My Top 10 Weight Loss Activity

These are very simple actions added to my regular activities but big steps towards calorie burning.

1. After eating a full meal, rest standing up for 10 minutes and walk for at least 15 minutes. You'll achieve or maintain a smaller waistline. (75 calories)

2. While taking a shower wash a couple of dirty clothes and hang them to dry. The idea is you’re soaking wet anyway so why not do some laundry at the same time. You'll save on electric, water, and energy bills. (60 calories/20 minutes)

3. Iron your clothes. It doesn’t take that long to press them. You’ll also look fresher in neatly pressed clothing. (60 calories/ 15 minutes)

4. When doing your grocery shopping, walk or take a public transport. If you use your car, park as far as possible. (300 calories/hour)

5. Don’t use your electric vacuum cleaner to clean your floor or rug, instead use a broom and mop, or if you have a rug, use the manual roller type cleaner. For fun turn on the stereo so you can do some swinging as well. (150 calories/30 minutes)

6. Walk every chance you get. The art of walking – walk in small steps briskly. (300 calories/hour)

7. Cook and prepare your own healthy food. Stay away from ready-to-eat or fast-food meals. (240 calories/hour)

8. When blogging or surfing, take a break every 30 minutes (don’t forget to set your alarm clock) and do stretching exercises or hop on a stationary bike for 5-10 minutes. (100 calories/break)

9. Manually wash your dishes and utensils. Don’t stick them in the dish washer. (60 calories/15 minutes)

10. Drink lots of water. You will feel less hungry. (eat wisely)

Here’s my bonus weight loss tip to you all – Do the “papaya dance” often...(210 calories/30 minutes)

jiggle to the right 1, 2, 3,

jiggle to the left 1, 2, 3,

jiggle up 1, 2, 3,

jiggle down 1, 2, 3,

zigzag up...repeat

What The Mind Can Conceive The Blog Can Achieve

"What the mind can conceive the blog can achieve." - Rhea

This blog is now a part of my daily chore. Judging from the warm comments I have received, I'm feeling more motivated and responsible to write good articles. I am enjoying the writing part tremendously, a discovery I never thought I have enough patience to do.

My time blogging coupled with the soaring gas and consumer goods prices made me realized that I have to start innovating, renovating, and implementing a rather unique lifestyle to start saving money to cope up with recession and still be able to give time for my new found interest. I’m both fortunate and lucky to have a very supportive and compassionate partner who took a break from his own business to help me in this unique lifestyle change. We plan to integrate both our income sources for the same reason to hedge us against the uncertainty of rising costs of doing business.

Profits from my small fast-food outlets where I get my sustainable income have been on a decline. Since I cannot be there all the time now, I have installed online cameras on some of the stores for monitoring purposes. I’m satisfied with the results so far because I can virtually be in several places at the same time and actually save a lot from the rising fuel costs by using my car less frequently. I also signed up for online banking that I find to be so much easier to transact as oppose to lining up and wasting all that time at the bank. Hopefully, these measures will add up for a more stable income.

It was only recently that I have uncovered these numerous value added services that my desktop computer can do. For the most part, I was only using this computer for accounting (excel) purposes and occasional surfing. I would never have found out if I never started blogging, meeting good people like you and reading quality posts from fellow bloggers because my daily routine then was just home and work. I have learned how to multi task in a very efficient way to compensate for the time I spend surfing. Overall, the monetary savings I am experiencing is beyond expectations.

Being in front of the computer for several hours a day will take its toll on my health, and that’s one of several considerations I will never compromise. So my hubby bought a stationary bike. Placed it strategically in front of the monitor, installed a made to order holder for the wireless keyboard and a mouse pad for the wireless mouse on the stationary bike. Go ahead you can laugh, but it's actually working. How’s that for innovation? As a result, I have terminated my fitness club membership for additional savings. I’ll be posting a picture of the stationary bike as soon as we finish some minor adjustments. We plan on purchasing a treadmill in the near future and do the same with it. Who says we can't be both a computer junkie and a health buff at the same time? Any investors out there?

