Why working from home is the best decision I made this year?

Do you believe that many of the best decisions in life are unplanned? I do. To name a few, here they are:

-3 years ago, I left the corporate job I loved and enjoyed for more than 4 years. It took me to different places and countries. Had the chance to meet highly respected people. Of course, I feared letting go of the job that gave me great opportunities over the years, but it somehow gave me the time to focus on one more important thing, and that was…

-Finding and buying a new home that we can call it our own. I had a heavy heart leaving my hometown of more than 3 decades but when my husband gave me the go signal, that was it! We became Subic residents in no time.

Mix & Match

Changing the look of any room can be quickly done by adding contrasting colors to the walls. The experts also say that you can make a room look smaller by painting one wall a darker shade, or you can install a huge mirror on the wall to make the room bigger. Indeed a great idea but choosing the right colors could also be an issue if you are not really good in it, not to forget the cost of mixed paint colors. So to make my home change its look once in a while, I do the mixing & matching of my decors.

I would normally pick a color contrasting to the main subject in that particular spot of the house and match it with a similar or lighter color. Photo above is my sofa with its dark geometric pattern cover, in grey and black. The sofa cover itself has its matching throw pillow cases but I wanted to give it a different touch this time so I picked a combination of grey and light blue throw pillow case, just because the owl pillow had a blue color on it. I love the warmth feeling it gives my eyes each time I look at it.

How To Fix Leaks In Your Home Gutter

If your gutter system has leaks in it, your first inclination may be to get out the ladder and try to repair it yourself, but that may be the wrong decision to make. There are numerous do-it-yourself (DIY) projects a property owner could focus on but repairing/replacing gutters is not something you should attempt, especially given the risk associated with working from heights. Also, the gutter system is installed using a very specific set of measurements to ensure proper drainage and if these measurements are not followed, then there is a risk that the water won’t drain properly leading to significant water damage.

Determining The Extent of Your Gutter Problems

In order to determine the extent of your gutter problems you will need to need to hire a firm that specializes in gutter repairs. When you have identified those firms you can have them take a look at your gutters. Based on that assessment the determination can be made to see whether repairs to worn and torn gutter components makes better economic sense than a total replacement.

Basic Steps on How to Start a Blog

 

Starting a blog is easy but getting it established can take a while. I officially started blogging on its own domain in 2007 but I had been on free-hosted blog for quite a while before I finally decided to get it hosted on its own domain, and monetized it. Here are the basic steps on how you can start:

(1) Choose your preferred blog platform. Choosing a platform where you want to build your blog is of course the first thing you need to do and have decided on. I assume you’ve already heard about WordPress and Blogger. The platform I am using is WordPress and I would say it is the most well-known platform worldwide.

It is user-friendly. You don’t have to be an expert to get it working especially that everything can now be searched online. There are tons of free themes available, and almost all the plugins that you need are also free to use.

(2) Decide whether you want it self-hosted or free-hosted. In a free-hosted blog, you won’t be able to get your preferred domain name e.g. www.mitchteryosa.com. However, in some cases, you can get www.mitchteryosa.wordpress.com for example, if it’s still available. Still, it doesn’t look personalized at all and if you plan to get it monetized, chances are very low as most of the advertisers prefer a self-hosted blog. There were cases that blog sites were suspended due to some issues, and simply because you do not own your blog. You can check www.godaddy.com for the domain names and hosting, or search on Google some other hosts that charge cheaper.
