This is my 100th post. yihaa!
it was October 17, 2006 (almost nine months ago) when i had my first post, and it was October 19 when i got the first comment on my third post. the first few weeks i was just blog-testing, and i really do not have a grip on what i am doing, i only wanted to return to writing and i felt i needed some practice for me to get back in shape (as if, hehe) and then, you can see me posting about the Philippine Idol and Amazing Race 10 (and even britney spears hehe) and by that time i am not sure where my blogging is going or if my purpose of going back to writing is being achieved by those not really impressive posts. oh well...
but it's a different thing when the New Year comes, enter the 2nd World Pyro Olympics.
my interest in blogging reached a new high when the realization came that i can learn a lot from fellow bloggers, especially about photography, and that i can post all the photographs i've taken without anyone complaining (so far, wala pa namang nagrereklamo hehehe). my first take on fireworks i thought was good, and then i saw some bloggers' shots, ewww, i was ashamed of even posting mine! hehehe. i searched the net on how to improve my works, and it gave me a LOT of how/what-to-do's. wow. and compared with the previously-unoriented shots, the results of my next two days of shooting were more than satisfactory. see them here and here.
february was the turning point. ahem. i posted about the pba, some pictures, the World Light Expo, more pictures and it was also the time that i started ranting and ranting and began liking what i am doing (hmm, reklamador?). and more importantly, i visited more blogs regularly and actually leave a comment on their posts. it was sngl's that i regularly visit (somehow i can relate to his rantings hehe) and then there was verns who's very articulate and very funny at the same time, then there were abaniko (ang galing na photographer nito), the pride of catanduanes belle, leah (straight from canada), the super duper busy but macau-bound hazel, the sapatero by day and ninja by night mon at nataranta na ako sa biglang pagpick-up ng traffic! i really like what i am seeing, i like the interactions, the comments were all inspiring! and before i knew it, nadagdagan na ng nadagdagan ang blogfriends ko. :)
i didn't realize that it's going to be this fun, i continue posting more rantings, more pictures, more travels, more pictures and get this, meeting some blogfriends is even more exciting. and oh, more blogfriends on my blogroll: the superwriter toe, the law school-bound rhodora, super mom sexy mom, the scientist from japan (hai) kathy, fellow lea salonga fan gina, jhoanne (who's on hiatus), stay at home mom (at me utang pa kong post sa kanya hehe) lady cess, fellow flickrista koolitz, book lover lazarus, the new kuwait resident fingertalks, the manilenya in canada melai, the transformer fanatic and photographer watson, the pride of davao tina, kababayan and movie reviewer manny, a toronto resident ey, backpacker and fellow caviteño owen, photographers/travellers ferdz and lino, great teacher bugsybee, UP jogger atticus, cebu bai intsik, photojournalist sidney and some celebrities/probloggers/great writers/awesome photographers from anton to yuga, from jim paredes to noemi, from bo sanchez to howie severino and jove francisco, from lori to elber to markku, from former officemate ate dins and even to pinoy rickey. :)
whew! andami nun!
not so long ago, i thought my blogging would be over, good thing, i was wrong. and look, i am now on my 100th!
