U-BLOG PROFILES: Xprosaic's World

The time I decided to come out and meet fellow bloggers last year was with personal-humor bloggers. A life changing moment for me. I have stopped myself from engaging in eyeballs (eb) in the past for many reasons. After the first meeting in summer of 2010, I never stopped. To see the people behind the blogs you read face to face is such an awesome experience. It might not be pleasant all the time, but still fascinating.

Fast forward more than a year later, the blogging community in the Philippines has exploded and evolved. Currently, I am a member of so many blogger groups in facebook. Pinoy Bloggers, Pinoy Travel Bloggers, Photobloggers Philippines, Team West Pangasinan and U-Blog to name a few. That means my email gets flooded with notifications everyday and these notifications has been a way of life for me.

In terms of eyeballs these days, I think no group is more active than the members of U-Blog. What do you expect, these are mostly personal bloggers and weather online or offline, these people are intimate and it shows. I occasionally go out with them and I really enjoy it.

The latest of which was 2 months ago when a blogger from davao/Mindanao came to Manila for an official business (kuno) His name, Xprosaic.



U_blog
XPROSAIC is probably the most secretive non-anonymous blogger that I know of. If you read his blog, his pictures are all over the place. He would tell you about his latest travel exploits and other personal stuff but the longer you stay on his website, the more you realize that those things don't touch even the surface of who he really is.

My point is, we don't even know his real name!!!! He would not tell. Why? Because he doesn't want us to know his work. Why? I don't know. That's what we tried hard to find out the night we went out to dine and drink ---to no avail. He simply wouldn't say it..Bottles of Tanduay Ice didn't ahve any effect at all. We thought it would loosen his tongue a bit but still futile.

All he gave us were answers which made us confused. The wittiness of Salbe backed up by her charm and the cleverness of Yanah all failed. They didn't even manage to squeeze an answer as to what his work is.But I have a little secret. I know his real name and his work.hahaha


Thanks to social networks. No, it's not facebook.He just opened a facebook account a week after we met in Manila. And he is not using his real name there. He simply calls himself Xprosaic Ako in facebook. Weird right?

But it doesn't matter. In blogging we learn to respect if the person want's to stay private.....so what we did is that we just focused our attention on each other. We started making fun of each other instead.Naging loveteams ang trip.hahaha 

LOVE TEAM #1
Rico-Salbe
pusangkalye-1-2347
para namang magkapatid lang sa pananampalataya eh!!!.:D
LOVETEAM #2
Yanah-Xprosaic
pusangkalye-1-2342
parang biological twins lang naman!!!hahaha
LOVETEAM #3
Bino-Xprosaic. hahaha
pusangkalye-1-2348
ito pwede!!!!!hahaha.kidding'

THE LOVETEAM of the NIGHT!!!

Actually, sila ang salarin. They started the loveteam thing. And I was convinced. It looks authentic. I think you agree with me when you see the photos below. I am a gregarious person so I easily fell into it that night. Two months later, I don't know the real score anymore. lols. Hmmmm, yeah, ma-follow-up nga kay Bino to. Naconfuse ako bigla what really happened that night. Was it all joke Bino or there's more to it?hahaha
pusangkalye-1-2336
Madz and Bino...FTW!!!!
pusangkalye-1-2340
Whatever it is, basta love love love tama Bino?

Going back to the main person featured in this post. Xprosaic.There, about privacy? We all have reasons why we blog and yet keep our lives public. While I admire peopel who are very vocal and open in their blogs, I also respect those who keep their personal life a secret. And about eb's, we want to meet people also for many reasons. It's not to say that we want to be intimate all the time, sometimes, the fact that you are in a place together and you share simple chitchats and good laughter is already enough. While Xprosiac might have been reserved even during the first meeting, we still appreciate him being around wanting to see us in person. Sana nga lang next time medyo mag-open narin nang kaunti if not 1st and last na talaga to!!!hahaha
pusangkalye-1-2344
Time pass and things changed. Mukhang ibang-iba na anamn sinabi ko dito don sa mga realizations ko last eb with some bloggers.hahaha.

Anyhow, that's all I can say for now. I wanna leave it there coz I still have to type something on the facebook wall of Xprosaic. Mumurahin ko lang kasi the last time I opened his blog, a notification says.......

""This blog is open to invited readers only"". ampotah talaga!!!lols
