I've been tagged by Suemamma
Here are my answers to the questions:

1.Are you happy/satisfied with your blog with it's content and look?Does your family know about your blog?

Yes I am quite happy with my the content of my blog.I leave it to you to judge its looks. My daughter was the one to introduce me to the blog world and my family knows about it.

2.Do you feel embarrassed to let your friends know about your blog or you just consider it as a private thing?

I have no embarassment about anyone reading my blog. My close friends already know of most things that I write.

3.Did blogs cause positive changes in your thoughts?

I got to know a lot by reading the opinion of my blog readers thro’ their comments. I really enjoy them and feel good. Positive changes automatically follow.

4.Do you only open the blogs of those who comment on your blog or you love to go and discover more by yourself?

I read the blogs of those who comment. The visitor directs me to other good blog posts.Right now I am busy.Once I return to India in October I’ll try and discover more blogs on my own.

5.What does visitors counter mean to you? Do you care about putting it in your blog?

Oh yes. I have a site meter and I do look it up.It gives me an idea of the many people who visit my site.

6.Did you try to imagine your fellow bloggers and give them real pictures?

I have a mental picture of my fellow bloggers based on the stuff they write. It is more to do with their mind than looks.

7.Admit. Do you think there is a real benefit for blogging?

I find blogging very beneficial. It allows you to be yourself..

8.Do you think that bloggers society is isolated from real world or interacts with events?

The bloggers society is an interaction of like minded people. Experiences are exchanged and opinions generated. One learns a lot in the process.

9.Does criticism annoy you or do you feel it's a normal thing?

Healthy criticism is okay. I don’t think I’d worry too much about malicious criticism.That is also part of life.

10.Do you fear some political blogs and avoid them?

Politics does not interest me very much. I may not deliberately avoid them.But I wouldn’t be too interested in going through them. Nor would I want to comment.

11.Did you get shocked by the arrest of some bloggers?

I did not know about such arrests and would like to know the reasons. I would like to take it as a warning.

12.Did you think about what will happen to your blog after you die?

Death is a certainity. In fact it is the only thing that is common to all people.I don’t think I’d worry too much about it. I would rather enjoy what life has to offer.

13.What do you like to hear? What's the song you might like to put a link to in your blog?

There was a song
Courage brother,Do not stumble
Though thy path be dark as night,
Turn from man and look above thee,

Trust in God and do the right.'


I’d like to put a link to the song in my blog.It would really lift my spirits up!

About more people to tag, I don't know.
I'll tag Passerby55 and Usha I guess if they are willing.

usha:your was the first blog I visited and saw so much of myself in you.Now I see that how right I was.

passerby55:I knew I was transparent but I didn't know that I was this bad! Just joking.Suemamma and hillg'mom are the same I guess.this is the name she assumes in her family blog.hillg'mom correct me if I am wrong.

keshi:may be if someone wanted to say things that they may not normally say or those that they may not want to be connected to them,they may prefer to keep it private.It depends on the kind of family they belong to.

The Visitor said...

G'ma - Feminism, is something which seems quite complex. I've been reading some material on it - you'd have seen the links on my blog. Molly has given quite elaborate answers. While I agree to a large part of what is considered as feminism, there are some parts to which I am not in agreement. Is this because of a cultural bias, that I have, and should I reid myself of this bias? or should feminism itself be interpreted keeping in mind the cultural context? Can you give your opinion on this vis-a-vis the description of feminism given by Molly?
PS: I am taking too much liberty with you asking you to do this - so do it only if you find it interesting and you have the time.

Kalpana said...

A cool tag...

Hip Grandma said...

the visitor:i've just glanced through Molly's responses on feminism.Will post something after going thro' it in more detail.Feminism is a complex issue and no view can address all aspects.But will give it a try.

kalpana:thanx.
