This coming 2008, I wonder how am I going to finance all the stuff I had planned for the whole year. First of all, since early this year my best friend (Malen) and I are planning to go to Hong Kong and aside from that, I really wanted to buy my own laptop. It’s not much but with all the responsibilities that I have from home, no wonder I’m thinking of ways to earn more to fulfill this dream. I’ve checked all my resources and what came up really surprised me, I’ve been blogging for almost four years now and it never came to me to use my blog for money. Yes! You’ve read it correctly; I decided to get paid for blogging.
This is how it started, before Christmas; we had a reunion with our college buddy Mimi. Malen and I went to her place, there at Altura, San Juan. Funning thing was, it’s like a reunion plus Blogging 101. Aside from talking about recent news and happenings, we also got to talk about being bloggers as well. They’re the same people who gave me an idea to get paid to blog.
I applied online to one of the best blog advertising site on the internet now. I’m amazed on the offers made by the site. You got to believe that my application was approved within 24 hours with no hassle at all. I even got three pending tasks to do. I just applied online last night and when I got up this morning, I checked my email, whoa-la! I got approved and could start posting right away. Smorty is a service that bonds great advertisers to bloggers (like us!). In simpler terms, they help us make money from our blogs and we still get to post about the things we love. Who could ask for more? With their help, I believe that the chances of fulfilling my plans is more brighter than before and who knows…maybe, it could be more.
