So when I created my first blog a couple of years back, I can safely say it meant little more to me than an escape route for some of my thoughts which I was getting grossly obsessed with. It was then a personal spot of seclusion and reclusion and I doubt if it had ever had any reader except myself to even gloss through it. It was around 3 months later, that, irritated at the stupidity of some of my posts, I deleted the blog in a huff, thinking that it had all been one fine trip into the world of blogging, but that my part in it was over for now.
How wrong I was! My true tryst with blogging was yet to start.
Jan-08:My roomie creates a blog and posts a couple of poems he's written. Everyone seems to be very excited about it. So for the lack of better things to do, I decide to show to the world that there is nothing so great or holy about either of the two, and "Life and Death" is born. It was what I could call my first true blog, but my first post didn't quite have the effect I had desired. I had named it "Goodbye in Advance", and several people thought I was actively contemplating suicide. Here's an insight:
Life has been short, so said a friend
Short it does seem, when we near its end
Remember me, second to none
After all has been said and done
When I am dead or I am lost
I won't return at any cost
It is not so easy to die
It pains so much to say goodbye
I like to live, I like so much
There is no one I hate as such
We like to think that life is long
It might yet end before this song
When life seems unpleasant or hard
Don't think it's played it's toughest card
Good things in life just look so bad
That when they pass you feel so sad
You didn't when you had the chance
Though now you may have changed your stance
But what has gone has gone away
Now I must go, I cannot stay
So farewell friends, one and all
I must answer a higher call
Thus began my foray into the blogosphere. I started to actively follow blogs, fill some of my own ones and discuss blogs and blogging on irc and stuff. It was then that kkn-lug.blogspot.com happened, in response to a diktat that everyone in GLUG core committee must have their own blogs to spread FOSS awareness. By then, my no. of posts were respectably high in what I then called my personal blogs. However, my blogs were so strewn with personally damnable data that I felt uncomfortable to advertise it to the world at large. My bloglife then had a personality spilt, between the personal and the professional.
08 April,2009:Life turns full cycle, they say. I was appointed JOURNALIST, GLUG, NIT-Dgp, whatever that is supposed to mean, earlier today. My responsibilities include settling and documenting the plethora of blogs the various lugcore people have set up through the year. What better day can there be, I ask myself, to merge my split cyberself back into a single entity. I fall back on my true friend, my tried and tested username : k k n u n d y . The transformation is complete. The journey, I guess, is far from over yet.
