A little more than one year ago (372 days to be exact), this blog was born. When I look back, there was no clear focus, no clear topic, or even a clear purpose for this blog. It was my original intention – I would just write anything that came to me or that might potentially interest any reader here. Then, I was surprisingly productive. I know many may not think I am productive at all in comparison to other bloggers, especially, when I had been silent for almost a whole month (26 days). However, the I in real life do not like to write anything, and when I have to or am forced to write, it will take me a long time to write a short paragraph.
The reason — writing is hard for me because I always have many “voices” in my head trying to have those ideas heard or written. Every time I will have to first consider each of them, select ideas that I want to include, put selected ideas in the order I want, and last write them down with appropriate word choices using my limited English vocabulary. Afterward, I will have to read it, edit it again and again. Thus you see, writing is really time consuming for me.
One year later, despite the longest “silence”, I am still very happy about what I have accomplished. If not this blog, I would never think of and thus share certain issues, certain ideas, certain dreams, certain things I love and care. By the way, the reason behind my longest silence is that I have been busy lately, and so I don’t have my blog on my mind – meaning that I was not thinking of what to write. Sorry about that. If you had me on your MSN list, you would know that I was not even online often.
Once again, thanks all of you for spending time reading my ideas, my writing, my blog in the past one year, and thanks for all the comments because all the comments are what enrich my blog and what make it special.
