I do not know how to make an About page. Do I tell you my whole name, akin to what preschoolers do on the first day of class (“Hello, my name is Marie Fe Ojacastro. People call me Mafe. When I grow up, I want to be a writer.”)? Do I have to go into exact, excruciating detail on how I ended up behind a desk, crunching numbers, bullying/getting bullied by two overgrown minions? Or do I simply list random things about me, counting off from “1) I can eat cheese all day and still never get tired of it” all the way to “100) I believe in a God that that has blessed me in mind-blowing proportions, it is simply imperative to be a blessing to others“?
I do not know how to make an About page. I did not bother to learn, because frankly, I do not understand its motive in the first place. The essence of a personal blog is to tell the world who I am all about. If I can condense that in one measly page, it defeats the purpose of setting this whole thing up. I might as well just compose an epitaph. At least then, I can ensure that future generations will know that once upon a time, there was a girl named Mafe – dreamer, thinker, doer – who walked on the soils of the earth and wreaked havoc from the 90th year of the Philippine Independence.
I do not know how to make an About page, so I made it easier for you
so you cannot fault me for being inconsiderate. Let the little boxes on top show you the way:
- Musings – long-winded prose I subjected myself to write every other day
- Snippets – pictures of today, probably because I procrastinated and needed more time to compose long-winded prose
- Ramblings – random bursts of thought bubbles; too incorrigible to organize into long-winded prose
- Features – people, places, things, <insert another plural noun here> worth my words, time, and effort to tell the world about
I do not know how to make an About page, so I am unsure how to end this, either. Do I have to thank you for not Ctrl-W-ing when you stumbled upon this blog? Or do I have to thank the heavens for causing the accident that made you stumble upon this blog?
