Blog Description : Francramon.com is a collection of my everyday life experiences, my travel adventures and my runs and living a life as an athlete.

About the Author : I’m a Franc of all trade.
I’m a CPA and Finance person by profession and I do get my fair share of corporate headaches and pressures but other than that I’m now firmly attached to the finer side of life.
I train, I run and I race. Running has now been a part of my lifestyle and so is the endless chase of new personal records, longer distances, various terrains and new challenges.
I travel… for work, for fun, for rest or just to explore new frontiers. I’m such a free spirit when it comes to travel and I probably have one foot forward when it comes to going for new adventures.
I’m a thinker. I have my point of view to absolutely everything under the sun. I’m creative enough to come up with new ideas no matter how crazy it is.
I’m a writer ever since I had the sudden urge to join our school paper in high school and I am now back to my writing roots… whether I’m writing about my thoughts, my travels, my runs or absolutely any topic that may come to mind and this site is a haven of all version of me being a Franc of all trades
What's your inspiration behind your blog and how long was it around?
I started blogging in 2003 and have over 500 blogs since then but it's more of a chronicles of my day to day life. Late last year, I decided to merge everything in a single dot.com site and hence, Francramon.com was born. It was also last year that I was more active in promoting my site. Writing is one of my passion ever since I was in high school and I've been with the school paper since high school and even becoming Editor-in-Chief in college yet writing was never my career as I eventually and successfully had a career in Finance. Blogging was a way to get back to the passion of writing.
How did you get into blogging?
I always loved writing and I started blogging via friendster blogs as a way to get back to writing. I eventually decided to shift to blogspot a few years later and eventually added a travel and run section to chronicles my adventures. Everything is now consolidated at Francramon.com.
What is your favorite blog post?
My favorite blogpost was a feature I wrote about Bellarocca which was my first blog that had around 300 hits, prior to that I used to just have few friends reading my post. The article also got featured in a travel mag. This was also one of the reason for creating francramon.com to be able to offer my blogs to a bigger market. Now, I am a contributor for a sports magazine and I'm back to my original passion of writing.
Currently, I love my run blogs at it allows me and the runners in the race who reads it to re-experience the intricacies of the race. It's one of my most read blogs and one blog about Outbreak Manila was able to generate about 1,500 hits.
