Anything mommy blogger related here. This features blog events coverage. This blog also publish press release and write ups. Tips and tutorials on how to be an effective blogger.
This also include a list of top mommy blog in the Philippines.
In addition, here is the 5 SIMPLE STEPS TO BE A MOMMY BLOGGER:
1. Create a blog name that will represent you as a mommy blog. Sometimes it's good to include the noun mommy or mother or nanay.
2. Create an email the same as your blog name for branding purpose, in other words, for identification. After that, you can proceed to step 3 which is actually one of the most challenging part.
3. Open a blog. It has been debated for so many times which is the best blogging platform to use. For starters, I usually recommend blogspot because it is free. On the other han, if you are ready to shell out money, wordpress org is the best.
4. Design your blog. This sound like an easy task to do, it is actually, however, it can be very time consuming. The number of free templates for a blog is endless. To help you decide, set your blog tone and color. Will it be a dark themed blog? Light? What will be the primary colors? And from there, searching will be easier.
5. Lastly and most importantly, Start writing. The best way to start this is to introduce yourself. Likewise, you can also create a list of why you started a mommy blog. Or you can mention top 10 things that you would want your future readers to know about you.
When I recieve the einvite, didn’t read it that much, just took note of the place and the time. It escaped me that the event will be a special ceremony that will celebrate all bloggers who believe in giving babies around the world faster growth through good sleep.
I am a believer so I won’t let this pass. As you know in my previous entries, I really believe that it is through good sleep that my babies will grow better and this I do with the help of Johnson’s Baby Bedtime Products. I use the Johnson’s Baby Bedtime Bath as their soap and the lotion as my massage lotion, which I do almost every night. The powder is an after bath regimen for them.
The event was held in Aquaknox Restaurant & Lounge located at 800 Arnaiz Street, cor Amorsolo, San Lorenzo Village, Makati City. The event was attended by a lot of mommy bloggers and mommies, old time and new believers. I was not able to mingle around but I knew some of the attendees..

I want all the mothers I can reach to experience the joy and the bond bedtime routines gives us. Thank you so much for this and for bringing Bedtime Discoveries to us.

When I started blogging, I have no idea how a template is done.. as in no idea at all.. and then I heard about designer’s charging up to $100. At first I thought it was exorbitantly priced and then I learned how to make a template and if you have no idea how.. you better shut up.. Template design is not all about images, it’s about putting your time, your effort into it. I tweaked all my blogs and so I now that creating a template is not as simple as blinking, yeah the codes can be recycled but time is the issue. It will take a day or more to customize a certain site, from header, to footer, to the color of the hover..
Have you tried tweaking your blog? Changing the color of the sidebar? How about trying to fit in the header? Or changing the font of your post title? Do you know that every element in your blog is being taken care of your blog designer? Let me make it elaborate for you.. to the point that you will learn how to design your own site.. First there’s the header. Creating one is really really easy. All you have to do is look for an image in the web that will fit the character or the theme of your client. It can take from 2 hour or more, depending on the image you client want. So if one will charge $5 per hour, a usual header will be $10. And then there’s the background, the color of the fonts, the size of the wrapper,the size of the padding, the codes, the FFFFFF, the 000000 and all the other values that need to be changed. This will take 4 to 6 hours.. so that’s $30. There’s favicon and if you have no idea what is it, then use your Google. Editing and creating this can take an hour or less.. so let’s just say it’s $5. And the footer which is a bit easy so let’s just say that it will take an hour, so that’s plus $5. And if you are not fan of a plain background, you can customize it, which will take another hour, so that’s $5 again. A signature can take a lot of time specially if it is animated. If you are not a designer, of course you have no idea how it is done, so once again, shut up. Let’s just say that a signature can take 3 hours, so that’s $15.
Oh wait, let’s do some math.. $75.. and we haven’t started with the installation yet.. the testing and last minute tweaking.. and we’re talking about just a $100!
Hmmm.. this is getting longer.. but anyways, if you are not cheap and pretending to know it all and have a less than mediocre header in your site and want to have a fabulous blog, I highly recommend WAHMaholic Blog Designs.
Oh guys.. I remember, designs and arts and beauty is to its own eyes.. some people may find a header blah but to the owner it may be the best thing.. so I take it back.. if you want to be satisfied with your blog designs… head on to WAHMaholic Blog Designs
The owner of WAHMaholic Blog Designs paid me $100 for this review.. ridiculous eh? That’s what I do, I am being paid to write reviews.. and I wrote this for less than an hour.. and I earned $100 for that.. oh my I love my job and I will never do blog designs.. it is one of the lowest paid kind of job.
