Blogging Thoughts 2021

What is there to blog when you can Vlog?  Oh, wow!  Vlogging is the new cool.

Perhaps the pandemic changed the internet landscape in just a year's time.  Maybe I have to revive my youtube account and maybe, hmmm...

Actually, the reason why I updated my site today is just to see if blogger still function as it used too.  It may not have the influence as it used to.  But nothing changed much really.  I just need to make some slight tweaks. Perhaps, a new template. 

Should I write more?  I actually laughed at myself trying to answer this question.  To my few subscribers out there:  Are you still blogging?

Grammar Police

In the past, grammar police are all over the blogosphere.  They don't bash you for how you look, but at how you write.  Trying-hard bloggers would often have sleepless nights trying to edit, and re-edit their own posts.  If content is King, then they made sure their content is not badly written.  Some even went to the extent of hiring professional editors. Why not?

For the simpler bloggers like me who didn't dream of stardom, we just write whatever comes to mind.  No edit, no headache. Insult to readers?  No way.  We simply write for ourselves, for our own sanity.  Readership is just a bonus.

But sometimes, in my free time, I reread some of my past posts.  Why am I not editing these posts? It's embarrassing to admit, so I just smile at my blunders.  If these were Facebook posts, maybe I really have to check and recheck my grammar. Good thing I blog in anonymity.

So where are the grammar police nowadays?  Maybe they are now into some new social media platforms.  I don't miss them anyway.

What's Up 2019?

I am not sure what I am going to write today.  Whether someone reads this post or not, it doesn't matter anymore.  As you can see, my love for blogging was gone a long time ago.  I wrote 321 posts   from 2006 to 2009. But for the last 3 years, this is only my 7th post. What's the sudden urge to write now?

I have not visited any of my friends' blog too.  Whether they still exist or not, I am not sure. My blogroll was long gone.  If I want to find them, I have to dig deep in my previous posts and their comments.

Some of them, I followed in twitter. But some have also retired from twitterverse. I hope they're all alive and well.

As for my blogging existence, I don't exactly know what to do.  What am I going to write again?  Same leftover thoughts?  Same soliloquy?
