I stopped blogging when I started working abroad. I am too busy is understatement. I can’t even finish a good book. I can’t even have an eight hours of uninterrupted sleep. I can’t even watch or read news about my beloved homeland. Now I am trying to manage my time though hard. When everything changes my fond of blogging sometimes sleeps but never dies. But I am afraid that now I can’t properly edit my blog posts as needed so bear with me.
Eight months more and my two years of stay here in the desert is over. I’ve learned a lot and I can say that I doubt if I am still the same person they used to know a year ago and counting. Some things permanently changed. For better, I hope.
Happy new year folks! I’ll be back in blogging. I almost forgot how to blog. <long pause. Thinking. Thinking. Aaah. Did I say that I almost forgot how to write a decent blog entry?> I just want to devote some of my precious minutes (in my very busy life) sharing some stuff I think worth sharing. I like to promise that I am going to blog less trashy from now on. Moreover, I am eager to maximize the use of my new bought toy. For the second time I bought a gadget from my own hard earned penny. Sorry, you may perhaps think it is the mere reason why I am back to blogging right now. Hehe. To brag about MY BRAND NEW INTEL CORE i5 OH SO AWESOME. THE AMAZING PHOTO IS TO BE UPLOADED LATER. I kid. I kid. Truthfully, I like to reconnect to cyberspace after my long period of death. I want to share my story and God’s story in my life because 2015 is gonna be our year. So cheers! Be excited. See you later.
This is quite surprising because only my family and some relatives know I have a very crappy blog and this message came from a classmate I seldom talked with. Strange. And it became more strange to figure that that classmate was pertaining to my old more crappier Anak ng Tokwa blog. Amusing. I didn’t actually do some real writing there, I only ranted and whined by means of putting words on a blog. So who would I inspire? 😉 Thanks though if that what she thought. Sometimes it really feels good to delude myself that I’m a great writer and I inspire a lot of morons. Who knows maybe she was right. Crap.
If you’re using Tumblr and abusing the privilege of reblogging from blogs that also came from another blogs, posting pictures of yourself in every angle, side view, front view, back view, you may not like what I’m about to write; free to leave.
I had a Tumblr blog a year ago and I can’t even remember the name ’cause I had a rough time overhauling and making it a fresh and sensible blog and not all about vain picture picture picture. It lasted for about months till I came to accept that it’s not for me. Reasons are:
I hate the idea of TOO MUCH reblogging, especially if merely photographs are to be reblogged. I know that there are a lot of picture worth reblogging, very funny and cute images worth sharing BUT if you only intend is to borrow (by means of reblogging) every single post you make it may signify that you don’t have an ounce of creative juice running through your veins. I adore creativity and uniqueness. I know there are also lots of Tumblr bloggers out there that write good, know how to spell right, ideas are original and photos they post aren’t purely from other people BUT they become SCARCE in Tumblr community.
Tumblr becomes a photo album. Apology but I think cyber photo album is more suitable term than photo blog. Sana nag-upload ka na lang ng mga picture mo sa Facebook o Twitter.
Old school ako. I stick to traditional practices of blogging. When you blog, it has to be more than two sentences. Jejemon way of typing is prohibited. You have to spell each word correct with proper punctuation (Oo, nagpapatama ako). When you’re into photo blogging, you use your own photos and it doesn’t appear like a photo album. Figure out yourself the difference. And reblogging is minimized. Uh, perhaps, I just got used to blog like this for many years but frankly, it is really annoying to see the way some people blog on Tumblr as much as I annoy you now.
I don’t discourage you to use Tumblr. I only want is to vent my opinions and distaste. You can also do this on your Tumblr blog, ‘Why I Hate WordPress’ and let’s be merry. For me, if you prefer to write like a pro, Blogger.com or WordPress.com are more appropriate. I haven’t tried Multiply and others but those are certainly way better. But if your only goal is to reblog cool gif photos then go, soothe/suit yourself.
I took a screenshot of this long ago ’cause I was convinced that I’ll blog about this in the future, and it happened. My Tumblr has been deleted. Cheers. 🙂
