“Seriously, you can make money out of it!!… That’s what I said to my dear friend, Mish, after reading her Blog for the first time. But, as days gone by… as her Blog changed (to me) from an interesting piece of writing, to a “must open” whenever I log on to the Internet, it slowly dawned on me that, while so many of us have so much to say about everything, only a selected few have the grit and stomach to actually say it (or write it) out loud for all to read. I, for instance, would chiefly grumble and bitch (verbally)… “Oh! I’m so disgusted by…”, or “I love it when…” or “… was the greatest experience in my life….,” without making any material impact or effect on those ears I abused and bored.
I once said to my better half, “How great it would be if I can blog.” And recently, it changed to, “Well, why can’t I blog?” And she retorted, “Why don’t you?” There are so many things to say and to express, yet so little opportunity to actually do it. But if I am to Blog, what would the theme be? What should I write about? I don’t think I’m skilled enough a writer to mould my opinions or stories into something really substantial and worth reading, or better still, worth pondering by others? Would it be just a waste of time and space?
It has been years since I toyed with the idea, asking back and forth within myself, the relevance of me, Blogging. Well, here (finally) is the answer: I’ll take my chances. I’m gonna do it!! I’m gonna gripe and moan, and grumble and bicker on-line. I’m gonna praise and condemn, share and spare on-line!! And most importantly, I’m gonna write about things that touch my HEART. And I fervently pray to God, to guide my hands and my mind, so that I’ll always stay frank and true, and that what I’m gonna write can benefit myself and others who happen to read it. Therefore, I humbly post to you, The HEART.
