What makes a Blogger?

blogging 101 with 21st Century Sarah

The moment when you feel that all your ideas are running low and your fingers are stuck to the keypad. think….blog….blog….think….What happens next? Yup! Sounds like a dosage of writer’s block. That little cube that is stuck in middle of our mind and blocking our creative juices from flowing. What’s the cure? Is there an antidote? Apart from banging your head to the table, is there really a way out? The same question that I ask myself over and over again when Writer’s block hit me.

WHAT MAKES A BLOGGER?

Sugar, Spice and everything nice is what girls are made of. So what are the secret ingredients to making a blogger? I remember a quote from Vince Lombardi:-

Leaders are made, they are not born. They are made by Hard Effort, which is the price which all of us must pay to achieve any goal that is worthwhile. – Vince Lombardi

How does someone know that they will become a blogger?

What are the signs that one must have?

What are the characteristics that one must possess?

What qualifications do you need?

What are the skills that you require to become a blogger?

Is there a real career path into blogging?

My answer? As long as you have:-

  1. PASSION

If you have the passion for writing then you are on the right track. Blogging is a two-way communication. A platform for you to interact with your readers and followers that have the same passions, hobbies, interests as you.

2. PERSISTENCE

What makes a blog receive high traffic stats? Apart from implementing SEO? t’s the posts. The more frequent you publish a post, the more chances that people are going to read it. The more persist you are to sticking to a posting schedule the more likely you are going to write. You don’t have to post every hour of everyday. But stick to a time and day that you are willing to invest your time in (having an editorial calendar may help). It’s much better if you are able to inject your 110% into you writings, the more ‘REAL’ your contents are, the more genuine readers and followers you will attract to your blog site.

3. PATIENCE

It’s not all about crunching the numbers. It’s not all about the stats. If you are too focused on punching numbers, then it will reflect with your writings. Be honest and stay true to you. If those creative juices isn’t flowing, no sweat!. Take a deep breath and exhale. Look outside your window and look within yourself and ask yourself what inspired you to write? What are the inspirations that captured you this week?

You do not need an actual academic qualification to blog. But you do need to have an interest into learning the blogging platforms such as Content Management System (CMS), Blogging sites that offer free domains such as WordPress.com or Blogger.com. And basic or fair knowledge in copyediting, content writing and Search Engine Optimization (SEO). The more vast your knowledge and skills, the more you will be able to decide on what works for you and your blog.

Ask yourself…What is the definition of blogging to you? Why you chose blogging? There is no actual specific answer to this question because Blogging is a universal language that everyone can speak. It’s a communication tool. It’s how you choose to use this tool is what makes a difference.

OHAYO GOZAIMASU OSAKA : Here We Come

Osaka Japan Presentation

It was just a few weeks ago when I first saw the poster that was forwarded by our group via WhatsApp. And my heart jumped for joy when I finally see the poster that was posted up on the board in the HQ.

Osaka Japan Trip

Osaka Japan Fight Trip

In my previous post, I shared on our business trip to Miri. The previous session was conducted by CDM (Crown Diamond Manager) Kelvin who has been with Sahajidah Hai-O Marketing since 1994 (almost 21 years) he shared on the features and benefits of Bio-Velocity Technology. 

And CDM Hisham also came to Brunei and shared on the importance of managing and maintenance of documentation in your business (no matter if you are operating online or offline) such as: Balance Sheet, Profit & Loss Statement and daily Expences. He also shared the many milestones that Sahajidah Hai-O Marketing Sdn Bhd has obtained since their establishment from Forbes Awards to Accredited Certifications for their products, you can visit their website for more certifications and awards: Hai-O Main website. What I love about Sahajidah Hai-O is that of course their are based on honesty (we receive our bonus entitlement and is always credited to our account every middle of the month), the foundation of their business is based on locals for locals and that even though the MLM company is from Chinese Generation but most of their members are also from Local Malays. From CDM Hisham presentation, we have learned alot from the roots, history, acheivement and also their contributions to making the economy better. Did you know that MLM Industry has contributed Specificly to Malaysia’s economy?

Why MLM?

If you are wondering why I chose MLM Industry as part of my Work At Home Mum (WAHM) program under 21st Century Dream Team (for bloggers) then you gotta read this.

