1. How long have you been blogging?
About 5 years, on and off. I started blogging summer of 2002 via PITAS.com (now defunct) when I was in HK coz I wanted to share my activities there without using email. You can now only view my first blog via the screenshots I took before it went down. However when I entered med school, I stopped blogging coz of the lack of time. I started back again in 2004 via http://cutieissa.blogspot.com (now http://BestDollarEarners.info) but I stopped there when Globe (yes, the mobile carrier) offered G-blogs where I can blog from my phone. Most of my 2004 and some 2005 posts are in http://g-blogs.com/cutieissa =)

Parang nobela na to ah.. And I'm not finished yet, hehe! In late 2005, I began conceptualizing a food blog coz I noticed the food scene in Davao was blossoming. Finally, in Feb 2006, Tongue Temptations (TT) went live in Friendster Blogs. This is where the original TT was "hosted". It's now in http://TongueTemptations.us ..After I graduated from med school last year and internship this year, I began updating my blogs regularly. I also set up a mobile blog at http://melissasolito.blogspot.com ..For the list of all my other sites, go HERE =) BOW! Human na jud! Hehe

2. What inspired you to start a blog and who are your mentors?
Refer to my answer above for what inspired me. I don't have any mentors, it's all ME!

3. Are you trying to make money online, or just doing it for fun?
I'm a writer at heart and blogging was my means to unleash my creative side without using paper. It was not for fun, it was to feed my soul. When I did my food blog, it was to disseminate info about the latest foodie place in Davao (now, there are many bloggers doing that). It was really never for fun to me, lol! As for money, I stumbled on it after my internship last July. And I'm just glad that I can earn by blogging =)

4. Tell me 3 things you LOVE about being online.
> I get to learn new stuff esp. techie stuff and the latest news
> Got to make new friends =)
> And now, I got to earn as well! What more could I ask for? Yeeha!

5. Tell me 3 things you STRUGGLE within the online world.
> Internet Addiction! --> tama jud ka Che! If wala koy kaagaw sa PC, asa man ko matulog ba! I'll go online forever and ever, hehe
> I notice I can't seem to finish something! I start an article but then I go surf, start another *whatever* again.. repeat.. Going crazy!!! Lol! It's like I have an ADHD/ADD
> I go crazy when there's no internet! Wahh! Think of all the opps & tasks I missed! Then there's my online employers waiting for my articles.. Sigh!
