My Luck As a Blogger Keeps Getting Better

Wazuup Pilipinas!

My producer/partner requested me to email my personal profile and some of my photos so UNTV can make me a promotional profile for the TV shows I will be involved in. He then forwarded it to UNTV with the following message:

"Below is an initial profile and photos of one of our partner/producer/host/blogger of our incoming TV shows to promote our merchants & etc..."

That statement calls for a celebration. I believe I deserve a feast fit for a King ... or a Blogger ... that's soon to be a ...  "Partner/Producer/Host of TV shows" (not my words).

"Sana di ako magkalat sa taping or shoot. Lol! Sobrang kabado ako. Baka ma-mental block lang ako when infront of the camera. Nakakahiya kapag ganoon ang mangyayari. Sino ba gagawa ng script? Ano ba dapat isusuot ko?. Magpapa-make-up rin ba ako? Kailangan ko na bang magpapayat..o mas nakakatuwa ang mataba sa TV?...Hahaha .. Kaloka talaga!"

I am so grateful that my luck keeps getting better everyday, and I owe it all to the people who believed and supported Wazzup Pilipinas.  This is one of the nicest early Christmas present I got this year. My enthusiasm is at its peak right now, and hoping for more good fortune soon.

Armed with a camera I won from a blogging contest (I used to have only a point-and-shoot), and a smartphone for social media postings (won so many times from tweeting and Instagram contests), plus my natural and never-ending curiosity to learn about new things and share my reviews, opinions and feedback, I continue to immerse myself towards a passionate advocacy.

Many have tried so many times to dissuade me to do other things and to conform with the norm, but I persisted in taking the path less traveled and going beyond the common expectations even if it means being alienated from my peers. Many have tried to discourage me by spreading rumors and exaggerated issues against me, but no one can put a "real" good man down when he is determined to succeed. Many have belittled me, cursed me, trampled on my character and integrity, but look where I am now. 

Alam naman natin ang totoo kaya mananaig pa rin ang naninindigang tahakin ang tamang landas. Lalabas at lalabas ang katotohanan at papanigan ang nasa matiyagang magsumikap para sa tunay na ikagaganda ng kalagayan ng karamihan.

There are fellow bloggers who keep calling me "idol" whenever they see me, and I get a little uncomfortable because I am never really after the fame or the admiration of others. My ultimate desire is to show the whole world that blogging should be primarily fun, flexible and free from any fear of others who try to control or keep you on a leash.

It's not supposed to be a competition with other bloggers. It's not supposed to be about who has the highest number of views or followers. It's not supposed to be who's earning the big bucks from all the ads, sponsorships and paid articles. Blogging is supposed to be for our personal gratification. It is sad that most of us have lost the real meaning of what blogging is all about.

We can be nice to all the PRs, event organizers, companies, and fellow bloggers that we work with, but we should never forget to keep ours personal principles, unbiased decisions and moral values intact and in place.

In our hands lies the power to influence and motivate people. As they say in the superhero movies and comic books, with great power comes great responsibility... But blogging should be from someone who writes to primarily satisfy himself and not necessarily the people around him.
