JaypeeOnline Manila Bulletin Blog-O-Rama

Today is a great day for me and my blog. We got featured in the Blog-O-Rama section of the Manila Bulletin, March 5th issue.

Last Wednesday, February 28th, as I was checking my Yahoo inbox, I was surprised to see an email from Annalyn, much to say an email with the subject “Request for Interview”. The moment I read the subject line, I knew what it was about. Honestly, I was overjoyed! I’ve been dreaming of this day. Even though I felt like my blog was not yet worthy, I’ve been hoping that my blog would be featured in Blog-O-Rama but I wasn’t expecting it to be this soon.

I haven’t seen the print version yet because as you know I’m here in California. I’ve asked my parents back in the Philippines to get copies of today’s paper. I’m not sure and correct me if I’m wrong but I think the print version is more complete than the online version.

I’d like to thank Annalyn Jusay of Manila Bulletin (inspite of the short notice. hehe) for giving me the opportunity to be interviewed and have JaypeeOnline featured in both the print and online version of the Manila Bulletin.

Here’s the link for the offline version of the article – Jaypee’s Online, Since 2000.

    @jun – Ei, thanks! You know what, as I visited your blog the other day I remembered about that 30-day experiment and I said to myself, Uh-oh I forgot to do it and I hope Jun doesn't ask me about it. And here you are asking me. Hehe

    I'll try to implement this experiment as soon as I can and I'll let you know, okay? Thanks for reminding me and for dropping by! :D

  • benj, March 9, 2007 @ 2:15 AM

    Can I ask a personal question?

    How many sexual favors do I need to grant to be featured in a broadsheet?
