Blogging or Vlogging or Both?

Been blogging for quite sometime now, and I thought, "what if I try vlogging?". You know, I'm a type of person who isn't fond of talking a lot. Most of my family and friends could attest to that--and I'm mostly chatty only when I'm close to the person I'm with, so vlogging looks like a daunting task for me.

But you know, vlogging could be good or bad. Why? Like I said, I don't talk too much, and I'm aftraid that if I do vlogs, I might just end up with videos with a lot of dead air. Not that I can't edit it or something but let's just say I like posting with minimal edits, hence the blog. Also, I just thought about it and realized that once a video has been posted, there's no going back and editing. Unlike on blog posts, I can come back any time, in case there were some edits/updates needed. The good thing about vlogging is it's a way of giving a "face" to the voices behind blogs.

You see, YouTube or vlogging in general i…

Globe At Home Go Unli Broadband Plan 1899 Review

It's been a long while since I've last reviewed our upgraded Globe DSL plan which was the plan 1299 with up to 10mbps download speed. Since I work from home and I do a lot of screensharing (via GotoMeeting) and VOIP calls (via Skype), it takes up the 100GB too easily. And it.is.not.good when this happens.  Since the internet connection here at home is shared by several other devices ie mobile phones, tablets, it almost always doesn't end well for me #sadlife.

Anyhoo, that's when we've decided to upgrade to the 15mbps plan 1599 which gives us an additional 50GB (150GB in total) for . It was good, during the first few months, but somehow, I felt like the data consumption went a few more notches higher as it could no longer last until the end of each month (still wondering about this). Fortunately, (and expectedly) a Loyalty department agent from Globe called again (the timing is so on point) for a "free" upgrade to the 15mbps plan for 1899, without data ca…

Got Mail! PLDT-Smart MVP Rewards Card

Today was definitely suprising! I've got this in the mail though I wasn't expecting any delivery. Turns out, Smart actually sent this card--for FREE!
Yes, it's for free for Smart and  PLDT subscribers who opted in for MVP rewards. Unlike the regular PayMaya account, one has to buy a card for PhP 150, then link it.

I've got to be honest, I'm impressed! Though it might take me a while to gather that much points to use it. I might just try loading it up and use it instead on any online store. I just hope, though, that it can be loaded up using PayPal  (that's where my funds actually come from) and it would be much more convenient that way. Like I said, I work from home and most transactions that I had to do, I do it online if it's possible. I pay  my bills ie mobile phone and internet plan, SSS contributions, PAG-IBIG contributions, (dang, I'd pay for PhilHealth online if I can, too). But, yeah, it's the Philippines and developments in tech is a bit f…
