Filipinos celebrate Mothers Day every second Sunday of May. Since I’m not yet a mom, I’m going to give the spotlight to my favorite Filipino Mommy Bloggers. If you plan to be a mommy blogger (which is my goal in the near future), you should read their tips about blogging.
Kaycee Enerva of Kikay Sikat
Kaycee Enerva, known as Ms. Kat or Mommy K, has one son. They love to travel and eat! I love how vocal she is with her opinions on politics and other controversial stuff. LOL.
In 2009, she left her corporate job to blog. She used to work as a business analyst for an IT company. Back in college, she wanted to take Journalism but her mom told her that Computer Science will give them more money. I think blogging is a dream come true for her. She can use her writing skills and ComSci skills at the same time! I always enjoy reading her posts about beauty and lifestyle.
What’s the best thing about being a mommy blogger? Tbh I rarely write about parenting on my blog kasi as much as possible I keep my family life private. Pero best thing is I get to being machokid to events and adventures!
JUST DO IT!Kaycee Enerva of Kikay Sikat
Lee Rosales of Momma Lee Adventures
Momma Lee has one daughter. She and her daughter enjoy traveling to different tourist spots not only in the Philippines but also in other countries.
What’s the best thing about being a mommy blogger? Being a Mommy Blogger is being versatile in every niche in the blogging community.
Just write whatever you feel and want to share to the world. Just be honest and love your craft.Lee Rosales of Momma Lee Adventures
Nicole Paler of Chic Mix
Nicole Paler has two kids. Baking cinnamon rolls is their family bonding. The children do the mixing and Nicole does everything else. They love playing games on their PlayStation like Hot Wheels Turbo Racing and Barbie games.
She started blogging in 2012, stopped for a while, and returned in 2014 after she had her second child Rafael. She writes about women’s lifestyle and whatever is on her mind. Her blog is “Chic Mix” is a mix of things that she’s currently interested in.
What’s the best thing about being a mommy blogger?The fact that I can choose to stay at home, or sometimes bring my kids to “work” or events especially when they allow kids to participate in the activities. I have the best of both worlds but sometimes it bites me too as I tend to have too much on my plate.
Just write from your heart. Start one, and be consistent in writing even if you feel that it is nonsense at the moment. You never know where life and blogging may take you in the long run. Also, practice your time management skills as it usually takes up to 3 hrs of writing, editing photos for a post and fixing your article to be SEO (search engine optimization) friendly.Nicole Paler of Chic Mix
Lariza Garcia of Moments Around the Corner
Lariza Garcia, also known as “MamiLa” in the blogging community, has five kids. Dining in different restaurants is their family bonding. She’s not only a mom to her kids but also to other young bloggers like me!
MamiLa started blogging in 2011. She proudly writes about the art and her children. She blogs about their shows, competitions, and scholarships about art school. Now, she blogs about almost anything under the sun. She attends events and presscon that is happening around the metro. One of her favorite topics, is how to commute to a particular place or venue.
What’s the best thing about being a mommy blogger? The best thing about being a mommy blogger is to be able share your knowledge of something to someone.
To those moms who want to blog, if you have something you want to share to others that u know that would benefit them, go ahead!Lariza Garcia of Moments Around the Corner
Blogging is our new diary. There is no right or wrong on what you will write because that is your opinion, don’t be afraid to express what you feel. You never know that what you share could enlighten and help others.
Sabrina Andres of All About Sab
Ma. Sabrina Racelle D. Andres, commonly known as Sab, has one son. They love watching movies together.
She started her online diary in 2011. Then, she created a new one last April 2018 because of her passion for writing. Sab blogs about her lifestyle. She makes product reviews, and attend different events.
What’s the best thing about being a mommy blogger? It’s when I can include my son in the activities that I do with blogging, as well as being able to share my thoughts and experiences with other moms out there. It’s a fulfilling feeling when another mom gets to learn a thing or two from me, and when they give their opinions I also get to learn from them.
If your heart is calling you to write, go for it. Make time for it, but don’t let it cause you to lose quality for your family.Sabrina Andres of All About Sab
Erica Poyauan of The Girl with Muji Hat
Erica started focusing on travel niche in 2014. She found some travel blogs, lacking of details she needs so she decided to create her own travel guides. She often writes about her travels and lifestyle.
What’s the best thing about being a mommy blogger? In general, blogging has given me more time to bond with my son. As a mommy blogger, I could take my son to events for kids. This has impacted him positively.
