New here!
Posted on

It took me seven months to get here!
In June, I started to meet up with all kinds of web geeks and designers in order to get out of Livejournal and move into my own domain.
That’s because sometime last year, someone tried to sabotage me and report to LJ that I was posting ads on my site.
LJ suspended me for about six hours. At that point I was ready to give up bloggingβ€”after 3,000 entries and six years of work.
But God was on my side, I prayed and my blog was back up in the morning.
Jeroen and I decided that in order for my blog to generate income, I would have to take my business elsewhere.
That leads to this site and there are tons to thankβ€”in no particular order:

Thanks to Daphne Paez for believing in me and gifting me chuvaness.com on my birthday.
To Mich Dulce who got me started on Livejournal and Lia Bulaong for inviting me.
Ria Vallesteros and Lauren Dado, who inspired me to start blogging in 2000.

On the design front, I have to thank Takatoshi Kimachi and Jason Jaring of Golden Eye Creative for designing the first drafts of this blog.
AJ Dimarucot for the wonderful logo!
Gerome Vizmanos and CΓ©sar Perrin of nHaus for hours of work and guidance;
Van Porciuncula of LIbelle Creative for doing a lot of the back-end work.
For bringing everything to life, huge thanks to Yodel Pe and Mark Bautista of Kuni Philippines.

Thanks to the continued support of Bench, Stratworks, HP, Jollibee, Visions & Expressions, Stores Specialists Inc., Manprom, Sky Broadband, Bayantel, Globe Telecom, Nokia, Sony Ericsson, Kamiseta, Tita Virgie Ramos of Swatch, Tickles, Pepper Lunch, Air & Odor Management; Millet Mananquil and the Philippine Star’s On The Radar team, including Jojo Gamboa; Supreme, Samsung and Preview for honoring me with awards; and to Spark, Homestyle and Plant magazines for putting a shy girl on their covers.

Finally, I am grateful to my cheering squadβ€”Jeroen van Straten and my entire household, my Dad and the Thursday group, Grace Velasco, Jude Mancuyas, Jay Abalos, Keri Zamora, Ana Zamora, Kathy Moran, Ginggay dela Merced, Harold Geronimo, Pia Magalona, and Cedric Cid for their love and patience; to my readers, the Chuvaness Army, and most of all, to God for all the blessings.

    Hi Ms. Cecille! I just want to congratulated you for launching your own url/website πŸ™‚ I want you to know that eversince my friend Lisette told me about your website, a few reads here and there got me instantly hooked to it. You sure do have a gift for use of words and story telling. Too bad I’m not in Manila but I really want to participate in your games/contests most of the time. Well, if God willing I go home next year, I wanna try Pepper Lunch! πŸ™‚ Btw, I saw you thanking a certain Cedric Cid in your above post. I was just wondering if you’re referring to the same Cedric Cid I know who lives here in Burbank, CA and whose mom Mrs. Virginia Cid is a known entrepreneur in Ilocos (5 sisters mall)?

    Also, your post ID CVS is cool…but I kinda associate it with the pharmacy over here. Puwede kaya CVN na lang para Chu Va Ness? πŸ™‚

    take care and more power!

    Pia

    I just saw Brian Boys new look. Yours couldn’t be more different. Yours is more earthy and encompassing of all topics while his is more graphic and more suited for a fashion blog. I like them both! Good work Chuvanessa!
