Sorry, my lonely blog


Oh wow... I did came visit my own blog for a few times but didn't manage to post something until today... How long has it been? Nearly 2 years? Hell yeah.. I do have so many things to write, but my fingers are just too lazy to dance on the keyboard... To make it worse, the existence of many kinds of social media makes me lazier to keep updating this blogs.

I wonder if any of my friends still do personal blogs nowadays. Years back before Facebook became famous, a lot of people do personal blogs (yeah, that includes me). Expressing their feelings, complaining, sharing photos, videos, songs, link exchange and whatever they did on Facebook now... The best part during blog days was everyone shows their own skills in web/page customization, keep changing page skin/template to make it became more attractive and fun as if there was a blog beauty contest. Yeah, it was fun back then (well, atleast fun for me :p)

Ever since Facebook became so famous, I can't really recall when exactly...but I, myself signed up in Facebook since year 2008. Just like me, people became lazier to blog. Perhaps because Facebook offers simplicity via status updates. Twitter does too, except that Twitter has characters limit. Then, came Instagram. It attracts people with it's instant photo capture with it's own instant filters what-so-ever... They are so damn great and easy, people really could just forget Blogger! (and damn, that includes me too!)

Having this so-easy-and-everybody-use-this social media has it's own consequences too. This lately, I began to realize that people are starting to feel annoyed with other people's Facebook updates. Why is that? People starting to warn each other (with or without that other person know they are being warned -- I found this funny) that they are going to unfriend  that other person if they keep posting annoying updates. Ah! 'UNFRIEND' a modern word. Funny, not becoming friend nowadays become easier. Simply because they dislike that other person's updates showed on their own News Feed in Facebook people simply unfriend each other. It is more hilarious, two or more people are friends in whatever social media they're on, yet they completely ignore and pretended not know each other in real life. AWKWARD!

*tired now* ....and... Here I am, complaining about people in social media nowadays. Let's just think about it. Why would you feel annoyed on other people's update. If you don't like their status just don't read it. If you dislike their photos just ignore it. There is no need to update your own status saying you feel annoyed on other people's update. There is a setting prepared by these social media where you can filter what ever post showed on your news feed. What I'm saying is, why in the first place did you accept friend request if you're going to unfriend them later on.

I have a lot more thoughts than words about this social-media-and-people-stuff, I just feel tired to keep on typing. Just hope that I would keep updating my blog some other time.
