6th May 2015 Challenge

Dear Reader,

Thank you for visiting my blog. I'm accepting this challenge because I miss blogging.

Ever since I joined Facebook, I've lost the interest to write. I suppose now that many people know who the real "MrsNordin" is, I have to be careful about what I write.

And that's boring.

Not that I write anything nasty or offensive, I was just expressing my feelings. But somehow some people may not like it.

Do I care? No, I don't. But after a while, it was just getting on my nerves.

So I have to write "safe" stories.

And again, that's boring.

Nevertheless, back in the days when I was actively blogging, I kind of like the feeling when someone whom I've never met before suddenly approached me and asked, "Are you MrsNordin?"

Or, suddenly someone told me out of the blue, "Oh, I think I saw MrNordin the other day!"

That was a great feeling. Thank you! That means, there are people who actually enjoyed my stories.

I don't think I am able to write about my husband like before, now that he is also on Facebook. If I am annoyed with him, I can't possibly vent my anger here anymore. Nanti kecil hati, or he would scream, "Why can't you just tell me? Why do you have to tell the whole world?!"

He has a point.

And my kids? They are all grown up. I can't bear to write anything which may hurt their feelings. Good stories, yes... But bad stories? I'd better keep them to myself. Sometimes, it's better that way.

The only person who I can write about (and he won't be so mad at me even if I do) is my little rascal, Nizzar. But he's not so little anymore. He just turn 9 today. He knows how to search and read my blog. Sometimes when we are in bed, I'd read him the old stories about him in my blog. Stories when he was 2 or 3 years old, when he was naughty.. and we'd laugh together.

So, what's the purpose of this blog?

It has defeated its old purpose. I have to come up with something new to write about.. new ideas..

But, up til now, I still can't figure it out. I'm still searching for an answer. Until I find one, I guess there is no compelling reason to write.

Perhaps someone can give me an idea. That would be much appreciated.

Thank you.
