I have blogged for four years!

It is a good feeling to look back on what I have learnt from four years of blogging.

When I started a blog back in 2004 on October 23rd, it never occurred to me that I can make money blogging. I have not heard of Adsense and I think I only put up Adsense after several months after I started blogging.

I found the post dated May 11th 2005 on my decision to put Adsense or not. By July 8th, 2005, I earned my first USD100 through Adsense. Mind you, exchange rate was pegged at RM3.80 per one USD.

Well, four years later, I have done well. Now, Adsense is not my only blog income. I have so many other ways to monetize my blogs and I have so many blogs, I cannot even remember them. So, congratulation to myself for having survived four years of blogging and making a lot of money through blogging. I am rather proud because I never set out to make money in the first place and I also never work very hard to achieve it. It just falls into place, at my own space. Thank God for that part. I was never in need. Just like Psalm 23, He lead me to greenbacks…. :P

The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,

he restores my soul.
He guides me in paths of righteousness
for his name’s sake.

Maybe if there is one good advice on how to keep blogging and make money, it is to depend on God all the time for Him to guide us. I bet many probloggers won’t tell you this. Yes, to God be the glory.

    Congrats! Have you ever shared your breakdown of income? Adsense compared to other streams? I’m always frustrated by adsense alone.
    Again congrats and keep the posts coming!

    Well done, 4 years is a long time – some make money bloggers struggle with adsense so you have done really well.

    Well said Lilian. I gotta congrats you for a real good job done. I am sure many bloggers out there won’t be making their first USD100 in their first 7-8 months of blogging. :)
