It has been twenty days since the October Redfish Rally started. I'm still as excited as day one for the said rally. I really want to do my best and win the top spot. However, at this point in the contest, I see other contenders who have as much potential and chance in bagging the top prize. No matter what the outcome is, I'm determined to do my very best. At the same time, I want to enjoy the process of growing slowly but surely on the Steem blockchain. After all, I'm in for the long haul.

Here's a little backgrounder on myself and my continuing journey:

I'm a struggling Internet affiliate marketer. I started my online journey about eight years ago. Yes, it has been that long! That was how fast time flew by. I used to run a text ad exchange program, but I decided to let it go, as it wasn't really going anywhere. The only reminder of my online journey is my website in my name It used to run on wordpress, but since last year, when I had to have a fresh start, I moved it over to Tumblr. And just over the weekend, it turned ONE! Yey!

I'm also a freelance tutor on the side, but my students have grown, and I would probably drop my tutorial by the end of this school year. That would mean a bit of a loss of extra income. Not much but it amounts to something like roughly $400 a month. For a third world country, that's huge! Moving forward, I've been meaning to get back to my freelance status as that would definitely give me more control of my time.

So now, you would probably have some idea on what drives me to be passionate about what I do. I suppose having a goal makes a whole world of difference.

I'm thankful for the Redfish Rally as it will help pave the way for me to keep growing on Steem. Naturally, my journey won't end after the month. I do intend to graduate from being a rallier to a cheerer. How do I intend to do that? By being active on Steem, posting quality contents, engaging with other Steemians, joining contests and doing freewrite exercises, among others. Yup, that's a lot! But I truly am having the time of my life doing what I do. It's definitely way better than merely existing.

In less than two weeks, the October Redfish Rally will come to an end. I'm excited for the final outcome. Whatever happens, I know that I will be able to achieve my goals. So, stay tuned for more updates on my journey. Ta-tah! ^_^

It looks to me like you're doing great, @iamraincrystal.
Keep it up.

I used to be an internet affiliate marketer too. After 15 years, I got really tired of it, though. I took my last websites down earlier this month. I really lost my interest.... Still have a dormant mailing list. I think I will keep that, in case I get tired of this place and want to go back. :0)


Thanks for the encouragement! I highly appreciate it!

It's not really easy working by yourself and for yourself, but it does give you a lot of control of your time. That's important for me. ^_^

Who knows? Perhaps you'll use the mailing list again soon! I'd love to build one myself too. ^_^


I really prefer working by and for myself. no annoying fellow workers, no boss... aah.. good times 😀


Oh so true!! That's something I would want too. ^_^
