Let me share with you a few things that has been on my mind these last few weeks. Well it has been stewing in my head for more than these last few weeks but especially so in these last few weeks. This is not about me it is really about you all and yet at the same time it is about me.
What has been on my mind for a long long time is how do we make blogging - not just steadyaku47 but blogging....how do we make bloggers more effective and relevant in the process of sharing information that you all should know to start the process of change that the majority of Malaysians want?
After almost a decade of blogging what I know is simply this : there is just so much we bloggers can do. If you do not read what we write...we die lah. What blogger writes just for himself? He writes because he wants others to read what he writes. He or she wants as many people as possible to read what they write - for what ever reason lah!
Let me take one specific example - how I write about anything... or as the Datin would say...let me story you lah!
No names....just initials.

Somehow I only became aware of the message two weeks later and replied :

and so our "conversation started :
Within hours of getting the photo I wrote about it and posted the article onto my blog.
