Early Sunday Stalker Spotlight - Mariuca

Happy Easter Readers!! I post this Sunday Stalker Spotlight a bit early because technically it is SUNDAY already where she is.

I was introduced to this lovely blogger through Entrecard. Her stories were cute, and she always had such a following. I have learned a lot from her, just by how she does things. She is always very sweet and appreciative of comments, and has the largest community of bloggers she calls Mariucans. is my pleasure to introduce you to this week's Sunday Stalker Spotlight Mariuca!!! She's a beautiful little lady, inside and out. I'm fortunate to have this connection clear across the world.

**Your Blog(s):

Wishing on a Falling Star is my main blog at
Mariuca’s Perfume Gallery is my other blog at

**How long have you been blogging?: - Let’s see…back in 2006, November to be exact. I initially started with a Friendster blog but switched back to my blogger blog, which I had registered for the year before.

**Why do you blog?: - My blogs initially started as a way for me to share a little of my life with my closest friends. That was before I discovered all the blog communities out there and the many friends I made along the way. Now blogging is an addiction, which allows me to speak my mind and learn even more about not only life and work but friendship and blogging as well.

**What does your blog say about you?: - My blog beckons readers with stories about me as a freelance copywriter working from home, the hardship we freelancers go through and also the other daily stuff that comes along with my life as someone who works from home with a great passion for cats and perfume!

**What is your favorite part about blogging?: - I love the fact that my stories get heard by so many different people from all over the world. I love the fact that my blogs have their own respective fans and readers and mostly I love the support and encouragement that I never fail to receive from my true Mariucans!

**What DON’T you like about blogging?: - I prefer blogs that are well-written with topics that interest me. I am not a huge fan of political blogs and I love blogs that allow me much more than a mere glimpse into the life of the blogger, through the way they write and present their life stories and rambles.

**Does your blog personality match your offline personality?: - In more ways than one!

**How many blogs do you “follow”? - For now it’s a little more than 100 blogs.

**Do you comment?: - Ha ha! OF COURSE!!! What’s a blog without comments? ;)

**Does your family know you blog?: - Some family members know about my blogs.

**Do they read your blog?: - Not really although my older sister did comment on one of my posts last year, does that count? ;)

**What’s your favorite thing to do when you’re NOT blogging?: - When I’m not blogging, I love catching up on my favorite soap Bold and Beautiful, playing with my three furry friends Chubbs, Benji and Phoebe at home and of course, hang out with my hubby B!

**How often do you blog?: - Lately it has been a daily affair for me LOL! I wrote 34 posts in March, which is a huge leap from my usual 10! ;)

...and my favorite...

**Tell us more about YOU!! **

I am a Virgo perfectionist, which means that I take my blog writing seriously. Even if it’s just a meme or a tag, I’d triple check my words and spelling and I do actually edit my older posts! I guess that comes with my work as a copywriter, you just can’t be too careful and there’s always ways to improve your words. I have three adorable cats and a supportive husband, who has always given me support and encouragement to succeed in the blog world and currently, I am contemplating on a third blog! :)

Thank you, Marzie!! Isn't she lovely folks???

Thank you for being a stalker, and a bloggy friend!!
