When did you start blogging and who/what influenced you to do so? I started my blog last March 29, 2010. But I’ve been blogging my looks all over lookbook and chictopia since October 2009. Since I find lookbook and chictopia too limited for my write ups or telling stories behind the photos, I’ve decided to make my own blog. My friends also told me to try making my own page so I could fill it up with all of my outfit photos, stories and artworks. Some bloggers like Jane Aldridge of Sea of Shoes, Nicole Warne of Gary Pepper Vintage and Karla Deras of Karla’s closet inspired by their blogs for me to try blogging.
Describe your blog. My blog is mainly about arts, fashion, people, photography and places. I put up everything under the sun. Besides posting outfit photos, I also blog the events I’ve been to. Since I have my photography class, I sometimes post some photos that I took for our plates at school. A blog is really a personal page so I fill it up with random thoughts, and stories.
What makes your blog unique or different from the rest? From the stories and photos itself, It’s already different. Every blogger has their unique touch of making the people entertained with what they’re showing or what they’re writing. I guess I just give out my own creativity to blog, I treat it as one of my plates in school.
How do you want people to remember you? I want the people to remember me as the stylish blogger on-the-go who loves what she do and Do what she loves.
What do you want to say to your followers/readers and your fellow bloggers? I would like to thank my blog readers/followers for reading my blog and keeping up with my randomness. =)) You guys inspire me to blog more. Remember, As what Lady Gaga said, “It doesn’t matter who you are, or where you come from, or how much money you’ve got in your pocket. You have your own destiny and your own life ahead of you.” Just keep doing what you want and don’t let anyone get in your way.If it makes you happy,go for it! Don’t let other people’s opinions affect you. Remember, what goes into your left ear, goes out into your right ear, don’t let it stay inside your head. You know yourself better than anyone else,you know what you can do.Keep doing what you love and do it often :)
