Why Do I Blog Meme?

So I logon to WordPress this morning and wanted to do a Meme blog challenge, championed by Strawberry Singh, because I started the challenge late and wanted to catch up…..and as berry throws out really fun topics on weekly basis, like the one she posted today about “My SL Guilty Confessions Meme” there are many old topics that I wouldn’t want to miss too, so today I am going to do….

“Why Do I Blog Meme?”

Since there are 14 questions, I should get going….please read on!

Meme instructions: Copy and paste the following questions and answers to your post, delete my answers and input your own. Try not to swear at Berry in your head for having so many questions this week and don’t forget to leave a comment in this meme’s post so others can come by and read your answers as well.

1. How long have you been blogging?

I started blogging since early of year 2008, on blogspot.

2. Why did you start blogging?

My RL friend, JoV, encouraged me to do so and that’s how I know about blogspot.  My first blog was a Second Life fashion blog inspired by a popular SL blogger back then, Milla Michinaga, and also a friend of mine, Ruriko Bracken.  I did it mainly for fun because I liked to shop and mix and match my clothings so I thought I would just take some photos and share them with whomever were interested.  In the same year, I started another blog with Masaru, about fashion and our daily lives. Unfortunately, things slowed down drastically in year 2009 because of RL , so much that I almost left SL so I took both the blogs down.  September 2011, after returning to SL and picking up modeling again, I decided to start this blog.

3. How many times a week do you post an entry?

An average of 3 to 4 posts a week.  I try to blog something on the weekends because that I noticed I get more readership and traffic to my blog and flickr on thesedays.

4. How many different blogs do you read on a regular basis?

I read many SL fashion blogs and in RL mostly about fashion, cooking, travel, books and children stuffs.  I have to say fashion is the most regular one and the rest are just when I really have the time.   This is because whenever I am sitting in front of my PC, SL, skype, flickr, photoshop and wordpress are the most active windows for me. 😛

5. Do you comment on other people’s blogs?

I do, but not on regular basis and I really wish I have more time to do so because some posts need time to digest and I don’t want to make non-meaningful comments. 🙂 I will, however, click “Like” if a post has beautiful pictures and interesting topic, even if I do not have time to read them in details.

6. Do you keep track of how many visitors you have?

I don’t keep track on regular basis.  Having said that, I check my stats once a week because I am always curious where my readers are from and which posts have the most readers. 🙂  It is always very encouraging to see I have new followers.  I truly appreciate the supports and comments I am getting todate. ❤

7. Did you ever regret a post that you wrote?

No regret, otherwise the post would have been taken down. 🙂 I did have doubts on a couple of posts as I wrote them and I pondered for hours before I finally clicked that “Publish” button.  Some days I am more vocal on my thoughts especially when I feel strongly about certain topics that are also pertaining to myself.  One of the posts would be my thoughts about the finale of a beauty contest I participated last year and another one that I posted recently regarding some incidents I experienced in RL…but no regrets definitely. 🙂

8. Do you think your readers have a true sense of who you are based on your blog?

I believe so.  I tried to be versatile in my stylings and pictures but the same time I try to write something in every post whenever time permits. I find it more personal that way, so readers have been reading my thoughts. 🙂

9. Do you blog under your real name?

I never blog with my real name.  Even with my RL blog, I don’t use my real name.
10. Are there topics that you would never blog about?

There are topics that I am definitely not good at, such as politics, religion, exotic gadgets and topics about sexual orientations.   I am also not a big fan of combat / war.

11. What is the theme/topic of your blog?

My blog focused on fashion and ocassionally I talked about my lives and thoughts, so I called it a fashion journal.

12. Do you have more than one blog?

I have a rl blog that sadly I have not posted for quite awhile now.  I started that blog because I needed an outlet and vent about my unhappiness and frustration when I first moved to Canada.  As things are slowly looking up, I blogged about some funny stuffs my daughter did or said and before I stop blogging there, I changed the theme and even the name of the blog to something more bright and cheerful.  Unfortunately, it is hard to keep up with two blogs with a demanding rl so I haven’t been there for sometime now.

13. What have you found to be the benefits of blogging?

My blog is like my personal space in expressing myself,  in this case about my fashion style, creativity and thoughts.  I observe the responses relating to my posts as feedback and improvement and just like Strawberry, I am connected to more SL bloggers this way, people that share common interests in SL. 🙂
14. So, why do you continue to blog?

