My summary on blogging

I started out this second personal blog of mine when I moved to London. I founded it in 2010 mainly to stay in touch with my friends and family in Philippines. It makes me smile to read that very first entry as I clearly thought I was very late to the blogging game, when in fact I know so many blogs that have been founded much more recently!

There are so many blogs trying to make money and – let’s be honest – many (not all) of them don’t have any personality. There are blogs that I LOVE but there is also a terrible SAMENESS to many blogs. In the last year or so I have come to the realisation that I don’t really care about making money from my blogging. I just want to have fun. And so, I have made my First Fun Blog contest.

I have a lot of friends who read my blog and I’ve made a lot of friends through blogging too and I want to write for the audience I already have and watch it grow organically. I just want to ENTERTAIN people and I don’t really care if I don’t reach a mass audience.

I’m really loving the blogging that I’m doing at the moment. I’m very proud of my previous posts on  Am I going to be rich?I am not ChineseThe First Taste of the First SnowfallHere I Am, and so on. I’m enjoying running guest posts from my fellow bloggers – I’ve published some great ones so far and there’s more to come.

Field of Dreams is going to be all about blogging with passion and writing about things that interest ME. I’m always excited on my every posts and I hope you’ll take this journey with me!

So true - it's not about reaching a mass audience! And it's fun when you get to make new friends in the process as well as connect bloggers with each other. So touched when I met an OFW blogger who wrote a poem for another OFW blogger bec her mom is battling cancer. OFWs are amazing :) Mabuhay ang Pinoy!

Happy blogging :)
