I’m officially a contributor to a great blog called WorkAwesome! This is a US-based resource on work productivity, work-life balance, management, etc. My first contribution is about conducting effective team meetings. Do check it out and make sure you leave a comment.
This is a nostalgia post so bear with me. When I was just a kid, we used to have a cuckoo clock. I remember my dad telling me that I was so fascinated with this cuckoo clock because it would make sounds every hour. (more…)
I consider myself a conservative investor. Our money (however little it may be) is kept in savings account. I have a couple of insurance and retirement policies. And I have a small amount placed in mutual funds. Lately though I’ve been thinking if I should continue this strategy or go a little more aggressive.
The whole of England is psyched with the upcoming wedding of Prince William and Catherine “Kate” Middleton on April 29, 2011. This much-anticipated wedding is seven years in the making. Their relationship started in University of St. Andrews, where they both studied.
Since then, Prince William and Kate Middleton have gone through the ups and downs typical of any young relationship, including a brief break-up in 2007. The two reconciled a few months and here they are, engaged and getting married in a few months.
But will the royal marriage of the second-in-line to the British throne and a commoner last? The divorce of Princess Diana and Prince Charles (Prince William’s parents) is still fresh in the minds of many royal watchers. The highly-controversial and much-publicized marriage was the subject of tabloids and gossip columns for several years. And even with the untimely demise of Princess Diana, the tabloids remained ruthless. How will the marriage of Prince William and Kate Middleton fare in all these?
First of all, I’d like to apologize to my readers for my long hiatus. My last post was last June 23 but some of you may have noticed the significantly reduced amount of blog posts I’ve done in the last seven months or so. Many of you have probably wondered why. (more…)
Last week, I shared the lessons I learned from my father. The rest of Team Carnival has also shared what they learned from the man they call dad. (more…)
Every third Sunday of June, we honor all fathers in the world. And this week, I’m the host of Team Carnival‘s topic of the week: Lessons from my father.
My dad is a simple man. Although he has achieved much in life, he remains humble and true to himself. He never allowed the material trappings to run his life. Sure, he and mom have managed to accumulate a good number of properties and what-nots but you will still see him sport the same clothes, the same pair of shoes. My mom’s common complaint is that my father never buys anything, literally. The only time he gets new stuff is when I and my brothers give him gifts on his birthday and Christmas. (more…)
Anyway, a question was posted in Team Carnival, a support group for Filipino bloggers. Team Carnival member Michelle wants to know the members’ view on earning online. Is it to augment our day job? Or it’s the main source of our income? (more…)
I stumbled upon the idea of a blog carnival when Mindy introduced this.
A blog carnival is like a magazine (this time, online) where an entire issue is dedicated to a particular topic. In this particular platform, members of the blog carnival agree to post blog entries of the same topic in their respective blogs at a set schedule. Different blog hosts are also appointed periodically to provide a summary (including links) of all blog entries regarding that particular topic.
It is an interesting concept because it provides a blogger another way to promote his blog, especially if she’s part of a blog that caters to a specific audience (shopping, parenting, money, etc). An even bigger benefit is that if you have paid ads on your site, you drive more traffic to your site and give more exposure to your advertisers.
My Pinoy Health Hub blog is part of this great blog concept. You can check out the Team Carnival and see it for yourself. Team Carnival is also building a community of bloggers who want to help out each other and share their knowledge.
