Why I like to blog

August 25, 2005

The blogging community is expanding rapidly. More and more people are expressing their feelings, views and creativity -- online.

A few weeks ago, we invited all you bloggers out there to write in and tell us about your blogs.

We feature six blogs by Get Ahead readers, some even with themes -- like art, photography and love.

An ad man's message

'Adlova' (the name of my blog) is advertising seen from the point of an ad lover. If you wanna see the ad world from a creative guy's point of view, adlova is the place to be. It is the most popular advertising blog in India. It gets almost 100 visitors from across the world everyday, and it's run by an adlova: me.

-- Anantha: copywriter and scriptwriter

An artist's pallete

My art blog 'An Amateur's Palette', is dedicated to artistic expression. It is exclusively for art related stuff, as the name suggests. I post my completed paintings and works in progress, open to criticism from fellow art lovers.

-- Nithya, 25, is a software engineer and an amateur artist

My photo blog

I started blogging more than three years ago. I bought a digital SLR camera in March 2005 and started learning about digital photography. After seeing the enormity of learning involved, I decided to document my learning and findings in the field. Hence this blog on digital photography.

-- Arun, 28, works for a software firm in Bangalore.

Got a date?

I first started blogging when I saw the blogs section on Then I started writing, which I never did before. And thanks to Rediff, I became a writer. Today, people love my work and they expect me to bring out more, which makes me work harder. I write often on love.

-- Sahil Banga, 24, is a copywriter.

Fuelling my creative juices

I have been blogging for a year now and am thoroughly enjoying it.  My job doesn't provide a channel for my writing skills, apart from writing serious technical mails to clients. So, blogging has been a welcome activity to liven up my day and give vent to my creative juices. I never thought others would take interest in reading my posts, but am pretty surprised at the regular visitors -- and that ocassional fan mail too. 

-- Susheel works for an export house in Chennai.                                   

I like writing about life
My blog is about the simplicity and complexity of life.
-- Sayesha is 25 years old.  
B-school meanderings
I started my blog along with a lot of other friends, mostly B-school aspirants, about 15 months ago. I write about my experiences in B-school plus my viewpoints about social issues.
-- Govar, 24, studies in IIM-Indore.
