Philosophy in life: Live fast, die pretty!

Tell us something random about yourself.  I’m a 21 year old Registered Nurse who loves taking pictures of my friends and me. I am a narcissist, 5’6 in height and my shoe size is 10.=)


1. How, When and Why did you get into blogging industry? 
I’ve heard about blogging way back 2005 (I guess) and thought it was boring! Then 2006, I got hooked on Friendster, Multiply and other social networking sites. Around November 2007, I started blogging on Friendster. I remember my very first post contained struggles about my chosen course, Nursing.

2. How you came up with the name for it? 

The name was suggested by my friend Casey because it was girly! That same night, I bought the domain and started blogging there.

3. How long have you been here and what made you want to start?

Before, I was blogging at, but 1 month after I took the board exam I left it, claiming that I’m no longer a future nurse, but a registered nurse. That’s why I moved to my current site which is which is an old domain of mine where I blog about my girly thoughts. This domain is already 2 years old, but I removed all my old posts last month because I wanted to start a new blog.

4. Do you blog for a job full time? What else do you do aside from blogging? 

This is just a hobby! I do this whenever I have extra time.  Aside from blogging, I’m also into photography, I shoot with my friends and other photographers here in my province sometimes. I play the guitar and piano. I some modeling and I play volleyball too!

5. Did you choose to start blogging directly about your chosen niche or because you just saw a good way to make money from blogging? 

I started blogging because I want share how I feel about my course, then a year after, I saw some bloggers earning money from it, then I tried it and started earning from it.

6. How much time do you spend on work related to your blog(s) each week? I spend more than 30 hours on my blogs every week!

7. What do you find to be your biggest struggle as a blogger? 

Anonymous haters! I guess, I was a victim of cyber bullying too around December 2008 because I defended an online friend! Until now, I still have haters over tumblr but I don’t mind them! I love having haters, they make me feel famous. Seriously!

8. How does blogging help you, in terms of life and career? How did you get to where you are now with your blog(s)? To what do you attribute your success? and what is the next goal you hope to achieve? 

Blogging indeed helped me!
Financially, I was able to buy things that I want! My laptop, digital camera and other gadgets are mostly from my online earnings! Whenever I have extras I give it to my mom.
Socially, I met some online friends in person too! =) it also helped me develop my English skills especially my writing skills!

9. Where do you see your blog(s) and yourself in 5 years? 

I guess my blog will not just contain updates about myself, but also, updates about the family that I will be building with my future husband and kids..

10. One of the hardest things for beginner bloggers is getting traffic. What tips can you give bloggers to drive traffic to a new blog? 

Be friendly! Go and visit other blogs! Don’t comment to get a comment back, but comment because that’s what you really feel! Comment because that’s what they deserve to hear! Remember, BE FRIENDLY!

11. What advice would you give to new bloggers wanting to start blogging and help them start out on a path to success? 

Don’t think of the dollars that you’ll earn from entering blogging! Enjoy typing every word you want to publish on your blogs. It’s your online diary remember, it must showcase yourself and your daily experiences! Then you’ll be surprised, little by little you’ll start earning!  

12. Describe your blog in 10 words
Contains posts for you to see how crazy the blog owner is.
