Updates and Daily Cuteness!



Site updates

Hey Everyone!
Hey Everyone!
Soooo, I haven't blogged since March, and unfortunately I'm not writing right now to say that I'm coming back for good. As you can read in the entry below, I've gotten really busy running my network of websites, and I ran out of time for blogging :(

Don't worry though, I have absolutely no intention of taking the site down. DailyCute.net is incredibly important to me, so even if there are no constant blog updates, you can still enjoy the rest of the content of the site!

I'm talking about the sections like the Paper Crafts and Plushie Tutorials, where you can download templates to make your own stuff. You can do a scavenger hunt around the site to earn an award. There's a collection of games I like around the internet in this page. You can go check out the optical illusions page, or download some screen pals to keep you company on your desktop.

So with that I leave you! There's a lot more to explore here at DailyCute, so go have fun and explore! I love you all, and (hopefully) i'll be talking to you soon (^____^)

October 4th - Question Blog!
October 4th - Question Blog!
Hi Everyone! Long time no blog. I've been pretty sick the past couple of days so I had absolutely no motivation to blog or do anything at Daily Cute :(. I did however, watch too many movies, since that's the only thing that sounds appealing when you are sick and have a fever.

The good news it that I'm back! and ready to start blogging again! My friend Lien @ Hushstar did this type of blog the other day, so I decided to give it a try to. This is a blog where you guys get to ask me any questions about... pretty much anything :)! Life, school, work, hobbies, friends, family etc. This is your chance to really get to know me better. Remember, you can ask as many questions as you like & don't be afraid to ask about anything! n___n
I'll edit the blog post and add questions with answers. Ask away!


Questions & Answers:

What's your favorite ice cream flavor?
I'm gonna have to go with chocolate cookie dough. No matter what brand it is, cookie dough always tastes FANTASTIC! It's probably got something with the fact that whenever I bake, I always eat half of the batter before it even goes in the oven. lol n___n

Do you like anime shows? If so, what's your favorite one?
I used to LOVE watching anime shows. I would do it religiously after I got back from school. Once I got to college though, I didn't have any time to watch any of the shows I was into, so I stopped watching altogether. My all time favorite show is Inuyasha, followed closely by Card Captor Sakura, Ranma 1/2 & Yu Yu Hakusho.

What got you interested in making a website?
When I was 12, I was pretty bored, and I was really into Pokemon. I thought it would be cool if I could create a website for my favorite two pokemon, mew & mewtwo. I started my very first website on a free host called Expage (it doesn't exist anymore). Eventually when Expage became too restricting I learned HTML and moved off to Angelfire, a good free web hosting alternative at the time.

Do you collect anything?
I collect a couple of things. My largest one is an owl figurine collection. Owls used to be my favorite animal when I was a little girl so whenever I went to visit a new city or country I would search around everywhere to find an owl figurine to add to my collection. I currently have over 30 owls. I also collect magnets of all places I go and I put them up on my fridge :)

What's your favorite food in da WHOLE WIDE WORLD?
That's TOUGH to answer... See... I love food too much... Lol! but if I HAD to pick one thing, it would probably be sushi. All kinds of sushi :)! I can't get enough of it n__n

Do you like drawing?
I adore it. One of the websites that I used to have when I was younger was a portfolio of all the things I drew. I especially like drawing chibi (cute) anime characters, since I was really into anime when I was younger :)

What kind of movies do you like?
I honestly love watching all sorts of movies. I'm not too picky about genre, but my preference is usually comedy. I also really like action movies and horror movies. My best friend Anafer and I are on a constant quest to find the scariest movies. We've found some pretty good ones so far :)

What's your favorite animal?
Like I mentioned above, it used to be the owl. I still really like them, but honestly I think my favorite animal now is the Chichilla! I've completely fallen in love with Zoe, and I think no other animal can rival its cuteness!

What's your favorite show?
Its a close match between two. My favorite show today is Family Guy, because no other show can make me laugh as much as that show does! I've watched every single episode, and most episodes I've seen twice or three times. Before Family Guy however, I would have to say Inuyasha takes the credit for being the show that I followed religiously, until cartoon network took it down! (cries u___u;)

What did you major in in college?
I majored in Management Consulting and minored in International Business.

