Vacation Research (4 hours and 50 minutes)
  • Giving some insights and perspective regarding the weather conditions and recommended solutions since we can hardly predict the weather.
  • In search of an affordable flights one-way or round-trip--and still on the lookout for some deals. Deals changes every now and then. Just make sure to be on the look-out ;)
  • Hotels versus hostel deals. Backpackers choice--hostels
  • I began searching for Manila spots--for starters, the Cultural/Historical spots in Manila
  • Note: Most tourist spots I saved are around Intramuros--which needs a strong muscle for a long walk--do let me know what else or kind of spots and how far will it be from the main city.
  • I am still going to check for some flights--just let me know if there are things you might want to add.

Customary Inbox Check
(1 hour and 40 minutes)
  • Since I was out half of my allotted working hours yesterday (June 3, 2014) and this morning--it felt like I was way too far out of my work. It felt like I am going back to step one
  • And checking your inbox is the best way to keep you back on track.
  • Getting a quick recap for feedbacks and updates--and you’ll never go wrong.
  • Fixed and tweaked Diary a.k.a ‘Daily Work Update’  from feedbacks and to keep myself updated on what’s new and what-not

Comment posting for DUYP (20 minutes)
  • Posted comments for dare-up-your-party--it’s actually my third day of posting comments for this page. 
  • Again, the easiest part of the job is socializing. Working while socializing equals fun.
  • Added two comments and waiting for a green light.

Comment posting for Ideal-Helper (20 minutes)
  • My third day of posting comments on Ideal-Helper and nothing’s change--it’s still the best part among the other task ;)
  • Added two comments and waiting for a feedback

Proofreading Ideal-Helper Pages (30 minutes)
  • Random proofreading of pages is good apart from the fact that it’s really a dragging task--if the one you are proofreading consists of thousands of words.
  • But since these are random pages with various topics--it’s fun!
  • You can learn and have some ideas on what should a VA do to give your boss his time ‘worth it’ and not be a burden.
  • It helps a lot for VA starters to read these contents.

Blog Post Reply (30 minutes)
  • In case such as Internet downtime/Intermittent connection, this blogpost will give both ideas to employer and VAs to be resourceful.
  • Internet is the most essential tool for outsourcing your work and connection downtime is not an excuse nor hinders daily tasks to be completed.
  • To Francis Main VA: Please check out the blog post and kindly jot down your feedback :)
