Anniversary week special guest post by Prateek Varma!
So it has been 2 years since Mayur shifted to WordPress. He started his innings in the blogging world on Blogspot in 2007, but didn’t take it seriously, until the creative bug bit him hard at WordPress and he has been at it since then. I was going through his earlier posts and I saw that no one has ever reviewed his blog. I know it will be puny of me to try and review a blog that has been around for quite a while and that gets as many hits a minute as the number of times I think about starting my studies in a day (I think about it a lot, so don’t scorn or sneer).
Now, this blog as I have already said and we all know has been around since 2 years now. And in those two years we have witnessed the growth of Mayur as a writer. A writer par excellent if I may add. He has shown versatility many would give their right arm to have. From witty articles to emotional love stories, his views on current affairs to writing on controversial topics, movie reviews to his own personal views, he has been there and done it. His love stories demand a special reference because I believe they are responsible for more than half the traffic on his blog. I have not read even a single one of these masterpieces; nothing against him it’s just that I don’t read love stories and watch romantic movies because of a personal reason or rather….……. But I do read the comments on it, and from them I can conclude that they must be awesome.
Not only a writer but Mayur is also a shutterbug. Another thing his blog is quite famous for is the POW (Picture of the Week). Again, the snaps are exceptionally well taken and each picture shows what a multitalented person Mayur is. Practice makes a man perfect and that saying is true for his snaps. Each new flash from his camera seems to produce an image better than the previous.
Furthermore, he has been quite supportive of other’s talents. I know many people who were inspired to write after reading this blog and the GPOW or Guest Post of the Week further strengthens my case.
The tagline of the blog says, “Not your glass of vodka.” Yes, it surely is not a glass of vodka, but a rather a table full of cocktails and mocktails. Everyone can find something of his/her liking.
In all I can say, that the immaculate writing skills, the acute sense for photography and impeccable and proficient way in which Mayur blends all these together to make the MaxMayur’s Blog is exceptional. It is this and his passion for writing that creates an essence of ensures that the reader would return back for more.
And now I propose a toast to the Max Blog and Max Mayur who created it. Happy Anniversary for the Blog and many more to come.
