Bhutanese Bloggers e-Conference
I would like to thank Rekha Monger and Penstar for initiating a way to let bloggers know each other better. It gives me a chance to introduce myself to those who don’t know me.
1. Why did you start blogging in the first place? And what’s the story behind your blog title?
ð I started blogging mainly to keep up my interest in writing. It gave me the space and opportunity. It sprung as a result of my interest in writing, and the habit of keeping a journal. I transferred almost all the writings I had maintained before in my journals/notebooks to my blog. The title of my blog speaks for itself. It is more like a diary – keeping note of what happens to me, what I observe and sometimes, I write fictional short stories.
2. How long have you been blogging? Where are you based?
ð I have been blogging since 2007. I think I actually started in 2006. I initially blogged in wordpress.com but later moved it to blogspot.com because of the ease of use it offers in being able to use it with my gmail account. I currently live in Thimphu, but my hometown is Bartsham, in Tashigang District.
3. How do you schedule your blog post? Daily or weekly? Or as and when inspiration strikes you?
ð There is no specific timetable in writing for my blog. I write whenever an inspiration strikes me, or when I hold an emotion so strong that I feel the need to shed it. But it is not every time an inspiration strikes me that I am able to make a post. Sometimes, I could be in a meeting, walking in a street, or some place where I don’t have the necessary tool to note what I want to write at that moment. And when I get to my table, the inspiration would have already died.
4. Does your family and friends know about your blog?
ð Some of them do, some of them don’t. I think it depends on their interest in reading. More specifically, some just don’t bother what I write, or what my interests are in, even though they may be close to me.
