One foot into the unknown - the secrets of making money online

Things are just moving on so quickly. Soon, I will be most probably back in Singapore trying to find a job so that I can pay off the rent my expenses there - rent, food, entertainment and the occasional luxury or two.

Truth to be told, the very thought of having a 9 to 5 job where I would have to wake up early to go to work every day scares the living daylights out of me.


It really does. I always wanted to be rich, not to be rich for the sake of being rich, but rich enough so that I would not have to ever worry about the whole issue of making money, so that I can spend my time where it is most needed - with the people who mean the world to me.

With my current financial position, many discussions with the people around me lately revolve around the subject of money, and how to make it quick. It usually goes something like this:

"Go push drugs (or run a brothel or insert any other illegal means of making money) lah! One ship load then don't need to work for a month already lar!"

"Siao ar you! Want me to die is it?"

The tulan face

On a more serious note, I do believe that there are ways in which one can make enough money with relatively easy effort and time. Here, I believe the key is in working smart rather than working hard - there must be some ways to increase my income in a relatively quick and easy way.

So I popped on google and did a little search and I somehow ended up in this woman's blog and she claims to make 5 digit figures on blogging alone each month!

What she has to say on her blog (http://www.5xmom.com/):

I am the world’s 2nd Most Obnoxious Blogger, after Perez Hilton.
I have been named Malaysia’s 50 most Influential Blogger.
My blogs are amongst the 70 Most Popular Blogs in Malaysia.
This blog is one of the world’s Top 100 Blogs on Make Money.
I make five digit Ringgit Malaysia just from blogging.

5 digit Ringgit Malaysia just from blogging? That's just what I'm talking about! From reading the blog, it seems that she mantains a number of blogs with catchy names which she makes sure are properly indexed by google and other major search engines like yahoo. Therefore, when you enter a popular search term in google, her blog pops up on the first page, giving her blog a really good chance to score a hit.

Also, she mentioned that anticipating what people search for during a certain season then matching your blog entries such issues will also cause a blog's hits to rise. For example, as housewives are wont to worry about Christmas recipes and search for it online during the Christmas season, a blog that has posts on such topics is a lot more likely to score hits off people looking for information through a search engine.

Steps to getting a new blog running (and making money)

1) Think of a nice domain name

2) Buy it and host it

3) Set up domain

4) Install Wordpress with Fantastico one-click

5) Find nice theme

6) Upload theme with ftp and add tracking codes like analytics, site stats

7) Upload via ftp some of the important plugins and activate them

8) Change domain name pointing to www from WP dashboard

9) Change permalink structure to search engine friendly type

10) Start blogging

11) Keep blogging

12) Add adsense

13) Submit URL to main search engines or if you already have other blogs, link the new blog from your old blog

14) Keep blogging

15) Start dreaming of making big bucks


While I do not intend this blog to be one that is ad-infested (as 5xmom's blog definitely is), I guess learning how to get this page properly ranked by google would help me get more hits, translating to a little extra income if I register for say nuffnang ads. Extra income would always be welcome in these uncertain times. So keep coming back readers! Hope that this information helps you get rich through blogging!
