Mathe told me in one of her emails that it’s good that I’m “back from outer space”. She’s probably right. It took a while before I even got into the rhythm to update this blog (more than a month). My last blogging hiatus between May-June was so far the longest in my recollection. I have to admit that at some point I wanted to really say goodbye to blogging and start a new life without thinking about my online tasks but here I am again. Old habits really die hard, dudes.
There. I will approve your comments (if they are courteous, non-malicious, non-spammy and relevant). You really don’t have to be impatient when an author does not approve your comment/s. Why would any individual like the commenter I mentioned freak out if I did not intentionally approve his comment? Well, I should have if he was patient enough to wait for my approval during my return. This is my site and only I have the right to approve or delete comments at will. At present, the comment count stands at 459 and increasing. I’m not sure how many of these are spams or legit. Tomorrow I will be able to determine the number but for now, legit commenters need to wait for a while before seeing their comments here.
Also, what happened during my 1 month+ break taught me a lot of things (online and offline). It started when I got sick and was so afraid that I contracted the Influenza A(H1N1) virus on May 4. To sum it all here are what happened during the longest vacation online:
- May 4-14: Got Sick
- May 15-June 7: Moved In to a New and Bigger Apartment
- May 16-June 5: Purchased 4 More Web Hosting Plans and Migrated 8 Websites (also purchased a truckload of headaches and a factory of heartaches along with these purchases)
- May 30-31: Got Sick Again
- June 1-9: Scouted for a Lot for Sale in Ilocos Norte
- June 10: Hammered My Finger in an Attempt to Fix the Kitchen. Ouch!
If I were to blog all things that happened from May 4 up to present, I will be able to come up with 200 articles minimum covering a wide variety of topics from “how to avoid contracting the flu virus“, “managing VPS accounts in Goddady and InMotionHosting“, up to “how not to hammer your finger when fixing your home“. If you’re interested in any of these topics, come back here in a few days and I’ll start discussing them one by one based on firsthand account.
Lastly, I’d like to thank Eric, Kathy, Dave and Jen (most especially) for constantly updating The Reporter, Kokey Gadgets and Technlogy Talks during my absence. Some of these sites are presently “suffering” due to technical reasons but they should have suffered more without these guys who did not get tired of listening to my voice during long lectures and instructions. I just wish they won’t ask money before the end of this month. Hehehe!
