Old School Blogging, Cymplified!

Blogging, before, was very personal and it’s about putting one’s self out there. These days, it seems that more blogs are about brands and contain applicable or practical information. Don’t get me wrong, these blogs are great for obtaining useful tricks on lifestyle & parenting, and tips on the products & services that ordinary people like me would actually use. But unless a blogger attains celebrity status, or a celebrity decided to blog, the really personal blogs are being disregarded, sometimes. That’s where memes come in, to let the readers know more about the person behind the words. It is also so that bloggers would have the chance to write about a topic they know inside and out: themselves.

I am participating in this Old School Blogging Alphabet Meme since @maanlaxa and @ChristineAmador tagged me. Here are some tidbits about me:
