199Jobs Review


I am always on the lookout for additional income streams especially when it's online and I can earn it from home. Recently, I have discovered 199jobs.com. This is a website where you sell your services for just 199 PHP. If you are familiar with Fiverr, then this, for me, looks like local version of it. This post is my 199jobs review.

I registered to the site and see if I can make some money out of it. Registration is pretty straight forward and if you have an email or a Facebook account, you are good to go.

I am a certified online marketing specialist. So, I listed my service as a website auditor under digital marketing category. You can see my service here.

On the day my listing was published,  I already received my first order. I finished the task within 3 days as promised from my sales copy then notified the buyer and the buyer completed the task on his end. After that, I received my payment of 159 PHP. 199jobs gets 20% of each completed order. That is how they make money.

After getting around a worth of 600 PHP completed order, I was able to withdraw the amount to my Paypal account. 199jobs has a minimum amount of 500 PHP before you can withdraw the money. The company transferred the money within 3 business days.



I also tried buying an article writing job from the site and the article was quite good and the delivery was on time. I published it as a blog post to one of my online ventures.

I recommend 199jobs.com for those who are looking for additional ways to earn money online in the Philippines. If you have a lot of services to sell, you can make significant amount of money through this site.

Midway Minkay Beach Resort

Wife and I went to Midway Minkay beach resort as part of my birthday celebration. We agreed to go out more often while we don't have kids yet. 

The resort is located in the Municipality of Initao, around a 45-minute bus ride from Iligan city where we live. We took a Rural bus transit with a fare of P85 each person.

The resort staff were friendly and polite. Area was clean and we enjoyed the white sands. We rented a room for two for P1,799 a night with complimentary breakfast. The food was great and there were a lot of amenities that you can enjoy such as renting banana boat, zip line and jet skis. 

Overall, we had an awesome time. I highly recommend the place.

Here is a video I created about the resort. Contact numbers and rates are found in the video.

July Google Adsense Payment Report

Gikan pakog laba medyo kapuy pa. :)

But it was a great day yesterday. I received another payment from Google Adsense with a significant increase compared to the month of June.



Month of June - 387.53 USD
Month of July - 529.15 USD (I received 24,159.71 Php)

A difference of 141.62 is great at least for me. This inspires me to keep going.

Traffic: The overall number of Sessions in my sites for the month of July is 39,027. June had the overall traffic of 28,666.

I am happy with my earnings so far and currently looking into affiliate marketing to add to it.

Unta musaka pa next month.

As part of my goal to learn mobile photography and videography, I bought a 3 in 1 mobile phone lens from Lazada. In this post, I will give example of images and videos using the lenses.

I really liked the wide angle and macro lenses. I will be using wide angle for videos and macro for photos.
