Let me introduce myself. I am a fun-loving and committed blogger who has been posting regularly for the past four years. There has never been a day with writer’s block or bad posts that receive no “likes”. Nothing else has ever been this smooth-sailing.
Oh, who am I kidding!
Regardless of whether you are new to this blog or have been at the edge of unfollowing this blog for the past few years, let me introduce myself again. I am an amateur blogger who is honestly really bad at keeping up with even one post a week. Despite the big FOUR that this blog has aged to, it is definitely subpar as compared to many bloggers out there who have the same number of years of “experience”.
Blogging is a lot like exercise regime. Even though I may be running for at least five years now, but what matters most is my frequency of doing it. Another person may have just started a new year resolution to stay fit; but if (s)he has been sticking to the exercise routine three times per week, (s)he would still be in a better shape than my lazy and procrastinating self who has been “too busy to run” and only managed to get outdoors once a month.
Diet is also a very, if not the most, important factor in exercise regime. In fact, it is more important than the physical exercise itself. In blogging term, the way to manage our dietary intake is to manage the media we consume daily. Like it or not, the way we think and speak and write is largely influenced by what and who we are exposed to day-by-day. So the next time you want to use a certain lingo from a movie or a tweet, be sure the filter and check on the meaning of the word before blabbering freely.
Where were we?
Pardon the momentary distraction. One once said, “not all those who wander are lost”.
I hope it’s not too late now to start over, to make time to ponder upon life and put it down in writing, and to nourish the mind with quality “food”.
Food for thought, anyone?
May the FOURth be with you all,
