Featured Blog- Vivi’s Random Ramblings

Featured Blog #15. One of the best travel and photography blog owned by a well traveled young lady who writes about her adventures from Asia, Middle East and Europe.

Category/Niche: Travel, Photography, Lifestyle
Blog description: My blog is my diary of personal experiences and my travel tales through my pictures. I am presently celebrating my blog’s 100,000 page views, even until now it still amazes me to know that people are visiting my blog. There is something about this blog that lures people to come back and I know it’s not my words but my pictures. So I will continue feeding their fantasy through my photos.

About the blogger:

I am a CPA by profession. I’ve never been a writer but I love photography so even until now with my blogging gig, I still don’t consider myself a writer. I have a day job 8 hours a day, 6 days a week , I run an online shop (http://homefashionshoppe.multiply.com/), I contribute articles at DigitalSpidey.com, I blog when I can, travel when I have the time, I’m a proud home owner, and the most rewarding of all, I’m a daughter/sister/auntie/girlfriend/friend 24/7.

What is the inspiration behind her blog and how long has it been around?

My blog is almost 9 months old. Few weeks of blogging and I got a good review from a foreign blogger saying that I am a “well-traveled and excellent photographer “and gave me my first backlink too. It inspired me so much to continue with my blogging.

How did she get into blogging?

Blogging is an alien world to me actually. My passion for photography and travel has started as a personal thing not to be shared outside my circle of friends and acquaintances. One time I traveled to Boracay for my bday celebration last year and I met a very inspiring lady. We spent time together and I told her about my travels and places I’ve been to and she asked me how come I’m not blogging and I told her that it’s not my thing. We went out sailing one day and we had a near death experience, I had barter with God that if I survived that ordeal I will blog, so here I am... blogging!

What is her favorite blog post and why?

It would be my “Dream Big and Make it Happen” post, for someone as private as me who does not have writing skills, writing something about myself and my beginnings has not been an easy task. I was expecting “negative” comments but instead I got “thank you’s”. Even until now I am humbled to get emails and comments of thank you’s for inspiring people. It is more rewarding for me than the good comments I’m getting for my photos.

Advice/tip she can give to new bloggers to succeed in blogging.

Blog to share your passion and everything will follow. Fulfillment in doing something does not come with financial gains alone, but the rewards of someone appreciating what you are doing and being inspired by your work. So take a deep breath and show the world what you got and wait.. just wait and you will be rewarded with more than what you have imagined. Goodluck!

  41. Guys! Please feature my blog too! I am also a Filipino. 15 years old lang po ako at proud po ako na nakagawa ako ng blog. This is the link leading to my blog: http://mybadmintonblog.blogspot.com/ . It is an information blog which is almost like a website and not a blog. It is just less than 2 months old but I have done so much for it and I think that badminton enthusiasts and players will love this. Please do not consider this as spam. I just do not know how to contact you. It seems that you can only be contacted if we want to guest post on your site.

  42. It's nice to know the person behind Filipino Bloggers Worldwide. It's nice to know more about you as well.

  43. Congratulations on the feature Vivi! May you always bring your readers stories and adventures through your blog. Keep it up!

  44. I think it’s really worth of reading this blog and makes the reader more interest. And I wish I will add your tips to my future works.
