Third time’s the charm

Three years ago on this day, I started up this blog. It’s hard to believe that I’ve been able to keep it up and running for such a long time. What’s even harder to believe is that I’ve managed to come up with all these content. It surprises me to read the things that I’ve written in the last three years. A lot has changed since March 15, 2005.

I’ve gone back and read a few of my older posts and it seems a little weird reading everything. It’s like seeing life through the eyes of someone else. I feel like the guy who I was is not the same guy that I am. My earlier writing makes me sound like I was a young guy who is just stepping out into the world and test the waters. Back then, I didn’t know what was going on. I didn’t know where I was going. I didn’t know much about anything.

My writing style has changed a bit as well. Before I was writing about everyday things but now I’m writing about life. I’ve gone from general topics to more specific topics. My posts aren’t just nonsense about this and that anymore. I’m actually writing more thought-provoking issues. And I don’t just write about life, I’m writing about life experiences. It’s nice to actually go back and read my writings to see that I’ve changed in some way. In a sense, I’ve matured.

I also find it weird that I’m criticizing myself as I read those older posts. I see a lot of spelling and grammatical mistakes that I did not see when I typed out those posts. And I’m pretty sure that I used a spell checker before posting them up too. There were even cases where I left a word out completely. What in the world was I smoking back then? I don’t’ know why I do it but sometimes I’m thinking about one word but I end up typing another. But these days, I try to avoid these minor mistakes.

Since this is the 3rd year anniversary, I should have put together the new layout. Unfortunately, I’m rather busy these days to get one started. I know that I should have used the “Shy Blossom” theme but something came up and I’ll be using that theme for another site. So the new theme will have to wait. One of these days, I’m going to sit down and draw out a new layout. Sooner or later, this site will have a new look, just not at this moment.
