10 Things I Learned after 2 years of Blogging

I still can’t believe this blog, pinayinvestor.com, is now on its second year! Time has really flown by.

At first, all I wanted was to have a sort of an online diary, where I could share my experiences in personal finance — something I didn’t have as much experience with when I started.

But there’s always something new to learn and there’s always room for improvement.

I had no background in blogging and internet marketing before I got into this. I learned it all along the way and that means I did a lot of things wrong (and probably still am) before figuring out how to do them right.

Hey! How are you?

As we all know, the month of May has just ended, and June has just said hello!

Next goal: Hiking with Friends?

It’s summer time again and this season reminds me of one of the items on my bucket list that still remains unchecked.

That is, to go hiking and trekking with my high school friends…

My high school friends in the mountains again!

They’ve been inviting and encouraging me to join them in their hiking trips, but with my current responsibilities plus my not-so-fit physique, I don’t feel confident about going with them.

But deep inside me, I feel very excited by the thought that I will go hiking again just like the old times.

Pinay Investor Updates – April 2016

Pinay Investor header

My last Pinay Investor Updates post was published almost half a year ago. Can’t believe it’s been that long. Time really flies so fast.

If you’re new to this site and you know nothing about Pinay Investor, I’ll just give you a short background of how it all started.

I used to work in a call center company (BPO) for 7 years before I decided to resign and try working from home. And because I didn’t have any idea on what to do at home or where to find work-at-home opportunities, I attended a one-day workshop, entitled, Work-at-Home-Mom or WAHM 101.
