When I decided to take blogging seriously, I searched for online modules that would teach me how to approach blogging in a perspective that is according to my values. I know that I want to blog with intention and passion. Thankfully, I found a series that talks about blogging in a more meaningful perspective.
I went through ALL of the four parts of this series in an instant! I was like a hungry kid gobbling down every morsel of knowledge that I could get from these modules! After which, I told myself, “Wow, I want to learn more!” That was when I contacted Martine De Luna to seek for her expertise. I am thankful that she lovingly welcomed me under her wings as she coached me not just about blogging – but about life as a whole.
One of the things that I appreciate in the Make it Blissful is that the members of this community encourage, support and help one another. Because of this community, a lot of collaborations were built. We empower one another to be empowered. Of course, we acknowledge life’s imperfections, struggles, problems, yet we choose to see the silver-lining in every situation.
Martine acknowledges the power of positive community. One of her dreams is to share the ‘make it blissful’ community to as many people as possible. Hence, BLISSMAKERIE was born.
The Blissmakerie was launched last December 2014. It was a gathering of lovely individuals who have worked with Martine through blog coaching, workshop, collaborations, etc.
It was definitely an afternoon of BLISS – wonderful people, insightful conversations, good food, beautiful ambiance! It was truly an event worth remembering!
The first Blissmakerie was not open to the public. So when Martine asked me if I am interested to collaborate with her for this year’s Blissmakerie, I became ecstatic! (giggles!) This year’s Blissmakerie is a work of love and I’m grateful to be a part of it. I am glad to work with these wonderful women who are full of grace and passion. Carmel and I are both blog coaching students of Martine while Rikka is Martine’s social media manager for Make it Blissful!
