the adventures of yoshi

on blogging for a living…

Posted in Blogosphere by yoshi on May 22, 2011

one of the first questions i get asked by my readers (hehehe, sounds so funny, i actually have readers – i mean, like, outside of my “friends circle”), is – “how come you don’t blog professionally?”

trust me, i’ve entertained this idea numerous times over the past, what, 6 years?

although a few of my friends blog for a living, i don’t think its quite the lifestyle or career path for me. blogging is a hobby of mine. its a way to keep me connected with my friends and family as well as a means to hopefully inspire people to “get up, get out, and get something.”

if blogging became my profession, i wouldn’t have any outlet to look forward to. blogging would then become a job, and that’s just no fun.

actually, now that i’m writing and thinking about this, i could just as easily quit my job and focus on this blog and find ways to get sponsored and get funding to make a living as a “digital journalist,” hell, it would probably get me outdoors more!

BUT, i love living a “double life.” i love being a producer. i love the challenge. and i love being a part of something larger than just being labeled as a “blogger,” “influencer,” or dare i say it: “tastemaker.” (bleh!) but most of all, who am i kidding, i love the financial perks of doing what i do and working where i work =P

nowadays, i do find it harder and harder to be introduced as a legitimate blogger. i feel as if this culture has been overly exposed, leaving a sour taste in this “industry,” making it difficult to be taken seriously as opposed to saying, “hi, i’m a producer.”

be that as it may, i am still passionate about sharing my world with all of you. my opinions, my photos, my belly, my interests – all for your pleasure and for my sanity.

on another note, i love reading the comments some of you leave me and how i may have inspired you in one way or another or being able to bring you the first look at a new product. truth is, each comment i receive inspires ME to work harder and continue to put out quality posts (or random, funny shit lol) for all of you.

with that – thanks for giving me your feedback – i look forward to them! so leave me comments g’damnit!


i see youuuuuuuu….

Posted in Fashion, Interview by yoshi on September 7, 2010

a few weekends ago, i linked up with SP and crew of Swagger New York to film a 3 part video on my style – woot woot! now, uhm, lemme tell you, it was damn hard trying to figure out what to wear for this because i’m not really one to “plan” an outfit if you know what i mean? i’m one of those… “oh shit, i haven’t done the laundry and gotta find something to wear… how about this this and that?” and walk out the door hoping i don’t look like a fool.

so for the shoot, i literally closed my eyes, and pulled out some of my favorite select pieces and prayed to the gods it would all work out bahahhahaa!
