Blogging away from rags to riches?

A couple of days a go, I got a phone call and text message from a journalist from Iloilo who wanted to interview me for his research study on Guimaras. Apparently, he found my blog in his search and was intrigued by that little description I placed on the header image of my blog (“blogging his way from rags to riches“).

Ok, that was really meant to catch some attention and quite a few people have emailed me about it. It’s a double entrende and I’d like to clarify a few points about that. First, I am not rich (yet). :D Second, what I meant about blogging away from rags to riches was that (1) blogging could become a source of income for the regular Filipino (which is what I am preaching here in my blog) and (2) I practically started my entrepreneurial ventures thru blogging (see plogHost.com).

Anyway, I sent the journalist a short autobiography of sorts (way back when I was a kid growing up in Guimaras to my college days in Ateneo and my online ventures). I hope my story was interesting enough. :D

On a related topic, Marc of Macalua.com just published my long overdue inteview about my netrepreneurial escapades.

And then, there’s the great big theme redesign of PinoyTechBlog, which was tirelessly customized by Jolo. :)
