Whenever I log in to my blog, I always try to create new informative post about oil paintings, else it would be a new post on Chinese culture.
As my blog remains logging in on one of the browser tabs, I switch to other tab to view the notifications from my Facebook.
Then toggle to another neighboring tab with Twitter log in to re-tweet, thanking those who followed me. Plus one browser tab parking next to Twitter on the newly signed up Google Plus account.
I continue to read my emails and news feed on oil paintings and Chinese culture. The emails that never seems to stop receiving.
Wow! I look triply busy than a bumblebee bringing its nectar to the hive.
Fingers typing shortcut keys exercise more actively than my legs can jog round the rubber tracks. Flipping, toggling, typing, eyes gazing from left to right, top to bottom.
Social media is actually more addictive than cigarettes or alcohol.
By the time I reminded myself of blogging, it is already lunch time.
Does that describe you as a new blogger?
Time passed. The result of my blog is nullify by the time spent on social media and emails. I ought to be more organized and be self-discipline.
SO I did for the past 2 weeks. Not blogging, but for my planing and preparation. I put in effort to mind-map and to encapsulate all my content for this blog.
Beside oil paintings and Chinese culture, there are series of activities adding in the pipeline. I even to expand the topics even further about contemporary Chinese artists.
That include Ai Weiwei, China’s most famous dissident artist, Zeng Fanzhi, international artist based in Beijing, and many notable Chinese artists.
Beside Chinese artists, another important attribute of sharing in this blog is art auction held in HongKong by Christie’s and Sotheby’s. I be learning to catch up on those events.
Both auction house have been proactively evolving their presence in Asia, particularly, in fine art paintings from Eastern Asia, China.
The knowledge I’m having is by far too shallow to share with the audience reading my blog. However, it is one of the direction I be looking forward in the coming years.
Fundamentally, knowledge of oil paintings is the crucial element here, as well as topics about Chinese culture which is my forte. Like what I have mentioned on my last post, oil paintings will be a challenge for me to develop my knowledge-based research skill.
There are a couple of items I need to spend time planing on this blog.
Blogging is like a Chinese chef from royal palace, using his creativity concocting the special ingredients of authentic cuisine. Otherwise, beheaded by the palace king if food yucks!. *Joke aside.
Here is another analogy about my intention of posting genuine content in my blog.
In the palance dinner, you are the invited guests and VIPs, while Google, the search engine king, will hunger for newly written and descriptive content.
Does tantalizingly delicious food arouse your appetite? Same goes to written content for Google, ever desire for mouthwatering delicacy content.
I shall list my action-items here to complete before my next post scheduled next week.
- Re-organizing the content, and reshuffling of tags and categories. Some are redundant.
- Sharing a draft of roadmap on upcoming posts for next 6 months.
- Put up the About.me page to briefly describe this blog. Short and succinct.
- Optimize the loading speed of the web pages. Technical for webmaster, who is also me.
One last note, be free to comment if you have opinions or improvements on my blog.
