Blogspot vs Wordpress

After attending the Visayas Blogging Summit 2011 yesterday, November 26, 2011, I decided to create a WordPress account. Virtual CEO of Live2Sell Group, Chris Ducker, advised us that Blogspot is slowly dying and we (Blogspot users) need to migrate from Blogspot to WordPress.

So here I am, trying to get to know WordPress, making my first attempt of my exploration of the site. And since I was convinced of my new-found co-blogger friend, Red (yes, we met during the summit) of Cook My Garden, to join the Cebu Bloggers Society, I decided to give it a shot and try to update my blog as much as possible.

And oh, aside from that I also need to find my niche. I haven’t decided yet what I really like since I’m interested in a lot of things like travel, food, books and new stuff that I want to share with people. Lucky Red, he already decided that he loves food and cooking. Now, he’s set on writing not only about food and recipes but also about people who create delicious mouth-watering edible things.

That makes me wonder what I really want. And what I have to do to make it unique.

Jonas Borces’s Big Move in Moevenpick Resort & Spa Cebu

Making Room for Beauty

Passion and determination are important points to motivate people. But for Cebu’s celebrated hair and make-up artist, Jonas Borces, his greatest motivator is fear of running low on cash on rainy days. Driven with this motivation, he started his beauty business by hoping from pageants to pageants, offering his make-up services to the beauty contestants to earn income and support his family.

Because of his meticulous way in handling his clientele, Jonas Borces is now a household name in Cebu, making him popular by local Cebuano celebrities and models. To date, he owns his own studio and is widely known for his hair straightening treatments, fashion editorial make-up, print and TV make-up, bridal make-up, special events and glamour make-up.
