“Bloggers”: who they really are?
Just a few days, back. I heard some very familiar phrases in the classroom.From my lecturer, that is.
“Your handwriting tells a lot about you”
This is after about 7 years after i heard it.
[The alchemistic smells of home, Delhi, being a Bosconian ,6:30am sprints rush to me. ]
Graphology, left a deep mark on me. It was quoted somewhere:”It is not your hand that writes, but your mind.” And this the philosophy that fuelled my interest in it:
If this was so, then altering the handwriting suitably should alter the way the person thinks,hence his persona also,right? And if this was right, then anyone could become whoever he wanted to by simply changing the way he writes;instead of growing up the way, nature wants us to.
Whatever that discussion comes to is irrelevant here,but what triggered that thread in my mind is this:
Did you know??
“23,000 new blogs are created every day — that’s about one every three seconds.” People were trying to write.Hard.And all the bloggers I had come to know, were either single,” settled”( the way the society saw it: family,kids, careers bloggers).I decided to research the matter.Google searches did not come up with any proper links.So I created a discussion at Blog catalog about this same point about bloggers and being single produced the following responses within minutes:
1)”I’m happily married with a son. My parents, in-laws and most of my college friends live within 10 miles. I’m not close to being lonely and I still blog 6-7 times a week.”
2)”Um…I’m married with 7 kids. I blog several times a week. Not lonely in the least!.”
May be i was wrong.May be not me but the stats were.Or may be time i spent on it was very little.
May be or just may be i was the one who was lonely, and not them?? Could it be that, it was the child in me crying for attention.Then, for the first time ever, blogging has shed light on the man or the child inside.
So blogging does tell things , does it?
Are you thinking the same?
P.S: More stats here.
