Barter system on the internet

A kind of order any society will presumably fail in the century ahead of us is this system of maintaining barter to influence our daily activities. Not to confirm any uncertainty, but I truly doubt our financial system to continue depending on banks entirely.

barter/ˈbɑːtə/ Learn to pronounce

verb

exchange (goods or services) for other goods or services without using money.”he often bartered a meal for drawings”

First of all, this system is very cute and friendly. If you don’t have your wheat with you, I won’t be polishing your shoes. Now, if you do have some rice, I can think about polishing one of your shoes. This hardly works in today’s generation for many reasons and the obvious one being – polishing shoes is a trivial act. What if the task was to maintain your blog’s appearance in exchange to writing content for another blog?

Do you consider bitcoin as the modern barter?

With the choice of wanting to have presentation over content, I see where this can lead to. A better looking blog, a read-able paragraph or just simply a better work of collaboration. This means there has to be that essential sense of ‘exchange’ to a collaboration. Moreover, this is what collaboration looks like on the internet but barely visible in the same format. Maybe we are the modern beings who follow barter without consciously addressing the system or referring to it as one. If we do acknowledge this fact, I can only imagine the quality in our content to rise and rise.

Would you be interested in working together, with the additional sense of a compulsive exchange? What would it take to feel at liberty when doing this kind of collaboration? There are many questions in my mind to even dream of bringing barter back to our lives. Anyways, this blog is only fun to me and I’m realising ways to make value and money from it. After I’ve saved the 96$ needed to start monetising here, I’ll make sure the advertisements make sense and more importantly to never distract my readers. If you can help me in any way (advice to monetisation, freelance, collaboration, donations, suggestions etc.) please come in contact with me, or just comment as you like. I don’t do this with the compulsive-work approach, so it might be helpful to you in considering that. If you know about any other person, blog or website in general talking about such collaborative work and friendly way to monetise, please feel at home to come in contact with me.

Let’s work, but not really for the financial purpose!

Is there a theme to this blog?

To make your blog popular, the first suggestion bloggers give is to have a “theme” to which readers will have a magnetic effect. Why would someone want to read your blog? And, when they do read, why should that person return the next day?

But, my question is a little consequential, why would you want your blog to be popular?

To me, having a popular blog does not mean good content. And, even good content does not mean a popular blog. Now, in my case, I prefer to work towards “good content” no matter how many thousands think otherwise. This is the sense I believe in, otherwise I would have a theme already for my blog. Except for the fact that there is story-telling, I don’t think my blog has ANY common theme across these articles.

If having fun is a theme, I’ve set that to myself and the blog. I’ll try to make sense out of this – and only if it means good to my writing. Otherwise, we’ll stick to watching Rick and Morty.

Creating at home

April was a very comforting month for the users of WordPress. While the world was biting it’s nails, we figured a way out of panic even if it meant only for a short period of time. I must say the panic otherwise would’ve been less shared and even chaotic to me.

This goes on to prove that believing blindly in whatever the world says would be my scary dream. Not a nightmare, but a scary dream.

Anyhow, there is a sense of support I saw among the bloggers during April. This community mainly stands on the grounds of creativity, experiment and having your own voice. I missed a lot of other good stuff this community believes in.

To me that is a dream community.

What I realised after doing the Daily Prompts in April is my capability. It remains a part of me.

I knew I can create like an artist. But, what I didn’t know is how consistent I could be at it. This consistency in return has only proved that it doesn’t matter how consistent you are.

I’d be doing this only if I want to.

When I feel like I don’t want to write something on the blog, I always have other stuff from the back of my digital closet to share with my readers. That’s mostly it. Having fun is the ultimate conclusion to having a blog.

Thank you for supporting me even if it’s just a comment or a like. You are awesome.

Altruism for the human in a pandemic

My new show ‘Involuntary Comfort’ is a podcast where I speak carelessly. I also want to hear from you. What do you think about it? What could be better? Which kind of stories do you love?


So, here’s the question I want to try and answer today: Is altruism possible in today’s world?

Firstly, the ‘possibility’ in this question is a valid variable. And secondly, the ‘world we live in today’ is a modern cue for obvious reasons.

