Yay! First 280,000 Visits!

I admit. I haven’t been blogging for more than a quarter of a year. ¬†I had been busy. Although it’s not an excuse. But I was pleasantly distracted by other equally important matters… matters that have not deviated from my primary mission of helping the deaf. ūüôā

We were able to put up a new business for the deaf which are going through birth pains. But all of these are worth it.

There were times that I want to at least shut myself out of being involved with the deaf. Sure there are great times, and there are greater times. But there are more bad times and sometimes even worst. However you might view things, I accept that this is a fact of life.

Not that there are no ripples of activities involving the deaf and the Deaf here in the Philippines. One significant event happened last March when WFP President Collin Allen visited the Philippines and talked about Deaf Rights. Many Filipino Deaf leaders participated in this once-in-a-lifetime event.

Still today, I celebrate my 280,000th visitors since I started blogging in 2008! Hooray! Actually it’s already 281,337 visitors. I just missed blogging it when the number was reached.

My WordPress dashboard says that I have 375 posts, 23 categories and 761 tags. It also says that I have 312 Blog Followers, 52 Comment Followers and 761 Facebook Followers.

My top post remained Former Isabela Governor Grace Padaca while my most commented post is about my retrospect on Philippine Deaf Education.

Thank you very very much dear readers for being patient with me! Thank you too to WordPress, the most wonderful blogging platform ever! On to my another milestone, 300,000th visitors! ūüôā

Since my last¬†Yay! post in¬†November 11¬†or four months ago, I was able to blog thirty three times. My top referrer is now Google search followed closely by¬†Deafread.com¬†and a far third by WordPress tags, fourth by¬†Facebook, fifth from our school’s official¬†website¬†and sixth from deafvideo.tv. This is probably because I was able to post ten video logs.

My top search engine term remains the Deaf Icon Marlee Matlin followed by “Dinig Sana Kita“, a Filipino movie about being deaf, Heather Whitestone and Filipino Sign Language . My most popular blog post is still about the¬†most popular Filipino Person With Disability, ex-governor Grace Padaca¬†while my most popular video log post (vlog) is about the¬†Philippine National Anthem in Filipino Sign Language.

Wow! I reached 160,000th visitors after nearly one-half year! That’s too long! ūüė¶

Since my last Yay! post in December 21, I was only able to blog twenty times. Within these months, I received the second (April with 70) and third (May with 76) lowest average daily visits per month.

Not that I don’t have anything to blog during these times. It’s just that I have no time blogging. These months were the busiest as far as travelling and activities are concerned. In January, I participated in disability related workshop in Ilolio City with an awesome sidetrip in Boracay. In February to March, we were all extremely on the move literally, because our¬†school for the deaf¬†transferred to a bigger and permanent home in San Mateo, Rizal. Also during those months, we were able to conduct sign language training to officials and employees of Monde Nissin Corporation. I was also truly grateful that they accepted eight or our deaf alumni for work.

I scheduled my provincial Home Visits during summer months because for the first time in the history of MCCID, many of our deaf students live outside Metro Manila. In April, together with Deaf Trainor Jerome, we went to the island of Samar to spend our Holy Week web design work and sign language training. Then we visited one of our deaf students in Leyte. Towards the end of April, we again had a one week marathon visit to our deaf students in Isabela. By May, we again spent our days visiting deaf students in Nueva Ecija, Pangasinan, Albay and Sorsogon. We also conducted a three-day health camp for our Pampanga deaf students held in Baguio City. See, I was so busy to blog.:-(

Anyway, my blog now has a total of 252 posts with 653 approved comments and 559 tags. My top referrer is still Deafread.com followed by WordPress direct visits to home page and third by Facebook. My most popular blog post is still about the most popular Filipino Person With Disability, ex-governor Grace Padaca while my most popular video log post (vlog) is about the Philippine National Anthem in Filipino Sign Language.

Thank you very much to my dear readers for staying patient with me! Now, on to my first 180,000th visitors hopefully not for another half-year! ūüôā
