Sort of. Kind of.
I have introduced paid blogging to some of my officemates/online/forum friends and most of them are interested of what I do. First, it was Arlene, my long time online buddy (read : 7 years but unfortunately, we have not met in person yet) who eventually bought her own domain. Last on the list was my office mate who recently left the company to focus more on their family business and new born son who is just my youngest’s age.
When I accepted the offer and paid a visit to our office, he was still there and approached me about how to start off with blogging. He joked “Magreresign na ako ma’am (he calls all the ladies in the organization ma’am, it has nothing to do with the organization levelling haha!), gayahin na lang kita magbablog na lang ako at magiging full time daddy“. I really thought he was not serious about it when he said that. Few days later, he emailed me about the same thing. Gave him the useful links that he could visit and read on. A week after, he messaged me on Skype telling me he’s ready. Right at that moment, we purchased a domain but it took us a while thinking of a good and relevant domain name for him. Timingly, Mommy Rubz was having an Earth Day Blog Hosting Promo and luckily got the last slot for that. I, personally, would like to thank Mommy Rubz for giving me a couple of days to settle the $15 for purchasing my colleague’s domain and for setting it up right at that moment.
So there…. that clearly explains my post title haha!
