Maistrang Laagan Turns One: The Anniversary Sur-Prizes

Last year, June 12, 2019, I created my Facebook Page Maistrang Laagan to finally launch myself and try into this world of blogging. Few weeks before that, I bought an E-book guide from Marina De Giovanni on tips and tricks about starting a blog and learned from her some of the first important things to do. The first exercise on that e-book was to create a brand name for yourself, something that defines you and does not change regardless of time. I thought very hard on what should my brand name would be, until I decided for “Maistrang Laagan” since it defines me alot! I am a teacher and I love to laag (travel/wander), thus Maistrang Laagan was conceived! ☺️

Though they might not know, but some people/bloggers I met like Toploading for Life and Drift Stories had influenced me more to start writing. Hence, I finally decided to buy a domain for myself and wrote my first blog (my Oslob Experience) which you can still read here.

I am happy that my friend from Hungry Byaheros, had supported me, and thus gave me some of my first X-Deals here in Cebu!

Few weeks after my FB page and this blogsite was launched, I met some Cebu vloggers, the Bisaya Youtubers Club, and they have influenced me to vlog as well. Though I was always doubtful of myself because I don’t know how to edit my videos, I did try because Chasing James, my very creative, good friend, said it was easy! And so, aside from writing here in my blogsite, I also upload a video in YouTube of the same content. However, my first YouTube Channel was terminated before it turned one month old. Devastated in vlogging, I rest for a while, but I continued few weeks after, and posted my comeback video on another new channel that I created. You may watch that short video here.

Sooo yeaaah, technically, Maistrang Laagan is 1 year old today! I am very much happy to have met all of you! To the few who continue to support me, I really appreciate it! Thank you so muccch! I hope you can still support me now on my Year 2!
