This is a three part post about my blogging experience so far. Read on and I would love to read your comments.

Not so long ago, I was introduced to the world of blogging. That was around 2006 … OK, that was slightly long time ago — Where did the time go?! Anyway … I started blogging because I needed an outlet. I had to do something about being homesick and so far away from my family. In a way, my blog is to update my family back home. So I would still feel connected somehow.
Back then, I would write about almost anything. I’d post photos of things I find funny … like this advert:
Or places that I have been to:
Or movies I’ve watched:
Or food I craved for:
I also shared photos of me, my family, my friends and the things that we have been doing. Isn’t that what’s a blog about?! I have always been careful not to over share… I still value my privacy (which I will discuss separately).
I loved my old blog. It was free flowing. No pressure. Of course there were times I “disappeared” from blogging. Taking a break is healthy. We have things to do in real life, yes? We should be busy living life, not documenting it.
Things changed when I learned that I was being attacked in the cyber world.
