new year 2012


Hello Everyone,
its 6 days after new year and my apologies for being away from the blogging scene for quite awhile as I had tons of things to do.

Nonetheless since its the new year and Chinese New Year is also coming soon, I do have 3 exciting announcements:

1). Blogger’s Collaboration

Just last month, I chanced upon Luke’s Blog and in one of his post, he mentioned about starting out a local Singapore blogger’s network/group where we can have monthly activities/gatherings and also where bloggers can gather to defend our blogging rights. Well, I got in touch with him and we are planning to meet up soon to discuss about the possibilities and opportunities to start up our very own local blogger’s network. As a matter of fact, there are a couple of groups which was setup for bloggers before but those which we had come across are either too serious in topic, or are inactive for our liking. What we are seeking here is to form a network/group where we can really be active in terms of having events and activities such as fieldtrips, outings, and etc and as a group, contribute to certain topics such as travel, politics, food and beverage and etc. which may be of interest to the public. Most of the time, being bloggers ourselves, we blog at the comforts of our home and more often than not, we sometimes may feel that we are alone in the world of blogging. As a result, Luke and I planned for this group to be one where we can really be united in our thoughts and be able to most importantly, share with one another and hangout with one another.

Although our plans are still in the pipeline and we are still cracking our brains to come up with an even firmer plans for the group, if you are a blogger who owns a blog and you are interested to be one of the founding pioneers of a potential revolutionary project that would perhaps change the local blogging scene, please do let me know by dropping me an email at melvinlee@awinsomelife.org
