Why I Blog at Chowrangi!

When people visit a blog, they want something that is interesting, something different. If it doesn’t appeal to the reader right away, he/she might not visit the blog again. This is why it is wise to write on different subjects, and my favorites include lifestyle, blogging and the occult category.

I personally blog at Chowrangi because of the beautiful layout, the freedom to write on anything I want and the vast number of categories. I didn’t start a personal blog for the simple reason that there are millions out there, lying in some corner eating dust. Multi-authored blogs generate a lot of traffic, so it is wise to blog at one, if you want people to read what you write.

Another reason why I blog at Chowrangi is because of its ability to generate content that appeals to everyone, regardless of race, religion, culture, interests, background etc. Other blogs just talk about politics. I don’t think an Arab or a Westerner would want to visit a blog to find out what Musharraf, Manmohan Singh or Zardari do everyday. Even an Indian or a Pakistani wouldn’t, as there is more than enough information in newspapers and on the internet.

One person who has really impressed me is Fahd Mirza. A human blogging machine. If it wasn’t for him, I would not have taken blogging as seriously as I do. Someone who I learnt perseverance from.

Although blogging has always been about males in the past, it is good to see a rise in the number of female bloggers. My favorites include Ambreen, Momina and Hina Safdar. It is good to see them doing an excellent job, creating interest among readers and making a difference.

Blogging is not a passion. When you’re on Chowrangi, it becomes an addiction.

  1. Yusha: I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: you do write good English (much better than most Indians and Pakistanis), but when you write on black magic you come across as someone who’s never been to school.

  2. To All: I’ll second everything all of you have said, and add that I get an enormous amount of enjoyment here, possibly because we are so far distant geographically and culturally. Learning something about your world from your own viewpoints is priceless, and it’s a joy to get to know you all–who you are, what you think and feel, and realize that once the veneers of our differences are peeled away, our souls inside are kindred. I don’t think you can get that kind of connection anywhere else.

  3. @Hina: There are many impressive things about you, but the thing that impresses me the most is the fact that you are very hard working. In only a few months you have submitted a lot of quality posts. I can only wish I was as hard working as you. 🙂

  4. Chowrangi has its own style and charm. It has something for every one. Some of the blogs out there do have interesting content but I must say they exaggerate a lot and quite abusive sometimes. I love to blog at Chowrangi and it’s truly an honor to be a part of The Best Multi Authored Blog and its right that,

    It’s been an (UNEXPECTED) honor for a few month old blogger like me to have acknowledgment from your side 🙂

  5. Lol…a catchy tagline at the end 🙂

    I agree with Hamid. Your way of writing is quite perky, which catches and holds interest.

    Am honoured. Jazakallho Khayran.
