I blog stalk alot. But most of the blogs I stalk, they are people who well, wish that more will read their blogs. Mostly, these are celebrity bloggers, people who make an actual living out of blogging by a few methods, some model clothes, some do advertorials for products that they have been approached to test. Basically, I read these blogs on a daily basis (yes, I’m a no-lifer I know). There are 2 main blogs that I consistenly follow, one based in Perth and one based in Singapore. I find it interesting that even though both write differently, in a different environment, their blogs are equally as popular. Then it strikes me, it is what appeals to the readership in that particular place.
The blog that I stalk in Singapore is Xiaxue‘s blog. Known for her very direct way of speaking, and mostly not afraid of opinions, and firmly sticking to her own beliefs. Looking at her, most would not believe that that she is the author of that blog, but I am sure after so many years of blogging, everyone has confirmed that fact. In addition to her thoughts about daily life and what nots, she does advertorials as well for certain products that are selling in Singapore. Shamefully, because of reading her blog, I have now a horrendous long list of things that I want to buy back home! Well that’s cos she often reviews very affordable products that are of a good value but yet does wonders.
Or there are bloggers in Singapore who get sponsored by blogshops in Singapore, which literally means they don’t need to spend any money at all on their nails, hair, shoes, bags and clothes. All they have to do is to always wear these clothes out, blog about what they wear in while going about their daily life! I mean, how unfair is that?
There’s also Karen Cheng in Perth who is also a professional blogger and gets invited to all these fashion shows around Australia and the world. She too reviews heaps of online blogshops, and that is not just limited to Australia blog shops but also Singapore ones too.
What I really like is that they’re able to mix life and work together. You know how we always say we need to learn to draw the line between work and personal life, their jobs mix both together, formulating a fantastic result. Of course there are 2 sides to everything, can we really 100% believe what goes on online? Well, I think it doesn’t really matter, as long as their blogs continually to be interesting and continues to introduce to us products that will appeal to us. =)
