I will be featuring a celebrity in my blog once a month starting this month. I hope I will be successful in doing this.
Celebrity meaning someone who is well known in his/her field or whatever he/she does in his/her life. It will be a sort of getting to know this person up close and personal. What makes this person tick.
What I am planning is I will send him/her the PROUST questionnaire. A Proust questionnaire is a questionnaire about one’s personality. It’s name and modern popularity as a form of interview is owed to the response given by the French writer Marcel Proust.
Vanity Fair Magazine has this questionnaire at the back of it’s magazine that they give to celebrities to answer. I’m not sure if they are still doing that up to now.
I first encountered the Proust questionnaire when I first blogged in 2001. I remember it went around in the blogger world during those early years in blogging. Someone sent me the Proust questionnaire for me to answer and post my reply on my blog.
So, I dug my old blog from 2001 to get hold of the questionnaire. I spent the entire morning reading my old blog. Oh, my god. I ended up crying, laughing, cringing but smiling most of the time.
There is really a big difference in blogging today and blogging before.
*It was difficult to post pictures. So, the blogger will rely mostly on what he writes. Now, posting a picture is so easy that most bloggers (including me) will just post pictures and doesn’t really write that much anymore. Just a sentence or 2 to caption the picture.
*Blogging before means that you have to know to use html codes. I learned to use html codes by myself!
*The blogging world was a very tight community when it first started. Most of the people I read was mostly from abroad. From Europe, Australia and U.S.A. I followed a few bloggers from Manila. But at that time there were just a few bloggers here in Manila. And I am proud to say that I am one of the pioneers.
Anyway, after reading my old blog I promised myself that I will write more and post pictures less. I think it’s more personal that way.
I am still thinking of who I will feature first. I have already celebrities in my mind that I have lined up. The problem now is how to let them agree to be featured in my blog.
Wish me luck.
If you have any suggestions or any celebrity that you want me to feature please feel free to leave it in the comment box.
