Back in 2006, my intention to blog is to explore something new and just for fun. Since it is free like Blogspot and WordPress.com. Plus, it’s really cool when you can tell your friend or chicks to visit your blog at lankapo.com rite ?. I am quite popular at that time. 🙂

So when l heard and confirmed by my colleague that you can make money online using Adsense , Nuffnang (Malaysian Ad Network) and others ads network, my intention totally changed to money now. So I just write what other blogger already done. Things like “Increase Your Traffic”,”Improve Your SEO Ranking” or “Make Money Online” are too saturated in this blogsphere. That’s add my blog to million of Making Money Online blog and just a John Chow wannabe. How can I tell other what to do when I am still a newbie too just like them.
After reading How to Find Your Passion by Glen Allsopp from Pluginid.com , I was inspired. I never look blogging the same way again. I should find my passion instead. The author guide you to find your inner strength and what you suppose to write about rather than following others foot step. Make your own.
Recently, I only manage to update my blog once a week. Totally blank.I cannot think of something new on making money online, struggle to find the motivation to write and to come up with post ideas. Now I want to write all about my experience along the way on making money online, blogging tools and plugin that I want to share and anything that make me feel good by sharing it for benefit of others. Sharing and not teaching, remember that.
My experience when I shares about using Tune Card was totally worth it. I manage to earn money through Adsense unintentionally and get high SEO ranking for the keyword of Tune Money and Tune Card. My post on experience using Tune Card, a prepaid Visa card to cash out money from PayPal become popular since I was the first to blog about it.
FYI, It took 12 month just to get $ 2 through Adsense, but only 2 months to reach $100 when I post about tune card. See,when you post a unique content that benefit others, money will come after that.
Lesson Learned Here
So if you want to be popular and become authority in your niche, be unique and share your experience and knowledge that will benefit others. Not just writing and following what already being told. Your reader will be like “I have seen that before”, “hey, I already read that in ProBlogger” hehe.
When you are expert at certain thing, you will write like a river flow . Ideas will keep coming. Remember money will follow when you capture your reader intention.They will keep coming back to hear more from you. Just make sure you enjoy the excitement through blogging, because that is more important.
We can find a job,make loan or marry to a rich husband/wife to get money,but happiness is precious.

My first cheque finally arrived last Friday just after a few days announced new price of petrol. It’s quite a relieve since I need to work harder now to make money online in order to cover my petrol expenses.
Well after waiting for quite some time, lost in mail case and post ticket and exchange a few emails, finally I received my first cheque from Nuffnang.I would like to thanks Rob and Samantha for their cooperation and help to resolve and sort out my problems for getting the cheque.
