Obligatory confession: Why did you choose WordPress above all blogging platforms?
First of all, I would like to thank WordPress for being a blogger-friendly platform. Aside from that, WordPress offers categories as factors for organizing your blog posts. Also, WordPress is also conducive for learning, but I only see a handful of bloggers use WordPress as their blogging platform. Also, WordPress has this comment box which has a much friendlier approach to anons.
Not to lambast other blogging platforms, but here’s why.
Compare and Contrast with other blogs
Blogger, when it comes to customized themes, is hard-to-please. It’s only good if you want your cbox to be linked or as a widget, or maybe polls, but for learning and comments, it isn’t really as conducive as WordPress.
Typepad – you have to pay for it!
LiveJournal – LiveJournal is not actually a bad blog platform at all, but this is designed for people who’d like to have their personal blog. Besides, it also isn’t really conducive for learning as well.
Xanga – It’s like the blog version of Friendster. It’s only for those hippies who love to copy-paste surveys and it isn’t as user-friendly as WordPress.
People who used Blogger are moving to WordPress
Some of them, actually. Others are from Tumblr. Hmm… I really don’t know why, but WordPress is actually more enjoyable than any other blog platforms out there. Hmmm… maybe it’s just me?
Somehow, the reason why I enjoyed it is because, you don’t have to put your location or something, or maybe it’s because it’s designed for the OC person, especially if categories are needed to be organized.
First, I left Xanga, LiveJournal or maybe Blogger. The reason why I did this is because, WordPress has created a home for me, where I can write things like my personal opinions, or maybe my interests!
People like my followers recommend WordPress
Mikx is one of those people who encouraged me to go back to WordPress.com is because… the blogging environment is conducive. Same with Roxy.
Of course, if you want to create fiction stories, you’d rather be in WordPress, or post the past articles of your school paper. That would mean a lot more than everything.
Most people do not understand why I blog a lot of things, be it with sense or not.
Tyrone Perez is found dead on a car… maybe he was poisoned or committed suicide. Oh no! Perez… AJ Perez, then Tyrone aww. Well, Amy Perez, good luck!
[x] Passed all my subjects
[x] Wrote a review about a photographer
[x] Created a blog designed for most of my literary works (I am doing this is because I write directly on the Internet, not on document!)
[x] Achieved again a number of notes and faves – Update: State of Oblivion gaining faves!
[x] Started photography again.
[x] Stopped thinking about my crush and started not to think about him again haha.
A brief introduction to my new blog, the literary one
Molybdenum Studios Literary is currently my new blog. I still do not have an icon yet for that blog, but soon, I’ll create one if I’m not feeling too lazy.
First of all, I created the plot of my stories, Osaka Monogatari and of course, I Heart Mr. Enforcer.
Finally, Osaka Monogatari is written, even only a summary of it is because, I really love Japan. And yes, this is a story about two brothers who never had a happy beginning, while I Heart Mr. Enforcer is a story about a policeman and a seductive criminal who wins his heart at the end.
A series of events let me start a new beginning
First of all, I wrote a blog entry about quitting photography. However, what motivated me is only creativity and imagination. Photography is actually for me, just a hobby, but the only reason why I made it serious is because, well, just for a back-up job in case I won’t take up law at all. I simply observed that my specialization should be food photography and of course, fine art photography. Well, what defines fine art? Bokeh.

It seemed that this post is shorter than the first centennial post
Of course, I really do not have something in mind and I only blog sometimes, good thing there’s a challenge I accepted so that I would post everything everyday. Haha.
Why Anything at Random was discontinued
Hmm… long story, but if you guys want some random things, just tell me.
If you guys really want to know who I really am, you better read this. FULL OF DRAMA? Get used to it. I am pouring all my heart out. To my dear supporters, remember to be vigilant when a hater arrives. I’ll notify you if he/she’s coming.
The Worst Blog in the Universe
Y’all wonder why its tagline is “The Worst Blog in the Universe.” It is because, this is a sign of humility and of course, even though I receive a lot of pageviews all over the world, at least I remain grounded as a netizen. I never ever resorted to fights online, except those in the forums.
