It is always good to know people who will inspire you to really strive in what you want. In line with that, I want you to meet someone who truly inspires me in this career path I have which is about being a blogger.
Personal blog which aims to showcase the best of the unknown and rediscover the known! Gala ni Amal po.
TELL ME SOMETHING ABOUT YOURSELF
“My name is Amal. I live in Davao City, good enough not mention the number. I’m a police office and professional and a licensed teacher. I graduated with the degree of Mass Communication at the University of Mindanao. I’m an only daughter of my parent.”
WHEN AND WHY DID YOU START BLOGGING?
“I’ve always want to share something and inform other people about things and stuffs that’s why I started blogging. Maybe because I was a Mass Communication or being an open book is my nature. I landed in the blogging world with the help of my inspiration of Ms. Apryl Meulio of Hungry Byaheros. I joined a game on their page which made way for me to know them.”
TELL ME SOMETHING ABOUT YOUR BLOG
“My blog is about travel, lifestyle and mostly food. Actually its anything under the sun. Anything that gets my interest I put it or make a topic out of it. “
WHAT ARE THE STRUGGLES YOU ENCOUNTER SINCE YOU STARTED BLOGGING?
“Struggles are essentially the spice of anything worth doing. The thing I struggle the most was the engagement with my audience. There are time when you don’t get high responds or feedback from people. That will make you doubt if what your doing is correct or is it still worth doing but in the end I over come it.”
Again with the help of my fellow bloggers from Hungry Byaheros I was able to understand the true essence of blogging.
It is not about getting high number of likes or followers but the way you touch lives with the thing you do. Kahit isang tao lang ang nagfeedback, the important thing is you have done something different in you own medium. You are creating something significant and relevant to few. Its also a way to improve yourself. If it is challenging then it is worth doing.”
WHAT ARE THE ACHIEVEMENTS YOU HAVE SINCE YOU STARTED BLOGGING?
“Met a lot of people. Help a lot of business by both marketing and providing moral support and pictures to them hehe. Yung pictures they use it as their menus kasi or on their social media. Sometimes ginagawa rin nila akong model chos hahaha.”
WHAT ARE THE THINGS YOU DISCOVER ABOUT YOURSELF WHEN YOU STARTED BLOGGING?
“That I can contribute something in the community. I have more and I can be more. That the Amal I knew before have grown to be a better person because now she have the heart to help other hindi man financial but in other means like her blogs. At I also discovered na I have eye for photography haha. Dati kasi directing lang hanggang ang ginagawa ko when I started blogging its a one man team, from writing, photography, video editing and more.”
PLEASE GIVE SOME TIPS AND ADVICE FOR NEW BLOGGERS STARTING OUT
“Never give up and soar high. Love what you do and don’t do it just because you want to gain something or because you want to be famous. Identify you objectives and goal and enjoy the process achieving it.”
WHO ARE YOUR FAVORITE BLOGGERS?
Ms. Apryl Meulio of pinayaventures.com and Cath or escapeanddianes (pacorrect ako kung yan ba talaga hehehe). They are not that famous but the content of their blogs are deep and has a connection and relevance to their audience.
SOCIAL MEDIA ACCOUNTS
I personally admire her because of being simple despite of all her achievements. Let’s all follow her social media accounts and be updated on her travel, lifestyle and food journey.
