Pinoy problogger buys a Toyota Vios!

Toyota Vios.

Jumping across my favorite local blogs, I chanced upon fellow WP hacker Kates Gasis’ blog, one which I haven’t visited for several weeks now. One of his recent entries mentions Linkworth, a service better known for text link advertising and search engine marketing. Recently, Linkworth has released four new products to complement its core services: LinkPost, LinkInTxt, LinkArt & LinkDir, this according to Kates’ entry.

Worth noting though is his little side remark regarding these services, at the very last paragraph:

These are 4 new ways to earn a little online. It might be little but it bought me a brand new car.

Among local bloggers doing this professionally, perhaps Kates is the very first to buy a brand new car with his online earnings! He was quick to reply on my comment on the specific model: a Toyota Vios, easily more than half a million pesos. He’s now one of a few who publicly acknowledged buying a car through blogging, like yuga and irawan.

So what’s next for the Filipino professional bloggers?

    Hi Markku, regarding my car that I bought I’m affraid that’s not 100% true, and must be corrected.

    That car was not from blogging earning, because I must admit that ‘I’m a new kids on the blog’ :). I started blogging (intensively) not so long ago (maybe 6 months ago) and I haven’t earnt much to buy a car.

    The earning was purely from my other site that had been established before.

    Thanks

    irawan, well somehow it is still applicable as it’s from other forms of online monetization anyway. 🙂

  3. […] After reading blog post from Markku – a pinoy blogger, about another pinoy blogger that managed to buy a new Toyota Vios from selling link via LinkWorth, and also mentioned me and my lovely lancer cb5 that I bought merely from AdSense earning (and NOT from blogging ), today I decided to join LinkWorth, the Search Engine Marketing.
