About the Blog

by Tanchi | 6:48 AM in |

This blog is owned by Kristan Jan Franco, well, obviously, that's me. One way to enjoy my daily routine is to blog. Blogging is my way of expressing my feelings towards art and the society. As pro bloggers said, "Blogging expresses the person's true passion".

A New Start: When I stepped college life, I've been more matured and took things seriously when it is necessary to be serious, and later on I asked myself, why try doing a daily journal. So I decided to sign up for blogger (which is common to me than wordpress), and the blog world started to turn.

Photoblog: It happened that one of my interest is Arts, specifically photography, I was amazed by the works of the Gensan's Camera Clubbers, like, Lenard Pe, and Velasquez. I started working on my interest during my High school years, and continue to pursue it until now. That's why I post my photoshoots here for everyone to see a Mindanaoan skill and also to promote Philippines, specifically Mindanao.

From Monkey Monitor to A Southern Shutter: The blog's name started out as Monkey Monitor, thus, the blog name was born because of boredom. The blog retained its name the past 3 months, until, one of most influential bloggers these days, Batang Yagit, gave me a chance to have a domain, making my blog name A Southern Shutter.
