Thanks! Not for looking, but your comments!
Of course, I am not entirely convinced by the numbers shown. Especially, TUIB’s low ‘score’!
Whenever I look at my blog, I feel satisfied by at least one thing–comments have largely been sincere.
There have been numerous arguments and disagreements, but honestly, they have only reassured me that those thus commenting had not simply glossed over ideas presented in my posts. That those ideas had been able to stir something in the reader to induce them to engage them with at least some thoughtfulness. Of course sometimes, those very dissenting/different thoughts have given me something new to think about, and made me see the World in an altered way.
There have also been posts with comments full of frivolity. And am glad, they were expected to be like that!
Some might ask me, do I care for comments? Yes, I do.
I am not one of those inclined to instantaneously put pen to paper (even if so in the ‘virtual’ maze of electrons being thrashed around) owing to a spontaneous outpouring of my passions. This could probably be because of a high ‘turnover rate’ of my emotions! Meaning, new emotions keep on displacing the older ones very quickly, which would not allow any single emotion to exert sufficient influence on my ego (click; second meaning) to make me write about it! Okay, bad theory! Though some posts, to my own suprise, have been emotional outbursts as well!
So, I do not write in isolation. I do expect that my ideas find readers–not (necessarily) with same ideas as mine, but those who would have thought on the very same issues, if not before, at least after reading!
Yes, I do look forward to comments on my posts!
To end this post, I would only say that my blog has become a very integral part of my life, which I had never imagined when publishing my first few posts.
And very suprisingly, it has brought me in contact with a few people, who I could safely call my ‘friends’! A few wonderful people who I truly value today for reasons more than one, and who I would have not known, had it not been for this medium. I am overwhelmed, and to them I could only say, though it would sound cliched on my blog:
Thanks for existing! And also for letting me know that you did.
