3 Column Dots Template

OK, so the OC in me will not let things be.

There are spaces in between my posts when I use the 3 Column Minima template, so out of exhaustion and the fact that I have to cook lunch, I used the template I have with my other blog. So all of my images fit, and I have no more issues.

May this be the last time this week that I switch templates.

Fixed, I Think

The OC in me won over my issue about my blog's new template. I found a 3 column Minima template where the center is bigger than all of the sidebars, addressing my concern perfectly. I got all my fonts and colors arranged just the way I like them.

But now that I'm looking at the template, I noticed that there are some spacs after my blog posts, which I'm curious as to why they're there. I don't know if the spaces are showing up because I'm using FireFox or what.

I guess the OC in me will have more to think about later.

A Slight Issue

I've been browsing my blog with the new template but the OC in me just realized that my dNeero posts don't fit in this either I'll have to find a way to adjust this template's HTML or switch to a different one altogether. Or maybe even switch it back to the old one.

A New Look

At a spur of the moment thing I suddenly decided to change this blog's template to the 3 column Minima Dark one. I re-added all of my widgets, which come to think of it, wasn't that many and I didn't have such a hard time.

I've always liked the color black, and I guess this blog will just have this template for now, unless other spurs of the moments overcome me to change it again.

A New Digicam

Henry and I are raving about our new digicam...It's a GE A735 and you can read it's full product specs by clicking here. We've taken lots of pictures already, including a video of us goofing around at home. I'll try to post it as soon as we're done. I'm just glad that I finally have something to capture moments with the kids.

A New Ref

I'm raving about the new fridge we just bought. It's a Condura 2 door 7 cu ref that we bought at Abenson's. I forgot to use my Abenson Plus card when we bought it, though. :-(

The ref consumes little electricity in a 30-day period, which is one of the reasons why we chose it. Also, the previous ref we had only had 1 door, so we bought a 2 door one for a change.

This is also the first time we bought a brand new fridge, as the previous ones we had were 2nd hand. So I'm really excited as this ref is one I can really call mine.

Get Paid to Blog with Paying Post

I am excited to write about Paying Post, a site that allows advertisers to advertise on blogs and reach more audiences and also lets bloggers like me make money out of it.

I've been a member for quite some time but since I'm busy with work, my kids, and other stuff, whenever I log into Paying Post, a qualified opportunity for me has already been fully reserved.

But today is different and I am glad to write about this site. When I checked out their Open Opportunities page, there were a lot of opps available for bloggers like me and I was successful in reserving one of those.

Blog advertising is pretty simple. An advertiser goes to companies like Paying Post and requests for bloggers to write a review of their product and/or service with a certain budget in mind, and then Paying Post finds blogs that are qualified to take the opportunity. Bloggers then write about the product or service following advertiser requests - number of words, a required link, a tone of the post, etc. Paying Post reviews the post and if accepted, voila! You get paid!

If you have a blog and are thinking about submitting it to Paying Post, you can submit and verify your blog at Paying Post to make it open and qualified to receive opps from advertisers and make money from blogging as well. There are some characteristics that your blog must meet in order for it to be accepted into the system, like the age of the blog, frequency of posts and updates, and the way you write and what you write about as well.

Earning money through blogging can seem to be a daunting task, but with a little hard work, good writing skills, and sites like Paying Post, I'm sure bloggers will have a blast making money through blogging.

On Buying a Digicam

I'm not really looking for high - tech features. I just want a user - friendly digital camera with a big memory to store videos and pictures of the kids. I also just want to point the camera and shoot pictures wherever I am. I also want to be able to capture moments with my family in a clear picture quality.

So considering ease of use, megapixels, and cost, what digicam would you recommend buying?

Manny Pacquiao Wins!

Congratulations to Manny Pacquiao in winning against The Golden Boy Oscar dela Hoya. Philippine pride Manny Pacquiao defeated Oscar dela Hoya through a TKO in the highly anticipated The Dream Match. Oscar dela Hoya quit before the 9th round began.

Congrats Manny! Proud to be Pinoy!

Pacquiao - Dela Hoya Results

I am watching the boxing match that has been dubbed as The Dream Match between Manny Pacquiao and Oscar dela Hoya. There are no Pacquiao - Dela Hoya results yet, and I'm sure many people are waiting and anticipating Pacquiao - Dela Hoya results.