After the introduction and a breakie session, the next session was an eye-opener on product knowledge that evolved on:

1. Bio-Velocity Sleep Mate

2. Bio Seleza Feminie Pads

Eid Mubarak : Then and Now

Selamat Hari Raya Maaf Zahir dan Batin. A blessed Eid Mubarak to all and may you have a blessed Eid.

image

As much as I am sad that Ramadhan has gone. And praying that I we will see next Ramadhan InsyAllah, ameen ameen Ya Rabb. This year Eid Mubarak I have had the chance to see, experience and feel the different aura and environment of how Eid (Hari Raya as we like to call it here in Brunei) is celebrated outside of Brunei. This year we managed to visit Kota Kinabalu. My husband’s relative is located in Papar and we had the chance to visit the neighbouring country. We witness on how Hari Raya was celebrated there. Despite the different culture and traditions, you can still sense the Hari Raya spirit in the air. With music of hari raya songs blazing in the shopping complexs, hari raya songs of new and old playing back to back on the Radio stations. And meeting old faces of long distance relative makes the heart warm. The food is oh so my…a mixture of sweet, spicy and tangy of different varities of home-cooked meals. What touched me the most the scene of when we returned from KK to return to my husband’s aunt place (as we were staying there overnight). Its was past 12am ish and the streets were dark (literally dark as there is no street lamps) and the brightest house on the very end welcomed us of cheer, children playing fireworks, bright & colorfull festive lights and relatives from each corner of the village welcomed us with such hospitality and kindness. The warmth of the moment melted my heart away as it had brought me to a flashback moment of my childhood in the 90s and how we celebrated Hari Raya.

Back in the 90s
When I was growing up, the joy and cheer of Hari Raya can be felt as the environment was filled with young children visited every home on the street and was invited in for a glass of cold beverages, cookies of all kinds and of course, green packs for each child. The cheer of lighting fireworks during the night, the spirit of spring-cleaning the homes and re-arranging the living rooms for family and friends to get comfortable during their visits. Sights if the males going to mosques to perform their prayers and giving Zakat.

Now in the 21st Century
Now in our Era, many things have changed. There are less visits by the children, as there are all grown-up now. And more into virtual games then fireworks. Huhu. And the tradition of what used to be our joy of walking to visit our neighbours have now slowly faded. But on the other hand the Traditional Family portraits are now made of selfies and wefies, which is hip and kinda fun. Capturing moments that you can store at the palm of your hand and you can see them whenever you like.

Traditional family portraits are now called Selfies or Wefies

Traditional family portraits are now called Selfies or Wefies.

As the ages come and gone. There are much differance of Hari Raya then and now . Apart from aging each year, I feel that some traditions are slowly fading. Hoping that youth will still carry on the true meaning of Eid Mubarak (Hari Raya). That is asking for forgiveness, being thankful that we are still well and alive and not forgetting to give to those who have less.

Here The Deens would like to wish everyone a blessed Eid Mubarak.

Blogging 101: Day 7 – Keepin it Real by personalizing your blog

Its been almost a week since I took up the free blogging course by The Blogging University : The Daily Post. For today’s post is to create a personalize blog by creating a fun, wicked header image.

If you have read through my blog, you will notice that only recently I took blogging serious. Previously I was blogging to share on my experience, self-experiments and sharing on products that I loved and enjoyed consuming on a daily basis. That is food & health supplements. This year I took the iniative to step-up the blogging game by focusing more in-depth on what I hope and wish for my blog to acheive by the end of this year. And one of the ways is by joining this free online course that is conducted by The Daily Post : Blogging University.

Now we at day 7. What I wanna share is how I created my Header Picture. Back in 2012, I named my blog ‘TwentyFirst Century Momma’ because my focus back then was to sell breastfeeding accessories and share motherhood journey and experiences. Only recently this year, I decided to purchase the Domain dot.com (.com) and changed my blog domain from wordpress.com to 21stcenturysarah.com. The roots and foundation of why I created this blog will still remained rooted which is Motherhood, Breastfeedings, being a Bookworm, Beauty, Energy, Health and Wellness will always stay close to my heart. By investing my time into how my blog layout, images, topics and content is very important to me. And I wanted to ensure the origins of my blog is pure and closet to its natural origin (real, honest and close to the truth). My header I chose a customize image from Canvas Image Editor where you can select FREE open source images.

