New Payment Policy of Blogsvertise

Blogsvertise is one of the  many websites where I make money from blogging.  I've been a member of this site since 2008 and up to now I still receive tasks from them. Although it is not that abundant compared to the past years but at least I get to receive 1-5 tasks in a month. It still helps to pay the bills.

Blogsvertise, Payment Policy of Blogsvertise
Talking about payment, they have actually implemented a new policy. If you are not yet aware of this and already upset why you haven't received that long overdue payment on your account then read on...

According to their Facebook page:
Blogger payments will now be generated when your Payment Management reaches $50+. Your total payments due must reach a total of at least $50 in order to receive payment. This policy has been implemented in order to cut additional PayPal fees. Many companies similar to ours have a minimum of $100 before bloggers can receive payment. We wanted to be fair to our loyal members and did not want to make bloggers wait to reach that amount.
This new payment policy can also be found in the Help Page when you are logged in to your Blogvertise account. 

So what do you think? Is this fair enough?

Artista Academy Winners: Vin Abrenica as Best Actor and Sophie Albertas Best Actress



Congratulations to Vin Abrenica for winning as Best Actor and Sophie Albert as Best Actress for the recently concluded Artista Academy competition. They automatically become "Close-up" Ambassadors and each won 10 million pesos. WOW! The biggest prize a winner has received in a TV reality show so far here in the Philippines.

Just judging from the earlier performances, they are not actually my bets. Akihiro Blanco's acting and dancing is better compared to Vin Abrenica. The same thing applies to Shaira Mae over Sophie Albert. But since the criteria for juding is 40% accumulated average for the past weeks; 40% grades for performance tonight; 20% text votes I can't say that they will win. But regarding love teams, I prefer the Vin Abrenica and Sophie Albert or "SOVIN" love team. They look good together and may "KILIG FACTOR" talaga. :)

Survivor Philippines Season 25 Episode 6: "Down and Dirty"



I've finally caught up watching Survivor Philippines Season 25. Yay! The past five episodes were not really that good. Scenes were more focused on Tribe Matsing since they never win in any immunity challenges, resulting to a tribal absorption to Denise Stapley and Malcolm Freberg.

But on its Episode 6: Down and Dirty - the show gets more interesting because the two tribes (Tandang and Kalabaw) gave up the reward challenge which is to push a large wood ball across a mud field to their goal (see photo above) for a deal. Wow! I think it's another first time in Survivor history. And guess what, the deal is to give up all the remaining rice the Kalabaw tribe has in exchange for winning the one time feast reward. A proposal made by Jonathan Penner who promised to catch fish for his tribe mates.

Fair Use Policy of Globe

Fair Use Policy of Globe, 800mb limit
800 MB Limit Reached

I've mentioned in my recent blog post that I have chosen Globe Tattoo as my internet service provider because its speed is faster compared to PLDT net at Home. But later on, I found out that there are actually limit to our surfing, download, upload and others. This is because of their Fair Use Policy.

So even if you are registered for an unlisurf for a day, a week or a month - we have a limit of 800mb data subscription per day. Shocks! I really thought that I could make the most of their faster speed but sad to say, I will just have to use this connection for surfing, answering emails and not for downloading my favorite movies and tv series. I still can't terminate my PLDT Net at home subscription unless there is  a wired connection available now in our area. :(
