It's been TWO years...
This blog turns TWO today!
It was exactly two years ago at such wee hours in the morning that I typed my first post. I named it Jess' two Js as I wanted to dedicate the blog to my two doggies - Jojo and Jelly. But alas, there were just that many dog tales to be told.. So after a while, it has become a personal journal of sort..
When I started, I really didn't know how long this new `hobby' would last. But the more I blogged, the more hooked I became.. Well, my profession has to do with writing so sometimes i wondered why i still have the mood to write a blog after work.. well, maybe they don't call it occupational hazard for nothing . :p
Anyway, I must admit I'm quite `proud' of this humble blog of mine.. Some of the ranting and rambling aside, I've chronicled many interesting and memorable events, complete with photos. In a way, I feel I'm able to freeze those beatiful memories into something quite tangible.. and as time passes, I'm able to click my mouse with feelings of nostalgia.. like hey, at so and so day, I actually went there and did that!
But I must also be honest to admit that at certain time, I just didn't feel like blogging, and had doubts whether I should go on.. Such phases are not uncommon I guess. Although my blog doesn't get many hits, it was a pleasent surprise to find out I have some faithful readers, including people who I don't know. I mean after all, I am not a celebrity nor do I blog on intelligent, entertaining or controversial topics..
You know, I even toyed with the idea of taking a hiatus as this blog turns 2.. which is now! But no, I think I couldn't do it. It has become so much a part of my life, and also a tool to share and communicate with friends and readers.. and yes, here I must say my heartfelt thanks to my readers.. some of whom are the encouraging force behind me writing.
Oops, this `speech' has gone on too long.. Ok, so finally, here is me unabashly wishing my `baby' a `HAPPY 2nd BIRTHDAY!' and many more to come!?
