ABOUT 2 weeks ago, one of my loyal fans wrote me an email, reminding me of the first anniversary of this blog. He is rightit's been a year since I posted my first article on 14 October 2007. He suggested that I do something to mark the occasion. Amongst others, he suggested a new look for this blog; some sort of competition and the likes.
I have been busy with work, Rotary activities, and preparing for the Borneo International Marathon (BIM). Although the BIM is now over, I will still continue my training as I will be running in Penang and Singapore. Maybe I will also run the the GE30 in January next year. Apart from that, I also have theSun Motor Hunt 2008 (02 November) on my calendar. There is therefore hardly any time left to organize a competition in this blog.
In December last year, I did the December Virtual Hunt; and saw the number of visitors to my blog surged to over 1,000 a day. Unfortunately, not even 5% of those visitors participated in that hunt. I suppose many were merely watching from the sidelines, and waiting for the answers and explanations.
Well, there is now a twist in theSun Motor Hunt 2008. The Clerk-of-Course inducted me to their Hall of Fame, in spite of my objection. Apparently the rationale of the promotion to the master list was due to the fact that I have clerked hunts before. Anyway, as the result of that promotion, I will probably opt out of theSun Hunt again this year as this will allow my other team mates to proceed with their plan to hunt in the Open Category.
Maybe this is a good news for my fans, because perhaps I will now find a bit of time to organize a virtual hunt in this blog after all. But I doubt that I can do it immediately. I will need to start going around to take some pictures and set some questions etc. I'm afraid I won't be able to do all those this weekend as I will be flying to KL to do the Mizuno Wave Run.
Sooner or later I will try to find the time to work on a virtual hunt. This time I will think of a prize and I will also factor in some sort of time element into the competition. Very ambitious plan and much more to do. Since time will play a role in it, I will publish a notification at least a few days before the hunt starts.
I want to take this opportunity to thank all my loyal readers. I hope to continue getting your support for a long time to come!
