The problem with blogging December 13, 2006

Posted by Sharath Rao in blogging, humor.

…is that it increases the probability of such conversations.

Me : Cmon yaar, its been quite a while we havent talked.

Friend : Yeah I know. But I read your blog regularly and so I dont feel that we havent been in touch.

which extrapolates to – if you keep blogging, we may never ( have to ) talk again.

The Scottish philosophers certainly didnt get it wrong.

you broke your promise of no external links with this wikipedia link!!!!

I hear ya. It’s not restricted to blogging. Back when I actually made an effort to stay in touch with people (I don’t anymore) I used to write long mails to everyone – not many replied. And the ones that did reply used to write something like:
“Hi, I’m fine. Good to hear from you. *insert one line reply to something I asked* Keep in touch. Bye.”
And when I met them… just replace ‘blog’ with ‘mail’ in your sample conversation and you’ve got it.

btw, what happened to the moratorium? πŸ™‚

Deepak, trust you to spoil the party….

@achala – I have had similar experiences with long mails except that I wouldnt go as far to say “(I dont anymore)” ….I think my mails are as much for my record as to convey information/connect with ppl etc.

that link was totally unintended……yet another example of the law of unintended consequences. …Searching for a link to prove your point has become a way of life ( unlike in old days the eldest man/lady at home was the gospel) …

Sharath… That conversation seemed familiar to me.. Overheard something like that recently πŸ˜‰

@rajaram :

To the best of my knowledge, overhearing conversations doesnt include those that involve oneself.
