Aside from that I also learned the techie side of blogging. I am not really a tech geek but through research, I get to know few techie stuff in blogging.

Years ago, I used to visit and read blogs that I found interesting. I never had the guts to write and have my own blog at that time, as I don’t actually know where to start. When I get hooked with photography, that’s the time I thought of having a photo blog to showcase my work as a photography enthusiast. That time I was writing for my photos and shooting for my photo blog. Later, when I get pregnant with my first child, I decided to have my own personal / mommy blog, for me to archive the whole experience. From the time I got pregnant, delivered my baby, and now raising the little one, I am making a record of my daily encounter as a mom, a wife and a woman. And this was made possible through blogging. That’s how I started blogging. Blogging became a part of my day. I spent many hours sitting down in front of my laptop writing for my blogs. My sister noticed it and she started to get curious about blogging. She started asking me how to start a blog and keep bugging me to teach her. So, I shared my knowledge and

But not all companies are fortunate enough to afford the expensive fees for an advertisement. The good news is, with the arising competition in the advertising field, there are different forms of advertisement that are affordable these days.

Online jobs have widely spread now and I have read many testimonials of successful people in online business industry. I still have my work, but few months ago, I have ventured myself and tried embracing online business/jobs. And until now, I’m still struggling on getting my first payment. I have joined several PTC sites but I get easily bored of just clicking and waiting until it’s credited. I also tried google adsense but get frustrated when my account was blocked due to illegal clicks activities. I have lost morethan $20 of earning and was really frustrated. I’ve joined odesk but I find getting a job offer at odesk is just too hard. Now, I am trying again my luck with different websites who pays by doing simple and small task, as well as sites that pays by participating in discussions. I have also started to become a publisher at adgitize. So far, I am doing well with this site with some few earnings but have to reach the minimum payout yet. I found it better than PTC’s, and I am looking forward of getting my first payment soon. I found out that you need to manage your time, have patient
