The bookworm lawyer-blogger

Today I had a long meeting at my customer premise. On the way back to my office, I stopped at a gas station and grabbed the Malay Mail, an afternoon newspaper.Flip, flip and flip, then this title triggered me to read on until the pump attendance approached me and said, “encik, pump sudah berhenti”…ermm in english, “sir, the pump has stopped”.

He, heh, heh……the title, “Enter the bookworm lawyer-blogger”. Meet Elviza Michele Kamal, “a reluctant lawyer, an aspiring columnist, a mediocre musician and a contented mother and wife” – and yes, an active blogger, according to Gabey Goh, a reporter with the blogger-friendly Malay Mail.

Here is the logo or trademark of Elviza’s “Write Away” blog.

What really interest me is how she explained on how she divide her time being a lawyer, a mother, a wife and an active blogger. I did mention that in blogging you need to have passion and certain qualities. She said it well and she added that the hits to her blog are currently at 129,070 with 2,064 comments. This is an awesome stats! For record, she first started blogging on Feb 04, 2007.

Here you could see how she explains it very precisely and certainly blogging is a way to be your own self either for personal passion or for business writing.

Enjoy reading is her passion, blogging is her passion too. She mentioned that “I know I am not a millionaire bloggers like some of them (ahem!) but this is enough to make me smile the whole day! Here’s the URL of the article.”

Get her reviews on books at her blog or get in touch with her online. > > > > >

Do you have to be a good writer to write a blog ?

    u don’t have to be a good writer to blog. importantly, u shld know how to put yr points down properly so that readers will understand it.

    though also important, we need not worry abt those english grammars thingy such as past tense, adjectives, noun as long as we understood what a blogger is trying to tell.
