To Monetize or Not?

I've been toying with the idea of monetizing my blog by writing paid posts, just like other bloggers. They say, if you are diligent, you can earn substantial income from writing sponsored posts. But one thing is preventing me from doing so...I'm a bit hesitant to mix paid posts with my regular posts. Silly isn't it? I mean everyone is doing it and here I am, hesitating for some wierd silly reason.

Tell me, what do you think of blogs with paid posts?

How I've Been?

Life is Good!

I'm defintely fine. I just thought of taking a break because to tell you frankly, I had this feeling of not wanting to blog anymore during the past few weeks. If you notice my last post was July 4th, almost two months ago. That post was actually a description for my Birthday Photo Album which got longer so I decided to make it a blog entry. My June posts were mostly for Litratong Pinoy. You see, I haven't really written personal posts lately.

I was also feeling senti (short for sentimental) back in April and May. I don't know how it happened. One day, I just woke up longing to go home. I told my husband I am not going to join him in the US (we thought he is going to US) - I just wanted to go home. Our original plan is to skip Philippines this year so we can visit other countries but as they say, there's no place like home. Without another thought, I booked tickets and spent two weeks with my family. I did not announce this vacay to my friends because I really wanted to spend time with my family. If any of my friends is reading this, SORRY guys! Next year is going to be a regular one-month vacation and I promise to see you all of you.

Besides my short vacation, there's nothing much to blog about. It's so hot and humid here in Doha - we don't go out much. Ramadan is also about to begin around 1st of September so the next four of weeks is going to be dull and everything will be in a slow and lazy mood. Good thing is we are only required to work 6 hours per day during Ramadan. Hopefully the Ramadan season will be an opportunity to get back to regular blogging.

How about you, how have you been lately? Are there times you wanted to stop your regular work/routine and just chill out?

I'm still here...


Well, I'm still here - just quiet. I've been experiencing blog withdrawal during the past weeks. I think I'm slowly overcoming it. I hope to start writing posts soon.

To those who are asking, how I've been - don't worry, I am very much fine. Thanks for asking.

To those who left messages and comments, Thank you so much. I apologize if I am not able to respond.
