Hear my rants

It is the 2nd week of July. 

 Half of the year had past in a huge wave for me.

With goals that I had set this year, I am sad to say that I had accomplished 1/3 of them while  the rest are either not done or failed to complete when I gave up half-way through.

This year, my New Year resolution was to write at 3 online writing sites; Hubpages, Writedge and Wikinut daily without fail. I am proud to say that I had manage to complete this task as         of todate.

My 2nd resolution was to write at least 1 article for each site everyday but with the time  constraint, I managed to post an article for one site per day, not all the 3 sites. 

My 3rd resolution was to earn at least USD0.90 cents per month at Writedge which  means I had to earn at least USD0.03 cents per day. I can’t even hit this goal! Managed  to earned USD 0.26 cents per month which I almost gave up posting my articles at Writedge.

However, I did realized that some useful quotes did helped me to stay on at Writedge,  determined to accomplish the goals that I had pursued.

Quotes are simple phrases that famous people had once said which are meaningful,  resourceful and words of encouragement that had changed my procrastination habit.

How I Motivate Myself with Quotes

I applied useful quotes to keep me motivated, a form of encouragement not to give up easily                       after numerous failures and setbacks especially on the low earning.

I have several weak points that people tend to stab my back or tried to harm me when I let  down my guard.

Hence, at the beginning of every month, I would print out a few inspirational and useful  quotes on  an A4 paper and paste on my bulletin board, just above my writing desk. 

Everyday, I would look at these quotes that reminded me to strive harder and get back on  my feet when I was about to collapse, gave up all my hopes writing online.

My Favorite Quote

Frankly speaking, I love the no. 6 best! It is true that originality may take time to succeed  but it is far better than having succeeded being a copycat.

Writers at Writedge write their original, unique article contents which provide readers a  vast knowledge of different categories of article to read. 

Nobody plagiarism or spam each other. 

No imitation articles at all. 

I admire the Writedge team for their effort to keep  everyone oblige to the rules.
