Could I possibly be the World’s First Filipino Blogger?
My first “blog” date back as early as 1999 although back then, I just kept my articles in my website and called them “literary works”. Too bad I didn’t put dates so I can’t recall exactly when I wrote those articles. These articles were written well before Blogger, which was started in 1999 August.
On 2000 July 17, I started another set of “blogs” but called them “journals” with “Last Week in the Philippines” being my first entry. My intention was to keep my friends and family informed with what’s happening with me as a trainee in Japan.
On 2004 April, my friend introduced me to Blogger so I created my Blogger account although I didn’t really make use of it until about half a year later. I still wrote my “blogs” and published them to my now defunct website.
Early this year, I moved all my articles to Blogspot and dated them accordingly so you’ll see all the articles I’ve written since 1999.
Wow. Writing all these makes me nostalgic. I wonder when I’ll be writing my first blog in Japanese. That would be another milestone for me.
Going back to my question “Could I possibly be the World’s First Filipino Blogger?”. I guess the answer would really depend on what can be considered a “blog“.
