You can make money on the internet too - seriously!

I have a lot of "offline friends" who read this blog and are curious about how I get to earn through blogging. This is post is for you my friends, and all those newbie bloggers with personal blogs who are curious about how to make money on the internet.

You can make money on the internet with a personal blog

I am not the authority on stuff like "How to Monetize Your Blog" or "How to make money on the internet" - there are thousands of people who know that way better than me.  I will tell you instead my experience with it so far.

I have a personal blog, and in my one year of blogging, I've earned roughly around Php 2,500.00.  It's nothing to brag about, believe me, especially when other uber bloggers are earning as much as Php 1,000,000 ($20k) in one month on their blogs...

Haiti Earthquake

I live in a country where natural disasters are commonplace - earthquakes, typhoons, erupting volcanoes, floods - you name it, we've gone through it for sure. But even though year in and year out we experience these tests, nothing really prepares you for it...

My mind on a Syzygy

My mind bleeps in short bursts of thought. Inconsistent.
I start a sentence and terminate a phrase.
Don't terminate. Don't terminate my space.

Overwhelmed with anger at the sheer audacity.
Disillusioned. My idealism shattered. Insanity.
Stupefied by the blatant neglect. Or ignorance?
For the answers we know to the questions we dare not ask.

For all this craziness, who has most to gain when we have the most to lose?

I've lost my rhyme and rhythm.
A dissonance. A nuance. A knot in my nape that cannot be undone.
Should I resign myself and brace for the impact?

The Magnificent Paoay Church, Ilocos Norte

We arrived in the evening at one of the most beautiful and well preserved Catholic churches in the Philippines, the Paoay Church for the wedding rehearsal of my friends Eg and Ryan. They were getting married the following day.

There was a chorus of exclamations when we got out of the jeepney. The lighted facade of Paoay Church was magnificent in the darkness.

Paoay Church is the St. Augustine Church in Paoay, Ilocos Norte

It was around 8 o'clock in the evening and already quite dark. We alighted our service jeepney and walked towards the Paoay Church. We were ushered in the side entrance by the caretaker...

My favorite photos from Nemie and Sherwin's Wedding

I take too many photos, really. Haha. But these are my favorite shots from my friend Nemie's wedding to Sherwin on Dec 26, 2009.

While the bride was walking down the aisle, the groom was actually crying tears of joy - then he was all smiles as he hugged the bride's father.

2009 Reyjr Travel Blog Recap

One of my favorite things about this blog is that it doubles as my travel blog. The fact that it is a personal travel blog allows me to write freely about the places I visit.

My travel blog pages have also become a sort of photo album - photos with captions and stories to go with them. What a wonderful idea, don't you think?

Fishes, Beaches and Pine in 2009

Here are my 2009 Travel posts to date and the months when they were published. Some of them I visited this year, other I visited a long time ago but only got to write about it now. Here goes...

The Mayon Volcano, Legazpi City, Albay

Back in 2004, my family and I went to Albay to see the beautiful perfect cone of Mayon Volcano.  I remember we arrived - after 14 hours on the road - late in the evening and so did not get a chance to see it that night.
