Seeking Opinion

I was taking pictures of foods as usual at a gathering last week.  Was telling a friend that i am writing blog.  The friend ask me what is blog and after explaining a bit about blog to the friend.  The friend told me not to waste time in writing blog.  Is writing blog a waste of time?

As to me, writing a blog is like a diary and to record down some of my daily life. 

This is the 2nd time.  The 1st time, another friend was telling me not to spend too much time on blog.

  1. 浪费不浪费时间看个人的

    对我而言,我并没有觉得浪费时间
    - 把美好分享,多一个人知道,没有坏!
    - 我认识你,你是一个在新加坡很热情的一个朋友。
    - 有很多事情,现在记录起来,不只是你生活日记,说不定日后也可以为历史做了记载。

  3. This is the reasons I don;t tell my friends and relatives about my blog. I prefer to write without expectations. Now so many years later, I have made nice friends with so many people like you and others "online". I learn a lot of valuable knowledge and ideas from other bloggers who shared about their travels, restaurants and new products. I also feel happy to share anything in return. My silent readers who emailed me privately are the best motivations I have ever received and they appreciate it.

    Most of my male friends are sadly morons and bigots who spend lots of time playing online games, gambling, drinking and womanising! Some are so broke and go around borrowing money before disappear into thin air.

    I only have 2 bloggers from Singapore whom I am following today. I get a lot of food & weather updates from you always. So please continue yeah! Wakakaka

    My wife and I use my blog postings as references often to recall the dates of our trips. It is really like a diary now.

    BTW it is so damn hot today! I am sweating buckets of sweats since yesterday.

    1. I would advise your friend not to spend to much time on her Facebook. This media has poisoned many minds besides creating jealousy amongst the shallow minded. Better read blogs la.

  5. If it make you or me happy, who gives a damn what others say? Ask them what they do - bet we will also think that it's a sheer waste of their time. People are such busybodies - why should they care what we do when we are not bothered at all what they do - nosey parkers!

    1. For me, it keeps me mentally active and I enjoy it very much...plus I have made so many new friends, all so nice, so kind, so generous - I would not have met them if I had not been blogging. Of course, some do it for the money!

      Delete
    2. For me, blogging is not about money... And am glad to makes friends through blogging...

  6. Same as TM, I don't tell many people about my blog.. People who knows about my blog, they discovered it themselves when I was typing in office.. Other than that, all also bloggers from this circle.. My personal friends, I think only 1 or 2.. Blogging is all up to us one.. As a diary, for record.. You sukak, you blog.. You don't sukak or busy, you stop a while lor.. Your like, your blog ma..

  7. it's actually a very subjective and personal opinion whether blogging is a waste of time.. to us bloggers of course we find 1001 reasons to blog.. anyway, if the frequency doesn't click, then no point bothering about your friend's opinion.. to each his own, but we are nobody to criticize other people's passion.. :)

    1. For me, i do not like to criticize other's passion, they have their passion, i respect their passion unless the hobbies or passion is of no good...

  9. If you don't blog, what do you do during your free time? Play online games? That is even more meaningless. At least through blogging, it helps to relieve my stress, my vocabulary improved, I get to read information about new products, restaurants and other countries, I learned something, I must say I enjoy blogging a lot

    1. For me, blogging is recording down of where i go, where i eat, etc... And through blogging, i get to know more about other's and also like what you mention, read information....

  10. Well, it's entirely up to you. And, you can earn some $$ from blogs. Depends on your priority lor... And, yes it can be time wasting too but so as other hobbies/recreations.

  11. It all depends on your own interest and hobby, nothing is wrong and nothing is right. Just do whatever you like.

    1. I just listen, as each person has different interest and hobby...

  12. It is all individual opinion. How you manage and how you prioritise your time and effort. Dont let other demotivate you.

    1. My that friend is not a blogger, but that won't stop me to be a blogger...

  13. Next time you just reply them, "that's my hobby, I can do whatever I like, not like you can control, I felt very happy when I was writing my blog" then they would have nothing to say already. Sometimes we just have to make a conclusion for people stop asking and stop them 單方面先入為主。

    老實說,他們都是說說就算,說了就忘了,有時候某些人說了某些事,其實90%都是說來接話,還沒經思考後再說,所以他們事後幾分鐘,甚至幾秒後就會忘了自己剛剛說了什麼。別人的看法說法都是一個意見,好的話就收納,不好的話就讓風吹走吧,太陽還是會再升起。

  14. It all depends on individual. I blog as a hobby and I get to know many blogging friends, people like you, Sharon. As long as we set our priorities right and not go overboard, we can enjoy. It all depends on where our interest is.

  15. 这要看个人了,我觉得记录生活、分享美好的事物并不会浪费时间,而且透过部落认识更多朋友也是不错的,就像我认识你一样。^^

  16. You are blogging for yourself not for them so don't let people tell you what to do with your life.

    I've been blogging since 2003 and it's learning experience. When I look back my old entries, I learn to laugh/amaze at myself over the thing I used to do or say. It's like a memory bank of my past.

    Keep on blogging!
