Life in the Fast Lane

A TRIATHLETE'S MULTISPORT ADVENTURES, TRAVELS, RANDOM MUSINGS, AND CHRONICLES OF HER OTHERWISE ORDINARY LIFE

Pleasant Surprise

By 2:44 PM , , , , , , , ,

When I started this blog, I didn't expect people to really read it (except for my family members and dearest friends — I think they didn't have much of a choice).

Honestly, I was just happy to own a little spot on the worldwide web: it was a place where I could write about my thoughts and feelings, and post my photos and occasional artworks.

One of my favorite posts, though, was my take on the "Date A Girl" series (there's a "Date a Girl" for almost every verb out there). Since, at the time, I realized there was nothing about Facebook, I came up with a version for that: http://www.tinaaraneta.com/2012/06/date-girl-whos-on-facebook.html.

I was surprised to find out, though, that a number of people enjoyed reading and sharing it. But that was months ago (June, to be exact) so I had forgotten about it.

Until today when Cai, one of my longtime blogging friends, told me that she had seen a link to that particular entry in a page of Mabuhay magazine (the in-flight magazine of Philippine Airlines).

My inner dork did a happy dance, knowing that something I had written had been published — not entirely, but somewhat. Who knows? This may lead to so many writing-related possibilities in the future, right?

In the meantime, check out the August issue (there are only two days left, though) of Mabuhay magazine and read "Date A Girl Who Travels", as well as the other "Date A Girl" links on the sidebar.

Enjoy!

A closer look at the sidebar and you'll see mine! Whoo-hoo!

  1. I gave those links to Mabuhay (including yours) because they asked me for related blog posts. I chose the posts which acknowledged and linked back to mine :)
