Filipino Voices – My Choice

It was really hard to choose in the list of the Philippine Blog Awards Bloggers’ Choice Nominees. If I were to be subjective in my choice, that would give me a hard time and of course the reason for voting won’t be logical at all and won’t make any sense. Thus, I’ve become objective in my choice. Amongst the list, my vote goes for Filipino Voices. Continue reading “Filipino Voices – My Choice”

Infinitube

Infinitube is a new web toy built by Luis. He used Ruby on Rails, YouTube-GG Ruby Gem and YouTube’s Javascript API. He made this app in 8 hours. Well, as for me, we have a TV on our living room but I’m not comfortable using my laptop there since the height of the table will pose future posture problems. ๐Ÿ˜€ So, the only entertainment that I got here in my room is playing iTunes and playing a PSP game. With this new web toy built by Luis, I can watch something without leaving my room. ๐Ÿ˜€

Banda.PH

Banda.PH is my photo blog dedicated to Philippine bands. I used the Hemingway theme for it and customize it a bit so that it would only show one blog post. Originally, the theme was designed to have two posts that are placed side-by-side. Then, instead of choosing the WordPress tags to appear on the footer, I placed it on a page by customizing the theme. The pages and the posts were indexed easily by Google. Thanks to Google’s Webmaster Tools. ๐Ÿ™‚

Have you watched Justin.TV?

Justin.TV is like the popular TV show Big Brother in some ways. Justin wears the camera 24 hours, 7 days a week. And that is even if he’s in the bathroom or on a date. And according to the website, he’ll wear the camera until the day he dies. It was launched on March 19 and it has been running online for nine days already ๐Ÿ˜€ .

Make Blog Money with a 13 year old

Is Carl Ocab a Darren Rowse in the making? I’ve stumbled upon his blog while I was checking my recent visitors via MyBlogLog’s widget here in my blog. While I was browsing his blog, I’ve seen that he made a modified WordPress theme and I commended his modification of the K2 theme making it Adsense ready in my Pinoy.Tech.Blog post. It is indeed a first time for me to read a blog of a thirteen year old who talks about Adsense, search engine optimization (SEO) or anything that is relevant to blog monetization. Check out his blog and maybe you’ll get started monetizing your blog like what he’s doing. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Blocked in China?

My blog is blocked in China! I tested using the website Great Firewall of China. John Chow’s test result is also the same as mine. However, he mentioned that when he was in China, he was able to access his blog and as for my blog, I was not able to access it there. Thus, I was not able to blog there. So I did an offline blogging instead. ๐Ÿ˜€ I just wrote everything in Microsoft Word and saved the document. Then, I just copied and pasted the entries when I got back in Manila. ๐Ÿ˜€

Spreading some link loving!

Bembang Blogs – Not blocked
Kiss Fendi – blocked
Thoughts in Binary – Not blocked

I just hoped that my URL is not blocked in China as suggested by their disclaimer:

this version 1.0 may report sites as being โ€šร„รฒblockedโ€šร„รด, while there are only technical reasons for their unavailability.
It’s greatfirewallofchina.org’s aim to collaboratively build a community that will be able to visualize Internet censorship in an increasingly accurate way.

The T-Shirt Project

The T-Shirt Project has a website! I’m pretty sure that you have heard of Spoofs Ltd. which owns the brand Spoofs. Of course, a lot got amused with the FedUp shirts and as well as the Bokia shirts that wearing a Spoofs shirt became contagious. Spoofs Ltd. also owns Branded and is popular amongst the gig-a-holics where you could spot one wearing a “Giniling Festival Nakamamatay” shirt. There are also shirts (under the Malisya brand) that are not suitable for minors for its message. ๐Ÿ˜€ The website is soon to be e-commerce enabled. Thus, you could shop online in the near future! Prior to shopping in their website, you must first create an account. However, let’s just wait for the online shop to go live. ๐Ÿ™‚
