The first

   It's been a year. Many things have happened to me. I learned lots of things, meet new friends, travel places I never been to and discover what I really want. I learn to know myself, what are my skills and talents, my capabilities, strengths and weaknesses and my goal(s) in life.

   My first entry I posted on my blog was a product of frustration. A frustration that eventually leads to enlightenment. As expected, the first blogpost, was about a job fair conducted by SM City GenSan at Lagao Gym. That time I was a fresh graduate from college and I am excited to experience the "real world". But my excitement turned into repulsion. I witnessed the amalgamation of anger, desperation, frustration and false hope. I had an idea about what the real world may look but I never anticipated the impact to me (consciously and subconsciously). That's why I blogged about it to release what I felt that time.

   Since that moment, I blog about issues that the mainstream media would never or ignore to tackle. I expose myself to different things; I learn to socialize to different people with unique backgrounds; and travel places with unusual set up. Just to understand the things that are vague to me. As my journey continues, I learn to have a positive outlook in life. That's why I also blog about the good things in life.

  Obviously my blog belongs to the category of personal blogging. I chose this genre because it is quite convenient and easy to maintain. Unlike travel, tech, food, magazine or journalistic type, personal blog has a limited budget and I am comfortable with it. As you notice, Yadu Karu's Blog tackles about Mindanao specifically SOCCSKSARGEN area --- its issues, places, latest events and happenings, and other things that are worth blogging. It also features book reviews since I like books; film reviews/analysis because I have a natural inclination for it; and critical analysis of popular culture --- local or international.

   I would not be in this blogging career without the help and support of:

My parents - I would like to thank them for being supportive to me. I am thankful they are supportive and understanding.  

"Juana Yamamomo" - Thank you also to my sister for believing in me. She  is very supportive and a good financier to some of my travels.

Avel Manansala - Thank you Sir Avel for accepting me to be a part of SOCCSKSARGEN BLOGGERS. I really appreciate it and I am thankful that you are one of my "bosses" and mentors in blogging.

Hector Miñoza - Thank you Sir for the pieces of advice you impart with me. I also consider you as one of my mentors and career councilors. 

Orman Manansala - I also thank Sir Orman and the other three (forget their names) for their poster of Tuna Fest 2011. I would never discover the SOCCSKSARGEN Bloggers without it. Thank you.

To my fellow SOX BLOGGERS - Thank you very much! I have learned a lot form you all and still learning.

To my fellow Bloggers- Thank you also to my fellow bloggers that I've met in online and offline world. They know who they are.

To my supportive friends- Thank you for supporting me. Keep reading!

To my avid readers of Yadu Karu's Blog - Thank you very much, I really appreciate all the emails, chat, subscribe, share and tweet. Thank you. Keep reading! 

PS - I supposed to plan a give-away sort of gimmick for my blog's first anniversary. But it is too early to do that. So I just blog about it.

Thank you!
