and write as if it happened to me few hours ago. Blog, though we write it, we dont read it. We write it for others. If we dont want others to read, why dont we write personal diaries instead of blogs?

Blogs are for entertainment. Before I write something, I used to think, will the readers like this post? Will they comment on my post? Will they come back again to read my future posts? What would they feel if I write about this topic. I want to entertain people. I hope everyone does the same. People write/read blogs to kill time, to get a break, to shed their thoughts, to shed their tensions.

As I said in one of my previous posts, no one has the right to question us about what we write in our blog as long as we dont specifically mention their name or a picture or any other information that can lead to finding them. It can be a coincidence. Or it can be anything else for that matter. You can't judge someone just by reading their blogs.

Please don't believe what I write. A 'story', by the word itself, is a lie. That makes the story-teller a liar. So am I.

PS: Now, the question is, can you believe this post? That makes this post, a paradox.

Lol... i started this blog thinking tht i am gonna write whtever comes up in my mind at tht time. like an open diary. But then the thought of wht if ppl dont read me, wht if they read but never comment. So here i go. trying to find things which might amuse. Whether it does or not is a diff question.

Lying in the virtual world doesnt harm anyone..lol

btw a post is waiting for ur comment.

Mmm...I write because I need an outlet to vent!
Honestly, I'd go crazy if it werent for my blog. Its the only place where I can put my inner most thoughts and not be judged.
In my case, a personal diary is practically impossible because my family is super nosy!! :P

It doesnt matter if someone reads or not.. I have been writing from last 5 years and most of the times I wrote about my life..
It is now that I am taking writing seriously and created my blog for the readers...

Well, I have a slightly different take on this. For me, the line between fiction and non-fiction is very broad:)

Great Post! And I think somewhere deep down we all love hogging the spotlight. In our own unique way, sitting somewhere in some remote corner of the globe.. we need to make sure that our voice is being heard! right?
