About

My firstborn gave me the title of Cybermom when I began nagging him through emails while he was in college. The rest of the family also complained that I nagged. I can’t help it; it is part of me. But what with the boys having flown the coop, the poor Lord and Master (L&M) was left to bear the brunt of all that nagging. Then the younger one came home on a holiday and had a brainwave. He started a blog for me so that I could go online and nag the world at large!  When he asked me to give a name to the blog, I didn’t have to think twice – and so Cyber Nag was born.

Nagging is actually an art if you ask me: You have to pick up the object carefully. Otherwise you are completely ignored. The golden rule is: Never ever nag directly. Make neutral statements about things that bother you to the world at large. Nagging can get things done, ask an expert. Keep reading my posts and you will become an expert too!

On my blog, I nag about things that make me react to them in some way and consequently make others react too.  Sometimes the Cyber Nag will take you back in time; at others you might just be living through the event; you will cry with me and you will laugh with me too.

So welcome to my space, read my posts and give me your comments and criticisms so that I can come back and nag you some more!

      Welcome here Giribala. I am so relieved that you said ‘Nag Devata’, and not Nag or Nagin a la Mallika Sherawat :D

    Excellent! Like the made-over look, and, of course, your posts….and at 60+, waiting for 2 super-achiever daughters to ‘fly the coop’ so that I too can encourage their super achiever mom to take to blogging………

      Thank you for the compliments. II will promptly pass on to the younger one the one for the makeover and keep for myself the one on my posts :) Why wait for the girls to fly the coop? I am sure a super achiever is fully capable of multi-tasking, including blogging :D

    I was wondering who Zephyr266 was and now I have found you, Cybernagging could be a little bit risky inside My Gothic Realm but guess what? I am going to let you in and see if my Skeletons take to you, of course the Zombies can be a tad aggressive but as I have already mentioned that you will be calling by, I think that you should be reasonably safe, just watch out for the Vampires… Perhaps bringing a pack of garlic chewing gum could be useful but that is optional :) I hope that when you call by that you enjoy your adventure, but remember my Space is rated as an eighteens and above so there could be something naughty, or even a tad wicked inside so you have been warned :) lol

    Be good now and enjoy your weekend :)

    Hi,

    Thanks for coming by my blog. I have not yet gone into your postings here. But glancing the comments here, I understand that your following is pretty good. I hope to know about the “art of nagging”, I mean in a constructive way.

    1. Zephyr Post author

      Oh yes, I do — I mean the art of nagging :) For instance, I will keep nagging you till you put in an email subscription option on your blog. :) Would you call it constructive or not?

    I like what I read here, Zephyr and will learn more to nag my family in a proper way…! Very rarely, I advice people. I keep on nagging about only one thing…my husband’s walking in the morning!

    I too learn emailing…using computer, after my sons left abroad for their studies! I find it easier to advice/nag (oh, god, I too am a nagger, I think!) in emails than in person!

    Will come back to read some more interesting topics!

      Ha ha. You are not the first one to be fooled by that name. Now that you know what the Nag stands for I do hope you’d be ready to subject yourself to some good old nagging :D

    Your ‘about me’ page has the most comments I have ever seen on any blog. Not only are they a testimony to the love everyone has for you but also, lets face it, because people want to learn how to nag effectively. The Indian education system being deplorably inadequate in this area, one finds no teachers to teach this very alluring art. I do believe you have create a unique niche for yourself Zephyr! I am impressed out of my socks!

    I am VERY pleased I sought your blog today. This is going to be a fun place for me, I know. Now for some posts!

    PS: And I LOVE it that you are on wordpress. Blogger blogs are a bit of a pain to comment on. :P

      Great to have made the connect, as they would say, Dagny :) I have a new blog to read regularly in yours too. (I might not be posting comments regularly though) As for my nagging skills, the long suffering family, especially the L&M would testify to its efficacy :D I do hope you like the posts enough to keep coming back. I agree about WP comments.
