— Ace Just one less body I have to clamber over in my well-nigh inevitable rise to fame and fortune beyond belief:
I've told myself when I began to blog that I will carry on as long as I enjoy myself. This blog has been more for myself than for others. When it came to a point where I began to write for others, I knew something was wrong.
I didn't start this to make money. But now, I'm too preoccupied with Google Adwords and how to make more money.
I didn't start this to build big traffic. But now, I'm too preoccupied analyzing traffic patterns and how to build them further.
I don't understand what you're driving at.
I didn't start this to become India's top blogger or to be the most influential one. But now that I have, I'm too preoccupied retaining that position.
India has bloggers? Shit, how many? Seems like a smaller market; maybe I should try my luck over there.
What is the deal with nan? Is it a bread, is it a pita-- what is it?
See, nothin' to it, really.
Obviously, somewhere I lost focus. And I quite don't like that.
Hmmm... this is startin' to sound like whiny pussy-shit to me.
There are other exciting things I'm very passionate about. And I would like to focus my time and energy on them.
I've got other things I'm passionate about, too. Like selling cool-ass t-shirts, and whining for donations.
And porn, of course. But what are you going to do with the other ten hours of the day?
Just kidding, really. This does get to be a grind, like anything else. But, as Ensign Mayo said, "I've got nowhere else to go... I've got nowhere else to go...! Oh boo hoo, boo hoo fuckin' hoo..."
I mean, I'm pretty sure Bollywood has their own version of Blossom. Right?

you really should consider BollyBlog - "bolly" stars are worshipped, absolutely worshipped, here in Singapore and the region but especially in India. They don't seem to make the same kind of money that the "holly" ones do, but they do alright and there's nothing that can compensate for worship I guess. And seems to me you never here them whining about their privacy - being god-like automatically cancels out privacy I guess.
based on the number of Indian taxi drivers in NYC I think you could already qualify as an Indian blog!

Ohhh, I don't know... I've managed well enough so far.
(Okay... that post was written after a hastily-slammed beer.)

Be the best you can be and don't worry about the outcome.
If the public likes your best, you will be successful. If the public hates your best, than you will fail. If they hate your best than it is time to move on to something else to make your fortune.

When the t-shirts arrive smelling of saag paneer we'll know the truth.
