To those that stop to have a read of what I write I have something I would like to say. Not to Zorro Unmasked, not to Antares, not to Din Marican, not to Lita or Pat…not to those that read what I write and do so because they want to see what I have to say about things they are passionate about too. These people are already more passionate then me in their resolve that things must change in Malaysia if our children are to have a decent future. I would like to try and talk to those that surf the Net in search of something ‘interesting’ to read. They look at the title of an article, decide if the first few lines of any article are interesting enough to hold their attention…if not off they go to another site, another blog. I only know that they have seen what I write from the statistics that records every click on my site. In these ‘special branch days’ that we live in almost everyone prefers the ‘Anonymous’ moniker! I do not know who they are, what they think and most important to me – if what they read from my blog has any impact in what they think and do.
Speaking for myself, I blog because I have something to say about issues –political, persona, social, religious…any issues that grabs me. And I think this is what drives most bloggers to work on their own blogs. We are passionate about what we believe in - because putting those thoughts on paper is ‘work’. I dislike having to check the spellings and grammar of the articles that I write before I post them on my blog - but if I do not do that then it means that I do not respect my readers enough to give them an article that is at least, to the best of my ability, error free – if not in facts at least in grammar and spellings!
Now if we can do that can we ask that those of you that do stop by our site and read what we write – do take the trouble to tell us what you think? No we do not need for you to say that our article was ‘fantastic’ or ‘great’ – nor would we welcome too harsh a put down of what we write – but this we would like. Can we have a dialogue -can we exchange thoughts – can we ‘talk’ about things that interest both of us? If I write about Mahathir – and you think he has done good and does not deserve being vilified by me or anybody else – tell me. If you read my article on PDRM corruption – and you too have a story to tell about the same thing – tell us. Share your experience with us. From these feedbacks and exchanges I get my ‘kick’ to write more.
And more important – we are all making an effort for change. We are telling each other that “YES” I am with you. We are together. We can make a difference. Let the Net be saturated with our exchanges. Negative, positive or neutral…it does not matter. We will give as good as we get. I relish the opportunity to ‘talk’ to anyone who has an opinion about what I write.
So next time when you do stop at steadyaku47 take a minute to leave a comment…even if it is just a “Huh?” ..And do leave your votes on the polls that I have from time to time. Do the same to the other bloggers….then in time the power that be that monitors traffic over these blogs will know that we have a healthy and robust market! Camna?
