My Blogging Experience in a Nutshell

Blogging becomes therapeutic for me when I quit my job in 2007. Maintaining an online diary has helped me cope with stressful living.

Through blogging, I meet new online friends who are moms like me. They were instrumental in introducing me to the idea that I can earn from blogging at the comfort of my home.

I’ve registered in several blogging networks and gladly work with them for years. Although many of these companies are no longer operating, I’m thankful to them for all the opportunities they’ve given me.

For 11 years, blogging has helped me pay our bills; buy groceries; pay for monthly tuition of my young kids; bought personal stuff for each member of the family, and even helped us pay part of my kids’ hospital bills (in 2011).

Blogging and earning from it may no longer be as lucrative back in the days but, I’m still not planning to retire because I’m still supporting my son to pay for his college education. I will recommend to young aspiring bloggers to try, grow, and thrive from blogging.

International Women’s Day 2021

Happy International Women’s Day!

Cheers to the working women; mommies at home, mommy blogger friends, mommies in the corporate world; and single ladies (including my young adult daughter) out there!

I don’t have many pictures to share to commemorate the occasion. I’m happy to share a few that I was able to save from my computer. I actually retrieved them from my blog’s FB page.

These pictures were taken during the Villar Foundation-Green Enterprises Tour in Las Piñas in 2012. It’s one of the coverages I’ve done as a blogger.

Kudos to these women for thriving. Despite the difficulty of their jobs, they are proud to earn for their loved ones.

Basket weaving. She weaved the dry water hyacinths stalks to create this basket.

Water hyacinth was once tagged as aquatic pests as it clogs the river and serves as the breeding ground for dengue mosquitoes, but for the men and women of Las Piñas, water hyacinth is a source of income. Las Piñas has four weaving centers to date.

Twining coconut fiber. Finished coco nets are used for slope protection and control soil erosion.

Fiber can also be used as mattress filler and briquette holder for plants. Coco nets are being used by Las Piñas City and private developers.

Handloom weaving. Fine blankets are distributed as part of relief goods during natural disasters.

The handloom weaving began several years ago in Las Piñas is helping at least 20 families. There are 17 machines found in 5 barangays that produce 800 blankets a month. Each worker earns P65 per finished blanket. (I haven’t had an update on this yet. I hope the program still employs more women.)

These women believed in the virtue of diligence and hard work. They were happy to share that anyone can earn a decent living from segregated and recycled waste materials.

Some unforgettable stories I posted in my other blog, www.penname30.com

Meanwhile, this is me, when I was working as a reporter for People’s Tonight. I was interviewing a young girl for my story. I had good memories of doing my job to the best of my abilities. Happy International Women’s Day to all!

Thankful for the Online Source of Income

I wrote about my source of passive income ten years ago. It was the time when most mom bloggers that I knew earn from their blogs. Those were the good old days of blogging.

I’m a stay-at-home parent since 2009. The passive income I’m getting from blogging, sponsored posts, and link ads have helped me in several ways such as, buying essential items at home, paying utility bills, and even contribute to my kids’ tuition.

I was and still am thankful for all the blessings that come my way through my blogs. This year will be my ninth or 10th year in the blogging business. I’m still maintaining several blogs and am still on the lookout for new opportunities.
