Numerous websites get their image boosted by the number of quality bloggers on their rolls. Some sites even thrive on blogs. People spend more time on writing, reading and/or commenting on blogs than on any other activity. Blogs are age busters. You will find in the world of bloggers, twenties and sixties rubbing shoulders without any discomfort. It’s a place where you enjoy absolute freedom to say what you want. You can expend all your pent up fury on hapless individuals who write lackluster blogs. You can become a celebrity by following Scott Fitzgerald’s advice that “The easiest way to get a reputation is to go outside the fold, shout around for a few years as a violent atheist, or a dangerous radical, and then crawl back to the shelter.” It’s a forum where you can paint the rainbow with the colours of your choice. It’s an avenue for aspiring writers where you can have a guaranteed minimum of twenty fans, no matter what you write. If you are a fiercely ambitious writer hoping to become another Arundathi Roy by the turn of the year, there are methods available to boost up your image. The unseen bond that exists among bloggers is stronger than filial affections. You will find here husbands complaining about their wives and wives about their hubbies to total strangers. All kinds of inadequacies are discussed with unknown people. You find yourself developing a very strong bond with men and women whose real names are not known to you. You find that unknown people with strange names about whose whereabouts you have no clue whatsoever are a greater comfort and a closer ally than your life partners. There is no wonder, therefore, that more and more men and women of all ages and descriptions are drawn into the world of bloggers. But the problem is to keep your real identity a top secret if you wish to share your intimate problems with total strangers among the blogging community. Selection of a handle or ID, therefore, becomes a paramount importance. Every blogger wants to make his ID and Avatar very catchy as a bait to lure the bloggers to his fold! For those prospective bloggers speculating on a suitable handle or ID for them, here is a tip! What would gods select as their ID if blogging fever catches up with Heavens too? Here are some of them: The Mouse Rider The Hill Hopper The Wet Head SeaSupportMe The Missing Link The Lion King Bowbreaker Evergreen Hero Much m(h)arried male Sharp Shooter There is intense speculation about the real gods behind these handles. Hope you will be able to throw light on them! Now the gods have shown you the way, go ahead and select one to suit youself! And may your imagination run riot!
