Personal diary...

Apart from this 'public' blog, I used to write a personal diary, not giving anybody any sort of access to its contents. I used to write basically my mind in my diary, all those things that I cant/dont like to share with anyone.
I started writing way back in 1995 or 1997(cant remember exactly when) for a couple of years. Then I stopped for a while and again resumed in 2003. (Actually I had stopped for 'quite a while'- 5 years is not a short break). Since then, I have been filling pages after pages of my 'mindwork' daily(just makes me appreciate my patience and my handwriting!!). I havent let anyone read(although my brother has tried to read a few lines). I havent found the time to read it either.
I have tried reading my previous year's diaries, but when I read, it only makes me feel that I have written in such a kiddish manner! So, I tried bringing some maturity into it.

People have told that its a good habit to write and I know it too. But its just that I have suddenly started feeling that I need to stop writing.
Reason: 'I' dont read, neither would I want anyone read, then why write? (The fact that it took so many years for me to realize this, comes to me as a surprise!)
It has been atleast a month since I wrote anything.
What say?

It's an interesting thought that you would never want to read what you wrote. Seeing the way life is progressing of late, all i can say is that we are all definitely headed towards capturing more and more of us. We would definitely want to know what we were thinking about when we were 15. Maybe it will help u identify with your kids later on.. Who the hell knows?
I say one should keep a track of their lives. However you want to do that. Through pictures, through words, through video. The rush of feelings you undergo when you look at the old stuff. It is like reliving life.
No, I am not 40 years old and undergoing a midlife crisis! :) Just gave this a lot of thought myself and felt like you wouldn't mind my 2 cents! :D

I think it is good to write, at least it will help to review what we have done on that day...

something like review the code, which we have written.. we would have done many mistakes... but it may help to avoid those in future...

What do u say?

btw it is just my personal opinion.

Hey I normally don’t read blogs and I was never interested to. But one of my Peers always says that u have many ideas and put them in a blog it will find its shape some day... I realize how imp it is and effect it is. Your blog on Writing have impressed me so much. It drives me to start giving a try. I feel this is one of the best and effective ways of self realization.

Having said that your blog turned out to be a eye opener for me. Let me start my own blog..I invite you to visit and post your thoughts.
