Hello!

Dude, seriously, are these supposed to be FAQs?

While the tone might suggest that, I would rather call it Qs. Because no one really asked me these, forget frequently. And I decided to do these Qs for some additional entertainment on this blog, for which I am usually awarded with, wait, nothing. Not even comments or a hello. But I am doing it anyway, out of the goodness of my heart. Also, this is going to be on my ‘ello page. Just that any updates there do not show up on the reader, so I came up with this brilliant idea of making it a post first. I know, clever me.

Really?  What are you about to tell us we don’t know already?

Ooh, lots of things. First of all, the fact that I am now 31. If you see the last ‘About me’ update, I was yet to turn 30, so this counts as news boss. Yes, I agree that I had already referenced this thing in my last post but somehow people did not catch the hint and wish me enough. So I am trying it again. So for all of you reading this today (11/12/13), I just turned 31, 3 weeks ago. And we are still accepting wishes. And gifts.

 I don’t have time to read your blog. So can you give me a gist of what you write about?

Stuff. Important stuff, I would say. Stuff that matters to the common man, stuff that can change the way you think, stuff that will want you return and read through all the archives, because it just adds so much value to your life. I can give you examples. I talk about things like how I put on weight, or how I lost it, and how I hate it, and how my 2 year old sprouted new teeth, and how I think it’s ok to watch Roadies even Splitsvilla but not Big Boss, and how it totally makes sense to record and watch Master Chef Australia and hate anyone who tells you who was eliminated that week before you have seen it, or about how women with skinny legs should be banned, but that would mean banning the whole world except for me? That kind of stuff. Like I said, important stuff.

Why do you do this?

This blog? Out of the inherent goodness of my heart. Hey wait, I just said that right? But that’s true. And for my readers. You may not believe me, but I have some. You for example. I do it for you. Eh, who am I kidding. It is mostly ‘cos I have the time, resources, energy, and this is free.

There is no theme to this blog. Why is there no theme to this blog?

Ofcourse there is a theme! What do you mean there is no theme? I am the theme. That might have come out as extremely self-involved and self-centered, but then that you know already.

Oh, so ‘You’ are the theme, but there is really nothing of a value add right? What do you hope to gain out of this whole thing?

Fun. This I am being very sincere about. I find writing all this so much fun. So much so, sometimes I am generally looking at things and thinking how they would sound in words. Like I had almost decided to do a post titled ‘There’s a pigeon in my AC window’ today, just because, there is. There is a pigeon and a nest and lots of tiny baby pigeons creating a ruckus every morning in my AC window, and I had nothing else to say about it but I thought that and I wanted to write a post with that as the title. It’s just fun. No?

Fun for you, you mean. But tell me honestly, you really think anybody else cares?

Ah well. If you’re here, and you have read this till now, I am assuming you do. Also, that hurt, just so you know.

Ok fine, enough with the drama. How do you want to conclude this?

I will say what I said before I guess. If you’re here, do come again. If possible, say hello. If you like anything, let me know. If you don’t, let me know anyway (or don’t. I don’t take criticism very well, and then I will not publish your comment and you will go all ‘Ooh look she publishes only the good stuff’ on me, and then I will not publish that either, and basically there is no point. Ok, on second thoughts, let me know, but politely). And always, always stick to the most important and basic rule of this blog.

Be Nice.

    Hey DI,
    I just happened to stumble upon your blog page some months ago and read the ‘About Me’ section that said “What will you know about me from here that you wouldn’t from the blog”, and then I started reading your blog. As you had rightly said, the ‘About Me’ section is pretty much all you have blogged about, but it’s very nice to see a good little summary of it in this section :)). On another note, I love all your blogposts, they are simple and general, mostly about nothing particular, but they contain so much life in them. It is very nice to read them. Keep blogging 🙂

      Oh, sorry. That wasn’t ‘About Me’, that is your profile description, that still remains. I tried, but I am not able to delete the comment I posted. You can do away with posting it :). Nonetheless, your blog is really very interesting

      • DI says:

        😀 Why would you delete that!

        Thanks and welcome to the page Ridhi. I got bored of the About me page and so changed it. I will do it once a year I think! So I am glad you visited the old one too 🙂
