Taking over The Blog Herald

Today is the official day that we take on The Blog Herald. News of the sale have been spreading in the last 24 hours since it was first announced on the blog.

Now that we can publicly disclose the new ownership, I’d like to share some of my thoughts when the task of heading The Blog Herald was offered to me a couple of weeks ago. My thoughts were a mix of both excitement and fear.

  • Excited because I have been entrusted in managing such a high-profile blog, yet I fear that people might think I don’t deserve the role. Will have to prove them wrong if I must.
  • Excited by the fact that this new task is a huge challenge for me and, with such, comes the responsibility that tags along with it. Ahh, the Spiderman complex.
  • I am proud that this new capacity at the helm of The Blog Herald may lift the spirits of fellow Filipino bloggers and hopefully inspire more on the growth of the blogging industry. My travels across Asia and the blogging/podcasting workshops that I’ve done gave me a different perspective from what it is in the western blogosphere.

To assist me with this new role is fellow problogger J Angelo Racoma. We have huge plans for The Blog Herald and he’s really instrumental why I accepted the assignment. The new owners of The Blog Herald have given me a whole lotta trust in running the site and steering it to the right direction. With the help of my able colleague and our current pool of bloggers at TBH (and newer ones as well), I hope to accomplish something tangible and concrete in the coming months — and yes, not disappoint the loyal readers of The Blog Herald.
