My Most Memorable Blogging Experience

"What is my most memorable blogging experience?"  Hmmm.  That is a little tough to answer.  I've been blogging for about 3 years now and I have 3 blogs which I regularly update.   So, I'll just limit the answer to what I experienced with this blog.

I really get excited when I see visitors coming to this blog and leaving their comments, so allow me to list 2 instances that made my blogging memorable so far this past year.

My number one memorable blogging experience is when I joined the BC Bloggers' Party. The BC Bloggers' Party was a get-to-know party organized by Mommy Paula among BC Bloggers members.  We were asked to write a post telling a little something about ourselves. It was a really great idea that I joined that one because I met many bloggers during the blog hopping and I learned a lot from them.  It introduced Stay at Home Blessings to other bloggers as well.  That blog post harvested the most comments in my entire list of blog posts.  It taught me the importance of socializing to blogging.

There were other special instances when I see visitors coming to this blog.  One that is memorable to me also is when I joined Just Another Pixel's Make a Wish Blog Contest where I won one of the prizes.  The blog post A Mother's Wish which I wrote for that contest still gets some visitors dropping by.

On top of that, I remember that my blog was unranked by Google before joining that contest (It used to be PR2).  After the contest, which coincided with Google updating page ranks, I was so happy to discover that my blog is now PR3.  It must be because I got one-month advertising spaces on 4 blogs including in Just Another Pixel's blog which is PR4.  Wow! It taught me that you can build quality backlinks when joining contests. Backlinks help in the search engine optimization of your blog.  For this reason, I occasionally join contests aside from the motivation that the handsome prize brings.

I hope this post of some of my memorable experiences as a blogger did not just tell you something about myself, but also taught you some lessons to learn about blogging.

Thanks for the mention, sis! And, yes, I agree, one way to get backlinks is joining contests. One reason I'm maintaining my PR4 is because I got link love from Yugatech when I won in 2 of his giveaways. :)

Good luck to you! :)

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
