Reviving The Blog

Published by under Blogging

This blog is in a semi retired mode. There were times that I feel like reviving it, but after I logged in, I don’t have the mojo to blog. I no longer know what to blog about and wonder if there’s anyone still read blogs since FB is so common now. I can control who can read my updates. I don’t know what’s the purpose to share what we are doing with the public, with people that I don’t know. The urge of reviving the blogs came few months back when I found out that one can still earn some decent pocket money through blogging. I was invited to an event and was paid fairly well. That is when I started thinking if I started maintaining this blog again, be active in instagram and tweeter, perhaps i could even earn more. The thoughts keep playing in my mind but I have never really taken action, spending most my time online surfing and fb-ing instead of productive work like re-learning about SEO and such. Today a long time blog friend brought up the topic on Adsense again. It’s like sparking up everyone’s interest to start blogging again.

She was mentioning “blogs are like properties. Maintain a bit (write a bit la)and they pay you rental each month. Jaga your tenants (the keywords) and sayang (backlinks) them.”

Ok, time to do some serious learning to learn all about SEO, keywords and backlinks again.

A Dead Blog

Published by under Blogging

This blog is pretty much dead. I have lost my mojo to blog. Finding tedious to download photos from camera and phone, watermark it, upload it to photobucket and writing a blog post. I don’t feel as comfortable as before exposing what we have been doing and done, whereby in FB i can control who sees my posting and i don’t have to watermark it and can upload it straight from my phone for a quick short post on my wall.

The hub who has my blog on his feed reader asked why I have not been blogging at all. Isn’t there any more advertisement to write and claims that I have been spending way too much time on FB than I should on my blog.

Should I or should I not revived my blog?

Long Hiatus

Published by under Blogging

Oh dear… I didn’t realize that my last posting was on the 6th June. It has been almost two months I haven’t logged into this blog and do any updating. No wonder the hubs was asking me why I haven’t been updating the blog.

Haven’t really got the time to sit in front of the pc. I always access the internet through iphone. It’s a tad inconvenient to blog through phone though it’s not impossible. Another reason is that I update more on FB now to a close group of friends instead of exposing to the world what we have been up to and going to do.

Blog Vs FB

Published by under Blogging

Just received a mail in my mailbox reminding me that it’s time to renew my domain. Come to think of it, I have been blogging near to 7 years already. I don’t know if I shall call myself a blogger anymore. From the then blogaholic to now who hardly blog. Yea..hardly blog! It used to be 10 posts a day and now is one post in weeks. Such a contrast. I am spending more time on fb. I have frequent status update. It’s easier to update in FB via my smartphone as I hardly have time to sit down in front of the pc anymore. Blogging through phone is a little tedious which I tried to avoid.

Statistic and blog readership doesn’t seem to bother me much anymore. I don’t check if there is any visitor to my blog nor do I care if there’s any comment (I have just realize I haven’t responded to my blog comments (the very spare and few) for a very long time). I don’t go around broadcasting my blog, not even in my own FB after I have posted a new post. Neither do I share the link of my new post in my FB fanpage. The only reason that I come back to blog is probably because I can still earn a meager pocket money from it. Definitely not as lucrative as before.

There are times that I am in a tug of war, wondering if I shall post up personal post like before, journal of my children where I can refer back to years later ( I have not jotted much down since a very long time ago. Precious chatters, precious developments, experiences, happenings and achievements, will I still be able to recall the details by looking at the photos after many years if I don’t blog about them? Even if I shared it on fb, there are very brief and not about everything). As when I share my status update in FB, I am only revealing it to a handful of people. I am very careful with adding friends and I keep it close and small as possible. Activities that I have done that is more educational inclined, I will share it at my FB fanpage. Which seems much easier and less time consuming than blogging. I have a dozen of draft posts all half way composed, due to the lack of time, and always in need by the children and now I have lost the mojo to complete and post them up. These two days have been an exception whereby I stayed up late to blog, as it is a very rare occasion that the goddess of fortune is taking care of me to provide me some pocket money to spent on Xmas and i need to meet the deadlines. :D

As for blog hopping, I don’t spend much time on my blog feed anymore. On days when I log into my blog feed, I have accumulated so many feeds, I just mark everything as read. I wonder if any of my blogging kakis still have my blog in their feed.

To Blog Or Not

Published by under Blogging

When I just started blogging for money, I will blog about anything, including topics on gamble (perhaps that’s the reason my blog lost it PR) , one thing  I don’t blog about is adult related topics.

Lately I am more selective. I don’t blog about gambling sites anymore . Even topics related to male enhancement supplements, the side effects of extenze also I am very reluctant to write about, as it is not related to my blog niche. My blog income has definitely dwindle compared to when I just started.

Working Hard To Earn Pocket Money

Published by under Blogging

Being a SAHM and owning a blog, I try to savage any opportunity left online to earn some meager pocket money.  Four years back , when online advertisement just started blooming, business was good, very good. By just staying home, writing reviews, I can easily earn almost as much as when I was working in the office. I slowed down on writing since the birth of JL and after that, the market seems to have gone downhill. For the longest time I didn’t manage to get a PR for my blog too, that itself had limited how much I manage to earn.

So far, there’s only two advertisers left which I still regularly received assignments. It is not bringing me big money , but I am still hoping (since it is USD converting to RM) I can save enough to buy a bullion. However, I am checking on my payment record, it seems that I have not been paid on time by one of them, though they have approved what I have written? Am I writing for nothing?

Give Up

Published by under Blogging

Feeling hungry and sleepy..I am giving up.

My brain just ain’t working tonight…can’t even churn out a simple 60 words post. I just need four more 60 words posts, but my brain is so dead, I can’t think of anything to write with the given key words.

Off to bed I am going!!
