2021 With the Blog Chatter
How would I remember BlogChatter 2021?

I joined BlogChatter in April this year. Sooner than later, I participated in the ebook carnival, a month-long activity that ended on 5 May.
I was cradling the idea of book publishing having a skeletal understanding of its processes and was excited to read the wads of information on the topic flooding through dedicated posts and WhatsApps.
The group discussion exposed me to a unique experience that is not an exaggeration. No question from anyone was left untended by virtual strangers. Tension was climbing, knots were tightening, sleep was departing, I felt like finding a home on a cosy distant island on a tight expedition.
On a personal reward point, I felt younger being among the youngsters. My memories are still green--how would I grade it now other than giving five over five.:)
Unfortunately, I couldn't reach the height of publishing my story with others--still not published. The reasons I gave in a post, published on BlogChatter. Keeping hopes that I shall do it in a short while.
The second undertaking was BlogChatter Half Marathon from first to fifteen August--the theme-About You. Among other things, I enjoyed refreshing my academic research topics in Maths learning--Social Constructivism, a philosophy of classroom pedagogy in Maths. The purpose and joy in processing it and reaching the target line were terrific.
I have been in the field of blogging since 2006. The excellent tagline I remember then was--publish without an editor. Unfortunately, the fanfare and the craving for freedom never gained any results. Getting a groove into the new stuff wasn't easy--I can't find fault with anyone. Still, I kept blogging to give a bare survival for a creative push from the inside.
What I observed in the openings of BlogChatter were the purpose and the method of blogging. However, I couldn't take full advantage of the BlogChatter 2021. Keeping hopes high and looking forward to 2022.

I can't conclude mentioning the Covid-19 pandemic so determined to push us, humans, to all our limits. Omicron got detected in the South African lab. Scientists scrutinise the clinical data to analyse the extension of its threat--it is transmitting fast but not killing the infected like its predecessors.
There are rumours --not coming from the scientific community-- it's the sign that intruder is slowly showing the signs of losing the edge. Praying for the silver line in the sky.
And I use this time to appreciate the managers steering the BlogChatter wheels and the entire blogging community for all your plannings, direction and companionship.
Wishing you all a progressive 2020.
