Monday musing - Driving Traffic

So I notice a bit of obsession with increasing traffic into my blog. Very similar to what I had when I first published jyotirlinga.com. I wonder if this is alright, good thing to have? I kinda doubt it. When we feel particularly enchanted with a task, we want to share it and spread the word I guess, thus the need to increase traffic. But when other ulterior motives drive us, wherein we are writing to drive traffic into, that is not justifiable. If I am able to stick to the topic, then it is OK. The proof is in the pudding - jyotirlinga.com gets twice the traffic in comparison to this blog, even though this blog has tags all over the map.

I do belive all this glitz - audio, video, links - is just unnecessary. Sticking to the topic simply and venting the feelings/thought processes in their raw forms is what qualifies a blog - esoteric blogs like this one in particular.

Aren't we all scared though of doing a dump of our inner most thoughts? Just gives me the shivers thinking about what that would be like.

Welcome to the spirituality blog

This blog is an offshoot of a website that I had conceived as a result of the spiritual grace and resultant inspiration during Shivaratri Y2K (http://www.jyotirlinga.com) on the joy of Shiva Bhakti and my quest for spiritual progress. Not finding the time (yep, bad excuse!), this blog suits me fine in quickly adding content... my spiritual forays and thoughts - helps log them too. My spiritual journey started with Hinduism and it's simple stories/ teachings as far back as when I was a 2nd grader, with Lord Shiva and has now found convergence with Advaitism / Duality. The Advaitism gurus like Bhagwan Ramana Maharishi, Nisargadatta Maharaj; they have provided that spiritual boost of energy in many lagging moments and have tremendously influenced me ... little baby steps at a time... that will hopefully all lead upto a final crescendo. The merits of satsangh are many!
