We have Readers!
I’m pretty convinced now that there are at least 40 people from all around the world reading my entries on this blog. It’s not something to celebrate but I’m really happy that there are people who actually cares about what I do. Since February 21, I’ve seen a gradual increase of visit on this website (see image below). Mostly are from the US. I hope they won’t notice my grammar lol.
I want to thank these people for three things. One, thank you for visiting this blog. I know most of the contents that I publish are not really helpful to you since they are very personal entries. Two, if you’re reading my entries, thank you for spending your precious time on my post. Lastly, thank you for not spamming this site and not trying to breach the security features we’d set. I seldom receive any security alert and lockout notice (which is really a time saver).
If you’re reading this, say “Hi!” in the comment box.
I’m very thankful for many things. There are a lot of reasons to celebrate. I notice that I’m starting to regain the same level of mindfulness that I used to have. I’m becoming more conscious on how I spend time and find myself sticking to task that I need to accomplish in a day. I’m really happy that I’m regaining self-confidence on what I do. I’m starting to celebrate life again and see sunrises as adventures to conquer and sunsets as triumphs to celebrate.
One of the reasons why I decided not to commit to any full-time corporate job is because of that feeling of being choked in a day-to-day basis by people who don’t really care about you as long as you do your job. I know, that’s how it really works. I thought I was really doing great in freelancing until I became greedy of projects and drove myself to exhaustion to reach a Php. 50,000 monthly earning target. Yes, I’d met the target for two months but it cost me a lot of things. Some are painful to remember. Eventually, 50k target became nothing but physical exhaustion, daily moodiness and irritation, sloppy work, lots of tension and stress, and failure. After a few months, almost everything in my freelancing career started to collapse. I did not care to recover after four months. It was tough but here I am! I understand that I cannot let myself wallow in desperation. I have to remember the things that really matter to me. I have to remember because it was so painful that I almost forgot everything. Adventures of a Freelance Yuppy has helped me to regain my life. This blog is who I am. Although, I have other co-authors here (who are seldom active), AoaFY is a very personal project to me. The title itself resonates a lot with my ideals. And yes after months of hiatus, I’m feeling myself alive again. : ‘) The 100 Days challenge and FB writing challenge have brought me back to life. I am Mon again (and you should expect crazy stuff in the future lol) Thank You!
March 1: What I’ve Done
March 1 was not as productive as the previous days. However, there is one good news to celebrate. I’ve closed a deal to one direct advertiser on one of my blogs : D Sweet! Isn’t it? The screenshot below shows what I’d done on March 1:
P.S. If you’re planning to start your own 100 Days Challenge, visit G+ community if you need some daily pep talk ;)
