to my blog. I am so glad you found my page. The idea of blogging started back in 2008 when I was still a pharmacy student. Instead of studying, I’d be online every day for hours reading blog posts.
I didn’t start because I didn’t know what I would blog about or if anybody would even read my blog. The idea came back to be in 2011 and again in 2013 when I started to follow some fashion and food bloggers. I love clothes and I love food, but I just didn’t think I would love those things enough to have a blog.
Here we are…almost a DECADE later and I am writing my first post.
So why did I finally start a blog?
I started this blog after I came across a post on Yahoo! about a couple that started investing and after less than 10 years, they were able to quit their jobs and travel!
I read their blog and instantly wanted to blog about investing and traveling.
What I didn’t realize at the time was that there are so many ways you can make money blogging whether it’s through ad revenue, affiliate marketing, selling your own courses, seminars, etc..etc…
Oh nice! Sign me up!
But it wasn’t until after I started blogging that I realized how hard it was and still is. It is a lot of work and commitment. Many pull-my-hair-out moments.
I am not a technical person at all, and somehow little by little, day by day, I managed to have my site up and running. I have learned so much by having this blog.
While I started this blog to share with you my investing strategies, my goal of retiring early and to travel the world. The focus has now shifted a little because I deal with my blogging struggles daily such as how to get traffic, how to get followers, how to get readers and everything else that comes with blogging.

I want to share with you tips and what not to do when starting a blog. That is not to say I will stop writing about finance and travel. Not at all! I am traveling to Vietnam and Thailand, possibly Cambodia June/July 2018 and I cannot wait to write more about my trip.
Thank you for visiting my site and I hope you will follow me on this journey to becoming a digital nomad.
