How Much Time Do You Spend for Blogging?

I asked the question because I realized that reading feeds and posting an entry can take a lot of time. When we went to US (for two weeks) last June, I had 100 unread feeds in my Google reader despite the fact that from time to time during those two weeks, I read the feeds for my favorite blogs whenever I got a chance. It took me sometime to read all of them - not to mention that I also had tons of e-mails to read both official and personal.

My friend once told me that she can write a blog in 15 minutes - but that is simple blog - no photos and no links. I am really amazed because a simple blog will take me more than 15 minutes to write. I find that adding photos makes one's blog more interesting but can be time-consuming as well especially if you need to re-size, etc. No, I'm not whining I am just frustrated because I have a lot of things in mind that I wanted to write about but I don't have the time.

So how much time do you devote to posting and reading blogs?

I am Giong Back to the Philippines!!!

I remember the famous group MENUDO (where Ricky Martin was a former member) had a song entitled "I am Going Back to the Philippines." I don't remember much as I was only eight then but I think the song was created when they returned to the Philippines for a concert.

Anyway, we're going home for a month of vacation. I am excited to see my family, relatives and old friends. We're planning to do a lot of things and visit some interesting places. Originally, our plan is to go up North but since it's already rainy season, we might not push through. Alternative plan is to go to Palawan. We'll see what will happen.

I already started packing and guess what? One balik-bayan box is already filled with presents. I have shipped a large box last June and we shipped another one before we left United States. Hahahahaha.... So right now, I have three boxes full of goodies. I still need to pack other things (my clothes, old clothes and some stuff I wanna get rid of).

Gosh, I always have this indescribable super excited feeling whenever we go back to the Philippines for a visit especially when the plane hits the ground and the flight attendant starts her PA by saying, "MABUHAY! We have just landed at Ninoy Aquino International Airport......."

There's really no place like home!

Log-on Problems Finally Resolved

I couldn't log-on since Friday. I thought it was just a network problem but after a few days, there must be something wrong with my laptop. Curious, I tried using the other laptop at home. I still cannot log-on but atleast it gave me possible solution to my problem. I deleted the laptop's cookies as recomended and like magic, I am online again. I think, I need to do the same with my laptop.

Technology - it just drives me nuts sometimes!
