Four months ago (or was that five, I’m not too sure), I started this blog and I didn’t even know the basics of blogging. So I stumbled along, and now here I am in the New Year, still woefully deficient in the art of blogging.
This takes me back to why I started blogging in the first place. You see, like in most things, this started with a girl who broke my heart. I guess this was my fault in most ways, I set myself up to be heartbroken in the first place. I won’t delve into the details because I’m sorta embarrassed this happened in the first place. That will be a story for another day, if it ever gets told. Then you guys all know the bipolar thing that happened to me a while back.
Anyway, I just wanted to tell you guys that I’ve found another reason to keep this blog running. You see, because of this blog, I’ve rediscovered that I can actually write. For at least ten or more years, I haven’t written anything cohesive or even remotely interesting. I’ve buried my head into unimportant things like careers and computer games.
Then this blog happened and I’ve been writing rather furiously and I’ve found the old me that used to write for fun. I’m writing again.
You may also have noticed that this blog has mostly veered away from my old hugot posts, although I still write about that from time to tune. I now write mostly because of the joy of writing, and for the most part it serves the purpose for which I started this blog. Writing is incredibly cathartic.
Anyway, I wanted to thank you all for the help and support this past months. This has been an incredible journey.
So before any of you guys get teary eyed, I have an announcement to make. No, this blog won’t end. I just wanted you to know that last December I walked away from my Sales Support Managerial position at my country’s top HMO to pursue being a full time writer. If you know what’s happening in the Philippines on May 2016 then you know what I will be writing about. I’m actually going to be paid doing something I love (I won’t be paid much though, as compared to my old job). Except. Except. Except it won’t be written in this blog.
This blog will be my child. This is where I write for the pure joy of writing, and not for money or anything else (although it wouldn’t hurt if I get paid for the things I write here, just as long as what I write is still me.) This is me writing for fun.
So if you’re still here with me on this journey, I hold out my hand to you. This will be freaking exciting. Thanks for going with me this far, but we’re not done yet.
