Blogger, remember your roots

Every so often it would be good to reflect on your roots as a blogger and what got you started with writing in the first place. Doing this can help put some perspective in your overall goal of blogging whether it be for fun, for profit or for sharing things with others.

Remembering your roots can also help you avoid unnecessary conflict in the future as it puts a lot of things in perspective. I’d like to share you my roots:

Ah, the nostalgia!

This is where it began. No, really. This is where it began. Even though I had been writing for my personal 20six blog site since 2004, this was where my public blogging life started – where I started to write about technology often both in print and online. That’s Adel Gabot, Howard Paw, Jason de Villa, Poch Bermudez, Art Ilano, and myself — still in pink! This was m|PH magazine on its second year.

What about you, blogger? Do you remember your roots?
