VERY Personal #Confessions (T&C), this “I” in “Me”.

People love confessions, don’t they? Can’t blame anyone, ’cause nothing makes me more excited than a friend confessing that he got beaten by a mob. The reason being him behaving inadequately being drunk, or possibly a friend getting slapped by a girl in public is even more awesome, especially if he weren’t the culprate. Sadly, I have never had a friend come and tell me something like this, but I’m pretty optimistic on some people in my knowledge getting assaulted by a mob. Best wishes to ’em.

Recently, a friend of mine pretty excitedly let me know that he proposed a girl, and that doesn’t really is an interesting story, ’cause everyone of us knew of some boring stuff going on, she expectedly said ‘yes’. So, I will not let this sweet ‘true love’ story ruin my blog post.

[Side notes 1: Sorry mate!]

I have this bad habit of running away from the topic, just to make a blog post long. If you have read my posts, I will talk a hell lot about things that don’t really matter, ’cause all the stuff that do matter don’t need a lot of talking to. Anyways, I won’t do the ‘running away’ in this post. Wait!

[Side notes 2: As I have told you earlier, Duolingo is a great app, but I hate it now. Being this much busy, I still take precious time off to log into the app, and learn French, and these guys, just don’t want to increase my fluency from 3%. All of us should start a #RahulKnowsFrench trend. If Sir S Bradley Stoner is reading this, and would like to comment again in French. I was just kidding. All is well.]**

Confessions – As you would have known from the heading itself, this is a VERY personal blog post. A post where I give away a part of me. Things even my closest peeps don’t know about me. Without wasting anymore time, let’s get my heart lighter. One sec! I forgot to tell you people something.

[Side notes 3: I have published more than a dozen posts on this blog, and “Incredible People: Rahul Singh” is still by far the most popular post of mine. Thanks to all my readers who hit that post, and this blog. #IAmThankful to all you people. I know I couldn’t have had a more honest title, even if the word “incredible” falls short to describe me properly. Anyways, I’m working on my vocabulary, I will find a better word soon. And, a friend let me know, that I need to choose better pics for such posts. Maybe, I will update the picture on that post this winter after a good bath, some sleep, escaping the sun, weight gain, a smile and probably in my favourite suit (Do I have one? I have a few blazers, alright)].

Oh! Did I tell you guys, I won’t talk about anything else then confessions in this post? And I am talking ’bout everything else. This is why people can’t take me seriously. No more getting distracted from the topic. Confessions – I was a kid, and… Actually, another thing you should know first. Pardon me one last time.

[Side notes 4: The day this post has been written (not published) – Novak Djokovic lost in the first round of the Monte Carlo masters. Mark this date (Oh! What’s the date?). Things like Novak Djokovic loosing doesn’t happen everyday. [Confession: I haven’t followed Tennis with any sincerity since 2009, but I read tweets making this being noted as a really surprising event. I have watched him play at times on TV though, he’s great. His win-loss record speaks]. Anyways, for the Cricket followers – Martin Guptil finally has an #IPL contract with Mumbai Indians coming in as replacement for the injured Lendl Simmons. The #WWE fans.. Sh*t! This is a confessions post. Sighs. Sorry.]

So, once I was a kid, and then I grew up. As a kid, I played Cricket in streets, and being grown up – I still play Cricket in the streets. Then I were single. Now, I am single. Then, I didn’t care about the world, now I pretend not caring. Then, I found myself being the center of jokes. Now, I am the one whose jokes “offends” everyone. A decade ago, I still had dreams. It’s 2016, and dreams are still alive. A kid, I never said “I love you”, a grown up, I still find the 3 words difficult to use. Hey! I at least don’t lie.

I wanted to update my G+ profile in April, 2016. wanting to write: “Hey! I’m Rahul Singh. I made a lot of mistakes in the past, but I have updated myself this February. So, if you got complaints against me from before 2016. Please don’t waste my time. I have already learnt my lessons. However, complaints relating to February and henceforth are still welcome. Ah! I still use to 2G – if you want to know, why I avoid videos.”

Do let me know if these are a good few words to make a bio.

I said this thing is about confessions, but I think that this post’s long enough to make you irritated. See you in the next “therapy session“. Bye. No! 1 minute please – as usual I would be checking the stats again. So, please do share. Actually, don’t share – I don’t care about shares, but do read this post till the END. Are you reading this? If not – you know what I will say – You S*ck. But, you read it, didn’t you?

*- Meet Mr. S Bradley Stoner. He knows Engish, French, Latin, Spanish, and still working on German. A scientist too. And, he writes and blogs. One LIFE is enough.

