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

Rica Marie: My name is Rica and I am 28 yrs young 🙂 I’m a single mom and I’m a government employee. Ever since, I have this loving relationship with fashion. I love dressing up and prepping up during my college days. I think one of the greatest factor why I learned to mix and match outfits was when I joined beauty pageant and modeling. I also learned all the basic thing about makeup and how to wear a 5 inches stilettos. Through my greatest love for fashion, I was inspired to create my own blog where I can express and share my style. Basically, my blog was born because of my passion for fashion. 🙂.

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

Rica Marie: I think I have several blog’s name already but just recently I came up with my new blog name which is Sassy Cebuanna Chic. I was brainstorming and reading other blogs on how to come up with an ideal blog name and then I came up with this one because it is what best describes me and what I wrote on my blog. Sassy and Chic are both words that best describes my personality and my style while the Cebuanna- that spells with a double N, is a combination of Me being a proud Cebuana and a Single Momma 🙂

WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT BLOGGING?

Rica Marie: What I love most about blogging is that I can connect to as many bloggers online around the globe and be friends with them. I get to join awesome communities that inspires me more to blog and to never stop blogging. Most importantly, through blogging I can reach out and inspire others through what I wrote on my blog.

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

Rica Marie: Fashion and Lifestyle. Well mostly it’s all about Fashion, as I’ve said I always love the idea of dressing up. I think that’s the reason why I chose this niche. I just added the lifestyle since I figured out that I have to incorporate my journey as a single mom and everything in between.

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

Rica Marie: Yes, but only through paid post and advertisements. I don’t really write clients and convinced them because when I created my blog I told myself that being able to be noticed by some online stores and to send me some freebies for review, would be great already.

WHERE DO YOU FIND INSPIRATION FOR YOUR BLOG POSTS?

Rica Marie: Since I’m working and doesn’t have spare time to go out and explore the world, I guess reading different blogs inspires me with my blog posts. Actually, every time that I ran out of  ideas or doesn’t even know what to write I just have to take a pause and then do the blog-hopping. But it’s nice to go out, and explore, which I think would be the best thing to do to get some more inspiration.

BESIDES BLOGGING, WHAT OTHER INTERESTS DO YOU HAVE?

Rica Marie: Besides blogging I’m also into Dancing and some sports. I played badminton, volleyball, scrabble and dart. Since I’m also a member of our Company’s Dance Troupe, I get to express my love for dancing as well..

GIVE US 5 OF YOUR BEST BLOG POSTS

Rica Marie: Oh my! 5? can I make it 6? One per category that I’ve blogged about.

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

Rica Marie: It’s been really great! I have been part of blogging communities, was able to collaborate with different online fashion stores and yes I have received several awards through blogging (not really that big thing but these are the small things that makes me a one happy blogger).

WHAT ADVICE CAN YOU GIVE TO SOMEONE WHO JUST STARTED BLOGGING

Rica Marie: Love your work (blogging), be passionate about it, and be patient. I know to those who started blogging you have your dreams and goals for your blogs, trust me I was once there and right now I may not be a famous blogger but I have been an inspiration to some. That’s what matters most. You have imprinted an inspiration to each individual who will drop by and read your blog and even became an instant fan. I don’t have thousand of followers on my blog yet I’m happy because I may have small number of followers but most of them are genuine. They have showed me their support all through out and that’s what matters. Lastly, just enjoy blogging and you’ll never know where blogging will take you. 🙂

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

Rica Marie: This one is really difficult to answer but I think in the next five years my blog will still be in the blogosphere for sure. I am hoping that for the next five years I will still inspire my readers and will be writing my travel adventures since I really wanted to explore different places which I barely do because of work. So, Yeah in the next five years I envisioned my blog to still be running and improving.