What's your favourite drink?
I'm gonna have to go with, the fruit smoothies at Orange Julius. Specifically the banana strawberry smoothie. YUM!

What's your favourite music genre & band?
I like all types of music! My favorites though are probably the songs that are currently on the radio, because I spend a lot of time in the car! My favorite artist is Taylor Swift :)! All her stories really speak to me and I can't WAIT to see her in concert someday!

What's your absolute favorite film?
It's really hard to choose one film, but i'd probably go with Spirited Away. Its a Hayao Miyazaki movie that is absolutely fantastic for any age group. Its rated a 97% on rotten tomatoes. Check it out here.

What's your job, and do you enjoy it?
I just graduated from the University of Notre Dame in may of this year. I've been working full time with Emerson (my fiance), on my other two websites. They are GivesMeHope.com and Givoogle.com. I absolutely LOVE my job. Self employed! We get to make our own schedule (even though we're very hard working, so we don't really take days off on weekends), and I get to work on web programming/managing! (something that started out as a hobby and I've been doing since I was 12)!

If you could go on a date with any celebrity, who would it be?
Well, the celebrity that I would like the meet the most is actually Taylor Swift. I think she's an amazing girl who is so passionate about what she does, and RIDICULOUSLY talented. So I guess it would be more like getting coffee than an actual date. lol!

Any advice for girls with websites?
Put a lot of work into it and keep the content original! Sometimes it's really hard to think of new things to do on a website, but sometimes you can do things with a spin! Like a SOTM competition with interviews, special adoptables, creative contests, etc! People will surely keep coming back :)!

Do you like Pirates of the Caribbean?
Love it! My favorite movie was the first one, although I really liked the second and third too!

What would be the one thing you would save if your house was on fire?
Ever since I have Zoe the answer is definitely, her and her cage! Before that though, it would DEFINITELY be my macbook. Can't live without it!

What is your favorite color?
It's probably pink. Even though its not the color that I wear the most, its still the color I like the most :)

What is your favorite memory from childhood?
One of the coolest things that ever happened to me was when I was 6 years old. We were in a cruise of the Caribbean islands, and the cruise had a casino. I was playing in one of the slot machines, when suddenly I hit all lucky 777's! I won 500 dollars in QUARTERS! To this day I can still hear the coins raining down!

What are your favorite books? (besides HP)
Snap! Harry Potter is my favorite series! Apart from HP, these are up there: Lord of the Rings, Pride and Prejudice, Hamlet, To kill a Mockingbird.

September 10th - CONTEST TIME! *everyone cheers*
Hi Everyone! I decided that its time to bring some contests and new activities to DC, which is the reason DailyCute is having its first ever Site of the Month contest! This SOTM has many prizes though :)! The winner of the SOTM will win three things:

1. Their site will be featured for an entire month here at DailyCute in a "Spotlight On" box.
2. The winner will get an online interview that will be displayed here at Daily Cute! (unless you request not to, that is). The interview will be a mix of website/personal questions, like the site's history, future plans for the site, personal interests, hobbies, etc.
3. A custom Panda Siggy for your site, message board, etc! This one has my name on it, but I can change the color and size for your name :)


I think this is a nice way to make SOTM more personal, and to actually get to know our SOTM winners better!

July 1st - AMAZING NEWS!!!
I need to share this with you all because i'm SO EXCITED! I've been waiting for this day for SO LONG, and it finally happened. I'm really excited to announce that DailyCute.net has made it to the TOP 100,000 of all websites in the internet!

This is a BIG DEAL! Lemme explain: Alexa.com is an online company that tracks the ranking of all websites on the internet based on their daily unique hits. There are millions of websites on the internet, but Alexa only provides detailed statistics for the top 100,000 sites on the internet. DailyCute is currently receiving 700-900 hits a day ^-^, which was enough to bring it to the top 100,000!

Thank you everyone for helping DailyCute.net be a top 100,000 site! I could have never done it without you!!! This is a picture of the goodness :) Click the image to see the full picture. Also, check below for today's cute picture!

