Most of you have been coming to our site and reading posts that appear to be written by faceless authors. Well, today, we have decided to reveal the writers behind The Salitype Society's blog, salitypesociety.com
We at The Salitype Society are bloggers who began communicating on a social networking site called Friendster. Not many bloggers belonged to that site, so a number of us who love to write were drawn to each others' blogs. Needless to say, we have forged a special bond. Blogging does that to us all.
After a year of blogging, we realized we want to come together to support a cause. "Why not share some of our blogging time and talent, and help send an underprivileged child to school?," we asked ourselves. Thus, a huge bulk of our earnings from this site - minus maintenance expenses - will go toward supporting a charity known as . In this regard, we would like to invite you, our dear blogging buddies, to get involved.
"Education renders people easy to govern, but difficult to enslave."
Many of our readers have formed a bond with Salitype, so we came up with this post to introduce ourselves to you.
Betchai- Hello from San Diego, California! I am a Geometry/Algebra /Chemistry teacher and a certified nature's wanderer. I love to spend my free time enjoying the great outdoors. When having a relaxing time indoors, I blog! I blog because I want to write about the simple joys I found in nature! Also, blogging allows me to see and experience the world through others' experiences. Plus there is productivity in blogging, which I call blogging happine$$ :)
Greetings from California! My name is Chay, accountant during the day, nursing student nights and weekends. Jeff, one of our regular contributors is my devoted husband, best friend, therapist and adviser. We have two children - Psalm, a brave young man serving the US Airforce, and Christine, a hard-working nursing student (she has been featured in a couple of blogs here).
I believe dreams can come true by never giving up on them and not allowing anyone to remove the focus. My glass is always half full and rising even when times are tough. Throughout my life, many people have contributed their life experience stories that helped me to get to where I'm at. Many times, this has been my recipe for success. This blog is an opportunity to give back, with an alternate perspective, a new view, a mission.
Hi everyone! This is Cherry greeting you from The Garden City, Singapore! I am known as Cher in the blogosphere and Che to my family and friends. I am a non-practicing dentist, an amateur photographer, a part-time blogger, a sanctioned nature lover, and a wanderlust by heart (I don't have the time and means to scratch my itchy feet just yet).
I came from the far flung province of Isabela, Philippines. Being the youngest in a big family of seven, I remained childish and young at heart through the years but I valiantly conquered life’s twist and turns. I am now happily married to a big-hearted man and blessed with one precious child.
Hi from United Kingdom! I am Eng. I am a nurse by profession, a wife and a mother by vocation, a friend and a blogger by choice. I love to read, write, take snaps here and there and on those few inspired moments I also rhyme. I enjoy life, respect it, learned from it. I am who I am as the result of ever changing tides of time, of people around me, of circumstances of life itself. I am the product of my choices. I am a strong believer that in life, what you sow is what you shall reap. In giving alms, let not your left hand know what the right hand is doing.
Hallöchen! Greetings from DE! I am Maricar, grew up in Cavite, Philippines, and am now residing for more than four years here in Wolfenbüttel, Niedersachsen Germany. A full time wife, married to Michael, a chemist, traveler, loves to cook, loving and loves my children like his own. I am a mother, my children are Romar, my eldest son, graduating in Computer Science; Roxanne, my second and only daughter, studying Radiologic Technology; and my youngest son Robin, junior high school student, loves sports and singing.
Through blogging, I met my friends here in The Salitype Society. Meeting these wonderful people in this blogosphere is, for me, a treasure I will always keep in my heart.
"Traveling is the best school in LIFE"... Michael's quote. I have learned a lot from traveling. Experienced, saw and met people. There are still places to see and stories to tell.
Howdy! I'm MJ Browning from wild, wonderful West Virginia, the Almost Heaven state! It's been my home for the past 9 years. Prior to moving here, I grew up in Cavite, Philippines. I worked as copy editor at the Beckley Newspaper for more than 8 years. I recently resigned to be a full-time stay-at-home mom for our baby daughter, Teyla Chanterelle. She was born in June last year. I'm happily married to Roger Dale (a.k.a. Rog), a welder/steelworker with 15 years experience. Two years ago, we said our "I dos" in a hot air balloon 3,000 feet above sea level in Albuquerque, New Mexico. I believe in taking risks, having fun and doing crazy things sometimes because we only live once. My hobbies include reading, playing the piano, hiking and shooting guns whenever I get the chance (target shooting, that is).
Hello! I am Tes. I have been a kindergarten teacher for the past 17 years. I am the second child in a family of four. I am married to my childhood buddy and best friend, Doods, who introduced me to the wonderful world of photography. I have discovered blogging some three years past and have loved it ever since. One of the greatest blessings in blogging is connecting with people. Blogging has blessed my life with dear friends who continue to enrich my life.
Hello! I'm Zen, a doctor. I love simplicity, blue skies, sunset, and a friend for life. I write to express not to impress - with all humility. I love the simple joys of life, as basic as getting air into my lungs and food into my stomach; rest my brain which really goes into hard work when I'm on duty so to keep it from breaking down.
I can't sing, can't even whistle a tune. I love watching my little boys grow, but it really is a challenge to listen to their questions. I always end up saying, "I surrender!" to my 7-year-old who poses queries from A-Z in one sitting - the thrills and joys of motherhood! I love it, really love it, every second of it!
I'm Ruthi from down-east Maine ... the newest babe [wink*] and only a week-old member of The Salitype Society. I am an educator... now an out-of-school teacher. I was a High School teacher for 11 long years in the Philippines but chose to give up my vocation to marry the "love of my life." I love to write... paint... design [clothes, jewelries, and websites]... take photos and, most of all, I love to blog. That explains why I used to have 9 blogs at one time. Blogging, for me, helps keep my sanity intact.

