In celebration of Distilling Thoughts' 5th birthday, I decided to buy a domain. Basically only the URL was changed, making it more personal but the contents are the same. It's still the same distillery of thoughts thought there's a part of me wanting to improve it further. How I wish I know more about web-design and that time will allow me to write more.
I have other ideas for my blog's birthday. I was planning to give away 5 Distilling Thoughts shirts (see above photo, the black shirts) but I was a bit disappointed with the way the shirts were printed. I have a different idea in mind but that wasn't translated into the actual product. There's no one to blame here really. I looked for the cheapest printing shop, of course, why would I expect too much. I still wear it though and better luck next time. Hopefully on its 6th birthday.
Aside from the shirt thing, I wanted to do a self-portrait for my blogsary. This idea has been playing on my mind since January but I realized it was too difficult to achieve it on my own. Then I dialed 911 and asked for help. It was my good friend Kid Perez who picked-up the phone. Of course he agreed to do it and should he have said no, I'll still go to his place. Thanks man!
Well, 5 years of blogging is a feat I guess. Since this is more of a personal blog, I am assured that I can have at least one entry per month. A significant entry or not. A travel. A musing. A rant. As long as my 1-blog-per-month quota is satisfied, I am more than happy. I always have at least one since March 2007. The total number of blogs per year dramatically decreases though.
What's next for totomai.net aka distilling thoughts? Nothing much I guess. It will be the same but I plan to make it more interesting. Depending on how one define interestingness. I am not talking about flickr when I used that term.
Lastly, Allow me to say THANK YOU for being a part of my blogging world. I will still continue to blog. to shoot. to distill thoughts. I won't get bored sharing a part of my world to you even you are already bored with it.
