The lines imposed on the blogging world, blurs as we step beyond the invisible lines drawn to make friends in real life.
Though we blog under fictitious names, what we write except stories, aren't fiction.
They are our true feelings, honest and from the heart.
You get sympathy, support, advise from various faceless people around the world.
Whether we take the advice or not is secondary, but lovely people do come by to support you and your decisions.
When we do make that conscious effort to step out of the blog world confines of a friendship, we are not sugar coating our personalities.
The actual person, who we are is what is presented. Some friendships click and some don't. When the friendships do click, the pleasure derived in visiting the other person's blog doubles!You have childish games played, comments passed, legs pulled.
Mostly it looks like a huge party with lots of people just having a good time.
Are some of the comments written childish? Sure, they are!
I was discussing the same with Monu the other day and she agreed on that part.
We blog to destress, to talk about aspects of our lives,which we generally wouldn't. We share our feelings with the hope that there is someone else out there who has felt the same, who understands and one who passes on a virtual hug without asking why you need it!
We are here to have fun basically, and to make friends along the way.
Life's hard, to all of us. We all have hiccups, everyday at work is filled with some new challenge or we get burdened with the existing problems.
My blog, my friend's blogs are getaways for me.
So, yea, the comments do get a little childish, the conversation runs into lengths because we pull each other's legs quite a bit :)
Each comment is treasured and each new friend made is celebrated.
So, yea, we fight, we pull each other's legs, we talk random stuff and sometimes on purpose we deviate from the existing topic and talk nonsense! :)
Yea, it helps that we crib, fight and fall all over the blog world to be first!
It helps us laugh and it makes one feel wanted.
So, go right on and be childish and funny and smart, 'cause with all this laughter, we are making our world a happier place to live in! :)
And as Swaram aptly put it, its more about connecting with people than showing off writing skills and making politically correct statements!
Cheers to our wonderful blog samaj which is filled with love, unconditional support and friendship! :)
