One year and counting...
This blog was created with the simplest of reasons - as a bulletin board of sorts where my friends and I could update each other on what was happening in our lives without having to do the often tedious job of exchanging emails. Before then, I was a happy kibitzer in some blogs, leaving comments here and there and generally just content with being a "lurker."
Along the way, this blog became an outlet for my rants and raves. One thing led to another, and well, after one year, here I am - a little bruised but generally wiser - but still trying to get used to the "attention."
The last 12 months have been truly exciting for me. Sure, it was also exasperating and frustrating at times, but overall, I would say it was a good year for me as a blogger. I realize that not many bloggers get noticed at such a short time (yes, I repeat - I have only been blogging for a year) and many of them certainly deserve it - so I know I should be grateful. And I am.
And so, I would like to officially thank all of you who have made visiting this blog a daily or weekly habit. I apologize for not being more diligent in updating this blog; the spirit is always willing but there are only 24 hours in a day and I only have so much energy in my body. But thanks for continuing to drop by even if it means reading the same posts every single time.
I would like to thank Manila Standard Today for the respect they give to bloggers - unlike other papers who think blogging and bloggers exist in a parallel universe- MST editors believe in the power of this new media.
And finally, I salute all bloggers out there. The great thing about bloggers is that regardless of the diversity there is a strong sense of community. Thanks guys for creating space for me.
It's been a great year. Blogging rocks!
(And now, perhaps it is time to give in to many offers to redesign this blog and to make some money! hahaha)
