My say

Blogs are really a person's window to communicating with the world. Just within a few hours of putting in my first entries, I've received quite a few comments. Some, not too pleasant either, I must say :O
To those of you who were annoyed somehow by what I do with my blog, I say: Take it easy. Why not just enjoy the pretty graphics, and move on?

I had intended to postpone writing a proper first entry until the end of my exams. But, I guess it won't wait.

I was apprehensive about having a blog initially. A diary open to the world?? And then, I thought, it could be interesting as well – to share with the world my thoughts and experiences, joy and sorrows, doubts and hopes, and to have the world share them back with me too. And so, cautiously, I took my first step into the world of Blogs. I must say that the welcome I received wasn't exactly heart-warming :P
Perhaps tempers are short in this stressful times of exams.

Blogs, the way I see it, is a place for sharing, and a platform for free speech and freedom of expression. If a blog is a shop, people come and go. Some find something they like, and stop for a while. Some peek in and walk away. Some shops sell food, some sell antiques. Each has something to sell, each has its own worth. Even if you think antiques are a waste of money, that is no reason to throw stones at the shop window.

Our lives are marked by the relationships we build up with the people around us. Many would walk into our lives through the years; some would leave footprints in our hearts. But everyone has something that we can learn from, if not about ourselves.
Take the time to listen to what everyone has to say, to listen beyond what is said, and to listen behind that which is not said. That, is respect.
Beware of the mind that passes judgement too quickly or too harshly. That, is wisdom.
At the end of the day, the choice is yours to make. And the choices we make, are what make us who we are.

All's said, I do accept that everyone is entitled to have their say. So, thanx for popping by my Blog.
Good Luck for the exams!
Smile – Spring is in the air! :)

  1. Hi there, good to have another newbie on blogs. There has been some past debate as to the posting of online quiz results as we've had so many in the past, that link may help you understand why people get pissed off with seeing so many of these on here. I do them all the time (have followed many of the links from yours) but don't post my results as I know that it gets really tedious when you scroll through recent entries and have everybodys results to the same quizes.
    anyway, good to have you on board, I look forward to reading more of your stuff!

  2. Hi Helen! :)

    Thanx for the nice welcome [at last! ;)].
    I do see why some people could get so worked up over those online quizzes now. Thing is, I didn't realise previously that it would appear in the latest entries, or that there are ways to restrict them.
    But, I was just rather disturbed by the way harsh comments were being handed out so carelessly, I thought.

    Anyway, enough said :) I shall look forward to reading your stuff too. Have a nice day, and hold strong to the faith in doing what you want and doing what you think is best for you (regarding your meeting tomorrow).

  4. Helen, do the cd reviews go straight on the recent blog page stuff as well? cause i found it quite fun to review a cd straight after listening to it and put it on here, but would stop if its annoying. are you other 2 who left comments on here in the badminton club? i think i recognise the names, kinda. oh yeh: dont read my blog, it has bad words in it and is a bit weird. Well, now everyone probably will after i said that but dont say i didnt warn u.