Rog shot this photo of me standing on the little pier at Little Beaver Lake in Fall 2008. I remember marveling at the spectacular reflection of the autumn trees in the still water and totally loving the warmth of the sun on my bare arms. It was such a beautiful day - blue skies and all. On chilly wintry days, I look at this picture and take solace in the knowledge that the cold and snow will disappear eventually and I will get to go to the lake again.
I never realized how addicting photography can be until i got hooked...completely and utterly hook into it. Apple seems to be one subject i'll never get tires of. They're always available and hey! they don't just taste gorgeous....they look one, too!

A friend of mine with two little girls introduced me to online shopping. With two children in tow shopping was more parenting than shopping. Sometimes, the kids would become expert kids---get the point??? While in the middle of trying on an outfit we learn to multitask during a once relaxing adventure. Moms of the world can you relate to this experience? Just writing about it opens up memories of tension, love, and just wanting to not do it again-EVER. I can understand her frustration. Then, she found Shopwiki.com. Let me explain in a few words what this meant to her and to me-A NEW LIFE! I hate it when I am on the fence about a subject. One day she called me and told me about Shopwiki.com. Not only have I found good deals on clothes, shoes and home decorations, but I have the option to buy directly from the major manufacturers. I can compare prices and find the best deal. It is like shopping in a big mall where you can find the same item under different brand names for less money. Check out their store directory, product directory, gift suggestions and buying guides. Those added features are helpful in finding the things you are looking for. They have just introduced their spring 2010 style guide and WOW-there are a lot of choices. Today on my lunch break at work I toured the purse department, I checked out matching shoes, and their spring outfits. Since my husband will read this so I must add this line “It was only window shopping dear”. I then went into the bathing suit department-I think after winter feasting I should save this department tour for a much later date. Lunch was delightful for me today.
Not only can I shop without parking hassles, time constraints, and without adorable distractions, this opportunity is available 24 hours a day 7 days a week. I can even shop late at night in my pajama. Try finding a mall that offers these amenities. Since time is very important to me, my shopping time is cut in half with this website. I now have time to cook, study, spend time with the family and enjoy movies and popcorn with my husband .
Shopwiki is expanding overseas and I can’t wait to share this news with my friend

Few of those are:
- I want an epidural the earliest possible time- it is an anesthetic block which desensitized the lower part of your body. The anesthetic agent blocked the nerve root in the epidural space near your spinal cord.
- My husband to be present during birth, normal or otherwise
- My newborn child to be given Vitamin k- to prevent Vitamin k deficiency bleeding in newborn. However, there was a researched/study done about vitamin k and its possible linked to an increased in Leukemia(blood cancer). Do an exhaustive research before you decide on it.
- I want an episiotomy - surgical cut in the perineum . I want my baby to be born as quickly as possible. This procedure was normally performed in the past but not anymore. It can take time to heal and a there's a possibility of urinary incontinence.
There are situations wherein a c-section is necessary:
- The placenta lies so low in the uterus that it covers the exit to the birth canal , better known as placenta previa.
- The umbilical cord falls forwards which may cut off oxygen and blood supply to the baby ( cord prolapse).
- Fetal distress
- If the mother is affected by high blood pressure
- If the baby is on breech presentation - can still be delivered vaginally but with difficulty.
- cephalo-pelvic disproportion

I lost a father and two younger brothers to heart disease and cancer. I hold them in fond remembrance, in memories both beautiful and painful.
