That's a new post on a new blog that I'm writing for Indiatimes. I should have called the blog Manoranjan Planet but during a particularly tequila fueled brainstorming session I decided to call it Line of Sight (LoS) instead. Don't ask me why - its the first time I've become less fun and more staid after a few drinks.
I'm doing this blog for a number of reasons. I wanted to try out something different. I was curious to see how to build a blog in a crowded space. I wanted to bring irreverence and wackiness to a generally well-behaved section of the media. I wanted to see if I could score a press pass to go see Indian Idol.
Will I succeed? Will I fail? Will I get my ass sued? Will people bitch me out? You can watch me humiliate myself on that blog - massive risk taker that I am. Speaking of which, let's start with the artwork. Bad enough! Comments? Moderated! But I'll be gaining more control over style and format and hopefully over the type of content I can put out as the weeks go by and will have the opportunity to put some changes in place.
If you have some spare cycles I'd love for you to read LoS and tell me what you think.
What does this mean for the Drift? I'll have less time to update it. But it'll free me up to write some really nasty posts - hey how about that last one?
