To beautiful you - short stories 2020

“You look pretty in that dress” – Anonymous.I had a crush with one girl. I love to see her smile. I like how she dresses, how she tied her hair. She looks so cute. I always teased her look, teased how she was talking, but no one knew that I had the crush on her.Are you wondering how long I had known her? We know each other since we were a little kid. Our parents had a good relationship, for almost 20 years. She’s my best female friend in my hometown. She always came to help me when I was bullied. Since then, we’ve been a friend since we were 9 years old.Never had in my thought that I would have a crush with my best friend. But, that is possible, right?We’ve entered the same school since we still in primary school and up until now, we still entered the same college, same universities, but she was in her ballet classroom and I was more into social studies. Our faculties were apart, but when we had time, we would meet. As our relationship as a friend grow longer, and we became older, I r…

A journey as a blogger, 5 things that I learned

See, Write, and Post-it. Our eyes see and record every memory that goes on in life.

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 thought it just for kiddos that wanted to share their personal life with the world. Plus, I didn't know why people started to blog, what is the purpose? why is it to posts it to the internet, while you can write it down on your journal.

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

After five years had passed, I build up my blog again as a fresh starter, which is last year. 

Little that I know, there's more I learn as being a blogger, it's not just writing your personal point of view, or giving a tutorial and other informative articles, but also, you can make money from Blogging.

I am not blogger expertise, I'm also learning a lot from another successful blogger such as Neil Patel and other Malaysian bloggers. So, if I had written the wrong idea about blogging, please do comment on your thoughts on these posts.

Although I just started again to blogging, I've definitely learned a lot from being a blogger, so, here are the top 5 things that I learned as a blogger.

1)    I can make money

People do have so many reasons on why they started a blog. And, one of the famous reasons was, to started making money. A blog is not only an online journal but it also where people search for information on how-to-do, DIY, cooking channel, and more. 

So, I had the thoughts of making this blog to share my story-telling, a tutorial, my life routine, and more. I learned that starting a blog could improve your writing, how you make sentences, and created an idea. 

Basically, my blog niche is more to a personal blog. And I understand that it's really hard for people to discover my blog. I personally think that my ranking blog so weak in google search, and I recommended if you wanted to make money, and get as many viewers, try to make a popular niche and learn more about SEO.

2)    The power of media social

One of the ways for your blog to get discovered is by posted it on media social. Nowadays, media social had become a big interest for teenagers and all sorts of ages. Your blog will stay silent if you only posted it, then kept it to only yourself. 

For the first time, I started a blog, I'm afraid to promote my blog in my media social. Furthermore, I am not an influencer or anybody. That makes me even scared of posting something especially a website that I just started to build.  

But, it has been proved that linking your blog with your media social increases the visibility of your blog. If you don't want people to read your blog, then don't make a blog. Sometimes, you have to get out of your comfort zone and break through your fear if you want to be a somebody.

3)    The value of having a good relationship

Having a good circle surrounds you would probably help to get your blog noticed by someone. When I started my blogging, one thing that came out of my mind is by building your circle, getting along with other bloggers, comment on their posts, and having a good relationship with the blogger community.

Trust me, you can't make a blog where you and your only friends being the reader. You need more people and expand your circle if you wanted to be a serious blogger. How to make money if you keep your blog to only yourself and do not share it with anybody? It will be so hard. Our blog might sound ridiculous, but that's the reason why they have a comment section, for circling with other people and considered their thoughts.

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

This might sound silly. But, don't get confused by what I said in point number 4. You can make blogging as your full-time job if you already secure your blog. If you had tonnes of followers, and people are subscribing to your blog every day, and get paid 5,000 US dollars every month by Google Adsense or other affiliate marketing, then do it. You can be the CEO of your blog.

However, for a beginner like me, a fresh starter in blogger, don't put a blog as your full-time job. Don't expect that you will get a lot of payment from any advertising company when you just started a blog. Build it step by step, it took a journey for your blog to be rank on google and noticed by someone.

I started my blog as my second part-time income. Because I do know that I don't have too many followers, and I am doing this only for polishing my writing and of course just for a part-time. Until you can secure your blog and the future of it, then turn your blog as your full-time job. But, for now, as a beginner, you might take this slowly and don't get to rush.

5)    Positive and being discipline

I found that, in my real life, it's really hard to being consistent about what you are doing. When I started to blog, I always think that I don't have time to write a blog. But, the truth is, we all had a time of doing something, it just the way how we organize our plan.

In blogging, I learned that it's really important for being consistent. You don't want to be a blogger who posted every day for three months and disappeared for the next three months. Being consistent is the key, and consistency came from discipline. 

Blogging had taught me to spend my time well and help me to create my skills in organizing my time. And somehow, for a starter in blogging or even those who spent years in blogging, it won't promise you a large amount of money. 

It took discipline, hard work with great content and strategies. Being a blogger, you should be grateful for this free opportunity where you created something. Be positive and kept writing good content in your blog.
