This is what I've been thinking the whole week. I have recently purchased a domain and paid for a webhosting service to get my dream news site online. Yes, at last I am now the owner of TheTimesofAsia.com! The Times of Asia is a news portal that will provide breaking news from Asia and the world. But aside from the news which obviously will be overtaken by other larger and older news sites, what will distinguish The Times of Asia is its opinions and commentaries which will be written by our intelligent editors and columnists. My inspiration on building this website is the former opinion blog turned widely-syndicated internet newspaper, HuffingtonPost.com which is owned by Arianna Huffington. A year after her blog gained fame, several companies invested on the Huffington Post enabling their editorial staff and network to expand more and their sales boosted. That is exactly what I want to achieved with TheTimesofAsia.com. The question is, will I make it? Can I manage a growing internet publication? I am only 24 years old and has limited knowledge in running a company. But I'd like it this way. I want to attain that status where people can call me a CEO or a boss of my own company which I've patiently built through hard work and dedication. After all, I have a university degree and am still learning right now. I'll never stop learning and with The Times of Asia, I know I will learn more. I am now working hard to encourage aspiring new writers to join me by contributing articles to TheTimesofAsia.com. So far, I've received several applications and I think the response is great, very positive. I have applicants from India, Thailand, Philippines, Indonesia, China, United States and the UK. Thanks to those who expressed their interest to join. You will receive a response from me within 24-48 hours and some of you may have already received it. Since I cannot afford to pay my writers now, the only thing I can guarantee them is their status as pioneer editors of this publication once it becomes famous and once its articles are being syndicated by larger newspapers and advertisement offers are pouring in. That will happen and The Times of Asia will succeed. That's what I believe. That's what I always tell myself. That I can do it, I can make it. So help me God.
