mommy romarianne: prosperity's mom

I am so happy that our Wonderful Mama of RJ invited me to be the blog party host for today.  If your interested you can be our party host too or better yet  join us at  Facebook Page.

As a host, i have to introduce myself for the other bloggers to learn about me:
My name is Ria Rosaura-Romero, 29 years old, a wife and a mother to one beautiful daughter. I love to cook and eat. I like to read books and collect just anything. I love weddings, adventures, music, sea, park, and everything God created. I am a person of unpredictable characteristics, stubborn yet soft hearted, active yet demure.

That is what you can read in my all about me section in almost all the sites and other social networking that I have joined.  I believe that some of you have known me that much although we have not seen each other yet.  I am very vocal to who I am and I do remember sharing a part of me and my likes in my birthday post.
To those who didn't know me:

I am Romarianne (Yes, that's my full name)
some of you know me as melandria -
because that's what you can see in almost all my post
melandria is the name of my baby - it's a combination of
hubby's nickname (mel) and my nickname (ria)

I was born Romarianne Belarmino Rosaura in a small barrio of Magsaysay, Sta Fe. Romblon at the time Pope John Paul II is visiting Manila.  I was brought by my mother in Manila when I was three months old and was reared by my grand mother Romana  on which my name was taken by my father.

I love to read books and collect just anything;



movies, figurines, shells

I am happily married, Yes, he's not the man of my dreams but i could not find anyone who could understand and care for me more than my la-lavs.

After seven years of waiting and two miscarriage, our Peachy (Prosperity Melandria) was born
on January 2, 2008 via cs - read the full story here:

Before I have learned about blogging I was totally addicted to Facebook (LOL)
You can read my entry here: Signs that your a facebook addict

We love to go to the beach or on a nearby swimming pool

Caramoan Escapade

My family is my life, my world and my hope and inspiration.

I work as a stenographer at MTCC, Naga City.

I love joining contests and winning freebies too!

contests around the net, magazine and newspaper.

cecile, the blogger mama from texas

It is my pleasure to be invited to host the BlogParty today. And I would like to thank, RJ's Mama for that. I am sure some of the blogger know me already, but for those who haven't yet...let me introduce myself first. I am Cecilia, but some people call me Ces, Cel, Cecile, Cici, and Celia. I am from the state of Texas; a stay at home mom, mother of a 5 year old boy who enjoys cooking, outdoors, blogging and going out with family and friends. I am an active member of LDS church.
I have been blogging since 2008; thanks to a friend, Juliet who introduced me to the world of blogging. Living overseas away from my parents, siblings and friends is not easy, and my 6 blogs became my outlet....they keep me occupied especially when I am alone. My blogs mostly talk about my personal and family life...the things we love to do and enjoy. The other 2 blogs is all about foods and health.

Thanks for dropping by and looking forward to seeing you soon back in my blogs :-)!

clang of kizuna

I'm Clarissa, you can call me Clang for short! I enjoy good coffee, taking pictures, cooking and spending time with my family.

I guess you're wondering why I named my blog Kizuna that sometimes Kizuna is mistakenly read as Kusina lol! Kizuna is my favorite japanese word ( 絆 ) , a very strong japansese word for me--- it means ties and bonding. I blog about my family bondings because they're my passion and that my life with them is busy, lively and most of the time FUN!

I started Kizuna blogging loaded with photos last July 2008 at Fs and transferred them here at blogger on December 2008 ( and that until now I don't know what date to held my blogversary! Help!! I haven't held one lol! ). Kizuna is my outlet and you' ll find here my kids milestones, my life in Japan, my homemade bentou ( lunch box), some of my recipes, our family bonding, our family adventures, places, foods and culture in Japan and some memes.

If you have the time, you can browse for some of the archives here--I don't have other blogs to plug on so yun na lang lol!

I love blogging and visiting other blogs but most of the time I don't always respond to comments as much but I do try by returning the visits back to their site and answer them there. There's just no enough time in a day for sometimes!

Thank you and I really appreciate your precious time of dropping by here! God bless!And Oh!!HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY TO ALL THE MOMS IN THE WORLD!!

willa, the fickle minded mom of food trip friday

I feel honored to being asked to host the Blog Party today by a fellow blogger ,RJ Mama.She's the brain behind this weekly blog party and I personaly think that it is a brilliant idea. Not only it will help our blog to get more linky love but it will also help us, the bloggers in a personal level, in meeting more friends.

Anyway, enough with my lousy attempt to break the ice, that's another reason why I don't do a real world party. I'm not good at it, whenever I got invited, I usually end up in a corner and just enjoying myself watching people do crazy stuff.But this one is a party I think I can handle.