It is always fun to see what style I can come up with everyday with the items I received from the designers and items I bought.  It is motivating to see there are great and talented designers that entrusted me with their creations and readers that have come back to my blog again and again for ideas and reading pleasure.  These are the reasons that have kept me going in blogging.  Another reason is I get to practice my photography skills.

So here are my 14 good Meme answers for why do I blog. 🙂

Accompanying this post, I am wearing new releases from .SHI, Molichino, COCO and more.

Hopeful Spring

Sometimes things happened for a reason –  How often we experienced the meaning of this phrase?  Not often, at least for me, but having said that, I believe I just had an experience of it.

Luck hasn’t been on my side for the last two weeks.  Last Monday, my husband met with a car accident on his way to work.  He is alright but his car isn’t.  I had to hold my tears in front of my daughter after seeing the damaged car because it is just too severe.  I imagined it must be a horrible experience for my husband during the crash.  I prayed all the way home and thanked god that my husband was not injured.   The accident has suddenly put a great strain on our finances. Both my husband and I were emotionally frustrated because he needed the car badly for his new job.  The accident happened on the same week when I was busy between preparing for AVENUE S/S fashion week and kid`s spring camp.  Being busy was a good thing because I needed something to take my mind off the car problem.

When I was finally more settled with the incident, my health took a dip.  I felt pain on one of my breasts on Friday night.  By Saturday morning, I could feel a lump and it was unusually painful.  I dare not think what was it and at one point was contemplating if I should tell anyone.  Maybe the lump and pain would go away after some good rest? but who am I to fool?  It was unusually painful that I could not ignore.  Every step I took the pain was there to remind me of it.  So I finally acknowledged I needed medical consultation.  However, it was Easter weekends and my family doctor wasn’t working.  I tried another clinic and it was not opened too so I came home to sleep, and sleep.  Emotionally I was quite torn.  On one hand, I was scared and frustrated.   I asked myself if I have been cursed with bad luck lately but on the other hand, I told myself I needed to stay calm and positive because bad mood and bad vibes attract bad things.  The rest of my memory of the weekend was very vague.  I don’t quite remember how I have survived it.

The waiting at the clinic on Monday morning was agonizing.  The urgent tone from the doctor after she had examined me didn’t help.  She told me to make myself available for mammogram and ultra sound appointments within the same week and “AS SOON AS POSSIBLE”!  So I did.  I have to.  My appointments were scheduled on Wednesday morning.  It was another nerves wrecking wait.  I didn’t know what to think, I couldn’t eat, couldn’t focus on anything so I slept most time and in between I think I edited some pictures for blogging too because I needed some distraction.  I also stepped back from my Producer duties at the Fashion Week because knowing myself I won’t be able to do a good job with such state of mind.

After six days of worries, my doctor gave me a clean bill this morning.  Turn out the lump and pain was due to gland tissues. It was a huge sigh of relief when she told me everything is alright.

OK, so I haven’t been truthful.  I said I couldn’t think but actually I did a lot of thinking for the past six days.  I asked myself what have caused the possible of breast cancer despite there is no such history in my family.  I came to realise I have been living under stress and bad mood since I moved to a foreign land.  A new environment, some bad experience and with no support systems here took the best of me.  I realize I need to make adjustment.  I need to be more positive and put more focus on things that are deserving and let go of those that are underserving.  I know I need to keep my faith and have a better control of my own mood.  I know I need to change, soon, before everything is too late.

So today I have a clean bill of health but the experience I encountered for the past two weeks have changed my perspective of life.

Sometimes things do happened for a reason. I was put through life and death, wealth and health situations within a short span of two weeks, to understand what is most important to me. Today, I have choosen to share my experience here not because I wanted sympathy or empathy.  All I wanted to share is the message of focusing on what is most important to you in life and let the trivial ones go.  Don’t wait until it is too late.  In my case, I am glad it is not late for me.  God has continued to grant me the power of choice and I know I need to choose wisely this time.

Here is wishing everyone a beautiful, hopeful and forward looking spring.  Some nice clothings will definitely help too like the two I wore above. 🙂

One more day to the weekend….remember to come watch me walk on the Ricielli show tomorrow (Friday), as well as the closing Haute show on Saturday, along with some really fabulous stylists and models on the grid.  <333

Head start for a busy day…

Getting a head start for a busy day…I slipped into a simple yet trendy dress, threw on some accessories, packed all my documents and gadgets in my new travellers and leather bags, picked the most comfortable and stylish shoes, got myself a latte, and ready to hit the road.

Don’t mind the hair, they were intentionally being let down because I love how they feel as the wind blows. 🙂
