Blogging, Travelling and Working Update

I have been busy recently and didn’t have much time for traveling or blogging. I’m a full-time student who supports herself working a part time. My recent gig is writing tests. Writing these practice tests for students is relatively easy but answering questions people post as feedback is hard work, I recently asked to remove comments on the tests because people are asking totally simple questions.

I like this gig a lot, but it takes so much time to answer the question when you think your job is all done. So I’m thinking about earning money with a blog. Will it work? Let’s start from the beginning.

What does Blogging mean? Most of the people would say that is you have a website, you write whatever you want (legally, please), usually about your daily personal stuff and then publish them on the website. Now the website is called your blog, and you are blogging and called a blogger. Some kinds of online diaries? Well, that’s true and also a reason why they usually don’t make money with their blogs. (I used to see blogs that way too!)

 

So if you combine blog, travel and make money, you will have: you have a blog, you write what you like and useful to people, then you publish them. That is making money by blogging. (We can talk a lot about this topic)

But you might ask: why I should choose to blog? Is Blog a good start for an online career?

Let’s see some pros and cons:

Advantages:

1.Freely express your ideas: what can be better than talking about things you like and earn money from that.

2.Get more friends: absolutely. If people don’t like you and your blog…. Ok, you still have your family and friends to read your posts.

A Guide through the Historic Places in Washington, DC

5641854967 fb5dc3fb50 A Guide through the Historic Places in Washington, DC
Washington DC has gone through a complex transition over the ages and currently has numerous historical places to behold. From its humble beginnings as a rural area with no development to its initial blueprint as the nation’s capital, to its expansion in size and growth in infrastructure at the onset of the 20th century, to its current place as an economic, political and cultural center, Washington DC is perhaps the most historically significant city in America.

Traveling in Australia: Gearing Up for your Next Big Vacation Down Under


One of the top travel destinations for people around the world is the continent – and country – of Australia and the nearby Pacific Islands. In fact, tourism in Australia is a booming industry that brings $35 billion dollars to the Australian market each year. Australia boasts a variety of activities and attractions available for tourists to engage in, and the wildlife and diversity in environment makes Australia an exciting and exotic place to visit. Before you travel to this exciting location, however, it is important to do a bit of preparation so that differences, potential dangers, and unexpected challenges don’t slow you down while you’re on vacation.

Culture and Customs: Preparing to Engage with Australian Culture

Plenty of information is available from Australia’s tourism department regarding the unique history of the country of Australia and how it influences art, society and culture today. Australia uses the Australian dollar as currency, and another logistical strength of Australia as a travel destination is that the national language is English. This makes it relatively easy for international visitors to navigate Australian culture and interact with Australians. However, many people report that it is difficult to understand many of the words specifically used in Australian English, or that deciphering a thick Australian accent can be a challenge. Perhaps it would be useful to learn about some of the linguistic differences between British or American English and Australian English before you embark on your trip, just to feel prepared for any miscommunication that might occur while you are traveling.

How we Spent 6 days in Cyprus

Day 1: Travel to Cyprus

First we chose  a nice flight, booked our hotels and flew to Cyprus. We arrived at Larnaca airport (which is actually pretty new and clean) and transferred to Limassol by a rented car. Since this was our first day we went just for a nice walk after we checked in at the hotel. We had a nice dinner at the hotel and went early in bed to fill in our batteries for the next day.

Discovering The Best Of Bali’s Food And Drink

While on your Bali Holiday trip, make sure to indulge in some delicious food and drink merrily.  Enjoy this great article.

Bali is a great place to go for pretty much any type of traveler, with various activities to make anyone happy. But among the things that are great about Bali is the wide variety of food and drinks available. Simply gastronomical!

Traditional Bali Cuisine- Some Must-Tries

When I was in Bali, obviously I made it a point to try the foods that are native to Bali and that the locals enjoy on a daily basis. One of these wonderful foods is Bebek Bututu. This dish is a specialty dish where a duck is baked in banana leaves with many different kinds of herbs and spices to form a dish that is just excitement on the tongue. It was really delicious and I thoroughly enjoyed this particular dish.

The other specialty dish in Bali is the Babi Guling (which translated literally means rolled pork). The dish comprises of pieces of pork grilled to perfection after being showered with a tongue-stimulating concoction of spices (yes, spices again, but this is Asia, what do you expect!). Babi Guling has often been raved about by celebrity chefs and travelers and for a good reason too. I could not get enough of this dish! No wonder it’s a favorite of most locals here.

The Dark Passenger’s Latest Trick – It Involves Clown Dolls

Man, this guy is killing me right now. Just when I think the Dark Passenger has stepped out for a smoke and a six pack of Coors, I turn around and he has completed destroyed some of my favorite things. He’s put cigarette holes in my grandma’s quilt and shot my dog in the ear. And after I blink a couple of times I find myself holding the gun.

Here’s his latest trick, his deadly mantra.

I’m Right.

Now I’m not talking pub trivia. I’m talking when I feel that I can lay claim to my rights or what is my possession. Doesn’t matter if it’s an argument or an agreement; it doesn’t matter if I’m talking theology or finances. It doesn’t matter what the circumstance, discussion, or conversation is worth. My Dark Passenger will put the brakes on any kind of open mindedness if my rights, possessions, intelligence, or success is on the line or threatened. You’re in my way? Doesn’t matter. You’re not working on my time-table? I’m charging forward.

And hidden in that sweet phrase, “I’m Right” is this phrase, “And you owe me, (expletive).” Since (oh, not if) I’m right, then you owe me respect, gratitude, or the honor of your humble apology. Because I’m so (bleeping) self-centered that I need to know that I’m right. I tuck myself into bed with a blanket of I’m Rights and if I don’t have them, I’m freezing out here.