NEW WEBSITE!!! please help us in the launching!
Hi everyone! I'm really excited to announce that my fiancee and I are launching a new site! its like the opposite of FML (fmylife.com) and we're really excited about it!

The site is called Givesmehope! http://www.givesmehope.com

On GMH, people share with the world their most hopeful, uplifting moments and allow others to draw strength from their experiences.

Let me share one of my favorite stories :)




Four years ago, I tried to kill myself by swallowing a bottle of painkillers. My online friend, who I'd never met, was the only person who knew. He called 911, they pumped my stomach to save my life. Today, I got my bachelor's degree in sociology. I'm starting grad school in August. GMH

I`m from Nicaragua and worked hard my whole life to get in to med school in the US. After acing my MCATs, I`d been accepted in to four of the top schools, but i couldn't afford to go. I was going to have to go back to my country. Today, Tulane offered me a scholarship. They`re paying half my tuition. Now, I can go. GMH

Two years ago, my husband and I were planning to get divorced. My mother was dying of ovarian cancer and didn't know we were separating. Her last wish was for us to work out our problems and not get divorced, so we agreed we had to at least try. I've never been happier. I've never looked back. GMH

For years, I have been donating $10/month to sponsor YMCA memberships for poor kids, but never seeing the results. Then during a basketball game I coached, one kid asked if he could play just the second half. I asked why. "Because my brother is wearing the shoes." His brother is on the on the other team. They share one pair of shoes. GMH




I don't know how big GMH can get. But with all the suffering and misery in the world, I believe GMH has the potential to be a much-needed source of hope and inspiration. GMH is a breath of fresh air from the negativity of the mainstream media and dealing with life's hassles!

It's like Chicken Soup for the Soul - the 21st Century, Twitter-style version.

So if you have 17 seconds... Please help us DIGG THIS STORY UP!, and VOTE IT UP ON REDDIT!


If you dugg it or voted it up on reddit please leave me a message with your username for either site! I will draw TWO WINNERS that will get free advertising for a week at daily cute! I'll pick them out randomly!


it'll take you no time but you'll help us out so much!! thanks everyone!! :)

I'M ENGAGED!!!!
I'M ENGAGED!!!!
Hi everyone! Sorry I couldn't post this yesterday, but like I promised, here are the BIG NEWS!

may i get a drumroll please.... i'm now officially.....ENGAGED!!!
On April 9th my boyfriend Emerson Spartz proposed to me at a Chicago Bulls games. I can safely say that it was the happiest day of my life!

Watch the video that my friends took!



I didn't suspect it at ALL. All I knew was that he got really good tickets to the game, and we were going with his family to Chicago to see it. When we got in, these two guys approached me and asked me to sign a waiver, and Emerson told me that I was going to participate in a half time game... I almost DIED when I heard about this... the stadium is SO BIG... there were more than 21,000 people at the stadium that day. I thought I was seriously going to embarrass myself... haha.

The game I was going to play consisted in being blindfolded, and then I had to walk around the court looking for benny the bull (its the Chicago bulls mascot). And the crowd would either say booo or goooo to let me know if I was going the right direction. Eventually when I reached benny, he turned around, took the blindfold off me, and Emerson was kneeling in front of me holding the ring in his hands.

Freeze Frame: I ALMOST had a heart attack. Words cannot describe how happy I felt! Of course I said yes! I jumped and hugged him and the crowd was cheering like crazy :). He carried me off court and then we went back up to meet up with his family when I was hit with a second surprise.

We were going up to the 7th floor and before the elevator opened up, I heard people screaming. When the doors opened up, ALL OUR FRIENDS were there! They all came up to Chicago for the game and they watched the entire thing!

I was so happy I was crying, We all hugged each other so much! We went to dinner after that, and my friends brought me a dress because that night we also went out to a dance club. It was so much fun!

I couldn't wait to share this with all of you guys! And I wanna know what you guys think!
Soooo here's the deal
Make a comment on this post, and tomorrow I will do a random lottery for all people who commented. I will draw two people who will get free advertising for the entire week! And then everyone's happy!

This news entry was posted on Emerson's website. (He's the founder and webmaster of www.mugglenet.com If you like Harry Potter, you've probably seen his site before! :)




And here are some pictures of the ocassion:
