Why I Named it ? .....

A lot of people have been asking this question to me.. and I feel obliged to answer, atleast for the fact that they have found the time to read my blog, and the effort they have taken to actually ponder over the question...

Why is your blog after your name ? Why not something different ? Are you trying to show off ? or are you an egoist who is trying to make a name for himself ? Was it that you were pretty bored with other names, or was it that you were lazy, and thought your name would look cool.. In times such as these, where people, use totally whacky and interesting blog names, both as fun, as well as to attract folks to their blog, நீ மட்டும் என் டா இந்த மாதிரி மொக்கதனமா title வெச்சுருக்கே ???

டுபுக்கு .. HawkEyeView .. JustAMotherOfTwo, Blogeswari, RogueGene, _____musings, _____writes ... etc etc... இப்டி எல்லாரும், அவங்களோட personal identities எ reveal பண்ணாம எழுதும் போது .. உனக்கு மட்டும் என்ன பந்தா வேண்டிகேடக்குநு நீங்க கேக்கறது..என் காதுல விழுது...

மக்களே ..!!!
இந்த blog a நான் ஆரம்பிக்கும்போது ... நான் தாங்க இதுல முன்னோடி ... I mean ... நான் தான் 'One of the First' ... so அப்போ கொஞ்சம் கொழந்த தனமா பெற வெச்சுட்டேன் ...

The truth is gentlemen, (and ladies), எனக்கு அப்போ விவரம் பத்தல .. (இப்போவும் ஒன்னும் அதிகம் இல்லன்னு நீங்க சொல்றது.. என் காதுல விழுது... ). I did what I had to do. I contemplated a lot of names, and finally I chose this one. I have no regrets. (though sometimes I do think, that, இந்த மாதிரி பெயர் வெச்சுட்டு... நம்மலே இப்டி அசிங்க பட்டுகுரோமானு ... பருவாஇல்லே .. :P)

O.K .. Let's be honest... Yes, I thought it would be cool to have one's name as a blog name. I never thought, that my blog would see so many 'light of day's. I was naive. (O.K.. I agree...That's an understatement.) But I was also a pioneer. When most of my classmates were into looking at porn sites and checking mails, I did do something useful. Three years ago, when I sent mails to whole mailing lists, for reading my blog, I was parodied. Laughed at. Made fun of.

Today, when the very same people, say that they are following my blog regularly and that they are eagerly anticipating the next post. Its kind of fulfilling.. (Not like எப்டி இருந்த நான்... இப்டி ஆயிட்டேன்... !!!!)

ஆனா looking back, I still feel, that this was the best thing that I did. இனிக்கு என்னோட ப்ளாக் தான் என்னோட Identity மாதிரி ஆயிடிச்சு ... though it is not what I want, but it still gives me an adrenaline rush, when I see that counter running towards 25000 hits..!!!

இத விட ஒரு மனுஷனுக்கு என்ன வேணும் ?

நாலு பேரு நல்லா சிறிச்சா.. ஏதுவுமே தப்பில்லை... எதுவுமே தப்பில்லை ...

P.S :- The bottom line is that I am actually enjoying all the attention that I am getting.. :) :P

  1. What's wrong in naming one's blog in his/her name? What's wrong if you enable people to "google" & know about ur online presence?

    Even the blogs u hv mentioned will have an "About me" section & "View my profile" section.

    After reading ur post, I searched the web on "naming your blog" and found this one...Jst chk out..
