Unshackled Thoughts and Musings

Lately I've been having this overwhelming urge to write. Poetry? Prose? I don't know... Content? Fiction? Non-fiction? I'm not really sure... I do sit in front of my laptop for hours on end just strumming my fingers lightly over the keyboard. I do that sometimes, when I don't know what to write, yet the muse is shackled ever so slightly on my left shoulder. Never the right shoulder. I'm sure if she tries hard enough she could break free, but noooo.. She just sits there, quite happily restrained. Laughing. Then when the tapping of keyboard starts to bore me, I'd play around with a few sentences. Deleting them and start again. And so goes the process till I just close the document without saving. I like to write; I like to ramble about what ever tickles my fancy. Or scratches it, for that matter... Truth be told. I don't write hardly enough. So, pardon my ramblings, give me some space to clear the cobwebs out.

blogging vs social sites

I can see an interesting debate in the making, between Mr Zilla and Mr Source. One believes sites like facebook and twitter will ruin it for serious blogger, the other believes those sites are our weapons, not our enemies.

I find it hard to pick a side actually. Regarding the debate, not the people behind the debate. lol. I do think of myself as a blogger - try to, at least - but I also see the benefits of using social networking sites to promote one's blog and/or sites.

Apart from blogging, I'm also trying to use my facebook account (and the group application in particular) to promote my art and photography and poems. Though so far the goddesses of good luck and fortune ain't been on my side....

The upside of social networking sites is that attracts huge amounts of internet users. The downside, unfortunately, is exactly the same. So if you can direct all those users to your little corner of the world wide web, then good for you, you're on the upside part of things. Its just gonna take so much more effort and work to reach and redirect all those millions of people. And to keep em interested.

A challenge, anybody?

I'm not suffering from insanity, I'm enjoying every seconde of it...
