I have dug a cache of precious gems in this goldmine of a blog. I am attesting to the fact that the articles are undoubtedly unparalleled. This man is the writer I have sought far and wide in the blogosphere.
The Role of Serendipity
I was commenting on Roy’s blog when I read his comment and got impressed, so I visited his blog. I could not help but raid his archives because I had gobbled up his newest post and still I wanted to read more. I practically put up camp in his blog so I could continue reading ALL of his posts even into the wee hours of dawn. I was utterly awed by his style, his language, his aphorisms, his effusiveness, and his witty one =liners and had savored every single sentence of his posts. Right then and there, I became an avid fan.
I left my first comment in his guest post at Jaypee Habaradas Blog: Jaypee Online: How to: 10 Ways To Bring Sexy Back To Your Blog . I did not comment though in all of his posts because I was thinking, he might not respond. But he replied to my comment and it made me very happy. This was when his blog was still “Sa Labas ng Mandaluyong.” I was like a fan having a first, personal encounter with my Superstar.
Here are some of the articles in his archive. They may be “old”, but are thought provoking. I have read them twice, thrice and even four times:
A New Domain Name
Then he won his own domain and named it “Writing to Exhale”. Slowly, he really began to notice me. Imagine! – I – who had been cool and unruffled at work, swooning now like a hopeless fanatic every time he responded lengthily to my comments. He was an engaging conversationalist and made all his commentators “feel at home”. After a hard day’s work, I usually proceeded straight to his blog to relax and to feed my mind and soul.
These are some of his posts in this domain: Writing to Exhale.
2. My Philosophy in a Bottle of Ketchup – a favorite of my wards.
A Talent That Should be Shared
He is very generous and helpful too and could be counted on, without you asking for it. I am talking about no less than Mr. Ultimate Writer himself – JAN GERONIMO!
Jan, keep on writing. As we both have advised Rey Jr. about his singing talent, that he should share this with other people; you should also share your writing acumen with more people, through your articles. The blogosphere needs to read a Jan Geronimo to really appreciate writing.
I mean every word I said in this post. You know me; if I have nothing good to say, then I’ll just remain silent. I rest my case!
