To play for a tournament to unwind and to stay fit is a thing that all of us in the corporate world should do. Yes, I did played for a tournament commissioned by one of the consulting firm here in Makati (Hyder Philippines) together with De La Salle University.
Our team was composed of new comers like me because our company has just started to grow in employees for its expansion so majority of the players of our company who played for our the games are new faces. We were informed that there is a try-out for the said tournament a week before the said tournament took off and I told myself why not give it a try. So the try out was held four days after the start of the tournament so we barely had the time to practice and it turns out that the try out is already our practice. But a game is not enough to know how good your teamates are and is not enough to know how the team would fare in the tournament because the players barely knows how the other players game. In short, we are just expecting luck to come our way comes the games.
As a result of this, we ended up 1 win and 5 losses. We won against Ayala Land Inc. - CMG with a slight margin in the overtime. We lost to the host Hyder Consulting Phil. by a big margin, lost to ID 103 (alumni of DLSU) by a few points as we rallied in the fourth quarter to trim the lead but was not enough though. We also lost to Struktura by a small margin. Lost to Design Coordinates Inc. (DCI), also a close fight and finally lost to CE Faculty of DLSU in close fight also.
Overall we gave a good fight to all our opponents but as I tried to analyze where we went wrong, I saw that the reason is simply lack of teamwork. I've seen that there are lots of talent in our team but those talents are simply not combined but is working indepently and you don't want that in a team beause this game is a game of teamwork. One must not rely on his own talent because 5 heads and bodies are always better than 1. Some are just show offs who just want to take the shot just for them to score. Basketball cannot be won by just mere scoring. It is a game of teamwork, defense, patience and good execution. I hope the team learned from the mistakes it did during the tournament. Well see what we can do next care. I hope we could play a better game next time.
But it was fun. It was a great way to unwind and to keep ourselves fit. I also hope that the organizers would be considerate to those teams who comes late because of the traffic and of course of the work they are doing. Organizers can you please be considerate enough? See you next time in the games.

I saw this frebbies site in DatMoney.com which was said to be a scam by many members of it saying that their work for the site was not credited. The truth is I really don't know. So what I did was to go that site and take a look at it and saw that the site was very professional and you will not have thoughts that it is a scam.
One would not spend time, effort and money if that site is to scam people. The very reason why people thinks that the site is a scam is because of not reading what they are going into.
Xpango.com for your information is a site that gives you your selected freebbie (psp, nokia phones, ipods, xbox etc.) if you would participate in their offers or refer it to your friends. You would be able to get the freebbie upon reaching the credit equivalent of such freebbie. I've seen the offers and it requires some cash out from your pocket to participate in those offers. So I thought this would be hard. But referring it to friends, this would not costs me a penny and a little bit easier. So I told myself, why not give it a try.
So if you want to win such free gift, you can CLICK HERE AND SIGN UP and refer it to your friends. Here is the catch, yes there is catch, the catch is your referred friend should also be active on the site, that is, he should also refer it to a friend or participate in Xpango Offers. The credits would be credited to you after your friend has participated in offers or has referred the site to someone else and it takes 3 days for it to be credited. That easy, sign up and earn that freebbie of your choice!

Lately I've been visiting sites of top bloggers and see how they are doing their blogs and get to know each of their styles. One of the well known blogger is John Chow. If you don't know him, well, you should visit his site to know more about him and I'll guarantee you that you will learn from his experiences in the blogosphere.
How much money will you be worth?
A post of his caught my attention. The post is about a site which tells you your future earnings for the next ten years. I don't know the accuracy of this site but it is really a stress reliever as John says it. I tried doing it and surpassed John Chow's future earnings by more than a hundred thousand dollars. John I just beat you! I just forgot my answer so I have nothing to share(It's my secret! Laughs!). But will this happen? That I don't know. Looking at what I have achieved now, I am nothing compared to a John Chow. But who knows, no one can say what the future will bring(I never lose hope!). I am very optimistic of the outcome of what I have started but this will only happen if I will be patient enough to learn new things on the web. The key here would be hard work and apply what I learned and will learn from the materials I've been reading. I never quit. There are lots of bloggers who quit when they feel like they have done everything. Wrong, you have not done your best that is why you haven't prospered. It takes a lot of patience to stay in the blogosphere. One thing that a blogger must remember is to love what he is doing, because if you dont love what you are doing then you get tired of what you do and then you quit. I love what I'm doing. I will continue to learn and reach my goal. Be it yours to.
Don't forget to try the site. It's fun!

