Because of You

"Thank you for being here."



I never did imagine this little space would go this far. This Blog has remain in slumber for quite a long time since it was originally done in 2004 with a banner "Cairo's Confessions" as part of my personal website hosted in geocities. Templates of which are meticlously designed by brew.


Honestly, I never took it seriously back then. Just look at the archive, Seven post on 2004 and twelve for 2005. (lolz!) not until the last quarter of 2006. Self Studied the html codes to personally design the templates. "If I am going to make this blog active, I want me in every little detail there is and that will definitely includes the template." I told myself.


Early this year i installed a webcounter for every unique visitors (IP Address) will visit this space. Today, Hush and Listen has officially reached its first 100,000 visitors! Pretty cool really! I mean even the geovisite statistics in exiciting me readers accross the globe and I think it is safe to say that I have now covered most of the continents. Not to mention the various reviews Hush and Listen is earning from Blog Critics and bloggers alike which truly boost this author's morale to better his craft.


And add these things to the nominations for the different blog awards, that most recent of which is in the "Blogger's Choice" (thanks to Ms. Eve). Didnt actually win anything yet, but the nomination itself and being part of the finalist is more than enough to make me feel honored.


At this point, Allow me to say my sincerest gratitude to All my readers and Critics alike - Maraming Salamat po, Thank you very much, Tosha, Muchas Gracias, Merci Beacoup, Grazies...
Mwuah!

Note:

So much for the speech, now please enjoy the post under this one, "Revenue Martyrs"
A Short story still dedicated to June Pride Celebration. May it serve as an eye opener to the Mass Media (not generally of course) who have only see the LGBT community as "Revenue Martyrs"
