Something New and Something Free!

Something new. This pic was taken several days before July 26, my birthday.
I am wearing a pashmina, my new love! :)

Still something new. I now have my own domain! :) After contemplating for the longest time, I finally decided to buy one. And honestly, I don't like my new dotcom name.

I really like the www.allaboutelizabeth.com but somebody already owns it. I was too sleepy that night when I registered the wondersandwanders.com. :( And I regret that I didn't wait another day to think of a better name.

Ever wonder how I arrived on such identity which I would have to bear with for a year? Since my posts are mostly about my travels and my activities as a working mom, I decided that it should have the word "wander". And when we wander, and discover and see new things, we wonder, right? And wonder in arcdictionary.com means : that emotion which is excited by novelty, or the presentation to the sight or mind of something new, unusual, strange, great, extraordinary, or not well understood; surprise; astonishment; admiration; amazement. So there. My reason for that homophonic domain name. :)

I wanted to buy another domain exclusive for me and my family's discoveries of places, food and things. But that can wait. For the meantime, this blog will remain as it is. It will be used to post our food and place trips, to join online contests -which I love to do!, and do paid advertisements, if I have opportunities from pay-per-post sites.

And speaking of online contests, I just won P1,000 as a consolation prize from Jehz. I didn't win the Android phone but that is so alright. The grand winner and the runner-up deserved the prizes. :)

PS: I lost my blog roll when I customized my domain. Please bear with me while I update my list. Let me know, too, if you want to be added to it. Thanks! :)