My header tagline is ‘The Purest Of It’s Origin Is At It’s Core’. This statement I had as my MSN Status (yes back in the day when I used MSN to chit-chat). The story of how this favourite motto of mine came to mind was when I was looking for a unique phrase to express the self-discover I had back then in the year 2007. A self journey to wearing the Hijab full-time. Until now, this motto of mine has a special place in my heart.

Now this year, am hoping to keepin it real on my blog by personalizing my blog with bits and pieces that represents me (in someway). And at the same time hoping to get inspiration from others bloggers on how they conduct the placement of the logos, headers and headerlines and tagline. Can’t wait to surf the posts.

To Blog or Not To Blog? Is that a question?

We all have heard the term: “To be or not to be, that is the question”? In this case, to blog or not to blog, that is the question. These few months has been a wild roller coaster. To be honest, I have never found myself in a position where I have hit the backspace button more in my life. At times, I have had trouble writing as if a huge gigantic writer’s block that is stuck to the inside of my skull and working it’s way like a magnetic chip. After a while, I felted that there was something bothering me, coz I was distracted by many thoughts in my head. Then I decided to sit-down and have a little ‘ME’ time and wanted to sought-out the things that has been bothering me. And here is what I found:-

1. FEAR

FEAR is a motivation

A few months back, I have decided to resign from my current workplace as my youngest daughter needs to go for Speech Therapy sessions and Early Development Programs sessions at least 3 (Three) times in a week at the local Child Development Centre. And these sessions will take 1 hour up to 3 hours in a day that will last for the next 6 (six) months. Both my girls were diagnose with Learning Difficulties and Speech Delay, with my youngest she had NASB (Negative Attention Seeking Behaviour) where she could have mild to severe tantrums at times when she felt frustrated if she could not express herself. As a concern parent, I decided to take a leap of faith and handed in my 2 (two) months resignation letter. And time flies by very fast and this month will be my last month titled as a ‘Working’ mum. Only did it hit me when some of my relatives were asking me ‘What am I going to do next’? And it occurred to me that, will my plan to run a full-time online business with a part-time income work for me? What happens if it has gone down the drain? How are we going to find an alternative income to pay the bills, to buy groceries, to buy school necessities for the little ones during back-to-school seasons, to purchase necessities during next Ramadhan and Raya (Eid Mubarak)? There was a voice inside my head that grows louder and louder by each and every day as the days on my calendar count-down. The voice was so loud that the tiny, little whisper of hope was almost gone. Then chills ran down my spine, as I realised that I feared of what the future will be.

2. LEAP OF FAITH

Now that I was able to identify the factors that created the writer’s block inside my head. I admitted to myself that I feared of something that was not certain and that it was all in my head, imagining and envisioning of things that could bring negative impact to me. I told myself and kept repeating to myself that I took ‘A Leap of Faith’ and why should I fear of something that is uncertain, when I have Allah. Only then it hit me. These 4 words meant something to me:-

“A LEAP OF FAITH”   

Leap : to transition / transport one place to another.

Faith: To believe in your faith and that your faith will guide you.

When we believe, truly believe that everything happens for a reason.

Is prescribed upon you [the] fighting while it (is) hateful to you. But perhaps [that] you dislike a thing and it (is) good for you; and perhaps [that] you love a thing and it (is) bad for you. And Allah knows while you (do) not know. Ayat Al-Baqarah, 2:216

I told myself that if I kept on thinking of negative thoughts, my body will take me to that direction. Apa yang kitani fikirkan adalah doa (What we think is apart of our prayers). Think positive, have the right intentions, set a positive mind, plenty of Doas & Prayers, plenty of Usaha (Actions), Istiqamah (Consistency), Tawakal (Trusting in Allah’s Plan) and always and always tanamkan rasa Syukur (Appreciation and Thankfulness)

Motivation.FEAR04

On the other side, Alhamdulilah that I am able to identify the bumps and curves that are affecting my girls development. And I know in my heart that this sacrifice will be an investment for them and their future. Now I end this post with a question:-

“To Blog or Not to Blog” It is a choice. And we all have a choice, a choice to fear or a  choice to identify that fear and do something about it.

Much Love; Sarah@21st Century Sarah