Gota Beach, the gateway to other islets and beaches at Caramoan was rented exclusively by the French Production to shoot the famed reality game show. The provincial Government of Camarines Sur has been reported to be paid by the production a total sum of 20 million pesos for the exclusive use of the said beach. It is expected that tourists would visit the beaches of Caramoan after having the season shown just like that of Palawan where the tourists visiting the place increased to 23 percent after the 7th season of Survivor - France was shoot there.
A development plan worth 200 million pesos is to done in Caramoan which includes road networks and an airport to boost the tourism of Camarines Sur. The development would be carefully planned and improved so as not to encounter sewage problems to the place. It was also reported that two hollywood films would be possibly filmed in Caramoan.
I would definitely try to be in the beaches of Caramoan because it is just a two hour ride from our place in Bicol. The pictures shown here are courtesy of Judy Anne Ortiz, a good friend of mine, who visited the place months ago when the 8th season of Survivor - France was being shoot. They were not able to go to Gota Beach because of the restriction posted by the agreement between DENR and the French production but the pictures would definitely show the beauty that is Caramoan.

Just a while ago I saw an article from Inquirer.Net that our good President was endorsing the Mayon Volcano to be part of the new seven wonders and encouraging all the Bicolanos to vote for the perfect cone that we have in Bicol.
If you would visit the site, it list the daily top 77 wonders of the world and you would learn that Mayon Volcano is not even included in the list. But you would see the Tubattaha Reef and Chocolate Hills occupying the 8th and 9th spot respectively. So I suggest that we Filipinos and Bicolanos as well vote for these two wonders as these wonders have that possibility to be included in the list.
The voting of the New 7 Wonders of the World was launched last July 7, 2007 at Lisbon, Portugal and aims to create such seven wonders by online voting of those supporters of each wonder.
To vote for the two wonders from the Philippines you can visit http://www.new7wonders.com/. Let us make these two sites part of the new seven wonders to promote not only our country but our tourism.

This article is intended for blogger and non-bloggers especially to those who want to be in the blogging industry. I say industry for the reason that blogging has now became an income stream to those bloggers who wants to earn money online and not just a hobby or past time and sometimes a diary to remind a person of what has happened into his life. Blogging now has been used for advertising and a very powerful aspect of e-commerce.
If a person really wants to blog, I believe he can, that is my stand and therefore blogging is for all. Some people might say that blogging is for those people who can write articles which would definitely attract readers because of its good content. False! Why did I say so? Simply because you don’t need to write those articles yourself because those articles that you want to write can already be found on the net. One good example is this site, Ezinearticles.com. The other would be GoArticles.com. There are lots of sites out there where you could choose articles which sooth your sites and contains articles of almost all topics of your interests, be it in blogging, advertising, sports, business, news and a lot more. What you should do is to rewrite these articles and maybe improve its content if you have better ideas to supplement that certain article. As business boo writer Robert Kiyosaki says it in his books (Rich Dad, Poor Dad Series), “You don’t need an idea that is new, it just have to be better.” Same as with writing, you just need to improve it because the author might have missed some details. You might also want to give credit to the original author’s work about that article. He would love his work published to your site plus a citation to his work would be very much welcomed. Just be sure not to copy copyrighted articles.
To share, I started blogging because of a random email sent to me by another blogger saying that there is a possibility to earn online through blogging. I would like to thank that girl for that. She is just a college student and doing blogging part-time and monetizing it at the same time. I bet she has made big bucks out of her blog. I recently visited her site and the site meter reflects that the visitors already reached more than a hundred thousand. Her preferred method of monetizing her blog is the infamous Google Adsense. Many earned success online through this advertising program and I can say that this one is a very good start for those bloggers who wants to monetize their blogs.
In that email sent to me, I was not introduced to Google Adsense yet but the idea of earning extra income online stuck to my head and motivated me to research and that lead me to Google Adsense. There are still a lot of advertising programs like Bidvertiser, Ad Brite, Clicksor, Kontera, Widget Bucks, Chitika and a lot more which a blogger can enroll to monetize her blog. The good thing about these advertising programs is that it is for free plus the fact that you’ll earn from it. Sounds good, isn’t it? But I will not discuss in depth all those advertising programs in this article as I intend to write about it in the next articles that I would be writing, so watch out for that.
When I started to blog, I myself is not a writer of any sort. Never had I experienced writing for a school paper, a newspaper or whatever medium of writing that you can think of. But here I am, writing, it has become my passion, my way to financial freedom and hope that it would be yours too. And so I am encouraging all those who want to venture in this online business that is blogging to go on, there are a lot of people who would want to guide you on your way. They could be your business partners in the future. They would help you and you to them. I will be one of those to guide and teach you on your way. I might be a new blogger but I work hard to attain my goal. My hard work is starting to pay off. You and I will reap that success. I want you to be there. See you around!
(The author of this article is a Civil Engineer working full-time for a façade consulting company as a design engineer and doing blogging part-time in his spare time. He wishes to impart all his knowledge to everyone who wants to learn blogging and earn from it. He sees that blogging would be a medium to reach his financial freedom. He intends to share his knowledge using his blog sites name Pamps’ Blog Corner and Pamps’ How To Guide.)

Here is the project exlinks batch 4. This is a meme started by Mommy Ruby and I joined this one knowing that it would explode my technorati ranking by this one. I doubt if it would also increase our google page rank because a certain backlink is not always beneficial to both. I am studying now how to increase google pagerank and I will be sharing what I've known to all my visitors and readers. Just watch out for that.
