I started this blog six years ago and a lot of traffic comes from DOTA Hotkeys. It was an amazing journey to improve the SEO, page load time, and server configuration of this blog. As a web developer, it’s very exciting and fulfilling to see a website grow and be self sustaining.
Since I became employed and got myself involved in different organizations, I wasn’t able to consistently share stories, thoughts, and ideas in this blog. This blog is a big blessing to me because of some earnings I receive from ads. So for 2017, I’ll do my best to consistently share more content not only to maintain it but to go back to my first love: Sharing.
So for my first post this year, I just want to share how this website supernaturally blessed me and other people:
Majority of the earnings of this blog goes to my local church in Los Banos. Our church helps different families and young people. We support some students in their school and I teach music every Saturday. Most importantly, we help each other follow Jesus.
This blog supported a lot of activities in the past few years for children, young people, and families.
It also supported some of my travels
and I was able to help my parents to join a conference in Thailand.
So isn’t it amazing how sharing can be a blessing? Who would have taught that a 202 kb (kilobytes) software tool that I shared six years ago continuously make a difference in this world?
