Being momentarily contemporary...

After all those evasively sensible and substantive blog entries (?) in my blog, I have received a lot of feedbacks. They came to me in all sizes, and from all corners. No matter how they were, I loved them all. They ranged from those typical 'just fumbled across your blog' stuff to some very serious and critical ones. It is a good sign, for any system with a feedback is always dynamic. Thnx to all those reviews, for they have cleared beyond doubt, that my blog is 'Dynamic'. Keep them coming.

Now to the real stuff of this post. I have begun to think of this, do my blog entries hold the same relevance, say 1 or 2 years down the line? It's really been haunting me. I have been in to blogging very recently, and my blogging potentials are still in the stages of infancy. I have always believed that ‘texting’ of your ideas or thoughts ditto, as they rush through your minds, is a real tough job. I am still learning the subtle skills of a truly seasoned blogger. There’s a long way to go, and I am on my path of imbibing all those skills.

I still remember when I first read about this powerful tool, popularly known as blogs. My first ever blog visit was, a blog owned by a student of ISB, Pratima Jayaram. I really liked her writing style and the way she used to put her ideas in a convincing fashion. Then some where down the line, I also 'dreamt' of having a blog of my own. That's how was born, my blog "IT'S MY LIFE". Thnx to the blog and its owner, I owe both of them a lot. I have derived a lot of inspiration from her blog. From then on, there has been no looking back. I have been blogging stupendously.

All was ok, until I was confronted with this 'Relevancy of my blog" stuff. What accompanies this is a worry, the thing they call it typically "Being contemporary" in your work. Now that puts any blogger in to some serious retrospection. I have begun to question to myself, how contemporary are my blog entries? The answer to this is still mystical.

But one thing is for sure, whatever I have blogged till date were either things I have experienced personally or concepts I have utterly believed in. I see my blog as a wonderful tool to express all my carks. I have firmly believed that, no matter how 'Lilliputian' my dreams or my ideas may be, I would jot them down and ensure that I turn them all in to a reality.

Off late blogging has become an obsession, more out of sheer happiness it gives me in sharing my thoughts and feelings and less for the mere sake of scribbling something crap. Sorry, I am not in to it. I mean what I write.

Finally, I end it here, with a question to all you bloggers (and readers as well) out there, Have ever been haunted with this "Being momentarily contemporary" stuff?

If yes, let me know...

PS: I feel that being momentarily contemporary in your blog entries is a joy in itself, as it leaves behind an impression of all those thoughts and ideas that arise in your mind out of sheer whim. A priceless asset registered in text and image, in your online dairy called blog.
