Experiment 1


March 24, 2016 by Preeks

I did some experiments to understand my blogging patterns better. Here are the results:

Experiment 1

Aim: To analyse why I blogged during the Blogathon, but stopped after that.

Apparatus: Every device on which I access internet – Phone, iPad, office laptop, home laptop, a little bit of brains, time.


1. In the week after the Blogathon ends, open Blogger.
2. Start typing something, then delete.
3. Close Blogger.
4. Repeat the same on every device for 3 days.
5. 5 Days later, while driving, ask yourself these questions. 

  • Can I write a post about Traffic? You have done that twice already. Or thrice.
  • Can I write a poem? Really? Again?
  • Can I just post a pic or a graph or a drawing? Done, done and done.
6. Gradually, stop thinking.
7. Ten days after blogathon, forget that you own a blog.
8. Two weeks after blogathon, open the blog and ogle at your own posts. How could I write all this?
9. 20 days after blogathon, get busy at work to avoid thinking about blog.
10. 1 Month later, feel guilty and do some introspection.
11. Note down all observations.

1. Pattern of Blogging was noted to be as follows:

2. Quality of posts was seen to follow this pattern:

3. Surveys showed the reasons for not blogging as follows:

There seems to be no other freakkin way out of this than to take up another Blogathon. That’s right. Get your lazy ass back to Blogger and embark on another month long endurance. 

And so, after much thinking and analysis, I have decided to take on the April A to Z Blogging Challenge. Because apparently, that’s the only way I will write.

Wish me luck. 

Also, it seems, my blog completed 7 years this month! Oh My God. Seven years! Seven year itch is tickling me now.
