Are You Blogging for Money?
Though this blog is named “Make Money Online” and was originally intended to earn me some extra money, somehow things changed but not totally,lol.. Honestly, some start with the notion that blogging can make you rich (oh maybe not super rich) and some blog for fun or to share their everyday life (including rants). I say I do it to earn, learn and help.
I started blogging for money. I’m a stay at home mom with valid and personal reasons for not being able to work again like I used to. I can go back to working as an employee but I have to sacrifice more important things. So, I gave blogging a shot and got hooked, big time!
2 years ago, I only knew how to surf. I was a complete newbie and not literate when it comes to the internet. Didn’t know as much as I know now. Less than a year ago, I put my hobby and love of reading books into good use. I was consumed by the vast knowledge I got from the net. And then thought of ways on how I can benefit while staying at home.
Before I created a blog solely for money making, I already joined a few paid to click sites. Earning but not as much. So, I decided I had to learn how to make a website so people can see what I am promoting. I guess for the lack of referrals, it was a necessity to make one, lol..
Many things happened during my 9 months of blogging for money. Earnings were better but I wasn’t quite fulfilled and happy with the rate things were going. When Blogger deleted my blogs, I took it as a sign to start anew.
This month, I was given another chance to do what I am good at..To impart what I have learned and help whenever I can. At least this way, I’m doing what I like best and let’s not forget, I can still earn on the side.
With this post, I am now changing my sub-title from “Adventures of a Stay at Home Mom” to what you see below the Main Title.
How about you? What are your reasons for blogging?
