Should i quit blogging?


Though i have been blogging since the last 4 years or so not even once have i felt bored with it or thought of quitting it.But now i have seriously started thinking of abandoning my blog.No,i haven't lost my interest in blogging yet but something terrible has happened.Yesterday i got a very 'harsh' mail from somebody who happened to be my batchmate in college.The mail accused me of ruining his/her career by publishing 'false stories' about him/her in my blog.Though initially i didnt get what the mail was referring to, soon i realised it was this blog post of mine(Love,Sex Etc) that had forced him/her to write that mail to me.At this juncture i would like to clarify the following things
  • To malign somebody through this blog was never my intention.
  • Honestly i don't have any problems with anybody (dead or alive)in this world and even if i have, i will not even think of doing as silly as(writing a long story about him/her and waste my precious time in that futile attempt) this to seek my revenge.
  • This post is a work of fiction .Characters named J,K,N never existed.
  • Though nikhimenon(Nikhilesh) had fallen in love,the girl was neither a Christian nor a Muslim.She was also not from his College and is very much with him now.
  • nikhimenon has nothing to do with DPS or the 'mms scandal'.
  • Labour Rooms do exist in Medical Colleges but it's not a place meant for chatter and loose talk.
  • If i have inadvertently caused any mental/physical/psychological trauma to anyone by writing this blog post,i seriously apologise.
I never expected something as terrible as this.Should i quit blogging?Readers,please help me.....

Quit blogging?! What a blunder! A blogger must face all kind of hurdles in his way. These letters are common and you clarified your intention was innocent. As long as your works remain fictional, coincidences never push you into agony.
Keep writing, We expect more.

This isnt facebook or twitter that you quit because someone accused you for something you havent done. This is your blog and you vent out whtever your heart and mind feels. You had no intention to slander anyone and it is their fault that they took it that way.

Sh@s said...

You shouldn't. Try to sort it out with the person over the phone or mail. Such comments shouldn't deter you. Continue writing.TC

People talk. Athu atreyullu. Take it with a pinch of salt.

The thing is, they must have recognised the story as being 'inspired from real life' and hence the problems. Clarify and let it go, they don't need any more attention.

On the other hand, if you don't feel like blogging because the mail has put you off, take a break, and then come back with double the vigor.

I do not understand why you should quit on the basis of an e mail you get. When you love blogging , go ahead and enjoy. These kind of things may happen and you have clarified everything.

Thaking you all once again,

lol... take it easy dude.. just because some jerk sent you a mail, it doesn't mean your are gonna quit blogging...
keep writing... i hope to see more of you in my dashboard :)

Viya ;) said...

No way!... Its not like you put up pictures and real names of those people and you pretty clearly mentioned its a semi- fiction work!
:)
and i second PV! :D
This is your space! :) write away...! :D ;)

The Updater said...

Hey! New to your space :) But I like your writing.
Writing for yourself is kinda different from writing for an audience, I'm sure you know that :)
Nevertheless, the post clearly says, its a work of fiction :) And you know what you are doing. Plus your writing is awesome and lovable :)
DONT QUIT :)
Keep up the great work :)

This is your own blog!

Same thing can be good and bad to different people. The posts are just to be shared & enjoyed.
If people are taking it in negative way then you can't help it, yea you can explain them. Why to quit blogging?? You can't end this blog that you maintained from last 4 years. Think!!

Maya said...

thats why i post anonymously,
anyway coming to your problem, there will always be people who make useless noise.. keep blogging and keep annoying people

Vijay Menon said...

of course not! Just because they didn't get what you meant doesn't mean you have to quit, it's for them to understand. This is your space and you write what you feel.
These things happen, i had faced a similar situation almost a month back for writing a post on the Anna movement.So keep writing!

Cheers!

well, since u didnt write anything tht pointed to this particular person n yet he/she wrote tht letter to u, my suggestion is focus on blogging big time, become a great blogger n then intentionally write nonsense about him/her intentionally n screw his/her happiness.... what's he/she gonna do then? Send u the same letter twice? !

Dude, keep bloggin man!!! For everythin else, beer hai na bhai...:)

We are in the midst of scrutinising blogs for inclusion in the Directory of Best Indian Blogs, so came to this place too.
You should [must] quit blogging. After ten years from now. By then, there will be a new name for blogging. Till then, do continue blogging.

Did you really think everyone would reply "yes, do quit. I hate your blog." and to that would you have gone "thank you for telling me wat to do.. I shall quit rite away"
:-/
Its your blog... its a good read.. if u choose to quit, its more your loss that ours(the readers) cos we shall move on and find a new blog to follow.. but u probably won't get 17 comments on a random day telling you how awesome your writing is. :) think bout it :)
