Let’s imagine a femme fatale. She changes her men like she changes her clothes. She lavishes them with bespoken suits and expensive adornments. She keeps them in her private corner where daylight cannot creep in. Like clothes, they get to touch the deepest core of hers. Unlike clothes, they do not last after the next week.

In the past, I have blogged like a femme fatale. I got myself a new blog, a new name, a new alias. I decorated my blog with widgets, themes and pictures all in one night. I might have even written one post. Then the next day, as I changed into another outfit, I got bored with it. Into the discarded pile it went.

But things have changed. Now I have a reader. Just one reader which actually makes a huge difference. It’s not like pouring my heart out in front of a cold wall that cannot utter a single word. At least, I will get responses.

So this, I do hope, is a page being turned in my storybook of life. I’m writing for this one blogger – Intelligent Countess – who encouraged me to keep a blog for her sake. That, I think, is one of the most flattering thing a person has told me in quite a while. She is strong on commitment; maybe it’s time I turn off the femme fatale in me, and start working towards the seasoned writer I have always yearned to become.

Thank you Countess. And this blog, for you.

  1. thank you very much for re-blogging ‘my discussion’. you are very sweet and i hope that your Countess enjoys it. –
    i am happy you have stuck around – even if you did not re-blog me. i bet it is a challenge – going from one who enjoyed changing up to being a steady state kind of blogger. 🙂

    • Well, I am trying to get into the habit of writing something substantial everyday. At least the blog has so far proved to have a remedial effect on my stress. Just a bit, but still better than nothing! And I’m writing to keep in touch with my friend – Countess – too. I really like your writings by the way, that melancholic, rhythmic verses and proses I don’t often see elsewhere.

      • you are so sweet. thank you for your kind words. it is not easy to write everyday – some days it seems like I am overflowing and then there are those days where it is like trying to squeeze water out of a rock hard sponge. Yesterday was like that for me, but I figure, it is like exercise. Sometimes the body does need a day off:)
