Dear Yous, me has started a new blog … Pitch It Right. No No, wait … don’t worry … I am not giving up on PakiMom here. We got a good thing going … I’d never dessert you. *tear. Since I started posting stuff from others, my readership has gone up … getting a lot more hits. And people expect pearls of wisdom every time I open my mouth. And you know how that’s so not gonna happen. There are days when I want to vent. When I am down in the dumps and the world looks like an open sewer and I hate it and I want to kill everyone in it. With me going fancy shmancy with Google videos and biz plan competitions … people are intrigued. “There is a strike in town .. let’s see what PakiMom thinks of it”. “Oh no, rise in petrol prices … wonder what PakiMom has to say on this”. DUH!
Now you my lovelies know me. You get me. You leave me the hell alone and just come here quietly, silently … read my vents or just give me pretty little upward rising stat-graphs … and quietly support me. *tear (again). We are like Eeyore and Pooh – forever together.
But then … there is no denying the fact I have this geeky side that loves everything about my “flashing lights” peeps. As Rhett Butler famously said about Scarlett O’Hara (and I quote for my love for startups), “It’s like opium in my veins”. I just can’t stop no matter how hard I try. So I have decided … I am going to separate the fancy stuff from the real stuff. Geeky-goo goes onto PIR and the fabulosity that’s moi stays here where its most appreciated and where its cosy and homely.
But that does not mean I don’t want you going over yonder and telling me what you think. I trust and cherish your opinion. Does it look good? Do you like the latest post there from Hind Hobeika? Do you want to write for PIR? Want me to feature someone? LMK.
Update: PIR is dead.
