As you can still remember, I posted an article highlighting the 13 Fast Emerging Influential Filipina Fashion Bloggers And Their Blogs few months ago. Patricia Tan is one of the thirteen. To further back up that post and give more credits to their blogs and the bloggers behind them, I decided to ask Patricia few questions about her fashion blogging life. Here it is.
Questions are formatted in BOLD, while answers are in ITALICS.
Q1. Can you tell us a little about yourself?
Patricia is just an ordinary girl who loves kooky looks, but she opted for a totally demure get-up and she loves it! She can eat street foods, but she can also go to a five-star restaurant and eat foie gras!
Q2. How you first got involved in with blogging?
Actually it was Rhea Bue from bebe-doll.net who inspired me to pursue in blogging and I thanked her for that! I learned and experienced new things from blogging.
Q3. What do you find most challenging about blogging about your topic?
Actually the topic itself is the most challenging! Haha next would be the content, how you construct your sentence, the words you use. Will your readers enjoy your post? Stuff like that!
Q4. Tell me about some of the people you’ve met while working on your blog?
I realized that people has differences, likes and hobbies. We’re all unique! Even though we have the same likes but it differs on how we carry or do things.
Some people comment your blog for the sake but there’s nothing you can do but thank them for commenting on your post. Just an honest opinion:)
Q5. How would other people describe your blogging style?
I really don’t know ’cause I blog random things like fashion, beauty, foods and my randomness! But I do hope I inspire people somehow.
Q6. What do you do when you aren’t working on your blog?
Working with my camera, my pen, my notes, my little kiddo and K .
Q7 .Are you a full time blogger? How did you get into blogging and why?
I don’t consider myself a full time blogger because I’m busy with school related things lately. But I’m trying to blog 1-2 times a week. I get into blogging because of Rhea and I think, I got something to share and that’s through blogging.
Q8. How do you keep coming up with material/content for your blog? Many people struggle with coming up with different articles/posts and they only have one blog.
It depends on my mood. I always make sure what I blog is the reality. Like what I wear and what I did that day. I do struggle when it comes to what to blog ’cause I don’t like posting things for the sake. I want it to be real!
Q9. Whats your strategy with your blog in general?
Strategies? Uhm. Maybe a catchy title post and photos could catch peoples attention. Then it will go in the flow. 🙂
Q10. What’s the best thing a blogger can give to his readers?
Knowledge, Tips, & Experience.
Q11. A lot of people are interested in blogging for the money earning potential. What are some tips for people interesting in making money from blogging? What are some realistic expectations in regards to what can be made?
Honestly, I don’t blog just for the money and in the moment I don’t earn any. Maybe some tips I can share is just be yourself, show people who you really are and show them what you got.
Q12. What was the most challenging moment in your blog content development process and why?
Constructing words and grammar. I’m too slow when it comes to that. I honestly know that but, well at least I’m trying my best to construct right grammar and catchy words. Haha
Q13. What’s your take on sponsored reviews?
I don’t choose products for reviews. Any thing that was sent to me I review it honestly. Whatever the results or what will come up with the review I’ll tell people the truth.
Q14. Name some of the bloggers whom you look up to and why?
For International bloggers, Anastasia S. of Brownplatform, Kani C. of Kisforkani. For local bloggers, Laureen U. of Break my style, Camille C. of Camille tries to blog, Bernadette F. of born to bother you and a lot more. They wear clothes effortless but still they look gorgeous! 🙂
Q15. If someone was interested in blogging, what would be a few things you would suggest?
Go for it! Countless opportunities awaits you! You’ll never know. Just do it because you love it and not just for the sake.
