Tools of the trade

I have this brilliant idea about setting up a new blog while in the car on the way home from my parents’ house in Tanjung Tualang.

My new blog would be about the tools of the writing/reporting “trade”. The idea came from two blog posts that I read over the Chinese New Year holidays about improving your writing and editing skills. My recent Sony recorder purchase also gave me an idea about some of the “tools” that I could review along the way.

This blog would be a good way to celebrate my 10th year as a reporter — officially this April. What better way to do that than to document some of the tips and tricks that I have learned in the last decade?

While I’m excited about it, I’m also a bit reluctant to open “yet another blog”. Do I really NEED another blog? Can’t I just write those posts here and tag them appropriately for easy reference?

Obviously, I have to think this through. The idea is not even a day old, so I could have a change of heart tomorrow for all you know.

But I would really like to commemorate my decade in journalism with my own “social responsibility” project.

Maybe this year I will have my non-work related project to brag about in my personal mid-year, year-end review as an accomplishment.
