Inspiring Bloggers Tag

I want to thank Pooja from Life’s Fine Whine for nominating me for this amazing tag. She has an awesome blog that is full of inspiration from her blogging journey (which is really inspiring! click here to read the first part), blogging advice, mental health posts, travel stories, quotes collections, easy healthy recipes, and so much more! I’m super glad to have met a fellow kdrama and kfood fan! πŸ˜„ She has also been very supportive, and I am very grateful! I also want to greet her happy blogiversary!!! πŸ’–

Also, a huge thank you to everyone for the love and support!

So here are the rules:

  • Thank the person who chose you.
  • Include the logo in your post.
  • Answer the questions asked to you.
  • Choose the bloggers who’ve inspired you (maximum 10.)
  • Add a feature of their blog which you admire.
  • Ask them five questions.

My Answers to Pooja’s Questions:

1. Do you prefer blogging or social media?

BLOGGING!!! Time spent on blogging is a time well spent because I am not only doing the thing I enjoy and love–writing–but also learning from other blogs and meeting other people around the world. On the other hand, social media has become a bit toxic for me, so I am taking a break.

2. What is your favourite post that you’ve published so far?

Here are my top 3:

What I learned from Working at a Fast Food Restaurant
Lessons from My Zipline Experience
What brings you joy?

Since last month, I’ve been missing my scheduled posting days (every Tuesdays and Saturdays PT). But a few days ago, I have been organizing my calendar, and hopefully, I’ll get back on posting regularly. What to expect? More posts about lifestyle, school stuffs (tips, organization, etc.), travel stories, movie/kdrama reviews, and so much more! I am going to alternate these categories every posting day. Also, my apologies for taking too long to respond to awards/challenges/tags. Please know that I will do it as soon as I can. 😊

3. What is one thing you are grateful for?

Today, I am grateful to be given another day to live and experience life despite staying home all the time due to the pandemic. Another day means another chance to talk to my loved ones and be with some of them.

4. What inspires you to continue blogging?

The love I have for sharing my experiences, my thoughts, and the things I learned–which I hope you find entertaining, useful, or inspiring in some way–is what inspires me to continue blogging. Also, the supportive community that I found myself in is just encouraging and amazing!

5. What is one thing you love about yourself?

I think being understanding is what I love about myself. I can easily open my heart and mind to better understand what someone is going through or what prompted him/her to do such things. Putting myself in their shoes also prevents me from judging them

I want to tag:

Princess from The Mindful Modus – I love her blog so much! I love the aura and it’s very comforting. Her blog is packed with helpful information. She shares about self-care, slow living lifestyle, anxiety tips, fragrance reviews, and so much more! As someone who is always anxious, her blog is my go-to. She inspires me to keep going.

Janis from The Momshie Diaries –  I recently discovered her awesome blog, and I love it! I enjoyed reading her interesting travels and inspiring personal stories such as her mom life. She’s very raw and I admire her strength and faith in God. She also blogs about movies, kdramas, and other tv series which I also love!

READ: Happy Sunday

Markus + Micah – I also just recently discovered their blog, and I think it’s wonderful! They are an inspiring couple who is an advocate of slow living and eating well. Their contents instantly captivated me as I, myself, have been wanting to live outside what society defined is a successful and perfect life. I admire their thriving life so much and how they are encouraging people to create a meaningful life and a life that you love. They also write about plants and plant-based meal ideas, their experiences, travel, books, and so much more!

READ: How to live slow and have a more meaningful life

Ave from Arts and Ave – She is an inspiring teen blogger who shares about glowing up tips, which I really love. It encourages and empowers other teens to support each other and glow together. Not only that, but she also writes about productivity, blogging, and study tips! I also want to congratulate her for recently going self-hosted!!!

READ: Self-Acceptance Tips for Teen Girls

Nadia from Forevernads Abroad – Here’s another favorite blogger! She is an expat, and she writes about her adventures and the things she learned from them. It’s fun reading her stories, and it feels like I was traveling with her. It inspires people to take a leap and explore what the world has to offer.

  1. Thank you so much for the sweet shoutout and Blogiversary wish!! I’m so glad you accepted the nomination and I really enjoyed reading your answers! I agree with you about social media and blogging. Blogging actually lets you socialize and meet so many wonderful people and it gives you much more creative freedom. Social media has become more about image and perfection which to me is super toxic.

    1. You’re welcome, Pooja! This is such a positive tag, and I enjoyed doing it. πŸ˜„ You are right! I also love how we can be raw and much more personal in blogging. And I super agree with the image and perfection! It’s easy to get swayed and fall into the comparison trap. Thanks again for this, Pooja! πŸ’—

  2. Thanks for tagging me Nath (super love these things) & thanks for the generous description πŸ˜€

    The posts that you have noted as your favorites were the blogs that have drawn me into following you, I did not immediately know that you were Filipino, nor Asian & that is something so good about blogging, one tends to like people blindly… Not because you’re a kababayan but because you write authentic stuff.

    We also love the experiences that you share! Some people like me live a sedentary life @ the office and hearing adventures from someone “actively” living her life is like an extended adventure for US πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

    1. Aw! Thank you so much, Ate Janis! I’m so touched! πŸ₯° I really appreciate this, and it’s very encouraging. I agree with you. I also didn’t know you are a Filipino, but I already like you and your blogs. I think only found out when you commented on one of my posts. Haha

      I’m so glad to have met you, and I always enjoy our conversations! πŸ’–

  4. Hello, Nath thank you so much for including me in this list. Also, congratulations!! πŸ€—πŸ€— I too prefer blogging as compared to social media. I limit my consumption because one thing that I notice is that, I feel so down whenever I use it. 😩 Anyway, thank you again for nominating me and giving out such kind words about my blog! It’s touching and encouraging for me! ❀️ It was fun reading this post and getting to know you more, Nath! Have a great day! πŸ₯°πŸ₯°

    1. You’re right! And sometimes, it’s hard to avoid comparing ourselves to others. I will probably also limit my consumption when I go back. πŸ˜… You’re very welcome, Princess! πŸ’– Will always support you and your blog!
