You might be thinking that I'm reversing my stand in the Buy Pinoy Experiment article that became far and away my most popular blog post. Nope, I'm not. "Check out the imported stuff!" is about something else altogether. If you're a subscriber or follower of this blog, you were likely swamped by all these new posts dated around early this year or even 2010. My apologies, and I will explain why that happened.
Before starting Lessons Of A Dad, I maintained a personal blog on Wordpress. It was basically a spiritual journal and an online dairy of the goings on of my life and the lives of the Alado family household. Not wanting to do two blogs at the same time, I stopped this personal blog when I started Lessons Of A Dad.
Well, I figured out how to import those old Wordpress blog entries into Lessons of A Dad…and I published (or should I say, re-published) a whole lot of them. So this explains why some of you were flooded by notifications of a dozen blogs or so, and many of them have topics that are strangely out of sync, talking about Christmas and stuff.
Allow me to give a brief description on some of these imported blogs of the past. Some of them are still relevant reads many months after they’ve been first published.
