I had my blogger account since 2007. It’s not that easy to decide what niche to build. I had a lot of posts that are wasted due to moving from one blog to another. As what I have read, the page must be in line with your interest. In a way or another it will live longer or even last for a lifeltime. That is the beauty there. Most of all, it usually becomes a hobby. Hobby at the same time income source it it is monetize.
WordPress is anothe free blogsite that I also tried aside from blogger. It is user friendly as long as you love to read instructions. It appears like a pro at all time as blogger do. Although different sites but they just have similar process in posting a new content/article, uploading photos, etc.
Below are also cool and free sites. Hence, I haven’t ried but I am sure they are also amazing sites. I know some of my friends who are using them with comfort.
Both have numerous design templates for you to choose from. Steps are simple, just follow instructions and you’ll get to have your personalized portfolio.
When I had my first job, I met an insurance agent who told me about the advantages of having a life insurance. I remember the main purpose was to save for the future or for unexpected things that happen beyond our control. I do have understood what that was for. I enrolled myself to that insurance company, but few months after… I realized, I need to prioritize another need, that if I will go for that, I have to give up the insurance thing. I had a tug-of-war in mind, and the other one won. It’s about building a small house which is just good for one, for me. I’m already tired of transferring from one boarding house to another. When my siblings from the other islands of the country visit, I could not accommodate them in my small apartment. Later, I bought a piece of lot just nearby the company where I worked.
The building stood, it’s almost done.
Now I am planning to have an insurance back to my priority list.

One of the best quotes I want to post on the wall of III Polaris classroom.
The paint brush fighters were having fun with the streamer while boys were busy doing their visual drawing. Making fun with the artist brush, the paint and the white cloth. Their foremost experience made them glad, I know. Lettering in ubd was taken in first year, now they’re having it’s application, synchronized with the visual drawing in the second year.
Doing something like this can be a lot easier with the application of technology. We can of course have it printed in a tarpaulin but if the budget is limited, here is another option. And aside from we were able to save and use what is available, we were able to discover talents in this young second year students too.
SEC 2010 is on its second year of implementation in all secondary schools in the Philippines. Some private schools last year did not adopt the program immediately but on the second year, it is already mandatory as advised by the Department of Education.
When students enroll in first year, they already have to choose a major field of specialization in T.L.E. which will be laddered until they finish high school. So they are not allowed to transfer to another field. It applies the so called UbD or Understanding by Design which is based on the SEC 2010 Curriculum. PECs or Personal Entrepreneurial Competencies is given emphasis here. And that essential understanding will be implanted in their heart and mind.
In T.L.E., students will be trained to become entrepreneurs someday. Whenever they go to college or not, as they graduate they will be bringing with them a crown that can never be taken-the mastery of their chosen field. If they go to college and will take a course related to their chosen field in high school, it would not be hard for them anymore since they already have the prior knowledge. What they need is to enrich the learning they obtained in the intermediate course. If they can not go to college for some reasons, at least they are already equipped with understanding about entrepreneurship and the specialization. They can start a small business related to his specialization or look for a job suited to his qualification.
GO PLACIDLY AMID THE NOISE AND HASTE AND REMEMBER WHAT PEACE THERE MAYBE IN SILENCE. AS FAR AS POSSIBLE WITHOUT SURRENDER, BE ON GOOD TERMS WITH ALL PERSONS.
SPEAK YOUR TRUTH QUIETLY AND CLEARLY; AND LISTEN TO OTHERS, EVEN THE DULL AND IGNORANT; THEY TOO HAVE THEIR STORY.
AVOID LOUD AND AGGRESSIVE PERSONS; THEY ARE VEXATIONS TO THE SPIRIT. IF YOU COMPARE YOURSELF WITH OTHERS, YOU MAY BECOME VAIN AND BITTER; FOR ALWAYS THERE WILL BE GREATER AND LESSER PERSONS THAN YOURSELF. ENJOY YOUR ACHIEVEMENTS AS WELL AS YOUR PLANS.
KEEP INTERESTED IN YOUR OWN CAREER, HOWEVER HUMBLE; IT IS A REAL POSSESSION IN THE CHANGING FORTUNES OF TIME. EXERCISE CAUTION IN YOUR BUSINESS AFFAIRS; FOR THE WORLD IS FULL OF TRICKERY. BUT LET THIS NOT BLIND YOU TO WHAT VIRTUE THERE IS; MANY PERSONS STRIVE FOR HIGH IDEALS; AND EVERYWHERE LIFE IS FULL OF HEROISM.
BE YOURSELF. ESPECIALLY, DO NOT FEIGN AFFECTION. NEITHER BE CYNICAL ABOUT LOVE; FOR IN THE FACE OF ARIDITY AND DISENCHANTMENT IT IS PERENNIAL AS THE GRASS.
TAKE KINDLY THE COUNSEL OF YEARS, GRACEFULLY SURRENDERING THE THINGS OF YOUTH. NURTURE STRENGTH OF SPIRIT TO SHIELD YOU IN SUDDEN MISFORTUNE. BUT DO NOT DISTRESS YOURSELF WITH IMAGININGS. MANY FEARS ARE BORN OF FATIGUE AND LONELINESS. BEYOND A WHOLESOME DISCIPLINE, BE GENTLE WITH YOURSELF.
YOU ARE A CHILD OF THE UNIVERSE, NO LESS THAN THE TREES AND THE STARS; YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO BE HERE. AND WHETHER OR NOT IT IS CLEAR TO YOU, NO DOUBT THE UNIVERSE IS UNFOLDING AS IT SHOULD.
THEREFORE BE AT PEACE WITH GOD, WHATEVER YOU CONCEIVE HIM TO BE, AND WHATEVER YOUR LABORS AND ASPIRATIONS, IN THE NOISY CONFUSION OF LIFE KEEP PEACE WITH YOURSELF.
WITH ALL ITS SHAM, DRUGERYA ND BROKEN DREAMS, IT IS STILL A BEAUTIFUL WORLD. BE CAREFUL. STRIVE TO BE HAPPY.
