Signing off…

Happy new year friends! This is Calvin signing off from Pinoy Tech Blog as this will be my last post for the blog. Don’t worry, PTB will still continue to exist and provide you with relevant tech news under the management of Joey Abiog.

Back in 2005, Pinoy Tech Blog started off as a collaborative effort from a group of well-known bloggers headed by Abe Olandres of Yugatech. Unfortunately, after a few years it kinda died down until it was only Abe who posting sporadically for the site just to keep it updated.

In 2008, when I started blogging, Abe entrusted me with Pinoy Tech Blog along with Joey and Raffy to help me. We changed its design, created social media accounts, and made it grow to what it is now. I can say that looking back from what it was before, we really accomplished a lot and all the hard work paid off.

Unfortunately, now’s the time for me to let PTB go.

I just want to take this time to thank you my readers, for keeping this site worth managing and writing for. Thank you to all those who are subscribed to our social media accounts, those who made this site a part of their daily reading, and those who somewhat made PTB a community. Thank you for the questions, the comments, and the numerous grammatical corrections on my part. Hehehe.

I also would like to thank my trusty contributors who shared their insights and reviews over the years. It’s really difficult for one person to manage a site of this magnitude without any help.

There are also the brands and PR agencies who regarded PTB as a respectable tech site in the country capable of delivering insightful news and reviews for Filipinos. Thank you for trusting us. I will definitely miss covering events (mostly overseas ones), trying out the latest gadgets, and definitely mingling with friends I made in the industry.

Abe and I now entrusted PTB to Joey who will continue to run the site and make it reach new heights. Do expect some birth pains at the start but I’m sure Joey will do a great job here and even grow PTB and its community some more.

It has been a fun ride everyone. If you want to keep in touch with me, there’s still my personal blog which I will continue to maintain, or follow me on Twitter (@calvinshub) or Instagram (@calvinshub).

  16. The media for downloading has not been this quick as it is now.
    By the process, you’re reinforcing that negativity and
    attracting to yourself MORE. The vulnerability has apparently been fixed
    since interview with Russo took place, and usernames are again safe and secure.
