You know what’s more interesting that reading what bloggers are saying today? Reading what bloggers have said when they first started blogging…especially if they are bloggers of a certain reputation. Remember when we all watched young Anakin in the Episode 1 (I know it sucked but bear with me)? I don’t know about you but I sat there in the cinema thinking, “He’s going to be the end of all things for the Jedi?”.
Ok so no blogger today actually has the repute of being the end of all things. But the concept still stands anyway. Reading a blogger’s first post and comparing it to what they have today, you could either go, “He/She hasn’t changed one bit!” or “I can’t believe he/she write like this now!” It’s amusing. It’s one of the few things that settle down the otherwise tense blogging atmosphere we have today. So I thought I’d toss in some of our favourite bloggers down the list and see where it goes.
“Hello readers and welcome to kennysia.com. My name is er… Kenny. In the coming days, I shall be exploring the inner workings of my mind, and begin the journey of re-discovering myself.”
Well Kenny…you certainly discovered a lot, that much I can tell.
“First posts should be pretty meaningful, right? OK, so I’ve dug out some old, old poetry and here they are. Don’t laugh.”
Of all the first posts, this has got to be my favourite. On Friday the 13th no less.
“Yes. I used mayonnaise as a hair mask and now they smell like puke. On the bright side, my hair is looking so sleek. I think I might do this more often.”
That’s certainly…appetizingly narcissistic.
“So, what is interesting about blogging? For one, once where we could bitch to a few friends over a cup of teh tarik about how bad our day was, now we can bitch to the whole world about it. Cool, isnï¿½t it?”
If the past few days were a testament to foresight, I’d say you have it just about right.
The sad thing here is that there are some blogger’s that I would have love to read their first posts. Particularly, Suanie, Lainie, and (egads!!) MENJ. The thing is, I can’t really find them. So if they read this or if anyone knows where their first blog posts are located, toss the links over to me ok?
Aside from that, this could go on and on if I were to list down all the first posts of all the regular bloggers I (occassionally) read. But then that’s best left for you readers to go out there to your favourite blogs and read their first posts. It just helps you put a sense of “innocence” when it comes to blogging…the kind that we need in this day and age of blogging…the kind that can also still scream Anakin Skywalker. Of course…that might just be my imagination…or a premonition. Which it is? Forget I did.
