Philippine Independence Day – Freedom from Spain

Philippine Independence Day – Freedom from Spain

110 ten years ago, on this day, June 12, the year was 1898. After decades of Spanish rule, the Philippines finally had its freedom and independence from colonial rule. Emilio Aguinaldo waved proudly our flag in front of the Filipino people who gathered in Cavite el Viejo as the first play of our national anthem was heard among our brethren. Marcha Filipina Magdalo and now known as Lupang Hinirang.

I would like to thank the people who own this day. Because of them, we enjoy free speech, democracy, liberty and free will. Who are they? Who are these people? The true Filipino who owns this day are the Katipuneros, who are farmers, peasants, and fishermen who sacrificed their lives for their family to enjoy freedom, also, for us today to enjoy it. These people did not go to school and study the French Revolution like Rizal did. Nor they have great minds that made them famous like most of our National Heroes. These people just followed their hearts’ desire. The desire for truth and freedom.

I could not imagine what joy that would have been, especially for those who lost their love ones during the struggle. Maybe in this present time, we could not see the significance of that / this great day, June 12. For most people this day is just like any other holidays wherein you receive double pay or a time to take a day off, a day away from school, another time for strolling, a time to play or go out. Just like any ordinary day.

But if you would just imagine, if you were to live 120 years ago, every morning you wake up with fear, discomfort, and uncertain of your future. Like the Katipuneros did, every moment of their lives, controlled by people that is not of their own race. Deprived of the things that belong to them, land, property and even life. And then one day, you wake up and everything changes. Unspeakable joy and happiness, knowing your family’s lives would be much better. Experience the feeling to be free at last.

110 years may pass and so on. Our nation changes from time to time. Some say its getting better, and some say its getting worse. All I can say is, I hope the Katipuneros who gave us this freedom are proud and happy. I hope each and every one of us, on this day, or even everyday in our lives from henceforth, let us all embed in our hearts and minds the principles of the Katipuneros. Let their blood flow within our veins and become Katipuneros as well.

The Katipunan Objectives
Under the leadership of Bonifacio, the Katipunan laid down three fundamental objectives or aims: political, moral and civic. The political objectives consisted in working for the separation of the Philippines from Spain. The moral objective revolved about around the teaching of good manners, hygiene, good morals, and attacking obscurantism, religious fanaticism, and weakness of character. The civic aim revolved around the principle of self-help and the defense of the poor and the oppressed. All members were urged to come to the aid of the sick comrades and their families, and in case of death the society itself was to pay for the funeral expenses. For the purpose of economy however, the society saw to it that the funeral was of the simplest kind, avoiding unnecessary expenses so common under the rule of the friars.

How do bloggers make money? Earning money online

I supposed you have already read about my previous post describing what is a blog.

The next step would be introducing to you the most common and easiest way to monetize your blog. Knowingly or not you have may have already viewed hundreds or thousands of these.

Why I say common? You might not notice it but everytime you view a webpage, or a specific site, it is always present (although not all).

Why I say easy? It is easy because all you have to do is create an account, write your blog and copy & paste the html codes.

What I am talking about is a program called Adsense from Google. It is free to sign up and all you have to do is wait for the application to be approved (before getting an account with adsense it is advisable to create your blog first, post your first 2 to 3 posts). Putting it on your blog is easy, you just copy and paste the html codes that are provided by adsense. And what makes it even easier is that Blogger (blogspot where this blog is hosted) have already automated adding adsense to your blog. Another thing is, all the ads that would be displayed on your blog will be related to the topics of what the reader is viewing.

Once you have your ads posted on your blog, all you have to do now is wait for your readers to visit your site and click on those ads. But, always remember, never click on the ads on your blog or else your account with Adsense will be disabled. All clicks made from your site are recorded and analyzed by the Adsense Team, and if they find something suspicious about those clicks, you will be banned from the Adsense Program. Also, never tell or instruct your friends or anybody to click on those ads.

Adsense payouts are done thru check, fund transter, and their new way the Western Union money transfer.

I hope I have contributed to your knowledge regarding this topic. If you have any questions, just click on the Forum tab on top, register there and post your questions on the Website reviews.

Entrecard is temporarily unavailable. I checked my widget early this morning and found out that they are not appearing at all. Also slowing the loading time of my pages. I visited the site Entrecard.Com and is temporarily unavailable.


There was a fire at our datacenter resulting in the failure of some of our systems, our database server appears to be offline still, we're working on it and we're really sorry about the issues at this time. more information arriving shortly.
Served from s02

For those who were not informed, I also received this email.


Unfortunately, there has been an electrical fire at the data center housing Entrecard's servers. The servers have not been damaged, but the site may be down for as long as 12 hours.

Entrecard is hosted with ThePlanet, and this fire has effected over 9000 websites, as many of the world's most popualar websites are hosted with ThePlanet. They are working around the clock to get their data center back online, and we are hoping that they get it back online fast.

Thank you for your pateince and understanding with this rare and frustrating problem. Unfortunately, there is absolutely nothing we can do but wait for The Planet to get their datacenter back online.

Please check back with Entrecard in 12 to 24 hours.

Entrecard Team

We will just hope that Entrecard will be back as soon as possible.
