Do you think there is a real benefit for blogging?I gave some response at that time. But now I think I have the correct answer to the question: Blogging gets me homemade polis :-D!
Here is how:
A few days ago, conversation on gchat between fun blogger Rads and me went like this (English translation of Tamil phrases in italics):
i made polis ;)
me: Good good :-)
enakku venum :-( (I want some too)
Rads: bobbattus = bolis
me: can you fedex some over?
address tha (give your address)
me: aiii nejamaava :-D? (yippeee, really?)
Rads: yes re
me: ooooooooh super cool
Rads: give giev :)
me: wait me sending address immediately
**********Sure enough, yesterday in my mail box, I found a USPS package with Rads' return address on it. In a super sweet gesture, Rads had actually sent the polis I had asked for :-)! I broke into a huge grin and opened it. Inside were nestled three delicious polis :-). They taste absolutely super-duper delicious. Thank you so much Rads :-D!
I tell ya, if blogging is indirectly giving me such yummy returns, I should seriously consider taking it up full time ;-D!
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays folks :-)!
