Blogging: It’s Really More Fun in the Philippines

I’ve been in the world of blogosphere for quite some time. And I’ve noticed that there’s a lot of emerging blogs owned by Filipinos. Unlike before when I had my first blog in 2004, few people are interested in blogging.

Being a web content writer for almost three years, I decided to reinvent myself as a blogger. My first love is writing articles and poems.

Last May 2011, I resumed my blogging habits after 7 years of hiatus thru Tumblr . I transferred some of my contents here in August

Opportunities came in when I started to be a full time blogger last November. My friends are wondering how I’m handling my time blogging at home.

Starting off my day by checking emails, checking previous posts and stats, replying messages on Twitter, and Facebook, reading online news and leaving messages regarding summary of my tasks to my blog partner on GTalk.

Handling several blogs, five Facebook pages, and two Twitter accounts are some of my daily tasks everyday. I’m online for almost 16 hours a day… 8 to 12 hours blogwhoring at my phone. In my spare time, I spend a lot of time doing some drafts and research.

Freebies and Prizes That I Got Since Last Year

GC’s from Caveman and Yeti–1st online contest that I won last October 2011 from When in Manila and Eat’s A Date.

I won This Means War Online Contest from B & L Magazine last month —Two movie tix and a shirt
I won Diary of a Wimpy Kid from Fickle Cattle last December.
Token from Uratex

            I was among the 18 contenders for Blogger Manila’s Blogger Apprentice

My precious Galaxy Y from an online contest of Samsung Mobile Philippines last October 2011.

Some people wondering how we earn money from blogging. From ads in our respectives blogs, and paid post assignments are our source in monetizing our blogs. As a blogger, I’m also attending events if I don’t have pending tasks for the day. Other people doesn’t know that we’re enjoying every moment covering events.

That’s why I love blogging…meeting a lot of people, learning new things whenever I’m attending events and earning from it.

Here’s a video that you’ll surely love and laugh your heart out as fellow bloggies FPJ aka Florencio Jusay Jr. of Manual To Lyf and other wacky, talented bloggers who attended an event recently.
