SavingsPinay November Quick Recap

Monday, November 30, 2015
It is almost 25 days before Christmas and I still can't believe that we are almost through the year 2015. I kind of feel a little nostalgic leaving 2015 just because I know I have goals set that wasn't met. And who's to blame, right?! MYSELF. 

But I want to be very positive. Have you read my Sunday Post over my personal blog, IzzaGlino? It was my birthday post entitled I Don't Know About You But I'm Feeling 22. Hope you can read that post. 

Today's post is our November Quick Recap. And I still would want to extend my gratitude for supporting SavingsPinay.

Here's this month's quick recap.

1. We hit 91,000 pageviews!!!

Hitting the 90,000 mark even though I wasn't able to publish that much content is awesome. Thank you for being such an awesome readers. Now I feel more positive that we can hit the 100,000 mark to conclude 2015. Hope you can help me. Spread the link for this blog to your friends who are also into financial freedom. 

2. SavingsPinay November Series: Yumaman sa Mutual Fund

This month's series is a huge success. I was on time publishing all the post which makes me super happy. I also got a lot of feedback and impression on my Facebook Page. The SavingsPinay Series this November is me trying to incorporate my experience investing in mutual fund. To summarize here's the November Series : Yumaman sa Mutual Fund posts:

I hope you are looking forward for the last SavingsPinay Series of 2015 on December. 

3. Back to Freelance Writing

A little surprise for November is an opportunity to do freelance content writing again. I didn't know that my account at Upwork (known as Odesk before)  is still alive. The I got an invitation for a job interview. I responded on the email and got the job!!! I am a Strategic Content Website Writer which sounds so amazing. I will be busy creating web pages, blog articles and social media posts. Super excited with this one. Also, I am thinking of posting an Extra Income Year-End Report where I narrate how much money I made for 2014 with my side-hustles. What do you think about this idea? Is it something you'll be happy to read or not?

4. My Birthday

I celebrated my 22nd birthday last November 9 and it was super nice. I will talk more about what happened on my personal blog with pictures and more stories but for this blog I just wanted to quickly announce that I celebrated my birthday and I am now 22!!! Amazing how we age that quick.

5. Overspending 

For November I just shop like a little kid. I splurged on skincare items from Olay which I made  YouTube video about. I also shopped for more makeups that I plan to put on a Collective Haul video for December. I think its because I deprived myself from shopping for the past months. The last time I shopped all out was my Recent Purchase Haul video and that was back on August when I still have long hair. And it's my birth month anyway. (wink* wink*)

SAVINGSPINAY SERIES | Day 2: Gabay sa Tamang Pagpili ng Mutual Fund

Wednesday, November 18, 2015

Thank you for the positive response on  this month's SavingsPinay Series. Make sure to joining the SavingsPinay Facebook Group which would be very active in terms of giving budget, saving, productivity and entrepreneurship advice.

Today we will be focusing on the Guide in Choosing the Right Mutual Fund to Invest With. 

Now, choosing a mutual fund is like walking into a mall filled with stores that offer great choices, discounts and more. In the United States for example, there are about 10,000 different mutual fund you can choose. It's fortunate that here in the Philippines the number of mutual fund types are just around a hundred. Still, one could argue that sorting though this hundred of choices is very hard.

Is this your first time investing?

SAVINGSPINAY SERIES | Day 1 : Mutual Fund: Ano, Sino, Saan, Kailan, Bakit at Paano?

Tuesday, November 17, 2015

Today is the start of the SavingsPinay Series: Yumaman sa Mutual Fund. I am so excited to share in-depth thoughts on a  - particular topic that's close to my heart --- Mutual Fund.

December 2013 when I got interested with Mutual Fund. I was into reading books and personal finance blog back then. It is also the time when SavingsPinay started. Out of curiosity I applied for a Save and Learn Mutual Fund account under First Metro Asset Management Inc. aka FAMI. 

Now I'm not an endorser and I don't receive anything from FAMI. Based on my research its one of the longer and more stable financial company so it's where I decided to invest. 

This coming January 2016 I will be celebrating my second year as a mutual fund investor. I looked at my portfolio the other day and so happy with my progress. My main goal now is to diversify my investment into other investment vehicle.

As first installment I will give an ultimate guide on what Mutual Fund is all about. Don't forget to share your thoughts in the comment section below.

Personal Financial Habits That Can Make You Become Richer

Monday, November 9, 2015

Now that a new year is about to start many will most probably reflect on how 2015 went. I am not 100% happy with what I did this year. You may have read and visited my 2015 Personal and Financial Goals and still many of the items didn't push through READ: Mid-Year Update of My Personal and Financial Goals.

But it's a far better year than 2014 and this is something I have to be proud off. I can't wait to share to you my End of the Year Report and a whole lot more posts familiar as a new year begins.
Today, I'd like to focus on the word HABIT. According to dictionary habit is something that a person does often in a regular and repeated way. And there's so called Personal Financial Habits That Can Make You Become Richer.

It was my first time attending a Blogapalooza event. A day of the year reserved for the grandest and biggest Business to Blogger (B2B) event.

The event is from 10am-6pm and booths from different brands (small to well-known) lined up and waiting to be visited by excited bloggers like me.

SavingsPinay's October Quick Recap

Monday, November 2, 2015

Today's post is my quick recap about SavingsPinay for the recently concluded month of October. Again, the blog posts I was able to publish was low. Blame the procrastinator in me that I can't possibly beat. But know that I am trying my hardest to regain my blog sanity and become a productive blogger.

I wish maintaining a blog will be easy but sadly it takes more than just a platform to do it. Thank you for keeping SavingsPinay alive.

Heres this month's quick recap.

1. We hit 85,000 pageviews!!!  
I always start my quick recap by giving you the summary of the pageviews we gathered. I just feel that it sets the mood for this post a lot. My wish to hit 100,000 pageviews before 2015 ends is still alive so I hope you can help me make that dream come true. You can revisit my Archive to find the posts that appeal to you and just continue learning more about personal finance through SavingsPinay. Better join SavingsPinay Facebook Group too if you haven't yet.

2. SavingsPinay October Series: Ayoko sa Utang! 5 Days To Be Debt-Free At Last

I apologize for the one-week delay that happened on Day 2- Day 5 of the SavingsPinay Series. Again, all blame is on me and my not so good use of my time. I hope though that you still learned something out of the series. To summarize here's the October Series: Ayoko sa Utang! 5 Days To Be Debt-Free At Last posts. 

Join me again on our November Series.

3. Must Do's Before 2015 Ends

I gave my must do's before 2015 ends in SavingsPinay and I am glad to scratch off some items. My most crucial must do is the eBook and the completion of two more series. I also like to count getting my Unified ID as a critical one to accomplish before a new year begins so I know that I need to find time and apply. 

4. Attended Not Just One But Two Blogger Events

I am so happy and honored to be able to attend not just one but two awesome events. I came to Regina Online Investing Equestrian Cup Regina Online Investing Relaunch last Saturday October 25 and to the 2015 Blogapalooza on October 26. It was a back-to-back great opportunity for me. What happened during these two events will surely be uploaded on SavingsPinay this week. I hope you can stay tune.
