Dear Jowee

Published on February 14, 2013

Years ago when I was merely a blog reader up until now that I have my own site, I love leaving comments and even sending email messages to my favorite bloggers. I remember feeling giddy when I receive replies from them, whether a reply to my comment, email message or tweet. I started receiving feedback from readers a couple of years after I started blogging. Though it’s just once in a blue moon, I appreciate the fact that readers go out of their ways to reach out to me. After all, I was once a reader like them. Last year, I started feeling a sense of reassurance that I am actually doing something good through writing. I get really ecstatic when an unknown email address pops out of my email notifications. Aside from readers’ inquiries, I get countless of “thank you” and “you inspire me” messages. And since I’m also on Twitter, what used to be a once-in-a-blue-moon phenomenon now happens at least once a week.

Last week, I wrote about the email messages I got from two of my readers. And that same week, I got a very unusual tweet from Jowee. If I remember it correctly, we were classmates during our junior year in high school. We were from different social groups. She comes from a circle of pretty and likable girls. I come from the DORKS!!! :p I haven’t seen her in ages, but I remember bumping into her many times since we went to the same university. Though we’re not close, I don’t think she comes from the “classmates who now read my blog who I thought didn’t like me” list which I mentioned here. I hope so. :p

jowee
Notice that more than a decade ago, she is still pretty and likable in her profile picture. Ansabeh ng Frankenstein ko?!

She referred to my blog as light and inspirational. Ayiii! Kinilig ako hanggang skull! :p And when readers use the word "fan", I feel like my lungs and my liver are exchanging their positions! It may be anatomically impossible, but that’s how I feel when people appreciate the little things I do, like keeping up this blog for instance. Kinikilig ako hanggang atay! :p

Thank you, Jowee. You have two adorable babies. I know how hard it is to take care of your growing family and manage a career at the same time. I do hope that my crazy stories, my food and travel entries, my journey in faith and my search in finding out God’s plans for me have somehow made motherhood a little more bearable for you. :)

I have such sweet and wonderful readers. I may not make money with this blog. But my readers’ appreciation makes me feel that I am born to write! Pinapaiyak ninyo ako! :p I’m actually more inspired to write. I’m now warming up, flexing my muscles and cracking my neck so I can write more. Bwahahaha!

THANKS JE! sobrang saya ko... feeling ko nahalikan ako sa lips ni piolo pascual, CHOS!!! papapicture ako sayo pag nagkita tayo... hahaha!!! fan na fan?! hahaha!!!

    Seriously, thank you for appreciating your readers...like me. I'm sure ganun din yung nafi-feel ng ibang readers na narereplayan mo. Kaya go, write some more. Hindi lang kasi basta basta you tell a story, or a review... nandun yung sincerity... na gusto mong i-share yung nai-experience mo to help other people not to brag about it. gets?! (shoot! ang hirap magexplain!) hahaha!

    Anyway, I'm so happy about it... IPOPOST KO TO SA TWITTER, FACEBOOK, INSTAGRAM!!! Sorry FANGIRL... ako na talaga!!! hahaha!!!
