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.

Hi MrsNordin. Got here from Feedly. Yes your blog is still in my RSS reading list.

I decided to revive my www.sabre23t.com blog slightly differently. What about recreating the blog on my preferred social media, almost as it was in 2009 ... http://web.archive.org/web/20110207205228/http://www.sabre23t.com/ ?

So I did just that, my new blog is at my G+ Collections page ... https://plus.google.com/+SMSabriIsmail/collections

Nice one..i think a lot of us are in the same dilemma now that we are on FB. Have to be "safer" and hence it could be boring and therefore..why blog? This post of yours is definitely not boring though! Welcome back Mrs N!

You did it! Times have changed and it will never be like the good 'ol days but it'll be nice to catch up here once in a while. I haven't updated mine...it'll be too emotionally taxing for me!

Salam Mrs N.
Keep writing and I'll keep reading!

MHB, now i remember your blog. I hope you are feeling much better now. It's ok to move on.. your late husband would want you be happy as well. At least you still have your stories of him here in your blog. You can go back to those times whenever you want to.

See you again soon! Take care.
