I must be mad for doing this! Having a website is 10 million times more challenging to sustain than a blog! But like most dreams, sometimes we have to push ourselves and test our limits in order to see them come true in front of our eyes.
Yes! I have upgraded from my beginnings as a blogger to having a full blown website! It really is a dream come true. I’ve had a vision as early as 2002 of having my own website. In fact, Metro magazine (thanks to Ms. Thelma San Juan) did a feature about it. It’s been a while since that magazine feature came out, so basically this website has been NINE YEARS in the making. Nakakaloka, di ba?
Almost a decade later, here I am finally welcoming you to the dream… and let me just say, it has been a long but beautiful journey.
Ever since I’ve started as a stylist and personal shopper, it has always been a thrill of mine to share my new finds, advice, and experiences. I think it’s mostly my motherly instincts! I’d like to think of myself as a “mompreneur” and every day I need to balance being a mom and wife with my career in fashion. I know that everybody is looking for that balance through motivation, inspiration, and guidance, and I myself have needed these many times through my life. This was the drive behind everything I did, and behind starting my blog.
I was NEVER a techie – in fact, making my first blog was a challenge to myself to face my fear of the www. I have already been writing for several publications including Philippine Star’s Allure and Philippine Daily Inquirer’s Lifestyle Section, but the internet was taboo to me. My first blog, Mabuhaygirl, was my first step into the blogging world. My good friend KC Concepcion had pushed me to try Multiply and then stuck at home one day, during the height of typhoon “Milenyo”, I wrote my first blog… 10 times before I could even post it! Haha!
Fast forward to 5000+ blog entries later, I moved to Welovejenni, my second blog at Blogspot just at the start of this year 2011. I was blessed with so much support, and my beloved madla of shoppingeros and shoppingeras shot to the roof! DIZZIZIT! There is no better time than now to start the website!
SO here we are now – my new home in the web. And the new tagline?
LIVE STYLE. (Paaaak!)
Yes, dahlings… I encourage you to live style, and this website has everything you need to do it. It has everything from food to gadgets, fashion to family, even an advice column, a feature on my amazing readers, and an online store. Like I’ve already been doing in my blogs, this website has more tips, more features, more giveaways to make your lives more fun and fab!
So here we are, and like the first time that I wrote that blog, I am super excited to share this new venture with you. I would like to thank my graphic designer Mia de Lara of mobudays.com and Online Strategist, Dart Tiglao for making this fabulous website! To my sponsors who believe in me and share my vision, you guys rock! Of course I wouldn’t have gotten here if not for my family who grounds me, friends to support me, and readers who inspire me everyday. THANK YOU. This website is for you.
Again, I would like to welcome you to jenniepperson.com – the fruit of my dream, and the beginning of yet another beautiful journey. Enjoy!
