TELL US A BIT ABOUT YOURSELF AND HOW YOU GOT INTO BLOGGING?

Cheryl: Hi, I’m Cheryl, a self-proclaimed Miss Universe. 😀 A dancer at heart. A VS angel wanna be. A dreamer. And a WAHM.

I used to blog with WordPress. The free one. I wrote poems and stories to express my love to someone who was nautically miles away. Then later decided to just keep the relationship private and decided to delete the blog. But since I could not afford to lose the friends I gained, I created Goddess In Disguise.

WHERE DID YOU GET THE IDEA OF YOUR BLOG’S NAME?

CherylThe name Goddess In Disguise came from the thought that even an ordinary woman has a lot a show. Which is why I didn’t use my real name at first. I originally wanted to not reveal who I am until I realized hiding in a screen name made my blog so unreal.

The idea of the name used to be just a word of a mouth back when I still pose for photography. Friends told me how amazing it is for me to be able to transform myself into someone I don’t look like everyday. It is more like how an ugly duckling turned into a beautiful swan.

WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT BLOGGING?

Cheryl: Everything. The virtual friends turned real. The interactions with readers. The freebies. Hahaha! Who doesn’t love freebies anyway! But of course, blogging is a rescue to my imaginations.

Oh, and the free beer and stuff too.

WHAT IS THE NICHE OF YOUR BLOG AND WHY DID YOU CHOOSE IT?

Cheryl: It is a personal STYLE blog. Why? Simply because I love fashion and it has been a part of my everyday life since the younger years but I don’t want to just tacle on it alone. A fashion blog and a style blog is different in so many aspects. I chose personal style because I also wanted to share my experiences with anything beauty, as well as my travel documentations.

ARE YOU MONETIZING YOUR BLOG? HOW DO YOU MONETIZE YOUR BLOG’S TRAFFIC?

Cheryl: Yes. Through sponsored posts, mostly. But I also earn from advertisements.

Cheryl: Besides blogging, I’m a full time mother of one. And most of the day, if I’m not in the room playing with my son, I am experimenting the beauty of photography through my point-and-shoot camera. I always find it relieving to be able to capture a one of a kind photo.
