It is with the deepest of sorrows that we announce that our Pansita.net member Mimay of Coatable Coats has passed away. The community would like to extend our deepest sympathy to the loved ones she left behind.
We would like to request everyone to join us as we pray for the repose and peace of her soul.
Rest in peace, Mimay. We will miss you.
(As a tribute and to pay homage to a sweet and wonderful woman, I am keeping her site up for as long as Pansitan.net is alive so that her relatives and friends can always come back and read her entries while she was still with us.)
Top Ten Pansitan.Net Subdomains
Pansitan.net enjoys very good web stats. Above, you can see the top ten most visited subdomains in the community. I guess, one of the reasons we get a lot of visitors is because of the variety of entries we offer our readers. The above statistics are ranked based on number of visitors. (Based on January 2008 webalizer)
If you maintain a website, and have a site counter tool installed on your site, you probably enjoy looking at your numbers growing month by month (depending if you diligently refresh your contents to entice your guests to come back). But what do those measures really mean? Here’s a bit of explanation for each of them:
Requests - Also called a “page request” or “page” , a request is basically the same as a hit.
Visitor - A visitor is one IP (internet protocol, each computer that connects to the internet has its own IP) that goes to your site in a 30-min period. So if this same visitor comes back to your site after 30 minutes, she would be counted as a different visitor.
Unique Visitor - Much like a visitor, but with a unique visitor, your visitor’s IP is just counted once.
Page View – Page views show you a count of the number of pages looked at, not counting the graphic or whatever else file you have on your page.
There’s a lot of things you can learn from your statistics. Altho they may not be taken as the “end all and be all” since there might be some other factors involved like page caching and visitors who go thru a router to go to the internet but there still are some useful information that can teach you how to improve your site’s popularity and “reader-reach”. Also together with your stats, you might also want to know how your visitors found your site and which pages they go to and which they don’t look at.
Basically, when you study your website stats, consider your number of visitors, the pages they frequent, what link/site referred them to your site, and what are the normal keywords they used that landed them to your site. Site referrers could be your ad campaigns, or if you own a blog, a reciprocal link or search engine referral. Keywords are a very invaluable source of information for you. Your website counter will actually tell you which keywords you used you scored high on. Using these keywords you could try to optimize on those words a lot.
Another thing that you’d also like to look at is your daily visits per day. For Pansitan.net, the days with the highest visits among the members happen every Mondays and Wednesdays, with Tuesdays and Thursdays close seconds. The least day we get visitors is on Sunday (2 out of 25 websites). Knowing the day of the week your visitors come more often, would at least give you an insight on when you should normally update your site. If they come most often on a Tuesday, have your entry up and running by Monday night. This would at least give you a chance to set your visitors’ visiting habits to your site.
So how do you increase web traffic to your site? That’s something we’ll be talking about next time… For now, do visit our sites in the community and be entertained no end with what we offer you

It has amazed me, one time I was counting, that I’ve been hanging around the internet for about 10 years now. In fact, I met my first very serious relationship over the internet. He actually taught me a lot of things about the internet, Photoshop and websites. Altho we didn’t end up together and I know the main reason is because that relationship was just the bridge for me to meet up with a schoolmate from 25 years ago who eventually became my husband – my ultimate relationship of all.
Ok… where was I? Oh yeah, the internet. Since I could consider myself quite a veteran already, some people have asked me about webhostings and putting up their own sites. In fact, I’d helped quite a few people putting up their own websites in the past. I guided them through getting their own domain name (that thing that comes after the “www” thing) and getting their own hosts. For the domain name, I usually point them to one of the most popular websites for that because they’ve gotten really dirt cheap. For the server, I point them to my own domain – Hostgator.
I’ve had some problems with other hostings before and they’ve really gotten expensive then. But when you compare features point by point Hostgator actually gave you more bang for the buck. And actually, more than the features and the inexpensive plans, it’s their customer service that has always made me stay with them. Whatever problem I had, it was really easy to get a hold of them and they’d be able to troubleshoot really fast. That, for me, is very important. I wouldn’t want a cheap host but get really annoyed and irritated when I talk with them (much like when you want to get a hold with a customer support person from your phone service and you get this voice-activated system that’s really so annoying!)
For now, I have about 26 bloggers on my Pansitan.net domain, with about 2 to 3 more coming up soon. And honestly, I have not had any problems with my maintenance with them as far as hosting them is concerned. Most of them hosting their blogs on WordPress, too.
Hello!!!! We are revived!!!

