Three Years of Daybreak
Before I knew it, the blog has now turned 3 years old. o_o
To the new visitors, I welcome you and thank you for stopping by.
To the returning readers, I thank you for coming back to my humble blog.
To be honest it's a little hard for me to imagine that I would manage to continue blogging for this long. Looking back retrospectively, this blog was (re)started during the time when there was a boom of similar blogs as encouraged by Danny Choo to blog for oneself. Not surprisingly, due to various reasons many blogs I follow are slowly fading away, be it that they have lost motivation, real life issues, or that they have moved on to the next big thing out there. Sadly some have disappeared completely without a word. I suppose things come and go, so it's just a matter of time really.
Admittedly, blogging is quite a time consuming activity, and with me being a slow reader and thinker, this makes everything take longer to do ^^; Having to catch up with my various kinds of hobby (from Gundam to little pretty girls aka bishoujos to military etc), as well as the blogs and other news online, it really can be a bit tiring!
But it's nice to share things out one enjoys in the form of personal blogs. You share things you like to people with common interest, exchange opinions, and make friends online this way, some even face-to-face eventually! That's what blogging is about I'd think. And it's nice to keep up this way.
One surprise hit was the McDonald Sasuke Toy post that I have made last September. The popularity of the post is mainly driven by reddit. A big thanks to those who share it out there for me. Put all those view counts and statistics gibberish aside, even though the content is just something I've shared from what I've found, it's very nice and heartwarming to see people leaving comments saying how a post like that enlightens their day or just brings a smile to their faces.
Given the fact that I am now in Hong Kong, it does mean that I have greater access to toys and easier too (compared to the days in the UK). Sure, I don't know how long I'll continue blogging for, but with my interest and hobby still around I don't see myself disappearing, at least in the near future. There are still a number of things I look forward to, be it the new Gundam THE ORIGIN animation, the figma WRS, or Ace Combat: Assault Horizon (yep I've been going into the Ace Combat series recently). This pretty much shows how mixed my interest has really been (despite the fact that I don't talk about some of them like military so often on the blog) - it's slowly turning into a spaghetti mess ^^;
Last but not least, I want to give a big thanks to all those who have continued to support me on the blogosphere, as well as on other medium such as twitter. Your comments, emails, or tweets are really appreciated and valued!
