Well, it isn’t my birthday. In fact, it isn’t anybody’s birthday. It’s just that this is my 100th post in this blog of mine which has survived up to over three months (on the 7th to be exact, last Saturday that is).
My friend, Cibol, asked somebody to set up this thing for me and having got that done, he sent me an sms to let me know and ask me to log in and post something! Good grief! I didn’t know what the hell to do. But after struggling through, I managed to post my first post – “Like a virgin” on the 7th of March. I was still very blur at the time…and the second post only appeared a week later – the 14th of March. The third one was six days afterwards on the 20th…and by then, I think I was getting used to it already.
Initially, I did not have any photographs and people started complaining. Gosh! My head was spinning just to get the posts published…and now they wanted pictures!!! So I had to learn the ropes…and my first photograph appeared. More complaints! So small! Not clear! Get a new/good camera!!! Gee!!! I never expected it to be so difficult!!! Come to think of it, even though I was not exactly computer-illiterate, I was not really into it…..
Well, I would not want to bore everybody to death with a long account of the “history” but for the record, to date, I have had, 21,072 visits and 2,010 comments. I do not know exactly where I stand, probably not as good as some but better than others. For one thing, I have been branded a “commentwhore” because I have always been concerned about the comments that I get every day. The comments will give me some feedback as to how I am doing. It is like this, you see – if a teacher is teaching to a class of students, how does he know that they are listening if they all keep quiet?
On the other hand, if they air their opinions or points of view, agree or disagree, elaborate and add details of their own, that will show their active involvement in the lesson. Likewise, I feel that the comments show interest in what I have posted and if you just drop by and read and move on, I would not have any idea what is going on in your head. Do you like it? Do you agree…or do you think I am a stupid, boring old man?

If I were the teacher of such students, I would just sit down and refuse to go any further! Why waste my time when no one is listening?…Likewise, why waste my time when no one is interested? I might as well just sit around and talk to myself. After all, old people do that a lot, don’t they? LOL!!! So perhaps, you would like to post a comment to let me know how you feel – what you like, what you don’t like and so on…..
