So why do a person like me, who is a self-confessed grammar booboo and someone who likes to keep things private enjoys blogging?

There are 3 major reasons:

1) Keepsake, memories — Being the forgetful person that I am, blogging is like an open diary of the everyday things that happen in my life. I enjoy reading through it. I can imagine when I’m old and grumpy, I can read the simplest things in life that makes me who I am.

Plus, having a baby is one journey that is really exciting — I don’t want to forget the milestones of Sachi.

2) Online friends – from total strangers to friends, that’s magic!

This blog, as personal as it is, is open to just about anyone. And luckily, people I meet through posting comments seem genuine and real. Shared experiences are a sure way to bond — even just online 🙂

3) Venue to rant and rave — Since blogging is much like an open diary — there’s something about it that makes writing each entries fulfilling — it’a venue to vent out your feelings. Its like the universe is your friend. Sometimes you just have to say things out loud just to free yourself from certain emotions.

I guess that’s just about it, the 3 main reasons why I like blogging. I’m keeping this short so I can move on with my piled up entries.

On to tagging czarina, ate, april… I’d like to tag chuvaness, topazhorizon, daphne osmena, pia magalona, but then again these are celebrity figures. They do’nt have an idea I exist, but I do check their posts once in awhile (except for chuvaness which is a daily read 🙂 )
