One Year Of Blogging and 200th Posts

 My sister (Ms. Tessie Bermejo) receiving the award for Palipasan
for winning No. 6 Best Blog Award for PEBA 2009

One year ago today I created Palipasan and published the first post and it has been quite a journey. I didn't realize the time and effort needed for such a venture, like a little child on his first walk, blogging in the beginning is a journey without direction, and the feeling is being isolated writing in a solitary.

But as days passes by and as I continue posting my blogs, it was a wonderful sight that visitors from all over the world, sometimes from unusual places as far as Kenya in Africa and to the war-ravaged countries of Iraq and Afghanistan.

I owe Palipasan's survival to my readers and commenters whose presence served as my bloodline for reaching this far. Thank you so much for the wonderful 20,000 visits you made to Palipasan, I am humbled with the fingerprints you left while you read the pages of my site.

As I look at all that’s happened over the past 12 months and all of my posts on my popular topics, I am reminded of how appreciative I am for all of the opportunities I’ve had resulting from my blogging, and even more grateful for the people who have helped me along the way. I would not be here without the support and encouragement from a few of those very special people particularly the people behind Kablogs.

And now, as I celebrate a double festivity, my first blog anniversary and my 200th post, I pray to the Almighty to guide me and Palipasan, to help me leave heartprints. Heartprints of compassion, of understanding and love.

May Palipasan touch a lonely reader, a distressed OFW, a runaway domestic helper, or perhaps, a dear friend.

I shall continue my journey in writing blog to leave heartprints; heartprints of kindness and genuine concern; because each time you visit my blog, I felt your touch, your love touching through me.

Maraming salamat sa isang taong haplos na inyong ipinadama sa Palipasan na naging dahilan upang makapaglathala ako ng 200 poste.
