Intentional Blogging #1: Why do I blog?

Why do I blog? I’m afraid to answer that question sometimes because I’m afraid of being labeled a sell-out. Around here I hear a lot of talks about how a blog should be, and I understand, I really do. Why wouldn’t I? I started out with the same motivation and intention. But life moves, and my blog automatically moves along with me. When I started blogging, all I wanted was to talk about my son and my life with him. I was a stay-at-home mom and my life was basically made up of taking care of him, the laundry, dinners with […]

Giving up a good-paying online job

I resigned from my online job as a Content Marketer for an Australia-based web development company a month ago. When you think about it, nothing about my decision makes sense. The job was a lot of things many Filipino online workers hope for. I was receiving good pay and I had a kind employer who fairly appreciated the efforts I put into the company. So why give up all that, right? The decision didn’t come easy, honestly.

But with Sites Made Simple, a new app released in the market by my company and a more streamlined content marketing strategy, I desperately needed […]

After all, I had some tasks to finish at work and it would mean I’ll have to do extra hours to make up for the time. I wanted to make sure that it wasn’t something I already know. I’ve been reading a lot on digital marketing because it’s my job. I’ve also attended workshops, but it’s one thing to know all these principles and […]

Tips from a Maid-less Work-at-Home-Mom

Note: I first posted this blog in September of 2011 when my two older children were six and two while our youngest was 9 months old. When I transferred to WordPress in August of 2012, I reposted it in the new blog but didn’t make any effort to share it until now. Many moms have been asking me again lately how I am able to accomplish the things that I accomplish with three active little boys, a full time online job and no helper. So I’ve decided to re-share this – my (not-so) secrets to getting things done. It still […]
