I actually didn’t know what those sub-links under the main site link are called, but I regularly see them for popular blogs, and I’ve always wondered how to get them.

They’re sitelinks – how did I even get them? Does that mean Google loves me?

I’m Peddling My Book at the 36th Manila International Book Fair

Last year, I decided to write a book that explains the basics of investments in a simple manner. I initially meant to just give out the books as Christmas gifts to my co-doctors and friends. Due to the good response of those who received the book, I decided to sell the book.

My book is available in Amazon here and via Central Books bookstores in the Philippines.

Central Books also invited me to appear in the 36th Manila International Book Fair. A chance to hawk my book in person!

To a Sabbatical and Back

I disappeared from my blog for about two months. Before I left, I was posting almost everyday – which got less frequent as I was about to disappear. I got burned out with blogging. How did it come to that point?

Thank You: Readers from 100 Countries Have Visited my Blog

After starting my blog last month, I didn’t really expect that people will read what I write. I didn’t even bother to actively promote my blog in social media because I didn’t want to get my hopes up.

A few days ago, after 40 days of blogging, my geoview stats in WordPress showed this:

 

Number of Countries in my Blog's Geoviews
100 countries and counting – I hope.  If you try to count them, they won’t add up to 100 since countries like Singapore and Monaco are too small to be seen in that map. Image from wordpress

 

Readers from 100 countries have visited my blog. Thank you. Continue reading Thank You: Readers from 100 Countries Have Visited my Blog
