This is my Nth attempt for a blog. I’ve kept a blog since I learned about blogs in 2003. I enjoy writing! I enjoy, uhh, expressing myself thru this medium. But I was not able to maintain any of the many blogs I’ve started partly because it lacked structure, and once in a while I lost interest and abandoned one blog and started another, wanting to be more relevant. Hopefully this time around I’ll be able to make it work, create more structure and more interesting content for me and for readers. I promise myself to write about things that I truly enjoy and am passionate about–and not any of those posts that simply seek to be relevant but isn’t really something interesting for me.
So those are the basic stuff about me and here is what I look like at 5 in morning as I write this first entry to my new blog!
