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.

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.

image
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.

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

Blogging like a piece of Lamingtons - 21st Century Sarah

WHAT IS BLOGGING 101?

Blogging with new life breath into every post. I recently took up a FREE ‘Blogging 101’ course by The Daily Post (WordPress.com Official Team) and they launched this Blogging 101 series to help writers kick-start their blogging journey. Now I am on Assignment 4. The lessons learnt in these Assignments are very eye-opening as they train your mind to plan and assist with your time-management on blogging.  What I like about these assignments is that it’s very flexible as you can do it on your own terms. However, you need to be consistent to gather up the momentum. Finding your own flow and ways of keeping up with that rhythm.

BLOGGING MIGHTIER THAN THE PEN?

When I first started blogging, the first thing I had in my mind was… “Who’s gonna read my Blog on Beauty, Energy, Health and Wellness”… Only when I started my very own journey towards Breastfeeding and Motherhood, when I needed to research on some reading materials, the first thing I would do is pick up my reading lists annndddd asked Mr Google. And since going through my very own journey towards Motherhood, I wanted to make a difference by sharing products and services that was closets to my heart, hoping to inspire young mothers to breastfeed and perhaps sharing with the Youth on the opportunities for them when they decide to venture into blogging. If you have read my previous blogs, you may ask What are the criteria to be called a blogger? Do you require to have a academic qualification? certain IT skills? Some experience with writing?

BLOGGING LIKE A SLICE OF LAMINGTONS

When you’ve decided to come out of your shell, take smalls steps towards setting-up your blog. I think of blogging like a slice of Lamingtons. Why Lamingtons I say? hihi. Lamingtons is one of my favourite desserts, when you love something you become passionate about it. Just like a baker, a baker will try to make the perfect batch of treats over and over again to make sure that the texture and taste of the dessert is up to perfection and that it makes the consumer want more and more. When you manage to obtained that level of energy, you will give your writings in yours blogs, if not 110% you will invest your 150% into your posts. I personally prefer Blogging then a website. My aim is to connect with my readers and hoping to hear from them and what aspires them to blogging everyday.

Blogging 101 with 21st Century Sarah
Blogging 101 with 21st Century Sarah

InsyAllah, this up-coming August, I will conduct a brief session for my 21st Century Dream Dolls, hoping to inspire youths of Brunei to venture into blogging and hopefully giving them a chance to kick-start their very own online business through blogging. We will see how the sessions goes in the future. I will upload some pictures from the up-coming sessions insyAllah. Stay tuned for more updates soon.

Much Love, Sarah@21st Century Sarah

Today we had another business session and Product Knowledge sharing on BB Plus Collagen.

Alhamdulilah, after advertising some of my posters to share and show opportunities to youth of Brunei on the possibilities of earning passive income via online or using social media platforms. I have received overwhelming responses on how to make the first step or using this as a stepping stone towards stepping outside your comfortzone.

image

Many have asked me. (And I get this one a lot) Why do I want to join an MLM company as part of my business plan?

Why MLM?
Since I was in highschool, my bestfriend’s parents (since the 4th grade) parents were always active, travelling, conducting meetings, going for convections. Only when I was in the 7th grade did I learned that their vacations were all-expences-all-paid vacations. Then I got to learned that they joined an most reputational MLM company in Brunei. For severals years I have seen them travel and setting up meetings. Back then I had little knowledge on this kind of business. But the thrill of being able to travel the world and meet new people was something somewhat exciting to me.

After getting married, they were few people who offered me the same offer in this very same MLM company that my best friend parents joined. But after hearing many bad experiences from people around me. My first impression of MLM business or any MLM company is always negative. Whenever some people approach me with a MLM Business Plan, I would hear them out but my heart was always closed. I remember a saying, “The mind needs to make discovers of its own”.

Then in 2010, alhamdulilah my heart was opened to a possibility of business opportunity with MLM. This time around, the approach was different. It was the approach of sharing. A close friend of mine was testing a product and she was able to obtain benefit from the product that she consumed. And soon became a local reseller for that specific brand. Later in a few months time did I realise that the company was a MLM based company. After that my whole prespective of business flipped to a 360 degress change. Then only I learned why people joined MLM:-

1. Products
When people love the products, they will share positive feedback, comments or even their real-life experiences on their journey with the products. And they will become loyal customers because they believe in the brand.

2. System
The first thing when joining any MLM company, you will be asking ‘What’s is it in for me?’ You will need to first look at the system and how much on the following:-

A. Bonus Points
B. Points to acheive to move up the rank (promotions)
C. Travel Incentives
D. Car Incentives
E. Downline members and Team Network

When you are comfortable with the system. Then you will look at other prespectives such as:-

3. History and Founder
A. Who is the owner of the MLM company
B. Mission & Vission

4. Business Plan
A. Having your very own mission / vision board.
B. Business rank target (which rank do you wish to acheive and when)
C. Product target (products you wish to acheive)
D. Daily target
E. Weekly Target
F.Monthly Target

5. Mentorship
Choose your Team, look for a team that has the same values and commitments as you. When you focus on the same target and same mission. You will be on the same wave-length.

With any decisions that we make, remember:-

D : Doa (plenty of Doas)

U: Usaha (Action plan)

I: Istiqamah (commitment)

T: Tawakal (submission)

Thats all for now folks!

Sleep tight,

Much Love
