Finding faults! was the first blog I wrote as a reaction to Juana Change's video satirically "belittling President Aquino's private life."
The Book of Matthew (Matthew 7:1-5) in the Bible is crystal clear why we shouldn't find other's faults, that's the foundation of my premise of support.
One hundred fifty-six articles so far had been written by me and posted them here till RT reaches its first anniversary in this month of February 2012.
As of this writing, 29,537 visitors registered in RandomThought's counter.
At its inception, RandomThoughts' started with an Alexa rank of 15,367,892 till it improved to 2,264,171. And eventually it got its own domain through an invaluable help from C5 Ghosty Writery, a fellow blogger worldwide in December 14,2011. Now its present Alexa Rank is 612,537 with pagerank 1 in Google, which it regains after losing it when RT got its own independent domain. Thus, it took one month and 22 days to retake its pagerank of 1 on February 6, 2012.
In eight months and 12 days of existence, it was recognized as the Best Blog in Lifestyle in 2011, Visayas Leg by the Philippines Blogs Award, Inc. PBA President Juned Sonido personally handed the award to me on November 12, 2011 at Silay City Museum, Negros Occidental PH.
Also my newly created blog, Tumandok received also award as Best Blog in Arts and Culture award at the said awarding rites.
RandomThoughts! and Tumandok were able to excel other blogger-nominees in 80% content and 20% design and usability criteria for 2011 blog award.
Why I blog?
It is my mission to blog: "It is in blogging that I share my thoughts, my experiences, my ups and downs and even my dreams for others to learn to influence or change their way of life for the better."
In so doing, I'm hoping that my fellow bloggers may join me in this noble task for it is in sharing that we care. It is in caring that we love. And it is in loving that we are united.
How RandomThoughts! came to being?
My desire to write blog was challenged when Negros Bloggers President H. James Toga added me to Negros Bloggers closed group in Facebook. I became acquainted with the members of NB. And I sensed my belongingness with this group of students, government employees, freelance writers, businessmen, realtors, legal luminaries, news reports who belong to the core group of NB as pioneers.
I followed up their blogs and I was challenged. So I said to myself: "I was defied to do my best. But of course, not to compete with them for they'd different fields of expertise." Doing my best of my own is the answer.
And the rest was a history.
Therefore, I wanted to share globally my blog. I submitted it to the major search engines for indexing. And it was very challenging and it took a lot of patience to wait for the results. Anyway, the results was already aforementioned.
Tess Torrecampo-Chancellor, as one of the FBW admin, added me to their open group in Facebook, Filipino Bloggers Worldwide. There I gained more than a hundred friends who we're very cooperative, helpful. And I learned a lot from their unselfish tutorial and Search Engine Optimization skills and experiences.
Thank you to all of you FBW members, and also to the silent or unique readers and followers of this blog. The success of this blog is faithfully dedicated to all of you.
And most of all, I thank you the Lord, the Almighty who has given me the talent of writing. Of course, my wife and my family who are my avid readers and followers too are gratefully acknowledged for their moral and spiritual support.
