Well.. Well.. Well..
Here we go again!
How's everyone doing? I'm baaaaack! Again!!! loool :D
In case anyone of my lovely readers is actually missing my blog, enjoy my comeback! Take two! ;P
Yes, I'm aware that I've already pointed out I was coming back like two months ago (yikes!), but as usual, distractions & sharing thoughts elsewhere (on my FB & Twitter pages) have been really pushing me away from my dear blog! I miss you, dear blog! I miss my humble number of readers! Even those who just pass by & never leave their thoughts! I miss the blogosphere, even though it certainly doesn't seem to be as popular as it once was. I've noticed that less & less reader comments are being submitted every day, at least here in Kuwait. Even the most popular blogs are getting far much less comments than, say, just a year or two ago. Now, I'm not talking about page traffic, so please, don't get me wrong.
I wonder why.
Why aren't readers (of Kuwaiti blogosphere) leaving comments as much as in the past? For one major reason, I think I have to blame addictive social networks & mobile messaging for that. For example, Twitter has taken over the lives of Kuwaiti users especially in the last year, that a lot of them have virtually shifted from Facebook to Twitter! And then, there's WhatsApp, this highly engaging mobile messaging app that got more people really connected & made those who don't have it installed miss a lot & feel like such aliens. Having so many social networks one is a member of is definitely adding to the reasons why fewer readers are leaving comments anymore; they're simply being bombarded with millions of pieces of news & information by the second!
And I can't say I haven't caught the bug. You see, due to the faster pace of life (which keeps getting faster & faster & never slowing down!), I've been finding myself sharing my thoughts & interesting things I find online in a Facebook post or a tweet. That's mostly what's been keeping me away from my beloved blog.
But I'm back! I miss the cosiness of "independence" & "ME" here. My own space where I share my most deep inner thoughts & journalistic covers. I have so much thoughts & ideas to work on to perfect my little space. I wish I get a lot of things productively done this year. One of my new year's resolutions is to bring my blog back to my priorities & make it far much better!!!
Wish me luck, everyone! :D
And since this is my first post in 2012:
HAPPY belated NEW YEAR to all! ;P
May this year really becomes a better year for the whole wide world!!
P.S: It will really mean a lot, boost my motivation level, lift my spirits & get me going, if my lovely readers (& passersby!) took just a "little" pause & left me an encouraging "Welcome Back!" &/or "Good Luck!" after reading this :)
