About

TXM8S is my online repository of SMS messages that I receive from my friends from my three mobile phones. (Yes, I do have three subscriber lines. Crazy, right?) Sometimes I do compose messages to send to them hoping to inspire their day, but oftentimes it's them who are more crazy with forwarding inspiring and funny quotes that make my day.

It is, however, unfortunate that I do not have much means to forward messages each and every single day to tons of my friends all over the archipelago. Reasons may range from no credits to busy-busyhan, but I think there are other efficient and effective ways of sharing those SMS that I receive (and send) to other people without breaking the bank or hindering my day-to-day activities. Thus, this blog was born!

You can find that most of my post nowadays are in a weekly basis. Before, I was a "trigger happy" poster like almost every other day there's a new set of messages; now, I reduced the volume and only posts for, like, once a week, every Saturday if you want to be specific with it. And, I intend to keep it that way.

I hope you like what I do because I really, really do (^_^).

FAQs

Why not TXM8S.com?
I don't intend to get a domain name for this blog as of the moment. Hari po kasi ako ng kakuriputan. I'm also content with getting freebies. You know what they say--great things in life are libre!

Why make another site that aggregates text messages?
In my defense, I didn't know that there are blogs that also aggregates text messages sent and received by Filipinos. Now that I do know about it, I think the answer to that is because it's a really fun thing for me to do: you share your passion to the world and, somehow, in one way or another, you have helped your readers in brightening up their day. It's like a gift or a happy project even.

Why the cute layout?
I consider this blog of mine as a present and I wanted the design to reflect as if it is one. The extra trimmings here and there are an added bonus. Gifts should be well-thought of when presented, me thinks.

Why do you have advertisements?
Four words, dear: it pays the bills.
