My First Time to Cash Deposit

7 01 2010

I had to rush to BDO Los Banos earlier today because I had to pay for my website coming soon. So what happened was when I entered the bank, those paper we needed to fill up for any kind of deposit was there. i needed to do “Cash Deposit” so I picked up a form and filled it out. Now at the bottom, it’s where we can write down how much will we deposit, there was a table with denominations,pieces and total. Surprisingly, I didn’t know what denomination really is. The definition in my mind’s dictionary was it was how many something is but I wasn’t sure. Fortunately, there was a girl beside me and I asked her what it was. It was embarrassing but my site’s so delayed already it was suppoused to be launched the end of this week. Then at last after filling out the forms, I had to fall in line with different people and I even saw my English Teacher,people with LOTS of coins which I don’t know why and for what. And then it was my turn, everything went well, payed 50PHP for the charge since the money was to be deposited in a BDO Branch in an SM Mall at the Metro. But for a little something before it was my turn, I had to ask the woman I spoke earlier if there was a charge when depositing money to an account based at Metro Manila, she said “Nako meron ata, 50Pesos pero sa BPI walang charge kahit san.” Nag advertise pa! Coolness.





Linkage: Digital Photography School

6 01 2010

Another great site I’ve found is Digital Photography School which offers a lot of digital photography tips for an amateur or a professional photographer. The guy behind the site is Darren Rowse who previously owned a camera review site. The site has an atmosphere of a cyber learning environment since the way the tips are presented almost gives me the feel of being in formal training only, I read the lesson and I teach myself that way. They not only give you tips on general photography but they have some tips on a more specific level like how to do Food Photography. I have personally read their basic training while still dreaming for my Canon EOS 500D and even without the camera yet, I still have what I learned on my head right now. For me the best tip I got from the site is a very simple tip in photography called the “Rule of Thirds”. Well, this is it for now and watch out for the next linkage! :)





3 Things Blogging On WordPress For The Past 7 Months Taught Me

4 01 2010
  • Formality

I realized on my walk with WordPress that we can be crazily formal. Because when all is just crazy, no one would understand you anymore and it is very important to keep in touch with who’s reading your blog.

  • You don’t need a lot of money

Before considering blogging on WordPress I have tried a lot of times to have my own website FREE. But now it’s clear to me, that’s never gonna happen without letting out some cash off my wallet. Though, there are free stuff on the net that allows you to blog what you want(e.g Multiply). And FYI, social networks are different from blog sites. There, so from there on WordPress was the practically best thing on my opinion that offers you to just blog out what you have in mind. Besides those social networking and micro-blogging sites.

  • Patience+Creativity=Sucess in the blogosphere

In my blogging experience, I’ve learned not to be KSP (“attention hungry”) on the internet, desperate for page views. You’ll just get burned out if you do otherwise. Draining your creativity when it pops out freshly isn’t going to help, you’ll notice after a few days you’re coming up with non sense blog posts already and then soon you’ll lose your readers. So that’s it for the patience part, for the creativity part, it’s pretty self-explanatory. We can come up with anything with our brains, it’s using it wisely that’s a challenge. ;)





Linkage: CreativeMYK

1 01 2010

CreativeMYK is one of the websites I encountered with a podcast I watch and it has a great and extensive collection of artworks created by church media designers all around the world. They also offer free downloads on some of the artworks here, some are in .psd,.eps,.ai or so… Their search engine has the capability to analayze what file type do you need for easier acess to their files already so you won’t have any trouble in finding artworks which you can download. You can even get your own account and be a contributor and share your creativity with other church media designers. I am also a contributor and so far I am enjoying another feature the site has where you can critique other’s artwork constructively on how they can improve their designs. You can even rate them with stars! So enjoy this “Linkage” And tune in next time for another one. :)
