Aside from wanting to be a doctor nung bata pa ako, gusto kong maging writer. Kaya nga I started to blog nung preparing kami magpakasal ng asawa ko. Blogging for me then was like my online diary where I post what I want, when I want.
Few years into married life, I became busy with work and our two kids. I post less frequently then eventually stopped blogging. Sayang nga, because I worked hard to create the little traffic my personal blog was getting then and I was actually receiving sponsored posts which I get paid as well. Kaya lang, family comes first.
Now, my kids are both going to school. Hindi na masyadong alagain, madaldal nga lang pareho, but finally I have the extra time to do something for myself – to write.

Hi everybody! Welcome to my blog, This Filipina Mom.
I am a mom to two wonderful boys, Johan and Jeron. I married my husband, Deck, in 2009 after being in a relationship for eight years. I have a full time day job which I love but time came when the kids’ needs are growing by the day and I wanted to stay home as much as I can to be with them. That was the time that I started this blog. It was during a time when I was at a crossroad as to what to choose – my career or staying home for the kids.
I love writing. I used to blog consistently since 2009, I even earned thru sponsored posts. I eventually stopped when I gave birth to my youngest son, Jeron. I just don’t have enough time for everything then. I was too busy with work, I have two kids to take care of at home, I have a husband who needs me as well. Writing was put in the backseat.
Then vlogging became a thing. I tried to join the bandwagon but the introvert in me is so conscious in front of the camera that I don’t see myself as vlogger anytime soon. Maybe I’ll post a few video clips now and then.
I really want to concentrate on this and go back to writing. I love books and I am in awe with authors who have a way of making me imagine that I am part of a particular scene in the book. I wish to be like that – to be able to write great content, compose sensible articles, become a storyteller that would play with your imagination. Who knows, I might even write a book someday?
So, here’s to my new journey in writing. Come join the ride with me.
