Tell us your blogging story, like I have mentioned before if I got a dollar for every time this question is asked I would be a millionaire by now. I am seriously considering adding a new category to my book blog and my blog on answering prompts, that is “My favourite author” and ‘Why do I blog”.
Indispire asked the very question on april 18th 2014!! May be this is a take stock, refocus and get your writing goal right point. . So before I answer, the question I wonder what inspired the question.
Albert Camus wrote that the only serious question is whether to kill yourself or not. Tom Robbins wrote that the only serious question is whether time has a beginning and an end, what comes across to me with this, is that Albert Camus got out on the wrong side of the bed, and Tom Robbins’s alarm didn’t go off. The only serious question that elicits an answer is what shall I cook for lunch, answer me that and I shall tell you why I blog, whether to kill yourself or kill someone else.
Question themselves could arise from various source, randomly inspired by Sri Sri Ravishankar I could say they could be inspired by
- Misery the why me kinds, the only way to answer this is just hear them out, These are usually people who love playing victims.
- Anger its not fair, and person is being quite judgemental, in these cases sometimes answers can bring about resolution. But in most cases it gives rise to more questions.
- Attention seeking. People of this category ask question just to show people that they are there and the fact that they are noticed gives them satisfaction.
- To gauge or test the other person’s knowledge or dept. they already have an answer they want compliance.
- The sincere seeker is the fifth type who really wants to know something and have the faith that the person they are asking knows and will tell them. this is the only question that merits an answer.
So Jay Neog where does your question come from?
Interestingly, when some says questioning it takes a total different intonation from asking questions. Maybe we could get more clarity if I took the time to ask “what does this question actually mean, what does Jay want to achieve with question.”
Jay, do you know what happens to lads to who ask too many questions?
Take a deep breath and be prepared, they get ANSWERS, and serve you right.
Now why do I blog and what is my blogging story that was your question right…well …Here’s why https://plinkyprompt.wordpress.com/2014/04/18/the-writers-way/ and …Here’s why https://plinkyprompt.wordpress.com/2013/02/08/voice-ay-th-silent/
The Buddhist Philosopher Nagarjuna says that each time we read the book, the anubhava or the experience is different. for between the questions there would other anubhava’s and Jnana that is experience and knowledge that would influence the reading. I guess the same goes for questions too. The answers vary each time because the insight varies.
