of regular online jobs + bingo games

earn online, world wide web, internet, life online

The world wide web can really be quite a mine, not only of up-to-date information, or free + exciting online bingo games, or homeschooling resources {think free printables + other downloadable learning materials for your tots}, but it can also be a perfect place to find possible work opportunities, too. I know you’ve heard of a lot of people who keep regular jobs without even dressing up for work or leaving the comforts of their own living room. In this day + age, I thought that was actually a very convenient way to work. Imagine all the hassle you can eventually do without if you are working in the confines of your home. Plus, you can even continue to go about your day-to-day activities while you do so! It is actually a win-win situation!

Oh well, am just saying since my personal quest to search for a regular job online has finally come to an end. No, I haven’t thrown in the towel as I know those who continually seek will eventually find what they were looking for! + true enough, after months of wishing + searching I’ve just landed me a regular online job. This mum just got lucky to find the right one the other day.  I guess I was also lucky that I have almost 5 years of call center experience under my belt, so I got the job!

Work starts Monday + what I really love about it is that I will get to work in the wee hours of the morning {Manila time} while my little man is fast asleep, that way I can still be a full-time mum during daytime + will just have to squeeze in a few hours of sleep right in between ;)

In the meantime, I have a bunch of training materials to tackle + I have the entire weekend to study + learn the tricks of the trade before I officially start work Monday night. Wish me luck! ;)

when the internet is your only excuse for a social life

internet, life online, world wide web, tips + tricks
I guess this happens to a lot of stay-at-home mums who really struggle to maintain an active social life while keeping watch of their little ones 24/7! Hardly possible if you’d ask me, how in heaven’s name can you  be in two places at one time late at night when you are dutifully tacking your little ones safely to bed and your single friends {or some lucky mummy friends, even} are enjoying the weekend in some plush pub or bonding over a film you have all been planning to see? In fact, for most of us, the only semblance of social life we have is the ones we keep online, like Facebook, Twitter or Google+. It is by far the most convenient in our most demanding schedules, after all.
And for our typical Friday night, instead of being spent in a movie theater, a salon or a pub, it is often spent online keeping in touch with our friends through the exchanges of tweets or browsing through each other’s status updates. And we cannot just afford to spend these precious time in front of the computer as we please, mind you, this is usually done when the little one is sleeping soundly in bed, which is the only moment mum really gets to have time for herself.
We have spent a considerable amount of time online, in fact, that I have listed a number of interesting things to do online to pass the time and I might just have to add in a bit more. Check out my new list of a few more things you might be interested to do while online, aside from spending your time to play bingo free downloads and watch your favorite Korean telenovela on youtube:
  • Look for alternative ways to earn online. The world wide web is not only a gold mine of information, it has also evolved to be an alternative source in looking for more ways to augment the family income. You can try out those paid-to-click sites, or those income-opportunities sites that require just a little amount of investment. Just be careful, though, to ask around for feedback before signing up for any of these sites. I have been a victim of these scam once, it was a good thing Paypal was good enough to return the money I invested.
  • Be abreast with current events by reading news online. If you continuously get to miss the evening news cast on the tellie because your little man would demand the Disney Channel instead, it is a good opportunity to catch up what’s going on with the world by doing a once-over of the networks’ website. It pays to be updated with what is going on outside, especially when you hardly have the time to go out yourself. And who knows you might just stumble into a good news, like a big sale announcement in your favorite shop or a scoop about your favorite actors and actresses! ;)
  • Brush up on your English grammar and vocabulary. I don’t know about you, but I sure get a kick when I read the dictionary when I was younger, the more new words I learn the happier I become. Learning does not have to stop, especially now that I am a mother and am aspiring to teach my little one at home, too, and I can conveniently do that online, too!

I know my list can be quite lame and am sure you can think of more fun and exciting things to do like playing bingo games online. Do drop a comment if you have discovered another exciting new site, right? I would love to check it out! :)

protecting your online reputation

world wide web, life online, internet, tips + tricks

The image you create in your various online accounts can very well be the same impression you will create to colleagues, would-be business associates or employers + the likes, that is why it is best to guard your online reputation, much like you guard your actual one, at all times. This not only applies to those who plan to have full-time or part-time online works, or those who are contemplating on putting up their own online shops anytime soon, this is applicable to every Jack + Jill who spends numerous hours updating their Facebook status, their Twitter pages or their blogs.

Here are a few tips to bear in mind while navigating the tricky world of social media networking:

  • Have you heard of the campaign, “Think Before You Click?” make this your daily mantra as you go online + you will never go wrong
  • Never, + I mean never, post anything negative or derogatory about your place of work. This is not only unethical but can also put you in hot water with your superiors, or worse, jobless.
  • In the same manner, never post anything negative about another person, especially if you do not know them personally. For friends, you can always chat to solve a dispute, no need to air your dirty linens in public, right? :)
  • Do not post photos, especially of your children, that will put you in a bad light. A naked photo of your child may be cute now, but think about the time when he goes to College + everyone in his University has access to his toddler nude pic. I don’t think he will like you for this!
  • Do not make your blog a personal ranting page. Am sure your readers will appreciate you more for it, besides there are plenty of wonderful things to write about other than your dismal experience with a restaurant or an establishment. An objective review of the place will prove beneficial, but try not to be too emotional in writing your post, right?

Those sound pretty basic + easy enough, right? But if you are a professional who seeks to establish an impeccable personal branding online, you can always try reputation.com. They provide invaluable services to help you build that squeaky-clean online image for you + your business. Call them for a free quote or consultation, you can also reach them through chat or via e-mail.

Their site is easy-enough to navigate + you can practically see everything you might need in the landing page. You might want to check out interesting products like MyPrivacy, ReputationDefender + MyReputation. What’s even more interesting is that they offer a money-back guarantee for 90 days!
