Preface to this blog
This blog, a small contribution to the blogging world, which has helped me reach out to the world, helped me put up my thoughts freely at my own will, the way I want, without anyone interfering with the way I want to express my thoughts.
Before I move forward, please allow me introduce myself, to you, to help me better connect to you, and express myself better, and make this blog, a bit helpful to you. Blogging has been one of the favourite past times for me, for just around now, as of writing this. You can also consider this as an opportunity for a predominantly shy guy, one who is more than a reserved one in almost every walk of life, from expressing his thoughts, to talking in a group of unknown people, and more reserved in having friends. Being said that, let me give you an indepth view of myself. I am Ajeet Sharma, and I’ve been a very small part in the blogosphere, for some time now. I write under the pseudonym (pen name) “CyberKID“. The reason I chose the name, was that, I was quite influenced by the technology around me, and more than that, I was much more fascinated by the IT revolution, which first came into appearance to me when I was in class V. Since then I’ve grown to know that being a very small part, in the world of technology. My fascination, willingness and curiosity to know about things has forever been a part of my nature. Be it technology in the field of Computers, Electronics, Warfare, Space, Robotics, Engineering, and all kinds of tech stuff; the “KID” part signifies a part of it, considering that a small kid is always very curious to know stuff, than a grown up person, and I want to always remain a kid, inquisitive and curious, The “Cyber” just tells you that I’m all about technology, – The IT revolution. A large part of my time goes on the computer – my laptop, and the internet, so, it has now become an integral part of my daily life, so, it is “Cyber“. I believe that what I know in this information intensive world is just a very small part, so, my efforts are focussed towards knowing more, and enhancing my knowledge over time.
Being a part of the blogging world for around 2 years now, starting with a blog to share my hobby, of gardening with like minded people, I’ve experienced that there is more than what meets the eye, to start, write and maintain a blog; and even more, keeping it alive through the ups and downs of it. Believe me, a lot of effort goes in, especially when one is genuinely into it. We bloggers, who come from all the walks of life, are really a diverse lot. Some of us are good at writing, some are good at painting or drawing, and some are good at something else. What makes us alike is the passion we have in ourselves that makes us to blog, and show the world, what we are capable of.
Coming from varied backgrounds of life, our social, economic and educational traits too differ a lot. While some bloggers belong to a particular social or economic background for which, a particular niche they are working in, suits better, others are educated in a different niche, which they use to the best of their abilities to write wonderful and not-so-wonderful articles on their blogs, which many a times comes in handy for the readers. Here, the one common thing among all bloggers from different backgrounds is the technology we all use. The Web (the Internet) has enabled us to express our voices, the way we want, and express it without anyone’s interference and this is one of the biggest distinctions between social media (including sites like facebook, twitter, pinterest and personal blogs) and traditional media. Though, a blogger is bound by the moral responsibility to not post anything that is objectionable to anyone.
Now, I think I should concentrate on the reason for starting this blog. Having started blogging, I wanted to interact with some other like minded people, so as to know more about how to continue with my blog, and also, to pursue blogging as more than a hobby, and making it to be a professional blogger. In my journey, from being a rookie, to a somewhat learnt one, I have been into highs and lows, fiddling with hundreds of pages as a result of Google search, to searching through thousands of lines of HTML codes of the blogger template and trying numerous codes to get even the smallest thing done properly. The fact that I saw blogger.com as an easy to use platform to host my blog, though not entirely aware of the differences, and also of the fact that WordPress allows much more flexibility and ease in customization as the user wants, given the large support community and the numerous plugins available for easy customizations.
