So who/what inspired you to take up blogging?

It could be a person or an event that could have caused you to plunge into this addiction.. For me it was the Fake IPL Player..The guy was amazing and gave blogging in India a totally new perspective.

Mm...Restless had a huge topic on this one a while back, Chirainda (by the way, a very interesting albeit hard to spell name - what does it mean?) and I'll sum up here what I wrote there: 

1) A book inspired me to start blogging. It was a book so good I had to share it with someone. :) Check out my first post sometime if you want to see it.  

2) I blog because, well, I see people's reviews exhaustively before buying a book and I would like to provide such a resource for another person. :) Also for the feeling of having someone read a book coz you recommended it.

Chirainda is a typical U.P. word which means a very witty skeptical person ;)

Tigana is the next book that Im buying. Period.

I was talking to my friend about my passion for fitness and how i wanted to make people aware of fitness, health and lifestyle. That very same moment he told me...... "start Blogging".

When I was introduced to this thing called Blogging by a friend 4 years ago, I just wanted to make my mark on the WWW by blogging. Gradually, the urge to share my thoughts, opinions and, experiences with fellow people made me blog.

I was initially mad about having a website. I was in constant discussion about the same with a very close friend of mine. I started using random free hosted websites and he ended up starting a blog. Later he was really happy using the blog. Then I came to know that what I required was a blog.

Boring story :P

It was my gateway to freedom that I got through writing. I started it because I wanted to pen down my feelings after downright emo/depressing days. Well, it's strange as I was just 15 when I started blogging. :P

My hobby was "Gyan Batna". But this gyan of mine was scattered. I started my blog MONEY MATTERS 2 months back so that i can help people with their finances.

My inspiration has been a bit different. I've already spoken about this on my blog, but i'll tell again.

One of my friends used to be in blogging and website building thing. And, he used to own a really mast domain - fattebaz.com. Since I heard this name, I always wanted to buy a equally attractive name for myself.

Then after 7-8 months, I thought found a name - Dhakkanz!! Since then I am into blogging.

I could say all that I wanted without killing the uninterested (and the motherhood-uninitiated) with boredom. I didn't need already harassed friends or the indifferent hubby as audience :-)

Whenever I used to travel, I used to search the net for places to visit, eat, stay...

Never found a good enough site with all the necessary information...

So one fine day, I decided to start a blog and include my travel tales with all the general information for an average traveller!!

So my blog http://myyatradiary.blogspot.com/ was formed, inspired by my difficulties!!
