This is always the thing that describes me: create an account and leave it behind. Oh no, not the messy things! I was referring to creating my first blog platform – Live Journal. It was created as a very personal diary. It is alive but not updated. I just leave it – stagnant. 2nd is the multiply in which I have two accounts; One is a link of online resellers and suppliers while the second one is another personal diary. But then, I decided to delete the second and integrate some of the posts I’ve written there in blogger. So, I can focus only to one personal diary.
Writing in different blog platforms is my only means to let go all my emotions and unload burdens. I did not think of it as a way to earn; I did not think of it that one day, it’ll help me with the tool in my life.
The new journey began in Manila for the second time: I face it alone and it was all negative, though. Job applications turned negative results, money was draining in my pockets and I end up washing clothes of my boarding housemates to put food right into my tummy. One online friend told me about family’s support because I was desperate to have a job. I didn’t respond but smile sourly. I wish, there was a family support, but there is NONE.
My head has a lot of fearsome questions like what will I do, now that I can’t find work? How can I support myself? What will happen to me? Will I end up living in the streets? Ending in negative results to jobs had made me searched through the Internet. Although, I really give up hope and feel low. But, the WILL to survive remains.
I log on to a forum in which I am a member. It was the Cosmopolitan Forum. I found a thread, but I forgot the topic, sorry. A member commented about her as being an Online Income Guru. I even checked her profile and links. She discussed an online income. Her name is red a.k.a. redamethyst. Next is history… *smile.
My blog is not on Google page rank as I did not put an effort to create backlinks, yet. I created a lot of PTC accounts and some ended as scams. Still, go on creating accounts that earn but sometimes leave it and open it later if I remember it and have a chance. Then one day, a big blow happened. My only chance to earn big amount was disabled. Well, it was enough for me and I depended much on it. Adsense account was disabled. I stay away from blogging and thinking what really happened and why it happened. I posted an article about an emo week and one comment caught my attention. It was from Russ;
“They are a tough bunch. You are probably better off without them…. Don't give up on your internet friends because of those idiots. You have to stay strong.”Yes, it’s true. It was a lesson.
I may not earn a lot in the blogosphere; I can’t relate much on mommy blogs because I am not a mommy, myself. Yes, I am 37 and yet not a mommy, never had been, but that’s another story. What’s important is that I start to gain the internet (blogger) friends. I am very thankful, deep in my heart and wish them all the luck and blessings in the world. They are Red- who started it all, Russ for the inspiring words of advice, Vernz, who instantly returned comments, Liz, who offered knowledge and other tips to learn online , Levy - who had a big heart and gave me a chance to win her contest. :D and others do not mention thank you so much.
Blogging is fun! It helped me learn new things like fashions, contests, unity of a family (wish I have), advanced technology and blogging tips and tricks. I am looking forward to learning more and gained more friends online.
