I think all of us must have seen the Lion King, but did you catch the lion king 1 1/2?Its about Timon and Pumbaa.As the story unfolds it takes us into some some scenes from The Lion King seen from Timon and Pumbaa's perspective.Its pretty funny! Watch it if you haven't already.
The same analogy applies to my experience here at Writer's Lounge.
As i shifted my blog (TSLP) from wordpress.com to wordpress.org , i was lucky enough that followers followed and with in few days traffic was good too.
I wanted more.
How to develop page rank?
Have back links!
My aim of joining Writer's Lounge was simple.Write a post and link it up to my blog and get a backlink.
My first poem was Expectations
I wrote a Post Script telling that my dad followed Ken Keyes
I always write a post script.
You can check my personal blog.
With in a short period I wrote my 2nd poem 'twins'.
Immediately after that i got my first 'stalker card' to leave Writer's Lounge.
I sent it to administration but they just told me to ignore it.
I was not very pleased with the reply.
I was all set to write a scathing blog about it all, unfortunately the moon light contest started.The rule was not to submit anything other than related to contest.
Let's Just say i was pissed!Mad , really, very very mad.
I wanted to write about the stalking cards!!!
So i wrote the poem Anonymously
I forgot to add the post script initially.
Not a single person from 200+ members commented.
The very next day , when i was not angry anymore and refocussed on getting backlinks...i wrote poem Stars
Here I added a Post Script letting people know i am not talking of my own experience.It made me realize that i should have done so for 'Anonymously' too, hence i add there "PS:views of a creepy guy"!!
This made the stalker very very angry.He left his usual guard of sending cards which would hide his IP.He actually visited TSLP and left a threatening comment.
Also de-abbreviating PS in his sickly manner.
I thought ...wow! calling him 'creepy guy' really got to him.
I was all set to send his IP to the cyber safety groups for banning.(i realize he must be sending it from a cyber cafe but with IDs being checked these days everywhere, it would not be long before he was caught.)
Unfortunately my co-blogger unknowingly deleted the comment.
Around the same time i added my photo to my profile.
I guess that or i do not know what, stalker realized i am not his PS.
He never sent me any cards or abusive comments again!
As i participated more and more at Writer's Lounge, it kinda grew on me.
I could feel the sadness. I could feel that it was something magical before.
I also realize that eveny one is very happy with PS's return.
I came for backlinks and i found very warm sweet group of friends.
And the alcoholic, depressed stalker that lives here....'come to me' (at TSLP)..i will show you some legal maza!!
