I Need To Resurrect My Blog

Lost Eden

It is with dismay that I survey the barren remains of what was a once proud and regularly-updated blog. It's a blogging wasteland as far as the eye can see. An undulating terrain of rushed posts, unoriginal quips and me-too photoshop'ed pictures stretch out for miles before me. What was once a cheesy, crappy, but uniquely 'me' landscape has now been turned into yet another random jumble of bits and bytes floating meaninglessly through the blogosphere - like how a piece of turd floats serenely through the foul smelling sewage of a Flora Alam sewerage pond.

Trudging through this desolate place, I stumble across a vast river whose waters were as still as night. The moonlight reflects of its surface in silverish hues of light, illuminating its banks with multiple hues of nothing.

From the depths of of its shimmering waters, the spirit of the countless bloggers whom I've mocked over the years emerge. Bloggers whom I've mocked for their gaudy tastes, lack of literary flair and senseless ramblings roll up slowly like a mist from the sea.

I can hear their tortured voices, haunting me...taunting me...

With their long, thin, crooked fingers they beckon in slow, curl-like motions...

...inviting me to the other side. A side where bimbo blogs and blogs about food consumed are the norm. A hellish place indeed.

I tried to flee, but my legs remained glued to the spot. My mouth opened, but there was no scream. Like a moth drawn to the fire, I felt my body inching ever closer over the edge of the river.

As my body careened over the banks of the river, sending me tumbling headlong into the inky darkness...I awoke with a start.

It was just a dream.

But it seemed so real. Glancing at my laptop, I saw the numbers 2 and 1 flash up on screen. It's the 21st of August, 6 days since I last updated my blog.

How long will this void last?

I have no idea

No idea, and ideas at all...
