Marking The Filipino Scribe’s third anniversary

Yesterday was the third anniversary of The Filipino Scribe (TFS). I can still remember the exact circumstance when I began this blog. It was late afternoon of March 31, 2011 and I am still working as an editor for a book publishing firm.

I haven’t really written in a long time so I felt an urge to have an online diary of sorts for my thoughts. I never imagined that within the next three years, my life would be greatly shaped by this blog. We’ve had 538 blog posts so far and 2.6 million total page views.

I want to personally apologize to all the readers of this blog. You may have been disappointed by the fact that TFS has gone untouched for over three weeks last month. Believe me, that’s not something I wanted to happen.

No matter how much will I have to write, working as a full-time college professor took most of my time. The past few weeks had been extremely busy for me since it coincided with the end of the past semester (where we got flooded with tasks like checking papers and computing grades). Now that I’m already on a summer break, expect TFS to have more frequent blog posts.

Anyway, I’d also like to share that I have just completed two school years teaching in college. By my estimate, I’ve already handled about 1,000 students. I enjoy interacting with students from diverse backgrounds and different personalities.

I’m happy to be part of their college life. Needless to say, they’ve also become a part of my life. And I firmly believe that our paths crossed for a reason.

Teaching is a grossly underpaid profession, but it puts you in a position to influence minds and shape the future like no other. Whichever direction the wind takes me in the future, I’d look back at the past two years with much pride and happiness.

    You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be really something which I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and very broad for me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!|
