Ok, so I admit it.

I was wrong. Go and do your little victory dances, enjoy it while it lasts, but hurry back cause I'm not done here.

Today I discovered that there are blogs out there that are actually on interesting thing. Seriously!

Ok, so maybe I was slightly quick to judge but the kinds of blogs I had been exposed to didn't exactly attract me. Of course, I knew about the political/religious blogs but those aren't really topics that hold my interest for long at a time (not long enough to keep me reading through a whole post, much less the comments). This scene is more for my mother, the blog guru of my family.

What really repelled me from blogging where the ones I saw a lot of during my A-levels. Every blog I saw was a dear diary type, the topic of which being either of the "My life is hell! I didn't get x grade/ mom won't let me do x" or the "I got so drunk and slept with someone whom I don't know, Wohoo". No, none of this attracted me at all. I've always found this quite pointless and very egocentric.

While all blogging is probably egocentric to a level, these blogs that I've actually found interesting are on much more interesting than the dear diary or news types. The blogs I enjoy are the ones that share the thoughts of people who write on topics I like, such as writing, pets, hand crafts, art or technology, just to name a few. Of course there are still plenty of blogs out there that aren't really that interesting but finding the few that really are is quite exiting. :D

So wish me luck as I put my (cyber) walking boots on and begin my journey through the great wood that is the blogsphere.

Few of the blogs that caught my attention and might be worth a bit of yours:
Pink Ink (don't you just love the name?)
Unbilled Time
Shapely Prose


  1. I too was reticent to start blogging as the vast majority of these things are inane, banal and egocentric - but not the type of egocentric that is interesting, that allows you to better understand the inner workings of a person but the type that is a mirror of their outer shell, of the person they want other people to see. Which is in my opinion is almost always a shit person.

    Your blog is of the former type, which is beautiful. I look forward to reading more of what you write.


  2. Wow, thanks for the shoutout, Faharis. I have been blogging for a year and I know I haven't exhausted blogs to read, but I have seen some really interesting things out there.

    I am always floored when I read something that makes me realize that deep down I have so much in common with others.

    Nice blog you have here :-)

  3. Love my new title....
    And as your guru I can tell you that this post, as interesting as it is....is getting old, its time to blog again darling :)

  4. I'm with you in my hating of dear diary type of blogs. Good luck with your trip through the "great wood that is the blogosphere", and don't get your boots dirty.
