Scrolling through Instagram, I have realized how people have become more expressive in using photographs to capture almost everything under the sun from simple OOTD pictures to marvelous unfiltered photos of the horizon. As I skim to find yet again another inspiration for a blog post, I came across some accounts of budding photographers, bloggers, and influencers. And then their feeds brought me back to my first day. Again, I was taken back to the times when I just had to settle for the device I got without a DSLR or a mirrorless cam yet but still, I continued to take snapshots of every single thing I find peculiar but fascinating. Driven by my passion to view different perspectives and angles of the world and the society I am in, I have explored not only photography, but also writing, blogging, and travelling.
As a way to reminisce on my blogging journey from day one up until now, these are some of the promising people and emerging accounts that I find most inspiring as they are the ones who made me ride on a feels trip as I took a trip down memory lane. I believe that every one of us has his or her own potential, and it is just up to us to act on it and be the better version of ourselves. In reality, one does not start as a famous blogger and influencer because one should go into the process of getting their craft known first then he or she must have the perseverance to continue doing it whatever the obstacles are ahead. I also had my fair share of ups and downs, of triumphs and downfalls, and of validations and rejections.

Tagged on some of the photos of growing bloggers are both starting up businesses and already established brands, and I remembered how I started working for the first few brands. Then it went from one to more than one and much more and to the current number of brands that I’m working with now. But the real thing is behind the fulfilling job are not all rainbows and butterflies and happy things because struggles and hassles and problems can’t be avoided. As I saw the conjured facades of these starters, I remembered myself in some of them. I admire how these people are trying out new and creative ways in presenting their lives, in portraying the things they see, and somehow, in the way they see things and perceive life in general.

Seeing how blogging and social influencing in the country are starting to reach their peaks, or I guess I can say, golden era, I am much more excited for what is in store for Filipino bloggers and influencers. This is to say that there is so much more in blogging and being a social influencer than the brands we advertise or the places we’ve been to. This is to acknowledge that as I look back to the Deegee from day one, I also recognize how I can never be where I am today without the help of my followers and supporters. And with this, I dedicate this blog post to some of my followers and budding social influencers who try to inspire and motivate others no matter how far their reach can get.
Now I want to share my Top 20 favorite accounts that I saw online thru my ( Notification, Comment section and DM ) Swear! They need some exposure and must you follow them because of their well curated and unique styling in their feed.
