Aside from wanting to be a doctor nung bata pa ako, gusto kong maging writer. Kaya nga I started to blog nung preparing kami magpakasal ng asawa ko. Blogging for me then was like my online diary where I post what I want, when I want.
Few years into married life, I became busy with work and our two kids. I post less frequently then eventually stopped blogging. Sayang nga, because I worked hard to create the little traffic my personal blog was getting then and I was actually receiving sponsored posts which I get paid as well. Kaya lang, family comes first.
Now, my kids are both going to school. Hindi na masyadong alagain, madaldal nga lang pareho, but finally I have the extra time to do something for myself – to write.
So, ano ang pangarap ko? Isa na doon ang magkaroon ng dot com. My previous blog was hosted by Blogger. For so many years, I maintained a blog there. Madali lang naman and it’s free. Sino ba naman ang ayaw ng libre, di ba?
Pero, pero, pero iba pa din kasi ang dating if you have your own website. You feel like you are a legit blogger if your site ends with .com. Isa pa, mapipilitan ka ng magpost ng magpost kasi nagbayad ka na! Lol!
I have so many plans for this blog which I know is not going to be easy and hindi magiging mabilis, but I will make sure that I get there. Konting sipag at tiyaga lang, maaabot din natin yan. Ang importante, I made the first step towards reaching my dream.
At ito na nga ang katuparan ng isa sa mga pangarap ko. Today, August 12, 2019, www.thisfilipinamom.com goes live!
I do hope to see more of you on this journey with me. Aja!
