Some one just asked me the other day if I wanted to be a Superstar? “If you don’t want to be famous, why do you write blogs?”
I just wonder if all the people who write blogs want to be superstars. It is a very good question! It makes me review and check through the motives that I have in putting up a blog. I again ask myself the question once through. Indeed, why on earth did I start writing my blog?
Frankly, It is to keep myself usefully occupied. Then I want to practise what little IT knowledge that I have learnt from schoolchildren.
At first, I had no IT knowledge at all. I was even afraid of the computer: that I might spoil or damage it. Then, someone gave me a laptop and told me to use it. From then, I patiently learn how to surf the internet, going through the websites of other people. It was my Godson, Alvin, who challenged me to go into internet so that I could email and chat with him.
Even till today, I’m still ignorant of many things. My first encounter was with Windows Live! That was where I started. I created a lot of problems and found that I could not return to my blog site because of the incorrect password. But I persevered!
When Windows Live wanted to close down their services, I was being helped to transfer to wordpress. com. I am thankful to the team members of wordprss.com. It’s so much easier and user-friendly.
But, still, I do not understand any terms use my them. I even find difficulty when they add new features and icons onto the dashboard. The good joke is I don’t even know how to recall the draft that I have saved.
Don’t let me bore you with all the difficulties I face because I am IT illiterate! Well, back to the question.
I write my blog not to impress or to boast. I just want to share my thoughts and experiences with those who visit my website. I have said it many times to those who email me : I like to share my poems.
Well, well, I am not a superstar! Neither do I want to be one! (I don’t even dream of being one!) I just simply write what I feel. Perhaps, I may have stepped on someone’s toes, but that is not my intention! I apologise if I have done it.
I welcome any one to comment or email me. Those who sent me through email, I will definitely reply. Just forgive me if my reply is sometimes late because of internet problems. Otherwise, it will be within a day or two!
