Greetings Barbarians! Long days and pleasant nights!
It has been a wild April, the Government extends the lockdown in our place until the 15th of May. I already miss going out and opening up the shop. I’ve prepared well for the lockdown but I won’t deny the fact that this hurt our finances.
Finances aside, April went great. It allowed me to focus on things that I’ve always wanted to do back then as well as other things that needed my attention. It has given me time to reflect and plan my approach to things. Despite the lockdown difficulties, I tried to put my time to good use and had fun with it too.
But before we continue, please like and subscribe to this blog. Better yet, why not sponsor the blog? One of the great things I did this April is that I finally took a step towards monetization via Patreon. Patreon allows me to somehow earn money from writing by taking patrons to assist me in my blogging.
Are there special perks that I offer to patrons for signing up?
Of course! Right now, I only offer the “Official Patron” package for $3/month. Yes, for a price of a tall caramel macchiato you could be an “Official Patron” which includes:
- A personalized thank you video
- A month-long shout-out in all my post (Great, if you want to promote your blog)
- A monthly Q&A session
Please check my Patreon page here.
Don’t forget to like and subscribe!
Special thanks to the following:
So, what happened this April? First, I took a lot of pictures to pass my time. I’ve always wanted to learn photography so I spend my time reading a book about it that I bought at a surplus. Photography is a great hobby and in my case, an essential. It is always great to write words accompanied by pictures. I used things around the house as my subjects, especially books.
I also found out that fried rice is a great quarantine food, it’s cheap and you could use anything from the fridge. I used canned corn, frozen peas, ham, eggs, leftover meat on my fried rice. I’ve tried it with barbecued pork belly, grilled chicken, and roasted chicken. There are countless ways to prepare it.
My daughter discovered how awesome a grilled cheese sandwich is. She has been wolfing it down left and right, along with some fruit juice. It’s always nice to join her in her food adventures, she’s such a picky eater and won’t try things.
I’m also trying to get my hands in becoming an Online English Tutor. It’s a smart career move on my part since I’ve been focusing on writing a lot these days. I hope the interview and the practical exam will go smoothly. I’m desperate for work these days and I can’t wait to have one again. I need money to invest in things to make more money.
