I’ve been blogging since June 2007 right after one of my best friends back home taught me how to create one. At first, alike most newbies, I didn’t even know what to write and what to tell. However, since I was studying communication science and has a lot of writing assignments, I basically just uploaded all those stuff on my blog, lol. To be honest, I was quite happy because many people came to my blog even just for the sake of copying my writings (about communication science). I’m happy to share and I don’t give a shit whether they’re gonna put my name on the reference list or not.
And today is the national day of blogger in Indonesia. And it’s already 7 years in total of my existence in Indonesia blogsphere. It’s not easy to maintain consistency to keep writing on regular basis. In early years, I used to update my blog at least once a week. Back then there was no twitter, no hype of facebook and bla bla bla. Visiting blogs used to kinda my favorite activity every night. Commenting and knowing the authors were such lovely enjoyment for me.
Blogging also enables me to have a wide range of networks. Knowing personally many kind of people really helps me in order to build my professional career after study. It’s such a wonderful experience, really! Again it’s not easy to blog as I used to do. Working and studying at the same time really keep my mind away from blogging.
Anyway, Happy National Blogging for Indonesian Bloggers!
