That Time Of Blog Life

There comes a time in every blogger’s life when he/she suffers from writer’s block like Rekha or becomes too busy to blog like Suda/Sakhi/Willow or finds it hard to keep up the regularity of posts like Nita or is too overwhelmed by new married life to blog like Scorpria or loses the creativity needed to blog like Perx or is busy in relocating like Nimmy or is too busy hatching evil plans to conquer the world like Ashish or has been doing it for so long that he is now bored with blogging like Ishmeet. And then there are some who just vanish without a word like Meghana (Last time I read she was learning to drive. Hope she is ok! :P), Wasshappening, Sharad, Manoj. This cartoon sums up the blogger’s cycle quite aptly.

Road Rash in Real Life

rr21

This is one of the levels of the popular PC game “Road Rash”. Sadly I play this game in real life daily. How? My daily drive from my home to the college where I work is nothing short of  Road Rash’s The City but of Level 5. The description “Nasty traffic and zombie pedestrians” does no justice to the categories of people I come across while driving. Unlike the kicks the biker in the game has, I am armed only with :-

Blog Name and Best Post

As I wrote in my earlier post, I have been toying with the idea of changing the name of my blog. So I asked my readers whether I should change my blog name or not in a poll. The results were :-

51% voters said no.

39% voters said yes.

5% voters polled can’t say and another 5% said “others”.

There were some good and hilarious suggestions from Suda and Vikas. I too have come up with some names :-

Ghost Story and Bag of Bones

In 25 random things about me post, I mentioned that I have had a ghostly experience once. There was a huge demand by readers to know the  story. So here it goes :-

It was quite late at night and I was sleeping.  Suddenly I felt a chill and woke up. I felt someone’s presence in my room. I was too scared to move or open my eyes fully. With my eyes slightly open, I saw a little girl dancing near my bed. The chill had increased. I closed my eyes promptly and tried to go back to sleep (That is what I do when I am scared at times like a thunderstorm at night or a bad dream). I felt her come near my head and I thanked Mom  in my mind for pestering me to sleep inside the mosquito net. As I felt her coming closer, I tried harder to sleep and next thing I knew it was morning.

A New Blog Name

Since many days I have been thinking that how unimaginative and lame is my blog name – “My Random Thoughts”. In a moment of one of the greatest imagination blocks, I had decided on this name for my blog where I wanted to pen down my thoughts.
