agreed to do a weekly segment
on Busan e-FM's show Inside Out Busan
, which came to be known as "Open Mike in Busan", it was due to a confluence of reasons, but even though I was invited onto the station because of this blog, none of my reasons for agreeing to appear on the radio were connected with it.
I could have promoted this blog as part of the show, and I expect that many other bloggers would have seized that opportunity, but as every company that has ever tried to employ me will testify, I am not most other people. I write because I can, I write for myself, and that other people have come to follow my blog has been the source of endless soul searching for me, because while I like to write, my motivation does not require a readership, and frankly sometimes ebbs because of it.
