My Blogging Journey

I started blogging mid of May 2010. Scoop and Snap is not the original name of my blogsite. It was Charms Around. This blog became my baby for a year before I decided to buy my own domain. Later on , I venture on creating another 2 blogs of different niche. 

Why do I blog? Well, better to say my thoughts in writing than loose my sanity of doing nothing. Plus, what will I do with loads of photographs my husband and I have taken during our trips here and there? Better share them, right? 

Scoop and Snap is basically a travel and photography blog. The name of my blog says it all, "there's a scoop in every snap".  I try to the best of my ability to share the story behind every picture I shot. If words don't come out so easily, well, I will just let the picture do the talking. Just like my first blog post, Powerscourt Gardens

As I mentioned above, I registered two more domains to feature two different niche that I love 1] food (Luto Ni Nanay) and 2] health (Pinoy Pharmacists). The food blog is my kitchen adventure and love for food. While the health blog is sharing what I know on health and medicines as a Pharmacist as well as reconnecting to all Filipino Pharmacists worldwide. The positive feedbacks I received from my readers inspire me to keep going until now (even if I'm not very active recently). 

Advice to New Bloggers

Who said blogging is easy? No, it is not. But do not give up so fast. Your patience, courage and determination are needed to succeed.

Love and Marriage

Being married for more than thirteen years does not make me an expert to relationship and family. But it is certain that those years made me the better person I am now and I hope that it is the same with my husband. I personally believe that keeping your marriage healthy, sparkling and smooth boils down to open communication and plain understanding. Aside from these two factors, there are other ways to keep you tied up to the man or woman you say "I Do".
