No Tags Please

Well,how do i begin?I have been thinking for sometime to broach a delicate issue,but just couldn't seem to find the right way to do it.So after thinking for a long time-(10 minutes is pretty long for me) I decided to take it head on.After all,what the heck,you people are my friends,so why be courteous and polite?

The thing is-about tagging.You see I don't like tags.Tag posts are extremely stupid and girly.It makes me feel like filling out a slambook.And boy,did i hate slambooks!!!I still do!!So basically my point is that tag posts are extremely corny and juvenile-like slambooks.It's just a personal opinion but there it is!!Did I say I dislike tag posts??I take it back...I LOATHE TAG POSTS!!They are generally extremely long,and they don't provide much entertainment to the reader as well.And I am not saying this just off-hand.Quite a few people told me that they positively dislike tag posts.

Another thing about tag posts is that they can ruin the mood of your blog-Take for example,my friend Atindriyo's blog "Barbaric,Mystical and Bored"-this blog is full of awesome poems(people do check out his blog-you will find the link in my blog's i follow list).So all of a sudden you throw in a stupid tag post-and the platform of romanticism and surrealistic nature of the blog completely crashes down.

However these are just my opinion.No offense to all those friends who tagged me.You guys are awesome...and you totally rock!!!But,do me a favour,no one please tag me in your posts from now on...I get sick of doing those long posts in which i find no interest in at all.And that's saying something coz if i don't get interest in something,chances are that nobody will.That's about it.Au Revoir.

P.S-Since the people who tagged me read the previous tag posts-I am deleting them coz I was nearly assaulted a little while back by two of my friends who read that post... :P

Ya...I agree with you anish...these tags r sometimes very irritating...but look at the brighter side..it doubles the fun on the cost of your little effort..!!
One more thing, I will not stop tagging you...no matter u lyk it or not!!

totly agree wid ya

Well I agree with you...partly.
Coz writing a post about what brand of shampoo you use right after you wrote this heart-warming story seems a little odd.
But look at the bright side of it-

These posts are usually funny and you don't need to rack your brains to answer tags.They make for some good light reading.By tagging other people your friendship with other bloggers becomes stronger.And there's this feeling that even though different people might be blogging about different stuff they all have some common aspects.

Anyway did you notice I did not tag Atindriyo?That's coz he doesn't like tags.
And that's the whole point isn't it?
Do them if you like 'em.
I'll tell you why I take up tags...that's because my blog is for all kinds of readers.I never intended to target a specific reader base.It's for people who like stories,poetry,anecdotes,humor,musings...everything.
I just always make sure there's a li'l something for everyone. :)

On a different note I'd whole-heartedly agree with you.Tag posts are kinda lame. :P
