Blogs to swim into on a hot, humid day
Due to my foray into Entrecard and PhotoHunt, money-making ventures like SponsoredReviews, Project Wonderful and bux.to, plus the rudiments of my day job at the university, I have been remiss in visiting the blogs I've subscribed to in Bloglines. If memory serves me write, I last read their entries during the Christmas holiday season. Shame on me, I know!
And so it was a source of immense joy and no surprise really that each of my favorite bloggers have posted quite a number of entries. They were the perfect remedy to soothe my sore soul, today that I played truant.
Alex has began his countdown to their graduation from the Philippine Military Academy. If from his blog posts alone, the Filipino people can rest assured that the newer breed of soldiers have a good head on their shoulders and a matching heart dedicated to the nation.
Nina is remaining true to her UP upbringing, proven by her insightful entries with regard to the latest political issues hogging the headlines.
Ding also places his two-cents into the political currents but his own foray into photography is what's on top of his blogging consciousness as of late.
Aryo and Carlo are both enjoying the jetset life, with the former spending time in Japan, while the latter has been exploring the Visayas islands. Awaiting your photos and posts, guys!
Benj is still (happily?) enduring life in medical school, with occasional sojourn into the world of debate and food.
And last, but not the least, a very, very good buddy LC is still churning out blog posts ranging from the profound to the petty, each with his own stamp of wit, wistfulness, and wisdom. His blog is still peppered with original artwork- of the visual and written variants. I'm glad that his legion of fans still come in droves, each of which I know he has built genuine friendships with.
And as he grows a year older today and for all days of his life, may his mind remain alert, his eyes keen, his ears piqued, his tongue patient, his heart compassionate, his hands steady, his knees sturdy, his feet quick. May creative juices never run dry, mental blocks last for mere milliseconds, blank pages be filled in a jiffy, his tolerance for other people's imperfections be equal to if not greater than tolerance for his own =]
Thank God for bloggers like you. You guys remind me why I blog in the first place. Seriously.
