Blog resurrection

Posted by rastamad on February 4, 2006

IT has taken a week-long trip to Kuala Lumpur for this blog to be resuscitated from its coma-like state in the blogosphere.

I’m here in the Malaysian capital since August 22 to attend a new media training hosted by the Southeast Asian Center for Electronic Media (SEACeM). Today’s session is about WordPress. Most of my fellow Southeast Asian participants are new to the concept of a blog and are being introduced to the open-source blogging software. They are taught how to create a personal blog on WordPress.com.

The exercise was therefore an opportunity for me to tweak around with my own blog, which used to be hosted on another free blog hosting service until I decided to move to WordPress, frustrated by the unmanageable avalanche of spam comments that invaded my posts on the old blog.

The heavy toll of maintaining the PCIJ blog has really been detrimental to having a separate personal blog, although I believe it also provides me with a perfect excuse for being true to my blog title. 🙂 But I guess, from hereon, this blog will have to shed some of its patented idleness. So, do welcome me back!
