why i blog

Of course, somehow, somewhere, you’ve got to start with something. You don’t simply do one thing when it pops up your mind one day. You must have reasons and intellect behind everything we do, hence, we are called homo-sapiens, right?  
Here is a low-down of the reasons why I blog:
·         What jumpstarted this blogging adventure was my son’s upcoming first birthday celebration last august, 2010. I was so inspired to search for party suppliers, birthday venues, birthday themes, giveaway ideas and suggestion (and yes, even a do-it-yourself life-sized standee for my son) online that a light bulb turned on in my head one day giving me the idea to document my adventure (note: I didn’t get around to posting every bit of my baby’s birthday preparation/celebration, but pledged to do so before his 2nd birthday comes!)
·         By nature I am a very talkative person, highly opinionated and am very much willing to give my two-cents worth (even if it is not solicited, sometimes!) and I just realized blogging, much like personal journaling (which I used to do and can’t find time to do since I became a mum), is such a good outlet and venue for all the pent-up ideas, emotions and what-not.
·         Motherhood is such a profound, life changing experience (as my subtitle suggests) and blogging is but one of the many ways to help me document, unravel, and enjoy it to the fullest.
·         Of late, I discovered you can also win freebies and giveaways by blogging. I liked it instantly, won a couple last year and joined a number of contests from then on.  So here I am once again, in quest to win another blog giveaway!
·         Motherhood, as you probably know first-hand, is a very challenging, patience-testing, thought-and-tear provoking task  and it is simply not an easy job to do, so to take a breather, have some me-time, I blog!

pulp up your life!

I just drank a bottle of Minute Maid Pulpy. They say it’s got ‘no preservatives added’. Aw, c’mon…It’s bottled juice. Is that even possible? So I thought maybe… i could check the label to be sure and drink more so i can actually taste its all-natural goodness..and what do you know, it really has no preservatives and tastes just like the freshly squeezed one!!
I didn’t believe it the first time I heard it’s got no preservatives added.  So I read the ingredients (even the fine print) and everything checked out! It really has NO PRESERVATIVES ADDED!  That means it doesn’t have ingredients that may turn out to be allergens, or worse…carcinogens!  Whew! Now that’s healthy goodness that tastes so good, I… can drink it everyday, hmm..that is one healthy resolution to start off 2011!
So okay, it’s got no preservatives added. That’s really good, right?  Not just because it doesn’t have those icky, harmful ingredients, but it also means…it is very safe, even my 16-month old baby, jared, can also drink it, great!
So far anyone who still has a hard time believing that Minute Maid has got no preservatives added – meaning it’s THAT natural, it’s almost like it’s plucked straight from the tree, it’s just as Mother Nature wanted your orange juice to be, it’s got nothing but the good stuff yes, none of those potentially toxic stuff that can harm your brain, kidneys, heart; cause tumors aargh- the list of preservatives’ bad effects just go on!!! Anyway, just to prove a point on just how good Minute Maid Pulpy is ’cause it’s got NO PRESERVATIVES ADDED, I’m gonna start a healthy habit of drinking a glass each day.
Feels good to know about the real pulpy deal, right? C’mon show me a smile on the comment box, and you might win yourself a Really Pulpy Deal! (That’s a chance to win a Minute Maid gift pack simply by commenting. Sweet! C’mon you just might be picked as the lucky ‘commentor’!)
