Why I Write

It's been a year now since I started this blog. How time flies! It's been a year and I'm still here. Writing. Reading. Sharing. Commenting. B*tching around as if I have the guts. Hahaha..

I used to have an archive of the posts I had done with the late Friendster. Influenced by my first boyfriend then to blog about my life, I was able to compile a good collection of daily stories and reflection way back in college and on the first few years of work. However, with the passing of time, breaking up, shutting down of Friendster and mourning of my young heart, I decided to totally forget all about it. None survived. That was like 7 or 8 years ago.

Dang! This backtracking makes me feel so old! Maybe I should stop right here.

But no, let me proceed.


Write. Erase. Write more until you get it right.


My desire to write is usually pumped up by deep emotional turmoil or intense happiness. All I know is I had to let it out. And writing had been an avenue for me to vent it all out. Until now, that's why I write here. Sharing my experiences to others really never came into my mind until I gained followers. Funny, coz I never really see these posts of mine worth-following or worth-reading by others.

So for those who take time, took time and still comes back here, thank you, from the bottom of my heart  


Year 2013 and blogging had brought a lot of many great memories for me. I had come to know wonderful writers. I laughed, cried, related, empathized with a lot of other experiences. I had the chance to join an outreach through PBO. I am happy to see that the organization is growing so fast and many are very much willing to share their resources for its success. 

I had made friends just by clicking and reading other people's pages. I even received unexpected gifts! How cool was that! I can never thank you all enough! 

I really want to meet other bloggers especially those whose pages I follow. I want to personally extend my admiration about what and how they write. Maybe exchange opinions regarding common issues and LEARN. It feels good to be able to talk to brilliant people, especially if they had no idea how brilliant they are. 

I can never claim to have creative writing juices in me. I just write what I can. I used to dream of having a published article in one of the prestigious newspapers in the country. For now, it's still a dream. Who knows, I may fulfill it this year. If not, then maybe the following year. Hashtag Never Say Die. For now, let every piece of writing be a document of what happens with my life as an individual, a girl, a daughter, a sister, a friend, a teacher, ultimately, as a dreamer.

  1. We write because we're not animals. We write because it's a luxury. We write because we can't do anything else other than this. And I am sipping alcohol right now. Hahaha!

    The thing about writing is that it has allowed us to begin a new life. I owe so much to writing. WE owe a lot to it.

  3. Your reason in writing is VALID for me, as it helps you release emotional tensions in your heart - be it in a happy mood or sad. Each of us has unique writing style - and I believe anyone can write as long as they desire to do so. We each have our creative juices distinct from one another. We write because we want to share something, we want to say something, we wan to express ourselves in the comfort of using a pen. You can never deny or suppress the passion you have in writing. At some point, you'll stop but then after some hiatus moments you'll be back into its fold. Once a writer will always be one and will remain one.

    1. Thanks Dadijay! Coming from someone who had been at a hiatus, I can feel that you totally miss writing and sharing your thoughts. I am so happy that you are back online and writing and even happier coz you take time to visit my little space :)

  4. there are different reasons why we write. ung iba nagtatago sa ibang katauhan for them to express their emotions and tell their stories.
    sometimes we write to escape. it is a document also of our emotions. di rin ako magaling mag sulat peo okay lang as long as I share my thoughts. lols

  7. It's my digital diary, that's why I write. There are no standards I need to follow as dictated by people. I write and I learned how to share my ideas and thoughts. I wanted to be an inspiration even to just one, if not, to move people with my stories. By sharing my blog, I was also given the chance to meet new people like you whom I now consider as someone precious. I am honoured to have been a part of your blogging world.

    Keep on writing and when we are old and grey, we can always go back and reminisce the stories we had not just as writers, but also as movers and inspirators.

    1. You really are an inspiration Cher Jo :) As for me, I wish I can still say the same. Pero ang hirap mag inspire when I am not internally motivated, very disappointed with the system.... Huhuhu

  8. I admit, I am not a writer. That is way I have more photos. hehehehe. Blogging was a way to be more conscious of writing better English at first. It's an outlet of a full time domestic goddess. (That's me.) Meeting new friends online, learning from them, and joining them in their journeys is a bonus.

    Thank you too. Your online presence is lovely.
