Disclosure Policy do you have one?

Mood: Grr.. I have an ear infection

If you've just visited my newly revamped blog, you realise that on the top left corner is a tab labeled Disclosure Policy" So do you have one?

First, I bet some of you are going to ask what is it?

Well a Disclosure Policy in a nutshell is basically your policy and beliefs on how you blog is ran and you're telling everyone who reads about this, i.e. TRANSPARENCY to your readers.

Then you're probably going to ask, why the heck do I need one?

You don't, but as a blogger, it helps you, especially if you are paid to do advertorials, or feature ads, like Nuffnang. It tells your readers:

1. What type of blog your blog is.

2. Whether you accept paid advertisments. (Duh!)

3. What type of advertising you do and if you clearly state that certain posts are advertising.

4. Whether the advertising you do are your own opinions and beliefs about the product.

5. If your blog contains a conflict of interest like you're paid to advertise something which you don't advocate for.

Apart from that, it gives your blog integrity and your readers trusts you.
Also it pays to be ethical.

So what are you waiting for? Get a disclosure policy now!

Don't know how to create one? Go to

I am not paid to write this post and/or promote I just belief that bloggers, especially bloggers active in advertising through their blog get one.

Clean Slate

Mood: Happy!

Helloo! I've got a spanking brand new blog! :D

Okay enough of that. Welcome all!
Where to start?? Hmm..

First of all, I didn't delete my blog. I just changed the address. Why? Cos I realised it has skeletons in there. Things that are just childish, immature and some that may hurt people I know if they bother to check through 5 years of archives. (By the way how many of you do check?)

So if you've been reading this from the start or near the start of things, (I know only 1 person and its Sebby, love you deep deep Seb!) thanks for growing up with me :D

So that basically explains things don't you think? besides, I'm starting to categorize my posts and I don't want to trawl through hundreds of entries to do that, so I decided to be lazy and start all over. Hee!

So with that, welcome to my new blog!

About Waking Up Famous

Hello! I'm Janessa and I'm a 22-year old with a shiny new Diploma in Integrated Events & Project Management, in other words, I'm a party planner! I've been misplace in Singapore since I was five and originally from the Philippines.

I love kittens, writing, watching films all day and Mr. Wonderful.

I absolutely hate Flower-flavoured food and drinks (except for some teas) and Barney the Dinosaur. Apart from those, I'm generally a person who loves anything and will be willing to try new things.

Jane Austen is my fave and so is Darth Vader. I am also obsessed bout Johnny Depp much to Mr. Wonderful's suffering.

Waking Up Famous is my 2nd blog and I started it to post things that inspires me in my life.  

If you wish to contact me about anything and everything under the sun (nothing illegal tho) or you just want to say hi, drop me an email at!
