We all love to travel but circumstances hinders us from doing it. Traveling not only allows us to discover new things but it also allows us to emancipate and have an intimate moment with yourself.

Our next featured blogger for this week is a certified wanderlust. He is a well-traveled person who has been exploring the sights and sounds of not just local travel destinations but also places outside the country. Let’s get to know more of Ian Limpangog, the itchy feet behind the Freedom Wall

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

Ian: Well, I just love the white beach, the blue sky, and green massifs. Seeing those three together would be perfect.

I also appreciate architectures that stand through times, and is very interested about their stories. This would probably answer why I choose travel as my primary niche.

I started blogging in 2009 and I wrote almost everything under the sun. It was only in 2012 when I decided to settle on travel blogging, and became really serious about it only in 2013.

I do technical documentation for a living and I’m doing it for more than 5 years now

WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT BLOGGING?

Ian: Receiving comments and compliments for the random assistance I have in my articles makes me feel a lot better.

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

Ian: As I previously said, I chose travel and everything related to it, such as food and accommodation reviews.

Getting to different places is a continuing education. You will develop a strong sense of cultural acceptance and religious tolerance. You’ll also find environmental preservation as one of the first items to consider for every community development.

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

Ian: Monetizing the blog is the only way to keep the blog online. I am subscribed to an expensive hosting so I have to find a channel to make my blog sustainable.

HOW WAS YOUR BLOGGING SO FAR? HAVE YOU RECEIVED AWARDS AND RECOGNITION SINCE YOU STARTED?

Ian: I am enjoying it but I still have nothing to brag so far, thus I prefer to stay under the radar.

WHAT ADVICE CAN YOU GIVE TO SOMEONE WHO JUST STARTED BLOGGING

Ian: IBlogging needs your passion and focus for you to develop your brand. Select a niche that you think you are good at and then build from there.

LASTLY, WHERE DO YOU SEE YOUR BLOG IN THE NEXT FIVE YEARS?
