In my previous article, I talked about what made Greeting Card Designer, published by Kate Harper, thrive in the blogosphere. Now allow me to mention and talk about the strengths of another blog, this time hosted by a fellow Filipina:
Frugal Pinoy (click here to view blog)
This site is built on the premise of taking a proactive approach to managing one's finances. Blogger Celine Roque writes with the hope of inspiring Filipinos to spend less and save more as a way to get them started on the road towards financial stability.
The most remarkable thing about Ms. Roque is her not being in favor of get-rich-quick schemes. And unlike other blogs that merely focus on making money, Ms. Roque deals with the underlying causes of erratic spending habits that are particularly unique to Filipinos.
She doesn't attempt to sugar coat or soft pedal any habits that have proven to be a major setback to a Filipino's financial progress. Instead, she provides concrete steps that are feasible, and most of which can be immediately implemented.
Since Ms. Roque is also freelance writer, her many years of experience has taught her valuable lessons that she was more than willing to share. Her articles are peppered with uncommon wisdom, and again, photos are used sparingly, therefore enhancing the blog's layout.
