Being anonymous…it’s fun.. its scary .. Only fellow bloggers and people who happen to read my blogs are the ones who are aware that I am a blogger…no body not my husband, not my mother, not my best friends know that I am doing this. They do not know that I am writing to the world my deepest darkest secrets.. my fears.. my feelings …sometimes I feel guilty and want to tell them. But then I do not know how they would react.. my husband starts fuming if I surf for anything apart from foodblogs.. especially ‘orkut’ irritates him to no end. I have also become sick of ‘Orkut’ in some ways.. people have started using it for flaunting.. show off… getting equal with others and what not.. I am sure it has its good side also like it has helped us to get back to some long lost good friends from College and School .. but I think some of the feelings of my hubby dear has rubbed on to me .

I have sort of become obsessed of being a blogger… while going back home from office in the chartered bus when I see so many people girls.. sitting seriously or chatting away I sometimes wonder.. how many of them might be blogging…;) ??? Does the blogger has to have a particular look, I don’t think so.. from a simpleton to a modern one any body can blog… Orkut., facebook, twitter, I feel all this had been been overexposed but blogging is so different.. it seems as if we are in the midst of a set of people whom we might have never met, but who seems to have identical thoughts, identical experiences and above all their empathising with your feelings gives a totally different meaning to communication… so blogging is a boon, to be able to write and feel and then to find people acknowledging you and your feelings… I would forever remain a blogger… …at least that’s what I feel now 

    No I don't wonder how many people blog, but I wonder how many in my school know I blog..about them heheheheee...

  7. Wow! It must be a feat keeping it secret - I know that I would have never been able to do it :) I started blogging because I use to bore my husband to death with all my crazy ideas :) Not all my friends know I blog though - I told only a few of my close friends as I was too self conscious :)

  8. Hi there, thanks for stopping by my blog. I appreciate your kind words. I can relate to your being anonymous, for different reasons. I guess you are free when you are anonymous with no expectations or role to fit into and probably that helps you to express yourself without inhibitions or being self-conscious. I also like the name of your blog "soul searching". Wish you all the very best and have a wonderful year ahead!
