Firstly let me thank Madam Rekha Mongar for the initiative of the wonderful Q & A on Blogging and Blogger’s Tag. It is indeed first of its kind among Bhutanese bloggers. It facilitates to understand more about the fellow Bhutanese bloggers which is blooming day by day. The genuine reasons and the idea behind their blog and interest will let know the effect in one with writing. Thank you senior and fabulous Bhutanese bloggers for driving me to write little I can.
Q: Why did you start blogging in the first place? And what’s the story behind your blog title?
I never knew about blogging in the first place. In the second place I am not good in writing but I like to scribble my thoughts. In the third place I could find information everywhere. It is readily available on websites, news papers, from radio, and verbal interaction with friends and so on… I was reading Bhutan Times news paper once upon a time when I was in first year. There was an interesting article authored by the present prime minister. Since then I noted his website id and was regular visitor and reader on his blog. Then I thought why I can’t I have my own blog? I was inspired by his Excellency. I have my own thoughts and feelings. The thoughts and feelings that I feel will be worth sharing though it depends on the readers. This is the story behind for coming up with the idea of blogging.
I was shaped to better man by my teachers. They corrected me in every wrong that I did. They told me where to go and what to choose in life. I had nothing to present them as a gift, be it in teachers’ day or during farewell dinner except that I study hard and make them proud. I had my Geography teacher when I was in tenth standard. His name was Cholden Khandu. He was a cool guy as human being and good leader for me as teacher. He was in no doubt my best teacher. As a token of thank to him, the name of my blog – Sangay Cholden’s Random was born. It is indeed my dedication platform to all my teachers.
Q: How long have you been blogging? Where are you based?
It is almost three years that I was into blogging. I started posting from October 2010 and till date I have posted 174 posts which are tagged under different levels.
I am base in College of Science of Technology, Phuntsholing currently. I am not sure where I will be after my graduation and I contemplate that I got to be in internet access area.
Q: How do you schedule your blog post? Daily or weekly? Or as and when inspiration strikes you?
I don’t have any particular time that is solely dedicated and scheduled for to update and post on my blog. As and when philosophical and poetic inspiration strikes I write and post. In an average I could post five to six posts in a month.
Q: Does your family and friends know about your blog?
Yes. My friends know about my blog. Certainly I feel sometimes very proud to hear my friends call me to say about my article. It motivates me to write more and share with them. The more I write the more I learn about myself. This is the magic of writing.
