There was absolutely no reason why I started to blog. I -- as you have gathered -- have nothing much extraordinary to say. Perhaps the initiation was just to write. But then there's been no dearth of writing for me, as well. So are you trying to say... naa, nothing! Work keeps me quite recklessly at it. I'm not complaining.
Perhaps, it was one another good way to write without having everything that you write subbed. Nothing hurts more than, when your words get slaughtered by someone who fails to see your point of style. Understood that I may not be a 'wizard of words', it neither means that everything has to be thrown away. Some of the biggest frustrations of a sub is to justify their own professional existence; in order to reclaim it, they then evaluate a simpler meaning of your story and begin to elucidate, furthering away from the original style of sense. Sometimes their frustrations fuels, they then, just to add their bit, like to put their words, and make your story look like theirs. The article is then filled with platitudes and jargons, that you neither relate to nor does it make any sense. You wish, if they've taken such great pains in painting your work blue, they might as well add their name and justify it all. But then doesn't happen. Perhaps that's why it was.

Um. I kinda deleted my old blog. I didn't mean to. It just happened. I've got a brand new spanking one now.

Guess this feeling keeps coming in cycles. I keep wondering why I do blog. Sometimes I am really sure, other times I have no clue

If your blog is anything to go by, you do have a style. A very defined one. :)

join the gang of abused subs, brother. this is one job i will not be in again, ever. on the blog, show the world a finger buddy. actually we dont need to. people in the office are like, oh there goes moonstruck, the man who pens nothing but gibberish. or maybe he is trying to sound like this one writer. i didnt have a reason for starting a blog. i dont have one right now too. and i dont care who reads it and who doesnt as long as someone just reads it. i just have one solution - a lil bit of acid, a lil bit of rum and coke, and i chill with someone crooning somewhere. cheers buddy. ur blog is worth reading and surely worth reading....
