Pakistan: Blog-o-success

As part of my extremely philanthropic nature, (which not only parallels but also surpasses the likes of George Soros, Warran Buffet and Bill Gates some say) I have decided to share with you a colossal secret, hidden for years by the high order of the Cyber Templar. Risking life and several much treasured bodily appendages, I reveal the secret of ‘How to write a decent blog post’.

But before I get into that, let me first address the main purpose of this post, which is to highlight the interesting articles from the Pakistani blogs. Fountainhead pens another brilliant piece teaching President Bush to say please.

Now that a thumping smack has been delivered by American voters to the backside of the Empire building hallucinations of your sponsors, leaving you presidential future effectively bowdlerized, you are well advised to start learning to say ‘please’ to lessen the pain of the remaining two years.

In order to write a decent blog post, an initial prerequisite must be met. Get yourself a blog as this is absolutely essential for writing a successful blog post. You can procure an economical (free) blog at any corner cyber grocery story. Having procured a blog, you now need to write something worth reading. This isn't easy let me tell you. I've tried for ages but it hasn't worked for me yet, but maybe you'll get lucky.

Windmill presents an enlightened view on the passing of the recent Women's Protection Bill. Sabizak also addresses the same topic but with a very logical and positive take.

That this has been passed by people who in their personal and ideological lives could not care less for the suffering of women, (would in fact and do perpetuate their subjugation in their own influence spheres in its worst possible forms), is ironic, but to some Machiavellian corner of my heart, quite satisfying.

Finally, in order to write a successful blog post, one must be astute enough to recognize a topical issue to write about. In order to test your perception for the appropriate subject matter, choose the most appropriate topic from the following list of recent headlines:
1- Nancy Pelosi – First Woman Speaker of House-Elect
2- Al Jazeera Launches English All News Channel
3- Armani Dresses Katie Holmes For Wedding

If you selected number 3 as your choice for blog dissertation, the success of your post is guaranteed. For those of you who are still unsure of your accuracy in selecting the right topic, do what I did in my latest post, write about every thing that pops into your head.
