As most of you may have already noticed, Blogger has added a new feature called Followers. While it's quite fascinating, I'm not going to enable the Followers list in my blog, cos I don't want to display 100+ followers on my profile page :). It just makes my blog look like a fuckbook *ooops! facebook* profile and makes it all messy and bossy. To me, blogging is a personal journey and that doesn't have to make me feel like I'm God with a bunch of devotees. But that's just me...you may do what you like. What does the term 'followers' mean to you?
Some of so called I'll-be-there-for-u-til-ur-last-breath kind of friends don't even stop by my blog anymore. LOL! They are everywhere else in Blogville except in mine. Nah, it doesn't bother me anymore like it used to, relax. But what's really funny is how they were so 'drama' with their friendship talk to me, and how they just suddenly dropped me like a hot potato. I can't stop laughing. No, friendship isn't about commenting in one another's blogs or just about words...but it definitely can be felt in the vibes you give out to that other person, in the things you do and don't do. What does 'friend' mean to you?
What you see in Blogville is what you get. Meaning, if someone gives you I-don't-think-I-wanna-know-u-anymore kind of vibes, then that's what it really is. I only wish for a BLOCK feature from Blogger, where I can ban certain readers from my blog for good, so that I know that they will never see my posts. Blogging is like Gardening...cos you pour your heart out in the open to teach and learn at the same time, and see the fruits of wisdom growing...so there must be a way to keep the weeds and pests off too. What does 'blogging' mean to you?
This week I have been feeling so low that I almost came close to saying Goodbye to Blogville. Nah I'm not trying to get attention here, I'm just telling you the truth. I realised that some people reading my blog (not all!), are spies...spies who try to stir issues and split people up. Even when there's no issues between me and another blogger, some people just want to break us up. I don't understand why people keep saying they are good people but don't really do any good to others. Why can't people be happy when there's a great friendship blossoming? Selfish motives? Maybe. I have been the victim of many such dirty work of unhappy people, which ended in scarred relationships with people that don't deserve it. What does 'goodness' mean to you?
I know some people hate my guts. Well I'm glad about that cos that means I hit them in the right spots. As humans, we don't always agree and we don't have to. We are all different, and we can be quite civil with it all and just agree to disagree, and move on. But disagreeing doesn't mean mudslinging that other person, does it? Disagreeing means not agreeing on the issue at hand, not the person. We all have varying theories on almost everything. Opinions clash but that doesn't have to lead to name-calling. Often I have come across people who read my posts and 'judge' my person instead of the post. It's either they are too lazy to read the post or they are just out to criticise me 24/7. I really don't care if they agree with me or not *I'm not here to please the entire Earth's population*, but it would be good if people can read the post before commenting on it, and yes I welcome constructive criticism *and on the post please, not on my entire person, family, location and life!*. What does 'opinion' mean to you?
Now that I have blogged for about 4yrs, it makes me wonder about all the great lessons I have learnt and all the wisdom it has added to my being. It all happened cos I was willing to lose my privacy at the hope of finding my reality. Guys, I'm not a machine...I hope I'm allowed some downtime too? And when I'm happy I write gentle posts...when I'm angry I write horrible posts. No matter what, I did it my way. And yes, I scored big time *in knowledge and honesty terms* and I'm glad I didn't hesitate to connect and be very open with everything I wrote here. I realised that that can only happen if you're willing to do it too. Meaning, if you show your real face and if you look with your naked eyes, you will see everything clearer than you would with a mask on. You can't drive a car without passing an Eye test can ya. You need to disclose yourself to uncover the truth, to clear the fog. What does 'vision' mean to you?
You may add your own revelations about Blogville and any questions that you may have. I'd like to know. This is Blogville...this is where we come to learn, grow and practice harmony...not animosity. It's not a place to spark competition or hatred. This world needs unity, not anymore division than it has already. As much as I get 100s of comments in my blog, I'm not here for that or for killing time. I'm here for a purpose...to express, to spread knowledge, to learn and to connect. Let's draw love-hearts, not borders. Let's make our personal journey a happy, peaceful, safe and an enlightening one to all, not just by words but also by our actions. Even if I leave this space today, I know my spirit shall live here forever...and I shall carry your's with me forever. Ciao!
