What have I been up to?

 

Some of my readers will notice that I haven’t been hubbing for a couple of weeks. I do post short comments at the Hubbers’ Hang-out to show signs of life, though. The reason is not an acute on chronic writer’s block, but a little detour to experiment with blogging. I responded to Lissie’s call to start a blog at Today.com and had been experimenting with short pieces relating to a general theme. That general theme is “Hong Kong”. The pieces there are 100 to 200 words in length. This has been a good experiment for someone who can’t find much time to write regularly. So sometimes I finish these small pieces in 20 minutes or before my wife protests that I’ve been spending hours at the computer, whichever comes first. These short pieces are lacking in depth. They are, however, still educational for me to write, in that I have to try to outline the story, color it with my own ideas, and then quickly make my point and close. Here you’d find some of my short pieces: (If you happen to drop by, do tell me what you think.)

Hi, so that is what you have been up to :)

I loved your piece on Who is a survivor. Having gone through so many health issues in the past year I felt identified with it and although I am still in bed (not for long I hope) I consider myself a survivor.

Ok, that explains why the absence of the hubs! You have not gotten back to my poetry like you said you would (or i think you said you would!) LOL I'll go over and check what you have been writing but I do hope you still find the time to write here, you know you're sorely missed! :D

Hi Princessa,

thanks for dropping by. Hope you are up and about very soon as I definitely won't have the chance to meet you in bed. LOL.

Do hope all is well with you.

Hi Cris A,

thanks for dropping by. I absolutely enjoyed following your thread at the hubber's hangout on "My real name is". Good to see you having fun around here. I'd go and read your poems and if I could leave some comments just as difficult to understand as your poems. :D

I'm so glad to know you're well and still writing. You are missed here though. I always enjoy your wit. :) I read your survivor blog, loved it, and will try to read more of them later. ;)

Thanks Beson... you are one naughty doctor and as I can see an expert in oral sex: http://hubpages.com/relationships/How-to-give-grea...

exactly what the doctor recommended for my prompt recovery LOL

Hi Pam,

thanks for dropping by. I am still trying to get the right approach to blogging but shorter articles are definitely better for my own survival.

cheers.

Hi Princessa,

you are exactly right. This kind of Platonic oral sex is freely prescribed no matter what malady is keeping you in bed.

cheers.

Holy crap, Benson! For someone who hasn't had time to be around much, you put me to shame - you are very prolific, my friend!

I will definitely make a visit to your Hong Kong blogs. We have to support our favourite Hub Doctor!

Hi Shirley,

you write 10 times as much as I do but somehow you make me feel that I'm more prolific. I like it. You can visit as often as you like. OK?

A-OK. I just read your blog about the notebook that you bought and buzzed you. That was my first buzz...wow. I didn't know I could do it.


Benson Yeung profile image

Benson Yeung 7 years ago from Hong Kong Author

Hi Shirley,

don't just buzz me. you have to tell me what I did wrong, so perhaps I can do it over and over again to annoy you.


Benson Yeung profile image

Benson Yeung 7 years ago from Hong Kong Author

Hi Shirley,

oops, I thought you buzzed me down before going to www.hongkong.today.com to read your comment. So we are still pals. OK?


Shirley Anderson profile image

Shirley Anderson 7 years ago from Ontario, Canada

Benson, my funny friend! I buzzed you up on Today. It's all good, but you can try to annoy me over and over again if it makes you happy. Might be a challenge for you, though - I'm a very tolerant person.

I'm confused, doc. The caption says, "Benson Yeung at Hong Kong Today", but that's a picture of a dog......

Things haven't changed THAT much, have they???? :-))))

Hi Pround Mum,

Oops, I must have uploaded the wrong photo. It's much better looking than it would have been though.
