3 Years Already?
It's December now so that means it's been 3 years (don't get confused with the picture above) since I got involve in blogging world. It was initiated by reading so many blogs by wide range of writers and I asked myself why shouldn't I have one for my own where I can express myself and my thoughts? And here you go, a blog of mine named "apa yang aku fikirkan".
I still preserve the blog name in bahasa although I've been writing in English since August 2006. Yes, this blog was written in bahasa initially for a few months then I changed my mind to write it in English instead. The idea was that this writing in English as a therapy and training for myself to enhance my English. If you're good follower of this blog you might be observing that my English standard isn't that high. I use simple English and not much vocabulary and adjectives are being utilized throughout my words. And that explains a lot about my English, I mean the written one. My spoken English is of lower level since I've got problem with my tongue and I'm working on fixing it stage by stage. Damn you ulcers! Argh!
Ok, enough about language.
Throughout the years spent for blogging I've encountered so many experiences and the topmost one is definitely to know other blogging friends. Now I know this world is actually small. Once I knew this person, he's actually connected by a person I've known earlier like the cases of Ihab and Ismat, Lutfi and Amirul, and Nad, Baez and Syifa and my schoolmates. I also have met most of them personally and they are great people in person! Now I'm looking forward to seeing eyes-to-eyes with the rest of them whom I've not meet yet.
Talking about the readers of this blog, I know they are a lot of silent readers and don't be shocked that they actually come from Indonesia. Thanks to Statcounter for giving me the statistics about where my readers are actually coming from. And most shockingly is that my entry about ghost is the one attracts the most readers. More of that, usually people searching for words like pontianak, hantu, pocong and so will end up reading this blog. To me it's not that shocking anymore since every time I check the statistics that's the one showing the highest hit. Hm... Should I continue writing about ghost? Naaaah...
More about readers, they are some who respond directly to me positively or negatively. One of them is you-know-who who will check the pictures (since she doesn’t really read the entries) and she’s the reason why a picture in this entry and this one to be deleted. With all due respect, I have no problem with her request so I just deleted them. End of story. No fight. Hehe...
Other readers come from my friends who include the Odah members, classmates, kulliyyah-mates, friendster friends and most recently I've figured out lecturers also. Welcome lecturers! I'm glad you read this blog. And I've been informed that there are staffs of Kulliyyah of Economics of IIUM who read this blog frequently. Ha? Well... no wonder since this is an open internet blogging and everyone have access to it anytime anywhere.
That's all for now. Just one thing, I hope I'll be writing more of thoughtful entries other than reporting what's going on in my daily life. If this one little brother can do it, why can't I? Haha...
