How the KC-Piolo split gave me my first viral blog
When I finished writing the blog “Piolo Pascual and KC Concepcion breakup – Top Ten Celebrity Reactions,” I knew right there and then that I will have another blogging hit (by my standards, a post that will get around 1000 views). What I didn’t anticipate is that the blog will go viral. To date, the said post has gotten over 13000 views. In fact, the post was listed in WordPress.com’s list of top posts worldwide for two straight days:
WordPress also included my blog last November 30 in their list of “Blogs of the Day” under the “Growing Blogs” category – ranked number three! I first got the recognition last September, and back then, I was listed at number 71. The entire blog was reposted by Inquirer.net in the article “KC-Piolo breakup draws different reactions on Facebook, Twitter.” The article title has since been changed to “KC-Piolo split stirs cyber buzz” for the Nov. 29 issue of the Philippine Daily Inquirer. However, I take issue with the Inquirer’s translation of some lines into English without my consent.
Thank you so much to the Professional Heckler and EnterVRexWorld for letting me promote that particular blog in their respective websites. Also, my sincere appreciation to everyone who shared my blog in Facebook, Twitter, and online forums. I’d like to point out that this happened on the heels of the 7th PopDev Media Awards, where I received the Best Text Blog award.
I know it is extremely difficult to replicate this feat anytime soon, but I hope I can do it again anytime soon. Of course, thanks to both my old and new readers!
