First Post for 2011.on January 22, 2011 at 5:55 am
It’s been almost half a year since my last update on this site and I realize the longer I delay posting -partially due to lack of time, the inability to pick the right stuff to blog about nor craft the right way to present it, and/or just plain laziness – the harder it becomes to upload something. Anything. Frustratingly, I believe I’ve blogged about all this before in my last ‘comeback’! And, hopeful as I may be of doing a much better job this time around, I suspect patches of inactivity will still continue to occur in the future.
So why bother, you may ask, my dear faithful reader/s? Why keep this personal blog site going? Why not just shut this site down and hang out over at Facebook?
Well, firstly I believe in maintaining an online presence, not just as a profile on Facebook (which for me is more about catching up on friends and finding out what they’re up to) or LinkedIn (a good but strictly professional network space), but a place of my own where I can ramble about semi-relevant things. And upload stuff I’ve worked on that showcases my interests and capabilities. Not forgetting the small tweaks, make-overs and occasional overhauls that I am free to subject the website to.
This place pressures me to update my portfolio, create more personal artwork and hopefully gets me some feedback on what connects with people (and what doesn’t) and how I can improve even more. It makes me want to be able to write about matters I’m interested in without getting too bogged down by details; to keep things informative yet concise. It is my motivation. My personal outlet.
So here I am putting some things up as a resumption of my website activity in 2011. Picking up where I pathetically left off. I do have a few Monologue sketches of MRT passengers I did a few months back that I’ll scan and upload [DONE!]. And there’s the Seoul Korea study trip in December 2010 I took with my students that I can write about a little click on the link for my write-up at the school website
Until my next post then (I promise it won’t be as long a wait)!
