ok guys, i’ve finally got my own blog. It’s the easiest way to record my own ideas and also keep track of exactly what i’m doing.
i’ll update it daily (well, i intend to.)
the danger with this is that it can get too personal, too open, but then again that can be a good thing because it keeps you guys entertained.
anyway, i’ve set up this blog to serve as a diary on my quest for making a living out of the internet. My every dollar spent and earned will be recorded. Hopefully, one day, i can look back on this first post and say to someone ‘that was me when i was still working…’
you see i don’t regard the internet as ‘work’. It’s a hobby, a past-time…a love. Earning a living out of this would heaven. The best thing about this is that everything is in my hands. I call the shots, i make the decisions… i own and run everything from my own bedroom.
It’s not the bently’s and mansions that the google/microsoft/amazon founders have which motivate me. Oh no. It’s the fear of failure. The fear of waking up every morning at 8 o’clock, getting dressed, going to work half asleep. Doing everyday normal things… like having lunch in a canteen.. getting a payslip every week..
I’ve been there, done that and i don’t like it. That taste of normality is fresh in my mouth, and i will use as motivation today and tomorrow and probably 10 years down the line. I will not stop until i am my own boss.
