It’s not easy really. First, we have the gomen telling us to shut up, to which we ignore. Then there’s a possibility of getting all of us registered so that we are well ‘watched’. Well, do you think they are not watching us now? Next, the gomen realised they can't get us registered, top that up with some brave souls setting up the National Alliance of Bloggers, so our biggest boss said existing law is enough to put us into trouble… translate… keep “telling lies” and you will be ISA-ed, sent your sorry ass to some hidden camp in Kamunting till you’re so scared your balls will fall off your crotch. Are you afraid?
Closer to home, I have to juggle the time between spending time with Jules, blogging and reading blogs. Trust me, it’s not easy. Some said I should just blog and don’t really need to read so many blogs. Hey… I dunno why but I have really developed a knack about reading blogs. I believe I am a people person. Why my line of work doesn’t really allow me to meet so many people and communicate with them, blogging and reading blogs have given me the opportunity. Therefore, I have to manage all that in our limited hours we have in a day. And did I mention work?
Next, blogging has caused me to lose quite a bit of sleep. This means very bad eye bags and of course, the much dreaded hair-loss. Consider that I already am putting up a “departing” hairstyle, that is quite an issue. Of course, then comes the usual I-am-sleepy-at-work feeling, to which I… ok, that’s not quite an issue. Never like my work anyway.
My friend kenninaz is certainly very surprise that I lasted this long. When I first told him about my intention to start a blog, he looked at me as a boring accountant and since he, being an IT person can't even keep his interest in his blog… how can I?
So, what exactly that keeps me going?
Well, for one, I love writing, I really do. But honestly speaking… all these really encourage me and kept me going…
Things like this, this and this.
I spoke to someone in my firm today, for the first time actually because he left a condolence message in those entries relating to my mom and I wanted to thank him. He told me As Zewt As It Gets is his favourite after kennysia and xiaxue. Wow, it certainly is very flattering.
Then I spoke to one of my ex-colleague and she said she now reads my blog ahead of mainstream news… wow! She also told me other flattering words but I think I shall not mention them.
On top of that, I also inspired 2 of my ex-colleagues to start their own blog. One has chosen to remain anonymous and has been actively blogging lately. The other just started, not sure if it will last.
Well, I will certainly continue but everyone burns out… and I certainly hope I don’t. Having said that, there will be a time where I will stop… or slow down.
P/S: Hmmm... just been awarded the "Thinking Blogger Award" by Kenny Mah. Wonder who I should award next.... anyone?
