Interesting Blogs

I have been reading quite a few interesting blogs over the past few days, and it leaves me completely amazed. Some people have wonderful writing styles, and/or a sense of humor. I'm always in awe of people who could write pretty well, and think about varied topics to write about. I have never quite been able to get out of 'myself' mode - I do have my views on the world, but can be written in a line. I like cricket, I love movies, I hate XYZ, etc. I can't analyze things in details over a few paragraphs - life is very black and white for me. And thankfully my profession doesn't need me to think in anything other than digital options. 

Of perhaps all the blog I know, I find mine the least interesting (from a 3rd person's view). Coz it has nothing for anyone - I hardly write anything with anyone else in my mind. Most of the time, its me talking to myself. And its not even like me writing about my life and experiences - its almost always incomplete. I know about the context, and I end up writing about a sub-part of it. Most of the stuff is written so that I could read back after say 10 years, and realize how different I was earlier. So that I could understand how I felt at an earlier stage of my life, and how events unfolded. So, I write about my experiences when I started learning driving, or bought my first car, or got married. One can capture the moments in pictures, but one can't capture their feelings and thinkings that way.

oh, I feel the same way about my posts. I feel I rarely write about any "issue". I dont even write to 'write' per se. But I do write down stuff when I need to vent out stuff. Thats the reason I have a blog I guess. I can rant about anything to a blank page, which will not stop me if the page gets bored. ;) :D

@Neha: Hmm, not sure if I rant here or not. But its a very nice place to do so, and people love reading about it as well :P - may be its an online equivalent of gossiping..

I usually write when I have lot of free time, and am doing some interesting stuff in my life. Or when I am thinking about making some changes in it.
