I’m an Internet Entrepreneur, Marketer, Blogger and Student from Hong Kong.
Well here’s how I started. Well I was about 8 or 9, my parents brought our first home computer: If you saw it today, you’ll laugh: It was a Fujitsu desktop with Windows 98, a Pentium 3 processor and a huge screen between the size of a CRT screen and a LCD screen. Anyways, the computer itself isn’t important. The thing that was important was what it allowed me to access to: The Internet. Of course, nowadays almost everyone had access to the Internet. The Internet was like a window of opportunity: anything was possible online. Including Making Money Online.
Well, I wasn’t an evil money grabber when I was 9. I started having a love for gadgets: I started to read Engadget, and soon TechCrunch everyday. Fast forward to October 2008, I decided to start trying to make money online; I created a free BlogSpot blog with gadget news and placed a few AdSense ads on it. At the height on the blog, I got 10k+ Page views a month, not bad considering I was doing this just for fun. In March 2009, I made my first $100 online from my first AdSense cheque, only after three months I originally started the blog, and shortly after, made my first $1000 online in August of the same year. As for the year 2012, I’ll be on track to making my first $50,000 online.
Thanks to my reading of TechCrunch over the years, I created many Social Media profiles, including Twitter, Facebook and many others, way before they even became popular. This is one of the many reasons that contribute to my 70,000+followers on Twitter.
I’ll admit my biggest mistake: Not starting off with a self-hosted WordPress blog and my domain. I started this “making money online” as something for fun. Nowadays I have my own hosted server with my own domain, thanks to Hostgator!
