When did you start blogging and who/what influenced you to do so? I started blogging in 2001, going through different platforms (Greymatter, Xanga, Multiply and Wordpress) before settling down on Tumblr. From 2008, my Tumblr blog was born but it was still under a different domain name. KISTYKREME.NET was only established two years ago, and now, I’ve shortened it to KISTY.NET.
Describe your blog. My blog is a personal blog infused with fashion, photography, travel, design, tutorials and themes. I know I should focus on one specific niche but I like it this way, I like to share things that I find interesting.
What makes your blog unique or different from the rest? What makes my blog unique is that I try my best to make the entries more relatable to my readers and followers, from fashion tips to random do-it-yourself projects.
Tell us something more about yourself like your hobbies besides blogging. What do you love to do? I like to design themes, sketch, take photos, dance, read a good book and/or watch movies. Oh, and I like to shop…. particularly for killer shoes! Haha!
How do you want people to remember you? I don’t mind if they don’t remember me as the girl with cool fashion sense or with pretty hair. I just want them to remember me as someone they could look up to.
What do you want to say to your followers/readers and your fellow bloggers? Always live to inspire and be inspired! :)

Tatie Aquino | http://fasche.org
Full Name: Tatie Aquino
School/Work: Fresh grad from UST/ Freelance stylist
Inspiration/s: Anything fascinating related to art and fashion
When did you start blogging and who/what influenced you to do so? I started blogging way back in 2004. One of my friends influenced me to start blogging since I see it as a tool for self expression. During that time, there were no categories yet like fashion bloggers, beauty bloggers, food, travel. Everyone posts about anything, not limited to the category and I enjoyed reading those blogs. Sometimes I wish blogs today stay the same.
Describe your blog. My blog is all about art, fashion, and lifestyle. I post about what I do in school (plates, artworks) and the things I do that are not school related like styling and also the events I attended. I also post about what inspires me at a certain moment.
What makes your blog unique or different from the rest? My blog isn’t full of outfit posts with links of brands. I don’t treat my blog like lookbook.nu. I post different things, I want to share to my readers not only about how I dress but also how is it to be in my shoes, or what I do in my life.
Tell us something more about yourself like your hobbies besides blogging. What do you love to do? Besides blogging, I love creating artworks. Art + Fashion is really what I am.
How do you want people to remember you? I want to be remembered as a passionate woman who keeps doing what I love. It doesn’t matter how the society looks at it but as long as I am happy and I love what I’m doing, I’ll reach my goals and be successful in life.
What do you want to say to your followers/readers and your fellow bloggers? Keep the passion burning. Whatever it is that you love doing, whether it is blogging, cooking, painting.. etc. Be passionate and keep yourself happy and positive. Do it because you love doing it.

Kelly Medina | www.kellymedina.net
Full Name: Ericson Rey A. Medina
School/Work: Colegio de San Lorenzo
Inspiration/s: lookbook.nu + fashion blogs
When did you start blogging and who/what influenced you to do so? I started my blog January of last year and at first it was just a personal tumblr account. It was not updated and I just post ramdom stuffs. Then during my OJT my friend took photos of my outfit so I decided to post it as it is, as time passes by and as I get inspired by reading other blogs, my blog evolved and turned into a fashion blog.
Describe your blog. My blog is a mix of everything but its main focus is fashion specifically men’s fashion. My blog is like my personal style diary and a diary of my random thoughts and events. I called my blog The Traveling Boots because last 2011 I traveled a lot and I’m really fascinated with boots. I really love my boots as well as traveling hence the name.
What makes your blog unique or different from the rest? I think it’s because of my body and my style. I’m a plus size fashion blogger and I believe that through my blog I inspire people. I’d like to let people know that being plus size doesn’t hinder an individual not to be fashionable. I also believe that my style is different from other male bloggers because of the colors. I really love playing with colors and I’m not a fan of black and white.
Tell us something more about yourself like your hobbies besides blogging. What do you love to do? I love to read magazines and blogs, I love to go out and hang-out with my friends. I enjoy doing DIY projects and I love to thrift shop.
How do you want people to remember you? I want the people to remember me as the plus size male fashion blogger who loves to play with colors and the one that exudes confidence even though he’s not that fit.
What do you want to say to your followers/readers and your fellow bloggers? THANK YOU SO MUCH! And please continue to support my blog J I LOVE YOU ALL!!!
