Being a human, I am also selfish.
Let me elaborate. There are quite some “hot” topics that one can blog about these days. Specially if you live in Islamabad, then the highly dramatic hungama that is currently being “performed” on Shahrah-e-Dastoor, is totally irresistible. On the other hand, if you are a cricket fan, then the opening match of the 2007 world cup between Pakistan and West Indies is a great thing to write about (and consequently, to rant about how the men in green uniforms lost). I, however, have never understood the delicacies of neither politics nor cricket. And, as I just claimed, I am also selfish. So, standing true to my claim, I am not going to talk about anything except my blog, and it’s 4th birthday.
Some two weeks ago, a friend of mine very nonchalantly told me a very interesting thing. He was just stating that man, being the strange species that he is, longs deeply for something, but after that something is finally under his possession, he loses all his interest in it. As an example, he said to me that after I had gotten my own domain and hosting space for my blog, I had been less frequent in updating it, while before that when my blog had been hosted on Diary-X, my updates (albeit less frequent then too) were pretty regular. (I know, some would disagree with that too.) Silently, I agreed with him. Not really agreed with him on his theory (as there can be exceptions), but I had to agree with him on the example he presented. That is certainly not to say that I have lost interest in blogging. I mean, come on — I updated to the latest version of WordPress just yesterday.
So, here we are. At the 4th blogiversary of Ulta Seedha. And yes, I know, this has been the most slow blogging year of them all. But anyway, as before, here are some ultay seedhay stats for this blog’s 4th year:
And now that I no longer suffer from Enetation, I think I can also include stats about comments:
Okay, let me say it again, the 4th year for this blog has been the slowest of them all. And the worst part is, I don’t know if the 5th one will be similar. I mean, I have certainly matured a great deal as a procrastinator, and the WordPress upgrade that I talked about in the beginning, should really have occurred a long time ago. (But then again, I avoided the hassle of upgrading again and again, huh?) Some of the hacks done by me are not working after the upgrade, but overall, it’s not a big deal, and can be fixed within an hour or two. That is to say, if I sit down and actually work on it. The design of this blog also needs a change. Maybe in the next six months, it might come along.
And in the end, as always, a super duper Thank You to all those who have been coming here and reading all the nonsense that I have been writing, despite the frustratingly slow updates. You all rock, you all roll, and you all rule!
I, on the other hand, sleep.
