This post was written using this notebook.
As soon as I learned that I was able to get a salary loan from SSS and a multipurpose loan from PAGIBIG, I went out looking for laptops that satisfy that budget. After those few years of working at home at a desktop computer, maybe it is time for me to get out of my home and explore the world, right?
When I went out shopping, I already had set my sights on the ideal computer that I want: as light as a netbook but as powerful as a laptop. Performance was my first consideration; weight comes second. Soon I learned that finding one was difficult at this time.
After scouting around I decided to get an Acer 4740G notebook computer. Any person looking over this laptop gets to see these specifications written at the palmrest just below the right hand side of the keyboard.

- 14.0 inch HD LED LCD
- 2 GB memory
- 320 GB HDD
- Acer Nplify ™ 802.11 b/g/n
This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Nexx Online. All opinions are 100% mine.
Weeks before I heard this news from some blogger friends of mine that they were able to buy a new webhost at Nexx which only costs $10. That deal covers Unlimited Web Hosting and a free domain that comes with it. This is the most inexpensive web host deal I had discovered so far.
Normally, Nexx offers webhosting that costs $5.95/month for a year’s subscription (which amounts to $71.40. Pay only $10 for the first year by applying the promotional code SPARK10. This limited offer is good until June 30, 2010.
The only catch I can see here is that the $10 seems to apply only to the first year subscription. However, the value is low enough to attract webmasters like me to try their webhosting plans for a year. Even bloggers who want to try out having their own domains on a self-hosted WordPress would definitely find this deal much affordable for them – this is such a good opportunity for them to try out this platform!
Here’s what is offered in that hosting plan:
- Diskspace: Unlimited
- Bandwidth: Unlimited
- E-mail: Unlimited
- Free Domains: 1
- 24/7 Customer Support
- **Google Adwords Credits: $50
- **Facebook Ads Credits: $50
- One-Click WordPress and Blog installations.
Upon learning this friends did not miss a beat and they had immediately signed up for this offer. I was about to do the same, but I stopped at their payment methods – I was ready to pay but they only accept credit cards at this time – which happened to be all out of funds.
Silence is golden.
It has been several months since I’ve published posts on any of my blogs. Although some of you might have noticed my brief updates through Plurk, Facebook or Twitter, I was not able to manage having time to create longer posts for any of my blogs.
March 2010: Dad got stroke
At the start of this month, just nearing the end of the Panagbenga festival, my father was suddenly down with stroke. This unfortunate incident definitely changed the way things are done at home. But that’s just the way life is: my parents are getting old and I suddenly realized that I have to assume the responsibility of being the sole breadwinner of the family.
Me and my dad
People living in various countries could use CPALead to earn income, but the requirements and step-by-step guide below applies to most (but not all) bloggers who are residents of the Philippines.
This is the reason why I signed up with CPALead not long ago. There is a huge gold mine waiting to be discovered from this hot (but not new) site!

Being a freelance web designer is not something that I expected to land on. But during my early years I really have that strange deep interest in almost anything that involved computers. I am not surprised that even after taking up engineering and passing the boards for that, I still find myself doing IT-related jobs: these past few years I had been offering my services as a freelance web designer.
Many of my friends and strangers ask me: what have you been up to lately? I answer them – I do web design (but I am mostly concentrated on doing WordPress blogs). I also earn from blogs. All these I do full-time right in my home.
