Painting for money, blogging for what??

Recently I've been working very hard to increase my income for November and December. Since the world economy has been dropped and effecting the buying power of most citizens. My ebay sales also dropped and it is far from my expectation. I have to put more effort to do sales offline and do another option for internet marketing.

This matter really made me sick and I always push myself for another solution and be creative. Alhamdulillah, my effort start showing good results. Honestly, self employement is not as easy as I thought before, especially when all the bills and debt are due.

Luckyly I have a gift as I can produce an art material (painting). These paintings has been posted to United States today (combined 2 paintings bought from the same person) with the posting cost of RM110.30 (nearly 2 kg weight). It is a good start for me to generate extra income from batik painting (batik lukis @ batik tulis).

This batik painting (burgundy orchid) just framed today and I am thinking of get it listed on eBay Australia for auction tonight. I really aware to open an auction @ as people try to be more careful on spending their money. Even Christmas is just around the corner, I don't want to put extra promotion for ebay dot com.

My Stonehenge Horizon original oil painting is still on auction and there is no bid while
the time left is 2 days and 10 hours. The bid starts at USD $19.99 and there were 2 person watching the item. Dunno if they are really interested or just spying. Hope the bid can increase for higher amount at the closing.

I'm doing this as an alternative of making money online, while blogging is still something that I can't find the rhythm yet ... Why I am blogging??? Perhaps I can be a millionaire through blog? Another reason to put me into blogging are affiliate program (this already paid me quite a lot! .. so far).

Istill remember the matter that made jump into blogging world is because of the goat (kambing jamnapari). The blog was created just to market the goat at the first place. Then, I was eager to generate money with Google Adsense, that forced me to setup few more blogs (free blogs using blogger platform)... One of the blogs created was (formerly known as :)

Now I'm addicted to blog and the internet while trying to market my products online.

So what is your reason for blogging?

Love to hear what you think!


  1. cubalah jual beli gunakan pound, tukaran nilai dgn ringit lbh tnggi.. usd pn dh mkn jatuh..

    blog ni untuk bg pndpt dn menulis..
    klau dpt bwt duit melaluinya.. kira rezekilah tu..hehe

  2. izzat.... kadang-kadang tak sempat nak update harga barang2 dalam stok ebay tu (ye la.. bukan sehelai dua baju / jubah).Dulu memang maintain dalam ebay uk.. lps usd naik mendadak (gbp drop, terus maintain dalam ebay dot com)..

    sekarang, pengguna ebay dot com plak takut2 nak membeli.. fening.. fening...

  3. aku blog utk duit, utk luahkan perasaan, untuk entertainment, utk luangkan masa aku dengan lebih berfaedah

  4. taukey> aku tengok ko belajar banyak benda dalam masa yang singkat tentang blogging.. tak macam aku malas nak buat research / study...
    pada aku, blog banyak kebaikkannya (kecuali orang salah guna + tak luangkanny utk jadi berfaedah)..

  5. to recover and expresss yourself perhap ...

  6. why not have a blog about art/paintings or maybe something specific about batik.

    u can sell your products and blog about it at the same time and earn from other types of advertising such as adsense and direct advertising on art/painting tools

    think about it :)

  7. hehehe. byk byk pun aku rasa masih tak cukup. hehehe. tapi kalau apa yang ko katakan aku byk belajar tu mgkn antara sebabnya itu sahaja aktiviti aku utk jana duit sekarang. macam ko susah gak. ko kena g pasar malam, pasar tani utk jual produk ko. lepas tu ada ebay, shopping cart ko sendiri dan lelong. jadi ko mgkn sibuk sikit. hehehehe. apa apa pun segala-galanya boleh dengan usaha. aku rasa ko pun byk gak belajar dalam bidang ebay dan lelong tu. mesti byk eksperimen yang dah ko buat, dan seterusnya memberikan ilmu pada ko sendiri

  8. Razifembi> that is kind of satisfaction, you gain from blogging..isn't it?

    azwan> That idea isreally brilliant. I will consider and try to do that niche .. probably in another blog.. It is just I'm lack of time to blog, coz I am running business either morning or evening (sometimes both in a day).Anyway, thanks for the smart idea. I like it!

    Taukey> betul tu.. aku memang tak fokus sangat untuk create famous blog / good blog. Cuma mempromosi produk dan juga bereksperimentasi sikit2 apa yang aku dapat daripada blogging..

  9. aku berblog lebih kepada menyampaikan atau berkongsi apa yang aku tau dan juga berkongsi kenangan serta pengalaman.

  10. Dulu aku pun ingat nak cari duit tujuan utama..
    Tapi walaupun ada tapi nampaknya sekadar sampingan..
    Mungkin nak cari populariti kot..

  11. wakakakaka. dapat ke cari jodoh guna blog? hehehe. sapa mau buat niche tu? buat web komuniti.

  12. aku cadangkan zool buat pasal dia dah populariti.. :)

  13. no prob
    i see that u hv the skills and u are already selling on ebay :), so why not.
