Why do I blog?
I first encountered "blogging" when I was browsing MySpace and they have this new feature. 1.} I was thinking of trying it out and have my online journal. I was 16 back then, ignorant and pretty much engrossed with IRC-ing. I was basically, in front of the PC most of the time, because I assist in my parent's Service Center.
My first post was March 6, 2004. I only succeeded in having 5 posts, because after my posts we(me and the firstborns with their family) were "shipped" to Cebu for a wedding and our "going back to Davao" was pretty much endangered because we were encouraged to stay for a month or so at what we called the "Mission House". So, we lived with our spiritual family for a month with no internet connection. I think I only got to online once for that month and that was to stay online in IRC and check Friendster. Blogging in myspace was long forgotten.
Then, I was invited by Avy here at Blogger and started my own blog April 19, 2005. * 1st post *. I only managed to post one entry and then I forgot everything about it for a year, since I'm pretty much consumed with IRC and all my focus went there.
May 9, 2005, I also opened another blog in Friendster when they added a "blog" along with the "photo album". It became my-not-so-regular-blog, since blogging did not infect my system yet.
One time early 2006, I was browsing the internet and chanced upon blogs with cute layouts. So, I decided to revive my blog to 2.) learn how to make those fancy layouts. I decided to update my blog(May 2006), and then posted a Did you know? segment. From then on, I started getting hooked to blogging and each day my "addiction" to blogging grows. First few months of blogging 3.) was to chronicle what happened during the day and an 4.) outlet of my emotions . Check out the example of my chronicles complete with date and time.
But, as days progress and as I read different blogs... my reasons for blogging changes. Just like life, you meet different people and then meeting someone who inspired you.... you suddenly wanna be like that person but of course with a personal twist and ingredients that reflects YOU... and makes a UNIQUE you.
5.) I wanted to share a part of me, my experiences, and what I learned in life and of course to learn something from you bloggers, through your posts as well.
I have observed your posts and through it, I have come to understand you as YOU.
As my blogging experience progress, like Ate Dessie I have come to be much more sensitive to other people who reads my blog as well. Careful, not to offend and at the same time take it all out without REPRESSING my opinion. If I have offended some of your beliefs in some of my posts..... pardon me because I never meant it to be that way. I understand we all have different views, and these are my views... I'm just sharing them... and of course some of my views might change as I seek wisdom through knowledge and experiencing it.
Somehow, some of my posts may seem informative.. I don't want to be a person who gives the impression of knowing-it-all, because I don't. There are things, I wanna know... I wanna remember too.... and that's one of my quest in life.
Don't believe anything I write in this blog unless it RESONATES WITH YOUR SOUL.
6. )I am not here to impose anything to you.... but I am here to share... and relate... because for me that's part of life.
I chanced upon K.Blogie's post about Jayvee of A bugged life's project.
The project of defining one's own conviction.
I think it is quite important to know what our blog convictions are just like knowing our purpose in life. To know one's purpose is to know one's direction, and of course it gives greater meaning to your blog. It is not JUST ANOTHER BLOG but one with A PURPOSE.
My Blog Conviction: I want to share my experiences to fellow bloggers who might get a thing or two about loving life and living in abundance.