This blog has achieved what my mind has conceived. Lady luck seems to have a knack of finding me. I hope she does the same for you.

I'm having a bad hair day...

I have literally joined the rat race . Pay Per Post, who rejected me a couple of times because my blog was fairly new and does not have enough "quality content", finally gave me the thumbs up. So for the past several days of my heightened motivation to make money online, I've been rearranging and experimenting with my blog to get my ranking from goggle pagerank, and in order for me to start writing for Pay Per Post which is part of the requirement. I've also been so keen in making money with adsense and other affiliate stuff that I loaded up my sidebar with all kinds of ads. Guess what happened? I woke up this morning, check my google analytics and found what I have always feared. Readers are not coming back like they used to. I have abandoned what got me here in the first place which is posting Comiqs and humorous personal views. I got so engrossed with the hundreds of blogs I surfed everyday about online money making ideas that I have totally done a extreme makeover without even knowing it. Change is something I seldom do at the spur of the moment. But somehow, I got hypnotized by the thousands of headlines I saw while surfing, stating make money this, make money that, and burn your bridges to start something new, etc. It took a post that I came across today from Pinay Mommy Online and Bloggernoob to realize the big mistake I've done.

An excerpt from Bloggernoob, "...If you change the tone of your blog, you’ll see a drop in traffic. If your readers are used to a certain kind of posts, you better keep that going. Change is something that people don’t seem to like. Being too straight forward could hurt your blog..." (read more)

Am I having a bad hairday? Heck yeah! But I'm also glad, I caught my mistake early. I should have known better. Resiliency has always been incorporated within me so I know that bouncing back to correct my error will be easy. I say enjoy what you're doing, do what you do best, streamline the people you want to listen to, but keep an open mind, relax, take it easy and everything will just fall into place.

Lessons to be learned while surfing...

2 pages of Comiqs...Enjoy

Life On the Internet from spiritwarrior on Comiqs

Two lessons in internet surfing. First lesson is be kind to your mouse. It's that one piece of equipment that is always neglected and abused. Without it your blog life is paralyzed. Second lesson is what my mom has always told me, that if a person says to you "trust me", be wary. Who you meet while surfing or chatting on the internet may not be who they say they are. This is just a couple of pointers I'm sharing with you. There must be plenty out there, please share them here.

Not Too Lazy Sunday

Today, wasn't really that lazy. I watched the boxing match between Pacquiao and Marquez. Although, I'm not really a fan of boxing, but the match got me all riled up since Pacquiao is a fellow countryman. Congratulations Manny for a job well done.

I'm almost done with my study of a niche market I will implement in my new site. That means, I will start joining the monetizing club. The numerous tips I read will be a big help in doing so. I think it's really important to have a goal to set the parameters, so I have created a set of questions for myself to go about the project.

1. What's my dream? I believe my dream will make me succeed and overcome obstacles and hindrances. It will also empower me to face the difficulties ahead in starting a new venture.

2. What are my experiences, my strengths and weaknesses? This will define my niche market.

3. How do I start the business? Monetizing a site is a business. This is essential in creating a business plan.

4. What's my short term goal? 1 to 3 year plan.

5. What's my long term goal? 3 to 5 year plan. I think this is very important to be considered since I'm not in it because it's a fad. I'm here for the long run.

6. Do I have the resources to succeed? I've notice that most successful cyberpreneurs invested money and time to drive lots of targeted traffic in their sites. I have a successful offline business myself so this came as no surprise. Target marketing is still king in marketing parlance.

7. Am I ready to take the plunge and change my lifestyle? I have to answer this from the bottom of my heart. I know that this will entail a lot of time and effort. I have to consider everything including the people around me. Remember, It's a lonely place at the top...LOL

So stay tuned for my next niche episode...May you have a wonderful week ahead. This video is for you and I hope your week will be the greatest ever.

