I opened a Blogger account in 2010, but, like my savings account, it remained dormant. I was afraid I had nothing to say or write. And if I did, I wasn't confident that I'd be able to sustain its longevity.
It's true that sometimes, you just gotta do what you gotta do. Ideas and inspiration have been generous to me so far, and they have given me something else to look forward to other than the weekend while at work on a Monday.
It's been a year since I finally hit the publish button on 23 March 2013. This is my 64th post, and my blogger page has been viewed (and hopefully read) 30,912 times to date. I'm sure it's not much but I have to get past the number crunching while trying my hardest to eventually call myself an essayist (I fail in this when I'm whinging about make-up, clothes, and other trivial topics), and, well, an amateur photographer.
To celebrate my first full year, allow me to look back to 2013 by sharing with you a round-up of my top 10 most read posts.

I'd like to thank fellow bloggers and lovely readers who've been sharing their thoughts on some of my posts and keeping me warm and cosy in this little online corner of mine. Well done to you for being supportive!
I'm quite nervous about this, but I'd like to invite you to let me know of contents you'd love to see on my page. Although my main purpose is to log my thoughts on things that I feel strongly (and sometimes stupidly) about, I though it would be good to up the interaction by asking you to join me in coming up with topics to talk about. Your suggestions are most welcome. No deliberate intention to mentally torture me though, please.
I work full-time and don't have the freedom to randomly gallivant whenever I please, so it would be quite a challenge. If a topic involves research, I will need a considerable amount of time to work on a piece.
You can leave your suggestions on the comment box, or email me, or drop me a message on my Facebook page. I look forward to hearing from you!
Again, thank you for a great year with you all!
