I have been keeping a journal since I was in high school. When I reached college, I wrote more or let me say, I made more that in later years. I had a hard time which place should I stock those piles. I don’t like the thought anyone going through my journals while I am still alive.

Someone asked me, what’s in your journal? I told her, oh well, they are personal experiences, mostly what my day was or a weekend like or my aspirations. I also recorded some love moments and even the fights and confused moments. I think keeping journal is a healthy habit. It may look weird for some because it makes an introvert person more introvert, but to me, it’s kind of healthy because if there is no one near you, or if one is not comfortable sharing her deepest thoughts, she has the journal to pour out her feelings.

Keeping a journal is not just for girls. There are men who kept one, too. Even great men have journals. Examples of men who kept a journal or diary are Ralph Waldo Emerson, Kurt Cobain, Ronald Reagan, and Captain Cook. These are just some of them. There are or course a lot of women who can add up to this list.

So, if you want to end up like any of them, keep writing! It does not matter if it’s only for your eyes, the important thing is you write about the moments of your life. :-)

Whew! It's been a long time that I didn't check my links in my blogs. Not until days ago, Mr/Ms. G sent me notice that I got penalized, of what? --- that's a big question but he/she gave me hints. So I have to start from there.

I just found out that I got a lot of 404 errors, bad links or broken links. It's time to check those. I don't know the real reason what happened but what sure thing, is that I got such. So now, with the help of Online Broken Link Checker, I got the specific URL of my blog to where I can find it and the specific URL of the outgoing link I got. So there goes my so much time to consume regarding this matter.

I just can only wish that the owner of those link(s) is brave enough to inform everyone on their community or so. Ooh well, we do not know what really happen, again, it's just a wish or should I say "hope" --- hoping for a betterment. But then, as I said, we don't really know, maybe there's a good reason why, or maybe not -- and that I don't know, only God knows. The important is "honest to goodness" point of view, isn't it? On the other hand, if you think I missed your link, please let me know --- but please know that I recheck and check it, maybe I just miss, if so, I am so sorry. Oops by the way, don't be surprised that for long time I am here to blog hop, doing my rounds, etcetera to which I so missed doing. Don't get mad that you can see me on your Fedjit, okay? Ha! I'm sure you love visitors, aren't you (or maybe not)? Wink. ;-)

Thanks for reading guys, just a random thought of this day which would consume a lot of my time, but I think this is part of online gig. Have a great day everyone! All the best! ~hugs&kisses~

Because of my busy days, I still did not have time to change some of my old templates here! It is hard to find one that really fits on my taste. Okay, I have to tell you that I really like this lay-out of mine and I even let someone put this layout on and I then accentuated it myself like the color, arrangements and stuffs. And I have no plan of changing this main layout but just the arrangements and some minor ones. Then, I found a lot of new templates and downloaded it to my computer and after all it did not work. So I decided to have a pause in searching. Err!
We know that one way of changing blog's layout is to let it customized and find someone who can design but, you have to get ready your pocket for that, yes, it cost too much. I think one template cost 30USD or more, it depends on the design that you like. The only good thing to have customized template is the originality and I admit that working online with your good looking blog helps the motivation. I already had experienced it before. So just hope to find time (okay, maybe budget too) and can do the customization on my other sites. Well, if you guys know someone that offers cheap services please do leave comments here, that will help me when I would consider other person to do it at time. I will surely appreciate it. Thanks in advance. :-))

The way to be known and heard has definitely changed. About a decade or so ago, to promote your organization, product or services would mean being found in a printed newspaper or magazine or being seen on TV. And then there is promotion by word of mouth; what impacts a person gets talked about.

Today, one of the key ways to be known, to be visible to the world is by establishing one’s presence online journey. And so companies and organizations (and even a number of personalities, from political to religious leaders) have recognized this reality and have sought to be known, accessible online. But while they have allowed themselves be seen and even heard online, they often forget that they need to be easily searched so that they will indeed be as known and as accessible to others as they hoped to be. The good news is that they can avail of guaranteed seo services. With just the right seo services, one's company, product or services can be known and shared to the world, can indeed be easily found online. One doesn't need to remain unknown, unsearchable in this new day and age of information, with just the right seo services one can get searched and yes, get known.

