Tunay na lalake is no more. Last Saturday, October 17, the macho men of TNL posted its farewell five-word entry. [firstpara] Entitled, "Paalam, baby," it went on to say goodbye the shortest way possible: "It's not you. It's me."
The blog's shut down was not wholly unexpected. In the September issue of FHM, Palanca-award winning writer and TNL blog author Norman Wilwayco told us the end was inevitable.
"Hindi naman puwedeng forever ang TNL, saka wala na, na-strech ko na yung joke na yun. For three and a half months, wala akong ginawa kundi isipin yung susunod na ipo-post."
While techie calls it "a sad, sad day for the Filipino blogosphere," Wilwayco's announcement of his decision to end TNL came with a hint of something new. In the said interview, Wilwayco shares that "may niluluto kaming bago: In the House of Abraham, blog ni Abraham, yun yung pinakawasak sa lahat."
So, at least there's something new to look forward to.
Also, something new to look forward to: Something new on FHM Blogs. Stay tuned, boys and what girls we have as readers. We're about unveil, unleash, and release something that will most certainly fill in your TNL needs. Stay tuned.
