My daily routine of heading to work has been put on hold for sometime now. This has given me the opportunity to re-ignite hobbies of old: reading and writing. With more time to spare, I was able to read those pocketbooks gathering dust on the shelf. I got to unwrap subscriptions of unopened journals and magazines and read them all.
Coincidentally, I have had this longing to write about my own culture the moment I realised its slow demise and how much I have actually taken it for granted.
To blog: As I browsed through some photos of home, my ‘creative juices’ kicked off. I took courage and started writing. I decided I wanted a reader audience and learned the intricacies of blogging. This site, Opinions Matter, came to life.
My first attempt to blog about my roots, Hometown Fortress came to fruition.
I suddenly felt that I wanted to write more about anything and share my opinions from my heart’s point of view. Not only have I discovered that blogging is an avenue for doing such but also a way of knowing the eccentricities and convictions of other people. Blogging has indeed widened my writing horizon.
To blog more: My determination to share my culture in writing has not waned, therefore, a separate site, www.benguetsite.wordpress.com has been created.
I hope that through this specific site, I will be able to relay the significance of not just knowing but also remembering one’s culture and traditions. Hence, passing a priceless heritage to generations still to come.
Otherwise, stay tuned to more of my opinionated blogs about a lot of things under the sun.
