On GMA 7’s Mel & Joey this Sunday

Note: If you are a first time visitor of this blog and want to know more about the Mel & Joey Episode on Blogging, please read this: Welcome Notes to Visitors from Mel & Joey Talk Show.

We wrapped up the longest interview I ever had last night, just before 10PM. The interview, which lasted about 2 hours, was for a feature on Mel & Joey about blogging as a career or an alternative source of income. I’m sure the final results will not be any longer than a couple of minutes when it’s aired so I’m curious which takes made it to the final cut.

Mel & Joey


The last time I had cameramen visiting my place for an interview was for ABS CBN’s coverage of the new Apple Macbook launch (and why it’s so blogging-friendly).

This one is a little more thorough as they also asked me to tour them around the house, show them stuff (esp. the gadgets) and take an hour or so of footage. So, if you’d happen to see that segment, I’ll tell you offhand that’s not what my pad usually looks like — it’s always messy. They also want me to spill the beans, esp. on the revenue part, so I just point them to the recent poll we just had the other week.

Btw, If my voice sound a bit weird, that’s because I’m still a bit ill with a clogged nose.

Update: Looks like J. Angelo is also in it.

Abe is the founder and Editor-in-Chief of YugaTech. You Can follow him on Twitter @abeolandres.

    Hi Abe,

    Hope you could record the show and post it online. I won’t be around to watch Mel and Jay this Saturday. Come to think of it, I don’t ever watch TV shows. Just DVDs and youtube. Haha!

  13. AJ says:

    somebody capture that segment and store it in perpetuity in youtube. :D

  14. L.A says:

    Your a STAR! Abe!!! Yehey!!!

  15. Jomark says:

    Just need to see it.

  16. beatburn says:

    It’s another significant contribution to the cause of pinoy blogging.

    Will definitely watch the show. Even if Joey can be somewhat obnoxious.

    I’m a Vic Sotto fan. hehehe.


  17. yuga says:

    Thanks guys! Will try and record it pero I know GMANews.tv publishes their TV shows online too.

  18. we always watch M&J every sunday. i won’t miss it for sure unless a blackout happens… hope not.

  19. beeps says:

  20. beeps says:

  21. Rob says:

    yep! I’ll try to watch Mel and jay although i really dont watch their show. hehe.

  22. The next celebrity .. Mr. Yuga ! Go Yuga! Congrats!

  23. I thought it will be aired last night but it was not. Was it moved or it’s really not scheduled for last night?

  24. yuga says:

    I didn’t wait for the show. Thanks for the feedback, I will ask them what happened.

  25. They ran out of time. The blogging episode will probably be aired in August 2007 na.

  26. yuga says:

    Yup, their researcher texted me and told me it has been moved to August.

    Sorry for the wait, guys.

  27. ivy says:

  28. jehzlau says:

    from rags to riches na talaga! wohOOOoooooo!! astigGG!

  29. joseph says:

    Just saw Mel and Joey a few minutes ago. Gandang raket.

  30. Rex says:

    I just saw the show. Just some basic info for those who have no idea about blogging. Nothing new. I guess they edited out the details. 2 hours? Whew..

    It’s nice to know though how much some of us bloggers are earning.. Hmmm, our peso might spike further if millions of Filipinos get on the Adsense program!

  31. xel says:

    i really want to know about blogging, i really want to try if i have the edge on it.. hehe.

  32. vbignacio says:

    well ive seen the last part of feature, and i think the interviewed blogger should have mentioned a monthly income starting from $1 upwards. $300 or more per month for bloggers with a basic knowledge of SEO maybe. but for newbies, i doubt they could reach $5 a month with their blogs. im sure many Filipinos will start blogging, but for how long before they get disappointed and quit?

  33. yuga says:

    Yup, I believe that part where I also said people start out from zero was omitted altogether and that not all bloggers can earn such. The $300 and up are for established probloggers based on survey and interviews.

  34. mysterious says:

    hey yuga,just wanted to nkow kung papano ba magstart ng career na yan?at san ba pwedeng mag-sign up?email mo nman me oh..please:)thanks!

  35. nice says:

    nasa youtube na ba yang interview na yan???

  36. Carmela Javier says:

    how will i get information regarding that blog? that will help in earning? im interested. please help me.

    RE: Your show dated November 11, 2007.

    Pls give us the full contact number or details where we can buy the electronic gadget for cancer patients.

    My friend is a cancer patient and he wants to try this gadget.

    Thank youy very much.

  39. Bless says:

    Good day!!! I took a chance to email your show because of your episode aired last November 11 with regards to the “Electric Therapy” that you featured. Our family has a history of high blood and asthma, and as I watched your show, I was very impressed with the testimony of the patient who tried and is still using the said device. May I please inquire as to where I might buy and how much it would cost me if it were to shipped here in Baguio City? Does it have a warranty?

    Thank you very much and I am hoping for a quick reply to my queries.
    I am from Baguio City, and i watch most of the shows of GMA7 especially topics which feature health related issues.
