I’ve been blogging since May 2006. On 31 July 2006, I took a short break from my blogspot blog to experiment here at wordpress.com. I went back to blogger after a month. By then, they had rolled out blogger beta but, while blogging over there, I was still fiddling over here with this blog. Guess I couldn’t get it off my system. Then in Nov’06, I decided to give my wordpress blog another go. I’m still here.
“Pseudonymity describes a state of disguised identity resulting from the use of a pseudonym or pen name” (wikipedia entry). Using a pseudonym doesn’t mean I do it out of fear. Instead, one of the uses of a pseudonym is to direct & focus the attention of readers to the posts in this blog. And not on who the blogger might be; what are his/her pet peeves; what colour undergarments does he/she use; what’s his/her political or sexual orientation…blah blah blah!!
I was born and raised in Singapore. Lived here all my life. I live where 80-90% of Singaporeans do – in an HDB flat like the ones in this picture.
I do not hold any degrees or honours nor am I a scholar, expert, elite, etc, etc. But I love to read though. Alot. My diet is made up of non-fiction, eg. current affairs; politics; social issues; race & religion, etc. And I like to observe. See, hear and experience what’s going on around me. I’m just one of the many ordinary Singaporeans whose daily lives is a constant struggle to make ends meet.
Now, there wouldn’t be any point of calling my blog Pseudonymity if i go further and tell you more about myself, would it.
I used to sign-off (display name) my posts/comments as article19 but on the 4th of July 2007, I decided to just stick to Pseudonymity. Reason is simple: I’m generally known or referred to in the blogosphere as Pseudonymity and not article19. I didn’t want to confuse readers with too many names. Other then that, I’m still the same person.
