I want my blog to be different from others. It is not difficult to come up with the idea, for me at least, but to actually have the idea blossom into reality can be very difficult. It may seem impossible; however, if there is impossibility, then there is almost always possibility. That is life.
It always seem impossible until it’s done.

It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all, in which case you have failed by default.

I have many interests and dreams. I would like everyone to be and think: DIVERSE. What I mean is if everyone can think from different perspectives, then we can all work together to make the world a better place.
I have found a website that talks about how to boost the blog popularity by having guest posts of celebrities. Although it is not my intention to boost the popularity of the blog by interviewing famous celebrities, but I would like to have the fans and the world to see how we bloggers and especially, general public, can work together with celebrities to raise awareness on many issues that we are struggling with. It is true that general public is already aware of what celebrities are doing, especially charity, but what about not-so well-known bloggers interview celebrities (especially those in entertainment – actors/actresses, singers)? Bloggers are, in general, a small part of general public and only those who blog usually know who other bloggers are, just like how Youtube channel subscribers or video makers know each other.
Since I am a huge environment and wildlife enthusiast, I will probably aim to intertwine several categories together as a target of interview (questionnaires) to tie environment/wildlife, travel, and work together. For example, if the celebrity is targeting fans at adolescent age (which seems to be the average age of fans for mega singer Taylor Swift, according to many sources online) then he/she should raise awareness of the issues around the world to this group so this group knows more issues and work together (with their favourite singer!), since adolescence is the step to adulthood and is the key to make difference for the next generation. I believe that famous celebrities are the key to make it happen as everyone knows who they are and they are highly respected. We can all be inspired by the work of celebrities at the same time we love them.
Certainly, there are quite few a celebrities who are very generous towards charity. I have found that majority of famous celebrities who are passionate about wildlife conservation, for example, are older celebrity generations such as Leonardo DiCaprio and Paul McCartney. Younger celebrities who are in their 20’s targeting fans who are most likely around that age and younger tend to be into human needs (i.e. UNICEF, Red Cross). Taylor Swift has recently made a music video ‘Wildest Dreams’ to the cause of saving wildlife, by donating all music video proceeds to African Parks Foundation of America (APFA). While this is good news, there is still a lot more work to be made.