Of course, knowing who I was during the times of 2006~2010, you really do not know who I really am. I was in the middle of identity crisis and I couldn’t almost express my thoughts. I really feel that many people are eyeing me when I write something against a certain topic. I couldn’t help but to make things senseless.
My life was structured
I never liked the idea of being controlled by any obstacle.
Read my former blog posts, and compare it to my previous blog (if you’re an ardent reader of this blog, y’know what the link is, right?). Differentiate my life then and my life right now. My life right now resembles in this blog and my life way back then resembles who I really am when I was still in high school. I really hate mentioning the term “high school” since it was the worst of my times. However, I really have to be specific this time, whether I like it or else.
I used to be an introvert. I almost couldn’t express my thoughts. Most of my blog entries have no point at all. You could really notice how introverted I really am. Pointless posts. Wasted blogs. Full. Of. Bullcrap.
Living a flexible life has never been better. It made me become more outspoken, which made me interact with more people.
My Previous Blogs were such a waste
True. While this blog is my only decent blog (so far, so good!), the others, make no sense at all. They’re just designed to look eye-candy, with useless posts. Remember, I was trying to fit in other people, based on their websites. It turned out that their websites reflect their personality: Fake people.
Like, you’re really dictating people, not to be “plastics, backfighters and feeling close?”
I used to have a very stiff mind, and at the same time, a very stiff way of thinking.
Being plastic (or being a hypocrite) means “lying,” but truth is, it is really a strategy when you start a conversation with a know-it-all. Do not always believe in what the know-it-all says. Remember, being plastic is the only strategy for you to fool that person.
Being a backfighter is not that bad, actually. Why, do you think when someone did wrong to you, you won’t backfight? Backfighting is normal, it really happens. If you really hate that person, it’s alright to backfight. No problem! Maybe they’ll just realize that you’re talking behind their back.
Lastly, being feeling close IS NOT BAD AT ALL, unless that person is a backfighter. Being feeling close is only an exaggerated term for “being too familiar.” If you really do not want feeling close people, then don’t be sociable at all. Sometimes, even the know-it-alls who are feeling close have better people skills, though their attitude is intolerable.
Now, back to the “stiffness.” What do I mean by “stiff mind, stiff thinking?”
That means, I really cannot shit out my feelings! Tagalugin ko na talaga, ha (sorry non-Filipinos or Filipinos who cannot understand Tagalog at all, but bear with it!), dati, nagpapadala ako sa mga emosyon ko, which is wrong. I might have been a more “disrespectable” type of blogger rather than to be a respectable blogger if I base everything from emotion alone. Like what I said before, “Always bring your mind with you.”
Dictating me? Fuck you!
I only learned how to cuss even before I entered high school. Now what’s wrong with it, anyway?
Sorry for the little kids if you’re reading my blog, but this blog isn’t for you just yet.
Dictating me for who I am (or who I am not) is simply… bullcrap. Alright, some people feel offended if they’re dictated, while they’re the ones dictating other people. If some people think I type everything just because I’m desperate, of course not! I type everything how I feel here, but at least I do not include my personal life here like, “Dear Diary” thing. Never contradict the person if he/she says something which contradicts their personality right in front of their faces.
If people think I’m “trying-hard,” could you type like a pro when you blog? Could you really experiment so hard that you want to achieve something? Are you too hard to please? Well, you’re just desperate. You have many frustrations in life, you have many regrets. Dictating someone is completely WRONG, that everyone will start to talk behind your back.
I feel sorry for the marginalized people
How I wish I were someone else, although everyone’s lucky to know me as the nice girl. But they do not know my true colors, just yet.
Marginalized people are people who are constantly bullied or constantly being picked on at. These are people condemned for their unusual behavior at school. If they’re retards, doesn’t it make the bullies more of a retard when they bully someone?