Here we go, I started blogging way back in 2002-2003. Around those times, blogging are very very simple. My blog was hosted by blogspot, the best platform for beginners. Back then, some blogger used to pay so their blog will be ads-free, but now,it's the other way around,we get paid,so our blogs have ads. :D. My blog usually consist of my senseless thoughts and ideas, a post of my favorite songs, favorite recipe, or whatever cute stuff I found online. Then I stopped blogging when my youngest was born in 2005 then I decided to make a comeback in 2007 when me and the boys went back to Manila for vacation. I feel bored and I thought maybe I can do blogging again.

I was very surprised how the blogosphere change in such a short span of time during my absence. Most of my BFF (Blogging Friend Forever :D ) are talking about blogging for money, then there's the meme all over, there's a "blog party" here and there among other things.That's when I decided to create my another first blog called FickleMinded and also accept my first paid posting job thru the referral of my long time online friend whom I meet thru a public forum.Why FickleMinded?It's a long story but if you are a woman,I guess you already know the answer. :D.Since then, I started or somewhat restarted my blogging life again and this time,I'm more serious than before, at least I think I am :D. This,I consider as my personal blog, most of the post, if not all, is all about Me,Myself and I :yes:

After another few months, I also decided to make a photoblog which I called PixelMinded this time.Like I said,memes are now very common and I love doing it. So I created this photoblog just for that purpose alone,plus I started enjoying photography but the photograhpy doesn't seem to enjoy me, especially when I bought my first DSLR back in 2009.This year,I also joined an all-year round meme called Project 365.You were about to post one picture a day,but the lazy me is now only on it's 42nd Project :D. If you will see all my pictures, just remember, I only said,I like photography, it doesn't mean I'm good at it. :D

Also the same year, my parenting blog was created to documents my parenting journey with my two boys and I came up with the name, SmartMommy . That's the blog where I jot down my life as a parents, especially raising two boys, raised them with the combination of American and Filipino cultures. And no,I'm not that smart, but my boys are and they are trying to outsmart me from time to time but never succeeded anyway. :D It's a tough job but I coudn't have it the other way.:D

After being in a blogging world again for more than two years,I met and found more friend with common interest, to keep the friendship alive, I create and hosted a meme of my own. It's a weekly food meme called, Food Trip Friday, april of 2009, and no,I'm not a good cook, my cooking only taste better if you are starving to death, :D. For the first few weeks, there's only 10 of us,bloggers,who shared our love for food, after a year, the participants is now more than 30 and each week, we discover something new and feels like we travel the world,hence the title, Food Trip.:yes:
And the last but not the least, since talking err blogging is now my favorite thing to do and thought that those blogs are not enough to express everything I want to say,I created this blog last February.:yes: Just in case you are wondering what happen to my first blog ever, I don't know,I already forgot my logging info and I think blogspot delete it due to inactivity.

So,there you go, party's over people, move on with your life and I hope I didn't bored you to death reading my post. Let's drink to that!

mhel, the techie entrepreneur

Hello everyone! I'm Mhel a.k.a. blankPixels of Just Another Pixel.

I'm currently hosting my first ever blog contest over on my blog - Make a Wish. Check out the prizes and mechanics on the contest page.

As of now, I am maintaining 3 blogs:


Just Another Pixel - My personal blog where I write about my experiences and things that interest me. I also share tutorials/guides here like how to setup scrolling blogroll on Blogger, how setup scrolling comments on Blogger, and how to setup domains in Moniker.

Pinay Online Money Maker - My blog about how I make money online. I write articles and guides on my favorite online money-making programs/websites. This blog is dedicated to newbies as I make sure the guides are as detailed as possible. I also post my income/payment proofs here.

Certified Foodies - This is still a new blog. I share this food blog with my life partner Mai and my brother Kenneth. It's all about our love for food.

I've been blogging since 2004, but most of my posts were exclusive. I started Just Another Pixel in 2008. I don't know a lot of bloggers yet intimately, but that's one of my New Year's resolution this 2010 - to meet and get to know more bloggers, especially those that I follow silently.

Enough about my blogging. Let me share some things about ME. I've been with my life partner Mai (yes, a girl, too) for over 4 years now. She's a Cebuana and I'm a pure Manilenya. We are both technically experienced and knowledgeable about computers so we decided to stop working in call centers (my last job was a Team Leader in Cebu) and manage our own business - an internet cafe. We spend most of our days in front of our computers because of our business. However, we make sure we find time for ourselves to go on a "date" monthly.

I am a dog lover, along with the rest of my family and my partner Mai. We've got 4 dogs at home - Choco, Negra (formerly known as Minzy), Levi and Stacie.

I'm a big fan of hit series NCIS, Glee, House, Fringe and Grey's Anatomy. I also love reality TV shows Survivor, American Idol, America's Next Top Model, and Project Runway.

Lastly, I'm proud to say that it's over a year since my last stick of cigarette. Yes, I've quit smoking and I'm now in my quest to losing the weight and everything's going according to plan.

Thank you for taking the time in reading my post. Join my blog contest, aight?
