About Blogging: Creating a Blogger Blog (Part 4)

To continue the About Blogging series, this post is about creating a blog using Blogger.  After writing about a few articles that you would want to post in your blog, you're now ready to create a blog.  Why use Blogger?  For me, I use Blogger because it's free, pretty easy to use (not many technical skills required) and Blogger blogs are indexed rather quickly by Google.

To create a blog, you can sign up at Blogger.  If you already have an account with Google, like Gmail, you can already use the same account.  Just follow the 3 steps: Create Account, Name Your Blog and Choose your Template.  Just follow the prompts by Blogger and answer the questions required and you're on your way to making a blog.

Reminder:  In naming your blog, take into consideration what I have shared in the previous post How Do You Choose Your Blog Name.  Your blog address with blogger will be a subdomain - http://chosenname.blogspot.com.  If you don't like it to be in that format, long and not easy to remember, you can always buy a domain name and point it to Blogger.

In the Choose Your Template step, you can choose any of the templates available and then change or customize it later.  Blogger used to have just a few template options available but now they have a whole lot more to offer with the New Blogger Template Designer.  Very easy to navigate, just point and click away and you can make your very own blog design.






If you can't still find that perfect blog design you like, you can Google search for free blogger or blogspot templates.  In whatever site you go to that offers blog templates, you will also find the instructions on how to apply the template to your blog.

Still, if you want to make a design really unique to you, and you have the cash to spare, you can look for a Customized website or blog designer.  Try Lady Java Creations Blog Makeover.  If you need a custom logo design, go to Fiverr and look for a logo designer.

When you're done with the 3 steps, you can now start adding your first post.  Press publish and your blog is now online.

Which Brand of Electric Fan Do You Recommend?

It’s really hot now and it’s so untimely that one of our fans gave up on us. We only have 2 working. Actually, since we came here in the Philippines 2 years ago, we’ve already bought 6 fans and I’m not satisfied with how they worked for only a short time. We bought 2 Standard industrial stand fans, one broke in less than a year while the other one is still working. We bought 1 Union desk fan and this one lasted 2 years. Then, we bought 1 Dowell stand fan because of a sale but then it was defective within one month. We brought it to their service center, they got it fixed but then the entire head (with the fan blade) of the fan flew off (nasira ang hinang).

What's the Best Shampoo For Getting Rid of Head Lice?

When my family was staying in the Middle East, my daughters had no problems with head lice or “kuto.” A head louse (lice, plural) is a six-legged parasite that feeds on blood in the human head. Lice do not jump or fly, but crawl only. They do not carry any disease, but they suck blood and cause itchiness. Here’s a photo showing the life cycle of head lice. The life cycle of head lice.

Sisa Monologue Script in English

Last second quarter, my Grade 8 daughter's English class teacher asked them to present a Monologue in class. The teacher asked the students to choose a character on whom they want to base their monologue. My daughter chose Sisa of Noli Me Tangere. The problem is that most of the Sisa monologue Script that can be found on the internet are in Filipino or Tagalog. You can't find one in English. Well, there's one but it was very, very short, just one paragraph, I think. And so, we had no choice but to make a Sisa monologue script in English. It's not required for the students to make their own script and so I helped my daughter produce one. I just looked up a good Sisa script in Tagalog online and translated it. Thank God for Google Translate as it helped me do 50% of the work. The Google translation was not 100% accurate, so I still had to edit it. Here's the final script (515 words), which I want to share with you (and other people looking for Sisa monologue
