I used to respond to blog comments faithfully until all those spam comments started flooding my box — this, despite the moderation function being on. But a few days ago I heard from Chelo of Home and Bahay who had chanced upon my Art Journal Every Day page where I put my entries as they come (when they come.. ha!)
So Chelo wrote:
WoW! These are great! You are indeed very artistic I came across your blog while searching for “pinay blogger american”. Yep. Too much time on my hands (and the laundry piles away) haha. Anyway, just wanted to let you know I really liked these. Are they for sale?
And the Pinay New Yorker says:
Nope, Chelo.. they’re not.. but if you go to the Flickr group we have, you’ll see that there are REAL artists there who sell their works.. =) Thanks for stopping by.
It is always refreshing to hear from a fellow Pinay whether from here or back home, because it tells me other people are actually walking into my corner of the blogsphere somehow. =) I like the blog conversations that go on between me and my readers when it happens — in private or in the comment box, although I still stick to my main assertion that I blog for self expression, and not really for anyone else’s benefit. If, by some chance, someone finds the same fulfillment in reading my posts like I do when I go blog hopping and I learn something new, then well and good.
Thanks again, Chelo.
