This is a typical virtual life of a blogger like me. Being “wired” for almost seven years now, I started to grasp the soul of web logs just after I discovered WordPress. (Thanks to Michael T.) just early this year. Even then, I was running an ad-full Friendster account. I must say, the ads are such an eye sore even though they are done with taste and creativity and so I decided to create something dainty and classy.
Some of my friends asked me, “Why blog?” Well, a blog proves to be an excellent and creative means of scribbling thoughts that can not be said aloud, and the ideas that nobody wants to care about in your own stomping ground. It also hones any hidden writing prowess. Most of all, it scrawls things of extreme oddness into something artistic and dramatic with a major tinge of anonymity. A comment, be it an appreciation or a criticism, from people outside your circle boost encouragement and confidence. Be forewarned though, it can sometimes be a “brag” site.
Here are some of the web logs that I (once in a while) read. These are created by Filipinas with great talents and interesting lives.
