So here’s the question that goes: What is the most significant bloggable event that happened to you in 2010?
The Year 2010 is a banner year for me for some of the many important reasons.
To start with in any order, I have met and made some, few and friends now growing in the blogosphere – To start with, if I can still remember (scanning my memory bank in my head) way back between 2007 and 2008, I first joined the first ever blogging christmas party for bloggers held at Casa Letecia’s Coco’s Bar.
Attended for the first time the mini WordCamp 2008 and from there I met Lyle Santos a registered part-time nurse and full-time blogger – he’s also a mentor too when it comes to blogging, sharing some adsense tips anything that’s related to technology, next I also had a pose with Matt Mullenweg founder of WordPress.
Blogging events came into succession, I’ve been joining blog events like the Google Mapping Party wherein I brushed elbows and met in person the blogosphere’s notable blogger Jehzeel Laurente – awestruck (hmm.. apt description for this is StarStruck eh?) and speechless I jokingly call him an idol!
Selected page of this blog like the Google Pagerank Update schedule got as high as Google Pagerank 5, I did not imagine google was some sort selective in ranking pages.
Invitation from Neo Philippines Press launching of Neo’s Newest Core i Laptops.

WordCamp 2010 was my biggest event ever, flying from Davao to Manila and getting left behind by an MRT train station – lessons learned – move fast Faust! followed by BlogFest 2010 event in Gensan – Box Office!
There’s a local newspaper hinting to offer me to be a columnist in their technology section – everything under the sun.
For the month of December 2010 – I consider a blessing was handed down to us. As a government employee, performance bonus of P7,000, an approved 30 days leave credits that was converted and monetize into cash around P14,000 a Christmas Bonus of P10,000, that they call Pnoy is already in the bank, and upcoming P1,500 coming from the City Government.
