David actually started writing personal blog entries way back in high school and sustained his interest in it after fulfilling a photo blog requirement in college. “It was a pre-requisite for us to have a blog tapos ayun na-enjoy ko siya, tapos tinuluy-tuloy ko na. I started getting readers and then people were e-mailing me na ‘why don’t you post your outfits?’ ” David recalls. “And then when I posted an OOTD (outfit of the day), ‘dun na siya nagkick-off, so I decided to pursue style blogging.”
