Inspirational thoughts and ideas on family, education, school administration, church callings. It started sometime in February 2011. So, it already 1 year and 5 months in this July 2012.

How did you get into blogging?

My desire to write and start a blog was a challenge of my writing skills when Negros Bloggers President H. James Toga added me to Negros Bloggers closed group in Facebook, wherein good writers, good bloggers chatted regularly, especially at night. Every time I opened my computer to browse the Internet I directly signed in to my Facebook account and visited NB Page. There I saw several links of their blogs, which out of my curiosity, I read them all. Until I became get well acquainted with the members of NB and befriended with them. And I sensed my belongingness with this group which is composed of students, government employees, freelance writers, businessmen, realtors, legal luminaries, news reporters who were the pioneers of NB as the core group.

As I regularly followed up their blogs, I said to myself, "This is a challenge of my writing prowess to start a blog of my own. But of course not to compete with them for they'd different fields of expertise and mine is different too. Therefore, doing what I could muster to start a blog is the answer. I started with a unique title, RandomThoughts! not knowing that there are several similar blogs with that same title. Well, I started writing with a controlled contents of various topics which I believe could get the interest of my readers. And it did. For a matter of less than a year, RandomThoughts received the award as The Best Lifestyle Blog in 2011 given by the Philippine Blog Award. Likewise, my local dialect (Ilonggo) blog, Tumandok, received the award as The Best Culture and Arts in 2011 given the same by the Philippine Blog Award.

What is your favorite blog post and why?

"Are They Made for Each Other?" It was our unique true love story of my high school sweetheart and now my wife when we're studying in high school sometime in 1968. It was "unique" in the sense that we had the same birth dates: (month, date, and the year). Thus, from birth certificate to marriage certificate.
