Will the bloggers ever grow?

As a blogger many a times I have committed the same mistake. Placing our own opinion highly and airing them freely as if the whole world is bothered and depends upon our single opinion or verdict.

Sometimes I feel that the blog world is full of spinsters and bachelors who are at the peak of their freedoms, showering their views and living their lives.

It is the world as viewed by an intolerant youth or an immature adult that is reflected here. At this point, I totally feel such a blogging is pointless and useless. If at all blogging will help in quality writing, will it serve some purpose. And now who cares to read this piece? :)

Please be prepared for counter views from me - maybe, will sound harsh to you.

You seem to have got the purpose of blog writing half.

The full picture is as under:

Blog writing is like essay writing in print or manuscript.

If you take an anthology of essays, you will get the categorisation of essays like the following:

Scientific - i.e on science subject. Essays from writers like Julian Huxley, Arthur Clark

Humourous - EV Lucas and others

Intelelctual - Russel, Churchil, Chesterton, Aldous Huxley and others

Personal - Rambling essays that come under your words:'PLACING OUR OPINION HIGHLY AND AIRING THEM FREELY AS IF THE WHOLE WORLD IS BOTHERED AND DEPENDS UPON OUR SINGLE OPINION OR VERDICT'

Essays by Lamb, Thomas Montagu, R.L.Stevenson, Orwell, and so many others.

Politics - anyone provided it is written beautifully.

(There are other categorisations too)

Against this background, it is your view expressed in this post that is immature.

The mature view is that, the blogosphere (or, to use your word, blog world) is free and boundless, accomodates anyone with any sort of views. The readership is far and wide: each blogger has their own quota of fans.

The readers can be eclectic: that is, he can pick and choose the blog he wants to follow and comment.

Personal blogs like the one I run, in

www.thirumullaivaayil.blogspot.com

is necessary to express our views - no matter what others think of them, or no matter what I myself think of them, should be there side by side with serious writing blogs that - has points and useful.

Here whether we 'place our opinion highly and freely and think the whole world is bothered about it' is irrlevant, as no reader is compelled to visit our blog and comment. It is like you, as a woman, dressing up and it is wrong on my part to think you do it to attract attention. You do it as a self-concept out of your own volition; and no one is asked to look at you. If they do, you cant do anything againt them; nor to stop dressing is against the principles of self-concept and self-esteem.

You tends to view things on utilatarian basis; and your act reminds me of the behaviour of Raguvaran in Samsaaram athu minsaaram:

He counts the number of milk tins his baby had consumed that month; and calculates the expenditure involved!

//nor to stop dressing is against the principles of self-concept and self-esteem.//

Read this sentence as under:

'Neither you need to stop dressing up as it is against the principles of self-concept and self-esteem'

Grammar should be minded, shouldn'be?

Please mind grammar in your blogposts too. I have found many.
