I started this blog six months ago. We had just launched a corporate blog and the positive feedback it received convinced me that i also should publish my – this word is a bloggers’ favourite – musings online. June was good, experimenting, laying the ground-rules, posts on people and places closest to my heart – Sangham, REC, Vonnegut. July was better, lot of passion, lot of posts, and the response from my core audience was excellent.

That scared me. I froze. I couldn’t write.

I started posting stuff from my ‘Stuff’ folder and stuff i found on the Net – Meera Nandakumar, ‘I am a Malayali’, Chak De Mallus… My friends had given up on the blog, but the high that the blog-stats gave me made it easier to ignore the fact.

Not any more. I am going back to my original credo.

ബാബു കുരിയാക്കൊസ്‌ ഇനി ഇടക്ക്‌ മലയാളത്‌തില്‍ ബ്ലൊഗ് ചെയ്യും. സൂക്ഷിക്കുക!

Check out, a ‘Manglish to Malayalam converter’ for more info, including how to make sense of the stuff above.

My thanks to Tess Thomas for the info.

4. Meera Nandakumar (Idea Star Singer)
5. REC Calicut/ Alumni
6. The Class of 57 – Statler Brothers

8. New 2 Rupee Coin

It all started when a friend mailed me a link “I have a blog!”. Two days of blogroll surfing, and I was hooked.

The first few days were like, you know, the first few days…unsure, clumsy, self conscious. Then, the first comment “Pretty cool, man”, ecstasy! somebody likes my stuff. I saved the page, printed it, grabbed a screenshot…I am a blogger!

From there, things got out of control pretty fast. My live revolved around the blog. I was spending so much time on the blog that my wife moved out and my biggest dilemma was whether to categorise it ‘Family’ or ‘Fun’. Then I discovered blog stats…

Each hit gave me a new high and the only thing that mattered was the hit count. I would ping Technorati every hour, mail my site address to people I hardly knew, post rave reviews about my blog on random sites, and, I hate to admit this, visit my blog every now and then, just to keep the counter ticking…

Then a fellow addict introduced me to Blogaholics Anonymous. Now, whenever I get the urge to blog, a volunteer from BA would come and sit with me till I feel better.

I am not fully cured yet. All I can say is I haven’t blogged today.

Thank you for dropping by
I love you
