The Speech That Never Was but Hopefully Will

Hi.  
I had started this blog some eighteen days ago and then was followed immediately with a short-term hiatus.  My apologies for that.  My mind was quite at the state of commotion days after I began this blog.  It was a positive mental fracas though, but it still required me to have some motivation and focus, hence, the online absence.
You see, I engaged myself to self-improvement programs for a total of 36 hours.  Indeed a short period to acquire knowledge and to grasp all lessons taught, however it was worth the efforts.  Initially, my purpose for enrollment was not for new knowledge but primarily to satiate my impulses for human interaction.  The new skills and current, useful information acquired are expected bonuses.

Blogging has been the modern means to express one’s thoughts and the better avenue to exposing these thoughts to many.  I am a blogger since 2010 and the inception of this new blog is the 6th of my varied-platform blog sites.  Here’s a brief history of the many blogs I am currently maintaining with some hiatuses in between.
       Putting into action the learning I acquired from a certain online read on sustaining effective blogs, I decided to categorize my diverse interests.   My very first blog, created seven years ago, was mainly about fashion, personal style, travel, food and also included multifarious topics that I wanted to promulgate online.  Then I ventured into fashion styling. I started a different blo…
