What Happened to My Bloggy Earning in 2010?

And so what happened to my bloggy earning in 2010?

First, let me tell you what happened to my bloggy earning in 2009. I used it mostly for traveling. In 2009, God has opened an opportunity for me to travel and I have traveled to 10 new countries.

  • I was able to take my family (and my parents-in-law) for a Macau - Hongkong - China trip in April-May 2009.

  • My parents came for 2 months in August - September and I took them for a short trip to Hatyai, Thailand.

  • I paid my own way to London, UK (when my husband had to go for a conference in Bogota, Colombia) and then to Bogota, Colombia. I thank God that that time, there was an Air Asia promotion to London. And from London, we took Air France. So the airfare was not that heavy to the pocket.

  • And at the end of 2009, God provided for my fare to go to US with my husband .... and the blessing was brought forward to year 2010...

Which I can start the 2010 now.

While in the US, we had a side trip to Mexico. Then on our way back to Malaysia from the US, we have a 5-hour tour in Seoul South Korea.

Then I vowed I wouldn't travel with my husband for the rest of 2010.

And so the bloggy earning was used to buy 2 dslr's.

  • Sony A380 with twin lens (I thought of selling but later decided against it. Sony produces a very good quality pictures. I am keeping it for my son)

  • Nikon D90 with kit lens.

  • And a primary lens 50mm f/1.4

  • We had some small time family trips in Malaysia and in Thailand and I took care of the finances.

  • We had a big time party for family in November last year, too. And of course, I helped out a bit in our family's needs.

  • And some earnings for 2010 will be brought forward for 2011 as I have booked a family travel for 2011 and bought my parents and sister's airfare from the Philippines to Malaysia for July - September. And booked a small time holiday for me with friends.

Phew! Finally I was able to evaluate how I spend my earnings. And so, to say it briefly:

  1. 2009 was a year of travel
  2. 2010 a year of photography

I consider bloggy earning as a blessing from God. I stay at home only and can't help much. But the good thing is that, I can earn something and yet I can stay at home and be hands on with my kids.

I wonder how others spend their bloggy earnings?
