I have said it before and I will say it again. I love blogging because it keeps me sane. I also love the fact that as I keep myself sane, I get paid to blog.
Back in 2004, I caught a former colleague laughing her heart out in her cubicle. I got curious then she told me why she was laughing hard. She asked me, Have you tried blogging?. I was probably deaf or she really did not say it loud enough for me to hear because I heard her say PLUGGING. So I told her a story how me and my classmates when into this radio station to plug about a certain event at our school as part of our project. The she cleared to me that she was asking about BLOGGING. That is how I was introduced to this online diary.
During the first years, I only blog when I am happy, angry, excited or depressed. Most of the things I wrote were about my feelings and nothing else. I guess my teenage life was not that exciting. Hahaha! Then I got married and had my first born. At this point, I was slowly learning that writing about the things that interest me could also interest others, specially the experiences of a first-time mommy.
In 2008, I met fellow moms who became my teachers and friends. They taught me how I can make money in blogging. Up to now, they are still my friends and we earn together online.
I may not be earning much at this point but I do not worry because I enjoy blogging very much, not to mention I get paid at the comforts of my pajamas. 🙂
I am participating in a blogger campaign by Bucks2Blog and was compensated. However, the views and opinions are my own.
