5 things to know in Becoming a Successful Blogger: The Blogger’s True Confession

5 things to know in Becoming a Successful Blogger: The Blogger’s True Confession

by MJ Racadio

Blogtalk 4th year Celebration from covering David Guetta to interviewing Golden Globe Awards Executive Producer.

After four years of hard-work and perseverance, Blogtalk with MJ Racadio produced hundreds of inspiring episodes, from podcasting to live broadcasting (vlogcasting) and one-on-one interviews. I have no idea this blogging thing evolve by itself and brought me to red carpet in Hollywood to high profile events like Miss Universe and covering David Guetta’s concert in Manila. It all began in my bedroom last April 2014, I’m sharing this information in how to become a successful blogger. Here are five things you need to know from experience.

  1. Know your passion and vision. First, you need to know what you wanted do and know you’re purpose. For example, blogging about the fashion industry, think about what ways to do it by reading and emulating other fashion bloggers and observe fashion shows and you go from there and how you will inspire others with your vision. Importantly you should know how to use the social media in your advantage. Later on in my other blog, I will discuss branding.
  2. Positive thinking and being pro-active. Second, thinking positive is the key for you to go on no matter what the barriers in pursuing what you love whether it be blogging about food or travel. Keep in mind that being pro-active is also as important being positive because allows you to keep moving forward despite negativity around you and keeping track goals in a daily basis.
  3. Ask, if you are afraid to ask learn how to do it. Third, how would you know without asking, right? So, you need to asked if your target topic or subject to be part of your blog or vlog. Nothing to lose when you asked.
  4. How to get response from an influential person. Fourth, here is the fun part, I have been rejected hundred times but there is one thing to share when I got the one big yes. One day, emailed an influential person to be part of my podcasting, she responded and said yes. I was shocked and blown away because I have written a short message and added his or her title next to their names. In addition, I made it clear about the time, date and purpose of the message.
  5. How to be famous right away. This is my favorite because all you have to do is take a selfie or photo together with influential person and you will create the rub-off effect, which you needed credibility when starting a blog or vlog. People will trust you and you become that expert.

Fellow friends, hopefully this information just shared will help you get started in blogging, podcasting, vlogging world. The next blog will be branding.

Celebrating 3 Years I Season 7 Finale I Best of Blogtalk

Best of Blogtalk I Celebrating 3 Years I Season 7 Finale.

by MJ Racadio

(Quezon City, Philippines), April 25, 2017. It has been a long journey for me as a blogger then publicist. I can never imagine in my wildest dream to reached three years this week. First and foremost, I thank our almighty God for giving the life strength and knowledge and the people behind this so called little show called blogtalk, especially Mariebeth Racadio, friends and relatives and loyal followers.

From blogging in the bedroom to Miss Universe red carpet. It all started from simple blogging tips including fitness, time-management, health and wellness. Taking it to the next level by inviting known and influential guests and the rest is history. Here comes the hard part being a blogger, especially moving to Los Angeles was a big risk. Luckily, I was able to connect with the right people and of course fellow media/ press people, they either hate or love you. The first two years was always a challenge because people may look at you weird, when I say I’m a blogger/publicist. After the Hollywood experienced, I got stronger and wiser in choosing friends and what not to say.

Moving to the Philippines was sort of icing on the cake, it seems like never left the United States. I have yet to become a segment producer for Eagle Broadcasting Corporation, entertainment reporter and morning show host of ‘Pambansang Almusal’ oh boy, I have to worked double time from waking-up 5AM to evening for Eagle News International Showbiz segment. As entertainment reporter, was able to cover Selena Gomez to 21st French Film Festival. One of the most unforgettable interviews were Jaclyn Jose, Asia Pop Comicon, Ambassadors from other countries including France, Japan, South Korea, Brazil and Netherlands.

Early January, the most famous DJ in the world David Guetta had a successful concert in the Metro, plus I have watched and reviewed a Hollywood Film ‘Sleepless’ starring Jamie Foxx, the movie (Story, Cinematography, Acting were superb) was a suspense thriller so I loved it.  Here is my story for Miss Universe, first of all, I asked a friend from media how to apply for credential, his name is Jude Cartalaba, thankfully he directed me to Chavit Singson’s publicist so she sent the link where you can apply for Miss Universe. After a week, Miss Universe Organization approved Blogtalk to cover the live and pocket of events of Miss Universe. I still could not believed that it did not sink in until now, when people found out that I was one of the official media/bloggers of Miss Universe, people raised eyebrows and say “OMG! you are famous now”. Finally, it all boils down to hard-work, perseverance, be grounded and do not give-up on your dreams. In addition, you should know your purpose and be nice to people you meet and you will never know they can jump-start that dream of yours.

Where Pop Artist meets the Indie Band

Are you into Pop or Alternative music? Social Media is so powerful indeed because came across with this band name #Red, think Maroon 5 meets One Direction. These group of young adults are friends & located in Northern Philippines in Baguio City, they got together & performed all over the place from school to radio show. It’s really interesting to hear an Original Pilipino Music called ‘Dalawa’ (Two) perfect for Telenovela. Red is currently working in the studio for upcoming international release under MGR Records.

Are you ready for another Pop Act? Guess What? met this talented individual from San Francisco Bay Area, think Bruno Mars meets Stevie Wonder. Finally listened to his music and was blown away with the amount of talent & and dedication of Rius, his definitely has come a long way. Performed all over the place from private functions to big venues. Watch out! for Rius Re-packaged Album & Live performance in your city.
