I think this is one development that makes blogging very special in 2007. It proves that you don't have to be based in Manila (sometimes referred to as the "imperial" one) to succeed and gain following. Although I'm not sure if I met Sel before, what I could note about him includes:
- He is very active in joining online writing or blogging activities. He joined two writing projects that I've organized and that is when I get to visit his site regularly.
- He interacts with other bloggers, not only locally but internationally.
- He has more or less a dozen blogs and participates in revenue generating programs actively.
- He also believes in link love and does a lot of free banner exchange to reviews continuously with his readers.
