My Next Post Will be About Vaginas. Meanwhile, Here's One of My Blogging Secrets --- Notepad¹

**If you're using Windows, then do Start > Programs > Accessories > Notepad. There are times when it doubles as a magnifying glass of sorts. And I'm swearing by the way it illuminates your posts when I'm reading them.

Here's what I always do when reading your posts -- I copy-paste your recent entry into an open Notepad, and then I read it from there. It's because I can read it from there without the distracting necromancy that is HTML. The thought is naked, the composition is bare, it's just me and your words in their final arrangement. Reading it in this white blank space, and in that no-nonsense Arial font (size 11, regular), allows me to digest the fiber of your thoughts presented in that signature way that only you, the writer, can arrange them. I'm getting closer to your style of writing this way, not to plagiarize, but to familiarize, and I can arrive at a more, shall we say, human response.






Unless of course I just don't get the shit that you wrote. In which case I do The Quick Brown Fox Jumped Over the Crazy Poodle several times until I'm satisfied. And then I'll go back to what you blogged about, and then be an awful jerk about it just because.



This is why most of my comments are closer to home. I don't want to look and sound generic.

¹Awful. It's been about a week since my last post. Jesus H. Christ, talk about lazy! Sorry about that, boys and girls.

    You've been on hiatus for quite some time now. We miss your stories!

  2. Ako naman, I appreciate the blog more when I see the overall look, mula sa words hanggang sa layout. Parang kuha ko yung full experience ahaha... understand you for doing this though ikaw lang ata ang kilala kong gumagawa nito. Try Google Reader?

  4. Ako naman, Notepad ang gamit ko sa pag comment. Ganto ang hitsura nya, i pi print screen ko para sayo.

    As in habang nagbabasa ako, tinatype ko ang comment ko sa notepad. Kaya minsan pag may matinding catch sa dulo ang entry, nakakabalahura na ang comment ko kase I type as I read.

    Tapos minsan nagkakamali pa ko ng paste. May time na yung comment ko sa isang blog na naipaste ko sa iba. Nakakahiya, much. Haha.

    Eto yung link sa print screen:

  5. Analakas maka-HD nun! @ Glentot

    Mas feel ko magbasa pag notepad, kasi bare siya eh. Ang dating sa kin pag dun ko binabasa eh parang draft nila ung binabasa ko, manibalang pa kumbaga, and I prefer write ups that way kasi wala pa mashadong pa-impress na nagaganap.

    Okay na ko sa Notepad, works for all my purposes. And I mean all. Ahaha!


    Di naman! @ Hondafanboi!

    Nawala talaga sa isip ko na more than a week na pala kong walang post. Nasasayang yung mga kakaibang ideas ko na panis na to begin with.

    Wow! @ Vajarl

    Kakaloka naman at may visual aid pa! Effort itu! Ako dati ganun eh, nagco comment ako as I go along the post, pero minsan may ibang bloggers na mahusay mag-twist, kaka-inis at nawawalan ng sense yung post ko. Gaya minsan yung kay Glentot, yung ni post niya tungkol dun sa namatay na friend niya sa Facebook. Fiction lang pala. Yun mga ganun.

    Ahaha, buti naman at di pa nangyayari sa kin ung nagkamali ng comment.

    Thanks you three for dripping by! I love you long time! Two dolla long long time!

  6. Ako naman eh hindi na ko nagcocomment sa posts ni Glentot. Iniisnab nya kase ako. Pero sa lahat ng nasa blogroll ko, sya ang pinaka madalas kong dalawin dahil tuwang tuwa ako sa entries nya. Ahihi.

    Keber lang saken kahit wala ng sense ang comment ko, alam naman na nila na ganon ako mag comment, habang nagbabasa. Kase pinapaliwanag ko. Haha.

  7. Ay totoo nga yan @ Vajarl

    Yung nangi-isnab sa comments. At yung nakakatuwa ang entries! Ahaha, maloko eh.

    Naalala ko ung comment dati nung isang blogger, di ko na babanggitin kung sino, pero sabi niya eh di na kailangan mag-comment sa comments mo. I disagree. For me I think it makes it a little more personal, pag may interaction ka with your readers.

    Cheers Vajarl!

  8. Momellllllllllll!!!

    Asan na ang vagina????? :)

    What I find interesting is that not only do people write differently, they also read differently.

    You really are a purist pala no? I tend to re-read entries I found interesting; whether because I loved it or I felt I didn't quite understand it, perhaps.

    I like that you really read the entries; you take time to try to understand people's stories =)

    Waiting for your vagina to fall,

    Kane

  10. Ba't parang excited ka?! @ Kane

    Sa vagina?

    Ano ba talaga?

    Ahaha, I kid. Yes, I do take the time to read the posts as they are. And reading them in Notepad is like reading the entries minutes before they posted the thing, that kind of "freshness," that "rawness" is what I'm basically after.

    And you know what, Kane, reading your posts in Notepad is a real trip. Your narratives become dialogues, letters even, in that blank white space.

    Cheers you!

    Ay oo naman! @ Ms Pokwang

    Bago pala ang lahat eh naloka naman ako nung tinawag mo kong Kipay sa comments mo. Si Vajarl naman ang tawag sa kin eh Freddie. Dun sa comments din niya. Ahaha, bakit di na lang Khie Khie Aguilar para may napagkasunduan. Malaki utang na loob ko dun sa lecheng driver na yun ah, dapat pala dinagdagan ko pa ng sampu ung tip ko.

    Naku, buti nga at may time ka pang magpaka-pekpek sa pagb blog mo Ms Pokwang kahit very much nilalagare mo na ang buong Europa! Marami kang inaaliw teh! Muah!

    Cheers you!
