How Blogging is like sex?

Beware: PG13.

Blogging can be directly compared to only one aspect of real life - Sex after marriage. I‘m 98.9986978% sure.

When one starts to blog, the inexplicable happiness of expressing and sharing would make one want to write more. Writing good blogposts would make one a delightful person, because of the ‘happiness partaking’ that happens. Like the sex after marriage.

In the early days of blogging, one would want to write a minimum of one blogpost a day or at times even multiple posts a day. Most times, all one would think of is to do nothing but write a blogpost. Like the sex after marriage.

But things don’t seem to remain the same. The priorities change, interests shift and thoughts drift. The frequency of blogpost falls with time. The number reduces from one post a day to one post a week, then to once a month and eventually to 'maybe I should visit my blog and see how it looks'. Like the sex after marriage.

The author is not smart enough to experience the above phenomena yet. But he is smart enough to think!

Update: After the last post, I got a new camera and did a super cool trip this weekend. I'm feeling happy!

cant believe that I'm agreeing with you...


true true true....

ps: you should have asked the guys at AMC to gift you a cam, you have been single handedly responsible to keep them afloat in times of recession!

LOL. Reminds me of this real life incident.

A bunch of us were visiting a friend and crashing at his place, and one of my friends and his wife were gonna crash in the guest room, while the rest of us were going to crash in the living room. My friend's wife said that the guestroom was big enough to house a couple of more people and invited others, to which a friend replied, "Sorry, we don't wanna be kabab-mein-haddi."

My friend's wife immediately shot back, "married log roz kabab nahein bante." :D

IITG,

Ela,
Enna is it is it? Blogging is like Sex only. I thought I offered explanation.

Nandini,
Unmaya sonnaa pidikkaadhey?!

Kavitha,
I have always been one.

Manasi,
so you believe the metaphor?

Truth and Lies,
I can explain, but I dont want to make the comments section rated 'R'. And about the Indiblogger, there was a 'get a badge' icon or something like that back then. I forgot.

Dot,
Thanks. but A60 M30?

Dot said...

I'm not fluent in Tamil. It's basically a Tamil saying which goes something like this "Liking 60 days Lust 30 days"

Saran said...

Lovely comparison arun!!!

I think that its not so much about priorities changing, intrest shifting and thoughts drifting. It is possibly because you know that your blog will always be there for you to revisit very much like the fact that sex can always be had when you want it ;)
