I wanted to do this at the first of the month (be it January or any other month!), but I guess today is as good a day as any to welcome a brand new day to www.yapatoots.com! This is the third revamp of this domain, all within the last nine months and hopefully, this will be more permanent. I started this site as a photo blog but I got bored with it then made it a travel blog and then I got bored again and…left it alone. This 2010, however, I decided to focus on my writing more and allow myself to explore the world wide web even more. With that, I finally got my own web host and moved from the big B to WP. Harhar. I even am starting to explore what a CPanel is and backing up my files.
I have so many people to thank for this big new adventure in my blogging life. For one, there is Mommy Rubz of Pinay Mommy Online and Mom’s Hosting for being brave enough to take me in to her fold, knowing I know nothing about WP, CPanels, hosting and all that hulabaloo everyone talks about when it comes to setting up blogs. My venture in to this would not also have happened if not for Iris of Pinay Ads, Jen and Jeff of Marriage and Beyond, Earth of Earthlingorgeous, Jonel of Let’s Go Sago, and Ed the Musicblogger. Thanks for patiently explaining what SEO means (not that I get it yet!) and how to maximize my online potential. There are so many more of you out there, from the mommy bloggers who have encouraged me to keep going, to friends I’ve met though blogger events and of course people like Az for always keeping me in his guest list for movies and other fun events.
Now that I think of it, 9 months is kinda like birthing a baby, right? This is my new baby’s birthday I suppose!
I am christening this blog “i am woman, hear me rawr! life’s hits and misses as blogged by yapatoots”. I decided not to be so rigid with creating a niche for it. As such, this will be a lifestyle blog encompassing entertainment, fashion, food, events and the ins and outs of my daily life.
I hope my old friends from LP, SOOC and all the other meme’s I played in before continue to join me as I take snapshots of my life and I invite you new friends who drop by and join me in my journey as I chronicle the hits and misses of days passing by.
