What inspired you to blog?
"It was when Friendster opened Friendster Blogs when I was introduced to blogging. I love the feeling of being able to speak my mind and share my thoughts. That's why I haven't looked back ever since I stepped into the blogosphere 8 years ago."
Do you have other passions aside from blogging?
"I love reading, writing and anything I can think of. As long as it is fun, I would do and love it."

Share your most memorable blogging experience.
"I am not famous or anything. But when people across the street recognize me because they read my blog, it always makes a mark in my heart. Moreover, this year, I was able to launch a website for my fellow Filipina Muslims. It is one of my greatest achievements."

Share your blogging goals this 2016
"In 2016, I plan of expanding Hijabi Mag and writing more articles for it. Moreover, I also plan of being more serious about my personal blog, Lilpink."

How has blogging made an impact in your life?
"It widened my network, my perspective and my writing skills. Although I have always loved writing, blogging made me love it even more."

Think of one FICTIONAL character you dream of interviewing. Why did you choose him/her and what questions would you ask.
"I don't read much fiction books nor watch a lot of movies. So, can I just pick a non-fictional character? And it would be Dian Pelangi, a fashion designer and successful blogger from Indonesia. She is just 6 months older than I am, but is extremely successful in her chosen fields - fashion designing and blogging. I want to know how she did it and how she managed all the stress. :)"

Your favorite life mantra
"Nothing is impossible when you persevere and do everything in your capacity to achieve it."

My blog mainly focuses on beauty but I wouldn't say that it's my niche because I also want to explore on other things.

What inspired you to blog?
"I keep a journal and I love to share what’s in my mind so I got inspired to blog. I thought, why not share the world what's been going on in my mind."
Do you have other passions aside from blogging?
"I love art and digital designing besides blogging."

Share your most memorable blogging experience.
"I would say that my most memorable experience in blogging was meeting and hanging out with other bloggers in events."

Share your blogging goals this 2016
"1. To have my own domain name.
2. To create more high quality content without losing my personality.
3. To profit from my blog.
4. To widen my blogging network.
5. To engage to more readers."

How has blogging made an impact in your life?
"Blogging is like a blank canvas where I can lay down all my thoughts and it helps remove the cloud in my mind. That's how blogging made an impact to my life. It relaxes me in my different ways and absorbs whatever mood I have without complaining."

Think of one FICTIONAL character you dream of interviewing. Why did you choose him/her and what questions would you ask.
"I would probably choose to interview SUE of Fantastic 4.

1. What do you feel about being invisible?
2. How does it feels to disappear from everyone's sight whenever you wish to?
3. What does it feel when you levitate?"

Your favorite life mantra
"Everything happens for a reason. Things take time but open your eyes to possibilities."

Tinto, Bandeja Paisa, Aguardiente & the Taste of Medellin, Colombia (Part 3)

What inspired you to blog?
"It's my passion to write (lifestyle, feature stories) since I was young and I love photography (landscapes, black and white photographs). I wanted to continue honing my craft and have something to call my own. Since I've always dreamed of having my own magazine, I decided to begin by having my own website, The HodgePodge Lifestyle. I've also wanted to work at my favorite magazine the Reader's Digest but I never got the chance to do so. It started merely as a hobby when I was still working in media, The Manila Times and ABS-CBN Publishing; and before I left the country to work with the AIESEC international organization in Colombia and Malaysia to teach English and work in a foreign newspaper."
Do you have other passions aside from blogging?
"Apart from writing and photography, it would be singing. I pursued writing and photography after studying journalism and photography from The Manila Times School of Journalism and University of the Philippines. As for singing, I was trained vocally since high school until college at the University of the Philippines so I really thought I was going to pursue singing after college or joining a theater group but I didn't and instead continued my love for writing and photography after learning that the oldest newspaper in Manila has its very own specialized journalism school."

Share your most memorable blogging experience.
"The most memorable experience was winning the lifestyle award at the recently held Bloggys 2015 Philippine Blogging Awards. It was an honor to be recognized for my craft as The HodgePodge Lifestyle became 1 of the 6 finalists out of all the hundreds of bloggers nominated. It was very unexpected but I'm really glad to make my family proud!"

Share your blogging goals this 2016
"It's to balance both lifestyle and current events features on The HodgePodge Lifestyle; to gain more readers and followers; to have another recognition from another award giving body and to write more interesting stories for our readers."

How has blogging made an impact in your life?
"It has paved way to so many things for me and it has been quite an adventure. I've met different people from all walks of life; traveled to places I thought I would never visit; eaten exotic foods and other delicious cuisines; featured people who helped Filipinos during the Typhoon Yolanda; and so much more. It has also opened a lot of other opportunities in my career; honed my craft in both writing and photography; and I've also learned a lot about marketing, social media and IT. "

Think of one FICTIONAL character you dream of interviewing. Why did you choose him/her and what questions would you ask.
"There are so many people I would love to interview but since it's a fictional character then perhaps Professor Annalise Keating from How To Get Away From Murder as her character is really interesting. At first I thought she was  simply a good lawyer but digging deeper she has so many secrets, she is quite lonely but appears so tough but she's really great in the courtroom. So definitely it will be a very interesting and dynamic interview if she was a real person!"

Your favorite life mantra
"I've always believed in pursuing your ultimate passions in life and you're lucky if you already know what it is early on. I've experienced doing a job that I really enjoy and earning less as well as having a job that I hate but I was earning more. I must say I was very happy with the former compared to the latter basing from experiences for the past few years as a professional. It's really true that you should pursue and do what you're passionate about in life because the fulfillment you get at the end is incomparable to anything else. It's indeed very rewarding! 

Moreover, my mom and grandfather taught me to work really hard and have patience as nothing is gained quickly in life without all of these. I also believe in having a strong faith in God which was instilled to us while growing up by my grandparents who are Roman Catholic. "
