3 Year Blog Anniversary

I started this blog on the 24th of May 2006. Last year, I skipped mentioning it. This year, I’ve spent the weekend away from the computer. Well, I spent last Sunday and Monday away. Today, I was back in front of the computer.

In three years, I’ve posted 5,148 posts.

You’ve left 4,358 comments.

You’ve visited this blog 1,448,190 times.

When I started freelancing, I had to cut down on the original posts on this site. I still have about 500 asides to rescue from my old memoirs feed, which I plan to do during the summer.

You’ll be happy to find out that I haven’t stopped writing. When I mention writing, I mean creative fiction writing. There is also a story out there that I found that I want to tell, hopefully in print.

In the coming months, I’ll probably be doing more freelancing.

What can you look forward to on this blog?

More reviews, more photos, more essays and opinions.

What is my blog to me?

It’s a form of expression. I haven’t gone on FB this year and I don’t twitter or tumble, so I’m stuck doing this the old fashioned way. At least that’s what I tell myself. I love blogs. What you write is immediately published when you push the magical Publish button on your dashboard. My words come to life.

Then again, I’m not a great writer. Well, I think I could be good, but I need a lot of work. Parts of my writing have drastically improved over the last three years, and this is due to my daily writings on this blog. This blog has led me to opportunities that I wouldn’t have usually had in the past.

Some blogs get really into personal details and publish daily accounts of what happens in their author’s lives. I’m not like that. If you really want to know, I do keep a diary. I don’t plan on publishing it and I’ve had it written by hand and on my computer. I’m not that particular, but I do love writing things by hand.

Over the last three years, my life has been going up and down. More down than up if I’m honest. At least I have my wife, my dog, and since last year, my cat and I know that they all love me.

Here’s to another good year of posts and writing. Hope you’ll stick around.

Modern Ovalia Chair: The Adjustable Computer Workstation

052609_rg_bud_workstation_01.jpgWe all love the Ovalia egg chair. It’s an iconic piece of furniture from the 60s. Since it hasn’t been produced for over 30 years, it’s hard to find these days. Previously, unless you could afford the price for those vintage pieces of furniture or the new ones with some fancy speakers, you were out of luck. Now, the iconic chair has been reinterpreted for our modern lives. We like how the Bud Adjustable Computer Workstation pays an homage to the Ovalia chair.

Eggshell Speakers: Tiny Yet Powerful

052609_rg_eggshell_speaker_01.jpgWhat are eggshells used for? Apart from housing our morning breakfast, we’d be at a loss to say, but that didn’t stop Gomhi from using eggshells to craft a pair of tiny and cute looking loudspeakers. These delicate looking speakers were made as a DIY project.
