How Did I Started Blogging?

I love to read entries about 'how did I started blogging'. They inspired me a lot and made me reminiscence of my old days when I first started. It has been quite a while when I had the idea to write an entry about this so here we go~

It was 7 years ago, when I was 16. My English teacher, Ms Mahani, gave us a homework to start a blog, in English, of course. She asked us to at least write once a week about anything and she would monitor those and give us the marks. Its sole purpose was to improve our writing skills in English for a better writing in SPM (I still did poorly despite the interesting method, I'm sorry miss!). However, toward the end of the year, she didn't check the blog anymore. Since I wasn't fond on writing back then, I naturally ditched the blog too.

After quite some time, when it was nearing SPM, my friend who loved reading blogs told me about this one blog, Realiti Konspirasi by Zack Zukhairi. I actually loved his cute drawings more and then slowly I read the writings. His humor in writing and easy going style, like he was conversing with the readers made me fell in love in his writings (too bad he stopped blogging). 

One day after I read Realiti Konspirasi for a while, I decided to write like one. I know I won't be as good as Zack but I want to try nonetheless. So I reopened my blog, got rid of the immature posts, redesign the blog and I started to write again. That's when my passion for writing started to grow. You can read my first ever post here.
Was I doing okay for a first timer?

As a beginner and learned how to grow the blog (improving the contents and writing skill, getting followers, comments, yada yada), I was so excited and wrote so much, like I need to blog about every little things so I wrote up to 3-6 entries per day. Phew, that's a lot! Then, came the commitment of being a uni student and now working life, so I didn't write as much anymore.

Addicted to writing, I even dreamed of being a writer when I grow up but who am I to deny my already written future by Him, right? I draw more instead of writing now, not that I complained, I love my job! But the love for writing also was still there, deep down inside of the drawings ideas so I keep on writing as a hobby, a passionate one. I hope you enjoy reading my passion as I enjoy writing them.
