Life is Meant to be Joyful

So, when you are not feeling happy, you're going against life's natural design.

During the moments of despair, we still have the choice to be happy. Freedom is the ability to make our own decisions.

Decide to feel happy, always. Because it is good to feel good. That's our natural state of well-being.

The 9th Blog

This, by the way, is my nineth blog.

I'd like it to focus it on the art and science of web mastering.

Another New Year's Resolution

OK, three days have gone into 2006, and I've just thought of my new year's resolution. Better late than never, right?

So here it goes. Now that I've created myself 9 different blogs in 2005, my new year's resolution is to maintain most of them regularly. He! He! Then again, since time is relative, how would one define 'regularly?'

Why on earth did I create 9 blogs is beyond me. I suppose the plethora of available web utilities enables easy creation of blogs, but not necessarily of updating them. I've seen some blogs being automatically updated with junks. They have no real value, except that they have daily updated contents which search engines love to crawl and bring traffic to.

My dream job is to be an independent professional blogger. That job means surfing the web majority of the time for something to blog about, and actually writing something whenever I feel like it. I don't have to worry about the morning traffic, and there's no boss I need to answer to. I could be in my pyjamas from dawn till dusk, and continue in that state of nirvana until the next dawn.

Unfortunately, than won't happen anytime soon as the amount of money I earn online is nowhere near what I get from my 9-5 job. :( At the rate I'm going now, I would be an amateur blogger until the day I retire. Hopefully by then, my blogging skills would be harnessed enough to actually earn me some real dosh.

In the mean time, I hope 12 months from now, I could look back and say, "Hey, I have 9 regularly updated blogs." Wishful thinking, huh? Should I think of another resolution for the new year, then?
