It’s been a while since I wrote something from my heart instead of the head. It sure brings back memories of my hard headed-ness, the lonesome feeling and unbounded by these four walls. Nowadays, I had to literally brain-to-mouth filter before I click ‘Publish’. Yes, we were young and free.
Back to the point, I have two favorite blogs I love most. They talked so openly about they’re emotions, reading it feels like a best seller from non sci-fi section. They are;
Seriously, I missed those two. During my busiest hour, I’d put a star and come back to read thoroughly. I love the flow of language and the dynamic story telling pace. It’s as if they sat right across the table, spilling beans all over the place.
The new breed of blogger lacks these skills. Mostly write for money and busy creating a ‘brand name’, with me included (heads down), ashamed of course. Not that I hate them, but they constantly reminded me that I had to swim with other fishes in the stream, else left behind. Keeping update has finally taken a toll on this 28 year old boy. I can hardly keep up the pace they are revving at.
I just want to sit back, let my hair loose with both feet hanging at the edge of a bridge. Feel the wind touching my face and rethinking about things that needs my fond attention.
I guess I’m just old fashioned.
ps: ZA and CDO to please don’t stop writing. People like you makes me feel normal.

“… things that needs my fond attention.”
am I a thing? hahaha.
I cant deny it, I miss blogging like those old times. I can’t believe that I’ve came to a point where I have to reconsider what I’m about to publish. I guess I should just make a new blog and be free to post whatever I want since nobody’s gonna read it. haha.
Same here. Thinking of rewriting the whole NH. It turns out different from what I expected.
fond attention – not referring to you.
Oh dear. I just blogged something so similar to this a couple of days ago. Reflection time, eh? I miss blogging in 2007/08.
Same here! Wayy different in 2007-2009
Thank you for this.
I been gone a long time but it is nice to know that I still have at least one reader left =)
My normal traffic hit is 3 to 4 visitors a day. Not that I don’t want an influx of unknown people coming over and read what I had in mind, but this makes me blush a bit.
I think, you should write from your heart. That will make you a distinctive blogger.
Thanks for the compliment. I feel alive too :P)
If those 2 ur fave blog, ur NH is my fave 1!
But yeah blogging has become discrete since I first blog on 2005. This make sense.
A big fan ! 🙂
If you compile this into a novel or some sort, I’ll make sure I’ll buy it and get you to autograph for me.
Wait, ade influx ke? These days I’m not sure of my visitors anymore. Most are like scan bots with no comments (not that I really care).
My biggest mistake was showing how I looked like. That was pretty bad.
So you are Syukur’s wife! I’m you knew, we’re the same batch in MCKK.
Being no 1 is kinda overrated, but thanks for the confidence 🙂
