You read it right, peepz.  Kaye of Random WAHM Thoughts and Pehpot's (Make or Break)Blogversary Contest are hosting the BIGGEST blog contest of the year that is giving away $500 in cash and prizes!!! These two are my two good friends in the blogging world, Marces for life and two of the best bloggers I've met in blogosphere. Do I need to mention here that these two are review extraordinaire? They are, that's why we need to follow the guidelines they set for the contest . Click on the contest banner and important guidelines will be laid before your eyes.

BIG Blogversary Contest

I should say this is one of the state-of-the-arts celebration of blogversary. The winners will not be picked up by luck, chance or by fate. Winners will emerge through the numbers of points earned through review, referral, and comments. Of course the highest pointer will win $200! It's enough to buy the Guess Watch for Ladies - Polished Silver-Tone and Diamante G Bracelet Band I've been eyeing for a decade..Yaaayyyy..Enough for my blahs. Instead of reviewing the major sponsors and blog about this contest in order to qualify. They made it easier for all of us. All you need to do is just blog about their contest and just copy and paste the codes they prepared for you to QUALIFY! Then you could start earning points as much as you want.   If you need to cram your activities on your overloaded schedule just to be with this contest , go on. You won't regret of what you'll reap (don't blame me with your acne/pimples..LOL!).

Hurry!!! this contest ends on February 28.

Pen, Paper, Pan

 Pen, Paper, Pan is a unique and catchy blog title for me. The author Yami used to work in a newspaper. In other words, she's a writer, thus, Pen, Paper and now that she's a stay-at-home mom for Naomi and Khalil, she used Pan to represent her being a SAHM that cooks. It's a brilliant idea, Marce Yami!

She just started blogging a year ago when her husband persuaded her to put up a website for her new clippings particularly stories about people living with HIV/AIDS. Her main website Mom writes for a cause was born out from that concept followed by Yam’s Files . Later on, as she learned her ways in blogging , meeting new friends and being introduced to joining sites that pays her to blog she decided to make another domain in wordpress platform to house anything about her experiences as a wife , a mommy, and anything that merits the authors attention. Thus, our stay-at-home mom just turns herself to a full time work-at-home mom.

The layout is fine with me with it's yellow background. It's presentable and no clutters of widget around. It's a 2-column layout , by the way. The header is appropriate to her blog title showing a lady in her kitchen with a pen and paper and a ...pot...instead of a pan. It's not a problem anyway coz the totality of the layout's presentation is excellent! She gave credit to Marce Pehpot for designing the header while Marce Kaye coded it.I just wish the author added archives on her sidebar for easy navigation of past entries.

As a writer herself, she knows what to write that responds to the interests and needs of our readers like her post about the benefit of using organic products and breaking the AIDS barrier just to mention a few. Visit her site for more informative issues.

Super Gulaman : an outlet of a funny teacher

Teachers come in different types. There are friendly teachers, funny, lenient, strict, and ideal. I could say I'm a combination of a friendly and ideal teacher. A friendly teacher, as the very term suggests, acts like a friend for his/her students. A teacher-friend, in fact, combines both the guidance of a teacher and the understanding of a friend. We all, at some point of time, aspire for an understanding teacher. Such a teacher acts like our friend, philosopher and guide. An ideal teacher is the one we respect from our heart. He/she acts as a guide to the students, while not pushing them too much. Such a perfect motivates them and boosts their morale. He/she tries to encourage the students and refrains from criticizing them.

A funny teacher is like a God-sent to the students. Such a teacher always wants to see his/her students smile ands make learning a pleasurable experience. They are not clumsy, as most people think them to be. Rather, they are witty and bring in humor in the most subtle form even on blogs like the author of Super Gulaman.

Why do I perceived that he's a teacher? As I read on the history of Super Gulaman- a humorous blog in Filipino dialect, it's his Filipino-Chinese student who gave him the idea of using Super Gulaman as a fictional superhero like batman, superman, spiderman who help spread laughter in a gloomy world.

His blog features stories of the author's expedition of life where readers will join him in laughter until teardrops fall...LOL! Stories can be found on the author's sidebar so you'll just choose titles that fancies you. It's another blog that will brighten my day when I'm bored.

Cotton Candy Buzz

It's a nice thing to meet other ESL teachers sharing about themselves through blogging. Cotton Candy Buzz is one of them. The author Riza is an ESL teacher and a computer teacher at the same time . We shared the same belief that being a teacher is a noble and worthy endeavor. Her first love is teaching English and writing too, I presumed.

Cotton Candy Buzz was brainchild out from the concept that there are sweet and colorful things in life that are beneficial and there's a need for it to be shared. The author shared her personal experiences in this blog and it is open too for product reviews due to her interest in wrting meningful entries. You would know more about her site through the "About the Site" page. She clearly lays out to new readers what would they expect from this blog. I appreciate her for doing that. It's necessary to have such page to orient visitors and new readers to give them background of what the blog is all about instead of just wandering around.

There's no question about her pink layout. I find it so feminine, neat, presentable and page elements are in order. There's no distraction when you're reading her posts. Navigation of the site is just a snap.

The author has a knack of an effective writer. She writes in simple, direct and smooth-flowing language as if she's really conversing in front of me while reading her posts. She writes simply but concise. Sentences have no unnecessary words and no unnecessary sentences on paragraphs. It's a blog with quality.
