Following the lead of actors like Amitabh Bachchan, Ajay Devgan, John Abraham, Aamir Khan and Shilpa Shetty, Vidya Balan now wants to become a blogger. The actress recently got herself a Toshiba laptop and has been surfing the net regularly. Says a source close to Vidya, "Earlier, she'd just long on to check her e-mails. But now she spends a lot of time on the net reading blogs, watching videos and staying in touch with world news."
The source continues, "She has been reading blogs of many stars including Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan. And she is planning to start blogging soon. She's looking into the blogs of many Indian and international celebrities and is getting a feel of the whole thing the design, layouts and what she wants."
The actress plans to blog about issues that bother her. She will also talk about her films and post pictures. There are no plans to start a website for now, she will only blog. The actress is currently not on any of the social networking websites (like Facebook or Orkut). Vidya admits, "A lot of people have been telling me to blog. I am toying with the idea."
After paragliding in Wai on her birthday in December, Vidya had enrolled for a 10-day workshop in Panchgani but had to cancel her plans as the shooting of Balki's Pa requires those dates. She says, "I love all kinds of adventure and water sports from paragliding to bungee jumping and had booked myself for a 10-day course in Panchgani but now the film needs those dates. Though I am disappointed, I am sure they will have another one again, which I will be able to attend."
