I never thought that blogging can be this fun and exciting. When I started blogging two years ago, my only motivation is to be able to write and document my little stories online. There were even times that I was in hiatus due to my pregnancy but when I started updating my blog again, it seems like I can no longer stop and became addicted to it.
Honestly, I don't earn that much from blogging but it gives me a different sense of fulfillment whenever I blog. I don't intend to make blogging my source of bread and butter but I value every single dollar that I get from blogging and from my other online work.
The earning is just a bonus but the one thing that I miss the most whenever I can not check up on my blogs or update them is the bonding and the exchange of conversation I usually have with my blogpals. It is such a good feeling to know that you have friends where you can get support anytime you are feeling blue. Mind you, it is not just emotional support but sometimes financial too. Remember Bella's first birthday? :)

Another perk that comes with blogging is the opportunity to receive free stuff from across the globe in exchange of a blog post. I have received two postal notices from the postman yesterday requiring me to pick up the packages from China and the USA respectively. Firmoo sent another sunglasses for review and Copy Kids also sent a DVD for Bella. Both are given for free provided that I will make a review about the items. Just the thought that somebody values my opinion is a big thing for me already.
I blog not primarily because of money or how much I am going to get or earn from what I am doing. What is more important for me is the fact that I could see myself being productive and doing the things that makes me happy....and that for me is what matters the most.
