You've read a lot of my blog post here in BenAlagnam.com and some of you thanked me for it and others will just say, NICE! great post Man!
But how do I get from doing this blog? Do I get anything from it?
Some people enjoys a lot posting messages or selfies in Facebook, because it's their thing. They love sharing staff with friends and even to public.
For me, It's O.K. to do that since they are happy after all.
Yes, I still share posts in my Facebook accounts but not for selfies or random messages. I really like and enjoy sharing information online and even offline. For me, these are the fun things to do.
When Did I Start Blogging?
When I discovered blogging, it was one afternoon while surfing at the net, I was really interested right away when I saw a personal website of a friend. He blogs about anything, from food to road trips with his wife and kids.
Back then, although I knew a bit of computers and softwares but I don't know how to set up blogs and I don't even know how to make a single post.
Until I created my first ever blog (http://greenthumbwit.blogspot.com), I kept this blog to remind me that it's my first post right there!
Why Am I Blogging?
The reason for me at that time was to practice my writing skills because I was getting ready for my FSW Canadian application and it requires an English test.
The way I wrote during that time was like writing a book. I'm not sure if it's still the impression of my readers at this moment. But things have improved quite a bit and I made more than 5 blog websites as of this year 2014.
On my second blog, where I got a lot of excitement, is that I started to add a Google Adsense account. This will earn me money while blogging. The only difficult thing to do here was the first approval from Google and the rest was easy. Everything can be linked to one account.
At the first 3 months of my blog. I earned my first $0.05 dollars and I was jumping with joy. My wife was surprised to see me doing that.
Yes, I know, it's a tini-mini small amount, but where can I find a dollar out of doing something that I love? I cannot see it under my couch or anywhere in the corner of my house.
This when I started to do more post and fueled me up. For about a year, I blogged 3 times a week, it accumulated to 200+ post per year. But, you see, I did not complain about doing it, because I love it!
Then I started BenAlagnam.com to record all my activities in Singapore. This is some sort of a diary but with a touch of sharing information to my readers about the country.
I really love blogging in Singapore because of the fast internet speed that can reach 40Mbps download and upload speed. WOW! The experience is just superb, it's like surfing at your own hard drives and linking videos while reviewing it has no pain at all.
In this blog where it started me to interact with my readers and advice them on something they want to know. It's a fun process for me, because I love it!
The good thing about this blogging is that you'll be surprised that Google will email you that they have sent a payment cheque for you.
When I first received my cheque, I was very excited and was steamed to do more blogging and sharing. It motivates me more to do and create more blogs.
I am paying a yearly life insurance in Philippines and it is also earning with dividends. The cheque which Google gave me helps me pay my Insurance. This is awesome, right!
Why Am I Sharing This?
I know what it feels like being a Foreign Worker in Singapore. The heartache of thinking about our families back in Philippines is indescribable. Thinking of them every minute will totally break my heart.
That is why I recommend you to take a step for blogging and who knows it might give you more freedom on your financials someday. I see great opportunities on this kind of activity.
Take advantage of the internet speed in Singapore and the power of your tablets and gadgets. Venture the world of blogging and come and join me.
Why waste on selfies and sharing posts that you don't earn. Share things that you love sharing and monetize your blog. It takes time but hey, I did it for over 5 years now and it seemed to be like only yesterday.
Now, I will continue to blog as long as my fingers can type and my eyes can see. It's because I'm earning while blogging and doing things that I love.
You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you're interested in blogging and earning so I can update my post here on how to setup and maintain your blog forever.
