Digital Manila is Half A Year Old!

The year 2009 is half-year through, and so is Digital Manila!

Cheers to all the subscribers, readers, Google followers, lurkers, and friends. Thank you for all your support for our published articles and blogs.

The Half-year That Was

It is of great honor, that albeit Digital Manila is only half a year old and still using a default template :) , it has already gained a small number of following. Within this limited amount of time, it was also able to attain a Google Pagerank 4 ; hand-in-hand with

It was also fortunate to chalk up a few vote of confidence as well from some fellow bloggers as a nominee in this year’s Top 10 Emerging Influential Blogs for 2009 organized by Philippine Internet advocate Ms. Janette Toral.

I'd like to take this opportunity as well to thank Pinoy Parazzi and The Sweet Life of QTV. The former for entrusting Digital Manila a participating section in their paper's 'Blogster' column. It's our first stint writing for print and in Tagalog at that! The latter for featuring this blog in their television show. Moreover, to institutions we have worked together with such as Smart's Sandbox, Globe One Youth Project (from where the photo came from), Geiser Maclang,, and Campaigns Public Relations, Inc.

My gratitude extends to you again, for accepting the mix-magazine-type of features and articles in this blog covering Events, Technology, Gadgets, Movie Reviews, Advocacies, and more. In summary, it covers "a wide array of happenings in and about the metro; from Manila hip events to whatever is new and fascinating".
