Its The Comments, Not The Blog

Over the last few months I have heard this from many a friend.

"Dude, I have been reading your blog. Its fun. But the comments are the best part man!"

HeartCurry hit one year about a week ago. Wow! One year. The baby is a year old. I wont go about blabbing how I have evolved as a blogger and how my posts are more mature now and that the female audience find me all irresistible after reading the posts. No, I promise I wont say all that.

Its a year now and I dont know why I am blogging. It aint no purpose, it aint no passion. I aint no writer. And then someone drops a comment saying, "Haha, that was hilarious. Made my day." And that in turn makes my day! Perhaps, at the end of a stressful day I provided comic relief to someone, somewhere, with the dog bit my arse and I wore my shirt inside-out story.

Most important, its helped me build a little community. Some of them I knew before, some I came to know over the last year, and surprisingly most of them, I have never met. Its the few people whose blogs I visit, whose comments I reply to, everyday.

Thank You for reading and thank you for commenting on HeartCurry. And I promise more torture coming your way.

Your blogs are always fun to read..although its just been only 2 or 3 weeks since i have started reading yours.

And yes, its REALLY the comments. They are just hillarious. I mean the ones written by you. Cracks me up ALL THE TIME! Fantastic sense of humor i must say, which might be an understatement!

Anyways, keep writing hon. =)

There, its so difficult to express emotions over the web. I really meant that. And I thought as much that people wont believe it, but then, if u mean it, say it. So I did. Now I get gaali galoch. :(

If u wish, I can swear over my laptop.... or whatever you wish.

the comments are good for a reason, bcoz of presence of great personalities like bird, abhi, idea, madame, medha and yours truly... also comments are made hilarious because of non-existent bloggers like baangdu and pals... and you have no thanksgiving for them... tch tch... you are such a #$#$@#@#@@$@$#@#@#@...

but seriously... heartcurry is dhammal.. and haan... pls ignore bird's comment... he thinks he is not going to survive for more than a week...

Blogger APOO said...

Bird, I so expected that comment from you. And now ou can so NOT expect a PDA cover!!! :P

Iyer: I said thanks to those who read my blog. Pals reads my blog. So does baangd. Only his short term memory will make him say he does not.

Thanks Smithy. Till Gujjus live, soogery posts will be on! And ignore Bird. Till Bird lives, I have a reason to blog.

Medha: Now you sound sarcastic.

Blogger APOO said...

Ahhhh... thank you Smithy! Hum khush hue.

Iyer, how long can a domain name be? How about www.myblogreadersstolemymatch.com

October 20, 2005 1:24 AM  
Blogger iyer education said...

arey arey... chal theek hai yaar... what if somebody steals your match... it gives us another reason to drink daru... and dont you worry... bird always has a pocketful of matches that he always carries with him... so you know whom to contact if you lose one match (i know i know... bad joke)

but seriously you can name it www.joshilay.com where joshi can get lay(d) ;)

Hey Apoo,

Wishing your Blog a Very Happy Birthday!!!

And sure do hope to read more of your (funny) future endeavors in your blog.

And also its fun seeing the "coffee - toffee" fight between you and Sharma.

Blogger APOO said...

Hmmm... Iyer, good idea.

Medha, long story, I will have to keep writing all my life if I were to explain that.

Smithy, good idea. Now just convince Iyer. Everything has to go through his approval.

Anon: I think yours was the best! appufinduapappu. HAHAHAHA!!

Amri, next post is on you!

Congrats on the anniversary; and awwww, do i see u getting senti there? :-) Anyways, since it IS an anniversary post, lemme just add my two bits: I started reading ur blog sometime back, and got terribly hooked to even read many many old posts even. Hilarious, or serious, u write very well - and since u aint a writer, as confessed, I guess its a natural talent.

Well, enuff of senti stuff now...back to reading about Madame Desi in ur office asking for ur banana ;-P
