My name is Louie Sison. I am 31 years old from Pampanga, Philippines. Aside from blogging, I currently manage a department of 30 reports analyst, working night shifts in 7 years for a global BPO company here at Clarkfield, Pampanga. When I’m not blogging, I usually play basketball, drink coffee with friends or take care of my 4-month old daughter (I love taking pictures of her while she’s asleep).
I got interested in blogging way back 2009. It was the year when I was still self-studying web development until I came across a work mate who’s involve in selling web hosting space and domains. Our conversation got deeper until she told me that she owns a blog and she earns decent money from it on a monthly basis.
What’s the topic of my blog, you asked?
In 2010, my girlfriend (now my wife) and I decided to buy our own domain name. I was able to influence her and together we blogged about our province (Pampanga). On our blog, we showcased; hotels, restaurants, stories of people and history, places to visit, our own food and drive trips, more like a directory of Pampanga.
At first, we just treat our blog more of a hobby. Then it turned to be our advocacy. We have alsoenvisioned it to be a thriving business someday. Now, most of my AdSense and affiliate earnings come from that blog.
I will not forget the time we received our first income from the blog (first $100), it was 12 months after we build it. But the amount did not really matter to us because what we do is our passion and we love doing even without monetary returns.
We worked even harder to get contents and write stories until it paid off our first 5-figure income. It was December of 2011 when we cashed out 25,000 Pesos from AdSence.Just right on time to pay some billson our incoming wedding the following year.
Today, we infrequently update the site. I only upload contents every once in a while. Although the earnings dropped due to this, it has gained enough traffic and income to support hosting and related fees.
Currently, my main focus in blogging is my self titled blog “Louie Sison Dot Com”. On this blog I share my own online experiences and talk about Search Engine Optimization, Internet Marketing, Affiliate Marketing, Blogging, Social Media as well as making money from the Internet.
In the future, I plan to eventually leave the “working for hours” industry and concentrate more on managing my own online businesses such as blogging and service provider company.
My ultimate goal in blogging is to share the good news that I’ve heard, that making money online is not impossible. While I impart to tips and tricks, I’m also learning on how to improve, blog better and the bonus part is to earn higher income.
