Huh? Blog?

Variety in life is what makes it most exciting and enticing. The same is reflected in my sidebar where updates of other bloggers' entries flash on my page. In the past 48 hours, I have shed tears, smiled from ear to ear and gasped reading some of the entries. Some are written by individuals who have now earned a place in my heart that I include them in my prayers every time I lift up my hands. Some still remain quite anonymous yet I feel as if I've known them for many years.

While one blog shares news of a new life, another seeks prayers for a suffering one. Doesn't He always work in wonders? There are the talented few who can put together poignant entries so thought-provoking that we always return for more.

Hence, I am not bothered by my friend's accusation (surely, she wasn't referring to me) which was a pathetic generalisation that those who blog, facebook, twitter, etc. are arrogant anti-socialites. In my opinion, her hypothesis lacked logical justification that I merely laughed aloud when I heard it.

Blogging is not the pulse of my life yet from it I gain a little from experiences of others. For me, blogging is often a form of therapy - expressing myself by putting words and thoughts together. It is not all entirely true neither are they all fictional. I write and publish whatever I want to, occasionally being a tad conscious of who might be reading this mumbo-jumbo (yes, Ms B, thus we resort to writing analogies...).

Of late, I no longer have so much time to linger in the blogosphere. At times I hop without leaving a print. Normally, I check my favourites once I get the newsflash on my page. For those who have never blogged, give it a shot - though please don't abandon it like two of my friends who employ the concept hangat-hangat tahi ayam. For those who insist they are not good with words and are happy being silent readers, keep on reading. After all, reading is a worthy act, isn't it? ;)

You said it well sis... ine is a therapy too and is a way to let some steam off my head and relieve my chest from the heavy burden too...

More often than not, i write to remind myself about so many things... and I rea others esp writings like yours for some inspiration... you battle a different fight that makes me adore and salute you... subhanaAllah, this learning from each other is so life enriching.

God bless you sis. You are always in my list too.

love.

i blog for whatever happened in my life. not for glamour not for to get attention, but to release whatever burden i've in my head/heart.

*cough cough* Suddenly i saw my name in between the lines. NOt helping as I'm down with some form of a bug.

Indeed I am using more analogies than before. I think we learn from one another tru our life experience. We can relate to some post, and probably disagree to others.

anyway, keep on writing so I can keep on reading. *grins*
