Today this blog turns 12 years old.
For the past few years I kept preparing myself for the imminent demise of this blog but I guess… it accidentally survived yet another year.
Just right before I gave birth to Sakura, I seriously considered taking a break from blogging so I can give my best to being a real mother. But I guess… I love writing here too damn much to even have a break.
Twelve years ago I was stuck at home with nowhere to go so I befriended my laptop. Twelve years later I am stuck at home with @cheesiepetit X2 and can only befriend my laptop when they are both asleep. And I am pretty happy (or pretty AND happy. Ok actually I’d prefer the latter HAHAHA).
Twelve years later, I feel like I have completed a full cycle. I’m back to where I started. I am writing for myself again. A (rather) silent blog with drama reserved for only my own imagination. A compilation of memories kept for future retrospection. A few anecdotes for the curious eavesdroppers who chance upon.
When I was writing my e-book, it was almost like I was planning the funeral for this blog. a fiercely glorious one.
To excerpt a part of Chapter 7 from my e-book titled “How to Be a Successful Blogger (Cheat One™) “, (which very likely is excerpted from this blog. So it’s a real #excerption lolol. Basically I am just damn good at plagiarizing myself.)
Uhm hello? Anybody there?
Right. All my 11 blog readers are probably simultaneously having internet connection problem and cannot access my blog. Or they are taking a holiday from my blog.
And huh, the last time I updated was one week ago? Hmmm. Strange. Time passes real fast when your life is about blending baby purees and picking up bits of thrown food on the floor.
Or busy finding your son.
Well. Writing a book is much tougher than writing a blog entry. I should just stick to being a blogger. Or go back to writing diaries.”
Excerpt From: Cheesie. “How to Be a Successful Blogger (Cheat One™).” iBooks.
Thank you everyone who purchased the book. Thank you for the nice comments and emails. Thank you for letting me know that writing it was worth my time. It was almost like you guys helped me close a very long chapter.
Today is a special day so just for today only, you can purchase my e-book at 30% OFF, if you use the coupon code “IWANTTOBECHEATED“. (Ha you see. This is how I trick you into ticking the “I agree” box so even if the book turns out to be shit, you totally asked for it.)
Today I am writing the will for this blog.
I want it to be shared by everyone who once loved it. I want it to be of help for anyone who needs it. I want its soul to be freed (and remain free or course).
I want its organs to be donated to assholes who needs a heart. I want it to be here as a proof of how I have lived the past 12 years. And I want you to witness this. Today.
Today we are celebrating the death of this blog in advance. (In case it’s too late to do so. You know like, when you are so old that all your friends are dead and basically you are just sending invitations to your own funeral to ghosts. Unless they are all already there with you then the party is on. Sorry I’m not quite sure how ghosts’ funeral works.)
So let’s begin the party!!
The standard blogniversary questions every year!

2. Which is your favorite blog post(s)?

All the ghosts can answer. ^^
