3 Li(v)es I’ve Enjoyed Living on Social Media to Fool My Followers

Reading Time: 5 minutes

Hello everyone! 😀

April Fools is approaching. And before you skip the post because you think I’ll fool you with some pranks, then nope… I’ve been fooling you for way too long that I don’t think I need to fool you one more time in what’s supposed to be a special day to fool people. *laughing high and dry*

Anyway, I suppose we have probably watched the video about InstaLie. You know, the video that has gone viral on Youtube where the content is pretty much about reality vs social media.

Well, I will talk about this on this post, although mind you… This would be a little personal, only for me and you! 😉

Last month, it was this blog’s anniversary.

Not that it matters, because I’m still struggling to gain some viewers and sometimes I get some writer’s block in a way I have no idea what to write. However, I think it’s a great step as in I’ve learned many things from my first year to work on The BeauTraveler. 🙂

As you may probably read it somewhere on my post, I only decided to actually focus on monetizing my blog last year. I have been blogging since forever, using different platforms in the past. From the classic LiveJournal to the mainstream Blogspot, I used everything.

It was until in 2009 when I decided to only focus on updating my daily journal on Tumblr. Until last year, I finally decided to start learning more about blogging and how to work things out so I could make it a source of income.

And if you’re familiar with the term rookie mistake, then I’ve done it. A lot of it.
