Build it and they will come

Posted by

After 100 posts, more than 3000 visits, exactly 6 months of blogging, and tons of fun doing it, I would like to give thanks where thanks are due.

First to my wife and family who provides me constant inspiration to write (and live), and for fully supporting me on this endeavor (endeavor?? ok, ok, it’s just a hobby). In addition, I thank my wife for furnishing me many of the pictures I post (except those I got from the internet). Thank you also for allowing me and tolerating me to hog the computer most of the time.

Second, I am indebted to my former classmate in high school and a good friend, Jenny, who motivated and got me started in writing and blogging. Thank you for your continued encouragement.  Even though I am not ready yet for a career change, for I have not made any single cent yet from blogging (I don’t expect I will), I surely am loving this. To my friend who have made a living in writing: to be a woman and be able to express your opinion is entitlement, but to get paid for expressing your opinion, that is bliss.

Most of all, to you readers who keep on visiting and reading my blogs. When I started blogging, I did it for my own amusement. However, later on I realized that if I can also entertain others, or better yet, inspire or provoke other people to think and see things from a different perspective, then it will be more worthwhile doing this. Thank you for making me a part of your everyday read. It brings me great joy to create and maintain this blog site, and having you all come and visit. As it was said in the film Field of Dreams (1989 movie with Kevin Costner, which was filmed in Iowa), “Build it and they will come”.


  1. “Write it and they will read.”

    Thank you for trusting me to read your first pieces, that touched and inspired me the moment I went through them. I’m glad you decided to blog, so that you can touch and inspire others too. Keep sharing please, we look forward to more of your wit and wisdom! 🙂

  2. I’ve enjoyed reading your posts. Congratulations on this milestone and also on your writings for the Manila Standard. Still, making sick people better is not that shabby either.

  3. Pinoy Transplant it feels good to have you in Blog Sphere. Enjoyed reading your blogs on health, patients and all things about Pinoy..More power and keep blogging…Congrats and on to the next blogging anniversary! cheers joel of 365gps and 18th Moon

  4. Pinoy Transplant, thanks again for mentioning me as one of the people who nudged you to write and publish them in this blog. I was just passing along the encouragement given to me – I myself was inspired too, by none other than the previous commenter above, joel of 365GPS and 18th Moon ( who encouraged me to take Journalism at UP. And to think we were all at PCA one time or another. Is that a coincidence, or was it meant to be? 🙂
