I didn’t notice that it’s been a year already. I started this mapanuri blog on blog.com but a few months after that I got curious in transferring it to the more popular wordpress.com. I started a few blog posts November of 2009 and just July of last year, I started to transfer all the posts.
It’s not the original look, it’s something yellow-ish and amateur-ish back then.. hehe
A brief history. This came to the online world because of the blog conference hosted by our company. The first time I blog and I won a netbook out of it – lucky eh?.. Since then, it gave me the motivation to put up my own blog – the thing that I have been wanting to do since college. Why Mapanuri? My creative thinking is not working at that time so I just based it on how I am as a person. I am the kind of person who is keen to details (if perfectionist is the word for it, so be it.. :P) but I am not perfect, so is everyone else that’s why I don’t consider myself a perfectionist. 🙂 I just want to utter my opinions on certain things whether it be entertainment, food, political, social, financial or whatever as long as I know that I am a part of it and it concerns me. But along the way, it evolved and had some sense of direction (??). I realized my love to travel. With the motivation put on me by the travel blogs I am reading (see blogroll), I was greatly encouraged to push myself and get out of my comfort zone. January of this year, I started plotting my own travel calendar (see Travels) 🙂
Before I was planning to put up a mini-contest, just like other blogs to give thanks ( as if andaming readers… haha) aside from boosting the site’s traffic in my blog’s first year lol.. I might do it some other time. 😛 Surely, I am very much thankful to all my readers and even blog-hoppers who are spending time to type in mapanuri.wordpress.com on their browsers, search mapanuri on google and click my link on other blogs, my fb/twitter walls as well as on my Yahoo Messenger status. I appreciate it a lot.
Right now, I’m planning to transfer again and utilize/monetize my own domain which is http://jeffzapanta.com. As some of you might notice, I am not very active in writing blogs recently because I’m also working and doing other personal stuff (pamangkin-sitting on the side hehe). I’m keeping myself from multi-tasking, it gives me a headache. 🙂 But if I had that itch to write, no one can stop me. I just want to make use of my own website and blog about my interests there – the usuals.. 🙂 Been also wanting to make it a travel/photoblog because I envy those travel photographers that are really good in taking photos of such beautiful places. 🙂 Soon, I’ll make up my mind and you’ll just be suprised.. lol 😛
Again, I am just thankful that some random people here on earth took time to read and comment on every blog post I make – though some are only a repost from news and current events. I really really appreciate it! More thankful to those that I don’t personally know but due to consistent exchange of conversation, I was able to establish this kind of “online” relationship with them. Someday, I would definitely meet all of you in person. But soon would be better.. 🙂 Basta walang magpapalibre.. hehe 😛
So that wraps up the first year and now on to the second. This is my 162nd post. Compared to others, this is considerably few. More active blogging on the 2nd year!. 🙂
One year old! and getting older..
