hi, i’m sj
I don’t know whether it was on purpose or simply accident but, nevertheless, I thank you for landing on my blog, Opinionated Duck. Feel free to refer to me as OpD or, even, SJ. (I value Internet safety, hence the pseudonyms.)
Back in 2012 when everything had a gradient overlay, Opinionated Duck was set up with a purpose: to share my opinions on life and issues that I come in contact with. Since then, it has grown to be so much more than that. It is my creative outlet
Most bloggers have a niche. Let’s start off by saying that I am not “most bloggers”. I have passions in creative writing and literature, design and illustration, business and media, among just some of my interests. This blog does not fit into a category for it is more of an ongoing stream of thoughts. I blog about whatever I am particularly engrossed in at that particular time.
I don’t blog for the popularity or income – because, I don’t make any – but instead I blog because it’s just what I do. Throughout my blogging experience, I have grown so much as a person and learnt so much – and, as far as I am concerned, that education and personal development is invaluable.
A Little Bit About Me
For a writer, I find writing these “about” pages far too difficult because I am yet to truly discover who I am myself. Also, the very idea of believing that others are interested in learning about yourself seems very self-obsessed. Nevertheless, I know that I enjoy a witty or interesting “about” section from time to time, hence I have attempted one here.
Disclaimer: This “about” section will not be “witty” nor will it be “interesting”. Brace yourself.
I’m a Sherlockian, a Harry Potter geek, a lover of all things geeky, I’m obsessed with ducks, I’m in love with Peter Pan, I am a pluviophile (a lover of rain), I despise Comic Sans and once again, I’m a Sherlockian!
You Actually Read This Far?
If you’ve read this far, I must not be as boring as I seem. No, in all seriousness, I commend you. It was an awfully long introduction, even I am one to admit. Despite this, feel free to browse through my posts and interact in my comments. Sharing my posts would be terribly kind of you also, should you wish to. Of course, I’ll return the favour if you ask it of me.
