Home, at last.

After over 17,000 profile views, 6,000 plurks, 18,000 responses, 1,500 friends and 1,600 fans… I’m pretty much back where I have started… at Plurk.

It was there where I met people with whom I’m still connected to to-date. It was there where I used to extend the reach of my blog. It was there, where I gained motivation and inspiration for all my work. And yes, it was there, where I learned to love and enjoy the feeling of being loved. It was there too, where I acted like a jerk and a complete a**hole.

Returning Home.

Plurk has always been a happy community for me to turn to, a place to get away from all the serious stuff. Plurk always rescued me from high levels of stress and depression and has always been a resource of funny quotes and cool people. That hasn’t changed a bit.

I’m happy that I decided to become more active on Plurk again. I’ve made new connections and friendship as early as my first 10 hours back on Plurk. It feels so strange yet so familiar roaming around the microblogging tool, nonetheless, I know that I am home.

Learned to love and be loved.

The biggest lesson that Plurk taught me was about love. You could throw the worst criticism at me and I would still accept it for what I’ve done to some people on Plurk. I feel terrible remembering those romantic relationship I had with a few Plurkers throughout my 1342 days on the site. Yet those have also been some of the most wonderful days I’ve had in my entire life. No place else have I felt being so loved and needed by someone but on Plurk. It was a long distance relationship, but I never felt being too far away from that person. But sabi ko nga, tanga tanga ko kasi at gago, it took a tragic end.

If you really love someone. Go for it. Take the chance while you have it!

Seeing Familiar Faces…

Some people have changed, some people are still the same. Others moved on to other social networks while some remain pretty active on Plurk. It’s a joy to see familiar names and faces on Plurk!

I wrote couple of times about this Social Network on other blogs, and I was pretty much spot on then, Plurk is gonna evolve into something big and it truly has. It may not seem as big as other people give it credit, but I challenge you to immerse yourself with the huge, vast and hyperactive communities that Plurk has to offer.

I am home at last; and I am going to build myself up from here.

Come and be my friend on Plurk now.

Sub Sites are ready :)

The sub sides that I have been blabbering about update after update are ready to be written on very soon, and that soon might already be tomorrow. There are just a few issues that I am facing in starting this blogs off. Like for example, how to have them listed within the Pinoy Teens Blog without being index by Google to avoid duplicated content problems, how to drive traffic to them without any physical effort needed (like Entrecards or so). And lastly, how often I will be able to update the blogs and what content to write on them.

But really, this is the least that I should be concerned about. My girl friend is supposed to be coming over today, just like she has promised to do so yesterday and the other day but failed. Will she keep me hanging one more time? Looks like this love isn’t really that lovely or is it really just a coincidence that both of us are a bit busy lately?

Speaking about being busy I pretty well know one who is, and that is the theme designer of Elegant Themes who has rolled out a second batch of updates for his themes including a new addition to his gallery which will be the theme that one of the three new sub sites of mine will be using. It’s Basic, his latest theme. Though, I’m really looking forward to a new batch of updates coming from Nick in the next couple of days for the other themes that are yet to be redesigned and for the theme that he has announced back in 2008 to be released soon.

I’m right now a bit confused on what to do that’s why I decided to post a blog article on my personal blog to address a few issues here and let go of my weary feeling. Although I may not really consider this a s something weary, but somehow it is, for the fact that Brian Gardner has been one of my favorite theme designers, which isn’t the case anymore. It looks like the Revolution Two Series has gone premium and the present themes there are not available for download anymore, I’ve got a few bloggers discussing that issue on Plurk and we’ve eventually found a download link for most of the available themes there.

Some consider it as Piracy, others say that it’s okay to share those themes that come from Revolution Two and I’m one of them who agrees that we are still able to share those themes since they have been published under the GPL.

That would be all that is concerning me at this very moment, I’ll be keeping you updated about other things as soon as I feel it’s needed to be written down.
