Bipasha Basu has found herself a new source of excitement - a website of her own with regular updates on her life.

Bipasha, who is as excited as she was when she signed her first film, says: "It will be maintained entirely by me. And it will have regular, almost daily updates of my life... my ideas, thoughts, observations, things that I want to share with my audience.

Not that I'll stop being media-friendly. I'm too media savvy to give up interacting in print. But yes, sometimes I do feel my words and thoughts don't reach my fans the way they are meant to.

"The need to express myself directly was there within me. It will have everything about me -- pictures of my family, jottings from my diary, everything that people wanted to know about me but didn't know where to look."

Bipasha intends to update the website daily even though her schedules might come in the way.

"I also intend to invite friends to write columns on my website. The interactive element will be really high. I'm made out to be this serious person when in fact I'm a fun person. I want to share my sense of fun with the people out there. I want to give them a chance to ask me anything I like."

A unique aspect of Bipasha's website would be an auction site. "Every month, I'll give away my stuff and the proceeds will go directly to the Make A Wish foundation, which I've been associated with for two years."

She's supercharged with the idea and declares her laptop to be her best friend. "On second thoughts, Susanne (Roshan) is my best friend. John? He can never be my best friend. He's my boyfriend. I intend to pore over the laptop between shots. So no more faffing on the sets."
