JaypeeOnline Recap: The Year That Was 2007
I was having second thoughts whether or not I would do a year ender post or recap. Since you are now reading this, it means that I decided to go ahead and do it. This is JaypeeOnline’s recap for 2007.
2007 was a great year for me and my blog. I would call it the coming of age for JaypeeOnline. For what started out as my personal blog, has now turned into a more focused blog. I”ve never imagined my blog to reach this far but I’m very proud of it. I’d also like to take this opportunity to thank my family, friends and loyal readers because without them, all of this won’t be possible. You guys are the driving force, my inspiration. Thank you so much!
Here’s a short list of the achievements, events and other stuff for JaypeeOnline in 2007:
- JaypeeOnline was featured in Manila Bulletin’s Blog-O-Rama segment. Thanks to Ms. Annalyn Jusay for the opportunity.
- Finalist in the 2007 Philippine Blog Awards – Technology Category. I still don’t know who nominated me, but whoever you are thank you very much!
- Finally got my own paid hosting and moved JaypeeOnline over to Dreamhost.
- This was also the year JaypeeOnline joined b5media. Gotcha! That was my April Fool’s post.
- Made my first paid review or sponsored post.
- Shifted focus from personal blog to Blogging News and Reviews.
- Accomplished my goal of reaching/exceeding 100 RSS feed readers and almost doubled it. If you haven’t subscribed to my RSS feed yet, now is the best time to do it. Subscribe now!
- Got my first officially “bought by blogging” gadget, the Canon Powershot S3 IS.
- I was finally able to create and start my weekly feature which I named the Weekend Roundup.
- Sponsored the Blogger’s Kapihan 2.0: BlogEd 101. My first time to sponsor such an event and most certainly won’t be my last.
- Got my second “bought by blogging” gadget, the Compaq Presario C714NR.
- Made it to Basapa’s list of 2007’s Top Pinoy ProBloggers.
Aside from all these stuff, what made this year a blast was getting to meet and make new friends from the blogosphere. And that folks, is the year that was 2007 for JaypeeOnline.
A prosperous and Happy New Year to everyone! God bless!
