I would like to thank Mitchteryosa of When Silence Speaks for putting Home Worked on her list of Top 10 Emerging Influential Blogs of 2007.
I was surprised to say the least, so here's 'thank you very much' to say the most :-) Being on the list gave me a feeling of accomplishment, that someone, somewhere, is actually reading my blogs. I never really thought about that, neophyte me. It is a confident booster, too, for someone like me who was so unsure if I am using the right words to express my thoughts (Learning German means loosing a bit of my English, too).
It is also an exciting challenge to come up with more relevant blogs and to be more aware of my words. Also, it is an inspiration to learn more from others, too. I am just starting to learn, thus, been getting addicted to, blog hopping :-)
The root of activating my blog was of course, Pinoy Moms Network. I read an item about it in the inq7.net this May and got hooked.
I wanted to be a member and to actively participate at PMN, thus, emerged, Home Worked. I started really blogging as if I am conversing with someone, this May. I guess I have been away from the company of pinoy moms for so long. I mean, these moms are thinking like me and experiencing things like me. Whew, what a relief! I suddenly began to miss things that I have never even thought I would be missing. Such as, discussions on raising the kids, common homemaking problems, and even sharing personal experiences, the always welcome kind words and of course, the once in a while, confirmation that, indeed, (especially as an expat mama), I am not alone.
My thanks to PMN, too.
