My 11 Years of Blogging

My 11 Years of Blogging

I have been blogging for almost 11 years. Yes, you read it right. Eleven years of blogging experience and I must say it was not easy. There were days I don't feel like writing anything. There were days I wanted to give up and just delete this blog. But at the end of the day, I still choose to continue sharing a part of my life.

With that let me just share the highlights of my 11 years of blogging experience.

Creating Blog

In 2009, I created a blog under the free platform, My intention was just to have an online journal, an outlet, where I can share my love for arts, crocheting, do it yourself stuff and the likes. But it was only in 2010 that I finally became active in blogging.

In 2012, I finally decided to buy my own domain. When I started connecting with fellow bloggers that time, I learned that having your own domain means more blogging opportunities. So I took the risk of buying my domain and that's

Changing Blog Niche

Like what I have said, I started actively blogging in 2010 when my first son was born. That year also, I changed blog niche from crafting to parenting. This blog has been my online journal as I share my experiences as a first time/working mom. But lately, I also post topics on home and living, home improvement, saving money tips and health tips.

Accepting Product Reviews

When I had my first born, I also started accepting product reviews of baby products and the likes. Brands will contact me and send products in exchange of blog posts. I also got a chance to attend blog events whenever time permits.

Now, the trend is joining campaigns as an influencer. Brands are launching thir products through influencers and sending samples or monetary equivalent in exchange of product reviews. You use the product, give your honest review and got paid for it.

However, brands prefer social media post or video share via Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. I see fewer blog review posts now that's why more bloggers shifted to be social media influencers.

Earning Money through Blogging

Honestly, I never thought I can earn money through blogging. I just want an online journal and that's it. But when brands started to contact me and also receive blog advertisement, I realize there's money in blogging.

Advertisement like Adsense ads, accepting paid post and link placement are just few ways to earn money through blogging. I also accepts writing jobs.

Content creatorship become one of fastest-growing type of business in the online world. Brands are partnering with creators, bloggers or vloggers to promote their brands. Social media platforms like Facebook and YouTube are getting monetized. As an influencer and creator, we must explore what are the right tools that can help us reach our full business potential.

Even though the hype is in social media content, I still believe blogging is here to stay. But as a creator, we must know how to go with the flow. Find ways to engage in social media platforms and reach more people. There are so much possibilities and ways to earn through blogging.

Let me know if you have questions. I am still not an expert but still you write it down your questions 👇
