My Life Cycle as a BLOGGER

So far things are good with my blogging experience. I started blogging not until the 18th of November of this year and it has become a part of my life cycle now. At first i didn't have enough knowledge what i was doing and what would be the next steps plus nobody was there to help me. It wasn't that difficult at all specially for those who read and study it carefully. I still consider myself a newbie and indeed i am, i need to learn more from you guys. I thank those people who posted articles about improving your blog, they were a great help for me.

Aside from blogging, i also put ads and experimented on it as others say they earned money from doing it. For more than two weeks now, i earned almost $100 out of 7 blogs which i try to maintain. I saw people in forums say they have hard time to even reach $20 for a month and i feel sorry for them, i wish i could help. My earning isn't that much as compared to others too. There are few techniques which i learned from my own experience in blogging and the most important is giving your blog extra effort. An effort to maintain it, change layouts if necessary, reposition them, visit those bloggers who visited your post, comment back to those who gave comments on your posting and make effort to visit the communities you joined from these social networkings and envite them to visit your blog and see what they think, if possible do it daily. Always build relationship with your common bloggers and viewers.

Every morning i check my blogs and i visit my social networking groups and invite people. I usually update my blogs at night and i reply to my viewers in the morning. It is really worth doing it. I would also spend time reading other people's blog and make comments. Then i submit my blog's URL to these websites that give free PING service. They help you promote your blog by submitting it to different search engines. By doing this it promotes your blog to searchers. I also learn it from other bloggers like me, thanks to them. In my case, i manage 7 blogs so i try to update my postings atleast once a month for each of my blog. I am happy that people are also interested on my postings and some became followers. These are the things i have learned so far and i wish i could be a better help to many. I will do my best to learn more so we could help each other and build a network of people who blogs and want to be successful on it.

Blogging Makes Sense

Blogging used to be just a word for me that I always hear from people. It is a word used which refers to weblog. Recently, this word started to make sense as I got interested in learning about it and how it works. It started when I opened my Friendster and read a testimonial about my friend who earns money online through blogging and testified about it. It captured my attention right away knowing that I really needed an extra incomebecause i just recently quit my job. It sounded good to me, just staying home and earning money. So I researched about it and kept absorbing what I learned until such time when I decided that i will give it a try. In fairness, it wasn’t bad at all for a newbie like me. I started blogging since then and signed up for Google Adsense and the first day I earned just probably a cent and was kind of disappointed but surprisingly, the next day I noticed that my earning went up to 14 dollars. I couldn’t believe it at all and I was motivated to create more blogs and started to network with people online.

I was earning through pay-per-click with Google Adsense which is an internet advertising model which helps bloggers and advertisers a lot to effectively attracts new prospects or clients for their business or products that they are catering. I realized as well that it requires extra patience and effort as blogging is an ongoing chronicle of different information. It has to be maintained with regular entries every so often. Entries that are informative and catchy. As I kept reading, I also encountered another kid who talked about earning money through blogging. She mentioned that she is being paid by writing blogs. I told myself, “Wow, this is more interesting!” Well there are just so many things that we can do to earn money and sometimes we don’t realize that it’s possible. Possible means that you are willing and ready to take any risks. Making money online has a lot of advantages for me. I can choose any time of the day to start working and I can do it however I like without a BIG BOSS telling me what to do. Somehow this type of work is gratifying for me specially that I could actually express myself with it, encourage people, give updates, create global network and business and gain profit. What else could isay more about it?

Well who can do blogs? Anyone can be considered a blogger whether it is just for personal or for business. I started without any idea what a blog was, what are the technical terms being used and how to earn from it. Now I should say I’m enjoying what I do and at the same time it is worth of my time. So what else you think you have to do? Get started and happy blogging!
