I am a lover of animals and I love to have pets at my home.
I currently have 7 wonderful dogs at home, most I ever had was 18 at one time but I gave away some of them to friends.
Recently I started collecting come fishes and trust me its a great hobby to be taking care of fishes, and watching them swim as well.
When I bought my first two goldfishes at the pet store, I didn’t have any aquarium so I bought a fish bowl to keep them.
I wanted to get more fishes but the fish bowl would be too small to keep so many fishes, so I decided it was time to upgrade to an aquarium.
When I checked out the prices of the aquariums they were a bit too pricey so building my very own aquarium would be the next option.
I was a bit timid to build an aquarium by myself because I had some doubts that it would leak or fall apart, so what I did was to suggest this to my girlfriend because she had also gotten some goldfishes as well. We agreed to build an aquarium together and see how it would turn out.
We went to the glass store and bought some glass to the measurements for a 10 gallon aquarium, watched some videos on YouTube about building your own aquarium.
My girlfriend and I used the silicone to hold the glass together for the aquarium and let it dry for about 24 hours. After that we filled it with water to test the aquarium for leaks or if it would fall apart.
The water stayed in the aquarium for over 18 hours and not a single leak nor did it shatter. The aquarium was a success. I gave that aquarium to my girlfriend and after that I made another for myself.
Want to know how building my own aquarium helped me to become a better blog?
Building My Own Aquarium = Better Blogger
Apart from building my own aquarium which worked out cheaper, I learned some very valuable things that I could apply to my blogging and how it can help me to become a more successful blogger.
Don’t Give Up So Easily
When I thought of building my own aquarium, I was a bit scared that it wouldn’t be successful but I didn’t give up there. I went out and bought the materials, watched some YouTube videos and then built it.
The aquarium turned out to be successful.
With blogging, I sometimes think that I would fail.
Did I give up on blogging?
Blogging is something that I love and I am very passionate about blogging.
Blogging is not only a money making business to me. This is more of a hobby and I enjoy blogging and sharing my knowledge with others so that they can have some success like me through blogging.
When I started blogging I had doubts that I would have this much success, just like the aquarium.
My aquarium didn’t fall apart or leaks and I am still caring for my fishes. The same can be said about my blogging, it didn’t fall apart and I am still blogging with success.
Keep Adding For More Success
I added some decorations to my aquarium and also to my girlfriend’s aquarium as well. Bought some more fishes and it was completed.
My aquarium was a success!
You noticed here that I added some contents to my aquarium.
In blogging, adding contents to my blog (just as I did with adding come contents to my new aquarium) is a must for completion.
This made my aquarium beautiful.
I wanted my blog to look great as well, so what I did was to add fresh contents to it so that my blog readers can benefit for my educational/informative articles.
But with blogging providing new contents on a regular basis is a must. This will help to keep my blog active and also gives life to my blog.
Don’t Be Afraid To Try New Things
I was scared as I said to build my very first aquarium, but it turned out to be very successful.
I have a this hurdle in front of me when it comes to video blogging. I am a bit shy to get in front of the camera and speak.
This is something that I need to over come because I know that video blogging would help me to become even successful if I started posting videos.
What I plan to do is get rid of my fears and plan a video for my audience. I wanted to do video blogging for some time now and I think that now is the time to do it.
So please subscribe to my blog and then look out for my videos.
Pictures Of The Aquariums
Here are some pictures of the aquariums that I built.

My 15 Gallon Aquarium
This post was inspired by me building my own aquarium.
What I am trying to say is that the things which you do on a daily basis, try to apply them in your blogging. Chances are that you will have some success in your blogging as well, just as I did with my blogging.
