Us at blogger


http://www.blogger.com/ ; yea, the thing that binds us together, blogger

How many of us open our blogs first thing when we switch on our computers?

*raises hand*

How many amongst us analyze the situations of every-day life like we would enter them on our little owned space on the web?

*raises hand*

Who get worried because some friend had a sad post put-up?

Who think about some comments and start laughing in the middle of a lecture?

Who are attached to blog-mates; laugh with them, cry with them, coz even if no-one else in the world does, they still do the same for us……

Love ya guys! This one is for you. To all my blog-buds and any-one else who bothers to read it all :-)


Well, every-one has their way of analyzing everything. I do, by categorizing; yes, even people. So heres something I cooked up for all those who live via blogger. Interested? Read on!

Kinds of people we come across all the time on blogger. Categories and traits

*~* the Wacky Weirdos [WWs]

You never know what to expect from their blog, because well, even they don’t know why in the first place did they turn up here :-P They write, because there is nothing else to do. Not that they write worthless, every-one has their own style; but you sometimes relate to them and sometimes you go, “whaaaaa?” They write for themselves, don’t think twice before uploading anything; But yea, their spirit simply rocks and others await their comments on their blogs coz well, you never know which new angle they might explore :-D

*~* the Reader Sustainers [RSs]

Diametrically opposites of the WWs. Their posts are consistent, that’s like the perfect way to describe them. Come what may, they manage to entertain the reader and make the best of fan-following. They are prolly the assets of blogger and people can never have enough of them. They don’t care if new readers come, if a good discussion happens, they are happy with even 5 comments.

*~* the Reader Gatherers [RGs]

Ah! They might not write for others, but need that constant buzz on their blog. They don’t post very often, coz they want people to digest each post before they throw a new lot of gossip on them. They hover around on blogger-world commenting on random blogs as they want them to come back and pass their opinions. In short, they are comment obsessive and do not post anything new till a particular number is attained. Nothing wrong, do as you please, but care for at least ‘some’ readers….

*~* the Daily Ranters [DRs]

With a new post almost everyday, their blog is a daily dairy. They cite incidents, pass-on experiences and provide lukkha people with something to read and think about. Their mood reflects on their blogs and well, you can easily relate to them. Nice, warm, realistic people; I like :-)

*~* the Popular chicks and chickoos [PCs]

Oh! They hit headlines for every small big thing they do! You want them to grace your blog by their presence and if you get an entry in their blog-roll, you have achieved that ambition of being on blogger :-P Not their fault, is it? Controversies, all the time; attention grabbing capacity, yea yea; comments ki barsaat, yea baby; :-D The celebrity blogs we come across now-a-days included.

*~* the Brain cell Activators [BAs]

They are different from RSs as they do not necessarily post stuff that other would keep others entertained, but they definitely write for others. They make us scratch our heads to give a worthy enough answer, giving us good enough reason to use our rusted brains. They are sane and smart and witty, awesome company for discussions. One problem with them though, they ask too many questions :-P


Well, I used to wonder, why do people come to a website and put out everything they have in their brain and hearts out in the open. Well, now I know. Because it feels good! Whatever be it, the spirit of blogging rocks and the current state of blog-world is perfect. I just hope all the hype doesn't spoil it.

Hail bloggers!


As far as 'I' am concerned,

I guess I have shades of all, but prominently am a WW :-D and yes, I agree with people who say that the content quality on my blog has deteriorated because of my professional writing ventures, but, is my blog about the quality of my content? It is about my mode of expression, period.

Are there any other categories that you can think of? Something distinct that has not been covered?

What category do you fall under?


P.S. Ganpati bappa has come home and I am ecstatic! Happy Ganesh Chathurti. :-)

I fall in the group which is I guess not mentioned here.
ie
The one who write only to write and not for others to read. ;)

Express said...

@ sutta
haha, WW?

aree bahuutt categories hai, just trying 2 make groups :-D

and btw, when d u plan 2 write nxt?
*waiting*

Alok said...

I don't believe in categorising myself. I might belong to many of the ones you mentioned here. Maybe you can suggest where you think I belong.

And yes, Happy Ganesh Chaturthi to you.

Arv said...

hiya...

I would raise my hand for all those first set of questions :)

Sach! said...

``Opening the blogs
Yep!!
``Analyzing situations on my blogs
koi shaq...
``Get worried because some friend had a sad post

``Thinking about some comments/posts and start laughing
Ask my friends..they know it all...
``Attached to blog-mates
U dare doubt!!!

I come into:
WWs whose happy even without comments(mostly!)
DRs who write for my ownself(often!)
And blog on! yeh hai waqt ka ishaara ;)

(btw I too categorize everything :P)

well, every category has its own positives yaar...Thr is no category tht shud b looked up or down upon. Thats the last thing I would want people to make out of this post.

Every1 has their style and I have just made some analysis, might even be pointless :-P Feel free, u r at a WWs :-D

Express said...

@ Ashish
LOL! firstly, welcome 2 my blogey!

But u don't get the honor..coz..
1. I decide w/e I have to do on my blog :-D
2. I don't wanna lose the celebrity status by blog-rolling common-men :-D
3. My blog-roll is not a record of the blogs I keep track of, Its a list for my good blog-buds :-)

Anyways, thanks for the visit. :-)

Urv said...

:)

Hmm.. I think it would be better for someone else to judge my category.. U may do the honors.. :) But I blog mainly to express my opinion, to pen down the trivial memories of life, make friends, and try to make people smile a bit on the way..

Anindita said...

Hmmm!! Notes to self:

* Sutta has stopped reading my blog.
* Samby has declined me permission to his blog
* My blog quality is declining miserably.
* Should kill Sutta and ask Samby to like move on! (The stud doesn't know how bad the women would like to hit on him!!)
* Ganpati Bappa came to my place as well.
* Am waiting fervently for Durga Puja so I can meet you. :D
* I still don't know what category I fall under, can you enlighten me????

Anindita said...

@ Samby

I want to read as well!! Mind doing the honours?????!!!!!!
