BLOGGING -- The in-thing
The new mantra…the “in thing” with Gen-Y
Not limited by the gender or age
Just like the teens, the celebrities and others got addicted to its usage.
Blogs are usually maintained by an individual
With regular entry and commentary,
Descriptions of events, graphics or videos
And with many more aided by the blessings of twenty first century
Blogs are a means of expressing otherwise remained “frozen thoughts”
They serve as the platform to unleash the creative genius
Imagine throwing a little stone into a still pond and watch the ripples
The cause is negligible but not the impact
Self power is true power and here there is a place for unrestricted and unconditional expression
But if left unchecked and untapped this free expression can orchestrate in creating unpleasant and uncalled for situations.
Not just for ourselves but for others
Caught in the whirlpool of modern flux
Let’s not confuse the modernity with audacity
Sense and sensibility both are prerequisites of humanity.
