The Ignoramus Writes

After weeks of contemplation,  I have finally mustered enough courage to create another blog.


My first blog on WordPress, themathteacheralsoreads,  failed to function based on what I originally created it for – to be a blog about my book reviews. Instead, it became a container of my rants and random thoughts about the most mundane of things – the work I do, the people I meet, the movies I have seen, and even my longing for a lost love. Simply put, it became a “chop-suey” blog as a blogger friend aptly calls it.

There was one good thing that came out of it however. It was also through this blog that I recently discovered a love for poetry and for writing compositions.

And this had become my main motivation for starting The Learned Ignoramus.

I am crossing my fingers that The Learned Ignoramus would be a threshold as I enter this new world of “serious writing” so to speak.


I am not an experienced writer nor have I formal training in it whatsoever.

Nonetheless, I will write.

Because I want to write.

  2. Hello Learned Ignoramus!

    Thanks for following my blog…

    I think you will appreciate my flair for poems…

    Its just that I write with emotions,

    Sometimes the poems are inked with tears,

    Sometimes, inked with joy…

    Nevertheless, I enjoy spontaneous spills of poetic thoughts…

    Thanks and will be happy to drop by from time to time…:)

    1. Thank you very much for dropping by Ms. Chilledhoney! I really appreciate it.

      Thank you for your very encouraging words as well. I’m technically a newbie in formal writing (both prose and poetry) so I would definitely need all the help I can get, such as inspiration coming from other excellent bloggers like you.

      Thank you very much and I’m crossing my fingers you’ll find something here that you would also enjoy.:)

      1. Wow, “excellent” is such a sweet sweet word coming from an equally excellent blogger like u…

    Specially to have heard it from somebody as good as you.
    Thank you.
