Hi Jessie! This is the first time I received such an inspiring comment. Although you are quite younger than me (becoz you called me "kuya"), you have motivated me to improve my craft more.
I hope I could thank you personally but unfortunately, I cannot find your profile.
Anyway, since you are a Filipino, maybe you want to join the Pinoy Entrecard so at least I can thank you there.
Thanks really!

Hi Matt! Thank you for this information. I will check it out soon and I find it nice, and I will submit some of my articles to them. If I feel that it is worth to share it here, I will do that whether or not the ranking is high. I have done that in case you did not notice. Thanks again.

so which of those would earn me money? i'm on e-zine but i don't think it's giving me something, not even traffic, nor money

Hi Zang! Actually, all of them can give you the traffic and money you may wish for. They are on top of the line, which means that they have a wide range of viewers. However, there is what we call patience. The more you wait, the more it will not come.
Moreover, different bloggers have different chances. I viewed your blog and the posts are interesting so I think besides being patient, the right timing can also be considered.
Thanks for the visit.
