It’s exactly a week ago when I decided to create a blog account in wordpress. I’ve been maintaining a blog in Friendster since 2007 but I felt like it doesn’t reach a wider audience.
Writing has always been my refuge. I want to affect people who might be interested on what I’m writing the way some people inspired me with theirs. But I am not saying that I am a good writer because I know I’m not. I still have so many things to learn. Every time I hop from one blog to another, I realize that there are still lots of stuffs to explore and write about. And every time I post an entry, the sense of fulfillment that I feel is priceless. I have been trying to find an avenue where variety of minds, opinions and beliefs meet. I found it here. I give my two cents worth on what the other people are writing and I get my own share of theirs in return.
Working on a graveyard shift has already been a usual thing for me. What I’ve been doing before had always been predictable and routinary. I go to the office, wait for calls from our customers hoping they will not be irate or unreasonable, watch online movies, surf other porn sites, and edit my friendster account until I felt like I’ve already memorized all the tabs as well as my friends’ profiles. I’ve been doing these things for the longest time until a week ago.
Consider me a convert. Now, I read other people’s writings and am continuously fascinated by them. There are so many topics to reflect and write about. I have yet to write an entry which can touch the hearts of many people like boni’s ‘basta…I’ll be home soon’ and revsiopao’s ‘tatlumpu’t syam.’ I have yet to learn from coolwaterworks and dakilangislander on how to take breath-taking pictures. I also want to write an entry about cancer awareness which Karmi’s Kundiman and King’s Sound of My Heart already have. Kengkay’s and Reynaelena’s blogs, on the other hand, continuously surprise and amaze me with their topics. Given the chance, I would like to learn from brotherutoy, geisha, mangbadoy gandanghari, khzr4u, jorge, winkie and chaospilot (see ‘Kasiyahan kay Jollibee’) how to inject humor in my posts because their entries made me smile at one point. Byron’s One Fake Life teaches me that life is indeed full of twists. I would like to ask Ron on how he made his Coffin Rock page superb. Lastly, I would like to get some tips from angel, ♂ nygelle, walongbote , livingstain, sandimartin, vanvan and panaderos on how to make my entry better because they write their everyday reflections sincerely.
