Life as I'm learning it

Awaiting Mr. 10000

As of this writing, VKpedia has received 9996 hits (of which a good number should be from a narcissist, whom my parents named Vijay Krishna). When I started out, I did not know that 40 people would care to look up my corner in Cyberia every single day.

I didn't realise I would be part (however small that might have been) of something as ground-shaking as Bloggers v/s IIPM. Never realised I would meet hundreds of new people - none of whom I have ever seen or spoken to. Yet, I have wondered how they would react to some news, incident or occurrence.

I remember, when I was in high school, I dreamed that I would be a great person some day, and I would have a website where I would put my thoughts and people who fall over each other and read it. In a way, therefore, my idea of blogging had started even before blogs first originated.

My first blog was christened Notes of a Nomad, rather appropriately I must say, because I subtitled it "a wanderlust in spirit". That fantasy ran for four weeks, after which I had decided that it was enough. Subsequent attempts should compete for stupidity awards. Then one fine day, I stumbled on the name VKpedia as a play on Wikipedia. I created a blog more to hog that name rather than with any other serious idea. The rest is his-story...

Blogging has been a learning experience through and through. I might not have been a devoted learner, but the new vistas this hobby has opened are boundless. You may not like it, dear reader, but I love blogging, and I will continue doing it!

Congrats n keep it up. Its a little worrying that there is long gap these days between your posts. Many of your pals seem to think the same way. Any way it is still a record worthy of emulation. Blog on
