[updated] Blog Appetite is Moving (has moved) to Wordpress  

Posted by: mye in

Just an update on this post - I have successfully migrated to Wordpress. Please do visit me there! ^_^

I thought I wouldn't change my mind on moving this blog. However, there are very limited things you can do with blogger. I understand this has been very helpful for me but as I move on to the serious side of blogging, I have noticed that I need to have more. And for that reason, I am moving, besides my new domain is another self-hosted wordpress.

Yes, I am moving www.blogappetite.com to a self-hosted wordpress blog using the same domain. Discussions are ongoing with my admin and I hope it will work in the next few hours.

I will not change the theme. I will retain this beautiful notepad theme but I will be removing unnecessary widgets. I wanted to have a clean blog for now. ^_^

Please please please update you link to www.blogappetite.com and to my blogger followers, I want to exchange links with you so I can include you all in my blog roll. I hope you will continue to read my blogs.

And one more thing, my new blog is now up and running but there are no contents yet. It is entitled Home and Parenting with domain http://homeandparenting.com.
I hope to see you there too!

Cooking Up Something?  

Posted by: mye in

I have actually been wanting to tell everyone about my plans of acquiring another domain that will be dedicated about home and parenting topics only but I have just completed the transaction last weekend.

What's causing further delay? I can't decide on the theme. I have contacted 2 designers already (Carlota and Gisele). Unfortunately, Gis is currently not accepting job anymore for she is very busy so I am just waiting if Carlota can somehow tweak the design for me to make it a 3-column one.

The domain is now up and running but there is just the introductory entry that I used for testing. I am not happy with the results and so I have to wait for the design.

So what happens to Blog Appetite? Of course I will not leave it behind. This is my first blog and I love it so I will still be updating this blog on a regular basis. However, the home and parenting topics will now be posted on the other blog. I want this one to be my personal blog. My adventures, misfortunes, luck and mommy moments will be my topics here. Guess the other blog will be serious, eh.

I will soon announce the site name once the design is final. So I am pleading (yeah, pleading) that you follow me and read my other blogs as well. Hope you could treat my new blog the same way you did to Blog Appetite.

Thanks in advance ^_^

Family's Day Out con Photo Shoot  

Posted by: mye in ,

Hubby just recently joined a photography club since he wants to sharpen his skills and learn the art behind photography. When he bought the camera a couple of months ago, he was just practicing by himself and couldn't get some good shots(well, at least for someone who owns a Canon 1000D). He, himself was not satisfied with his shots and he knew he need to learn..from others and from experience. So there, we set off to Paco Park to join the Aperturista Photo Shoot today.

I am not so familiar with the theme they set up for this shooting gig but I think it was called Gothic (really, I am not so sure). But take a look at his shots! I was quite surprised! Well, I did the editing for now so please bear with it... ^_^ I am not so good about picture editing yet.

Of course, the family pictures will not be totally left out. He took pictures of the kids (and me!) and these are the results. I hope he'll pursue this hobby. I like pictures...so I can scrap! And believe me, I am going to download and buy scrap kits so I can make some out of these pictures.

That comprised our park adventure for today. The kids enjoyed playing around and they were very happy. Another family bonding ^_^

My Own Domain

Alas! I am now configuring my blogger to redirect to my domain www.blogappetite.com, gosh I hope it works! I've got my hosting services from Web Hosting Pad

Well, as I've said before I bought the hosting service for 2 years and it has been unused for 6months already so I paid for something I am not using. What a waste of money. This is the reason why I decided to try it myself...

Good luck to me! ^_^

Sorry! I can't help but edit the post - just right after editing the blogger settings....see? It worked! Gosh, it took me a while!

Guess, I need to update my profiles, eh! *wink wink*

Going Freelance?  

Posted by: mye in ,

When I resigned from my previous job, I started searching online for home-based jobs so I can help my husband, financially wise while I am at home taking care of the kids. Unfortunately, back then, I can't find a home-based job like freelance writing, designing, transcriptions, etc. I am unsure if I have just not done my best searching but really, I found nothing. That was 3 years ago.

Last week, while trying to read blogs and downloading a scrap kit, I happened to see a forum discussing about freelance writing and things like online money making. I got caught in the writing opportunity. My writing might not be in good comparison as to the works of our good friends in the blogosphere but you know, I am still interested to do it.

In short, I registered. And the good thing, registration is free. And as I go on, I keep on finding different sites offering freelance services and giving projects to freelancers. I was amazed by how many are they that I even asked myself - "Why didn't I get the chance to see these opportunities when I have the luxury of time to work from home before?"

Oh well, I've learned about a couple more sites (I hope they are all legal). One thing for sure, I did not spend a penny to register - which made me think, these are not scams - I pray they aren't.
