This is another update after a year, ha ha.
Just keeping you on the loop, to and let you know of the latest development from this blogger who own this blog before it moved to a new domain.
This update is just quick, promise:
- Sonnie’s Porch new home, in case you are not aware yet is www.sesantos.com.ph and renamed to Sonnie Santos. This is home to the blogger’s personal reflections and lessons in life.
- He spearheaded a cyber wellness advocacy in the Philippines and started Web Safety Philippines. Just recently, GMA 7 Network embraced his advocacy and launched think before you click campaign.
- At the start of the year, he started his own business. Because he believe that a changed mindset can lead to a changed behavior, he started WSPH Training and Consultancy Services and offer values based but tech glazed training services.
