KBW : A year on

November 6, 2006 at 10:56 pm 10 comments

It’s roughly been a year since I began blogging within the KBW.

I write to thank Banks, Mama Mia and Farmgal for the various ways in which they made my blogging within KBW a pleasure; I’ve learnt much (technical and non-technical) from each one of them.

My early times within KBW were troubled by one of my readers who sent me a piece from M‘s as his own.

Not knowing M at the time or even his works, I had proceeded to publish it on my site (of course with credit to the reader in question).

With all the drama from some M readers that followed, I think I must still thank M for keeping his head throughout and accepting my apologies without much ado.

In KBW I also met one of my media professors (yes, she is in here…blogging) and at least 9 ex-campus mates: We don’t comment much on each other’s blogs, but we talk kando kando lots 🙂

I’ve made some great friends in and out of KBW along the way (both Christian and non-Christian)….I correspond with some lots; i have come to learn lots more about myself and my world in the process.

My approach to blogging has had to change lots in terms of content, style and even frequency, – much because of reasons beyond my control (for now at least).

My online activities are mostly restricted to this blog, though I also dabble in other fora where I believe I can influence debates in some ways (Mashada and such don’t rank on my list); I especially relish those in which people (Christians like myself) busy themselves either excusing or ignoring ills in society in the name of God.

Too sketchy, perhaps, but that’s my summation of the times I’ve had in and outside the KBW thus far.
