here's my yellow ribbon...


It was unintentional that on the day President Cory Aquino passed
away I should find myself defending democracy on the finals night
of VMDC, clad in the exact shade of yellow that Cory was popular
for. But I am thankful nonetheless, to find myself in that position
and to have gone that far. My debaters joke maybe she had a hand
at it, albeit extremely far-fetched, I think the greater value is
in that to some extent, we gave her honor, especially for the gift
of giving us strength to fight for democracy.

May we never forget the lessons of EDSA...
May we never forget why Ninoy had to die...
And may we have the courage to stand up and lead when we are called to,
just like Cory Aquino.

To the bravest president we ever had, thank you and God speed.

Hi,
i feel that your blog has a lot of potential, wat i m suggesting is that, if you agree then i will become a co-author of your blog and i will register your blog with the sponsors, after getting the sponsors approval they will send us ads which can be posted by me in your blog and we earn money for each and every ad being posted. Through out the day we will be receiving the ads, it’s a wonderful opportunity to make money. We can split the earnings between us. As a co-author i will not be able to put new blog posts or remove your old posts, so there is no need for any apprehension.

Hi,
i m glad to hear your reply, this is how we get started. Go to your dashboard and select settings, then select permissions and select add author, then enter my mail id which is karthi.wisteria@gmail.com and select invite. After doing this reply me. Then i will be able to put ad posts in your blog. It is also required that i do a general post along with the ad post in your blog every day. Every month i will transfer the money to your PayPal account; create an account if you don't have one. Then u can transfer that money to your bank account.

hey wisteria,

i already added you as an author. im still in the process of creating a paypal account. is there an alternative method of transferring money tho, like, western union? thanks. looking forward to working with you!

hi,
For the sponsors to approve of your blog, it needs to have atleast twenty posts for this month. So you need to put twenty more posts. If you don't mind i can put twenty posts on general topics and get approval, or you can put twenty more posts yourself and we can get it approved.

i dont know how to transfer through western union,if you have paypal it will be easy to transfer,otherwise just tell your bank name and account no,i will transfer through this method.

And also create a visitors counter in your blog,as u seen in my blog.when u r creating visitors counter it will ask to type number of visitors,then type 2000 visitors.
