Allow me to take this opportunity to thank you for visiting my fledgling blog these last few months. I would also like to thank all the blogs that were kind enough to promote my little corner of thoughts. This blog started out as a project to practice my writing skills and an extension of my Wikipedia Bahasa Melayu articles on issues close to my heart: feminism and Malay literature. In only a few months, Cycads has managed to gather unexpected levels of attention, support and honourable mentions from more experienced members of the blogosphere – I am indeed humbled.
For about a month I will be taking time out from the blogging community to reflect on things past and what lies ahead, and to spend quality time with family and friends, which goes without saying. I will also be busy rehearsing for a charity concert next month, in which I might re-emerge again as a solo concert pianist. But during the break, I will be around to respond to your e-mails and comments posted on Cycads.
Have a wonderful new year, my readers. Hopefully and God willing, we will witness a better year for everybody.
A belated Eid Mubarak Cycads!
Oh no…you’re disappearing again? You only just reappeared after the last long hiatus. Mashallah for whatever you can contribute while persuing a full life – and a solo concert pianist…very cool.
You’re making me feel bad, Salaam! 🙂 Yes, I am disappearing yet again, even though it pains me to neglect my baby.. :O but it really is for the best, and for my sanity.
Happy holidays and God bless!
I really believe that nourishing our other cognitive and creative outlets makes us better writers. Have a restful break.
I totally agree. Distractions are always the best cure for writer’s block!
Good luck on your endeavors and come back to us soon, enshallah! 😀
Thank you, Fatemeh! and will try to, insha-allah!
Hey there, you Superior Scribbler, you! First of all, I’m not “spamming” you; I promise! Second of all, I’d like to introduce myself: I’m Melissa B., The Scholastic Scribe, & I’m the “Original” Superior Scribbler! Third thing on my mind: I’ve been nominated for a pretty prestigious blog award; I’d greatly appreciate your vote, so if you click on over to my place, you’ll see the info. It’s an annual award from EduBlog, and I’m up for Best Individual Blog. And 4th thing on today’s agenda: I’ve got a cute “contest,” of sorts, going on at my place every Sunday. Please come by this Sunday for the Silly Sunday Sweepstakes. And, thanks for your support!
