Blog Review # 4 - Walk Through Money Online Journal

Blog's Name   -      Walk Through Money Online Journal
Writer  -                   Ester "Tey"
Blog URL-     
Other Blogs by The Writer

Personal Profile - (Quoted verbatim from her short  personal profile) - Hi, I'm "Ester" from Toronto, Canada. Safety and quality assurance associate in an American company.  Working at night, blogger during the day.  A busy working mom who always try to find time to blog.  Learning more on how to make money online.

The Blog's Technical Features -   This blog is a practical one, a rare hybrid of a practical blog and a commercial one.  Only Tey can do that.  Template is ordinary.  Layout focuses more on practicality rather than aesthetics.  She's definitely a practical commercial blogger.

Ratings for Technical Features -  8

Contents -  Contents are just about perfect for a practical commercial post.  It's neither too short nor too long.  She zeroes in on the subject matter and tackles only the pertinent information needed.  No going around the bush  or flowery words.  In other words, no frills.  So far, of all the blogs I surveyed, she epitomized the ideal commercial blogger, and I would not be surprised if one of these days she will realize her long cherished dream of working full time on her online blogs at home.  She's on her way to that with her prodigious output of ten (10) quality blogs although the tenth one is absolutely neither here nor there.  I think it is linked to another site with a strong Christian message.  Her blogs are well defined and clearly delineated.  She never post an article or paid post that is out of context with the theme of her blogs.  I am learning so much from this lady dean of practical commercial blogging.

Blog Review # 3 - Happy Family Matters

           Blog's Name  -  Happy Family Matters
           Author -              Angel Cuala
           Pen Names -     Guardian Angel, Pandong

Personal Profile - (Excerpts form his own personal profile quoted verbatim) -  I am a Filipino engineer who recently discovered himself more comfortable  in writing  letters instead of numbers, and more at ease interacting with humans rather than machines. I am happily married for 12 years and a doting father of two wonderful children.  I feel it is my advocacy to inspire spouses, parents and children. This is because I believe that all problems in the world start within the family  and how kids are being treated even before they were brought into this world. Finally, this is also to let the world know that a product of a broken family like me can still be happy, that being among the poorest of the poor is not a hinder to fulfill a dream.    

The Blog Technical Features -  The blog is a combination of a commercial and family blog rolled into one. The template and layout are simple and not that eye  catching  yet their simplicity probably make them more attractive since the posts in this blog are mostly serious and family oriented.  Opening of site is moderate- not too slow, not too fast.

Contents - This is a serious blog written by a person who has a personal mission in his writing and that is, to spread the message that one can succeed even from a humble beginning and being a product of a broken family. The life of Angel is one of personal struggles through grinding poverty and the effects of a broken family in  his young formative life. He worked at a tender age when others of his age would still be playing and pampered by their parents. More than his personal schooling (he is a licensed engineer), Angel learned so much from the school of hard knocks. These backgrounds reflect so much in his articles that focus more on the bonding and strengthening of family ties. It is as if he wants to shield his kids and other kids too from the struggles and trials he carried on in his younger years. His articles are fraught with so much practical information about children development and interpersonal relationships within the family. His articles are probably a mirror of how he and his wife are bringing up their family.
