I just finished modifying my link page. If you are looking for my blogroll, you wont see it in my side bar because I already transferred it in my link page. I created that page 2 months ago and I left “This page is under construction” note but I noticed that it has already comments so I decided to update it.
My link page has a list of MyBlogLog Community members and I posted their profiles and avatars.
MyBlogLog is a yahoo service which provides a venue for bloggers and website owners to communicate. You don’t have to sign up if you already have a yahoo account. Just log-in using your yahoo account. This is the account you used when you are chatting thru Yahoo Messenger and your e-mail address as well. Your yahoo account is a central account which you can use for opening all yahoo service such as YM, Ymail, Yahoo 360, Flicker, Geocities, Yahoo Answers, Yahoo Groups, Yahoo Games , MyBlogLog and many more… You can find all yahoo services by going to yahoo homepage and clicking more yahoo services.
I created my first email address in 1999 and internet during that time is very rare. I just have to create an email address because I have nephews in US and we have to communicate. I am using AOL mail and AOL Messenger then. My browser then was Netscape Navigator.
My link page shall contain my blogroll, my most visited links and resources, my community, my portfolio and contacts from different social communities. I just finished uploading my blogroll and MyBlogLog Community members. Other links will be included soon.
If you’re a MyBlogLog member and you want your profile to be included in my link page and blogroll, just add me, join my community and add my link in your blogroll and inform me by leaving a comment in my link page. Please remember that you must add me first. I have requests of link exchange but after I added their links in my blog, I visited their blogs and noticed that I was not included in their blogroll so I removed them.
I never noticed it in the past but my fellow bloggers told me about it. Well yes, it’s unfair and a one way ticket. Being a blogger, we have to know the basic rules. If we want to have a thriving community, it must be a mutual effort. I make it a point to drop a regular visits and comments to my community members and blogger friends in my blogroll. By doing such, you will see that you are not just adding friends but creating a community as well. When somebody joins your community, we take responsibility to keep in touch with our members. We must send them at least a community message to make them feel that they are important.
My stay in the blogging world was no different when I was a union organizer. We can only create active members and leaders thru constant follow up and meetings. I have requests here to organize a blogger’s community here in Tarlac and I am really taking into consideration if I will push it. My resignation from work was triggered when I was included in the hitlist released by NOLCOM in 2004. Most of the names in the list are now gone and tagged as “Victims of Political Killings” I am a mommy of 4 kids and to slowdown from labor struggles is not cowardice in lieu of life’s preservation. It really breaks my heart to abandon my members especially now that they are facing many labor union issues. These are the reason why I am still hesitant but maybe I will have to start again.
