Abe Olandres signing in…

Hello everyone! Abe here signing in for the Blog Herald. I will be the new editor here at the Blog Herald. This is a huge challenge for me and filling in the shoes of Matt Craven and original editor/founder of TBH Duncan Riley is no easy task!

This is a bit late and I should have posted earlier and introduced myself to everyone but I have been away this week delivering blogging & podcasting workshops to NGOs and political party members here in Jakarta, Indonesia. This is just a week after my previous workshop in Islamabad, Pakistan. The transition and formal announcement of the sale of the Blog Herald was right in the middle of my travels and spotty hotel internet kept me from getting online as much as I would have wanted.

So, moving on, I’d like to post a quick introduction of myself. I’m a long time reader and big fan of the Blog Herald and I’ve also been problogging fulltime for about a year. My personal blog is at Yugatech though I am also managing several group blogs here, here and here which are mostly about the Philippines.

Lately, I’ve also been asked to contribute to local tech magazines including PC Mag Philippines.

I’d like to thank everyone here, especially the current pool of contributors, for the great work they’ve done. Thanks to Matt as well for keeping TBH in tip top shape as well as Mark for giving me the opportunity to be at the helm of The Blog Herald.

We’ve got so many things planned out for the Blog Herald but we’re still familiarizing ourselves around here. It may take some time but we want to be sure of what we’re doing and not rush things. Again, thanks to everyone for welcoming us.

    My apologies for asking this. I might be just the one who does not understand this. What is Pinoy?

  1. […] Philippine blog overlord, Abe Olandres of Yugatech and loads of other blogs has taken over management of The Blog Herald. To assist me with this new role is fellow problogger J Angelo Racoma. We have huge plans for The Blog Herald and he’s really instrumental why I accepted the assignment. The new owners of The Blog Herald have given me a whole lotta trust in running the site and steering it to the right direction. With the help of my able colleague and our current pool of bloggers at TBH (and newer ones as well), I hope to accomplish something tangible and concrete in the coming months — and yes, not disappoint the loyal readers of The Blog Herald.

  6. […] Before I start blogging regularly here, allow me to use this entry to introduce myself. I’m Markku Seguerra, another Filipino blogger just like Abe Olandres and J. Angelo Racoma. You probably haven’t heard of me, but you may have come across my personal weblog called “rebelpixel productions” over at rebelpixel.com. I’ve been writing about web design and photography for more than four years now and have coded several WordPress plugins and related applications. Reading my weblog will surely be a better way of describing me and the things I do. […]

  7. […] When Abe Olandres was appointed to the helm of the blog herald and subsequently took me in to help with management (long story—you can email me if you want to learn about it), several fellow Filipino bloggers lauded it as an accomplishment. Some considered it a “Filipino takeover” of the blogosphere. In fact, it was even covered by Inq7 on its tech pages, which is a big thing, considering inq7 is among the most popular of Philippine sites. Coverage in inq7 spikes up traffic, and is akin to being DUGG frontpage (though not on such a massive scale). […]
