My name is Sarah Mallari Bucu and I am from the Philippines. I am a new blogger who just started last November 2011 and also work as a call center agent in one of the most prestigious companies in the country. I am a single parent to 7 kids, and three of them have special needs.
I have not been writing for the past twelve years, perhaps even more. But when I met a fellow blogger while auditioning for a game show, she told me to start writing again.I was hesitant at first because I know I am not that good, even thinking that nobody would bother to read my posts.
Slowly, I started blogging about topics close to my heart like motherhood, parenting, kid stuff, family relationships and friendships. I joined communities , blog hops, comment exchanges and linky parties. As I start to build my confidence, I joined blogging contests such as the daintymom.com blog anniversary where I won. And because of this I met a lot of people whose posts and stories had touched me in a lot of ways. I became a contributor at missomoms.com whose creative director, Hermine Brindak is also a blogfrog friend. I had sent an article to herword.com which was published on Mother's Day of 2012.
In less than a year, I had grown so much as a blogger. Though my stories had been ordinarily told, the appreciation coming from every reader makes it extraordinary. Thus I decided to spread my wings higher. Currently I now write at triond.com where my articles have never been published before and at expertscolumn.com hoping to learn and earn not just friends but money from my articles where I get to re post them from the different sites that I had joined.
Looking back, I realized now that the blogger friend who I had met months ago was right after all. It was so liberating to find my creative voice again but the experiences become tenfold when people, even from different parts of the world, drop by my pages and comment that they liked what they read.
This is just a short glimpse of who I am, because my work would tell it all. And if by chance you have enjoyed your last visit, I hope you'd come back for more.
