I signed up this Blog-site yesterday, October 7, 2007. I can’t think of a better name so there it is – RLTJ. At least for the time being. Looks like plenty of ‘housekeeping’ ahead of me in my site…The first letter is that of my given name. Second letter stands for my father’s first initial added to mine – a deviation from Filipino custom because usually parents would have done them like LTJ Jr. Third letter is my middle initial. And the last letter is that of my family name. I spent more than half an hour thinking, thinking and thinking what to make of this site yesterday until, unable to make up my mind, I decided to go somewhere else.
Now here I am again confronting the same thing – what to make of my Blog-site. I was thinking of devoting this place to farming and for uses of my group–BAYAWAN VALLEY FARMERS’ ORGANIZATION- a non-partisan, non religious organization that I helped organize in late 2003. I have thought of retiring to a farm life.
In the other hand, I was thinking of using the site for my High School group –BCCHS BATCH 67, Binalbagan, Negros Occidental, Philippines. Members of this batch are in all continents – with scattered Filipinos all over the world. The group was forgotten until very recently when homecomings were begun to be held. Old acquaintances are being brought to light again. I guess people think of their old hometown and everything of the younger years when they have aged and tiring… Mga gurang na.(Feeling old now)
Also, I was thinking of using this place to rant about SOCIETY, POLITICS AND ECONOMICS. I hated Blog-sites which called themselves “progressives” and “democratic” but moderated people OUT FOR NOT EXACTLY CONFORMING TO THEIR VIEWS. I got the whole idea when I passed a place called “Don’t Block The Blog” sometime ago.
Maybe I should give everything above a corner in this place. Help!
