I found out I’m not that addicted to blogging after taking this nifty quiz. I’ve seen much higher scores from Abe or Jayvee or Aileen. 58%How Addicted to Blogging Are You? 58% is pathetic! Tsk.
Many people hate my guts, I know. But my last post on link trains was done in good faith. I did not mean to hurt anyone in the process. I read from Abe’s blog that John “Googlebomb” Chow was banned from Google. Even if you search for his name, his blog won’t show up. That’s… Continue reading My Point Exactly
For a couple of years now I’ve been looking around for talented people here in Davao who have the potential to make an impact in the blogging world.

Blogie, Marc, Kim, Ria, Jun and I met a few hours ago at Blugre MTS to discuss our upcoming Davao Blog Party to be held on Saturday, March 17, 2007. The newly-opened NetFront Coffee Shop and Internet Cafe will serve as the venue. There were a few jokes thrown here and there but I’m glad… Continue reading The Davao Blog Party #1
I had a little eyeball with other DavaoeÃ±o bloggers last night at the 51 Cafe near Victoria Plaza. It was nice to know that there’s more of us here in the city. Well, maybe just 6 more. It was my first time to meet Bloggie Robillo, Marc Javellana, Jim, Dominique, Floraine and Chris. Newly-mowed Jun… Continue reading DavaoeÃ±os Eyeball
Am I doing things right with my blog? I only took the craft (semi-)seriously last June 2006. Using that as a starting point, let’s make an assessment using Abe’s 5 Ways to Check Blog Growth: Feedburner Subscribers – Then: 0 Now: 156 (it actually went up to about 3,000 but that’s obviously whacked) Alexa Rank… Continue reading Has My Blog Grown?