I love you and the least I can do for you is clean your monitor...enjoy

Ps. Here's My weekly report:

-Alexa ranking at site creation 2/01/08 = 12,000,000 +

-Alexa ranking 2/14/08 prior to signing up at entrecard, site hoppin, social networks = 5,899,000

-Alexa ranking as of 3/16/08
o Yesterday = 75,645
o 1 Week Average 3/08/08= 79,002 This Week 74,232
o 3 Months Average 3/08/08= 465,899 This Week 305,802 Shaved off 160,000+

I may be over emphasizing how Entrecard, site hoppin and social networks have help me achieve an incredible increase in traffic and exposure, but it does work. For those of you who are monetizing your site and needing traffic, you can't go wrong with the combination.

About Comiqs


To the Comiqs Team - Michael, Bob, Jairus from spiritwarrior on Comiqs

I've been using Comiqs extensively to express some of my ideas in the form of humorous cartoons or conversations. To my surprise, the warm reception that I got from many readers are beyond what I had expected. I even had the luxury to chat with one of the owners, asking for my personal opinion and review of the program. He told me that a new exciting feature in Comiqs will soon be coming out and I would be one of several users to try it first. That's quite an honor. You just have to try Comiqs to experience the fun and ease of using it.

Here's the press release of Comiqs:

Creating Comics Online With the Launch of Comiqs.com Beta Edition

Comiqs.com has just been relaunched as the Comiqs.com Beta Edition, replete with a lot of new features and fixing a number of bugs.

One Sound Idea Is All You Need...


I Could Have, Should Have... from spiritwarrior on Comiqs

One sound idea is all you need to prosper in life. Observe very carefully, that idea may just be in front of you. Keep an open mind, because when you begin to think freely and without biased, everything you see becomes an opportunity. There is no complex or simple idea; it is just a matter of how you apply it, and when you find an idea, by all means pursue it with gusto and perseverance like it will expire as soon as you slow down.

A conversation I once had with my former employer went like this:

Boss: Do you see that one big piece of vacant land?

Me: Yes, it’s got a beautiful view of the ocean. I could feel the sea breeze...

Boss: If you work very hard and stay with my company for a long time...

Me: (excited) Yes?

Boss: That one big piece of land will all be mine...

It was meant to be a joke. But did you get the idea?

Please do share a comment. Tia...

Lazy Sunday


Monetize or Commercialize My Blog from spiritwarrior on Comiqs


I’m treating myself to a lazy Sunday. That means doing nothing except for my usual entrecard routine and writing my site’s traffic report which I’d like to share with you. First of all, if you scroll down to my earlier post of Good Bye February, Hello March, I mentioned about the blog site I found that got me into entrecard. The owner was kind enough to leave a comment on my post, and the really funny part was the site has been on my entrecard premium bookmark after all. This was buried beneath several posts by the owner that’s why I never recognized it. Here it is:

Daily Tech Impressions

Thanks again and here are my traffic report as of 3/8/08:

-Alexa ranking at site creation 2/01/08 = 12,000,000 +

-Alexa ranking 2/14/08 prior to signing up at entrecard, site hoppin, social networks = 5,899,000

-Alexa ranking as of 3/08/08
o Yesterday = 79,169
o 1 Week Average = 79,002
o 3 Months Average = 465,899

-Entrecard statistics
o 1111 credits in your account
o 350 credits to advertise on your blog
o 3296 credits earned via ads
o 98/5975 cards you dropped today/ever
o 44/2807 cards dropped on you today/ever
o 8782 credits earned via drops
o 922 clicks via ads you placed
o 934 clicks from your blog to others
o 2508 clicks from entrecard.com to you
o 21 ads you bought
o 9 ads bought from you
o 9 currently running ads

-Google page rank = 0 (too new)

-Google search = 4 out 4,660,000

That’s my summary fellow entrecarders and bloggers. I say not bad at all for a new blog. Well, I have to make a decision soon whether to transfer to a paid host using wordpress as many have already suggested. As far as monetizing my blog, I’m slowly testing the possibility but definitely not my priority at the moment. Right now, I’m enjoying my blogging and in the process of creating a niche blog. Any suggestion you have will be most welcome and appreciated.
