Blogging Me

Tagged by Chikai, thanks sis! I was actually writing down a draft (yup, on paper!!!) while sitting in a meeting a while ago. Hehe.

1. How long have you been blogging?

More than three years. I started blogging in April of 2004 at Xanga without knowing what I was doing! Hehe. Brother said it's an online journal as well as a network building site like Friendster. Didn't know it was called "blogging" :) This blog, on the other hand, originally started as a photo-blog in October 2004. When I got tired of X because of it's limitations (had to pay for premium account), I created another blogspot site until in August2006 I made this blog my all-around blog coz I realized I can't maintain two anymore. Oh, and there's another blog I created as a wedding blog and I plan to revive it ;) In June of this year, I won a domain name and webhosting from Amor, and that became my (un)Creative Playground. :)

2. What inspired you to start a blog and who are your mentors?
I just thought I needed a medium to "showcase" my writing skills...or lack thereof. Hahaha. Kidding aside, I thought blogging is a perfect way to express my ideas and feelings and share just about anything. I was literally clueless and didn't what I was doing. Hubby's friends, DEP and MEG taught me some basic codes and I also learned by searching tutorials online ;)

3. Are you trying to make money online, or just doing it for fun?
Used to do it just for fun and basically to just note memories. But I recently started blogging for money, so I don't have to ask hubby my "extra" expenses :)

4. Tell me 3 things you LOVE about being online.
> I'm amazed by how much I learn everyday while online.
> Easy correspondence with my sister, BIL and of course darling J :)
> I met MY FOREVER online hihi...

5. Tell me 3 things you STRUGGLE within the online world.
> Keeping myself away from it when I need to.
> Spam! But I don't get that much.
> Scammers! Not that I've been a victim of one but I'm weary all the time. I guess it's the paranoia within, hehe.

Dunno who to tag anymore, I've seen this around. If you haven't done this yet, share!!!! :)
