I started my maiden blog post on 23 Dec 2010 – just before Christmas. How time flies! It’s now 4 weeks later, and near another holiday period – Chinese New Year!
I would like to take this time review this milestone; and to share my thanks to the below fellow bloggers who have kindly took the time to encourage and give constructive feedback me on my blogging journey (I know I know, blog one month already start saying “fellow” blogger. Shameless!)
1) Drizzt from http://www.investmentmoats.com
Like a duckling who imprints the first person it sees as “mother”, Drizzt will always be the “first” in my heart. It’s better than saying Drizzt is my “first kiss” kind of attraction….. Nah, not between guys! (Drizzt is probably saying now – I just woke up, face not washed, teeth haven’t brush, I don’t know anything, and have nothing to do with SMOL! )
Drizzt is the first to comment in my first blog posting, and showed interest to who is this new blogger with a weird moniker. For that I am very grateful. We all remember our firsts!
2) Sg financial freedom from http://sgfinancialfreedom.blogspot.com
What a fantastic surprise to find another “seasoned” blogger sharing his views on making New Year resolutions. I am reassured that even if I go against the “norms”, they are some like-minded people out there too. It’s OK to be different.
3) Temperament from http://temperament-forabettertomorrow.blogspot.com
I am glad to know that I’ve made at least one person laughed! I will continue to write irreverent posts, even if they are a bit “wu liao”. Life is stressed enough. Need to let our hair down a bit. Hey! Where did my hair go? (Look at my pic)
Thank you Temperament! You also gave me the confidence to write in Mandarin. It’s good to be “bi”. (I mean bilingual, not the other one!)
4) PanzerGrenadier from http://fivecentstencents.com/blog
When I was curious about why I am blogging, you welcomed me into this community by sharing the reasons why you got started in the first place. Imagine a person who has started blogging since 2003 taking the time to post a comment in my blog!?
Your actions speak louder than words! You could have easily taken the stance of: “I am the mountain; newbie you come to me, not I come to you”
Your generosity in encouragement and comment is very much welcomed! And appreciated.
5) Derek from http://thefinance.sg
I’ve already thanked you in a previous post, and I will thank you again. I now have a guest posting account in your blog!!!
This finance blogging community is so generous and helpful! I have a dilemma, I am not technically a finance blogger; but I guess just as long I post once in a while some matters concerning money, I can continue this “membership”?
6) La Papillion from http://bullythebear.blogspot.com
Ah! What can I say? Your recent postings have been a fantastic source of inspiration. I am so glad you have decided to stop posting on individual stocks. Not that I don’t appreciate your earlier posts, but your recent posts is allowing me to understand who is La Papillion. And that is infinitely more interesting (to me)!
And thanks for linking my blog to your blog rolls unsolicited (you are the first to do so!). It’s so interesting to see a lot of your readers dropping by to my blog after visiting you.
I now have to find a way to capture their attention. Most visitors come to my blog and leave in 00 seconds!? At least that’s what sitemeter tells me. I guess it’s a bit like going to the wrong toilet and hastily making an exit! Ha ha!
7) Wealth Journey from http://thewealthjourney.blogspot.com
I really appreciate your constructive feedback when I made an inappropriate comment in your blog recently.
I don’t need to say much more; since as long we continue to speak from the heart, I’ll be most contented.
8) Silent readers
To all other “silent” readers and bloggers, I thank you also! But if you can just drop a comment or note to me, I will be even more grateful. Even if it’s to tell me you don’t like a post or I’ve offended you in anyway.
If you don’t feel comfortable writing in public – you can email me privately: firstname.lastname@example.org
