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 platform in which I have two accounts; One is a link to online resellers and suppliers while the second one is a 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 a different blogging platform 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 in 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. Earn Money Online with Red. And the rest is history.
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;
Yes, it’s true. It was a lesson.“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.”
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. It is Red- who started it all, Russ for the inspiring words of advice, Vernz, who instantly returned comments, Liz, who offered knowledge and tips to learn online, Mommy 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.
