Get Ready for a Better Wazzup Pilipinas!

Before being a blogger, I used to be a systems administrator handling ICT - servers, networks, sat phones, radios, CCTVs, etc., doing regular system monitoring and updates, backups, security, repairs, maintenance, etc., including the planning, budgeting, and purchase of equipment, plus getting the necessary permits from government agencies, licenses from software companies, and conducting training as well.

But then my bosses keep asking me to do their digital presentations for them. I got so interested since aside from the need to be knowledgeable in software, you need to be artistically inclined too. You need it to mix and match colors, fonts, images, animations, etc.

I was also opinionated. I always want to defend the the underdogs. I keep butting in at online discussions or forums and giving my onsolicited thoughts and opinions. Some even called me a troll because of my frequent participation at similar threads.

But it was also during these times that somebody suggested I create a blog instead. But I created so many blogs before I finally settled with one....and that was not yet Wazzup Pilipinas. My very first blog was too personal but was an outlet for me.

It was only in 2013 when I created Wazzup Pilipinas after a very unpleasant experience writing for an online publication that was more concerned about kissing the ass of their sponsors rather than siding with their correspondents.

I got so motivated to focus on Wazzup Pilipinas because I believe blogging should share the truth whether the story will be favorable to the sponsors or not. We are also entitled to our own style. Nobody should dictate what we want to share to our readers. The sponsors should not dictate or screen our content. There should be ultimate freedom in blogging. Our blogs, our rules. Like it or not.

Wazzup Pilipinas will soon strongly implement these principles. There will be many changes soon. Get ready for a better Wazzup Pilipinas!
