I wouldn’t have made it past 2009 which much vigor and enthusiasm without the exemplary contributions of the people that have been part of this blog in one way or the other but nonetheless they are all valued and appreciated.

Kicking off this list of Thank You’s is for the great minds that have contributed their thoughts and ideas on some of the most commented posts on this blog and I can’t thank them enough for their interest in reading and sharing what’s on their mind.

First off, I want to recognize a few great bloggers for their wonderful insights. Ching Ya who happened to share her ideas thrice on this blog on different occasions. You can find her online on her social media tracker blog every now and then.

Joel Moss Levinson who came here when I posted a video contest about F1 in Singapore. He blogs about video contests most of the time and his journey through highs and lows.

Nathaniel Ong, who’s my only Pinoy (slang term for Filipino) avid commenter. We met during the WordCamp in September 2008. He’s also a web developer. Catch him and he’s random views about local stuff and everything in between.

My favorite blogger John Sullivan has landed here first time when I created a post about dofollow and my big switch. The first blogger I’ve made friends with and wrote a guest post for. We sometimes chat on Facebook and his Potpoliticking rants are straightforward and insightful.

Arafat Hossain Piyada crossed over with 12 nicely thought about comments and his worthy tips are massive enough to miss. I couldn’t thank enough this guy for hooking up my giveaway on a separate blog post he created. Go ahead and check this guy out. He’s cool too.

James Moralde is the second highest commenter on this blog worth the mention. James had been consistent with his comments and he’s very keen to the details of the posts that I sometimes have to think deep before I respond. You can find James’ random thoughts very neat and spicy. He’s one of those new breed of bloggers worth networking with.

Sire, the Aussie blogger from Wassup blog, finished 2009 on top spot with 30 great and personal comments you can’t discount. He really deserves applause and I genuinely appreciate his continued patronage.

The rest of the guys who are actually active commenters are David, Amir, Bill from, John Samuel from blogorbrowse, Jack from, Charles from, Taufiq Hassan from, Mack from, and Richard Friedman from

The success of my recently concluded New Year giveaway wouldn’t be possible also without the support from my Social Spark buddies namely Mommy Riza from, Mcangeli from, and Lady Ambrosia Jefferson from

I would also like to thank the sponsors that made the giveaway possible as well as the participants who joined. See the list of winners here and some lame sponsor dragging this blog down.

I wish to see you all again this year hopefully. I’m planning to make some changes on this blog however this blog remains “dofollow” but there would some twist.

Happy New Year to all and from the bottom of my heart,

Thank you!

  1. Hey Math, your description of me and my blog is very flattering, if I could blush, I’d be red all over. Thanks buddy for the mention here.

    I also can’t help but be amused at how you made a ‘Martian’ more pinoy than a ‘Moralde’ when you said he’s the only pinoy commenter in your blog. 🙂

    If I’m not mistaken, I may have met the Filipino blogger you mentioned. I think a common friend of ours introduced us to each other when our friend gave a tutorial on essay writing. But I digress. I like anyone showing their appreciation or gratitude to anyone. I like it.

  5. Mathdelane says:

    I’m not sure who’s the Filipino blogger you’re talking about. For me, it’s just part of being human to recognize good deeds.

  6. Mathdelane says:

    You’re welcome John! Thank you for the friendship.

    Sorry for the late, Happy New Year buddy. I’m little surprise after seeing my name, it is such a small period of time we reach each other but really a great time. Wish you huge success through out this year and beyond.
