Yehey! I have my first Filipino commenter today. It’s no less than Jehzeel Laurente, the super friendly, creative, funny and prolific creator of Jehzlau Concepts.
I can only think of two blog authors that really give me the final shove into blogging. Jehzeel is one of them. The sheer joy and enthusiasm and inspiration I find in their blogs has kept me sleepless for almost two weeks. The thought of blogging nagged at me even during the day. And so I hiked up my pants and waded in.
Most of the high profile blogs get me fired up too for their excellence, but they are high up in the clouds and out of reach. And if you’re one befuddled newbie you need all the encouragement and inside information that you can get. Jehzel has that gift of friendship – answers your email, replies when you text, even invites you on his social networks.
And to think he’s one of the top guns in Pinoy blogosphere. I’m not sucking up, mind you. Ratified.org, a web directory which ranks Pinoy blogs based on subscribers, page rank, Alexa rating and Technorati data, ranks him as No. 4 as of this writing. He had already reached the coveted first place at Ratified.org , but he got bored and lonely at the top, I guess.
He’s been featured several times in Manila Bulletin’s Blog-o-Rama. He’s got it made, but fledgling that you are, you won’t feel the difference. Because he’s a decent and unpretentious guy.
Will he give the shirt off his back to help a fellow human being? I am positive. But why settle for the shirt when you can very well ask him to donate to you his aging laptop, in the spirit of Christmas? Hahaha. After all, he’s buying this Christmas a Core 2 Duo quad, equipped with the latest strange-sounding state-of-the-art contraptions. Hehehe.
I have Jehzel as a mentor and friend. How about you – are you as lucky as I have been?If you enjoyed this post, make sure you subscribe to my RSS feed!
