What Am I Really Thinking When I Started Blogging

 All I want is to have an open diary. I just like to express everything I'm feeling and thinking to anyone who cares to read it. But, that changed when I saw an episode of Mel & Joey about blogging. The owner of YugaTech was featured there, and he talked about how to make money by just blogging.



When I started blogging, way way back 2009 or 2010 I never thought I'll be making money and working online. No. I didn't start with this blog. I had a silly and immature blog before which has an URL and title of my real name. As days passed by, I've learned that publishing your name online is somehow not that good. So, I deleted it after a year after. (Too late, eh?) I didn't aim for anything that time.


I owe everything to that blog. My online career started because of it. I only have a desktop computer before (my parents bought it for me) and now, I have a laptop that I bought myself and few gadgets too. Who would think that from silly, immature and diary-like blog would lead me into this?

To make the long story short, there's a guy who've read my blog and asked if I know something about HTML codes and I said yes, but not much. He again asked me if I'm willing to learn and undergo in a training. I didn't hesitate and said yes instantly. That's then! And now, I'm a database builder. Imagine how far I've go from just 2 years of working online? At first, I was just an HTML checker for all the company's website we had. I was just 16 then when I started. And, I thanked God for everything, especially for not letting me give up.

I'm not really blogging in this shot. I was just watching Youtube videos!
How much blog I got now? 4 blogs and 2 websites. I'm really worried nowadays because, I can't find enough time to update the other blogs and websites. Their rankings are going down already. I'm also worried that my blogpals and buddies would unfollow me because I haven't comment-back or visited their blogs too.

You guys, please do forgive me. I'm so having a lot of urgent projects to finish in my work.. The worst part of this is that I'm not having enough sleep!

How about you? What were you thinking when you start blogging? SHARE it to the world! <3 comments

wow that's amazing! you've got tallent hunnie, you're such a inteligent girl <3
I wish I could be like you, but I just do my blog to "waste some time", and that's true because I don't earn a thing with it, and I have few readers :/
On the other hand, I like to write, and that's why I keep it going on :D
