Journalist Malu Fernandez vs Pinoy Blogger

Mar 12, 2008 by     22 Comments    Posted under: Blogging Tips, Philippines

Journalist Malu Fernandez vs Pinoy Blogger This post might be off topic but I still want to say something about the topic. There is a new topic in the Philippine Blogosphere and it is no other than Malu Fernandez . Is it a Journalist Vs Blogger thing ?

Who is Malu Fernandez ?

She is a journalist who believes in her freedom of speech and believes that she can say anything in Public. She is a famous Buzz maker in Philippine Blogosphere. At First she made a very bad comment regarding Filipino OFW that made her popular in the net. Well actually I don’t know her, not until she make those statement last year.

So what is the Buzz ?

And now Malu Fernandez did it again by commenting about bloggers. According to her comments : ( via Connie )

The difference between a journalist and a blogger is that journalists have to adhere to certain guidelines that govern the freedom of speech. And whatever a journalist chooses to write about—be it popular or unpopular—we do not hide behind an anonymous name and are resigned to the fact that we have to take as much as we dish out.

I really agree that Journalist and bloggers are different. Because bloggers are practicing the freedom of speech. As Bloggers we don’t have Supervisors or editors to edit our write ups. Blogging is an expression of oneself. I as a blogger do not hide my identity you can always check my identity thru my about page for that matter.

But blogging, aside from Perez Hilton and the other big time bloggers (you know who you are) is for me a slacker job or a medium and pastime for lonely people to connect.

Well first of all not all blogger thinks blog as a source of income. Some blog their experience and knowledge just because they want to share their opinion in public. And some blog for fame. And Malu Fernandez is right that some blogs for monetization. Well for me I do both. I am monetizing thru different advertisers. I have to pay for hosting fee and other fee like my domain name and others blog expenses, not to mention my photography hobby.

My Opinion & Observation

I am just thinking if Malu Fernandez doesn’t have any job at Manila Standard. Will she be a blogger? I think so , because she knows how to be popular and make the blogosphere heat up 🙂 . I may say that she has a good technique and a traits of a Master Link Baiter. I agree with Abe she should be nominated as Master Link Baiter of 2008.

  • See! I even had an error — both and then referred to three things! Bwahahaha! No journalist will ever make that mistake… unless someone named Malu! 😛

    Rom’s last blog post..Why are there more females in Computer Science in UP?

  • well, I do both – write for a major daily, blog professionally and blog “just for kicks”. This Malu Fernandez simply does not know what she is talking about – if being a journalist is doing what she does, then I’d rather not be a journalist! [disclaimer: I am NOT a journalist]
