I often ask this question to myself. Is it because I want to make it as a profession, passion for writing perhaps or do I simply want an online diary?
When I started this blog - Honey's Haven, back in the last quarter of 2010, I was merely documenting my life events online. As I continued writing, it became a part of my weekly routine - post a blog or two. Before I hit my first year online, I had to stop due to a pregnancy issue. I was just starting to attend events and gaining friends from the blogging community. With a heavy heart, Honey's Haven was offline for more than 2 years.
Come mid 2014, I visited my blog for I've missed it so much. Then it struck me. I can go back to blogging and this time, it's for good.
Why do I blog?
I blog because of my passion to write about food, travel and to share my experiences as a mommy/wife to others. Furthermore, I want to take my blog to the next level. The best way to achieve this is to learn from the experts. This is why I decided to participate in the upcoming Professional Blogging Summit.
In partnership with #dpop, this half day, by-invitation event will be held at A Venue Mall Makati Ave, Makati City this Saturday, 18th of October, 2014 at 1pm.
