This really amazing thing just happened.... currently, my blog is listed the first in the MTV bloggers scroll.... Its basically this list of blog links people put up on mtv's website.
And I'm soo happy about it...no, i'm not being lame... this really is happy stuff for me... sadly, almost no one i know in real life is a blogger...and its 2 in the night right now... so i don't know who to call and tell!!!!
See, MTV has this thing called bloggers belt, which basically is a collection of blogs . What u gotta do is go to mtvindia.com, click on blogs.... then type in ur details and blog link to submit.... if they like it, they'll put it up on the list.....and i JUST saw that mine's up there, the first one!
So I just thought i'd write about it.
Woohoo for me!!
I'll put up a pic of the webpage... cuz I'm not sure how long my blog's gonna stay on there...
Hmm.. see that? as I said, not too clear, but hey, that's my name alright, "mohit" written in red.... "gurgaon" in white after that. The pic is basically the pink chaddi campaign from my I.random.pinkarticle. Go read it if u want click the name.
Below that, "being me" in white...
For my blog description there, i wrote "random thoughts that are even more random in words.."
Which is in a way true... cuz I write totally random stuff that crosses my mind.... and when the turn comes to pen it down, all i write is pseudo-interesting, almost-funny stuff ;)
Anyway, I'm happy about the mtv thingy!! My very own first ( small-time) literary achievement. ( which I think isn't a very tough thing to do , oh well)
I picked up this tag from another blog I was reading and thought it'd be a nice thing to write about.
