The Usual Yearly Recap

2010 was a great year. 2011 will be another great year. As usual, this post is another recap of the year that was. A sequel of my yearly year-end posts. I only made 13 blog posts last year. I almost quitted blogging, but everyone knew that it was a joke. It was partly true and I really intended to quit. If it wasn’t for my friends and readers who encouraged me to continue what I started, I’m not writing this post right now.


I traveled a lot last year, visited several Asian countries for the first time. I bought a myriad of white elephants. Had a skinhead haircut (no. 3 in the barber’s code). Spent a lot, but earned a lot more. I earned more than twice than I earned in just one month last year compared to the year before last year.

I made my first font inspired by my handwritten logo and released it to the public. I gave away an Android phone and a 150,000.00-php-worth of LED Video ads. I organized a lot of fun contests and gained a lot of loyal visitors and readers, and eventually made a lot of friends.

My page rank increased from PR 4 to PR 5. My registered domains increased from 50 to 157. My server’s hardware was upgraded from a Quad-core/4GB RAM to a 16-core/24GB RAM.

I took 34,553 pictures with my Lumix LX3 and 18,510 pictures with my Lumix GF1. I uploaded less than 5% of the total pictures I took with both cameras to my online photo sharing accounts and kept the rest in my laptop. I gained 404 trophies in the Playstation Network and I’m currently level 7 with 10 Gold trophies, 49 silver trophies, and 345 bronze trophies.

I passed the Torr IQ test and became the 26th member of this selective IQ society in the whole world last November 17, 2010. I also became an official member of the International High IQ Society (I already passed their test 2 years ago, but I didn’t register to become an official member) last June 10, 2010.

Hmmmmmmmm… I think that’s all that I can share for now. Below is the recap of the 13 awesome posts I made last year! Hehe.

  2. Kahit naka 13 post ka lang, Jez, last year, mas malaki naman ang naiambag mo sa mga baguhang blogger na matuto sa pagba-blogging at kumita ng malinis na pera online. You inspired many Filipinos to become an online entrepreneur. Mabuhi ka, Jez!

  3. Kelangan naming mga bloggers ng isang Jehzeel Laurente. You’re an inspiration to us, especially kaming mga newbies s blogging. Let us celebrate life in the world of blogging because of Jehzlau Concepts. :wink:

  4. Alam mo idol, kung hindi dahil sa mga achievements mo hindi ako magiging seryoso sa pagbablog (walang halong eklabo). Dahil sayo, nakakagawa ako ng six minimum post per day, kase gusto din namin maabot yung mga narating mo.

    Kaya parang awa mo na. Huwag ka tatamarin okey!

    Kahit walang contest okey lang yun! basta wag ka lang magquit malaking blessing na yon sa amin :)

    Mabuhay ka Idol :grin:

  5. Jehz,
    halos lahat ng pa contest mo sumali ako, nakasungkit di me me ng domain. kahit hindi major prize nakukuha ko pero “ENJOY” ako as a blogger kahit di ko ta matawag sarili ko na blogger. dami pa kasi ako dapat malaman sa technicalities. pero very supportive ka para maka learn me to blog. ikaw yung backbone na nursingmania.. walang nursingmania kung walang jehzlau..walang dasuiworld kung walang jehzlau..pag mag quit ka di naman maganda ang pasok ng 2011 for us na iniinsperasyon ka..ni piso di kumikita yung blog ko pero happy and enjoy ako. di ko naman alam san patutunguhan ng blog ko..ang alam ko lang join lang ng mag join sa contest mo.. :sad: :sad: :sad: :sad: :sad: :sad: :sad: :sad:
