10 yrs ago, when i first came to Canada – the “ang moh’s” family and extended ones were really amused that I take pictures of everything i eat and everything i do. In fact, it had become a part of their life – to let me take pictures first before they even start a meal, to them it’s like me going on treadmills to keep me happy. But you see not everyone knows what i do online, in fact last week when i was taking pictures of this home made lemon meringue pie made by Aunt Helena – the “ang moh’s” uncle was totally amused and asked me what i do with these pictures. In which i replied that I make money outta them. HAHAHHA!! he thought i was joking.
At first, he thought i sold the pictures of the food pictures and then “ang moh” explained to him about my food blog. Not many of you, know that one can make money online and i’m pleased to inform you that it is not a myth, it is true – yours truly is one of them. You don’t have to write “bullshit” like what “ang moh’s” father used to say about me – but if you are passionate about food or just about any niche, you can make money. Once again, let me warn you that if anyone ask you to pay money upfront to join their “make money online” affiliate program, then you can be sure that you are getting scammed. I never have to pay to make money and am fortunate that I have great sponsors for various different blogs of mine. Making money online is not by fluke or luck but a lot of hard work and research – and time consuming, so if you think that making money is a shake leg business then you are wrong. There are a lot of self-proclaimed internet guru or SEO experts out there – hahahha!! and some who claims they make 1000s of dollars every month – well, unless you are John Chow or Darren Rowse – i highly doubt so. Well, there you have it in a nutshell – and yes, my passion is still food and yes, I make money online but compared to pro bloggers like John and Darren – i donch even make a fraction of what they make but i’m happy to let you know that I’ve build a small little nest for my daughter and can afford little luxuries without having to “ta fu tou” – on our grocery money.
