I have been thinking about retiring from blogging for a very long time. I guess this is the right time to do so. Yes, I do want to quit blogging though not entirely. What I mean is I wish to stop covering for events for some reasons.
The major issue is I just don't have the time. These few years we're seeing lots of language teachers busy attending courses. These days you don't just sit and listen passively when you're attending one, you're expected to bring tonnes of workloads back to school. In fact, some programmes are meant to be long-term and they take time to carry out too. We already have a lot of things to mind at school, and yet we still have to do these extra work. We have to sacrifice our weekends, leisure time, holidays and sleeps just to get things done. This eventually led me to think hard about my priority.
Since blogging is just a pastime, so people are always assuming I could promote something without having to pay for the service. Of course it's not all about money when it comes to blogging. A lot of our bloggers are people with day jobs or university students. If they are willing to take time out of their busy schedules to promote your event, then you should at least show some appreciation when they put up informative contents on the internet to increase your popularity. Blog entries are similar to advertisements and we all know they usually involve cost.
So far the events I attended under Sarawak Bloggers Society had rewarded me with some goodie bags, only a few invitations got me walking away feeling disgruntled. We don't just write, blogging involves ideas, transportation, equipments, editing, electricity and so on. Although it's just a hobby, but it takes lots of efforts and time to produce an interesting blog post.
From now on my blog will be personal and about photography. If you need coverage for your event or to promote your products, please visit Sarawak Bloggers' official website for more information at https://sarawakbloggers.com/ .
