    The Oak Garden Building | Short Story 2021

    As I gaze out my window at the sky while watching my children sleep,  the brisk winds remind me of a building that I once lived in,  wherein I saw, sensed, and were horrified,  an encounter with which I'm not comfortable speaking.  Fortunately, everything turned up okay. My name is Herman, but my friends called me Er, and the following is a story of what occurred to me 23 years ago. I have had a passion for writing since a kid. Now my guardian thinks I can go even farther. Consequently, they help me submit an authorship application and enrol in further linguistic, writing, and journalistic courses. Little did I realise that I'd be given a job to help me improve my abilities while simultaneously taking part-time writing courses to support my income. I was a young twenty-year-old at the time. Too young, yet inquisitive and willing to try new things. As a young author, the chance pushed me to go outside my comfort zone and acquire essential experience.  Pay attention to the sound

    A journey as a blogger, 5 things that I learned | seewriteandpost.com

    In 2014, I started to write a blog when I was still a student, but, at that time, I was not so serious about blogging, and I didn't know why people started to blog.

    So, after a year, I shut down my blog. 

    After five years had passed, I built up my blog again as a fresh start. 

    Little that I know, there's more than being only a blogger. It's not just about creating content but also helps you to make your own money.

    What exactly a blogger do? Apart from writing content, they also learn to be independent, do their own business, or use the blogging platform to grow their brand. But in time, a blogger can learn more than just putting an idea in words.

    Not all of the blogger knows about technology term, not all of them are having a degree in media or taking courses for an online business or anything related to it. That means you can start from zero to create a blog.

    If you want to learn something, you have to start a plan and do the strategy. 

    As a blogger, most of them are not knowing much about the things called website, domain, hosting, SEO, and more of it. But, they did research and learn how to make it. Some took about a months and more to understand how its work.

    Therefore, since I've been blogging pretty long enough, that doesn't mean I know everything because each day, we learn from other successful bloggers and upgrade our skills.

    So, what are the things that I learned from being a blogger?

    5 things to learned about the blogger:

    1)    Blogger takes time

    Often we heard that people make money through blogging. Indeed, it is true. However, you can make money with a blog if you do it the right way. Blogging for a day or week won't promise you a big amount of money coming into your bank.

    Don't expect to get the result if you just post about a blog, but it doesn't have any direction.

    Some people having a great idea on starting a blog, and they put too much effort into it, but they end up getting nothing. So instead, they wasted their time and their money. Sometimes, hard work doesn't give you the best result.

    Therefore, you must have a plan and strategy. Successful blogger does not happen in a day; you have to construct your plan for the six months ahead and so on. 

    2)    The social media

    Social media is a good platform to connect with friends and families. In addition, some use social media to gain more followers for business purposes or maybe just for fun. But, the key is, it is a popular platform use by everyone of a variety of age.

    The things about blogging are you can't keep it to yourself. There are many reasons why people choose the blogging platform apart from just a hobby. One of them, to grow their sales on any business types. So if you are doing business or using the blog to start making money online, you should consider using social media.

    The most popular social media for blogging is the Facebook group. You can type on the search bar about your blog niche; once you find a good and active group, asked to join, and you can start promoting your content to them.

    Other than that, you can use Pinterest. It is a huge platform where people search for an idea and question. Pinterest is just like Google; you type a keyword, they will show you, which in turn really helping to gain more traffic for your blog.

    Besides that, other social media platform could be Twitter, Whatsapp status and Instagram. But, we can't do everything at one time. So, choose one platform that gains more traffic and focus on that one social media.

    3)    Not depend on monetization

    Do you really want to earn money from a blog? You can! But having only one source of earning blog is not gonna get you on your target. Google Adsense or any other advertising is excellent if you have tonnes of follower on your blog. But, if you only have about 100 to 1,000 traffic per month, it's not enough.

    That's why you have to be creatively related to blogging. 

    There's a lot of ways you can make money using blogging. You can start writing an eBook and sell it to your reader, or you can apply for affiliate marketing and promoting their product. Choose one method that you can focus on and have the time to do it.

    4)   Don't make it as your full-time job

    You might disagree with me because other bloggers can make their blog a career. Indeed, you can have a lot of time with yourself and your family if you are a successful blogger.

    Yet, everything needed time. As hard as it sounds, you took about three months or even a year to grow your blog into a successful one. In the early month, you try to research and find a good blog niche. After that, you have to plan the journey by getting followers, gaining traffic, and blog post content. Then, you can proceed into applying for monetization and any other affiliate marketing and so on.

    It took time to grow the blog, especially as a beginner, and still searching on how to make this happen. Blogging can be overwhelming at first, but you learn from the mistake, and from there, you can make a better strategy from time to time.

    Dont quit your job because you want to start a blog. I repeat, don't do it! Make it part-time, then when you see the changes and your blog started to grow and secure your monthly income, you can make it your full-time job.

    5)    Consistency and being discipline

    The truth about blogging is you need to be consistent because Google likes fresh content. So if you only post about once a week, keep that consistency; post for another week at least one content.  Keep tracking your progress each week so you not procrastinating.

    Sometimes, a blogger post about twice a week. But, surely not everyone has the time. So, therefore, it should be okay to post once a week to show that you are active and keep with the algorithms.

    Being consistent is really hard because some bloggers (for example, mom bloggers) must have time for kids and the house. Therefore, it's essential to plan out your blog post to keep the consistency. And apart from that, nobody is going to push you except yourself.

    So, learn to be disciplined.

    Conclusion:

    Overall, being a blogger can be exhausted and took time to learn. But, it is worthy enough to consume the time for learning and constructing your blog. Don't give up if it doesn't show any result. Take time to see what's less and make another plan. You sure can be a successful blogger.

    How the conversation started 12 years ago | seewriteandpost.com

    There's a quote says by a famous person, "If you find someone you love in your life, then hang on to that love." - Princess Diana. Twelve years ago, I had a crush on one person. He played the guitar at the church. He was a best friend to my other friend, so I'm not really close to him. He was funny and sometimes quiet too. I was interested in his character. I was 16, and he was 18 years old at that time.  Well, you know what people say, love is blind for a kid, and I realise that I was still underage at that time. Having a relationship is not my kind of thing when I was still 16 years old. But still, having a crush is not a crime. So, I kept that feeling until I was at college. At the age of 18, I got an offer to school away from my hometown.  Because I kept my feeling for so long, sometimes when I return to my hometown for a semester break, I will give him a present. Looking back on that memories, it was funny, though. He was 20 at that time. Sure did, I tried to
