When I submitted the application form, I need to write something about the blog. Other nominees would write about themselves more than 50 words long. Me? I cringe with just the thought of writing something about myself. Nay. So I ended up writing “Laman web saya mengandungi kandungan yang serious dan juga santai seperti bukti pengajaran, strategi yang saya gunakan untuk mengawal tekanan dan sebagainya” [22 words]. There you go. As you can see, the person in charge of this booklet screen captured one page from my webometrics and lo and behold, look at the title: “Anugerah Webometrics 2019: Should I?”
If you look at previous recipients (2016, 2017, 2019), they wrote extensive narrative description about themselves. There is nothing wrong with that. But in my case, I chose not to write lengthy stuff about myself.
Few of my friends asked me “What was I thinking?” when I wrote that knowing that it will appear in the booklet for this year Citra Karisma. Oh do I care! That is my initial reaction. Why should I be pretentious, right? I am what I am and who I am cannot be defined with what I wrote, have written, write and will write in any piece of paper. [This quote sounds familiar. Oh no! I sound more like my mentor, Yedullah Kazmi]
