Mutiny Philippines: Andres Novales and his attempt at empire
Independence Day in the Philippines is near this year and this is exhibited by the many flags and tricolors waving in many establishments nationwide. This will be the nation's 117th Independence Day (Does the number ring a bell, or rather, a police siren?). However, it must not pass our attention that in 1823, 75 years and 10 days before our own Independence Day, Andres Novales and a force of around 800 soldiers declared independence not in Kawit, Cavite but in Manila.

Goodbye, Alibata? Quo vadis, Baybayin?
Recently, the Komisyon sa Wikang Filipino (Commission on the Philippine Language) released Virgilio Almario's article disproving that the ancient Filipino script is called Alibata. What is being pushed is Baybayin, and the article went as far as lambasting lack of media coverage on the issue, as well as preaching a "cleansing" of DepEd (Department of Education) staff from Alibata. It was as if Alibata was a curse to be driven away.

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!
