Blogging

Before going to my main topic... I now remember what is my #10 in my No Way list. Another big no-no for me is

10. Buy an imitation – even if it’s expensive, I’ll save up to buy the original one. It would be a great embarrassment if someone will notice that you’re wearing/using an imitation. And honestly, I really feel good if I’m using an original branded item.

I was tagged by Carey on 5 things that happened to me because of blogging. Well, here’s my list on why I like to blog:

1. I’ve learned html. Not really totally learned a lot but bits and pieces, putting links, changing your font into a bold one. Stuff like that. But I cannot say I’m an expert especially after what happened to my sidebar. Thanks to iskoo, now it’s fixed again. (I still can’t believe you’ve thought of that. Hahaha)

2. My writing improved. So just imagine how it was before. Hahaha. Well, I think it improved. Some people had even comment that it did improve. Basta what I know is that I’m not good in writing, I always have low marks in my theme compositions. And I get a chance to practice my english. Aminadong barok ako. Hehehe

3. I am now getting addicted with Multiply. And through the blogs and pictures there and also in Friendster, Blogspot, Wordpress or wherever (but mostly in Multiply), I get to know my friends more. I get updated with their lives even if I don’t see them often. And I gain new friends! Also, it’s very interesting to read stories of other people. I’m not tsismosa coz I don’t tell others about your stories, I’m just curious. hehe

4. I love to travel! But due to budget constraint, I only get to some places. And it’s still a long dream for me to travel the world. But through the blogs, I get to know a lot about places and the people. Reading about unknown places there that only the locals know is really a good thing. I feel like if I get the chance to visit the place, I’ll feel at home already coz of what I read.

5. I get to analyze things too much. especially with what's happening in my life. I don't know, i believe blogging has something to do with it.

The tag says to list only 5. But I'll add another one. Daming naisip. Hahaha. And for me, this is the most important...

6. Everybody has a story to tell, the problem is not everyone is interested to hear it. I have stories to tell also and honestly sometimes I’m shy to say it because it might bore the other person. Thru blogging, I get to share my story. And it’s just up to you guys if you’ll read it or not. And it’s really touching to learn that there are some friends (that i don't expect) who really read my blog, like Kim, Ate France and Kuya Marvin. In a way it’s flattering, coz I didn’t expect it. Thanks guys. And I told you I’ll mention your names here in my blog.

So there. Now you know why I'm getting hooked to blogging. Hehehe. I won't tag anyone this time.

thanks tin-tin, finally you did it kahit busy girl ka. :)
yes everyone has a story to tell, and blogging is a venue for expressing ourselves, whether people agree and appreciate our ideas or not, what matters is being understood.

tin-tin said...

That's true...but some are more interesting than others. hehe. pero your stories are interesting, otherwise you wouldn't have so many visitors/commenters. ;)

skulgirltrx said...

hi Tin! =) sorry ngayon lang nakabalik!

apir tayo sis! i thought awhile back that i'm old for blogging when i discovered it two years ago. i love to write in diaries bata pa ko. i can say that i'm not much of a talker, but when i write i get to say my piece anything under the sun. it really opened doors for me too like learning HTML, Adobe photoshop, etc. and meeting people online not only locally but internationally also...^_^

add me as a contact sa multiply (skulgirltrx) din ha, adik din ako e hehehe...keep on blogging! =)

BW said...

"5. I get to analyze things too much. especially with what's happening in my life. "

That's great when you spend time dissecting issues that affect your life! Your blogs are an honest expression of you and there's nothing wrong with that :) You're doing well - keep it up girl !

tin-tin said...

skulgirltrx: i think nobody is too old for blogging. unlike sa friendster. hehe. learning field ang blog din noh? :)

bw: kaconscious lang mag-inggles. hahaha. at minsan kahiya isulat ang insights, baka mapahiya. pero thanks po :)

racky said...

uy, napasyal na ako doon sa multiply mo at nakita ko na rin si dive master heheheh!

pareho tayo sa una, pero iyong template ko ngayon di ko maintindihan
Indonesian kc iyong gumawa, nalilito pa ako sa pag-edit ;)

snglguy said...

Hay nako, you can write in tagalog, or taglish if you like. It's your blog after all. And you're doing just great. :-)

rHo said...

malaki talaga ang naitutulong ng blogging... mas marami tayong natutunan dahil sa iba-iba mukha ng tao!! basta masaya noh?!

nag-improve ka nga sa pagsusulat!! cheeerrrsss for that!

tin-tin said...

racky: hindi pa yun yung dive master. wala pa yung pictures nya. hehehe. indonesian? you mean pati template mo, ginawang indonesian? pero ganda sya ngayon ha :)

snglguy: wow! thank you! honor for me, sa inyo galing e. hehe. thanks tito :)

rho: yup, masaya. at kakaibang lessons pa. thanks po :)

Rey said...

you just have too many things in your mind and I guess this gives you another avenue to have an outlet for it. Andami mo pang naging fans.

chase said...

hello tin-tin. I am thankful for blogging since i met someone like you. Oh i am so with you on buying imitation stuff. Nothing beats the original

RennyBA said...

I so much agree with you; quality always pays in the end!
Btw; Sorry I haven't been around for a while, but now I'm here to wish you a wonderful end to your week:-)

tin-tin said...

rey: whatever! hehe ;p

chase: awww... same here. thank you really for always visiting my blog. and advance happy birthday :)

renny: it's okay. happy weekend to you too :)

sexy mom said...

me, too, i will not buy imitation. not that i am snobbish, but it gives me gratification. i'd better have less in "reals' than lots of "fakes". that goes for friendship as well.

and yes, blogging has made a whole lot of difference. it's an experience, and friends in the making.

cruise said...

ako din mahilig sa branded, kasi naman qwuality at durability, kahit na makita nila na di ako nagpapalit at least matibay naman, hihihi

Jhed said...

Woot! No to piracy!

Ansarap mag-blog noh? It's better than sex. LOOOL. :P
