history-ph update: Two years onwards

The Young Filipino Historian, now under the URL http://history-ph.blogspot.com/had been revived after almost 17 months of inactivity and has now reached another milestone.

From December 2012 until September 2014, there were only 1,088 page views for this site. As for the whole month of October, this site has received 472 page views. Last November, the blog had received more than 1,600 page views. That is, already triple of the total October views. This December, the blog had received almost 1,200 page views (74% of the total November views).

On December 15, the blog commemorated its second anniversary with the hashtag #TYFH2ndyear. The author is looking forward to a better year in 2015 for this emerging history blog.

Also, the official Facebook page of this history blog (like by clicking the like button at the sidebar) was launched last October 29. By November 25, the page had reached 100 likes. As of the moment, it now has more than 130 likes. Log in to your Facebook now and like the page!

Mutiny Philippines: The January Mutiny
Mutiny is a situation in which a group of people (such as sailors or soldiers) refuse to obey orders and try to take control away from the person who commands them (See Merriam-Webster definition of mutiny). Related words include insurgency, insurrection, rebellion, coup and coup d'état. In the Philippines, there is no shortage of mutinies and coups that may be tackled. This series is dedicated to that matter.

Rizal foresaw it in 1891? (Southwest monsoon special)
In the above excerpt, it is apparent that Rizal had already thought of digging a Manila version of the Suez Canal. He envisioned it as both an entrepot of consumer goods in Asia and a flood control canal. Also, once a canal was bored out from Manila to Laguna, his home province would absolutely be a developing province like Manila.

Japan's seclusion to the world and the Philippines
In 1635, the third Tokugawa shogun, Iyemitsu (Iemitsu) Tokugawa (reigned: 1623-1651), issued the Sakoku Edict of 1635. The edict enforced the restriction of Japanese migration out of the Japanese Empire and the closure of Japan's ports from international trade. Nagasaki was left open though, but only for limited Chinese and Dutch traders.

While I was before lambasted for considering website statistics as history, is statistics in itself not part of history? Also, is this not a blog that also has its own history? History, as the second oldest profession in the world, encompasses all that has happened in the past. Well, we did take note the time that Gangnam Style broke through 1 billion and 2 billion views, respectively, right? Let us make our minds open. Again, I thank you for understanding the purpose of documenting these website statistics.

I, the author, am very humbled for this warm welcome given to the restoration of this emerging history blog - The Young Filipino Historian. Also, I fervently believe that this is only the beginning the many more achievements to come for your rising history blog. Small success may this be to many, but take to mind that you are always to be entrusted with small things first.

Finally, may God provide you with many more blessings!
