This is it!
When I wrote about my plans for this blog, I envisioned a more personal blog. I wanted something where I can share my thoughts, passions, daily drama, faith, knowledge and experiences – just like in a journal.
When I started blogging, it was all about having an online diary or journal of some sort but through the years, “blogging” has evolved into many things. Now, blogging can serve as a discussion or informational site, online brand advertising and even a source of livelihood. – YES, you can earn from blogging.
I will not lie, I earn from blogging. It’s not my bread and butter, it’s not even a stable source of income if you ask me but despite of being jobless after I got married more than 5 years ago, I was able to buy the things that I want (I particularly love techie gadgets), splurge on some stuff from time to time and still have savings in my bank account – all from blogging.
However, all those years of writing for advertisers has left me jaded. Who won’t be when all you have to think of every time you start writing is how to create an article where you need to input a certain word or phrase? I cannot complain since I like the idea that I earn from this hobby in the comfort of my home at my own sweet time (unless there is deadline to beat, of course) but I had lost passion in writing because of it.
After I finished doing our family blog’s redesign, I know I had to do something with this blog’s look, too. I wanted something that would inspire me to write – and this new minimalistic design reminds me of my first blog – a simple online journal.
I can finally say that I already know to which direction I want to go forward with this blog. Will you join me in my journey?
