4-23-tips

Have you ever wanted to start a blog, but have no idea where to start? It’s more simple than you think! Grab your notebook (or your smart phones if you’re not the old school type), take note of these tips, and start brainstorming ideas to start your very own blog!

1. Find your blogging niche.

Answer this simple question: What do you love the most? If you love fashion, then get up, raid your own wardrobe, take those OOTDs and start sharing. If you’re into food and cooking, the world needs your culinary prowess! Love travelling? Take that wanderlust to good use and let us see the world through your eyes. Think about what you’re most passionate about and start writing about it. Whether you’re into fitness, beauty, technology, or you’re just someone who wants to share your own life, figure out your niche in the blogosphere and start signing up on that blogging platform!

2. Write original, relevant and useful content.

Part of writing what you love is creating content that will not only gain you readers, but will make your readers stay. Your content is the core of your blog, so make sure that you write things that are good, creative and beneficial. And of course, write something that YOU actually wrote!

3. Include social media buttons.

Everybody knows that everyone is in social media. When you include social media buttons on your blog, you’re giving your readers the chance to share your posts. Not only will your social circle get to read your blog posts, your readers’ social circles get to also read them. Who knows? Someone might bump into your blog post and get exactly what they were searching for!

4. Respond to your readers.

No one likes a snob. Getting comments on your blog posts means that your readers are willing to connect and engage. Why would you not respond to someone who read your post? That post you stayed up all night writing! Show your appreciation and reply to those comments. It’s just a few taps in your keyboard anyway, how hard could it be?

5. Never lose your personality when you write.

Don’t be a cookie cutter blogger. Be yourself. Inject your personality in your writing, and you’re sure to build a connection with your readers. There are so many blogs out there and you have to make sure to let your personality shine through to be able to stand out.

Always remember that no one gets to the top without starting from the bottom. If you’re frustrated now that your startup blog is not getting the attention you want, just keep writing about what you love, practice practice practice, and you’ll get there eventually!

See you around the blogosphere,

As a kid, my parents were very strict when it comes to my dental hygiene. They always made sure that I brushed my teeth three times a day, flossed, rinsed my mouth with mouthwash, and had my regular visit to the dentist. I didn’t understand why I had to go through all these tedious steps. As I got older and busier, my mouth care routine wasn’t as strict as when I was a kid. My parents weren’t also there to remind me every time. I stuck to a tooth brush-only routine, even though my dentist ALWAYS advised me to floss and use mouthwash. And of course, it only left me with more trips to the dentist!

Like most Filipinos, I thought that flossing, especially rinsing with mouthwash, was a luxury, and wasn’t really important. I thought that brushing can already clean my teeth, mouth and gums. I thought it was enough. I didn’t know that every time I brushed my teeth, I only got rid of dirt in my teeth but not biofilm. Biofilm doesn’t sound that dangerous, but actually it is something we should be cautious of. It is a sticky layer where all our mouth’s bacteria thrives. When not removed, it can cause so much mouth problems like plaque and gum problems! So how do we get rid of this pesky problem? There’s only really one simple solution. A simple act I wasn’t able to do for so long. The thing my parents always told me to do. Rinse my mouth with the best mouthwash. The only way to remove biofilm is by rinsing with Listerine. With its unique formula and four essential oils, it is scientifically proven and designed to break and remove biofilm, and virtually cleans 100% of the mouth!

I know it’s difficult for us, especially Filipinos to add one more step to our mouth care routine. That’s why Listerine launched the Step It Up with LISTERINE Campaign. With it, more and more people are being encouraged to step up their mouth care habit with one more step — a simple rinse.

In line with this campaign, Step Up Your Food Trip with LISTERINE was held last March 27 and 28, 2015 at Eastwood Mall Open Park. It’s not just enough to have a healthy mouth. We also have to make sure that what comes in our mouth is healthy as well. Another struggle of Filipinos I think, is to have a healthy lifestyle. This event showed me that eating healthy food and living a healthy lifestyle is doable.

It was hosted by TV host, food blogger and lifestyle columnist, the lovely Sam Oh.

The event was graced by Chef Carlo Miguel of 71 Gramercy, Black Olive, Draft and Publiko, famous for his drastic hundred-pound weight loss.

The event also featured demos and tips from healthy food shops and brands like Kitchen Manila, Lunch Box Diet, The Sandwich Guy, The Mango Farm, Juice Hut Manila, Fitness Gourmet, Dole Philippines, Robinson’s Supermarket, The Daily Jusa, Fruitas, Gandiva Cafe and Archery Range, Dr. Tam’s Vegan House, Arla Food, Yummy Diet and more.

They were able to share that with just one twist (whether it be an ingredient or cooking style), we could easily change our diet to not just good, but great! Not just tasty and delicious, but also healthy!

There were so many healthy dishes and juices that were prepared at the ‘Step It Up’, ‘Step It Up and Twist’, and ‘Step It Up and Squeeze’ booths.

Stepping up to a more clean and healthy lifestyle isn’t complete without rinsing your mouth. Listerine provided rinsing stations where people can visit after each activity that showed how easy it is to include one easy and important step to achieve a healthier mouth.

Not only did Listerine inspire me to step up to eating healthy, it also inspired to me to step up my oral health. With Listerine Total Care’s 6 benefits in 1, it is the most complete mouthwash for me. With tons of benefits like: fresher breath from the first rinse, whiter teeth on the 7th day, healthier gums on the 14th day, and stronger teeth on the 21st day, what more can I ask for in a mouthwash? It also reduces plaque, kills germs, and prevents tartar to keep teeth naturally white. And of course, removes that nasty layer of biofilm!

So remember that brushing is not enough since it cannot remove biofilm that will eventually destroy the teeth and mouth! Let’s leave our old habits behind and step up to a healthier one. It’s simple and easy with LISTERINE Total Care.

To all bloggers,

As we constantly cooperate with government agencies and institutions in order to provide better reporting and transparency with our network of bloggers, we have been advised by the Bureau of Internal Revenue to increase the withholding tax from the current 2% to 15%.

In this respect, we will apply the required 15% withholding tax on all payouts to bloggers in our network effective immediately.

In return, we will also provide for a Certificate of Creditable Tax Withheld at Source (BIR Form 2307) to reflect the amount withheld and remitted to the revenue bureau.

You may then use the Form 2307 as proof of partial tax payments when you file your returns.

Form 2307

Despite all these being performed, professional bloggers should be reminded that they are still required to file an income tax return to report income and to pay the difference between the tax withheld and the tax due on the income.

Should you have any questions, bloggers are encouraged to contact use via our help desk so we can assist them in this compliance.

For your guidance.

Best,

The Nuffnang Philippines Team
