Say Hello To Carlos
Welcome to another personal website in the world. My name is Carlos Velasco and I am the main man here.
I am the guy who's running this website. I am a Programmer, an Entrepreneur and a Street Philosopher who hails from Davao, Philippines.
And you can also add one more description: That lazy Filipino Webmaster who can't find the time to even update his own website.
I started this website when I was still a freelance programmer. As you can see when browsing through the articles, I have a lot to share in terms of freelancing.
This website has really served me well as a freelancer.
Over the years, I've done projects from almost all parts of the globe while I stayed put here in the Philippines. Thanks to the Internet and the website visitors who helped refer this website to my clients.
I love freelancing. BUT...
Good News and Bad News
Bad news first. I have already retired as a freelance programmer. I can't and won't accept projects anymore.
Now for the Good News. I still love playing around with Web Technologies and I promised to keep my self updated.
As the funny line puts it: "BASIC programmers never die. They just GO SUB and never RETURN."
So I'll be here sharing some techniques to make your Online presence a success.
"Make Your Online Presence A Success"
I think that part deserves to be emphasized.
- Do you envy others who are successfully running an online business?
- Are you determined to do anything to succeed on the Internet?
- Do you want to learn how to tap the Internet to build another source of income?
In other words, Do you want to Succeed On The Internet?
If "YES" is your answer to that question, then I'll be here to extend my helping hand.

You won't regret it. I will never share your email address to anybody.

Looking for content?
The bulk of this website is contained in the Articles Section. You can think of it as a blog -- and it is.
But, it is not just a blog about other people's blogs. Or paid rants about some random technical articles written somewhere in the Blogoshere. Far from it.
It is a written report (sort of revelation) of my actual experiences I have ever been to as an online entrepreneur... with some street philosophies scattered all throughout.
I think that's quite easy to understand. But there is more to that. I found out that a lot of business people using the Internet are using it the wrong way. Instead of money flowing to their direction, their technological direction is causing them their negative cashflow.
I'm not here to write about the CashFlow Quadrant and invite you to play the CashFlow Game. I'll live that up to Robert Kiyosaki and his cohorts, which by the way I highly recommend if you have nothing serious to do.
From now on, the contents of this website will be aligned along this very simple theme: Going techie without going broke.
That means, I am here offering my hand, guiding you on how to go about building your online business.
Would you take my hand, too?
The original Carlos On Web articles will still be there and in some occasions, I might diverge into those topics.
So thank you very much for taking the time to read this far. In a few days, the Articles section will be re-classified and a new article will be posted.
Meanwhile, please enjoy what I have 'round here:
- Business Websites -- Some tips and guide for owners of small business websites or those who want to build one.
- Freelance Programming -- This section is intended for Freelance Programmers in the Philippines just like me. I will be sharing my experiences as a freelance programmer, webmaster and blogger.
- Personal -- Non-technical stuff are posted here. You can think of this section as the Miscellaneous Items.
- PHP Tips -- Shared PHP Tips and work-arounds from actual programming experience.
- Web Programming -- You will be reading stuff like PHP, MySQL, AJAX and other topics related to Web Design and Development. Tips, work-arounds and some short tutorials will also be provided.
This list could go on as the site grows and more and more ideas sprout out of my head.
Thanks for dropping by. If you want to send me a message, please use the contact form.
