Notes on Play:

Play, often described as “ the work of children”… is any voluntary activity engaged in for the purpose of enjoyment… it is not something a child does when he or she has nothing else to do , it is something the child has to do.
-Adele Pillitteri, PhD, RN, PNP
Author of the Maternal and Child Health Nursing

From being an infant, toddler, preschooler and school-age children, play is as an integral part of their life. Even if one reached adulthood, we want to play, we always feel at ease after we play. How can one forget his or her first toy? I will always remember my first “walking doll” given to me by my “lola”. Up to this time I would always recall how I played with it, how I used to change her dresses, combed her curly hair etc.

BK BURGER KING….. Beefy Knockout

We love hamburgers easy and quick to assemble, they are meals to eat out of hand. BURGER KING’s Hamburgers everyday classics are a beefy knockout; they are easy on the budget and these will keep you visiting BURGER KING Branches.

The basic ingredients of BURGER KING hamburgers from freshly toasted sesame seed bun bread , American cheese spread and fire grilled beef quality compliment its flavor. A burger that’s sure to excite your taste buds.

Take your pick from whooper’s , hamburgers, chicken and fish dishes and sides and desserts. It can cater to the whole family from “apo” to “lola” and “lolo” with variety of food choices.

It has also value added services to its customers such as free wireless internet connection, LCD screens which show music videos of current hits, cell phone charging stations offering free charging its patrons for iPOD, PSP etc .

Blogging has become part of my life these days. I blog whenever I have the time and of course it serve as form of therapy for any physical or emotional upheavals I may have for the day. Reading the blogs of my kids keep me track on what’s on their thoughts and what’s keeping them busy.

As I browse and scan the book, Blogging From Home, I find it very practical and useful for the things I need to know about blogging, since I’m barely new in this endeavor.

It’s readable, simple English , big font ( I’m in my forties, I need my reading glasses !) and presented in an outline form with sample charts and web pages. Just like how a teacher teaches inside the classroom with the proper visual aids, I love the book for being so instructional!

I have to take note about the portion on Blog ethics and the conclusion part, blogging Ahead. If blogging is now a serious activity, it might as well really practice ethics, aside from plagiarism and copyright , there’s respect of individual’s right and always tell the truth. There should be balance between the benefit and the harm done by blogging.

Blogging did influence my life (see my previous post).

Thank you Janette for publishing a book about blogging. Thank you for the support you have been extending to bloggers.
