Ever since I began to blog, the gray on my head has been expanding at a rather alarming rate. If this continues, before long I’d have a sparkling white thatch sitting atop a youngish face, and this catastrophe would’ve been brought about by the decisions that I must make to continue being a blogger.
Among my bigger blogging decisions is “what should I blog about?”
I know it comes easy for some bloggers, or how could they end up blogging twice, even three-times a day? Those are the bloggers I hope to emulate, they are the ones who I put on the burnished-to-a-blinding-shine pedestal that I reserve for my Gurus, and yet, despite having observed them for the last six months, I am no closer to discovering a solution to my decision making problem.
Every morning, I wake up early, switch on the computer, and vow that I’d write a post on my blog, but before I even type the first letter of the first word in that scary white box titled “Add New Post” I must decide upon a topic. And that’s where I experience an unsurmountable Blogger’s-Block (BB)!
Right now, among the topics that are milling against one another, trying to get my attention, three have been rather successful. These three are listed below.
- Should I write about Twitter’s momentous decision of replacing their rusty old stars with brand-new, strawberry-red, skipping and dancing Twitter-hearts, and talk about how for my friend Chandraketu, a little red heart changed into a menacing skull symbolizing hazard and danger?
- Should I post about the goofy look that permeates wifey’s features when she looks at Salman Khan hosting Bigg Boss 9 and its connection with her sudden urge to buy an Oppo Smartphone!
- Should I talk about the fascinating pro-male festival of Karvachauth and ad (a rather “revealing” one,) that reminded me of the Karvachauth battle that had raged in our home ten years ago?
I have a feeling that each of these three ideas have the potential of winning the Idea-Supremo contest. For now, as Salman Khan says in Bigg Boss 9, I’ve put these three ideas in the frying pan. I’ll let them fry until the next post, when it would be decided who gets picked up for the post…(Who knows it could be a fourth, totally new idea, a wild-card entry?!
Until then, do whatever you want to do friends, and do double, but don’t cause any trouble!
Translating the Indian to Phoren (Foreign – or in this case, English)
- Chandraketu: Just a nice but somewhat uncommon name for boys, it means: Light of the Moon.
- Bigg Boss 9: The Indian version of the Big Brother reality show. It’s hosted by Salman khan, one of the biggest Stars in Bollywood.
- Karvachauth: A Hindu festival celebrated by married women with a goal to ensure long-lives for their husbands. (An excellent cause – but the women must not eat nor drink anything from the time they wake up, until late in the evening when they’ve seen the moon.)
