Scratch A Rock

Meta-blogging?

Posted in Miscellany by Bharat Iyer on April 21, 2010

Maintaining a blog with a fledgling, faceless, nameless, drifting readership poses a strange problem. Apart from the slightly disheartening feeling one allays by telling one’s self that it’s a matter of time, there is also the fact that you can’t really address anyone; what do you say when no one’s listening? You can’t say something very personal because you never know who might be eavesdropping. But anything else, anything of substance, feels stupid – like standing on a soapbox and making proclamations in a ghost town.

So what am I going to do then? Write a blog post about how difficult it is writing a blog post, of course.

    You say whatever comes to mind. And you blog regularly.

    Don’t worry about readers, kid. They’ll come.

      Whoa, high praise.

      And there’s Orson Welles clapping!

      [I feel so cultured at having recognized him. I haven’t seen Citizen Kane though.]
