1-blogyear old.

Before availing of Blogspot's free service, I was using myspace's blog feature. I started February 2004. The entries were sporadic there; 2-3 updates a month. Or sometimes none at all.

I still remember the day I created this realm: It was more or less 3pm. I was multi-tasking: packing for a 2-day Galera beach trip with pep friends and chatting with a stateside friend. She said she has a blogspot home. Visited it. I was impressed. I immediately registered and proceeded to post a 2-liner entry.

And the rest is history.

Yes, my blog is now a year old.

How time flies.

"I did not know what to say, my mouth had no way with names,
my eyes were blind, and something started in my soul,
fever or forgotten wings, and I made my own way,
deciphering that fire, and I wrote the first faint line, faint
without substance, pure nonsense, pure wisdom of someone who knows nothing,
and suddenly I saw the heavens unfastened and open, planet, palpitating planations,
shadow perforated, riddled with arrows, fire and flowers, the winding night, the universe."

Pablo Neruda certainly knows his shit.

@ahia mell: Yepyepyep! 1 whole year. Never thought this space of mine on the web would last for this long. Did not think I would be able to sustain it. But then again... here I am. Still.

Thanks to you! :D

happy anniv to your blog rosey! keep on writing, you have a talent - makes the readers feel as if they have witnessed the event themselves or as if they were with you when you were experiencing something.

@jill: Jusko. Isang taon na kong nagbababad sa pagba-blog. Hehe.

Writing is therapy. Writing is therapy. Writing is therapy.



@tanda: hey hey! Musta? You moved to multiply, eh? Great site, really. And thanks!

@anne: Thanks for your comment *blush* Heh. Really, thanks. I think I write that way because I'm scared to lose a memory of an event. Lam mo yun? Lahat gusto mo, pag binasa mo, you can picture it in your mind, reliving that particular moment. Ganun.

Sheesh. Got carried away there. Haha. Thanks!
