Blogggggggginnnnggggg

There is a lot of buzz about blogs and blogging these days. Everybody would like to have their presence on the web, moreover they want to express their thoughts and ideas to a far wider audience than was ever possible (i am talking about ordinary human beings like me, ofcourse). Naturally the growth of blogs has been explosive. You can get blog hosting for free and enough advice on how to start your own blog is available. I was surprised to find that O'Reilly has published a book on blogging :-). Essential Blogging written by Cory Doctorow, Rael Dornfest, J. Scott Johnson, Shelley Powers, Benjamin Trott, Mena G. Trott includes practical advice and insider tips on the features, requirements, and limitations of applications such as Blogger, Radio Userland, Movable Type, and Blosxom. This book will get you up and blogging in no time.
Google's webcrawler will find your blog within a week and when somebody searches for your name in Google, a link to your blog will be included in the top search results.
There is also an option to put up advertisements on your blog site and earn some cash ;-)
Well, lets not come to the conclusion that all is well in blogging. Sometimes people doesnt have something interesting to say (and write something like this ;-)) and people who have something to say most probably wont have time for a blog (i am an exception, ofcourse ;-)) Actually
writing coherently is one of the most difficult and time-consuming tasks for a human being to undertake.

All in all, I am glad that I have started blogging, althought I might not have interesting things to say all the time...

PS: You don't seem to reply to any comment dropped on your blog. One thing you can use to attract people to your blog, IMHO etc., is to actively use the comments section for exchange of ideas.
