I keep looking for expanding my blogshelf. One of the primary sources of quality content has been the 9rules Network. I liked that it was founded on the original 9 rules and that it was more about passion than money. It is not that I am averse to money. But I believe that money cannot be a longterm motivation factor. It has to be something else that will drive the money.

So I had participated in their 5th round. Today morning I had a wide smile on my face when I saw that this blog had been accepted. I believe there are some formalities before it can become part of the network. I will update this blog when it happens.

Some of the blogs that I have learnt a lot from are already part of the network, like Lorelle On WordPress, 456 Berea Street, fadtastic, Solution Watch and more. I am glad that I have a chance to be part of something that I have always looked up to for inspiration. I will continue to be a 9rules reader, but now it is also a motivation for me to keep posting quality content on this blog.
