Control-Freak Mom Goes One Year…

…and I almost forgot it. Yep, this blog turned a year old yesterday, October 5th. And it’s been active since I started. That is a feat for me. Whoopee! Now, what? I’ve been planning on getting my own domain so this blog can progress but as of now, it is not yet on top of my budget list. Though hopefully I will be able to get my own domain up and running by next year. For now, I’ll keep this one going. ūüėÄ I have never really thought that I would enjoy “publicly” blogging (so to speak) and sharing bits […]

Blog Challenge – Day 3: Why Do I Blog?

It’s raining outside. I should have¬†been sleeping now had I¬†gone to bed earlier. But before I go visit neverland in my dreams, let me do this challenge first. Something to end the day. Why do I blog? When I started¬†my very first blog, it was to see what blogging was all about. A few of my friends were maintaining their own blogs and I never really understood why. So I tried to sign up to see what the craze was all about. As I’ve mentioned previously, I never really shared my blog to the whole world, so to speak. I […]

Blog Challenge Pt 2: Up for another challenge?

Last November, I searched for a blog challenge and a photo challenge online just so I can have something to write and post in this blog. Since it is already July, my birth month, I have been thinking for doing another blog challenge. I haven’t decided yet if I will include a photo challenge but just the same, I am definitely doing one. I was able to find a few interesting blog challenges online but some of the¬†topics included, I have already blogged about last year.¬†And then I found a 30-day open letter challenge and it sounds interesting:   Here […]

Wednesday What-nots: 2 Years; Then and Now, etc.

It’s already Wednesday in this side of the world – 2AM. I left work on time because I felt that I was no longer being productive. I was just starting at my screen most of the time – probably trying to get my laptop to do the work for me, haha, I don’t really know. I was out of focus for some reason. Now I am at home and was not really planning to¬†blog but for some reason, the open¬†Chrome tab for WordPress was beckoning. So, here I am, trying to squeeze my brains out for something to post. So […]

Photo ‚Äď Blog Challenge Day 17

Blog Challenge: Why and When did you start blogging? Geez, I think I have been blogging for more than ten years now. I have had several blogs over the years. I cannot remember the very first one that I had though. Then there was one blog site that I had before (the site shut down early this year after trying to fully convert the site to an online shopping site). For the longest time, I maintained a blog with Multiply.com. If the site is still alive today, I would probably still use that. The very first one I created as […]

Photo Blog Challenge, anyone?

A cousin of mine is currently doing a 365-day photo challenge. Sounds easy to do with all the smart phones / camera phones all over. And there was a video that I saw of ¬†a baby. It was a video montage of video clips taken since day 1 up until the kid turned 1 year old. I actually loved the idea of the video montage that I was planning to do the same with my son. Unfortunately, we weren’t able to do that. The idea of it is really cool but doing it is not as easy as it sounded. […]
