This is a self referential blog about itself.
The Hindu, dated May 1 2005, published an article "The essence of blogging "which muses upon the new rage that's called blogging.
Here is an excerpt :
"Blogger doesn't have a waiting audience and isn't paid to write. Blogger writes because she discovered something that she's simply bursting to share. Blogger is under no pressure to write about something else tomorrow, or to write at all. Blogger writes simply because she feels like it. Reader feedback is immediate. There's no waiting for the issue to go to press and feedback arriving in the mail. This absence of pressure allows Blogger to explore both her writing skills and technical mastery."
