Looks like I have been going through a spell of drought where blogging is concerned. By blogging, I meant writing. September was the worst month as I only churned out one post. On the other hand, I have been actively updating my second photoblog that I christened Quick Takes. It features images taken and uploaded with the Samsung Galaxy S II.
Although the camera phone allows very limited control as compared to a conventional digital camera, I enjoy capturing images and post them up on the go. The lack of updates was also due to the fact that I have been spending the past couple of weeks setting up the photoblog and updating the other blogs as well. There was an issue of the image captions not being parsed in the RSS feed that took almost a week of wading through Google and WordPress forums to resolve.
The Digital Awakening’s homepage has been redesigned to include links to the latest posts in my other blogs and Wuan’s photoblog. Some of these have not been updated for a couple of years. I noticed the same trend among bloggers active in Facebook and Twitter who have not been updating their blogs as frequently as they used to. These two microblogging medias have dampened our enthusiasm somewhat for writing longer posts. I guess I need to manage my time better between Facebook, Twitter and my blogs to break this affliction.
The moment I opened my eyes, there sleeping beside me was this bald, dark skinned and good looking man who, in my mind, was supposed to be one of my Facebook buddies. Beside him were two other good looking female Facebook buddies, all lying side by side on the same mattress with me. I do not know what we were doing there. We were all fully clothed, mind you. And then I woke up. Noon naps will never be the same again.
