Let's Gil the World! :)

Whew! I finally did it. I finally put up a blog. First up, a big thank you to all my Twitter followers and friends who have encouraged me to get into blogging. I was a bit apprehensive at first (allergic kasi ako sa haters) but thanks to you guys, I now realize that I can’t keep on coming up with excuses not to do something that makes me (and I’m hoping you, too) happy.

So with that I would like to welcome you to my blog, Gil the World. Hihihi. :) It took me all weekend to come up with a name for this blog. In fairness, mahirap ah! I’d come up with something I thought was really clever (E.g. Nikkipedia. Havey diba?), I’d check if it’s available, and see that someone else named Nikki already thought of it. Sayang, men. 

My next option was “nikkigilsblog” (yes, umabot ako sa point na to). I was obviously experiencing writer’s block when I hadn’t even started writing anything yet! This called for desperate measures. So I turned to my superkaduper smart followers and friends on Twitter. 

Ahhh, the power of Twitter. Within minutes, my timeline was flooded with brilliant suggestions. Below are some of the most unique and funny suggestions. Yung iba, sobrang labo, nakakatawa! 

“HighwayToGil” by @JustinoKusinero
“theGilisalivewiththesoundofmusic” by @DrewArellano 
“thesilentGil” by @makoyrmt (hahaha, I am anything BUT silent)
“GilThereEverywhere” by @chiq2chiq
“legallynikki” by @theGEEKchic
“blognamundoGil-ika” by @iangumasing_ce
“UnitedAmericanNikkiNikki” by @alex_balite
“nikkilikili” by @COOORMELIGHT
“jackandjillwentuptheGil” by @m_josephabeto14
“NIKKIkigiGIL” by @blo_J
“magunawmanangmundoko.blogspot” by @ILOVEFRANCIZ (hahaha medyo upbeat ng konti kuya!)
“nikkalog” by @siegfredOO7
“whattheGil” by @angielovez
“cinnamon” by @real_asher15 (medyo malayo ka na ng konti girl!)
“jhannelsblog” by @goodshotsmade (natawa ako dito, I almost used it hahaha)

After reading these, I remembered my super smart and pilosopo sister who happens to work for an advertising agency! And just like that she comes up with “Gil the World”. I thought it was pretty clever. Here’s why:

1.    I have always wanted to change the world in my own little ways. I’m sure you all have at some point in your life. And blogging has become a very important tool for being catalysts for change. And for spreading laugh trip youtube videos. :p

2.   I am hoping that my entries can at least try to “heal” whatever pain you are currently going through: heartaches, broken nail, wrong hair color, insecurities, lipstick in your teeth, mean bosses, awful break outs, awful dates, awful books, or if you’ve simply had a bad day. 

3.   I am a self confessed know-it-all who enjoys shoving her beliefs down people’s throats (E.g. Hindi bakla si Keanu Reeves! Hindiiiiii!). I guess this all stems from a deep-seated desire to become a teacher. Or any other profession that includes telling other people what to do. “Teacher teacheran” was one of my most favorite games when I was younger (next to luto lutuan and tinda tindahan). Complete with imbentong lesson plan, quizzes, and record book. :)

What’s NOT here: blind items, showbiz tsismis, hifalutin words, cooking and gardening tips, horoscope, and YouTube videos of myself singing Nicki Minaj songs. 

I would also like this blog to be a venue for me to learn from you guys. Feel free to email me stories, questions, or links to silly youtube videos, etc. However minsan busy-busyhan ako. I might only be able to respond to a few, so walang magtatampo ha? :)

I am excited about this new journey we are about to take together. Who knows, we might actually “Gil” the world for real. Ika nga ni Michael Jackson, “heal the world, make it a better place for you and for me…” Yehesss, naisingit ko rin sa wakas! :)

  42. Welcome to the blogging universe, Nikki! Keep expressing your thoughts and ideas. I believe it's one of the best ways to feel alive and involved! I also just started a blog last November 2011 and still searching for an identity.

    You could also try to visit our blogs so we could all learn from each other.

Kaya pala giltheworld yung blogspot name mo, yun pala sa "Heal The World" ni MJ. Grabe, di ko naisip yun ah.