These bullies are mostly popular kids who are “feeling elite.” They feel like they’re elite is because, they do the bad things. Of course, being an avid hater of those popular kids who bully people, I wanted them really down, all because of their unacceptable behavior and incompetency in academics.
As a forumer: Watch out for trolls
Seriously, I hate e-games forums. This forum is full of retards who do nothing at all but troll. I’m just fitting in, but y’know they’re using their jologs antics in the wrong way. However, that’s because I was still thinking in a stiff way. I really did not know how to respond to rude messages. If now, I could just simply reply to a rude comment like, “Fuck you!”, but I won’t do that, actually.
Here’s a little warning, just in case you want to lambast me, guys:
Now it’s time for me to name-drop someone, whether you like it or you like it. Hate me by being rude in this blog, I don’t care at all. You may lambast me in any manner, but you couldn’t really pull me down anymore, because I have a number of supporters guiding me, and I guess, they’ll be vigilant against you.
So, let me start with the worst criminals in the forums, particularly e-games.
1.) The Impresario – The name says it all. To “impress.” To impress… wait. In a wrong way, that is.
Yes, he’s criticized for being a “feeler” as he is one of the forum moderators. I really hated him so much that I almost wanted him to be… down down down. Like, what? Alright, you’re a forum moderator, but it’s really wrong to be a power-tripper, lalo na sa forums. Ban someone or close the thread, but being a feeler isn’t right. Sometimes, you have a lot of critics, because you’re becoming arrogant. Even your “impersonator” Unpreh is also like you: Arrogant, trashtalker, etc.
2.) Unpreh – Perhaps the most abhorred trashtalker is just like the guy whom he idolizes. Well, one message to this guy: Fuck you.
He doesn’t deserve respect AT ALL. Being arrogant doesn’t earn you good respect and at a same time, a very good reputation and a clean record. No wonder why he’s really the asshole who starts shitting out. I was even at that time not using FB or Tumblr, when some online buddy told me, “Sabunutan natin.”
I was so happy after he said that. Alright, fuck Unpreh and his stupid antics.
3.) Those forumers who are actually feeling conservative know-it-alls – Feelers! I do not respect you at all.
Now let’s move on to… PEX.
(I know, this is really a very difficult task to make, but bear with it!)
clawed_out – One of the most annoying twats in PEX, I would say that the sarcasm is really right there in the words itself. Remember the thing about the “frosh” in UST thing.
abernathy – clawed_out’s partner-in-crime, this person was very rude when I just asked a decent question. Like, yeah.
READ THIS THREAD and you’ll know how these two twats trashtalked the whole thread. May masama ba kung USTe = Frosh? Frosh term is not only Lasallian, it just started from the Lasallian jargons.
TO the tekkenzaibatsu forums…
1.) yiggs – this guy was really, a racist. I was just asking if there’s a Lili Rochefort version of Nina Williams’ Death by Degrees. Nagtatanong lang naman, tapos ang sumagot, rude? Racist. Yep, racist, indeed! I don’t want my heritage to be lambasted, even at international forums. Good thing I am not using that TZ forums anymore, because I don’t want to see any shit posted against me and my heritage.
Now that was over
If anyone again, will be rude, please, I will mark you as spam and eventually, you will be banned from commenting on this site, unless you apologize. I will only give you a second chance, if you are truly deserving.
I blog a lot, actually.
BUT, I have two separate blogs. One is my very most personal blog, and the other is about outside personal things.
Blogging isn’t about making money out of your personal life. Blogging is all about sharing things that others do not know. It’s about being serious and also having a sense of humor at the same time.
Blogging is all about… making everything a magazine online.
Lessons learned from other bloggers (although they don’t say it, a’ryt)
1.) Always make your blog private if it is all about your complete personal life.
2.) If it’s public, don’t ever namedrop. Remember, namedropping is always a mortal sin on the Internet.
3.) If you love to namedrop, isolate your blog. Yes, it’s possible, actually.
4.) Always post something meaningful.
5.) Use the stream of consciousness.
