…and still, I’m always at fail when the time calls for another ‘sit down and ponder’, i.e. the unofficial Writer Block’s Week. Sigh. But on the bright side, no matter how I’d go and vanished for a moment, then returned like nothing happened, I’d never give a thought about leaving for good. To think that this blog was primarily a place for me to…write out my feelings about the dramas I was watching, I am happy because I decided to start writing on One Talking Cupboard.
So..as this is the anniversary post, I have to give some tidbits about this blog, right? I was quite addicted to tumblr at first and one day, I encountered the 30 Days Kdrama Challenge. Then I started writing about it and learned how to make sreencaps, and actually found it enjoyable to write about something that you really love to do. I’d been looking over wordpress for some time and thought, “How about a proper blog or myself about kdramas?” So I registered the name of the blog as “the talking cupboard”. I never thought that people would care about another crappy English speaker who likes to rant alone (that is me), but through this blog, I’ve got to know so many nice people, all united under the spells cast by kdramas and living happily in kdrama land (the line is so cheesy~). I might not be a person who can express my hate freely because that’s who I am, hence I don’t have that much opinion on dramas. Most of the time, I’d find even the most boring dramas to others quite interesting to me. I don’t have that qualification to judge a drama, so I’d leave it to the experts and enjoy whatever drama bestowed by the kdrama gods to me. The talking cupboard..hmmm..it starts off as a mere hobby, but after spending a year blogging fully in English, which isn’t my first language, I realized that I’m improving a lot, be it writing or speaking in English. Guess that kdramas are beneficial to me after all. There are times that I have to use dictionaries and such but as I’m still learning, so I just have to do it. And for the sake of this cupboard..I’ve burnt my sleep hours, writing non-stop for several hours, and even refused to go out when I was deeply engrossed in writing. It’s fair to say that it’s really part of my life right now. Since this blog is still young, I don’t find it necessary for me to do any competition or contest to commemorate the first year celebration (huh?). Instead, I am honored to give my deepest gratitude to few people whom I got to know through this talking cupboard. A virtual toast for all of them! ^^ kichul1106: my co-author, my friend, my twin. Although we’re separated by 18-hour time difference, but I feel like she’s in front me every time we chatted through twitter. shyangz: the owner of snip. Her/his blog is one of my cupboard’s idol blog and the entries are so great; they can make me roar with laughter, weep in sadness, or grin from ear to ear. electric ground: the traffic comes mostly from the blog’s directory. And the blog is forever awesome with the language and culture series! doramakaku: my spazzing buddy 😉 I miss her! She must be busy nowadays.. miss purple: I love to call her that. Her corner is cute and she herself is one cute and friendly girl! The other blogs that I always drop by are on the sidebar^^ They are the awesome people and never gets tired of supplying the updates and news about kdramas to the non-Korean fans around the world, so they really deserve the fame! Last but not least…to the readers and commenters, your presence always make my days brighter! Thanks for dropping by to read and gather yourself the courage to leave a comment for me. It’s not an easy thing to do (I’ve experienced it!) but to have people commenting on my lousy posts are flattering me. hihi. I’ll try not to give up on this blog halfway, although I’m afraid about it because I tend to easily be bored of something. But judging on how I am still sticking to dramas for almost 16 years already, I think I’ll be here, spazzing my heart out for quite some time. Just forgive me for some vanishing moments I would have because I easily encounter writer’s block from time to time. *FYI, this entry is written randomly. Forgive the incoherent words and sentences! i promise I’ll try my best to write better 😀
