This is the day I hoped (and feared) I would never have to face. When I took the decision to become a professional blogger, I took a vow not to ask for any favors from my blogger pals. When I saw the donate button on blogs, websites and forums, I never thought I too would have to put it up on my blog someday.
But, one has to face the reality. And reality is bitter. Am I paying the price for being audacious? Maybe. But reality is not going to deter me from being audacious. I believe in hope. I believe that struggling times lead to better times.
When it comes to survival vs honor, I am left with no other option but to choose survival. That’s what we all do, right?
If you people don’t support me now, probably, I will have to quit the very essence of my life – blogging. I hate to do that. I am sure you hate to see me do that, as well.
Let’s look at the positive side of this ordeal – Now I will know how many of you will stand by me, and how many of you will leave me. Only in difficult times, I can test the strength of true (blog) friends and well wishers. It is an opportunity for all of you to prove that blog pals are
as good as better than real-life ones. And yes, you’ll gain the good Karma of helping a struggling blogger.
Throughout history, we have seen that great acts of philanthropy have produced great people who in turn have made great contributions to society (later on).
I hope one day I’ll be able to say, “What ever I am now, I am because of my blog friends. Unlike the real-life ones, they supported me though thick and thin. They believed in me. They walked their talk. They are sheer gems.”
This is a historical moment. Each and everyone of you are at the cusp of creating history. The (future) world will be proud of all your contributions.
But today, I need your support. Your help. Your charity. Each and every small contribution to my cause will help me to survive. To strive. To make this world a better place. Go ahead and inspire me people – grab this is golden opportunity with both your hands. You’ve got an opportunity to be associated with one of the noblest causes on this planet – blogging.
Hence, with tearful eyes and heavy heart, I request you all to PLEASE DONATE . . . COMMENTS 😛 😀 😛
* I know you guys were super excited and couldn’t wait to gossip about my predicament, but what to do – your hopes of fun is now DASHED 😛
** This post is dedicated to all those fellow bloggers who are struggling to get comments, like me. These days, one can even earn money, but getting comments in blogs is a HUGE STRUGGLE!! I long for those days when we used to publish a post and comments raced away in double digits. Sigh. 🙂
