I started blogging during the time when Angelfire.com (1999) was the hippest place on the net to build a free website. During this time, I blogged about random things from my teenlife and used the web as an avenue to publish my now defunct teen poetry. I used to cut and paste html codes from other sites to re-create the look I want for my own.
Then when I reached high-school, I moved to pre-Yahoo.com Geocities.com where I built another website called “EDGED-OUT.” It basically had the same theme as my first website only then, I was blogging more deep emo stuff. (Ahh. Highschool life.) In college, I moved to Multiply (before it became an online-Divisoria) and expressed myself more elaborately through various essays and opinion pieces to compliment my writing-gig at my school publication. My friends and I also started a group blog called “Mendiola: Where Lives Intertwine” to collate our sappyness and pre-adult sentiments.
All of those are now inactive. Somewhere in between growing-up and having a real job, I lost the drive to blog and maintain my online presence. Now, I am back. Back with a vision and now more equipped than ever. Coupled with my passion for my profession (marketing, sales) and my inner-geekiness (web, mobile, tech) I am again bravely journeying this new Blogosphere landscape.
Join me in my vision and engage in my mission. This is a ride we will go through together.
I ENVISION A Better Philippines who uses technology and the web for nation-building and gaining global competitiveness.
I ENVISION a Philippine marketing industry who is abreast with the latest technologies and web tools and using them in the most efficient manner. A rich combination of the natural Filipino creativity and the latest in new media.
This blog is my mission.
