To say that the blogging atmosphere in this country has evolved and progressed to an ethical era would be an understatement. Amidst a few writers trying to stand out, set themselves apart from the horrible stories we have read in the past, since several weeks there has been a ruckus in the scene. A ruckus about diva bloggers.
And now it seems that Filipino social media poster site Rappler joined the ruckus, ostensibly distancing themselves from the oh-so negative crowd by asking the opinion of the most ethical and correct blogger, and social media campaign manager, the country knows: Janette Toral.
Now I will admit that I’m the first to go to events and NOT write about them, because of the simple reason that I’m not a hype machine but just somebody who decides what the heck he wants to write about. And then it doesn’t matter whether you invited me to your event and I added to your bar tab or not. Simple as that. And everyone who knows me, knows that.
I’m also that guy who tends to leave the loot bag behind, unless the people keep an eye on me and run after me, often several blocks to find me. Thanks, Tina!
But of course, I also do occasionally grab the items and will then wear the shirts received on theBobberyCast. If I like what you do, of course. Not because you gave me a shirt. And that I will do without disclosing. Be jealous already that you didn’t get a shirt. Or have tens and tens more shirts than I bothered to collect.
