Davao Homeschooling Family: November 2014

Saturday, November 29, 2014


In English, that means 'Welcome!' :) And in Filipino / Tagalog, it's the popular greeting, 'Mabuhay!' ♥

So here I am, blogging again after a self-imposed hiatus of four years or so. That's also the age of my eldest kid. And with that, you can surmise two things-- one, having kids / parenting and blogging doesn't jive with me; and two, I have more than one kid. But thank god, I 'only' have two! Who will be hereby known as The Eldest and The Youngest. Creative, I know. Haha! Sorry, my creative juices are still dry.

So, blogging hiatus of 4 years. Did my brain cells die? Nahh, coz that didn't mean I stopped writing or engaging my intellectual faculties. Blogging isn't synonymous to writing you know. Anyway, for the latter, Google+ was (and still is) my source since it launched in 2011. I'm quite active there and you can visit me at http://google.com/+MelissaSolito ♥ I have nearly 6500 followers from all over the world (not PH or FB friends, lol) and more than 1.5 million views there. And that's because I post good content!

Which brings us to the next topic: where did I write during my blogging hiatus? Two words: social networks! You already know about Google+, and the other one is Instagram (you know, where the Millenials post their selfies 100x a day, lolol). But yes, IG. A lil back story here. You see I'm the memorykeeper of our family. Since grade school til now, I keep diaries (now called journal / planner) to preserve memories. Then digicams and mobile phone cameras came, and memories were just a snap away to preserve!
