They Use to Visit my Blog

I've been blogging since 2005 (skip that if you've already read about it here, many times). Yes, it started with Friendster - did you also try blogging with them? LOL.

Two years later, I discovered Blogspot/Blogger. And so this blog was born.

That time, I didn't know anything about the blogosphere yet, terms like "x-links" were all jargon to me. But within weeks, I started adding people in my side bar - check it out, the very long list is still there.

I became a regular visitor to these blogs, leaving comments on any topic that I find interesting. In return, they've visited and commented on my blog too. The exchanged of visits and comments went on for about two years. After that, only a few remained. Perhaps, everyone has got a good number of followers already, so we they don't need to blog hop anymore.

This post is dedicated to all those who have been here before, and vanished...

Of course, Honney, Aajao, Dong Ho, Ronnie, Reyn, Reyna Elena, Doc Ced and Pusa are excluded as I know you still visit my blog once in a while (after all these years)! Hehe.
