The Filipino Scribe marks its 11th anniversary

The Filipino Scribe marks its 11th anniversary

Today is the 11th anniversary of The Filipino Scribe!

Thank you so much to all my readers! You are the reason why I am still doing this after all these years. And with that, let me share tonight the website’s updated logo and header design!

The Filipino Scribe‘s updated logo and header design was created by Mr. Seiji Kameyama. It was inspired by the Philippine flag with the image of a quill pen at the center.

Honestly, this time last year, I was already unsure how to proceed with my site. It has been largely inactive for about three years as I focused on finishing my master’s thesis and teaching career.
Nevertheless, I knew deep since that I have to keep on writing even if this is no longer as profitable as it once was.

The website is an important part of my personal branding, and hence I have to maintain it for as long as I can. I can’t imagine life without The Filipino Scribe.

On another point, the annual charges for website hosting and domain renewals is quite significant so I have to recover my investment somehow.

And as you all know last December 2021, I’ve had the opportunity to publish a compilation of my selected articles through the book “Right on the Mark: Selected Articles from The Filipino Scribe” which was published by Mr. Irvin Vargas’ Book of Life Publication.

On a personal note, today’s anniversary celebration is giving me an opportunity to think about what else I want to do with The Filipino Scribe. Obviously, you can expect more election-related articles as the campaign period enters its final five weeks. In fact, the site has a pending application for accreditation before the Commission on Elections. After the elections, let’s see how the circumstances will play out. I also expect to make a big career transition by then, and I am excited about it.
