Q: Why do you write on blog?
Writing is one of my hobbies. And I always feel happy when anybody reads my writings. why blog? because blog is like my own public magazine. I shouldn't ask anyone's permission to post my writings. Moreover, every human on the world may read it. The last one, because it's simple and free!
Q: You often write posts in english. why?
Saya tidak bermaksud sok atau songong atau tidak cinta bahasa indonesia atau yang lain-lain lho. TIDAK SAMA SEKALI. Tapi yah, dengan menggunakan bahasa inggris, akan lebih banyak orang yang membaca blog ini (Maksudnya tidak sebatas orang indonesia saja). Walaupun sejauh ini teman-teman blogger saya yang berasal dari luar negri memang belum sampai ratusan (baru belasan blogger sih).
Selain itu, saya sering menulis post dalam bahasa inggris karena saya suka pelajaran bahasa inggris dari SD, dan ingin menguasainya untuk suatu tujuan (masih rahasia). Jadi, dengan banyak2 menulis dalam bahasa inggris (walaupun kadang-kadang berantakan) saya berharap bahasa inggris saya semakin bagus. begitu...
Q: Where do you live?
In a beautiful place at Padang, Sumatera Barat, Indonesia
Q: Why do you love owl?
I don't know. One day in my childhood, I saw the owl character in Winnie The Pooh series and in Disney's comiks. And since that moment, I like it freakin much. When I was in junior high school age, I randomly used "Owl" word in my friendster ID [Owl_or_Aul@haha.id] just because Owl / Awl / Aul sounds similar. Then, one of my classmate, Anne, used to call me owl. And until now many friends of mine often call me owl. And then I thought, "Why don't I pick owl as my image?". That's why you see so many owl pics in this blog. Silly, huh? :p

Q: How do you manage your blog?
First, I'm not a full time blogger. I have many daily activities in the real life. So, I could not update this blog everyday. I try as often as possible. I use Otoru-kun (my laptop) for blogging. sometimes on ICT in my campus, sometimes in a place-with-wifi, sometimes in the office, sometimes in internet cafe, etc.
About the appearance, I try to design it by my self. I buy dotcom domain at www.Aulhowler.com at November 2015. I try to write all post originally by my hand. No copy paste. except some picture which I couldn't take by my self (I put the credit for source, of course).
Q: How could you still active for a long time on your blog?
I'm not active on my blog sometimes (example: when I have examinations/tests, when I'm spending holiday somewhere, etc). But I know, some years in blogging (since September 2008) and still active is not easy. You know, many bloggers deleted their blogs because they were bored. And I tried my best --seriously-- to keep in touch and not to delete my blog because of the same reason. I hope I will never stop blogging. yay! #Spirit
