Countdown to 1st Anniversary Part 3: Looking Back

Anniversary countdown would not be complete without taking you down memory lane and look back on how did it go on the year that was…

  • November 29, 2011
    – when I posted my first blog entry.
  • December 2012
    – is filled of exciting and unforgettable entries.  I realized that the best time to start a blog  is just before the holiday season because there was so much exciting topics to feature.  Page views started to pick up by this month and I became more than enthusiastic to continue posting.
  • January 2012
    – is a month full of festivals.  The posts started to be more colorful and full of adventure.
  • February 2012
    It ranked PR1 after 71 days of blogging and merely 20 posts.  The love month is also the month when I started posting concerts, shows and events.  There is a complete compilation of the very popular 3rd Philippine International Pyromusical Competition here.  This month recorded the most number of  blog entries = 21!  But it’s kinda tough to maintain a daily post since I am managing three active blogs.
  • March 2012
    – My birthday month and as I’ve mentioned in  Part 1, this is the month that I actually promoted this blog.  Followers and blogger friends started to increase.
  • April 2012
    – This is a very productive month.  I started receiving several offers for blog deals and opportunities and the likes.
     This is also a colorful month because I featured a lot of summer related posts and exciting places like  churches.
  • May 2012
    – We are on high spirit here.  From PR1 it soared to PR2 in 157 days!  I also host my first ever giveaway on this month sponsored by a sunglasses company. The blog traffic continued to shoot up.
  • June 2012
    – The traffic continued to pick up and more blogging opportunities came.  I started applying for adverts and they are all approved. However, I intentionally did not submit this blog for Google Adsense because of the negative experiences by fellow bloggers.  Some of them were rejected, some accounts were suspended and worst, some were banned.  Gone are the days that you just need to create a blog and apply for GA.
  • July 2012
    – More blogging opportunities came including sponsorship for giveaways.  However, I somehow feel that the niche or purpose of this blog is getting mixed up.  I intentionally put limits on the “commercialization” of this site, thus the creation of The Lucky Blog where I am channeling the other blog deal offers.
  • August and September 2012
    – is the month with the lowest number of blog posts.  Yours truly needs to be in hiatus.
  • October 2012
    – Hiatus mode is over.  I tried to work on much as I can and thrive to get back on the regular posting.
  • November 2012 – Hello World! It’s our anniversary month!
We’re on with the countdown, later peeps!

  6. It was before your birthday when we started visiting each other's blogs and exchaging comments etc. Happy to know the author behind this awesome blog! You've gone a long way already compared to us na nauna pang mag-anniv hehe but you deserve it and we all have different purpose and interests din naman. God bless Balut Manila!

    1. Pinapa-iyak mo na naman ako Gracie sa walking down memory lane (seriously). I am happier knowing you sister.

      THANK you for that comment. But it is actually not all about the hits. It is about being happy to what you're doing, added bonus na lang yung hits. And you're absolutely right, iba iba yan. basta masaya ka sa ginagawa mo yun ang mahalaga.

      My sincerest THANKS talaga sa unfailing support...
