1st Blog Bash 2010

People call me Rowena. A rather common name, don't you think? Though I try not to be as ordinary!  :) So I refer to myself here in the blogosphere as Fickle.

I'm a thirtyish single lady, working in an accounting office of an electronic company here in the southern part of Luzon, Philippines. I like nature trips (check here  to see some) and sometimes going with friends to the bar could be pretty cool. 

I tend to peoplewatch most of the time. You can bribe me with chocolates for anything! I love reading books, though I haven't tried any book posts yet. Maybe soon.

1.) Why do you blog? 
I blog because I love to write That's a given already. I blog because finally, I have found a place where I can be ME.ALL.THE.TIME. Others thought I'm aloof. Taciturn.  I can talk about the weather, I can listen to someone rant and rave for hours, I can talk about the one million and one mundane things, but I seldom TALK to just anyone. You know what I mean...
I can be free here because I know I won't be judged too harshly. Sometimes a kind or encouraging  word from a commenter could help change how I see and treat things.

2.) What do you blog about?  At first I thought I could have a doppelganger of me here. You know, the evil, darker side? But as I've read the words of my commenters, some of them funny, some serious, but just the same -- all thoughtful, and as my followers grew, I kind of become inclined to speak about the lighter ( though most of the time, serious)  side of anything and everything. 

3.) What do you find to be the biggest reward you get from blogging? This has become my de-stressor. It kind of relaxes me. It's good (and healthy, I think) to see things at a different point of view.  This is a great place to gather my thoughts into coherent words.

4.) How long have you been blogging? I tested the blogging waters in late 2008. Too late for a thirty-something full of random thoughts and observation woman!

5.) Let's hear the story behind your blog title! :) Hmmm. The deal behind Fickleinpink, the dark side? I wanted this to be  about someone who could get her way every time most of the time, who changes her mind as she please  (very much different from the actual me ::wink:: ) so I thought fickle is very apt.  "inpink" to give it a femme flair, add a little rebellious streak (hence, the dark side) here and there and voila! Welcome to the world of -----

I loved how you explained how you can be you all the time. Writing does that to me too. I feel like I'm a really open person but in person I tend to really over analyze what and why I'm saying something. Here I say whatever ;)
following you back ;)
