Happy Birthday to Sumukeyes.Blogspot.Com!!!

Haha! Hehe!
Time flies so fast.. fuh.

My very first blog was a Friendster blog, a blog that I created in April 2007 when I was just out of work. What else to do when you are out of job hehe.. At that time my blog was quite private and intended only for my friends to have my update.

Later on, I heard about monetizing your blog, and I remembered discussing excitedly with lyvnana about the prospect of earning side income from doing a simple thing like blogging.

Hehe.. after a couple of months thinking about it, I go ahead and registered with Blogger. My first post was exactly a year ago, and it started about Jake. I don't want my readers to think that the blog is about dogs though, so I talked sparingly about my beloved Jake, who have grown up so much and very naughty!

Few months into blogging, I realized that earning through blog is not really a reality, if you consider an average of RM0.02.per year day is an earning. Then again, from trial and error and brainstorming, I finally made a decision to become Nuffnang Glitterati members, and within two weeks (I mean since 2 weeks ago!), my earning doubled! Wohoo! Thanks to Nuffnang new metered system, I get so see more money. And that is why I decided to use my first cheque (in advance) to be spend on a blog make-over!

What do you think?

Hehehe...

Earning via Adsense is kind of difficult, but Nuffnangs does pay handsomely.

Anyway, congrats on your 1 year blogging!
