Remembering the Old Blog

So if a picture's worth a thousand words, then here's a couple of thousand for you all. This was what was left of my old blog, fondly entitled My Perverations. Perverted. Narrations. And a whole plenty of wordplay. It ain't completely dead yet as a number of my earlier posts, which includes Lemuel and The Bibliophile Post, belonged to that blog.

I wasn't as interested with HTML codes back then, so I had to settle with the default black Blogger template. I just wanted to blog, and I never had this need to impress. But then I started blog hopping and I realized how much my old blog sucked. Don't get me wrong, I'm referring to the format. I know I'm brilliant, but nobody's reading me. So I charmed my blog up, switched pantyliners, and voila, a Blahg of Bullshit.

It might be the same behavior which takes place when you know other people are watching. It's the height of caution at it's most conceited. Gone are the days when you can just go on ahead and write away your moments. It doesn't work anymore since, as a blogger, you're unknowingly pimping your moments for comments. You have to make it look presentable, if not good, since you know you are not trying to impress yourself anymore.

  10. You are most definitely spot on - you just bull's eyed me where it hurts. Ouch! You silly little 'twat'. I got the ho-hum default template as well. Honestly, you write so lovely you don't need em' flies to get into my pants.

  14. i suck at blogging way backkkk DECEMBER, nung nag-start akong mag-blog. gaaaaaaaad. i really hate the things i've written at that old blog!!!

    now, i still suck at blogging. though there's an improvement.

    i'm pretty much contented with my links also; though pag may nakita akong sensible na blog - i trade links with them.

    'my perverations'
    sounds good to me. haha! :)
