First Try Out

Finally, one of the most liberating moments in the life of an Internet surfer. A blog to call your own. So, what do we have in store for ourselves. Nothing! Just ordinary observations on the misery and the joy that surround our local environment.

This blog is called San Juan Gossip Mills Outlet for the simple reason that I have resided in San Juan for a third of my life now and all we hear from friends and acquaintances are facts wrapped in the edible nature of gossip. It is an outlet for people who are so tired of their dreary existence not to mention people who would like to write but do not have the sufficient anonymity to post a blurb or two.

So, with this initial blog, I would ask all of you to blog anything under the sun. Whether you are a Bush hater or a Kerry lover (same difference!) or a conservative needing air to breathe from the cesspool of extreme secular liberalism or a Filipino who just wants GMA to succeed and for Gen. Garcia to rot in Muntinglupa, feel free to blog. It's a free country until the military decides to take over.

Good luck. Be brave to post. Carpe diem

Thanks, Desune. I leave the erotica to you and to your future blog. Thanks for the compliment. I chos the more manly template to temper my feminist inclinations. He he he. You can create your own blog. I promise you I will equally visit your blog if you do decide to create one.

Hi Edwin, welcome to the world of blogging! It is interesting to note your being naturally drawn to the Internet. It has been my passion since college.

I will definitely look forward to the gossip on this column, who knows could lead to a good story or two.

if you're looking for another activity, i think you'll make a good counselor for a teen advice hotline (or whatever it's called). us young ones will certainly benefit from the knowledge of someone who's been around for quite time...

nice post. but please don't dare to discuss supreme court cases here, otherwise, we will be bored to visit your site.

do you have plans of running as a government official in san juan? just asking. this might be a good start for your campaign. you have the whole cybeclass as your supporter, unless someone will send me a private message that they/he/she/"it" disagree. =)

Great first article sir, and ang laki talaga ng bahay niyo sa san juan nung nakita namin ng gf ko. As in mansion, next time sir dun naman tayu magclass at mga magbonding. Well for me panay comics lang talaga ilalagay ko sa blog ko, hehehe, yun pangarap ko kasing trabaho sa ibang bansa, comic book writer. Hopefully sa awa ng Diyos.

just for the record: is this your first blog? in that case, that puts all of us on equal footing in terms of blogging. is that liberating news or what? did you really want to put up a blog or just because there's this final project that we all have to go through? by the way, can you post a comment without having your own blog? can i invite my friends (fans? hahaha) to post as well. forgive me but out of excitement, i blurted out that i have a blog in the making and they would also like to comment (not that i forced them). boy abunda este marge

Just for the record too, this is my first honest to goodness blog. I have been aware of blogs for the longest time but when I saw the messages in our yahoogroup about the unequal contribution of each student, I figured lets have a blog in order to level the playing field.

And yes, by all means, invite your friends to your blog and to mine and to the rest of your classmates. At least, they will be thankful that you made them part of the blogging revolution. Power to the blogs!

Sorry, I failed to answer one of your questions. Yes, you can post a comment without having your own blog. I that case, you will be posted as anonymous, unless (1) you create your own blog or; (2) you can put your name at the end of your comment.

but in order to let others with no blogs post in your blog, you would have to change your settings and allow anonymous readers to post. Otherwise, they will not be allowed. Just go through each of the settings function and make the appropriate changes.

Jhennie, sorry, I accidentally deleted your comment. Was just going through the comments when I clicked the garbage can. Delete pala yon! Now, if I can only delete your name...hmm....

sir, i already changed the settings in my blog as you suggested. by the way, remember the john travolta movie you were asking before in class? where travolta played a lawyer in a case involving the death of children due to contaminated water? its 'a civil action' pala. di lang ko mapakali because i saw this film too. =) marge

You seemed to have it all. Now let me teach you the old world joy of smoking a good local cigar, Don Juan Orquijo,ranked 88 in the top 100 cigar of the world. (Not bad considering there are a thousand or so cigars)

Excellent with Shiraz-Cabernet!
