On Blogging In English

You might notice that in the past few weeks, I shifted from Taglish to English, and some of you are wondering why. I myself is wondering if I should continue this blogging in English thing or to go back to my usual way of blogging. Well, after doing some thinking, I’ve decided to continue to blog in English. Why? Because I want a wider readership. I want other people who doesn’t understand Tagalog to understand what I am blogging, so that they can react as well. And I also want to improve my English writing skills. And how can I improve it if I’m not going to practice it? Write? I mean, right?

So, here is a little disclaimer. I don’t have a good command of English. So, forgive me if I made some grammatical errors. I am just lazy checking everything on spell checker and grammar checker. I just rely on what I think is right, that if doesn’t sound right, then, it’s not right, am I right? Well, anyway, it’s the thought that counts. As long as you understand what I’m saying, then, we have no problem. Unless you are a grammar student copying your essay on this blog, you might have a problem with your professor. Hehehe. How do you laugh in English, by the way? LOL! I’m used to saying hehehe, from now on, I’ll say LOL! LOL! How about putting a u at the beginning? uLOL! LOL!

Here is what I’ve noticed. It’s hard to crack jokes in English. Really. I really don’t know how to start cracking some jokes in English. I think, it’s quite hard to deliver. Am I right? I myself find jokes delivered in English by a Filipino blogger quite corny. Or is it because I need to translate and decode everything first before I get what he’s saying? Maybe that is the reason. No, they are simply corny. Period.

Well, enough of my blogging nonsense today. It’s 12:00AM now, and I’m still awake, and not feeling sleepy until now. That’s why I was able to make this crappy post. Anyway, if you were able to read up to this point, congratulations and thank you very much!

That’s all!