When I started blogging I never thought that I will be earning something from it but when the cash is flowing, it keeps rolling and I am hoping that it won’t end. It's a sweet journey, but mind you, it never came that easy and I almost wanted to hire some seo consulting services just to jump start it. The only thing that keeps me from holding on is because I cannot afford it and besides I don’t know either if it works. Although many of my friends are telling me that it’s going to help my blog easily be seen here in the Internet.

But before I go on using it in my blog I tried my own research of how helpful seo consulting services really are. And I would say that the Internet has vast information that everyone can take advantage of and all you have to do is find the right resources. While in my quest to boost the visibility of my blog, I do learn a few tidbits though on how to optimize and increase the reputation of my blog in the World Wide Web. And I would say using seo consulting services would help companies who are serious in this kind of business. It surely will push your website up in the ladder.

Blogging has been a great avenue for me to express my inner thoughts and feelings especially when I don’t have anybody around to listen to my grievances, frustrations, joys, happiness and aspirations. In here, I am in total control. With blogging, I have also the privilege to inspire other people with the articles I write and with the experiences I share. Not only that, blogging has also given me the opportunity to earn.

I started with submitting my blogs to different sites that need writers. As a starter I did not get many projects but as time passed, when my blogs started to earn a fair share of audience that’s how I realized that there is money in blogging.

Freelance Clerks for one is a site that gives a blogger or any writer like me an opportunity to earn through writing. Hire Freelancers, is a place where employers can go to for possible writing job tasks journey. In my perspective as a writer, its best feature is the number of projects to choose from that actually offer an attractive amount of compensation for every task completed. If you are a writer like me, all you should do is to click on the Project button then bid for a task that you think you can write about, then wait for its confirmation whether you get the job or not.

And before you realized it, you are already earning for something that you love to do which is writing.

Being a webmaster is not an easy job journey especially if one is maintaining multiple websites. A webmaster’s responsibilities include designing the website, making sure that the web servers, hardware and software are running properly, generating unique content for the website, and even answering queries from the visitors of the website. Most business websites hire the services of a professional webmaster while in cases of personal websites such as blogs; they are mostly handled by the bloggers themselves. Unlike professional webmasters who have technical knowledge required to run and manage a website, private individuals who handle their personal website need to some assistance from time to time. It’s a great thing that there is a website where Webmaster Answers are provided by experts in fields such as SEO, link building, bandwidth requirements, networking, maximizing the use of social media, HTML and other similar subjects. Someone like me who manages her own website can benefit greatly from it. I can use the forum to ask for assistance in issues that relates to proper website management. Experts from different fields will be sharing their knowledge by providing precise instructions as well as helpful and practical articles that everyone can benefit from.

I recall when I started to build this site Cacai’s Journey. This supposedly a journey of me and my DH, Cacai and Nad. Okay, I did not expect that this will lead me writing of my journey in life. This was just a matter of hobby and getting fun online with some other friends along and as I said, it was unintended for me alone. Then, an experimental page mold me much in sending information to my readers and followers online. Sorry to say, but I have limitations, of course. I don’t much exposed on what my family and my journey is but most of them has been written here. I am just a simple woman who just really like to share little things and some big things, of my daily journey here.

Now that I have my angel with me then I am not totally free to have time sitting in front of computer. I give much attention to my dear one and of course to our provider which is my hubby dear. Well, I am just thankful that I have this site specifically for my journey in life.

Thank you for being part of this journey. ~hugs&kisses~

Imagine efficiency that’s cost-effective. Imagine technology that’s easy on the pocket. We may not be living in a perfect world, but yes, there’s technology that isn’t expensive, and there sure is efficiency that’s economically viable. To make my point clear, take a look at these three online services:

1. PickyDomains
Nowadays, the .com and .net addresses are so saturated that finding the perfect domain for a new website can be quite challenging. That’s due to the fact that millions and millions of top-level domains (TLDs) have been registered to date, and more and more are being registered with the ICANN everyday. If you’re new to the industry and don’t have much financial leverage to speak of, a branding agency to help you come up with the perfect domain may not be an option. These agencies charge thousands for their services.

