of internet and blogs

Mumsie ni selalu ketinggalan zaman...i only became interested with internet and e mailing about 5 years ago...when i was transferred to this current place of work, where emails are the main form of communication. From then on i was hooked! Tapi itupun limited to emailing and googling...





Until i discovered blogs....wow! that opened a whole new window for me!! Seronoknya baca the writings of others...i can't really recall how i found out about these blogs but find them I did. I started reading blogs of people I don't know...then link here link there, i found family and friends! I found Teeny..Ika...Haq...Shila...Ina's and Yati's fotopages..i felt connected with them...knowing what they are up to in their day to day lives...then link some more, i found their friends. And of late I've made some new friends through their comment boxes. I don't comment much but i would whenever i rasa "terpanggil" to do so, especially when the writer seems particularly friendly, even in their writings. People like Zetty ..Mrs Goodthings@home...



But not all blogs are enjoyable to read. Some concentrates too much on our oh-so-happening political on-goings...one blogger wrote only about the good stuff in her life. She's too ceria to the point of annoyance!! I cannot tahan so i've deleted her from my reading list! Life can't be that good alllllll the time, okeyyyyy...



Of late i've discovered story tellers...like Mr Bangkai, Puteri Kamaliah and Kak Teh Choc-a-Bloc. They write with such eloquence sampai i macam shy pulak. Shy sorang-sorang jer laaa...I feel my own writings are soooo boring and tak creative langsung! Tapi i don't know how else to write...so i suppose i should just be me..this is my own blog kan?!





I just want to mention the blog of Superwoman's friend who calls herself MrsNordin. I really admire her writings coz she bares all...she writes to her heart's content. Tak kira sapa baca and tak kira if orang yang baca will get upset by what she writes...Mind you, she doesn't write bad things about people...she just writes exactly what she thinks of people and things happening around her!





Me...i started this blog last year...konon nak tulis pasal kitorang gi jalan-jalan kat europe dulu tapi dah banyak melencong ni! but still i dare not write too much! i dare not take the risk of "upsetting" people! So i write about "safe" things...can arr? can lah ooh! My blog waaattttt... maybe one day..i'll write about how i really feel about things and about people around me (would love to bitch about bosses!!).

Now Mumsie dah jumpa facebook pulak! Don't you just luurrveee all these internet thingies!!

I like the label "story-teller" that you applied to me. I find it very flattering, ma'am.

Thanks

I echo bangkai - am flattered. Let's just say that we are penglipur lara. Nak cerita kat anak-anak, dia orang dah jemu nak dengar - jadi cerita di blog. Thanks for your kind words.

Hi Mumsie! I stumbled upon your blog thru Superwoman's. Yes, it is nice to read about others in their blog. The happy and the sad, the agonies and the glads but there are others who wish to only share the pretties rather than the uglies. Some would not be comfortable to just bare all or maybe the "happy person to the point of annoyance" that you are quite disturbed by is someone who really truly is happy and chose to see the life given to her in all positive mode. It's really an individual choice, like you said, it is your own blog. Life is how you see it I guess, no matter how hard Allah tests you.

And why not be happy all the time on the surface and keep the sad to yourself. I wouldn't want to trouble my readers with my woes, only close family has that advantage, if you call it an advantage la kan.

Keep on writing alright.

Cheers.
