Moving on

“Think global, act local” is fine. But I wish for a community with “think local, act ultra-local” as the goal. That is taking me over to “Praja – Bangalore“. It is a new site – still infant – where we blog to start with, and later, once a community gets going, deliver the sound bytes to those who can do something with it. After all, whats the point in blogging in vacuums when every other authority of note has a complaint, suggestion and RTI cell!?

For most bloggers, writing is only a moonlighting activity, not a day job and I am no exception. That means, you can’t sign up to blog at multiple places and fool yourselves.

Before I move on, I wanted to thank Metblogs readers for tolerating all those posts. It’s been fun blogging here, watching the readership numbers swell, and meeting some like minded folks. There definitely is a need for blogging communities like this where you get to hear “real” stuff from the ground about everything Bangalore, or shall I say Bengaluru. Cheers!

    Had to happen sometime rite SB? B’lore metblogs was getting really cluttered with all kind of junk. BTW the new website looks really good. Good luck and keep up the good work.
