It was my iphone-me-time when I encountered masterclass commercial on youtube. This time, it was not Gordon Ramsay. She was actually a rather old and peculiar woman, offering online class on being a writer. And she took my attention greatly. She said, if I thought I was a writer, maybe I am. Interesting.

One video leads to another, I ended up listening to Malcolm Gladwell’s top ten rules for success. He is, of course, my favourite writer, need to be noted. While, I ended up on number 4, I managed to turn on my laptop and start writing this blogpost.

Malcolm Gladwell’s top ten rules for success. They include:

  1. Have the courage to pursue your idea.
  2. Try a new approach.
  3. Believe in meaningful work.
  4. Constantly revise your conclusions.
  5. Distinguish yourself from others.
  6. Practice.
  7. Explore.
  8. Be patient.
  9. Understand the rules of business.
  10. Outwork others.

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 4,200 times in 2013. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 4 trips to carry that many people.

carrie-bradshawMe wanna be like Carrie Bradshaw as THE Carrie Bradshaw from Sex and The City.


but I have been biting my finger nails for the past five minutes….simply thinking what to write. So much for a writer, I supposed. The idea has been bothering me for the past months. But I just don’t know how to start less to maintain.

However, in the middle of my boredom, I opened my chat log with one of my friends. The last chat I made with him was 1 year and couple of days. As I went through the lines, I was shocked to know what kind of person I was at that time. Bewildered with that fact, I forced my self to open his blog. I am amazed that he has not change. And my guess is, even if he had some changes, those changes are absolutely positive.

I noticed that I learned so much from that chats records that I needed to keep recording my self, my days, my thoughts and everything, if possible. So here I am, at my first blog.

Help me to be Carrie Bradshaw ;p

on my own way…
