Okay, so I'm taking archiving seriously now

When I started my career as a writer, I promised myself I'd take note of everything I wrote. I did this fanatically, keeping even press releases I wrote for the many products I got acquainted with as a marketing writer for The Philippine STAR. Of course, I had no idea my "portfolio" would mutate into an unmanageable mess of articles on whatever, from banks to beauty products to burgers to, really, whatever.

When I left The Philippine STAR three wonderful years later, I made sure to keep copies of my files, apart from hard copies of the articles. But little did I know my writing would scatter itself into wherever, as I'd eventually try my hand at freelance writing. Sometimes, I google my name and find links to pieces I never even remember writing.

The only kind of archiving I practice is that I save all my sent files in my Yahoo and Gmail accounts. (Sifting through them gets interesting when I come across passionately-typed emails to boys I loved).

So now, I've decided to, once again, use a blog to keep the articles I write for Cebu's The Freeman's entertainment section, where I have a column that usually appears twice a week. Check it out (and ignore the typos; those are my column pieces before they passed through my editor's eyes):

I'm still copy-pasting everything from June 2007, but it's up to date since 2009.

Now, I'll have to figure out how to archive the rest of my writing.