Start now. It’s never too late.

Angelica Jose of Jellybeans in the City
Angelica Jose, commonly called as Jellybeans, is a mother of two kids: an 18-year-old girl and a 10-year-old boy. They like going on urban adventures together. I think that explains why she blogs a lot about Instagrammable cafes and art museums.
Beingjellybeans.com is her third attempt at blogging. The first was an online journal, and the second was a marketing-oriented blog. She uses her blog as a creative outlet, a way to document the things she loves about the metro, and a guide for those people who are mostly city-bound but still want to discover new things. She started as a food blogger but she’s now writing about lifestyle: budget travels, working mom life, low maintenance beauty and self-care, and even mobile entertainment.
What’s the best thing about being a mommy blogger? As a mom blogger, I never run out of content. Almost every possible topic can be related to child-rearing and parenting lifestyle. I also appreciate the recent developments in parenting such as available technology, knowledge and support that make it possible to be a parent yet still pursue other interests like my career and my blogging.
Done is better than perfect. I put off starting my blog several times thinking I should get better before I draft my first post but you just have to get your content and your voice out there as soon as you can. For those who feel intimidated at the prospect of starting to blog, remember: Someone, somewhere will find what you have to say relevant and useful. So get it out there and start helping.

They often go to the parks in BGC to run and play badminton. She mentioned that their favorite activity together as a family is going on year-end out-of-town vacations.
She started blogging in 2007 during Multiply days. Now, she writes about family and lifestyle. Most of her blog posts are about being a mother, homeschooling, being a wife and all things surrounding family life, including finances and health.
What’s the best thing about being a mommy blogger? The best thing about being a mommy blogger is that I get to share my motherhood journey with other parents. I get private messages from homeschooling moms and wives who have questions about homeschooling, parenting or marriage, and it gives me joy to help.
Stick to your priorities. It’s easy to get carried away by all the opportunities the blogging industry presents, but remember that you are wife and mother first.May De Jesus-Palacpac of Fully Housewifed
Sherile Guinto of Shescapades
Sherile has one lovely daughter. Both of them love travelling and watching movies.
She started blogging last June 2018. It has been her ultimate dream. “Before I will just post pictures of food in my IG account kasi nga frustrated Blogger. You shell out money for the food you are eating and for posting in IG,” she mentioned.
What’s the best thing about being a mommy blogger? The best thing about being a Mommy Blogger are you can meet a lot of Mommies with different story to tell and you are also learning. And you got to bond din with your kid with the events that I am attending. And sobrang pinapamper ang mga mommies.
Pursue it. Post anything kahit ung niluluto nyo sa bahay, ung anak mo and anything na pwede mo ishare kahit sa facebook ka lang mag start or sa IG. And connect to other moms and join Mommy Communities. With that maeexpose ka and mabbuild ung confidence.Sherile Guinto of Shescapades
Wendy Palomo of Wendy Flor
Wendy Palomo is a mother of two boys: 12 years old and 9 years old. They love going for short vacations whenever her husband is free. In the house, the read and play. They usually play Bingo, Payday, and Sungka. I met Wendy when I was in Korea. We belong to a group called Bloggers in Korea.
Wendy started blogging at Multiply in 2007. In 2008, she started to have her own website. She named it “My Rocking Cradle” because rocking cradle has a nurturing sound. Her posts are all about her motherhood journey, from breastfeeding to weaning to potty training. In 2017, she got another website under her name.
She refused to have a niche. “My posts is reflective of the stage of my life. I used to be passionate about motherhood and everything that comes with it when I was a new mom. then I started blogging about my volunteer jobs at my school and in the community. Now, I’m writing about places in Seoul and sometimes other countries. I’m also writing about expat living here in Seoul now“, she said.
What’s the best thing about being a mommy blogger? It’s the preserved stories that I have through my blog posts. If I hadn’t blogged about those anecdotes and stories, I would 70% forget about those happenings and funny remarks from my children.
Go for it. Blogging is a great stress-reliever. And an excellent memory keeper of your family moments. I can attest to that because that’s how I get to remember some of my sons’ funny and witty remarks.Wendy Palomo of Wendy Flor
I really admire how these Filipino mommy bloggers manage their time in taking care of their family and blogging about their lifestyle. They inform, entertain and educate their readers. I want to be like them in the near future.Travel with Karla
Since I’m not a mom yet, I’ll just celebrate Mothers Day with my mom who always supports me in my blogging endeavors.
