When I Blog, I Think (My 200th Post!)

Sometime ago I received my very first award since I started blogging. This is the Thinking Blogger Award, courtesy of Gypsy and Dimaks. Thanks a lot, guys. I am truly honored. :)




I’m now returning the favor and will now bestow this award on five other people.


Here goes!


Shai Coggins – who hasn’t heard of her by now? A highly creative, awesome mom-blogger-enterpreneur. She will always be an inspiration to all bloggers out there. I serendipitously stumbled on her blog while in search of a recipe for chicken sopas. I’ve been hooked ever since. :)


Annamanila – now you are truly multiawarded! How many awards have you received already? And here’s one more! Indeed, we are so blessed to have you in our blogosphere. Truly you have a drawing power with your words.


Frances – an amazing writer, her posts are insightful and very engaging. I believe that hers is one of the top emerging blogs in the Filipino blogosphere nowadays. She recently picked up my thoughts on scientists learning to communicate effectively and expounded on it with such verve and passion in an entire post of her own.


BW – one of the unique bloggers out there who could write about anything under the sun, and engage readers to discuss IDEAS. I could never forget our interesting discussion with Dimaks about life on other planets and Carl Sagan’s philosophies. Unfortunately for us, he frequently hibernates from blogosphere to attend to his more demanding offline activities – but when he does come back, he usually does this with a vengeance. :)


And the last but not the least (oh, why do I have to give out only 5 instead of 50?):


Senor Enrique – winner of the 2007 Philippine Blog Awards for Photoblog of the Year. He truly deserves the Thinking Blogger Award, not only for the photos, but for his insightful description of people and events in Manila. Take in his luxuriously rich and vivid photos, but also don’t forget to take time to read his very perceptive observations.


Ok guys, with the exception of Annamanila, I don’t know if you’ve already been given this award before. But if you haven’t, then you know what to do. Pass it on. :)


Update: I would just like to add that this happens to be my 200th post. What an appropriate opportunity to mark the occasion. Oh boy, I never thought that I’d get this far. But…here I am! Thanks to all who’ve been patiently reading my posts. Kore kara mo yoroshiku ne. :)

    Thanks. Glad to know that you enjoy reading my posts, Herb! :)
    Brainpower? Not really. More like persistence and a lot of time on my hands, haha.

  7. niceheart says:

    Congrats, kathy. You deserve the award.

    And of course, congrats also on your 200th post. Keep on posting and making us think. :)

  8. kathy says:

    Thanks Pining! :)

  9. kathy says:

    Thanks, thanks Niceheart.
    You’re one of the very first bloggers to comment here – and wow, you’re still here! I am really grateful for that. Thanks for always dropping by! :)

  10. Frances says:

    Huwaw! Congratulations to you on your 200th post, and thanks for the award– it really caught me by surprise. Thank you so much.

    A thought just entered my mind as I checked out the other blogs you gave awards to. There are a lot of MOTHERS pala who are bloggers! Of course I also thought of ‘The D Spot,’ ‘Wifely Steps,’ ‘Midnight Mysteries,’ ‘Teacher Julie,’ ‘etc.’ (Sorry, this insight may be not be new to you but it is to me since I’m a rookie blogger.) Anyway, these blogger moms have other jobs, but motherhood really defines them and that’s really seen in the content of their blogs. Well, actually yours too.

    I haven’t exactly come across a blog by a father (not a blog by this guy who also happens to be a dad), but I wonder what’s with moms and blogs?

    Just thinking out loud 😉

  11. SexyMom says:

    truly a good list, and i read most of them!

    and CONGRATULATIONS! 200 posts is a lot.

    btw, thanks, Frances for the mention.

  12. Frances says:

    By the way, what does “Kore kara mo yoroshiku ne” mean?

  13. Belle says:

    i always enjoy reading your post Kathy! you truly deserved the award.

    and congratulations on your 200 post.

  14. bw says:

    I’m indeed honored with this award Kathy – thank you. Well, I’m back and well rested and hopefully I can blog like I used to :)

  15. annamanila says:

    How privileged I am to be blog buddies with a pINAY scientist who has the most amazing dimples and the softest heart and great facility of language, plus a humility that shines through.

    (And not to forget … also from Gagalangin. haha)

    Am not saying this because I am grateful for the award though I AM grateful for the award.

    Would like to be touched by the other bloggers that touched you .. now if I only have time. :(

  16. karmi says:

    hey kathy, continue blogging and we´ll keep on reading. hugs to aya. she´s so very cute.

  17. kathy says:

    You’re welcome Frances. You truly deserve it. 😉

    Let me hazard a guess about moms and blogs: perhaps because of their role as moms, women are endowed with extra sensitivity and insights about relationships and life in general.

    I do have a tendency to “gravitate” towards blogs by other moms – I guess our common roles enable us to connect with one another more intimately.

    Well, I guess you can verify that for yourself when you become one someday. :)

  18. kathy says:

    Roughly translated, it means, “Kind regards from hereon.” Literally it means “Treat me well also from now on.” A more polite version would be: “Kongo to mo yoroshiku onegaiitashimasu.” It means the same thing. :)

    Hmm, it does sound weird when translated to English, haha. But it is one of the most common expressions used by the Japanese.

  19. kathy says:

    Thanks SexyMom.
    Out of the millions of blogs out there that are available, we are fortunate enough to be within reach of blogs (like the ones in my short list) that are truly good reads. I’m proud of the fact that most of the people in my blogroll are Filipinos themselves. It does say something about us as a people, no?

  20. kathy says:

    Thanks Belle. :)
    The feeling is mutual – I truly enjoy reading your posts, too. Not only for your amazing gift of narration, but also for the lessons about life and helping other people.

  21. kathy says:

    WB (= welcome back), BW. I’m not sure, but I think you have already been awarded with this before. But it surely wouldn’t hurt to get another one. :)

    I’m certainly glad hear that you’re back to blogging!

  22. kathy says:

    Oh Anna, you just made me blush.
    I’m just as privileged to have you in my blogosphere. If there’s anything good that came out of this blogging craze, it’s the unique opportunity of knowing amazing people like yourself.

    I do hope that we can meet someday – maybe in our next homecoming? :)

  23. kathy says:

    Karmi, thanks a lot. Hope you’re doing fine. Any chance you can come back and visit us in Tsukuba one of these days? :)