PickyDomains is a naming platform that has been in business since 2007. PickyDomains makes full use of the power of crowd-sourcing to come up with names, domains and slogans that are catchy, easy-to-remember, relevant and unique. With a diverse and strong base of over 50,000 contributors from across the globe, imagine the number of suggestions you’re likely to get once you avail of the service. To do so, simply become a client by registering with the site, pay $50 if it’s a name or domain you need (or $75 for a slogan) and specify your naming guidelines. If none of the suggestions you receive is to your liking, you get a refund. If that isn’t risk-free, I honestly don’t know what else is.

2. JetRadar

After all is said and done, one thing remains: Air travel is still the fastest and safest way to go from point A to point B. With the arrival of low-cost airlines and online ticketing sites, air travel has become a lot cheaper as well. Unfortunately, the competition among airlines has become so stiff that some have been forced to leave the business for good, forcing those that have managed to stay afloat to confine their best promotional offers into their own corporate websites, contrary to the old practice of pitching them to comparison sites. As a consequence, the would-be traveler would have to skim through multiple sites to find the deal that suits his budget and travel requirements best.

JetRadar is a comprehensive search engine that methodically searches through more than 700 airlines and hundreds of flight sites for the best and cheapest airfare deals available, and makes the data easily accessible by the searching public in a single web address. This, in effect, allows a customer to save up on time and energy usually expended to find the airfare deal that suits him best.

3. Bitrix24

Technology is everyday an emerging trend. Among the technologically advanced tools being implemented by companies today are CRMs and intranets, all for the purpose of ensuring productivity and manpower empowerment in the workplace. These tools, however, may not be well suited for financially-challenged business owners.

Thank goodness for Bitrix24, a cloud-based corporate intranet application that’s free for small businesses with a maximum of 12 people. Bitrix24 aggregates several disparate work applications into a single

It is the time of the year to commemorate lent season. I don't know if other religion celebration Holy Week as much as Roman Catholic's culture.

Yes, today is "Holy Thursday" in United States of A. The day of commemorating Christ Jesus' journey as He was punished for saving human's first sin through Adam and Eve. Tomorrow is the day, "Holy Friday", commemorating the day He died in the cross whilst the day after tomorrow is the second day to which it is called as "Black Saturday". Then on the third day He rose again, that is why it is called "Easter Sunday", the beginning of Easter Season in the Church Calendar. I knew this as I went to Catholic School during my Junior and Senior years in high school as well as I graduated a 4-years course in a Catholic School as well. And we were taught about it, as much as we experienced the commemoration every year.

Since I married to a non-Catholic person (which I did not regret), I cannot really feel the moment and essence of Holy Week here in USA though I still remember what we were doing wayback. And so this post is my way of remembering and commemorating such!

I wish to have a lot of time. Too many things to do, too many thoughts to blog but too little time! I wish I can buy time. Ooh well, but not this time.

Does, it rhyme? Or too many "time" ? Ha!

Alright, just wishing everybody a happy and sweet dreams. Time check: 2:06 a.m. and here I am just going to start my bedtime. Not all the time but most of it. Ooh well. Am not complaining much though, haha! Just kidding. Though I wish to complain but it's not reasonable. Just so you know it's not easy but again, it's not worth to complain. It just not make sense. :-)

And so the journey of being off to "la la land" just begin. Have a great one in yours there! --- Seems like some of you are in the middle of being in a sweet dreams. Others, may have bad dreams. All in all, it's just a part of sleeping journey. :-) It's just great having the first one, a sweet dream, that is. Smile.

This is some pieces of info of this blog.

If you can see my URL, it is cacainadjourney(dot)com . And why? You might be wondering why, or maybe not. Alright, this is supposed to be my journey with my husband blog. That nad isn't a shuffle of and but a nickname of him. Now, you might say why the blog's name is just Cacai (the root name you can see). That is because it turned out to be. Meaning, it supposed-to-be but it did not happen, so it turned out into just my random journey to which it isn't far from such, don't you think? Ha! You're right!

