PhilRice Run 4 Ur Rice Fun Run

Run 4 ur Rice, originally uploaded by ebarrun.

Another Sunday of fun run, this time the only catch is, I didn’t run again, I just took photos of the event and thanks to Wacky Ocampo for inviting me to help her in the documentation. Rain or shine as the true blood athletes must say, around a thousand runners participated in the fun run activity today at UPLB Baker Grounds to celebrate PhilRice’s 25th Anniversary. I came around __ am not knowing if the rain would stop, hoping to take photos with a brighter background. Good thing the sky was cleared just before the program started. It was very relieving to see a lot of familiar faces as participants from Letran Calamba were of a large number; around 290 runners were instructors and the rest were
mostly students.

Run 4 ur Rice


The activity was part of the Rice Awareness Month wherein runners were asked to pledge their support in saving and giving importance to rice as Filipinos’ main food staple. This, I think, apart from the cool drizzle rain effect to running, added “spice” to the activity’s commitment to rice awareness advocacy. In addition to that, what makes the run more fun and attractive was the fact that the runners would be running alongside rice fields, which makes it closer to nature (not like the runs conducted in Manila) and actually have the “feel” of how rice is meticulously farmed.

The Run 4 Ur Rice Fun Run is just one of the many runs being conducted in the Philippines nowadays. But what makes it different is that the theme is actually brought nearer to a much greener way.

Self-Hosted WordPress API Endpoint Problem In Flickr

Blogging photos directly from Flickr is posibble and it also support self-hosted wordpress blog. It took some time to figure out “API Endpoint Problem” following the steps in the Help Section of Flickr. The Flickr forum post or topics about the API has expired. Here’s a step by step guide to get it done.

WordPress Blog
In your WordPress dashboard under Settings > Writing > Remote Publishing be sure to check both Atom Publishing Protocol and XML-RPC. Then, in your settings on Flickr for that blog, enter your WordPress API Endpoint; for example:

Flickr Account
In your Flickr Account> Sharing & Extending > Your Blogs and Edit. Then Add your Blog, choose WordPress Blog from the dropdown menu. Here’s the crucial part of the this setup. To get WordPress API Endpoint go to your wordpress blog and view the source of your homepage by right clicking and copy the whole link with xmlrpc.php extension . API Endpoint would differ if you have your blogs installed in a subdomain or sub directory. Enter your username and password this will confirm if you own that blog then hit next. Confirm your details and you can tick the check box if you want Flickr to store your password. I find it annoying everytime it ask me for my blog password.

That’s it! all done you can now choose your posting template. If you know a little bit of HTML/CSS you can customize it like borders or fonts of the caption. Now make a test post.
