Writing has always been my innate inclination since my high school days and being an Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW) gave me the chance to join forum since 2010. A year after, I was able to have my own website – more of an online journal of my expat life.
I wanted to explore more about blogging, thus, I sought Mr. Pamatay Homesick here in Kuwait. Although a very busy person, he still found the time to meet and was very accommodating with my questions. His answers were my first lessons in blogging. Upon his advice, I started to join community groups, which became my online school.
Learning about content writing, originality, hosting, design and how to earn blog merits among others, broadened my curiosity about the field I wanted to be a part of – social media. With Diary ni Gracia, I incorporated the bloggers slam book, almost similar to the high school slam book which my classmates answered one after the other.
The questions for blogger participants and their answers were not only informative but comprised the idea of my first book about blogging and the positive things it can do to a person. Preparing the book was not an easy ride but I persevered and I was determined to finish it – all with Divine Guidance.
After yesterday’s book launching and signing together with the Filipino Bloggers in Kuwait (FBK), this is my salute to all Global Filipino Bloggers.
