11 Answers to 11 Sunshine Questions:

Why did you start your blog? What do you want others to get from reading your blog?

It all started when I got pregnant last year. Here’s what happened, I was working in an office for Legal Photostat Services, the kind of business I was in, is always laying off people because it is not a consistent business.

I got laid off when I was five months pregnant, and within that month, I received my nursing License, but I didn’t bother looking for a job because I don’t want to start working and then leave again after a couple of months. So I thought, why not just stay at home and enjoy my vacation and pregnancy? Haha.

I love tech stuff, and I research and watch a lot of things. And then, next thing you know, I got into blogging. Here I am, thinking of blogging about my life so I can inspire and share my knowledge where I’m good at to people. And now, my career is changing from nursing to blogger. Well, JK! not yet, but would love to be a stay at home mom and just work from home and take care of my family.

If you ask me what you will get from reading my blog, my answer is… What you will get from my blog is an inspiration, guides, knowledge, and you can learn from my bad or good experiences in life. It will help you with your struggles from parenting, mom life, health, relationship, or even blogging.

If you had to give your personality a color, what color would you be and why?

Yellow! WHY? It’s a happy color! Like the sunshine blogger award color. I love to surround myself with happy people, and that’s what our family is all about! Be happy and live life.

Do you have pets? Are you a dog or cat person?

Nope! I used to; I used to have a husky. Probably when we get our place then will get a pomsky. My husband is allergic to cats so we can’t get a cat.

Tell me a little bit about you and your family?

Oh! there’s a lot to share. Here’s our Love Story Testimony. There are three of us now. My son is 1yr and 6months, and he is the joy of our family. My husband and I have been married for three years. We love to go out and do something; we can’t stay home haha. Oh! And also, we are in the process of moving from LA to NV. So, will see how it goes. We have so many plans and were just taking it one step at a time.

What is your favorite drink?

I love the coffee from Lee’s. I also love matcha tea 🙂

If you could give one piece of advice to a new blogger, what would it be and why?

Just do it! If you have a regular job and you want to start a blog, then you should and you can. Also, my advice to you is to get the best of the best products/services. What I meant by that is you don’t have to start with a free blog. I say that because if you decided to get big on blogging, you still going to need to get a self-hosted site anyway.

Then, why not start right from the beginning, so you don’t waste your time. Your regular job can support the little blogging fees and soon, you will get paid for all of your investment and hard work.

For me, I treat my blog as a hobby that I love, and I take care of what I love. And, I don’t mind paying for my hobby. People have more expensive hobby than mines. So, Don’t feel bad and just do it, love.

But, if you know for sure that you just want to share your life experience and not looking to make money through blogging, then use a free blogging platform.

What is your favorite thing about yourself?

Hmmm.. Well, what I love about myself is that I work hard and I don’t give up that easy.

If you had to choose one meal for your last meal, what would you choose and why?

In & Out Burger and their animal style fries haha. It hits the spot.

What are some of your hobbies other than blogging?

Photography, planners, and I make/design my planner stickers.

Did you have someone help you when you first began blogging, and if so, who?

No one helped me. I learned through researching and trial and error. And after a year, I started purchasing courses from Suzy and Elna.

What is one of your dreams?

My dream is to be a stay at home mom and making money from home. So I don’t have to work for others but myself.
