I Blog, We Blog

This is a very late post. Since there is an adage that it is better late than never, here goes my post.

Last May, I attended my first bloggers event, the Iblog5.

I felt like a fish out of water.. well, not quite. There were newbie bloggers like me. I've been blogging for more than a year now, but I consider myself a newbie coz I've been on and off blogging and still don't know much about blogging, especially those jargons! I am thankful I stumbled upon this event coz of the information I've learned.

Following are snippets of knowledge I learned about blogging:

- Share the NOW, but savour the MOMENT
- Create VALUE
- Write QUALITY content

There are four levels of blogging evolution:
- artist
- advocate
- entrepreneur
- maven

I guess I am in the artist-advocate level. I hope I'll eventually reach the maven status.

Why blog?

Blogging empowers you to live a life of meaning and purpose, said one speaker.
For that reason alone, I will keep on blogging! However, earning while doing what you love to do is pure BLISS :D

Here is my friend, fellow blogger Frances.

Finally, what I liked about Iblog5 was the chance to visit my alma mater (my pre-law). The event, held at the Malcolm Hall, was hosted by the UP Law Society and other sponsors.

I have to edit this post.

It is NOT true after all.

Ang daya ng SMART!

(To register, simply text REWARDS to 9800. I did that maybe a year ago (can't remember) and forgot about the rewards system. I checked yesterday and found out that I have now 26,145 rewards points!
To redeem
(a) 100 Smart-to-Smart texts, you need 5,000 rewards points and then text REDEEM 100 to 9800
(b) Php300.00 Buddy Prepaid Phonekit discount when you buy at the wireless centers, you need 30,000 rewards points and then text REDEEM PK300 to 9800.

I redeemed the points and did not get the supposedly free texts! Waaah! Ang DAYA! NO FREE TEXTS! NADA. NONE. ZERO. NULL. WALA. WALA WALA WALA.

If an Ass Can Do It, So Can We!

I got this from

If an Ass Can Do It, So Can You!
By Daxx Bondoc

Is a donkey better than you?

What is your excuse for not being a great man or woman of God? You are imperfect? You are sinful? You lack the talents?

If God wants to raise you up to be His witness, He can. With all of your weakness, God still can work miracles through you. God can speak through an ass if He wants to. And He did. That is how he spoke to Balaam the prophet at the book of Numbers (Num. 22:28-30).

And the Lord opened the mouth of the ass, and she said: What have I done to thee? Why strikest thou me, lo, now this third time? Balaam answered: Because thou hast deserved it, and hast served me ill: I would I had a sword that I might kill thee. The ass said: Am not I thy beast, on which thou hast been always accustomed to ride until this present day? tell me if I ever did the like thing to thee.

And that is encouraging!

My friend once said, “God does not call the equipped, but equips the called.” You don’t have to be a genius or to be super holy to do God’s work. The only thing God needs from you is a willing heart. From there God will give you the grace and the talents that you will need to do His work.

God is the God of the impossible. God is not limited by your limitations.

In every one of us lies the seed of greatness, waiting to spring up. He is only waiting for you to say “Yes Lord, I am here to do your will."

Your greatness lies before you.

If an ass can do it, so can you!

Have You Walked the World?

My friends and I had. Well, almost. lolz. We registered for this annual event by the World Food Programme. Unfortunately, on the day itself, the group decided not to push through coz some of us are not feeling well (me included).

Anyway, we got a nice shirt and walked in our dreams.

"End Hunger: Walk the World" is an annual event to raise money and awareness for WFP’s efforts to fight child hunger and malnutrition. The Walk is a joint effort of WFP and its corporate partners, led by TNT, Unilever and DSM. Employees from these companies walk with WFP Goodwill Ambassadors, staff, and beneficiaries as well as government and NGO partners to show their solidarity in the fight against hunger and malnutrition. (from the WFP site)

Here's a message from the WFP

End Hunger: Walk the World Pilipinas was a great success with over 8,000 participants! Thank you. For those who didn't make it, visit or get your shirts from WFP office in Makati!
