The Young Filipino Historian: Second State of the Blog Address
It has to be recalled why the annual address has been delivered every October of the year. From December 2012 until September 2014, this history blog received only a total of 1,088 views. On October 4, 2014, The Young Filipino Historian (TYFH) was revived with the President Forever series. After 17 months of inactivity, it also marked the beginning of a new era of restoration and emergence for this history blog. The task was not easy, and this blog focuses on a discipline that is not so much popular in the Philippines. There is also competition presented by older and better organized, although usually trivialized, history blogs. Still, while the situation seemed bleak, the campaign towards restoration was on. This is where our story begins.
From December 2012 until September 2014, a monthly average of 52 views were earned by this blog. For the month of October, it is only expected that more or less 100 views be recorded for this blog. Even this is a dismal output in blogger standards to date. Where has the blog come to in 2016?