The things that you should try avoiding…
1.) Showing that you are in the identity crisis period.
2.) Posting stuff that you usually do not show to the crowd.
3.) Posting something really bad, unless you have completely moved on.
4.) Embracing porn and posting it on your blog.
The reason why I started the “Anything in Random” challenge is because I want everyone to show their prowess in blogging. It is a fearless forecast game (of course, I do not really require those who are joining to post photos of their non-celebrity crushes) where they can post something about things that they really want to share, etc. I really do not explain much since I do not think before I speak, or maybe y’know what I’m using… 😀
Taboos when blogging/Do’s and Don’ts
I really consider these as taboos is because… they do not really express who you really are. Try not to fit in with these common people and be unique! It’s not bad to be unique since… it’s not fake or common.
1.) Telling everyone on your intro box in Multiply saying, “You view, you comment. No plastics, backfighters or feeling close, and no rude comments will be posted.” — Of course, who cares about you if no one is interested about your life, right?
2.) Don’t grab/steal without crediting others — I did this before, actually. However, because I think it’s wrong, I started to delete it. So, yeah. Always give credit to the person who owns that picture, ok? Some are very tolerant and forgiving, but please don’t ever test their patience!
Rating: It’s a DO.
3.) It’s alright to save/download photos of your crush — Yes, I consider stalking in this blog, but please, if you’re asking about the color of my underwear, it is always color pink. There you have it. I do not really ask about the color of my crush’s underwear since that’s privacy! If stalking your crush for you isn’t a bad idea after all, always remember that it is not good to ask for their landline number (but asking for their FB accounts is alright), their blood type or even their dark secrets. Always remember, a secret is always a secret and no one should be an asshole to reveal it, mmkay? If you are willing to stalk someone, make sure that the person you’re always following doesn’t personally know you. Oh, and last thing: Don’t ever plan an assassination plot if you really have an obsession on that person!
Rating: Drink Moderately.
4.) Listening to a know-it-all’s advice — The know-it-all is known for restraining you from blogging good things about what you sense in everyday life. Oh, come on. He/she’s not a true expert in blogging. I’m telling you, they’re not the ones to be trusted. It’s all in your own instincts if they’re just fooling you just to let their hands on fame.
Rating: It’s a DON’T.
5.) Posting negative things about a celebrity — This is much more acceptable. If you have anything BAD to say about that celebrity, go ahead, because’s no one is gonna stop you from doing it.
So, Imma post things about my experience about that person who tried to stop me from posting good stuff in deviantArt. 😀
The game is still on the go, but people are too lazy to join! Nah, don’t be shy! It’s a challenge, remember?
Blogger Profile: Miho
The half-Japanese, half-Filipina tourism student is one of the many famous bloggers not only in my former second home, but she keeps a deviantArt account that has many followers. If she wasn’t that good then as a photographer, at least she has improved. Siya nang maraming followers/watchers sa deviantArt xD. She is well-admired for her friendliness and most of all, the way she shows her kawaii side. Although being Japanese in looks, her heart belongs to the Philippines.
She has other blogs since she loves blogging a lot. I think I could almost relate with her since she was blogging about who she was before until her blog entries are starting to be like that of a real blogger. I really do not know if she has a new blog, but anyway, I think she has a lot of things to share, at least.
Typing in just one shutter click away
Photo blogs, or we call it, “PH-logs.” This term is coined by Andrew Pamorada, a proud Lasallian photographer who currently works for The LaSallian. Yep, that’s what most bloggers do. Aside from Kuya Andrew or “Andoy,” of course, who doesn’t even know Tricia Gosingtian, a fashion photographer and at the same time, a blogger? HA! She’s listed in “Interesting People” and you know how to find her there, right?
Creating a photo blog isn’t just blogging and taking pictures. It’s actually something that you want to express yourself… through pictures, that is. To express yourself in that way, there should be creativity. Aside from that, there should be aesthetics. This may sound technical, but y’know what I mean. Having a good photograph should speak a thousand words in it. So, yeah.
