TRAVEL

  • How often do you travel?

    It depends upon my mood but I prefer to travel slow – like actually enjoy my destinations without needing to rush. Every year, I try to travel to 2 international counties and 5 locally. I enjoy going back to cities/provinces that I’ve been to. Exampled, I’ve already traveled to Cebu more than 5x! 😀
  • What’s your favorite country aside from the Philippines?

    I have no favorite country but I do have a favorite city. Weird, right? Hahaha! It’s Osaka, Japan. ❤

 

BLOGGING

  • What sources of income does your blog have?

    I earn a bit of commission through Affiliate Marketing and Ads. Thank you very much for the supporting me through this! ❤
  • What would you say that is the greatest satisfaction of being a travel blogger?

    The greatest satisfaction? I’m a talkative person in nature – both written and verbal. As a blogger in general, I like that my blabbing (mostly, radnom) helps others. Hahaha!
  • How much time do you put into writing content?

    It depends on the topic (and my mood). Brainstorming usually takes most of the time – I write them first on my notebook then transfer them to my blog. I’d say 2.5 hours minimum.
  • This isn’t travel related but you said I can ask about making money online. Have you tried making money by selling products through newsletters or emails?

    The monthly newsletters that I send are purely for information and inspiration. I did monetize in the past (with my previous blogs) but it didn’t last long. Rather I stopped doing it because it’s spammy, invasive and ineffective. For details, you may click here. There are some people who hate email marketing (me included).
  • Is blogging your main source of income? How do I start a blog that makes money?

    I wish! 😀 But no, I run a printing services business in Manila.  I also have a few side-hustles.

    How to start a money making blog… Even though I’ve been blogging for awhile, I don’t think I have enough knowledge to teach. I’m sorry!

  • Do you accept guest posting?

    Unfortunately, I do not accept guest posting right now. I’m in the process of revamping and organizing the blog. I might open it in the future.
  • Is blogging your profession or just a hobby?

    Yes, blogging is my hobby. Offline, I run a business.
