There’s shark meat in your food! Help Save Thresher Sharks

Whenever I see news about endangered species being captured, I get angry because I can’t understand why other people have the heart to see these species suffer. One of those endangered species are the Thresher Sharks. The Philippines is among the top 5 countries in the world with high shark diversity. And only in Monad Shoal near Malapascua Island, Daanbantayan in the Philippines where you can dive with the thresher sharks. The presence of thresher sharks has turned Malapascua Island into a major dive tourist attraction, helping the local residents to recover after the devastation that tropical typhoon Yolanda (international name: Haiyan) brought to many parts of the country in 2013.

Paisley Pretty [Site Makeover]

Have you noticed any changes here? I hope so. This blog has been up for 5 years already and it’s only now that I’ve decided for a make-over. It’s because this blog is my first love, it has more posts than my other blogs and I’m nervous to lose all of these posts during the site overhaul. But yeah, I took the plunge after moving to a reliable host and after deciding the site’s design. Of course, the only person that I can think of who can prettify my site is Patricia of Fancy Girl Design Studio. She already prettified my 2 blogs, and it’s now time to work her magic on this blog.

The Peg

Far from the floral background this site used to have, I want it to be just plain white. I want it to be clean. Buuut….. I want the header to be fabulous. But I tried to veer away from florals, cartoonish designs. I thought of Cath Kidston, but it’s too floral. And then I stumbled upon Vera Bradley patterns… paisley! OMG!

Best Web Hosting Providers 2010

For bloggers like me, having a reliable website hosting is very very important. Advertisers for my blogs and readers must always access my blogs any time of the day that’s why a 100% uptime is necessary. So far I only have two web hosts, my first is from Mommy Rubz of Mom’s Hosting and the second one is Blue Host. I’m satisfied with Mommy Rubz’s services because she helped me thought the baby steps of blogging, hosting and other things a newbie blogger needs to know. She assisted me in migrating from Blogspot to WordPress blog. And since I was able to grasp some tips on setting up new blogs and buying new domains, I decided to try getting a new web host which is Blue Host. I chose this after reading different webhosting reviews and taking into consideration what I really need from a hosting service.

Every year, various sites lists down their top web hosts. presents the Top Web Hosting Providers for 2010:

  1. Web Hosting Hub
  2. InMotion
  3. iPage
  4. Web Hosting Pad
  5. Host Gator

Join YouSayToo and earn more money online

Are you still looking for more ways to earn money online? Aside from paid posts, pay per clicks, and text link ads and other money earning opportunity available online, have you heard of revenue sharing? The first revenue sharing program I’ve tried is on, I added this blog Everything Nice! a year ago and I’m happy with the results. There’s a significant increase in my adsense earnings since then. Maybe because YouSayToo comes out first on Google search sometimes and my blog content lands on the first page of Google. I indicated my Adsense ID in YouSayToo so that every time my content earns clicks, Iget to have a percentage of the earnings from YouSayToo.

Searching for a new WordPress theme

Over the Holy Week vacation, I’m such in a bored state and suddenly I found myself buying a new domain. I won’t reveal yet my new website but I’m planning to make it as my more personal blog. It’s still in WordPress so I’m still on the look-out for cool wordpress themes.

I found some nice ones at, they have plenty of free wordpress themes. I fancy the red and white theme below but I also like the LV background of the other theme:

Adgitize proof of payment (February 2010)

After joining Adgitize last year, I received my first payment from them, $12.16. I wasn’t expecting to earn from them since I use Adgitize primarily to gain more traffic to my blog and not as a source of income. But a message from Paypal showed this:
