How to Claim Word Press Blog in Alexa

Recently I have moved this blog, from blogger to wordpress platform with a custom domain. I have notice that my alexa rank is still showing the ranking of my old blogger blog. I then figured out that I need to add my new domain on my alexa account and have it claimed in order to track my ranking.

So, here’s a short tutorial on how to claim your wordpress blog in alexa.
Log in to your Alexa account. Under your account, select your sites and then click add.

Then you will be directed to claim your site page. Just add your URL and click claim your site.

Then choose option number 2. This will show alexa that you can upload contents to that URL, for you to be able to claim your site. Copy the meta tag given to your blog’s homepage.

To add your meta tag to your homepage, just log in to your wordpress account. On your dashboard, go to appearance and select editor. Then select Header (header.php) and paste the code and finally hit update file.

Go back to your Alexa account and then click verify my meta tag. You will then be prompted to a message telling you that you have sucessfully claimed your blog.

Just Beautiful Week 2: Sunset Picture

It’s Wednesday and it’s time for Just Beautiful brought to you by Thoughts Online. We are now on its second week and today’s theme is Sunset Pictures. I just love sunset as I mentioned in my first post for this meme.

This sunset picture was taken last year, during a photowalk date with my hubby in Intramuros. We were walking along the walls of intramuros when I saw this young lady in front of us, i was glad to have this composition in mind and quickly press my shutter to capture the scene while the sun is setting down.

What is BCG Vaccine?

Our baby had a BCG vaccine when he was born. I was not actually aware what’s BCG vaccine is. I trust the pediatrician; I know whatever jabs he gives our baby it was necessary and beneficial for his growth. Few weeks after the injection, a small red bump popped out in the injected area and one month later the bump burst. A yellow mucus and a small blood came out which caused me to panic. I called the pediatrician and was relieved after being informed that what happened was normal.
So what is BCG Vaccine?
According to Wikipedia, BCG or Bacillus Calmette-Guerin is a vaccine against tuberculosis that is prepared from a strain of the attenuated live bovine tuberculosis bacillus, Mycobacterium bovis, that has lost its virulence in humans by being specially cultured in an artificial medium for years.

Is BCG Vaccine Effective?
The BCG vaccine is intended to prevent disseminated form of tuberculosis in children. The degree of effectiveness of BCG vaccine varies from 0-80% where it is given right after birth or before reaching 1 year old. However the vaccine cannot prevent contagious tuberculosis disease in adult. The world Health Organization recommends BCG vaccine to be compulsory in countries where tuberculosis is endemic. It also suggests that BCG should be given to all children at birth with standard childhood immunization.

So get your child protected from Tuberculosis by having the BCG Vaccine at birth.

Flashback Twenty Ten

Mommy Rubz of pinaymommyonline is hosting a thanksgiving giveaway. The theme is all about the things that you are thankful for from last year, right now or anything as long as you are thankful for it. So, while I desire for a fruitful twenty eleven for me and my family, there’s a lot of things that I should be thankful for the year that have passed. And I am writing this as entry to mommy rubz thanksgiving giveaway.

To start with, I am thankful with our newly acquired 2 bedroom condominium unit at Bali Oasis. This is our first investment a year after we get married. We haven’t touched its interior yet, but we have successfully rented it out barely.

Early in 2009 just a month after we get married, our company was affected by the global economic crises, and have retrenched half of its employees. Since hubby and I work in the same company in Dubai, we were thankful that we were not fired instead we were both transferred to different branch office, 5 months in Mumbai, and currently in Kuala Lumpur for more than a year now. Being a couple, its a big blessing for us that the company sends us together for work in different part of the world. Living in Kuala Lumpur, gives us a chance to invite our families to visit us and explore Malaysia. I was thankful that we were able to invite my family for a vacation here in Malaysia. It was a family bonding or I would say a reunion, since my father works overseas and get to go home to the Philippines once in every two years, and my only sibling stays in the Philippines and I am here in Kuala Lumpur. It was a great time together, exploring Malaysia and Singapore with my family. We’ve had my inlaws as well and some lovely friends who visited us in Kuala Lumpur.

Before the year ends, I think most of us – regular employees, would expect a salary increase, and i was blessed that Hubby and I got our salary increment mid of 2010.

March 2010, the biggest surprise came; I was finally pregnant with our first baby. And come December 3 2010, our bundle of joy arrived. Hubby and I were very much thankful to God, for everything that we’ve been praying was answered; Safe and healthy pregnancy, a normal and safe delivery and a healthy baby.

I was still in recovery stage when we celebrated our second wedding anniversary last December 9 2010. It was only a simple dinner celebration at home with a piece of chocolate cake from my hubby. Thankful for staying happy and faithful together for two years and still counting.
Praise God! He is truly faithful with His promises to His people. Thank you Lord for all the blessings!

Lastly, I am thankful to all the sponsors who made this give away possible for mommy rubz:

Just Beautiful Week 1

Momsicle is joining a photo meme Just Beautiful hosted by mommy trish’s Thoghts online. My launching entry is the sunset photo that I took early last year when I was just starting to get hook with photography.