Being selfless is practically a good way to deal with the coronavirus pandemic. However, it has a different sense to being selfless. Being careful about your safety will help you contain the virus and hence become selfless according to the definitions set by a pandemic.

If someone stays at home watching Netflix, work on their own, sleeping and discarding the choice to have a social gathering – they risk a judgement to be seen as someone who is self-absorbed. And, they are. This nowhere means what they’re doing is wrong if not correct. The point is they are less wrong than the ones going out which will make a huge difference to the dynamics of COVID-19. So, in a way they could not have been more right about this.

The last time I saw – there’s literally nothing wrong about caring for your health either.

If it means to be self-absorbed when all you do is care about others’ safety, then so be it – during when the right thing to do is exactly that. Because, you’re being selfless by giving up the joy of being outside. In the end you are helping everyone by staying put and in containing the killer.

The practical reason for this to be the only way out of the chaos is you won’t realise when you’re spreading it for real.

So, just don’t give yourself (and try for others) the chance to even risk spreading it. If you have to be out there, wear a mask for the sake of another life and eventually even yours. It’s not that hard if you’re not flippant towards humanity.

A part of why this could be beneficial to you is a fundamental acoustic in your mind. Those who have been staying at home can be proud (while having no guilt and without being selfish) to say these words out loud:

“I had no part in the mass killing. Directly or indirectly!”

This may seem offensive to those who are walking around like this is pre-coronavirus with the disguise of the times being post-coronavirus. Again, no one really has a vital part in the death of someone after spreading this virus. But, one can be responsible in the slightest ways possible for an infection. It’s up to personal belief whether you consider this as responsible enough to be murderous.

Here’s a perspective from ‘Barking Up the Wrong Tree’, and it says:

Looking at the research we see that during disasters, altruism is the rule. Selfishness is the exception.

Eric Barker on being self-less

Altogether, it seems like a concept hard to believe in (but very easy to understand.) It’s common to have varying opinions about this. What I don’t understand is – people choose to be carelessly selfish. And, specifically often complain about the economy and boredom for weird reasons.

It’s clearly falling down. The economy and your interesting life are both in deterioration. So, does this mean we need to have the bad guys backing the bad step? People who know barely about the working of an economy are using it to reason their time outside eating a pizza in their favourite cafe. Why not go to Italy? You’ll also help the global-economy of ‘ignorant reasons to travel’ while helping the exports for mozzarella. Sherlock, it doesn’t work that way.

Even though ICMR claims no community-transmission is happening, it’s hard to believe in these claims. Knowing the numbers increasing so rapidly it is seemingly an impossible reality we are being forced to face. In fact, the numbers are increasing for the first time in my city where it’s obvious enough and that’s why this article had to be published.


To be human right now is to let go of the joys for some days. You took the break, and it has to end somewhere. Let’s be honest, having your favourite chai on the road is only making you feel better. Not the economy.

However, it’ll be hard for the chaiwala to make a living if everyone stops drinking his tea. The point is these customers won’t feel slightly responsible when he was not suggested a better way to sell the tea during a lock-down.

Here’s how even the most vulnerable entities of this recession are solving their problems:

“We are thinking of starting ‘sev puri’ and ‘paani puri’ takeaways and supply our ‘chutneys’ hygienically packed to general stores which are open,” Sharma said.

From The New Indian Express

This goes beyond the tea. This is about making the seller survive and grow with the times we face. By doing this, you are helping yourself and the community.

But, a wise way to do this is by not risking any life you see. Especially your own.

Many need to stop making excuses to be out there. You are not helping if you don’t know how you’re helping the economy. If you do know how, understand the semantics of it to keep yourself safe out there. Wear masks to help everyone contain the virus and not to get rid of a fine. It’s about time we all became human.

Thank you for reading. See my artwork!

Dear Reader

How are you? I just wanted to sit down and put this on the blog. I have lots to say, and yet I don’t know which messages to pick. I’ll just keep on writing and everything will fall into place. Because, that’s what I know as a solution to everything. Maybe I am wrong, maybe… Continue reading →
