Thank YOU..You, You, and Especially YOU.

A few weeks back, I received an email from 3 college girls who were working on their thesis..and apparently it was about my blog! I seemed incredulous at first. My first reaction was, “Huwat?! Why me? Why my blog?”. I felt so ill-equipped, so unqualified to be a case study for their thesis. As soon as I got their formal email.. I opened a new tab to check my blog again, worried that they would be dissecting each and every post I wrote in the past. All I could think of was: “PATAY! Puro kalokohan at kababawan ang mga pinagsasabi ko sa blog ko!! Gaaaahh.” I was a bit worried for them too, I was this close to saying “You do realize that there are more bloggers out there, right? Big time bloggers who are ten times more famous, deep and influential!” Parang ako yung nalugi para sa kanila eh! But they were persistent and sweet and so I made time to meet with them over coffee last Saturday. It was actually quite an interesting interview and I found myself challenged to answer questions I’ve never ever encountered before. Questions like “What is the goal of your blog?” and “How do you come up with things to write about?” and “Do you consider yourself popular?”. “Popular?” I thought to myself, “Well, I guess you could say I was a little popular in grade school.. after all, I was the star in our school play” that’s all I could think of. But POPULAR as in “Miss, pa-autograph naman diyan” popular, heck NO. Baka pagtawanan lang ako ng mga kaibigan ko. “Guys, please maniwala naman kayo..SIKAT AKOOO!!!” Even my own friends don’t believe in my pseudo celebrity status! Mwahahaha 🙂

But this interview caused me to reflect on this blog even more. What is the goal of this blog? To be honest, I’m still figuring that one out. This started as a very personal blog, a means for me to update friends and loved ones who were scattered all over the globe. It was a way for me to sort of tell everyone close to me “Hey, this is what I’ve been up to lately” which slowly evolved into a “This is what makes me happy, I hope it makes you happy too” over the years. So I guess, that’s the best way to describe this blog..and I’d really like to keep it that way. Just a happy place in this big, vast online universe where people can come and have a “mini-vacation”..to just rest their troubling thoughts, set aside the office stress to just “come and waste your time with me”. Sometimes I worry that my posts might be perceived as too simple..but if you know me well, you’ll know that SIMPLE is what best describes me. (Ay mali, KENGKOY pala is what best describes me. Give me a piso for every time I’ve heard “Ang kengkoy mo!”..and I’d be a thousandaire by now! Friends, there are other adjectives you could use too you know..like “Sexy”and “Mysterious”. Hindi ba bagay sa kin? Damnit. Abangan niyo na, I’ll Angelina Jolie-fy myself..just you wait and see!!)

So to all of my readers–(all 10 of you,yes!2 digits na fanbase ko) who have journeyed with me all these years…Maraming Salamat. Aww, parang Vilma Santos moment ko eto!!!:)  But seriously, I am so overwhelmed by the number of emails I receive on a daily basis. I love reading all your letters..especially the emails on love and relationships! It allows me to release my inner Joe D’ Mango. Call me, Patty D’ Banana. Thank you for taking the time to spend a minute or two on this site each day.. I know there are millions of websites and blogs out there, so for you to pick this little girl’s blog– wow! that means so much to me. I’m so thankful that the Lord has made this a platform for me to reach all of you through my silly words and corny jokes.

My little contests are also my way of giving back to all of you, just a way for me to share the cool goodies that I personally bought or get for free from friendly sponsors. Sorry, I’m not as big time as the other bloggers out there..but these are little gifts that I personally like and would really love to share. Don’t worry kids, someday, when I’m the biggest of big time..House and Lot na premyo ko, Doll House and Lot! hahaha! So to everyone, thank you, thank you, thank you!:)

  1. Patty, THANK YOU too! It was actually YOU who inspired me to blog more often… I’ve always signed up on blog servers, but I never really got into the habit of “blogging.” But ever since I started reading your blog, whenever I read a post of yours, it just brightens up my day! So yeah, THANK YOU again! Keep it up, Idol Patty! 😉

    P.S: Those three girls are really LUCKY to have finally met you!
