Why Blog?

Here is something to inspire fellow Filipinos, and blogger wannabe's out there. Why would someone like us blog? Let me give you a 5 reasons.

1. Blogging makes money.
Yes, blogging is proved to be profitable by millions of bloggers in the blogosphere. Lots of bloggers out there are making money, through online advertisements on their blogs. A typical blogger could earn as much as $150 to $5000 a month!, whew!! that is a LOT of money. Watch this video for additional info:

2. Blogging is easy.
Who say's blogging is hard work, here's a trivia: even a 13 year old can blog and earn money from it. You don't even need to be good at HTML just to blog, if you could use friendster, blogging would not be too hard for you.

3. Blogging is something you could do worthwhile.
Though its real painful to say this (-:, most of us Filipinos are just using the internet for the purpose of gaming and social networking. The logic here is that instead of doing something that we could enjoy and benefit us at the same time, we tend to stick with just the enjoy part. Actually, since I started blogging the other day, I find it very enjoyable and challenging, yet I know I could make money from it.

4. Blogging could be your medium of expression.
Through blogs, you could express your thoughts all over the world that you could not express personally, especially those 'shy types'. In the blogosphere they can interact, or even rule. Blogging could be a good way for us to nurture our communication skills.

5. Blogging doesn't take much of your time.
I'm gonna' give you three equations:
Time = Money
Blogging = Money
Blogging = Time!
Blogging takes time to do but the good news is, it only takes a portion of our precious, irreplaceable time. This means a lot of opportunities for us: blogging during breaks, blogging after school, blogging after work, etc. No more dull moments, every second is a chance to earn money, money$, and lots of money$$$.

What is a Blog?

According to wikipedia: Blog (contraction of the term 'Weblog') is a web site, usually maintained by an individual, with regular entries of commentary, descriptions of events, or other material such as graphics or video. Entries are commonly displayed in reverse-chronological order. "Blog" can also be used as a verb, meaning to maintain or add content to a blog.

To put it simple, a blog is a compilation of texts, graphics/ images or media arranged logically to provide sensible information. A long time ago blog was just thought of as an online diary - a journal of your personal thoughts. Now, blogging is a new way to post and share information throughout the world wide web.

In fact, here in the Philippines, the potential of earning money through blogging is realized. Blogging opens up more opportunities for us, waiting to be found.

Well that's it, welcome to my make money Blog.

Am I Too Late For Blogging?

After school, I headed to my room and cranked up my pc. I was really excited about this blog/ blogger thing, so I then surfed the web to learn more about this/ them. I read some blogs to view their first posts, trying to get an idea on how to start.

But instead of being inspired, I felt's because most of the blogs I visited were blogging for some time now - a year or two. Suddenly my goal seemed really really far , far away from all those bloggers. I can't help but to think of what I've been doing back while they were there blogging. I felt like I've been robbed of my precious time considering that I have what I needed from the start.

Am I too late for this? I never thought that this blogging phenomena dated a while back. Will I be able to keep up with THEM? Is there a chance for me to be recognized? - These are the questions popping out of my mind. Given these thoughts, I realized that I should never back down, why would I stop when I'm just about to start. All my efforts will never come to waste, I will go all out.
