Blogging bought me some toys

where the magic happens :mrgreen:

Blogging has been real good for me. It started out as a creative outlet way back when, then I met and got to know other bloggers, some of whom have become real life friends. And as mentioned in my latest podcast, blog advertising has also given me a nice little side income.

And this is the latest toy that I’ve bought with that side income: an LG 20″ widescreen monitor, $299. This is on top of the camera I bought in May for $399 – a Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ7.

The ironic thing is, if I wasn’t a blogger I could have made do with my older camera, and if I wasn’t spending so much time in front of the computer, I would not have been tempted to upgrade the monitor.

Oh well, never mind. I’m now working towards the funds for my end of year holiday. πŸ™‚

    sourrain: no problem – email me!

    10/3: it takes time man. It was at least 5/6 months before it started to trickle in. but some are quicker than others, it all depends on the niche of your writing.

    blur ting: yeah I’d say #1 benefit is meeting ppl, and #2 is the side-income.

    Great that you can write about things you love and get toys on the side.

    Methinks you need a new keyboard though! The one in the pics looks like it came from 1995 πŸ˜€

    Andy: haha you would be correct! But it’s a Honeywell – even if it’s that old, it’s still very comfortable to use. But yeah, now it doesn’t match my new monitor.
