Vote for us!

I am often questioned, “why do I blog“? Well, personally, I find it to be very nurturing, a form of my stress-reliever and a hobby. But penning just these reasons aren’t enough. As I’ve mentioned in the about-us page, blogging is one of the most essential tool of communication with our families back home. It is often used to chronology our travels or daily rants for the ease of our family’s to keep abreast of our activities.

Ever since I was introduced to the blogging world, I’ve discovered many hidden gems. Some of their writings are based on fiction, comedy, personal rants, politics, social and much more. The possibilities are endless. One of my favorite blogger is Reema, from My Random Thoughts. Not only because she has recently bestowed the immaculate Addicting Blog Award to Chatterbox, but the way she manages to make blogging look so simple and exciting. She rants about her daily life as a college professor, a M.E. student, friend, daughter and a sister. Her blog carries multiple topics and tones. An array of spices for different moods, I’d say :) Head over to Random Thoughts and get to know Reema your self :)

Thanks Solilo :) Appreciate it so much when I am able to solve any technical problems pertaining to the website. The theme I am currently using is called “Thesis” and it’s a paid, great theme! I would blog about my experience purchasing this theme and the workings behind my current blog look. I am sure with Thesis, the smooth-browsing experience would continue for you in the future :)

Kiran,
Thank you so much for this lovely award. Really honored to be enlisted with other great bloggers. Sometimes I really do miss my personal blogging, the ranting and sharing. ha.. well, maybe someday I’ll have a blog designed just for that. Until then, may Social @ Blogging Tracker continue to have your support. ^^

You’re welcome Ching Ya! Whether it’s personal or technical, blogging shouldn’t be an obligation. Though my blog focuses on my personal rants, I am glad to have discovered your blog that has taught me the technical aspects of the blogging and Net world. You have my continued support for sure :)

Strangely cluttered blog you have here. Mind clearing up a few items for the mentally stable, divinely elevated readers?

Welcome to Chatterbox, TS :) And thanks for your observations. If this theme looks cluttered to you, I cannot imagine your thoughts on my previously “cluttered” themes ;) I am still modifying this theme and feel free to voice your opinions on areas that needs improvement. I am happy with the progress, by far :)
