"Warning: Blogs can be read!"

For the past 2 weeks, I have come to realise, people are READING my blogs! The freaky part is, they are not the faceless, nameless entities of cyberspace, but people I know… from college, and they usually come up to me and say, “Hey, Shruti, you have a blog!”
“Uhhuh.. Yeah I use it to rant about my pathetic little life.. Do you MIND?” Unfortunately, sometimes it IS the people I write about! Hey, I always name that good guys. If you have your name in my blog, that’s a honour! You MUST be happy with the portrayal, nah?
I have also realised that Google has a massive crawler! Type certain keywords & “Random Jottings” turns up, and that includes names (Hmm! You know who I am talking about if you’re reading this! I DID say great things about you…) Hey, but it’s all peachy.
Why do I Blog?
My blogs at a certain time reflect my mindset at that juncture… I do not carry grudges to the grave. The blog is simply an outlet for pent-up steam and a very effective one at that.. (Warning: Blatant Product Placement!)
Here are the testimonials of some people who blogged…
Blog for your health!!!
Xavier Marquess (25, Male) “I was a 90 pound weakling! Then I started a blogspot addy and 2 months later, I am still a 90 pound weakling. But now, I can sure spell well and I have a job at a typewriting institute! Thank you Blogger.com.”
Blog to meet new friends!!!
Virginia Vixen (18, Female) “I was always a shy girl with big geeky glasses and itchy mouse-fingers. But after starting to blog, I’ve realised that my pathetic life is actually APPEALING to my readers! Thanks to blogger.com, I’ve met other people of my ilk!”
Blog for Wealth!!!
Lionel Dumbell (56, male) “I was a no-good loafer who did not want to work. After registering for a blogspot address that I never use, I have an excuse for not working. I am blogging… and they pay me for each person who views the site. I’ll get around to it tomorrow. *yawn*”
Blog to blog about blogs!!!
Shruti George (20, female) “I made you all read a blog about a blog, right? How cool is THAT??!”
