This Week's Blog Earnings

If last week I made Php9,7++, this week is only Php6,+++. I guess it's because of a number of reasons.

First of all, I was out of the house a lot of times last week. I was busy with getting my mom in law's money for her plane ticket to Hawaii, busy going to the US Embassy for her interview, and busy shopping for a suitcase to pack all of her things in, not to mention grocery shopping.

But in all fairness, I think that making Php6,+++ is OK. First of all, the only investment I make is electricity. Since I am on my laptop most of the time, I rarely consume electricity. In fact, our light bill didn't even go up by Php100 when I got the laptop. Our electric bill has always been Php2,+++ and it's still the same.

I wanted to take a screenshot as I have been doing in FaceBook, but since I am not withdrawing funds until next week, I won't be able to do so.

Best of Time – Where Time Lasts Forever

Since a lot of my family member's birthdays plus the holidays are coming up soon, I have been browsing several web sites already, getting gift ideas and maybe do an extra early shopping for them.

As my father has a passion for Rolex watches, I came across this site called The site actually sells genuine Rolex watches, but they sell it as a discounted/less price. At the same time, the site also sells pre-owned Rolex watches that are still in mint condition.

The Rolex watches that the site has for sale have their serial numbers, and comes with brand new genuine Rolex boxes. In case you're shopping around for the perfect gift, this gift already comes with its own packaging.

Some people may doubt the authenticity of the products being sold because they are being sold at such a cheap price. The site is actually a proud member of the Better Business Bureau so you can rest assured that all of your transactions with them will be legitimate. All of the watches also come with a 3 year warranty, as well as free shipping via FedEx. In case you are interested in making a purchase, here are the website's contact information.

Have your Family Vacation in Riviera Maya!

If you're thinking about planning a family vacation, do consider the white sand beaches of the Mexican Riviera Maya.

Hold on - the place is not just for swimming. When you go to the Riviera Maya, check in the Karisma Hotels where the resort offers tons of activities perfect for a family vacation. The resort serves excellent food along with an excellent level of service that makes the stay very memorable.

What's cool about the Karisma Hotels is that aside from the many things you can do while on vacation, food will not be one of your concerns. I'm not talking about simple buffets or fast food meals here - I'm talking about Gourmet Inclusive, where everything on the family vacation is included. Cooking that is at par with the standards of the best restaurants prepared in exciting ways that appeal to all of one's senses.

Karisma’s five signature resorts include: El Dorado Royale Spa Resort (adults only), El Dorado Seaside Suites (adults only), Azul Beach (family-friendly) and Azul Blue (family-friendly – opening November 2006) and Hidden Beach Resort (naturalist).

For more information, please contact Pamela Johnston at or Amanda Deveaux at or call 212-629-8445.

How to Get Jobs on oDesk

I've been a member of oDesk since May 2009 and so far, I've landed quite a number of jobs already. The first job I landed was a writing job wherein I had to review an MMORPG. I found it very easy because I love playing MMORPGs myself. After a few days, oDesk sent me my payment for that article.

The second job I landed was for a client who asked me to write travel articles of 400 words in length. After this project, the client kept sending me 5 articles to write every week. Right now, we're still working together and I'm glad I earned the trust of this provider. Payments are always on time and the work load is consistent.

I also landed a position where I am a paid blogger for a wedding site. I am tasked to make a post every day and payments are also on a weekly basis. This is still an ongoing project of mine that I am very pleased with.

After that, I received two offers promising consistent work every day. Payouts were to be completed every Saturdays Manila time through PayPal. I had to decline these offers as these are against oDesk terms. If you are hired in oDesk, you also have to receive your payments through oDesk.

Recently, I landed a job that pays $4/hour. I re-write web content for people who are renovating their websites and so far, the two pages I rewrote took me an hour and a half to complete. I'm not sure if getting paid per article is better or getting paid per hour. Lol!

I also landed another job at oDesk where it pays $4/hour, and I also re-write web content. Both these hourly jobs are still active up to now and I am just waiting for new material to be sent.

A job that pays $3 for every 400 word article also came my way. I have completed only 1 article since I was only given one topic to start with. I received positive feedback with the job and I am looking forward to more.

Aside from these jobs, a paid blogging job I've had for almost 3 years is still ongoing. I write one post a week for 21 music blogs and I'm very, very happy with that job. For the last 3 years, payments were never a problem and the guy I write for is a great person to say the least.

If you guys want to try your hand out at landing jobs on oDesk, I'll be more than happy to help. One tip I can give you guys is to make your profile as complete as possible. Buyers won't be interested in hiring providers like you and me when there is barely anything on our profiles to read, right?

On Web Hosting Reviews

I have been seriously giving some thought to getting a domain of my own. I feel that my own .com or .net sounds right to my ears, and I've already thought of the name of my domain.

But like a lot of people, I don't know a lot of good domains and the only ones I know are those Yahoo! domains and Google domains. For me, webhosting is something new and something I didn't know much about.

For other bloggers like me who are looking for a new web hosting solution, a site called Web Hosting Reviews has saved newbies like us from the hassle of having to choose which web hosting provider to choose from. The site gives important feedback and reviews on different web hosting services as well as the pros and cons (if any) that any person who would want to have their own website should know.

Also, I was reading up on their very useful article entitled Top 5 Affordable Registrars in 2009. It pretty much addressed my concerns about which domain provider to go to, as well as a comparison of all the leading domain providers out there who can cater to people who are on a budget like me.

Goodbye Cory Aquino

The Philippines mourns the death of former president Corazon Aquino who passed away today due to cardiopulmonary arrest due to complications of her colon cancer.

She made history by being the first female president of the Philippines and also the first female president in the whole of Asia.

May this brave woman who changed the course of history in the Philippines, its government, and its economy rest in peace.

12 Days to Go

It's officially 12 days before my birthday when I turn 26. I am not excited, lol! I'm only 4 years away till I turn 30!!! OMG!!!

Oh well, whenever I look back at the life I've led, I have no regrets. I have 2 amazing kids, an awesome husband, and a life that's far less than ordinary. My life is not perfect and I too am not perfect, but I wouldn't have things any other way.

There are times when problems arise or when money is short or when we get sick, but hey, who doesn't? With the family I have, I don't think there's any problem we can't overcome.

So as I sit back and count the days when I turn 26, I look back with a smile. I wonder when wrinkles first show up? Lol!
