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.

In fact blogging breaks are necessary to recharge one’s thoughts and creativity and to write wonderful come back posts πŸ™‚

So without much further ado, I would like to announce my break from blogging starting from this post till my come back post πŸ˜€ The reason being my M.E. 2nd sem exams from 30 April to 8th May. I will not post till exams are over. However I’ll surely reply to your comments. I may or may not be reading and commenting on your posts. Even if I do, then only on some posts. Rest after the exams. I know by that time my Google Reader will be overflowing with posts. But I will surely read each one of them.

However during this time I will be alive and kicking at Tumblr and of course Twitter. You can check out some good random stuff like cartoons, pictures, quotes, videos, songs at my tumblr log and if you are on twitter then you can follow me by just clicking on the blue birdie in my sidebar.

I had submitted my blog to be included in Amit Agarwal’s (of Digital Inspiration fame) Directory of Top Blogs in India and Most Widely Read Indian Bloggers twice. But there was no response. Then I grumbled about it on twitter and Voila!! I am there!! Under “Personal” blogs. πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ Thanks Amit!
