My love-hate relationship (more on hate now really) with Cradle Magazine started the summer of 2008. I heeded a call for contributors for an up and coming baby magazine.
I got some writing assignments for the maiden issue (see photo above left), and was promised P2,000 per article. At that time I was coordinating with their acting editor-in-chief, Deni Rose Afinidad. Deni resigned before the magazine was ever published, and her position was taken over by Loida Yu. Loida apologized for the chaos that ensued right after Deni seemingly abandoned the project — I say seemingly because this is the impression I got from our correspondences… the fact of the matter is I do not know what happened between Deni and October Eighty Publications. And so we resumed where we left off.
