The lack of posts over the past 4 months is almost guaranteed to make my blog readership fall to zero. Strangely, I take quite a fair bit of pleasure in that. With Facebook and Twitter (along with all the associated voyeurism) dominating our lives now, it’s a huge breath of fresh air to be able to write somewhere away from all the noise.
I get introspective too often, and there have been so many positive memories and moments that have gone uncaptured for too long. So hello again, my dear blog. I’ll make an effort to write in you again.
And if anyone is still reading, Merry Christmas!
I wish I’ve done this earlier – removing the clutter from the previous interface and just leaving it clean and simple so that I’ll be inspired to actually write.
At last, I did.
Finally, my torrent of updates from my San Francisco trip earlier this month can begin. I’ll be posting random pictures, quips and adventures from my two and a half week trip over the next couple of weeks in no particular order. Stay tuned.
Meanwhile, happy hunting for the little ‘easter eggs’ (random doodles with my mouse) I’ve scattered around the site. Here’s your first hint – the navigation.
This weekend, I will embark on my mission to start writing again.
There was a sudden realization that this blog is an extension of myself. It’s where I store my memories, share my quirky moments or just be plain ol’ rambly (and occasionally crappy) me. Reading my past blog entries, I suddenly see a huge gaping hole where 2011-2012 was supposed to be.
I was well and alive, for sure. With loads of exciting moments happening in my life. At least I knew 2011 in general was exciting, but when I try to narrow down the specific moments which played a part in making 2011 awesome, I draw a blank. Well, I know the general stuff, like milestones. But … the little moments were gone. Kaput from my memory totally.
Normally, I write these things down, so I can remember them later. But, I’ve stopped.
Shite. Maybe I should start again.
And take a whole new approach to writing as well – little snippets of text, more photos and perhaps, start doodling because it’s what I’ve always liked to do but never got around to it.
For starters, I’ll revamp the this blog design for simplicity and remove all distractions … like that horribly unflattering upside-down illustration of me. (Why oh why did I torture my virtual self for a year by forcing excessive blood flow to my brain?!)
3 more days to the new Brendalogy blog. I’m excited already.
