I just decided something! I am going to write a blog series and improve my liking for writing. Since I’ll be obliged to post a chapter everyday, I’ll somehow find my interest in writing again.
I don’t know how successful this is going to be, but I know that I have free time until fifteenth of this month, because I’m leaving town on sixteenth. I have to join TCS on eighteenth (my birthday!) and so I need a day to get adjusted in Chennai, the place where I have been asked to report at.
Since I have all the time until sixteenth of this month, one part of my brain asks me “why shouldn’t I channel all my thoughts into a pretty story?” Although, there’s always the other part of my brain that loves to drag me away from this. Anyway, I’ll try to write again is what I’m trying to say.
I designed a webpage layout today, finally, after the wonderful couple — Mr. HTML and Ms. CSS — helped me out! It wasn’t bad. All these days, I had been thinking to learn that, but it looks like there’s not much learning needed to design a simple layout. All you have to do is, code your heart out with all the columns you want to include and all the other blocks you want to be displayed and eventually take a look at your webpage after your coding is done and edit it if something goes wrong. Simple, really.
I feel stupid now, because I had been postponing such a fun task all these days… and I thought I’ll have trouble remembering the tags… what had I been thinking? It was fun working with Mr. HTML. He helped me out just like any best friend would. And Ms. CSS was really enthusiastic about my new-found inspiration and wanted my design to look the best and lent me all the cooperation she could offer. Both the celebrities remained humble all the while, though. 😀
Maybe I’ll get acquainted with their other friends, too. HTML and CSS seem wonderful when coupled together, but still, I’d like to learn everything there is. I wish to design blogger templates and wordpress themes and use them on my blog… if I really get better in it, that is.
Let’s see how far W3Schools can teach me about all the stuff I need to know. But I’d say that ‘coding’ never quite explains what ‘HTML’ and ‘CSS’ are like. When I did coding last time, it was in C++ and C. (But they’re my favorites, too). I don’t think I’ll like Java as much as C and C++, though. Now, it seems to me that I’m going to like nothing like creating a website myself. After all, in C and C++, I get a dull old MS DOS window to see the output, but here? It’s a different story altogether!
Blogging is a simple thing – login to wordpress, write whatever your fingers feel like typing, then hit ‘publish’. Simple enough.
But when I’m confronted with the question of why I own this beautiful space for myself, I find myself racking my brains for a proper answer. I had no ‘goal’ or any specific thing to tell the world about while starting this blog. All I knew was that I had to have a blog. Just because.
I knew I needed a voice that could be shared with a few invisible, existent people. I knew I liked to get comments and opinions. I knew I had to start a blog, or that particular thing would be left un-ventured in my life.
I googled up about the best free blogging platform, and when I knew no coding is necessary for creating a blog, and as it sounded simple as a pie, I created one. There was no major reason for me to have started it.
But now, I feel thankful for the idea because I now have my own space to share poems, my general opinions, pieces of my writings and whatnot. Blogging can actually help people learn to write in a professional manner, though I have yet to learn writing so. Since this is a personal blog, I never felt the need to actually be very professional and all, but many people might.
So, if you ask me why I need a separate space for myself in the cyber-world, I’d say, “But that’s the coolest thing ever, so why not?”
Why not, indeed?
