Moved my blog to Asif.me, please take a look. All my thoughts are going to be posted there from now on.
This was my first blog I started, I remember the day of 17th July 2007 when I was sitting on in dad’s office and trying to decide where should I start my blog, blogspot.com or wordpress.com.
I wasn’t thinking of functionality at that time, I was just thinking which one sounds cool. I would say it out loud and introduce my blog to virtual people around me like
“Hi, you can check out my blog at asiogroup.blogspot.com”
then I would say
“Hi, you can check out my blog at asiogroup.wordpress.com”
I did that for a few times and still wasn’t sure which one to pick up, so I browsed a few blogs on both the platforms, in just 5 minutes, the blogs on WordPress were too good in comparison to the Blogspot.
It took me a few minutes to finally set up my blog, I blame that to the shitty internet connection, perhaps slower than 99% of the world’s internet connection speed. Yes, in 2007, India picked up the speed a little late, and there is still this bloody ‘FUP’ But that’s a story for some other day.
Now that the blog was ready, I couldn’t have shared the links of an empty blog so it was time to think of what to write.
10 minutes of staring the screen, I didn’t write a word (I didn’t know it was called writer’s block though I didn’t even got started)
Then it struck me somewhere in my head that one of my friends was arguing with me the other day something about Burj-al-Arab not being the only 7-star hotel in the world. I told him that it was, but he wasn’t in a mood to agree with me.
So, I wrote about it.
and haven’t stopped since then.
Though I do not write here anymore, I have other blogs where I share my knowledge. Two years ago I took a step to cut down my blog to half and now I have very few. I stopped asif.me as well and it has been acquired by another Asif. Good to know there are many other Asifs in the world.
As for this Asif, it will always be Me. Maybe I’ll keep coming back and write about life, there is so much to share after all.
But one needs time for that, which is quite a commodity for me which I can not afford right now. Let’s meet some other day, with some other story.