**– My fluency in French has now rocketed to 6%. Editing the post was an option, but why edit fun written stuff!

***- Using exclamations is not considered cool by professional editors.

P.S. – Only this week the publisher for this post came to know that P.S. meant Post Scriptum.

P.S.S – I still don’t know what this stands for.

Writing tip: Don’t use so many Is. It makes your writing look flawed. However, I myself can’t stop using the Is. You should though.

Am I becoming egocentric? I have the feeling that I’m the center of ‘The Universe’. It sounds fun though. Time to take leave for now.

(Note: I promised a new image for this post, but my WordPress app is on hibernation. I have mailed the staff for the alarm. Let’s see when things work again. I can’t promise anything anymore.)

Thank you.

This post is now well above 1000 words. I made it. Yay! See you next time.

“WELCOME To My BLOG!”

This is neither my first post, nor I’m actually welcoming you to this space. If you know me from your social media circles (which has a fair chance, nobody else appears here), you might think that I’m trying to be funny. Honestly, I’m not.

Why would I want you guys to read this? It’s a free blog on WordPress. A platform which does an awesome job of making blogging easier than buying a good pair of shoes. Although, like any other business – the primary objective is to earn money. (I know they will say differently – and most probably “consumer satisfaction” is the anonymous reply as far as businesses are concerned).

Lets not deviate from the topic too much – I was stating that wordpress.com makes blogging easy, but it limits its usage too. There is a restriction on space, earning and everything. This free version of WordPress has just been made to let people express, and nothing more. Then, there’s the wordpress.org is the best blogging platform which allows blogging with utmost professionalism, but then it needs more time and effort than any other blogging platform. Although, the platform is a heaven for those who choose to be “serious” bloggers.

Which brings me to Blogger – what more can anyone say? The once “next big thing” hasn’t evolved like it was expected too. And, it’s more like “some of this – some of that” phenomenon now. Although, it’s still popular as it still integrates well with Google, and is easier managed than a wordpress.org blog, allowing less (much less) limitations than a wordpress.org blog. It will continue to be used, until Google thinks it’s time. You never know with Google. Remember Google reader, and all the mess happening (or not happening) with Google+. We will and should continue with #FixThePlus but it’s not profitable for ’em. So, we will have to accept, whatever is served to us.

Tumblr, SquareSpace, Medium and more than 24 blogging platforms exist as well. Then vlogging is another option too. All having its limitations, all its uncertainties. Now, if you are a blogger reading this. Guys – EVOLVE is the word for you. The internet boom came, it shook the world, but it’s after a decade and a half – matters are really about to shake wild.

If you’re looking to earn from blogging. Keep an eye on ad-blockers, it’s a game changer, but then we all know how difficult earning from AdSense is. The next thing is affiliate marketing, and if you aren’t into its details, you should be.

If you’re a writer, you shouldn’t be worrying about all this, but I hate how much ignorant writers are about the alternative mediums about promoting their books. Create PPT presentation peeps, share to SlideShare, create quizzes for GoToQuiz, and really think out of the box. As good as G+, Twitter and Facebook are, they’re not the only thing you should be checking out in the mornings.

Now, if you are just another cool peep as me – #Chillax. Have fun looking at all of our fellow humans struggle their ways to make their dream space on the Web. But, we also have our problems, don’t we? Anyways, I will have fun looking at the stats for this post, and really people hitting my site does make me HAPPY. I know I said otherwise at the start, I even used “honestly” but you should always believe the “latest” word, shouldn’t you? That’s what all of us do with politicians.

If I being a novice myself have to give an advice on Social Media – It will be that don’t get STUCK to one platform. Explore your opportunities, and I’m pretty confident with what I’m saying.

Side notes: I’m 3% fluent in French now. I love WordPress even more. If you didn’t read up until here, you s*ck. But, then you did, right?

Side notes (2): I call myself a blogger, and a writer too. I hope no one has an objection. I’m in the middle of writing a book (not exactly middle, but still #AmWriting), and I still post on this blog, at least once a month. So you see, just wish me luck. See you in the next post. If you haven’t had enough already.

Bonjour! (Good day in French)😎

[Now those who know that I have used this image before, or wondering if the picture goes well with the theme of the post. Well, please don’t think too much. I was finding a tough time uploading an image to my WordPress app. So, i took a shortcut, and used an earlier one. I’m too smart. Okay. A fresh image next time is guaranteed. Thanks for your time. It’s really appreciated, and you don’t know the happiness you provide me by reading this :’). Bye.]