So far, we have 26 members in the community and a few more will be added once they’re set up. For the meantime, come and enjoy the community – visit the members’ sites, leave them some comments and come back more often! There’s just so much to see here!
I am so proud to present the members of Pansitan.Net…
“Ang blog na ito .. ay mga personal na mga opinyon, kuro-kuro, kadramahan, kabaliwan at katatawanan. Wala po akong kinalaman sa Batibot na hindi ko pinanood dahil matanda na ako nang lumabas ang programa’ng yun. Bukod sa nawi-weridohan ako kay Pong dahil ang laki-laki nyang pagong pero ang liit-liit ng boses nya.”

“The day-to-day musings of a young wife, mother, sister, daughter, friend and colleague. God knows I don’t really have the time of day to record my thoughts for posterity, with a husband, two (three) toddlers, a 4 bedroom 2 1/2 bath house and Boris the Cat to take care of, but I’m taking a calculated plunge.“

“It takes a certain amount of courage for a person to put up a weblog. If courage is wanting, vanity will do. A vanity to presume that one’s life is more interesting than another’s. A vanity that presupposes another person’s life is to be stopped to read about your own. A vanity that unblinkingly says, “No, this is better.”
Courage I may not have but of vanity I have a lot.”

“There are so many gifted Photographers……..I’m not one of them …but my love for photography makes me determined to be a skilled one. Your comments on my photos will help me achieve this goal. Hope to hear from you.”
“It’s in the simplest existence,in the humblest company and in the emptiest moments that I learned to appreciate what I had… and find happiness right where I was. I didn’t have to reach far and dream big. One can only be as big as one sees oneself. The world will always be bigger still… and God, even more.”
“She’s a great little housewife,though sometimes she talks like a fool.But she helps at the store in the holiday rush,and she picks up the kids after school.And she puts down the phone when her husband comes home,and she changes from mother to wife. ‘Til she feels the words hanging between them, and she hangs by her words to her life.

“I believe places can speak to us and we have the equal ability to listen if we allow ourselves to. I have two homes where I live two lives. One, in the Philippines, and the other in Australia.
I was wondering when it would happen until it finally did. I’m talking about Australia speaking to me, not unlike the way my own country does. And the few times it did, I smiled to myself knowing that the process of my integration into Aussie life had begun.”
“I love to write… to string words together and make them flow through the tongue smooth like wine and rich like honey. Though I grew up with the notion that I wasn’t good enough, and maybe I’m not, I learned that it’s a free world and everybody deserves a place in the sun and his 15 minutes of glory. This site will serve as a collection of my short stories. My entries may be painfully sporadic, depending upon the dictates of my muse. This is my place and here I dare. This is your place too, should you care.”

“Local legends of the Visayan islands of the Philippines tell of places where invisible, magical folk live. They keep wild animals for pets and whoever harms the animals fall into misfortune. Those who let the animals be are blessed with good fortune. These places are sanctuaries for wildlife.
Mari-it Wildlife Conservation Park is one of the last of these places of sanctuary.”
“I’ve been mulling over the idea of having my own blog for a long time now and finally here it is! I have always loved writing down my thoughts and ideas, but really getting down to the written (or is it typewritten) word takes some effort and a lot of dedication to keep the posts going. So here goes…”

“I always had this love-hate relationship with words. People say I’m a man of words, for I am talkative. I say I’m a man of words for I tried my best to choose the best one when the need arises. But I don’t know.”
