Why I blog...

I've never really talked about how I got started in blogging and what keeps me going. So when my blogmate Annalyn Jusay emailed me a few weeks ago because she wanted to feature me in her Blog-O-Rama column over at the Manila Bulletin, I knew it was time to pause and reflect.

I've been blogging for over a year now and it still continues to bring me a lot of joy. My blogging has also evolved I guess in direct proportion to my growth as wife, mother, person, writer, blogger... I have also made and forged many friendships in the blogging community. It's amazing how God brings in new people into your life as you move along life's journey. I wish that more women would blog and discover the joys and "liberation" that it brings.

I love reading other people's blogs not so much as to find out what's going on in their lives (ok, that too) but to understand and appreciate their interior lives as well. Show me your blog and I'll show you who you are is so true. There is much you can glean from reading a person's thoughts and writings. I also derive inspiration and ideas from reading my friend's blogs. New worlds open up. New ideas born. Then of course, there is the sense of community - from other mother bloggers, Christian bloggers, probloggers and bloggers in general.

I'd really like to know more about how I can further enhance my blog. Currently I am techno-challenged and I would really love to alter the over-all look of my blog but that will have to come at another time... first, I have to get donw to the business of writing for a living. A blogger's day is never done :)

How about you? Do you blog? And why do you blog about the things you do?

I blog. :D

About fashion in the Philippines.

Why? Well, because it won't be a pain to update because it's something I'm VERY interested in. ;-)
