Maintaining a blog is like being in a relationship
[Picture credit: Sorry picture file was saved in my folder and I forgot where I got it from]
I’ve read somewhere that maintaining a blog is like being in a relationship.
You know, something along that line.
Most relationships entail love, commitment and attention; a blog too.
I love to blog.
It keeps my friends posted. It keeps my sanity. It keeps my memories.
I could never have remembered so many events if not for my blog. I’m a rather forgetful person, so you see blogging helps to recollect my thoughts.
How could I forget the few internet friends I’ve made from my readers?
When I don’t blog often enough, I feel that I owe my frenz and readers some updates and bite-sized entertainment after a hard day’s work.
When I don’t blog, I feel constipated.
When I don’t blog, I just don’t feel good.
I’ve got the love, the commitment and the attention for my blog.
What else does a relationship need?
Hopefully I’ve got the time to blog more.
And here comes the irony.
I’ve been on this page since 2004.
My stories, my feelings, my memories stashed away in a wonderful cache of reminiscence; in old school wooden drawers archived neatly.
However, the layout is getting stale. I don't know how to fiddle around with the new blogger.
I'm seeking a more obscure url. I'm too easily found ever since Charmaine's plight came into public. I don't quite care who read my blog as whatever I dare type in public are things which are fine to be left that way. Yet I've to exercise some caution too.
I've been getting spam comments on an average of 3 per day. Links to websites, autobot language, unintelligible English that seem to be written from a translator beam. I simply do not publish them but it's really sickening having to do this frequently.
My extreme tracker has stopped recording accurately by 50% ever since I missed the upgrade period. I'm anal and I don't like it when both my trackers do not tally in figures.
My blogger photo storage bandwidth is at its last 20%.
Nitpicking on these, I’m thinking of moving somewhere else.
A fresh leaf from a book.
Yet, I’m just too sentimental.
Maybe I will move. Maybe I won't.
Don't be surprised either way should you see a long hiatus or continual updates.