And now you know. :-)  By the way, I have this blog starting more than two years ago (that was sometime of January 2009) but I can see nobody knows why I have that URL root name. Ha! They (or maybe you're one of them) thought it's just my journey and it was intended as it is. Smile. :-) Have a great day everyone!

 I would like to remind everyone that this blogs means a lot to me. This is where my journey's begin more than two years ago, though, it's just random thoughts written on here but it's worth it especially when you read along from beginning up to current . If I recall the day that I started to think and plan to start blogging , it was unforgetable one. I read a lot of facts and reviews about blogging before but then I don't have that strong spirit to start at once. Until one day that I decided to start and made this blog which is entitled Cacai's Steps and Journey originally and then a good friend of mine suggested to eliminate the "s" word after Cacai, that is why on my header the "s" word on it is kinda different from other letters,as you can see. Just like other blogger, we all say that blogging makes fun (and torture too.. ahemmm.. LOL! yes, torture if you can't blog because something's happen with the PC or the Internet!),  YES I agree!

I start blogging two years ago and nine months ago. Blogging for me is an outlet of my thoughts, sharing my experience and tips from what I had. It is not as just for fun, making friends and surfing online but as a sort of. I love reading blogs as much as I admire professional writers who can write long interesting articles, books and alike. I admire people who are creative in their own way of writings. Being a blogger doesn't mean for money. But of course I want to earn a bit from my blogging if it paid every single minute the time that I sitted in front of my pc making post and reviews. Yep, why not if I can do that way with the takes of life, thoughts, experiences I have/had?

Bloggers are some sort of media for news, events and other stuff online. Mostly I found lot of interesting stuffs while visiting bloggers page. Bloggers use to express their feelings and giving their best to get readers. But for me on the other side , I just write simply and feel sorry that I don't have much time to sit and make more posts periodically (but I am trying more to do such). Specially now that I am a new mom, so I want to enjoy every minute of my busy days to my dearest baby.

Well, no matter what I am still keeping my page updated and saying hello to my co-bloggers, family, friends and anyone interested of this blog, around.

Oh my goodness! Time flies too fast. I cannot hold on but go with the flow no matter what. So far, I am thankful to GOD for all his provision to the life I am going through! He is the light of my life and he knows where I am now. Anyway, I am beating up my deadlines, the mommy duties, as a homemaker and my online works (yes blogging! -- it makes my thoughts flow and feel good)! It is hard to handle these but on the other hand it is fun. I am like a robot sometimes, I cannot imagine how I finished things in just a minute.

The magic of being a woman strikes me when I am beating up my chores. For you guys who dropped and followed my post here thanks so much for your support! One day I will return my visit to your sites. Hope you all understand! For the meantime, I need to run again but I am trying to finish my online task first! Huh!

By the way, I am thankful for the continuous blessings that GOD showered to our family. But for today, I will say bye people see you again after an hour. Oops! Who said I am busy? Yep! But then... Well, well, well... have a great day everyone! Thanks again!

Are you still active in dropping EC? Last year I am addicted to that. I can say I do it regularly. In my three(3) blogs, they are all active and enrolled at entrecard. My day is not compete without any drops. I used to have 50 or more drops in each on my blogs every day . Sounds so perfect and it helps a lot on my blog traffic. I can see that dropping EC might not be super solid traffic respond but it really helps.

I am just sad sometimes bloggers don't respond my drops. LOL! That is normal I guess. I don't respond sometimes too, specially if I am getting busy over the day! So this is just a vice-versa. Still thankful for those who drop back with me. So I am planning to get back dropping next month if possible but will see.

Anyway, I wish you guys a happy evening and enjoy your day with your love ones. I will go out and buy some milk and eggs. I will make some dessert. Yummy! By the way, I would like to thank to one of my dear blogger friend who always share some tips in blogging and more tips of being a mom. So thank to you my dear. You are an angel, you know who you are!
