It’s been a while since I wrote the blog post about my intention of doing an Uber business. At the time of that writing, I was just getting my car loan papers ready and obviously a lot has happened since then. That being said, I figured a quick update or recap blog post would be perfect at this point.
Uber entered the country early in 2014 and the first time I heard and tried it was around September of the same year. I already know what Uber was but I never thought it would be possible for it to be available in the Philippines due to the country being poor (no pun-intended). Now that it’s here for more than a year, I figured that considering doing an Uber business is not too insane to consider.
Long time readers of this blog know that I got started blogging with the topic that I love the most, basketball. I’ve been a complete basketball junkie since I was 5 years old and that easily translated into me writing my thoughts about the game mostly with NBA games and sometimes the local league here in the Philippines.
I have secured a heavily discounted airfare ticket to travel to Japan for a short vacation later this year and it’s going to be my third time going out of the country. I still need to secure a visa and obviously plan my itinerary but I’m excited as heck. 🙂
Going in line with me doing more casual posts in this blog plus the fact that I’ve been having this fascination with cooking for about a year now, I decided that it won’t be too out of ordinary to start writing food blog posts which are basically about my dining experiences, etc. Plus this also helps me build my local audience more as discussed in the previous blog post. 🙂
I started blogging in 2008 when I was still a college student. During the time I was taught to target a broader audience that can easily relate to the topic that I’m writing about. These audience were considered the ‘paying’ audience as they tend to buy stuff online and even if you’re not selling anything, these people will theoretically make you more money if you have ads on your site.
I am not a traveler. Aside from the fact that it costs to travel, I always feel like it’s not for me. As a person who stays pretty much in front of the computer most of the time, I always think of traveling as a waste of time. Maybe not, but something that one should do like once in a year or even two years. The past couple of years have allowed me to experience it and somewhat change my heart about it.
