Today, April 16 is a Blog Reader Appreciation Day, an event spearheaded by Bloggers Unite, a day of tribute to our blog readers, I am taking this opportunity to say THANK YOU to all of you readers.
It was winter of January 16, 2009, when I published my first post entitled "Monster Machine", and "Palipasan" was born. On that same day, I got a comment from Mr. Kenji of Thoughtskoto, the first and single person who reads my blog, di ako makapaniwala , he introduced me to this blogging world, I found the community of Ka-Blogs.
I started this blog just to find something useful to do with my free time, I gave myself a month to see if I wanted to continue with it. Because I feel that writing blogs makes me feel that you're writing out into the darkness, and you are not sure that anyone is really listening - and this becomes a challenge. And the challenge becomes an obsession when commeters and people leaves their marks and footsteps - and I appreciate every single person who reads and contributes to Palipasan
Commenters and people who write to say thank you help me know that you are indeed out there reading. So first of all, thank you to my commenters. Getting feedback on posts helps me keep going.
To the "Mga Sumusubaybay" (the 25 "Followers") your presence provides "Life Support" to my blog - the same reason for its existence.
There are a few special people I want to thank for specific reasons:
KENJI, for his encouragement in the early days which showed me for the first time that blogging can make us friends around the world.
NJ, the first person who tagged me on "Graphology Test" and most recent are the "Neno's Award" and "Friendship Award", Engr. Sherwin Mokong Calalang for the "Uber Amazing Blog Award" and "Food For the Soul Award Blog" Moks Award, Lord CM on his "Nagbabagang Blog Award", Ron Centeno for the Neno's Award, John for Neno's Award" too, and Marlon for the "Pinoy Blogger ID" - all these tags and awards makes me feel like I was a ‘real’ blogger.
A big hug to all of you readers, yes "You Changed My Life" I am not joking when I say blogging has changed my life. The knowledge that I have gained, the connections and friendship that have been forged of consistent blogging over the past 3 months.
"Speak to one another in psalms, hymns, and songs;
sing and make music from your heart to the Lord;
giving thanks always for all things unto God"
"I thank my God upon every remembrance of you,
Always in every prayer of mine for you all making request with joy".
MARAMING SALAMAT PO!
