Following on in my Meet The Blogger series, today I am introducing you to Karla who blogs over at Travel With Karla

.

TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF?

Hi! My name is Karla. I live in the Philippines. I’m an English Proficiency Guide. I teach strategies on how to pass the TOEFL and IELTS.

WHY DID YOU START BLOGGING?

I started blogging in 2010. I remember that I used it as my online journal. In 2016, I decided to have a formal travel blog. That’s when I started www.travelwithkarla.com – It’s the blog where I put all the information and tips about traveling in Korea. I blog to immortalized my experiences and to share them to other people who wants to travel too.

HAS YOUR BLOG CHANGED SINCE YOU FIRST STARTED?

Travel with Karla started as a travel blog. After a couple of years, some companies send me products to be reviewed. In addition, I also got invited to some events. That’s when I decided to change from travel to travel and lifestyle blog.

WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR FUNNIEST MOMENT SINCE STARTING YOUR BLOG?

It’s funny that people don’t really call me by my name now. My friends, relatives, colleagues, now call me Travel with Karla, the name of my blog.

HAT HAS BEEN YOUR WORST MOMENT SINCE STARTING YOUR BLOG?

Just last month, I decided to transfer my domain and hosting to another company. My site was down for more than a week. My followers kept on sending me messages asking if I was hacked or what went wrong.

WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO A NEW BLOGGER STARTING OUT?

Find your niche. Blog with all your heart. Avoid mediocrity.

WHAT SURPRISED YOU ABOUT BLOGGING THAT YOU DID NOT REALISE BEFORE YOU STARTED?

I didn’t realize that blogging will give me lots of opportunities. I didn’t know that it can be a secondary source of income.

WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO IN YOUR SPARE TIME?

I enjoy watching Korean Dramas. Also I volunteer as a teacher in a marginalized community. I teach them on how to avoid online exploitation of children.

IF YOU WON THE LOTTERY WHAT WOULD YOU DO FIRST?

First, I’m going to give 10% to the church. Second, buy insurance policies to my family members. Third, invest on a business. Lastly, travel the world and blog about it!

WHO IS YOUR BLOGGING HERO AND WHY?

I don’t have any specific blogger in mind. I think bloggers are unique in their own way.
