The Plump Pinay
Nuffnang’s Featured Blogger for the Month of October 2014
1. Who are you and what is your blog about?
We are Danah & Stacy Gutierrez, 23-year old twin sisters and body positive advocates and plus size models. Our blog (www.theplumpinay.com) is all about women empowerment, loving one’s self and body, and our personal opinions and lifestyle.
2. What can we expect from your blog?
Real, sensible talk. Positive vibes–always!
3. When and how did you start blogging?
We started blogging November 2009. My sister was recovering from her eating disorders when she stumbled upon a plus-sized body positive blogger from Australia. It moved her so much that she wanted to start her own “body revolution” in our country, so we got talking.
4. What separates your blog from other blogs?
We’re the first body acceptance blog in the country. We raise and discuss issues, and we provoke our readers to think. It’s no-frills, straight to the point blogging, with occasional OoTDs, and foodie posts. Also, our blog is very relatable because we like to keep it real. We’re allergic to BS, there is no space for that in our blog. LOL. We also are very careful with the ads we promote, making sure that we put our principles and values as women our main priority rather than just getting projects or endorsements.
5. What is the best thing about being a blogger?
Having a voice and sharing it with the world. It’s only until this year that we fully realized the impact we’re making in our culture and society. It’s crazy! We are very grateful to God for giving us the boldness and passion to make positive change in the lives of women through writing, and pushing them to see their real worth and beauty.
