A Field Day for Commenting

Activity of Daily Task from Blogging 101

Internet comment section – A place to voice an opinion nobody really cares for, to argue with people you don’t really know, about topics that you don’t fully understand.

It has even managed to make the smelly, old monster living under the bridge in the old fairy tales seem like a very likable person.

Trolling Before it was Cool

Thankfully, most problems related to comment section have been taken care of by WordPress by giving the bloggers to moderate their comment section.

This brings us to daily task of Blogging 101. If you are following this blog regularly (Pfft – high chance of that happening) and were wondering why I am not posting about daily task every day, it’s not because I am skipping them (stop being judgmental – I already have my dad doing that for me). There are a few tasks which have to be done in the background and I chose to not write about them.

Anyway, so the daily task is asking us to comment on a few blogs which we have not visited before – 4 blogs to be precise – and then write a post about those topics/pages/blogs.

Here are my pick for the Top 4 in no special order

Number 4: Sincerely, Hil

This is a post about why she chooses to print out her photos in the age of digital photography. It helped me get inspired for a short story. So this is specially great.

Number 3: Anand’s Caricatures and Parodies

In this post Anand describes how cumbersome this whole ordeal of opening our laptops/PC and moving around a few fingers—which hardly burn a calorie—to get our work done can be. It sounds easy but trust me, it’s not. Plus, he is hilarious. There is so much to learn from him.

Number 2: In Noir Velvet

It would have been a sin to not include this. If you ever thought you need lots of words to convey something, you should really take a look at this blog. I am absolutely astounded by how much can be said in 6 words. Although, I like most of the posts in the blog – I chose to comment on the most recent one. Check it out.

Number 1: A Narcissist Writes Letters, to Himself

This blog is my personal favorite and also the first blog which compelled me to click the follow button. I am a miser in that aspect. Poetry with humor at its finest. Plus, he picks topics which one might think to be a taboo and yet present it in a humorous fashion (dark humor it’s called, I think), plus points for that.

There are a variety of different blogs out there and I hope to learn something from all of them. Anything which can give me a new outlook for any writing style – serious, dark, humorous. I am planning to gain a lot of knowledge through blogging.

New Things Every Day
New Things Every Day

Lets see how much of that can actually happen.

Till then, from one writer to another, WRITE ON!

  1. Haha..nice touch with the pictures. Somedays I feel blogging is a great platform for creative people but somedays I feel people write just to be heard. I like the humour in your words, but at the same time going through the 4 blogs posts that you have mentioned, one gets to see the different side of you as well :). I was expecting recommendations of blog posts full of pun. Anyways, Nice work fellow blogger, see you around.

  2. Dear Mask 🙂

    I loved reading this post. It’s witty, humorous and does the task perfectly. I am learning a lot from you day by day and closely trying to follow your craft. I would love to read more articles from you.

    The recommendations in this blog are gems and I have been to three of these–I would visit the narcissist too and follow him 🙂

    Thanks for sharing this wonderful article. I am resharing this on many platforms.

    • It’s nice to hear that you want to learn from my writing when all I am doing here is experimenting with various styles. (Although, what I can possibly offer to you I don’t know – you already write quite well)

      Thank you for sharing this.


      • Even when you are experimenting you are doing it with panache. I really have to learn a lot from you and from many other fellow bloggers who write very well. Some of us are gifted with sense of humor and wit–like you and Anand; more than most I have come across so far. That’s a great gift–but someone trying to learn might keep observing you people and acquire a notch better writing 🙂 🙂

  3. Hey..
    I hope the identity in anonymity is revealed or reveals via your blogs 🙂

    Great post!

    looking forward to read more!



      • No issues.. 🙂
        I’ll still be here when if happens.. Or if it happens. And even if it doesn’t , is also fine 🙂 don’t feel compelled.. Your wish of course 🙂


  4. First, copious thanks for mentioning my blog…but I must defend my honor. I am not sure if I’m actually as lazy as you think I am…my finger might be lazy, my broom may have run away – but I am hardworking to a fault. I work through the day – write code, fix bugs, write more code, draw despite my wrist threatening me with carpal tunnel syndrome, and in midst of all this, I want to blog, visit your blog and leave comments. Tell me, if after all this my mind begins churning out quirky, snarky, malarkey – who can blame it?

    • It’s perfect to be spewing out such posts in such a situation.
      You did miss a semicolon somewhere in the middle.

      Actually, you just missed a coma (not that it matters), but I know a semicolon is more likely to make a code writer skip a beat.


    • Haha. I am glad you like my writing.
      The name arose from when I first started people watching for my stories and the fact that I was hell bent on becoming like Holmes (hasn’t happened yet, if you are wondering)
      Please don’t steal it, it is my only identity here. Plus, I think the Blues Gal is already a good name.

      That being said, sharing anything about my continent or country would beat the purpose of the blog. (I can email it to you, if you are extremely interested :P)

      Also, I really like your site. As an avid reader and writer – it is a gem.
