Moleskine Blog Hopping Giveaways Suspended

Due to Typhoon Ondoy’s aftermath, we are temporarily suspending the Blog Hopping Moleskine Giveaways contest series. We like the focus of people to be about helping others.

Glenda of Oodles of Goodles was placed in a very uncomfortable position of declaring a winner on Oct. 1 amidst the recent events. Thanks Glenda for your professionalism and understanding. Thank you also to Rico and Gail for working with us in suspending the contest series.

For now, let’s help. Thank you very much.

Note: Winner of the Oodles of Goodles will be posted here as soon as it is available.

Why You Should Get Pingdom For Your Website?

– This is an unsolicited post.

Pingdom tracks a website’s uptime and performance. In the unlikely incident your website goes down (that 0.0005% downtime), you will be alerted through e-mail.


Pingdom.com started offering one website or server for monitoring for free a few months ago. Since a monitoring service is something I feel that’s essential for any website I signed up. Early this morning I received my first downtime e-mail alert:

Pingdom email

Website went back up after 3-4 minutes without issues.

I strongly suggest you take advantage of the free website monitoring offer of Pingdom.com. This is one way of silently monitoring the reliability of your webhost, besides it’s free – www.pingdom.com
