Featured Blog - The Official Website of Stef dela Cruz – Doctor, Blogger, Writer

Featured Blog #11. FBW is very proud to present to you the featured blog of the week. We all talk about quality content and well written blog, well, here it is. The author behind the blog, was one of the seven bottom-liners for The Bottomline with Boy Abunda, aired last week on ABS-CBN.

Blog Name: The Official Website of Stef dela Cruz – Doctor, Blogger, Writer
Category/ Niche: Health/ Medicine; Blogging/ Writing
Blog Description:
This is the official website of Stef dela Cruz where she writes about her experiences as a doctor. The website also features health articles and updates on important health issues, such as obesity and cancer. She also throws in useful tips on writing and blogging. Here, she lays down the cards about the politics of medicine and blogging.

The blog has a Facebook page where Stef updates her friends, colleagues, fellow bloggers, and her blog’s readers. Feel free to like her Facebook page – she will appreciate every vote of confidence.

About the blogger:

Stef dela Cruz is a writer. She is also a licensed nurse and doctor, having graduated Cum Laude in both degrees from the University of Santo Tomas. She is a Dean Bacala Academic Excellence Awardee at the same university. She received the Youth Leadership and Excellence Award from the Junior Chamber International (JCI) Philippines when she was twelve.

Stef has a black cat who is proud to have her as his human, but she is a dog person by nature. Her advocacy is to spread awareness about cancer through her writing. She also believes in promoting Filipino pride through her newspaper column.

What’s the inspiration behind the blog and how long has it been around?

The blog has been around for just about four months. Stef’s life reads like an adventure book – writing about the challenges of becoming a doctor and working as a writer-columnist brings out many of the lessons she has learned the hard way.

How did she get into blogging?

By accident. Stef has blogger friends who encouraged her to get her own blog. And the rest, as they say, is history.

What is Stef’s favorite blog post and why?

Stef has marked two blog posts as her personal favorites: Blogger Attitude Check, an article that encourages bloggers to look at the mirror long and hard before they start typing away on their computers, and General Practice: Doctors’ Stigma?, which discusses the prejudice Filipinos have against general practitioners in the Philippines.

Both have become her top picks because they require a call to action, urging people to rethink their beliefs, asking Filipinos to open their minds a little wider. And Stef wants nothing more but to provoke thought and evoke emotion through her words – it is a change for the better that she is after.
