It Wasn’t A Sequel To Begin With
November 29, 2012 – 18:32 | No Comment

My 3rd novel wasn’t meant to be a sequel to the 2nd novel in the first place. Then something happened. Characters began to beg to be included in the story. Thus, a sequel was born.

I love blog-hopping. It has become a hobby to me to hop into people’s blogs, even people that I don’t know, to read and explore what this world has to say about so many things in life. I blog-hop daily, reading at least 20 blogs day, some really interesting and some totally annoying. And what I mean by annoying is this: they either repeat the same post every day, cut and paste, or they have nothing else better to say besides one sentence (I have nothing to post today). The most annoying one that I’ve come across is one with 150 window scripts (the pop up that welcomes you when you enter a site). Man! it was annoying to have to click 150 times on the OK button before I can enter the blog. It’s irritating!

Nevertheless, there are many bloggers out there whom are potential writers. They write really well and if given a chance to expand that gift, they will probably be the bestsellers in the world. But are these potential writers interested in writing as much as they do in blogging? There is a vast different between writing and blogging. Most bloggers write as if they are talking to their viewers (I , personally, like this approach), while some actually write like they are writing a report for an assignment. Too serious, which made me think that if I compile all their posts, I can turn it into a textbook of some kind.

Anyway, there are many different kinds of blog out there. Some designed for leisure, some designed as a communication site, some designed for personal usage (I’ve come across people’s personal blog-diary a million times), and yet, some designed as an information guide (these are the most boring ones, all they have is news on how to keep to your diet or how to get cheaper rate for products). I personally like blogs with lots of pictures (photos and no words, basically, like a photo album) and blogs with creative writings (stories, poems, and articles). The layouts are just awesome! With music and video, chatterbox and hit counters, these blogs are actually personalised by the owners, each with different features and layout. Beautiful!

If you ever wanna try blog-hopping like I do, be prepared to be amazed by the earthlings. They sure have a lot to share and say about life on earth. Of course, you have to know how to differentiate the wrong from right. Some blogs are just craps and come with negative elements. If you can’t terminate yourself from reading those, you’re a goner by the end of the day. But if you do, you’ll benefit from the many other wonderful blogs out there. Oops! Time for me to blog-hop again. Hop! Hop!
