The real deal with Funny/well-written Blogs.

Here's the deal, then. It all comes down to how much time you have, really. Really. So just because my blog only discusses details about my life, does it make any less credit-worthy? Of course it does, because Im not making people laugh, it doesnt classify as a "good read", its self obsessive... and obviously, the whole world will forget the key word here. MY blog. Why should it include details of my life then?

It took my 11 years in school to realize Im not a funny person. Im one of those who'll probably get all the jokes cracked on all topics, but i wont be the one cracking them. Maybe, just maybe, I might say something funny but my kinda funny is generally witty-funny or sarcastic-funny. Not humorous or situational funny. So why should my blog make anybody laugh anyway? Thats not who i am.

Ok, next. The only things that bother me, would be topics that have been written about all over the place. Like feminism or homosexuality or religion or popular culture or music and what should be listened to or molestations or recent newspaper updates. My opinion is either going to be for or agaisnt the topic, which can easily be read about. Why bother putting down my opinion unless there's a discussion among friends and family... why would i write about it? Unless i dont ger another forum to express my opinion, which ahs really never happened to me, so Phew.

A good writer... who is?? Kinda broad isnt it? Who decides whats good, what is credit-worthy, what is supposed to be read and what not? Most importantly who decides that when a blog only discusses PERCEPTIVELY trivial day to day details or the individual's life, it becomes self-obsessive?
Okay, do i WANT to write about surrounding issues? Not write, but i jump on any opportunity to write an article or speak about it. Am i the only one who treats me blog as a personal journal or E-diary? What do you think? You- not the next shakespeare or Salman Rushdie, not the next Sanam Khanna (my god-like college professor), not my current best friend, my 100 or so friends or my romantic interest... but you, the person, you.

Do write it... atleast then i'll know how many read my blog.

Lol! You're the Abraham Lincoln of the blogging world!

I use my blog as a sort of sob sheet where I keep whining about how the world in general, and my wife and kids in particular, keep troubling pore ol' innocent me.

No reason why you shouldn't do the same. I realize you probably don't have a wife and kids (lucky you) but surely, you can find things to whine about.

Ain't no law against whining.

Cheers!

Find things to whine about?? That's an understatement, really. I should re-name my blog to The whine queen's..

p.s- not funny again. :D
