I’ve promised so much in the last 2 years. I’ve planned so many things in the last two years. I’ve failed in almost everything I took charge of…

2012 is going to be the biggest year yet for Pinoy Teens and my colleagues. It’s the year in which we hope to achieve beyond our expectations, and beyond anything that Pinoy Teens has ever reached before. Something inside me believes that 2012 is going to be a great year for me and for my blogging life. I hope it beholds truth.

Of course, there are other things away from the blogging world that will play a huge part in my 2012; things that are perhaps going to change the course of my life forever. Now, before this year ends, I’ve promised myself to delete all games that I have on my Mac and diligently followed my goodwill.

I’m pretty much left empty handed, with no means of entertainment aside from movies taken from YIFI. No games to entertain me, no FIFA, no Sims… but the whole blogging world to rediscover out there.

Restarting with Pinoy Teens New Media

Ambitious me has come up with a great plan again. A plan that I hope that I can fulfill. I want people around me to start their own blogs, I want them to realize how powerful of a tool blogging can be to share information, educate other people and entertain one another. While some see blogging as a dying art of independent journalism, I see it growing ever so strong in the recent years. It’s not going away anytime soon; so why not hop on to the blogging bandwagon?

Blogging seemed so fun back then…

I was in no need of games to keep my mood up high, that’s because blogging was a lot of fun for me back then. I loved playing with words, coming up with a decent post and have people appreciate (or sometimes, criticize) it. I’m far from that attitude today. I’m scared whenever I head into any of my various blogs’ WordPress dashboard… scared to fail, to displease my audience and to get labeled by people out there. You could say that I’m pretty much the opposite of who and what I used to be 2-3 years ago when I started.

It’s going to be a long and dwindling road, no doubt about that… but what can I do? What can anyone do about it? You just have to push yourself to write and write and write and that’s exactly what I’m going to do. It’ll look more like a chore and dirty work at the beginning, but I know sooner or later I find myself again.

Blogging is a way of life.

Blogging isn’t just a verb applied to people who create and write blogs, blogging becomes part of your way of life. That’s where it has become a hit and miss for me. Sometimes I feel like I’m a blogger, sometimes I uncertain about it.

I ain’t young and promising no more…

I am 20 years old now. I’m not the 16 year young boy who seemed so promising and full of potential. I’ve missed my chance to breakthrough in my earlier years but it doesn’t mean that I can’t make it at all.

Come, journey with me as I’m trying to find my place in this vast growing blogosphere.
