Blog Report

Well, as a part of my English project, I was given a choice- either work on letters or blogs. After a lot of brain-storming, I finally decided upon writing blog.  The reason is that while I was in 9th grade, I heard about blog somewhere because one of my mother’s cousin used to write it (Currently, He’s inactive). So then, one day, I suddenly decided to maintain a blog and ended up writing some posts. But then, I lost interest after sometime and discontinued. But then again the decision was taken, I WILL revive my blog.
The reasons this time where completely different. I wanted my posts to be more matured (the posts I wrote previously were quite amateurish according to me, by the way) and be more informative and one most important thing, I should be able to convey my thoughts in a more meaningful manner.
So the first post which I wrote after a hiatus was Indian English. I was quite fascinated and annoyed the way Indians speak English. So when I sat down to write down my first post, Indian English came to my mind. And well, this time, I researched for a lot of videos and pictures that would help my blog better. The main focus of my blog was that how our cultural diversities has affected the way we converse in English with distinct accents and on how we ignore grammar while speaking English later resulting in nothing but trouble all the way. This post, I confess, was the most researched post I’ve ever worked upon.
And then the second post arrived which was on childhood. You see, amidst all the chaos and trouble I was facing currently, a lot of thoughts were going in and out of my head and that one thing which was always and is still there in my mind was the time when I was a carefree kid. The main emphasis of this post was that how childhood makes us forget all the anxiety, depression we have in our minds for a moment and makes us want to relive those beautiful moments.
Talking about the third post, I was initially writing a post comparing our film industry with that of Hollywood. But in the end, I ended up writing a post comparing old songs with the current songs. Strange, isn’t it? The main focus of this post was on the reason why the so-called melody in today’s songs has disappeared all of a sudden.
Speaking of response, although I tried my best promoting the blog but I was unable to gather number of comments I expected to gather. But nevertheless, I received a few responses which you can see in the comment section of each post.
I've learnt a lot while writing these three posts (and this report as well). The most important thing that I learnt was that you should be very much regular with posting new posts and it should be always kept short (Well, that depends on you depending on the knowledge you have about the topic on which you are writing) but should make an impact on the reader irrespective of what the post is talking about.
I confess that I tried to be regular in this second innings of writing blogs and well, I've been successful to a large extent though I still need to buck up and write some more blogs knowing that a lot of things are kept in store for the future so that time is not too far when I’ll be posting on a regular basis.
But for now, the revival has been quite satisfying according to me and I hope to keep posting more interesting and detailed stuff in the near future.
