Yes, another blog. But why? I couldn’t think of a single, all-encompassing reason, so I am making a list:
1. I am bored. I had my blog in Friendster while Friendster is still “in” and then I discovered Multiply, so I moved there and have been writing there until now. But I have gotten bored. I need a change of space, a new environment. So here I am.
2. I have been influenced. Most of my book-loving friends, particularly my Goodreads friends, have book blogs and I’m tempted to start one myself. I hope I will be able to give justice to the books I’ll be blogging about and that I will not make a fool of myself, attempting to write when I really couldn’t.
3. I’m on a whim. I admit that starting another blog could well be one of my crazy whims. Boyfriend calls it one of my “kaartehan.” It’s a good thing blogging is free of charge. My whims won’t cost me anything except my time.
4. I really love to write. I am no literary expert nor am I a sensible writer, like Jessica Zafra. But I just love to write. It’s my one way of taking a break from the monotony of work. WordPress offers me the adequate spaces I need for the randomness of my writings as well.
So far I’m loving it here. It feels like moving in to a new place, decorating and furnishing it with the just the right look and the right items to suit my needs and my fancies. I have the feeling this will be my home for a long time. 🙂
