Reluctant Blogger

My bestfriend Aurie had always been encouraging me to get a blogger account but I always fended her off with excuses, such as, "I have nothing to say", "what will I put in it?" and "I'm too busy". But lately, she has invited me to be in the core team of the Pinoyscrapbookers blog spot. She said that it's "necessary" for me to get a blogger's account. Which makes me think sometimes, "did she finally find the perfect excuse to get me into this?" Well, I'm here. So I might as well make the best out of it. Now, I'm fairly new in this blogging thingy, and knowing my personality, it'll take me a long while before I get used to it. You see, I'm the sort of person who likes keeping to myself and never liked being put on the fore-front to be criticized, you know? Oh heck, let's call a spade, a spade: I have very low self-esteem. There - it's out in the open. Oh, I'm quite competitive alright but it's usually work-related. They call me The Dragon Lady behind my back, would you believe? Though I don't think it's meant to be a compliment. LOL. But when it comes to my personal life, I'd rather stay in my comfort zone, thank-you-very-much. In fact, that's exactly why I love having Aurie as my bestfriend. She takes all the risks and does all the crazy stuff, giving anybody who dares come between her that devil-may-care attitude. I just love it! Because of her, I get to tag along with the wild ride. I get to do things I'm too afraid to even imagine. I get to be care-free and I'm loving it. Which brings us back to this blog thingy - Now knowing it's Aurie who pushed me into this and given her track record with me... there's a very big chance that I might just start liking this.

Hey, dear! Glad to see you finally in the world of blogging. I feel exactly the same way, that most of the time, I don't have anything to say.

But think of blogging as a personal diary or just a place to express yourself or vent. Anyway, being a scrapper, you just have to have a blog to post those gorgeous layouts you've been doing.

Good luck and hope you learn to love it as we have.

"You have been assimilated. Resistance is futile." Hehe.

Uuuyyy, may comment na ako - this is thrilling! Heller Lee, at least I got to give you a bellyful of laugh. Raissa, you're from Vigan? (Sigh) Eversince college, I've always dreamt of visiting your place. In fact, it's in my 'one of the things I got to do before I go kaput' list. Nina, always so supportive (sweet ka talaga). Thank you all for making my day :D

Bespren Au, marami ka pang ituturo sa akin... saka na kita pasasalamatan pag madunong na talaga ako. Ika nga, I am holding my gratitude to you in hostage hanggang di mo pa ako completely natuturuan :P
