Made it on the Top 10

I’m a young blogger as a matter of fact my first official blog was over Friendster on March 23, 2006. Everything was a challenge then, what’s blogging–I didn’t do my assignment and say I just learned along the way. So, when Lynette introduced me to wordpress, I finally appreciated blogging (especially problogging), CSS, tag clouds and the stats better!

The wonders of stat has sinked in to me only a few months after I got the grip of blogging (and moving to wordpress)–thanks to blogmates Lynette, Jonas, Yuga, Joey, Massa P., Prof. Arao among others (well, just see my widget at the right :)).

I usually write in English so I set my language to English. However, I found it pretty hard competing with native speakers and professional bloggers on wordpress. So, I was wondering how to increase the exposure (read: traffic) of my blog. Remember Massa P. suggested link exchanges while Yuga suggested that a contest might do the trick. I even joined Pinoy Top Blogs to test the waters.

A few months, posts and comments on popular blogs on wordpress and other blog hosts I’m finally getting there. The other day, I hardly noticed the news on my dashboard-well I hardly check–when my eyes caught a familiar icon. I made it on the wordpress’ day’s top hot blogs! My post re radio made it to the day’s hot posts, too including my post re my home coming. Here’s how the list looked like:
