Sitting at home on day, I was board tired of watching the same old stuff on the television and if they did have something new on TV it was of no interest to me. I wanted to have something else to do with myself. My knee was hurting and it was raining out. I remember thinking to myself I wish I had a hobby.
I also remembered that last week, I had mentioned to my pregnant daughter that was on bed rest. That maybe she should get a hobby find something to do with herself, while she was home. She says; I do daddy, I talk to all of my friends on Facebook. We share pictures gossip and talk to each other about what’s going on in our lives, it’s a lot of fun. Of course as a dad I come out with the ole; you should be doing something more productive, other than gossiping with your friends. And let it go at that. Having a flash back, of my wife being seven months pregnant. So I walked away from this one while I was safe.
I have always loved to journal so I decided to do that for a while, when I was finish putting my entry in for that week I looked over on my desk and noticed my camera with a whole load of pictures that needed to be loaded into my computer.
That was when it hit me; I wish I could write a journal about all of these pictures. Kind of like a scrapbook. But I just didn’t want to have the hassle of printing out the pictures, than having to go out to get a book, colored paper and glue. Right away my mind went to “Glue” that sounded a little messy. Now while uploading my pictures I notice a little tab on the page that said “Scrapbook” So I looked at that.
Now I’m determined, I am going to find something to do with myself. So I start off by surfing the web. Almost every topic I found was on these blogs. The blogs all had pictures and many different topics. Now I’m thinking to myself; these things must take a lot of work and money. Nevertheless I looked it up anyway. Guess what? I was wrong; I found out that a blog “Web-log” is just like an online journal.
The good thing about creating a blog was that I had an option to make it private or public. I started off with the private one and now I found my hobby.
Now as look further into this blogging stuff I find out that you can make money doing this. People are out there making a living, a very good living doing this stuff, that I now have as a hobby. This turned out to be true very true.
The strange part is that I don’t really know how to write. I never even finished the ninth grade. I just enjoy it. Plus who cares? You don’t like it; don’t read it! But millions of people do, who would have known?
I am now making money, having fun and doing what I love. All from sitting home with nothing better to do.
