Last month was my 8th year anniversary of blogging. My first posting was on July 7, 2008 advertising my beach house in Boac, Marinduque, Chateau Du Mer and the island of Marinduque as a tourist spot in the Philippines (see attached).
Today, I have written more than 1,700 postings and had over 3 million views. If you are my blog followers(30) you know that I write mostly from personal experiences. I have written on a variety of topics except politics and religion. I blog because I love writing as well as exercise my aging brain and also to inform. I have attempted quitting twice during this eight year of writing. However, because of a number of comments from readers that they enjoyed reading my blogs (simple writing and direct to a point), I decided to continue blogging. I try to write at least three posts every week. Incidentally, besides my blogs(ten), I have also a writing account on HubPages.com
Currently, I am averaging about 200 readers per day. Please continue reading my blogs and will appreciate any comments, positive or negative.
Planning to Retire Soon!
If you are planning to retire in the Philippines soon, I suggest you visit several excellent websites on pro's and cons of retiring in the Philippines. However if you want to retire in the provinces, where life is simple, standard of living cheaper, less traffic congestion and pollution, availability of fresh seafood and vegetables compared to the big cities, my island province is the place for you! If this is your first time in my site, welcome. Please do not forget to read the latest national and international news in the right side bar of this blog. Some of the photos and videos on this site, I do not own. However, I have no intention on the infringement of your copyrights.
