Disappointed. But still hopeful I presume.
It is true that I could never quite sit still. For the last four or five days I have joined the ranks of the unemployed. Or maybe I shouldn’t say that because I am affiliated with a freelancing company. Still, since the company job orders arrive only during the weekends, I pretty have nothing to do for the rest of the week days. Judging by the state of my farm in Farmville though one would think I am pretty busy. Well, yes and no.
No. I am not busy with any job or any project mandated by any company. I am not busy with any work as of the moment.
Yes. I am busy none the less. Busy finding ways to occupy my time. Do something productive. Something that could earn me something in the long run.
I am currently on the process of creating blogs (plural) in Blogger. Knowing that this blog site offers more customization of sites as well as opportunities to earn from AdSense ads or Pay Per Post opportunities, I ventured to create several informative sites using Blogger. The sites are set-up. Their domains mapped out. Their looks customized – thanks to hundreds of free templates from Blogger (otherwise it would take me eons doing my own custom CSS). Then again there are features of WordPress I sorely miss. Like the ease of adding pages which I don’t know if it is possible with Blogger and even the ease of using the Dashboard and available features.
Yet push on I must. I must keep on exploring, patiently building these sites. Why? For one, I want to really earn from them but more than that I know I need to get some third person, informative and factual sort of writing done. Writing that is not opinionated but more feature-article like. And what better way to start writing well-researched articles than by starting with the topics I know best of. Besides, on my recent forays into the internet, I learned that most companies asks for sample articles that are not of the the first person voice and are not based on opinions. Since this blog has mostly focused on my opinions on a plethora of matters, and rightly so for it is a personal blog, I need to create outlets where I can practice writing feature articles.
Then again, who is on a rush? I am determined to enjoy as well as learn and earn in this new career phase I have entered.
