My Writing Plan at Blogjob

My Writing Desk

My Writing Desk

I think everyone who writes online has its own writing plan. Just like our fellow blogjobber @brendamarie whom I got this idea on what to write for today.

The first thing I do when I am online is to

  1. check blogjob comments on my new published posts and reply the comments.
  2. check  comments on my other sites posts here and reply the comments on my posts.
  3. then I check on the sites if there are interesting posts for me to read.
  4. check if my friends who mostly interacted with me wrote a new post. Read their posts and comments on  these posts.
  5. check the posts of the new members, read them, comments on them.
  6. check the groups and forums and interact there.
  7. then I write more than 300 words on whatever I have in my mind.
  8. share my posts to social media sites.


There are many things for me to think about when writing an article or a post. I think about if what I write is interesting to read. I think about what could I write that help other readers. So I think about DIY or recipe posts to write. Mostly I write about being a Filipino expat here in Germany. I have a niche for this. This is the site where I often write my posts. Then my cooking site. It´s easy for me to write often in my cooking site as I cook often and I am fond of experimenting and tweaking the food that I serve for my hubby or friends and relatives. I am fond of baking and decorating my cakes as well and sometimes I write a recipe of my cake. I have Philippines travel site but I am careful what to write because I have written already some travel articles in my main writing site in Hubpages. I don´t want to repeat myself and might cause trouble of posting a duplicate.


I have 6 sites in Blogjob and from these sites I choose where I could write in a certain day. It´s very seldom that I reach my 150 points limit (just now only 100 points limit) as I don´t like to stress myself and besides that I am often busy with my offline part time job. What about you fellow blogjobbers? Do you have any writing plan?

Changing The Theme Of My Blog

Spree river in Berlin, Germany.

Spree river in Berlin, Germany.

Good morning to you Guys! Well, it is already morning in the Philippines. It is 1:30 in the early morning here in Germany. I know it is too late for me to go to bed but I can wake up until noon when I like. It´s Sunday and it´s a resting day for me. I was so tired coming from work this Saturday evening that I had to take a break after dinner. I slept for an hour and started updating my blog My Kitchen and I after that.


I changed the theme of my cooking blog when I was not able to upload a photo of my bitter melon article. When I clicked the Add Image to upload my photo, it was not functioning. I thought my laptop was already “Kaputt” and so I logged off from my laptop and used my tablet instead and it was still the same. It disturbed me much that there was no photo to show what kind of vegetable bitter melon was. Now I have the photo but with a new blog appearance.


Selecting and changing the theme of my cooking blog, putting up the right color, adding widgets and getting rid of my Amazon disclosure text took a lot of my time.  Have you changed the appearance of your blogs? Is it allowed to put my referral link on a text of my widget? I wonder. If not, I have to delete it. Btw, how many ad links on the sidebar are we allowed to put on our blogs? Am I allowed to add my Zazzle link here? I know that some of you here are experts on this online ad business. Please share your advice below this post.


Anyway, I have to do a lot of blogging this Sunday afternoon as I have not written much these last few days. I have to get the 10,000+ points and redeem before flying to my beloved Angus. I may not be able to write more often when I am in my home country due to the weak internet connection.


So long my friends and thank you for your visit. It´s already 2 a.m.  Good night! Ciao! Gute Nacht!

My New Writing Gadget

Samsung Galaxy Tab A PNG

Hello everyone! How´s your day? Mine is not as bad as I thought it would be. I was free from work today as I am sick. I have written this in my latest post


My boss had given me a free day today so I could rest. I woke up late for lunch but no apetite for eating. I spent my whole afternoon in bed with my new gadget Samsung tablet. I was able to rest and was able to log in at Blogjob. Actually, I intended to sleep the whole afternoon after taking herbal teas and my selfmade ginger root tea but I thought I would be wasting my time in sleeping and so I blogged. Well, just reading and commenting others posts.


I bought a new writing gadget for me from my hard earned money from massaging clients. I bought Samsung Galaxy Tab A-SM-T555… for 279 Euro a few days ago and I like it. At first I bought Trextor tablet but it was not functioning although it was new. My hubby and I returned it to the shop and exchanged it with this Samsung tablet which my best friend  recommended me. It was even cheaper than Trekstor (299€).


Then we bought a bluetooth universal keyboard. I have just tried the keyboard with my new  tablet but I couldn´t log in at Blogjob. I was wondering why and so I wrote some sentences on my office word to find out the problem. The problem was and still is, the letter Z and Y are interchanged. It was good to know about that. Then I couldn´t find the “@” where it should be. I found other failures too but I didn´t have time to check them all as I have not written a post for today. So, I left it for another day. We don´t like to go to the shop again and complain but I have to. I will return it because it costed me 35 €.


Do you have any problems with a new gadget that you have bought before? Did you return it to the shop? We have 14 days to return this keyboard. I could buy something from the return money if I can´t find a new one I like.
