• Twenty Sixteen Goals

    The thing I love most about January is the opportunity for everyone to start over. Starting off with a clean slate. I used to be critical about those who declare resolutions at the beginning of the new year, but if it’s the only way to keep their hopes up, then who am I to judge them? It’s utterly hypocritical of me when I make resolutions for the new year myself, isn’t it?

  • My Essential Blogging Tools and Resources

    This post has been sitting in my drafts for months, and I finally got around to finishing it today. As you may have heard, blogging is fun, but is also tedious. Gone are the days when one just whips up a post without even thinking about what cover photo should go with it. However, blogging, like technology, evolves over time. 

    I didn’t care about the aesthetics of my blog nor the many other things that comes with it until about a year ago when I started reading other people’s blog, and realized what’s been lacking in mine. Here’s a rundown on the tools and resources I use, and I hope you find these helpful, too.

  • It Doesn’t Take a Genius to Start a Blog

    I know I still have a long way to go to be considered a blogging expert, but I have learned a lot in the three years that I’ve run my blog. People blog for several different reasons, and no matter what that is, everyone starts from somewhere: a blog.

    I’d be lying if I tell that blogging is easy, but setting up a blog of your own is. I will share with you today the basics of starting a blog, and hope this will encourage you to finally take the leap.

  • Unleash Your Inner Creativity

    The first thing that draws me into a site or blog other than content are its aesthetic features. In my three years of blogging experience, I have seen how blog designs have evolved from simple to complex. The more complicated the design is, the more interesting it gets. In hindsight, this was probably what inspired me to learn and explore basic HTML/CSS tricks, Photoshop, and other softwares on my own.

  • Why Blog?

    I’ve been blogging the most lately because I’m currently unemployed. I don’t know how I’m going to keep on top of my blogging duties once I start doing my job as a wife (and a mother to our future kid/s), but I remain hopeful because a lot of bloggers I know are doing just that. 

    Even three years into blogging, I still find myself interested in everything related to this kind of passion. Everyday, I discover new blogs that I find as interesting as those considered as season bloggers. Unfortunately, I also find some who fall into a blogging burnout in the early stage of their career, and I think it’s sad a truth.

    Back when I started blogging in 2006 (although SCATTERBRAIN was born in 2012), I didn’t know a lot of people who dedicate their time to write a curated blog post worth reading other than random rants about school. Several years later, I’m still here, but why?
