After a year-long hiatus from writing stuff on the internet through a personal blog, I’m reviving my WordPress site. I tried managing a more personalized site (www.patchaure.com), but the administrative backend demands and my previous projects prevented me from properly managing it. I’m planning to recover some posts I wrote when I was a part-time lecturer for DLSU and post it here again.
To “re-launch” my site, which I think is now leaner and more cost-friendly (no more hosting fees yey!), I’m unveiling my personal logo… or emblem? Or symbol?
This was inspired by one of my favorite diagrams – the Venn Diagram. For DLSU RVR College of Business students, this inspiration is familiar as the college’s logo also features a more minimalist Venn Diagram. The diagram for me represents many things that I wanted to reconcile: idealism and being practical; mind and heart; what is and what could be; money and mission.
For readers of Dan Brown’s Angels and Demons, you may be familiar with the ambigram. This logo aspires to be a good ambigram. (If you’re not familiar, better do a quick Google Search and I kid you not, you will be fascinated!)
And with this, I’m back. I can’t promise to constantly write at a regular rate, nor can I offer a consistent niche which according to blog gurus is essential to running a good blog. Right now, I find advertising on my site counterproductive (aside from default WordPress.com ads) because I don’t have big traffic and I don’t have “keywords” for it.
Instead, by going back to the basics, I’ll be focused more on what blogging is supposed to be all about: writing.
Hence, I offer miniscule yet evolving personal bits in this infinitely growing world of bytes. To the few who will stumble upon the words I write, consider yourself (un)lucky to get a front row seat of my thoughts and ideas of what is and what could be – expressed through words, and sometimes (while trying hard!) through music and songs.
The words have summoned me, and here I am again.
