I remember my first blog was when I was 17 – 14 years ago? Wow. Time flies. I remember the blogging scene then was small. We had a close-knitted group of bloggers who exchanged comments and perhaps even chatted on ICQ. I also met up with a few of them to have coffee and just chill. It was a time where everyone spoke freely online about their daily lives and how hurt they are by their significant others. Okay, that that time, we don’t say “SO”, we call them “stead” or “steady”? HA.
Such openness is not seen any more today. People have guarded thoughts. Those who wrote freely would locked up their blogs. Those who write a lot and have a lot of followers may be commercially driven. Gone were the days where blogs is a personal diary to share your thoughts and dreams.
I remember my first Xanga, it was dark; loads of sadness. And then I moved to LJ. I loved the LJ community, in fact, I realized most of the people on my social media were from my LJ’s era. Tried WordPress and hated it. Now I am on Blogger and too lazy to change it. Too lazy to write. Too guarded.
