How My Blog Suprised Me

Forgive me for late post because Friday until Sunday, I had had full event for my office birthday. I made this post in order to join Blog English Club: Unexpected Events From My Blog. Sorry for the grammar mistake ^.^

Unexpected event of my blog is when my blog became nominated for blog competition Globalising Muslim/Halal Lifestyle Sector: How ETU X Wardah Campaign on VAMFF 2016 will Contribute to Indonesian Local Brand Competitiveness in the Global Market. I was invited to join lunch meeting with Restu Anggraini, the muslim fashion designer. She is very talented person and I admire her. But unfortunately the previous week, I had returned home to Jakarta, so I was afraid my money didn’t enough to survived until the end of the next month. But after writing this post, I conscious why I’m so stupid and really regret to squandered that opportunity. I need Doraemon time machine!!!


Beside that unexpected even because my blog, for me write in blog was unexpected decision that changed my life, especially my personality. My blog like medicine that could cure me. Sometimes I consider myself was strange person, why my friend happy to hangout but I prefer to read books in my room. At the party, I feel alienated myself and stand at corner while searching whom I knew people in the party, like the song I’m with you from Avril Lavigne.
I’m looking for a place
I’m searching for a face
Is anybody here I know

For me, write in blog means many things: a lot of reading, hanging out, doing positive activity and learning. Reading is the weapon for writing. Surprisingly, by reading I finally find my true personality. I am included one third of people in this world called introvert. There is nothing wrong become introvert, just how we deduct our energy. Extrovert person charge the energy by socialize with other, whereas introverts charge their energy with lonely time.


The more I go into true myself, the more grateful to the gift of God’s love. For example, I found introvert person more ‘open’ in writing than speaking. One of positive side being introvert is independent, so introvert don’t need other people to doing something. I was join IELTS class without my friend that I know before. I know this things because I read book and blog. Even I have an idea become the introvert expert like Susan Cain or Michella Chung (introvertsprings.com), that theme was rarely in Indonesia right? lol


With blog I more exciting meet new people and join writing events. I love socialize with blogger community because introvert hate small talk but when we meet community with same vision with us, we can talk more deep. I am pleased to get acquainted with new friends even when together in big group, I prefer to observe it and be more open when talking face to face. For me, blogger are awesome person because we support each other in positive things. I envy with Bang Dani because he can get more than 1000 unique visitor each day, I envy with Mbak Evrina because she often win blog competition. Envy feeling make our curious why they blog can achieve that and we ‘kepo’ and learn from their article.

Write in blog means a lot of to learn. To optimize my article, I learnt photoshop, bought mirrorless camera so my photo more eye catching and bought video and animate bundle form internet marketer so I could create a cute graphic. Yup, as like dr. Gamal Albinsaid said that passion is something that makes us excited to do it, we enjoy it. Kept thinking and couldn’t wait to do it. We willing to do that activity even if not paid. In certain point we are willing to pay.

Write in blog can make me more fluent in english. The search keywords in my blog are about English, so I enthusiastic share tips in English. Join in Blog English Club is one of way to improve my writing skill. I feel like I’m doing IELTS writing test part 2.


Making money through blog? It’s not actually my main aim. Share my thought, provide information and share good and positive thing is my objective in blog. But now, I have other vision when blogging. I hope my blog will become my brand and will differentiate me with other employer in my company so I can work in Jakarta again. I built niche blog to discuss about risk management. If my blog will become value added for my mutation, it will be amazing moment
