As promised, here’s my presentation in PDF format for your reference! I also gave a copy to the WordCamp PH crew, so they’ll be have the file ready for download from their site soon too 🙂 This is the first time I’ve used scribd.com for document sharing, so bear with me — I don’t know how to make the file downloadable yet 😀

Anyway, here’s the presentation in PDF. Unfortunately, it doesn’t have the “magical” effects I used during the actual presentation but the info you’ll need are all there 🙂

Bloggers’ Choice Awards now open for voting!

Voting is now open for the Bloggers’ Choice Awards! Check out the guidelines and the list of nominees before casting your vote. As you will see, the voting procedure is much more complicated than last year’s. That was intentional 🙂

Aside from providing online mileage for our kind sponsors (without them, there won’t be an Awards Night for us bloggers to enjoy), we wanted to be sure that the award really and truly is bloggers’ choice. I don’t know why, but last year some people assumed that you are already a blogger and your vote will count just because you put in “Yahoo.Com” or “Friendster.Com” as your blog URL in hopes of getting around our voting system 😛 Read more

WordCamp presentation download

As promised, you can download my presentation at WordCamp Philippines 2008 🙂 I’ve uploaded them at MediaFire; not sure how long the files will be available on the site though, this is the first time I’ve used it. Many thanks to Nina for the head’s up on this site.

wordcamp_gailv.ppt (File size: 27.23MB) or wordcamp_gailv.pptx (File size: 10.41MB)

The content of the two files are exactly the same, except that the effects are not all available in the PPT version, and the Smart Objects are rendered as graphics so the overall file size is twice as big as the PPTX one. If your PowerPoint version is earlier than MS PowerPoint 2007, download the PPT version because I’m not sure if you’d be able to run the PPTX version.

I was at WordCamp Philippines 2008!

I‘m still finishing up my Davao visit post (lots of pictures!), so for now let’s talk WordCamp Philippines! 🙂 But unfortunately, I wasn’t able to take photos at the event 🙁 I dunno, I guess I was just lazy, knowing full well that Melo will be taking lots of photos anyway 😀 I do have three photos in my camera though, pics of me with Mr. WordPress!

I wasn’t able to attend the breakaway sessions in the morning as well 🙁 I was just too sleepy (I wasn’t able to sleep at all the night before due to some pending work needed to be done), and conked out for a few minutes in the volunteers’ lounge instead 😛 My husband Marc had rest, so he just attended the sessions for both of us (he’ll just teach me the new things he learned). Next WordCamp, I swear I will get some sleep before the event! (Aileen and I were witnesses when Matt made Blogie promise WordCamp Philippines 2009! LOL). Read more

I’m going to WordCamp Philippines!

Finally, we have a WordCamp here.

I’m actually very excited to go to WordCamp Philippines 2008 for a number of reasons. One, because I love WordPress, I’m such a nerd, and I would feel incredibly unfulfilled if I don’t go. Two, our web design business is expanding and we’re in the look-out for budding CSS encoders and PHP programmers. And three, because I’m a fan-girl of Matt Mullenweg and would love to get his autograph and have my picture taken with him!

If reason number three isn’t good enough a reason, I don’t know what is 😀 Read more

Sorry guys, I’ve been sick for the past two weeks, I haven’t really been able to do much. So this is going to be a “quickie” post. I have so much backlog in blogging lately, so I figured a short update will do. I’ve been meaning to post a new entry once I’ve finished my new design (I’m already in the coding phase!), but I got sick and some of these things can’t wait anymore.

This blog has gone through a lot—redesigns, criticisms, support, praise, etc.—in the past three years of its existence. And for that, I thank you all for continuing to read and support it:

Thank you!

Yeah, this is another Thank You Day Philippines pimp. I’m pimping my work. Haha. Seriously though, this is one pimp where you can actually win prizes. Read more

The pain and shame of hangovers

Sixteen days of no blogging? Ah. Just a little bit more and I’ll be blogging as sporadic as Markku! 😛 I know the excuse is getting old, but really, I’ve never been this busy since two years ago, when I had to work triple time in order to help my dad pay for my sister’s expensive hospitalization bills and medicines at the psych ward of Medical City. Good thing my being busy is for a much happier reason this time around.

I wanted to blog this sooner, but during my free time last week, I had been indisposed. Really, really indisposed. That was a three-day hangover I nursed, dude! Nothing but a very embarrassing jolt (not to mention a pounding headache) can remind me that alcohol can make a workaholic unproductive. For three days, I’ve moaned and groaned at how painful my head was. Of course, I couldn’t work properly, how could I? And now, I have another load of backlog, not to mention the planned load of impending deadlines this coming week. Read more

Joining the fray on blog disclosures

After two weeks of house arrest in front of my PC, I finally got that much needed break. Marc and I are at Fontana Leisure Park in Angeles City with my college friends right now, taking a very short vacation over the weekend before we tackle another tiring, work-laden week ahead. I made a vow to really take a break, and just brought along this laptop for the sole purpose of pleasurable blogging. But I guess sometimes, it’s really hard to avoid not to sneak in a bit of work if you’ve been so used to doing something more productive than getting morning glory on my eyes from too much sleep. I know I should be enjoying it, but for some weird reason, I find the peacefulness of the place a bit unnerving—it gives me this uneasy feeling that I’ll have another load of work backlog when I get back.

But then again, I have to admit that all these nature stuff (for once I could actually hear myself think, albeit the crickets and occasional croaks of nearby frogs) and peacefulness are helping me to finally get my thoughts in order and blog about something I’ve been longing to write about but haven’t had the time and energy nor the inspiration to do so: Blog Disclosures.

Some of my friends have already made their say on this issue. Others I agree with, but some, I honestly don’t. But then again, disagreements do happen even between the best of friends—because after all, people have different views on things, and stand for different priorities and advocacies. So yeah, you can either agree or disagree with me. But allow me to give you my piece.

I’m a strong believer of transparency, and of how that transparency helps you protect your integrity. I don’t why, I guess my parents just brought me up that way. Besides, I myself have been an unfortunate victim of underhanded tactics, which probably pushed me further to this line of thinking. Don’t do unto others what you don’t want others to do unto you.

So what does this have to do with blog disclosures? A lot, I think. Read more
