Unwittingly, the medium has defined the chapters of my life.
The Internet came just before I entered high school. I joined the Friendster bandwagon by third year, and switched to Multiply in college. After graduating, it’s on to Facebook, and now, WordPress.
Such a blog is long overdue for me. While I kept one sporadically updated in Multiply, I felt a “more professional-looking” blog might motivate me to update more and post on a variety of topics.
This blog covers my life, my thoughts and experiences, profiles of people I encounter, my take on current events, quick dissertations on my many interests, and (I still hope) reviews on the media.
“PinoyJournalist” is a tag I’ve used to name my gadgets’ memory drives for some years. It wasn’t a big claim to be the Pinoy Journalist, but a mere name to identify me as a Filipino, and as a member–and observer–of the press.
That was in college. Now I am with the press. It might hinder me from posting too often, and maybe from posting objectively on media issues. We’ll see.
For now, let the medium not hinder the message.
