When I wrote the previous post, i wanted to just thrash out how i felt at that time but yes, i was also hoping to `solicit' some responses...
But what i did not expect was getting replies from readers i do not know personally, and from overseas too! that's quite a nice surprice really.. :)
So i just want to say a big `thank you' to all my readers and especially those who have responded in one form or another to affirm me that my blog is worth a read. i guess i should not be discouraged just because traffic is low or comments box is empty.
And now.. i have some `news' for you.
I have decided to slow down in my post for Jess' 2 Js unless its something really worth sharing with you guys..
I think 22 months of regular blogging meant that I've devoted a lot of my spare time on the Net - (esp when posting photos on travel pieces etc.. that really take up a lot of time!) Not that I don't like doing it or think it's a waste of time - God forbid - but I guess when you're called to do something more important, you have to forgo certain things...
I will be working on a book that I have started more than 10 years ago.
I can't let (too much of) the cat out of the hat at the moment but I can tell you it's an autobigraphy/personal testimony - about how I battled a certain illness since I was young and about how God had delivered me and healed me and transformed me into who I am today.
Yes, you can call it a Christian book but i have nothing to preach.. it's merely to share of the goodness of God, the miracle He has done in my life and how He has great plans for me..
I promise it won't be boring.. for I have much stories to tell about my life - the pain, the sorrow, the joy and the victory.. and I will spill it all out with no shame..
Originally I had hoped that i could publish it by my 30th birthday! But many years had passed by and I had abandoned it for so many years - due to distractions of many kinds (work, and now blogging and reading blogs being some of them) I did not even write one word to my book in the last 3 years! And now, it's only less than 1/4 way done.. and needs a lot of rewriting..
So yeah, that's what I'm going to be doing from now on till the day the book is completed. But of course i won't let this blog die... it's still an outlet of sort and a way to keep in touch with friends and readers.
Only thing is, the frequency and length of posts would really have to reduce..
But I believe my readers will understand and are as excited for my `new project' as I am.
Wish me luck and will keep you posted on how it goes.. :)
