Awesome in Manila is a personal and lifestyle blog founded by writer+creative collaborator, Dani Austria. The blog is dedicated to exploring all things (adulting, food, culture, travel) awesome in Manila.

Let’s start with the basics! My name is Dani, I’m twenty-ish and I live in Manila, Philippines. I am a writer+creative collaborator and I’ve been at this gig since 2010.

Currently, I work in advertising as a community manager (creating and curating content, wrestling with performance reports, arguing with accounts over weird client demands). In the past, I also tried my hand in digital publishing and reputation management, still as a writer. 
I started blogging in high school, during Friendster’s heydays and had moved from one platform to another (MySpace, Tumblr, Multiply, Wordpress), before finding my sweet spot in Blogger. Awesome in Manila has been my favoritest pet project to date. This blog is continuously evolving, as I too am continuously evolving.

Want to collaborate? The blog is always open for contributors and advertisers. If you'd like to share your piece of Manila to the world (or vice versa), shoot me a line and I'll save a space for you.
