Hello, we meet again…

February 10, 2009

I am not new to the world of blogging. In fact, I am as old as one gets as a blogger within my own social circle, which might not be saying much. And yet, I can hardly boast of the web presence of those who’ve been ‘around’ for this long in blog-dom. This was a deliberate exercise in effacing myself from the public domain, for I maintained a personal blog. As a window into my personality, my vulnerabilities and my quirks, I chose to share it strictly among friends and shunned unwelcome company, especially if they happened to be folks I know in the real world but not in a terribly intimate manner.

Over the past few years, I’ve been drawn increasingly to the idea of issue-based blogging, rather than merely personal or topical blogging. This blog would be open to debates and discussions and readership by all. I kept myself in a quagmire, trying to figure out whether to set up my own domain (which remains sadly neglected) or whether to combine issue-based blogging into my personal journal – but I didn’t want not-so-close friends to be updated on the nitty-gritties of my life.  Amidst all this vacillation, many years went by and many passionate posts full of opinions and debate points never saw the light of day. I have now finally decided to do something that is bound to be very tough – maintaining this blog where I can write about things beyond myself while also writing up my personal journal to keep my friends posted of my whereabouts and exploits.

And thusly, here goes nothing…
