From one sister to another – may kismet be with you both.
And this is why everyone should have a meh moment.
Bloggers-block, having no inspiration, real-life distractions or just a simple and utter case of ‘the meh’…I think everyone who has a blog, knows all those feelings.
I, too, experience it every now and then. And it is not because I cannot find places to explore, pics to take and what not…no no, I am doing all that, but simply: cannot get myself to sit and craft a proper blogpost.

A powerful message to all the daughters, sisters and mothers of the world. Well said, One Gentleman. Well said.
Thank you Daniel, Diana, Vernon and Jason, blueinsomniak for being my handful of early adopters… when I had almost no content and I didn’t know what I was doing.

Here’s an excerpt:
A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 1,400 times in 2014. If it were a cable car, it would take about 23 trips to carry that many people.
(Daniel’s Notes: And this is where the first year of “The Oddity Writer” ends. 53 posts and 1408 total views, and more than 50 followers across all my platforms.
I know that may not seem like much, but I am amazed that “The Oddity Writer” was able to reach this point, and I am honored to be a part of such a creative, amazing and welcoming community. I owe what success I have to you, and I am so thankful that you found this little blog worth reading.
I would like to thank these people as 2014 closes. Kelzbelzphotography for…

This is why ‘sexual preference’ is a misnomer. It signifies a choice. I didn’t specifically choose to be Asian. I just am.
