The Nomad’s Journey Continues

I began my journey in blogging mid-July this year. Within a month my journey took bizarre twists and turns. I began by writing about personal stuff and about trivial things as I learned to ropes of blogging. Like a child who has just learned to walk, I began to venture into political issues and articulated my stand on the different issues of the day in my blog NOMADIC THOUGHTS.

 

Last August 8, I wrote about the Mahaderang Matapobre sa mga OFWs, a post that unexpectedly catapulted my blog into the middle of a brewing controversy about an article written by Malu Fernandez that many people found insulting to Filipino OFW’s. That issue went into a high gear that I found myself lost in the strong current of fever-pitch traffic and angry comments. For a while the Mahaderang Matapobre swallowed my blog in a real one-post-wonder fashion. For almost 2 months my blog became a forum of sorts, mostly for OFWs wanting to express their anger and disgust over the article.

 

Like all issues, no matter how HOT!, the Mahaderang Matapobre gradually died down. And the Nomad continued by writing about other controversial issues as well – the Erap Estrada conviction, the ZTE Deal. In between these political commentaries, I also made it a point to make time and space for my blog friends – writing about them, joining in their tag-games.

 

Today, I found my Nomadic Thoughts blog suspended for reasons that escape me. I can speculate but I won’t dwell on that. I almost gave up in exasperation and disappointment if it were not for two angels – MARU and JOJITAH. Sabi ni Maru – people like me do not surrender; talak ni Jojitah – ang mga tulad natin ay parang damo, kapag binubunot mas lalong tumutubo. Salamat sa inyong dalawa, mga binibining ubod ng bait, talino at ganda.

 

So the Nomad’s Journey goes on and as a tribute to my suspended blog the NOMADIC THOUGHTS I am posting some of its stats. Dapat sana ang mga stats na ito ay gagamitin ko para sa ipopost ko today sa blog na yun – a revisit to the Mahaderang Matapobre. Pero since wala na nga sya it is but fitting that I pay tribute to it. Here is an inside look at the Nomadic Thoughts dashboard:

  11. kapatid, my blog was hacked and I recovered it. madami dyan ingitero.. tama si Maru. If you want apply ka ng blog sponsorship (alam ni chuvaness kung san kasi I told her to apply and she was approved) para may self hosted WP blog ka na. they can hack it but they wont prevail kasi mas secured dahil ikaw lang ang may control sa lahat lahat.

    nagulat ako kasi I just opened my blog uli yesterday tapos ili-link kita sana ngayon ng naglaho parang bula blog mo.. then I came across Jojie’s blog (buti dumalaw ako dun) and saw your new URL there. Don’t stop fighting for those who have no voices…

    this scares me because I was targeted last week also…

    but glad you;re back online

    *****Sumablay lang daw ang WordPress yan ang kanilang paliwanag sa forum nila. Salamat sa concern :)*****

  27. Hi Selvo maylab,
    I think tama si reyna elena, doon ako sa may nag-report ng blog mo. Maybe they suspended your blog muna, tapos when WP checked, wala namang cause for suspension kaya naibalik agad.

    Puta naman , napilitan tuloy akong magbasa ng TOS ng WP.com hehe.

    Palagay ko may natapakan kang political paa hahaha! O may yudeputang NAINGGIT sa phenomenal hits mo. Alam mo na , some bloggers are willing to kill and be killed for those set of numbers na ang tawag ay “blog hits”. And fyi, for the life of me, hindi ko ma-gets kung bakit.

    Labyu, as always.

    *****huwaw my lab nagcomment ka din at last… tagal ko na papacute sayo ngayon lang ikaw nagcomment hehehe salamat po i’m honored. Yun din duda ko actually ayoko lang mag speculate. Pero yun nga WP clarified that they made a mistake. Thanks for dropping by gorgeous. Labyubak*****

  28. kahit san ka pa mapadpad kuya selvo susundan pa rin kita!! hehe na late nga lang ko kasi lam mo na yung trabaho ko masyadong pamatay hehehehe.,.,.,.,,,.,

    xiao!

    *****awww susundan mo ko. i’m flattered kahit parang may tonong istoker hehehe… oist baka magselos se ano… xiao ka? pong ako!*****

  29. weeee…. ang cute.. dala-dalawa na..

    *****sabi nga ni Dodong na bf ni Inday… its a blessing in the skies hehehe*****

  30. awww..nasuspend ka pala? ngayon lang ako nakapag-online. tsk tsk tsk.. it’s a good thing that you had created this new account. malamang pag nangyari rin sa akin ito, magiging sampu ang blog ko. eniwey, keep on blogging selvo. i’ll continue reading your two blogs. carpe diem ๐Ÿ˜‰

    *****Buti nga ganun lang eh. Actually I was resigned to losing the Nomadic Thoughts blog na. Buti na lang aksidente lang pala. Mas type ko yata kung per diem pare para makapag self-host na*****

  31. chi puo’ dirmi un sito per chattare?
