Blogging - The Genesis


I am nearing the completion of the 7th year of my blogging. Over these years I have made so many friends. One of them is Saravana Kumar Murugan who blogs at Few Miles. He is celebrating completion of 5 years of his blogging journey and he asked me to write a guest post for him, one of the rare requests I have received in my 7 years. So here goes - the tale of how it all started - the tale of Genesis of blogging.

This was a long time ago. A very long time ago! There were people then and people now. But all that people then did was going to office. Every day they got up in the morning, brushed their teeth, finished their morning ablutions, had breakfast and went to office. From morning to evening, they slogged and came back home, tired. Waiting for them at home, was this small box, made especially for idiots. It held them glued till they feel asleep. Next morning they got up, again brushed their teeth, finished their morning ablutions, had breakfast and went to office. So their life went on and on, never ending in its drudgery.

Some of the people tired of their wretched lives escaped from the concrete jungles into the mazes of imagination and prayed. They did severe penance for years and years till finally the Great God Intahnato appeared before them. They told Him their tale of woe and sought salvation. He thought for a while and then said, “Let there be blogs.” And then there were blogs. Over the next five days, the God worked without rest – creating blogs of every genre – tech blogs, fashion blogs, satire blogs, travel blogs, literary blogs. On the seventh day, tired after his toil, He sat down to rest. As He rested He broke out into a song.

This little piggy went to market,
This little piggy stayed home,
This little piggy had roast beef,
This little piggy had none,
And this little piggy cried wee wee wee all the way home

Now that was a fabulous post, TF. Showing us the mirror, I'd say. I didn't know that you were open to writing Guest posts or I'd have asked you a long time ago. :)

It was my pleasure, SIS.

Thanks, Rachna. Glad you enjoyed my take.

Kind of you to mention you might have asked me for a guest post if you had known I was open.

Your pseudonym seems to have undergone a metamorphosis while I was sleeping away from the Blogsphere. But as the bard has said, a rose with any name smells as sweet. The genesis of blogging was written in a way only you could have written. It has always been a pleasure to read your work.

Yeah - umashankar. Isn't change the only constant in life? I am glad you liked my work.
