IWB: Ansam 518

My guest today is well know for her unique experiences in food, travelling to exotic places that i wish to visit some day. Ansam is one of the leading female bloggers along with ilSul6anaTidbit Du Jour and Eleventh St that i interviewed them before. I’m very happy to have her as my guest.
Here what she said :

Why did you choose (Ansam 518) as a name to your blog?

Well my blog is called FIVE ONE EIGHT which can also read May 18th, my birthday. Ansam on the other hand is my real name.

Tell me about yourself?

Well, where do I begin? I am a very random person, and from my blog you can sense my randomness…. Well, besides my love of food anyway!

I am full of surprises too! I tend to have a “poker” face… so you can’t really predict what will come or what will I do or say next.

I love food, cooking, travel, photography, and arts in all its forms.

How long have you been blogging?

Since April 15th 2007

How many writers (Members) in your blog?

Me, myself, and I

What kind of category you see your blog in?

As I said earlier, I am a very random person… So I write about anything/everything, focusing on food, taking pictures, and travel!

How did you start blogging?

I started off by reading blogs, and I was almost always a silent reader to many! I’ve always thought I was “too cool” to have a blog and favored browsing through blogs over having one as my own.

It just happened outta nowhere! I started to comment more and more on other blogs… I felt the need to have one of my own and use it as a gateway to release and express the rush of ideas and random thoughts in my head.

I created my first blog and wanted to categorize myself into arts. Art as in conventional art, art of cooking, architecture..etc! But being the person that I am, I saw myself going through various topics! And here I am today… writing about anything and everything… and loving every moment of it!

What was the reaction of the people around you about your blog?

My very first posts were read by my family and friends. I felt nothing but full support and encouragement! It kept me going and going and going… yeah, just like the energizer bunny! Then it really was the word of mouth that got me into the bigger circle. I met so many people, and a lot of people from all over are now contacting me through my blog asking my advice in food, cooking, and travel. I try to attend to every comment and every email I receive! It’s a treasure!

What kind of marketing method you used for your blog (How’s did you prompted your blog)?

Main method: Word of mouth – thanks to my family & very supportive friends, but I was also listed on many blog rolls of other blogs, its like we are one big family on bloggersville and most bloggers I know/met are AMAZING.

I can also say that the email signature, picture watermarks, and fans got me out there 😉

Do you have any new ideas coming soon to your blog?

I am thinking to revamp it this year and have a blog-face-lift!

What do you advise the guys/girls who just started blogging?

Cyberspace is HUGE and there is room for all of us. Pick your material wisely and share it… Use, but don’t abuse!

Any last words to your readers?

To all my readers, the ones I already know, met, and others…. shouting and silent! Thank you for your love and support!
