my contribution at merdeka blogger project 2006
the theme for the project this year is about my blogging experience.
The word blog is indeed my own four-letter word.
I started when I read about it in the newspapers. I later researched on it and it seems that blogging is not that bad after all. I gave it a try at first with Xanga. Its easy as I do not have to mingle abotu with the layout and things like that. I met a friend through Xanga who taught me a lot of things but has been on a long hiatus from the internet.
It should be the year 2002 when I started. Cannot really remember that well. I have been blog hopping since then. First with Xanga, then comes Blog-City, then Blogdrive, Diaryland, Pitas, and eventually with Blogger. On second thought, I might open a second blog with Wordpress.
2006 is my 4th year with Blogger. I myself could not believe that I have been blogging for so long. It is a personal blog about normal happenings. Now I blogged less about what I do for the day like the very first time I started. Will be opening a blog on the postcards I receive from a postcard exchange site soon.
I have learnt a lot through blogging. I improved on my English, my writing skills, organization of words, etc. I guess my second blog will be in Bahasa Melayu, that way I can improve as well. I actually matured a lot in my thinking by reading other blogs which eventually able to influence the way I write.
Blogging allows us to know other bloggers from other parts of the world. It allows us to exchange information on certain issues that I might not have even thought of. It is a good platform to learn, accept and understand.
Freedom as a blogger? Obviously, even if it is a personal blog, you want to still maintain professionalism through blogging. I believe that blogging is not a platform to condemn a person or a country. Blogging is suppose to promote a healthy relationship.
I guess my four-letter word will always be my faourite!