I'm waiting for Pacquiao - Dela Hoya results myself, and I will be updating this blog as soon as Pacquiao - Dela Hoya results are out. Again, may the best boxer win.

Pacquiao - Dela Hoya - Who Will Win?

I wish Manny Pacquiao the best of luck. But to be honest, I am a big Dela Hoya fan. They are both great boxers and I guess I'll just hold my breath like the rest of the world and wait and see who will win.

May the better boxer win.

My First Dneero Payment

I checked my email today and I was surprised to read an email notifying me that I had new PayPal funds. To my surprise, it was from Dneero, a social site that I participate in. Basically, all you need to do is answer a short survey, post the answers to your blog, and that's it! Simple, right? Your post needs to generate the required impressions in 10 days, usually around 5-7 days. You get paid through PayPal once your balance reaches $20.

Here's a screen shot of the payment I just received:

So if you guys are also looking for additional income through blogging, do try out Dneero and better yet, let me refer you so that we both earn! Just email me or leave a comment and I'll be happy to help.

Happy blogging!

Gmail Gets A New Look

I really like the new themes Gmail has. I'd like to try out all the layouts, but for this week I decided to go with the Ninja theme. Here's how it looks like:

It's a great break from the previous monotonous layout, and I seriously enjoyed checking my email with Gmail with the new theme. Before, I honestly felt like checking my email with them because I needed to, not because I wanted to. But that part's over now, as I really love the new look.

Kudos to the Gmail team who came up with these themes!

Poker Tables

Through my normal routine which is basically surfing the internet, I came across this site that sells really great Poker Tables. In my opinion, if you're really into poker, then a good table is also a good investment.

The poker tables I'm telling you about is from American Gaming supply. They have a really wide selection of poker tables and also offers free shipping within the United States and Canada. Also, they make sure that 90% of their tables are in stock at all times. Another good thing is that American Gaming Supply also offers discounts on multiple wholesale purchases done online.

When you order from American Gaming Supply, they also ship the same day or the next following business day from the time they receive your order. Also, all their poker tables are expedited after shipping. Usually, a customer receives their poker table within 1 - 5 business days. Deliveries are also guaranteed. Also, they have a good selection of poker chips and supplies.

So when you buy from American Gaming Supply, you can pretty much hit two birds with one stone - you can order a great table at a great discounted rate, get it in 5 days after ordering, and also order poker chips and supplies at the same time. What a great deal!

Raving about XoXo

I just got my new bag and wallet today from my supervisor at work. His sister sells bags, wallets, and watches online and I've ordered 3 bags, 2 wallets, and 1 watch already. It's a good thing I earned quite a lot through blogging so I'm using that to pay my items. The items aren't all mine, they're actually Christmas gifts for my mom, my sister, my mom in law, and Henry.

I did order something for myself, and they just arrived today. Here's my pink bag and wallet from XoXo.

Aren't they just adorable? And they match, too! I can't wait to start using my bag and wallet....

Sears Heroes at Home Wish Registry

Giving and sharing your blessings should be done more often. There is no right and wrong season to share your blessings and happiness, but Christmas is the best time to share. This holiday season Sears came up with their holiday program called Sears Heroes at Home Wish Registry. It's the perfect way to share your love and blessings this holiday season.

How can you help? it's really easy. Just go to Sear's website and you can make your donation online. Your donations will go to America's military families. Need I say that these guys are bearing the loneliness of being separated from their loved ones who are out keeping the country safe, facing each day apart with the thought that their loved one just might not even come home anymore?

Your donations will be turned into Sears Gift Cards that will be distributed equally and evenly among the military families that they can use for purchasing things they need. The top items our military families are in need of are kids' shoes, boy's and girl's pajamas, sweaters, pants, and other items. Just imagine, your donations can go a really long way in helping our military families. Shouldn't it be our turn to give and help those who are giving their lives for us?


24 Days till Christmas

I'm excited about Christmas, mainly because for this year, I was able to buy the gifts I wanted to give to my loved ones really early. I haven't wrapped them yet, but that part will definitely be easier compared to the buying part.

When I was a kid, I seriously through Santa was real, as there was never a Christmas Eve that I caught my parents sneaking in my gifts. My gifts were just there when I woke up. I'm not a heavy sleeper, but I just never caught them.

I'm excited for the kids as well. I'm not sure if I should just give Keisha her gift and let her choose it, or if I should just surprise her. Which approach would you think is better?
