I'm back on my feet..I'm back to blogging...and I hope it's for good :) I kinda thought I might as well revive this blog of mine instead of creating another blog. I missed writing a lot. I couldn't deny the writer in me, I could not suppress it for a long, long time heheh..
So, let's start backtracking the past events of my life after this TI thing.
Where have I been? I've been to London to visit the Queen. Oh, no! Definitely, not :) I'm just around the corner, trying to be a wahm. Working from home is really my dream since I now have three little angels to look after. I'd love to be with them most of the time, to take care of them, to pamper them, to nurture them as they grow. It always hurts me every time I go to the office and my 5-yr son and 3-yr old daughter beg me not to. You see, my kids are so demanding of my time. They should be, right? My son would say, "Mommy, please don't go to work. Stay here." My daughter would then second the motion by saying, "Don't go." Or worst, "Mommy, I want to go to work with you." "No, no, baby, you can't. Just stay here with your kuya and take care of your baby sister. I'll bring you Dunkin' when I come back. I'll bring you..." Oh, my gosh! I feel so guilty I have to offer them food or something material in exchange of my time for them. I feel so inadequate as a mother.
That's why my quest to be a wahm will always be strong...More so than ever now that I am blessed with another angel - my two-month old Zyra Ariana Gabrielle or Arra for short.
So, where have I been? Well, I didn't involve myself with another online data entry job after TI. The trauma was still there. I was more than afraid to try anything online job again. I also stopped doing AS and HYIPs, I lost more than I earned from them. Now I can say I graduated from them and learned a lot. There's only one online business I stick myself to - VIP Global Marketing Solutions of mrsvee. But I won't go to details about that here..hehe..It's good enough to say that I've been there since Feb and I'm more than happy.
I still continue going to a physical office Mon-Sat 9-6pm. At the same time, I keep myself up and about what the Internet can do to help me realize my dream of earning online from home. I tried doing Affiliate Marketing but I just don't have the time and resources needed. I thought of going freelance as a writer or data entry operator but I didn't know how and where I'd get clients to offer my service to.
Not until I got to know oDesk. What exactly is this thing called oDesk? It's getting popular to freelancers as each day passes by. Here in the Philippines alone the growth of oDeskers is quite phenomenal for the first quarter of the year. Many Filipino freelancers - whether a data entry person, writer, programmer, SEO expert - are now getting to know oDesk, and earning good from offering their services there.
What oDesk is all about exactly? From Wikipedia "oDesk is a company with a global job marketplace and a series of tools targeted at businesses that intend to hire and manage remote workers." It is fairly new, having been established since 2003. What makes it different from other freelancer sites is oDesk's use of its proprietary tools which keeps track of providers logged working hours for guaranteed payment.
I'll talk about oDesk more in my next post, my little one is up and crying already, looking for her "moommy" :). See how demanding they can get? heheh...No complaining here, definitely. They deserve my attention more than anything else in this world. I love my kids and I dote on them. All I can say is that, after a little more than a month as an oDesker, I am happy because I got to rediscover myself and my hidden abilities and earn from them as well.
