My blog is 1 year old

I celebrated my blogs anniversary on the 30th November 09 but kept awfully busy the next 15-20 days so could not get time to even celebrate this glorious moment.

Through the year I have got a lot of encouragement not only from fellow bloggers but also from the public at large – folks who do not know me and still care to read my writing and comment on it from across the world.Cheers !

Actually the people I know including some who claim to  be quite close have been a big disappointment but it doesn’t matter.

Few numbers just for the heck of it  :

1. Total number of hits – 33349

2.Visitors from across the globe as per clustermaps

3.Google page rank of 2 ( not too impressive but not too bad either for a personal blog)

4.Alexa rating of 3.5

5. 47th rank among all blogs posted by Indiblogger a forum for Indian blogs

6.I have a total of 210 posts in 6 categories and 416 comments

7.Last but not the least the value of my blog is $ 1175.00 , so I can sell it for Rs 50000 to anyone of you ( if you want that is)

Well what do I say ? its a great feeling – something I created ,something my very own ,something very personal has taken a form that not only acts as a sounding board but is also a true and original friend.

Today I promise my blog that I will come back to it at least once a week and post something.I have stopped looking at the stats anyways so it is easier now.

We insure your blog

This is what Wikipedia has to say about personal Blogs :

Personal bloggers usually take pride in their blog posts, even if their blog is never read by anyone but them. Blogs often become more than a way to just communicate; they become a way to reflect on life or works of art. Blogging can have a sentimental quality.

It adds citing from research of an independant firm :

There are more than 200 million former bloggers who have ceased posting to their online diaries, creating an exponential rise in the amount of “dotsam” and “netsam” — that is to say, unwanted objects on the Web

I know your patience is running  out so I will come to the point.Let us say that you are a very passionate blogger and your blog is your way of telling yourself that I live and not just exist.You have poured your heart out and spent hours and hours posting quality content that you really identify with.People have responded not only with mere comments but now you have a family of fellow bloggers who are used to your posts popping up every now and then.

Suddenly it all goes blank :

1.Someone has hacked your blog

2.You had a terrible fight with your mate and the best revenge is to press the delete blog link.Simple.

3.You have been away or you hurt your finger so you could not post for a while.With so much content on blogs jamming the servers(I am talking another 5 years),a automatic code decides to delete unwanted “dotsam”.They already do it to a number of unused email accounts so I am not talking air.

4.You died.Sorry but that’s always a possibility.That’s why we have life insurance.Right?

5.There are a 101 other ways in which your blog can get affected – litigation,stalling,abusive content,intimidation,copyright issues,ideas getting copied and stolen,poetry being used as lyrics without you getting the cut.You can check out wiki for a list.

Apart from you there could be other stakeholders just like in any other insurance – your family members,your friends,your grandchildren.After all we are talking about a legacy,a lifetime of written word,thoughts,emotions………your life’s emotional savings.And they are all gone just because a stupid set of commands thinks that you don’t deserve to be citizen of blogo sphere.Shame!

So what we offer to you is a lifetime and beyond of happy blogging.Your blog is protected and guarded against all evil and it will be there till the ball of mud circles the ball of fire.You will be heard in  this life or the next.It’s our promise.

What you need to do ?Nothing really – just click on our link below and for as low as $ 5 per year we will Insure your blog and protect it against all harm.Interested ?

If you think that this makes sense please comment on why you think so?If you think I’ve lost it please share your thoughts as to why it does not make any sense 🙂

We had a debate between bloggers and lesser humans so I thought I will go back to them with a vengeance  tommorow.

$ 5 is nothing when compared to 7 lives of peaceful blogging.Isn’t it??
