What is the meaning of your logo?
This is the second version of our logo. It is more colorful and it simply illustrates the things we do for this blog. It represents our thirst for adventure from the top of a mountain to the depths of the sea. It shows our capability of conquering personal fears and surpassing limits. It reflects our ability to push ourselves beyond comfort zone. It’s all about living a life full of adventure. The map marker on the other hand symbolizes that we are ready to face challenges in any place and at any time. ~ Updated: July 4, 2017
Who is Blaine?
This blog is authored by Blaine Chrian, a registered nurse both in the Philippines and United States. Currently residing in the pearl of the orient seas, Blaine was an oncology nurse for five years. He is presently working as a case management nurse in a clinical process outsource company in Bonifacio Global City. In his free time, he is an educator, travel writer, photo and video hobbyist.
Blaine started blogging since 2008. His first blog, Visions of a Colorblind Photographer, was all about street photography which garnered several recognitions from various award giving bodies.
Visions of a Colorblind Photographer received recognition from Saranggola Blog Awards Philippines for two consecutive years (2011 and 2012) as Blog-galing under the photo blog category. It was also nominated for best photo blog/micro blog last 2013 in the Globe Tattoo Awards.
Some of his photographs in this blog were also used as a movie poster in an independent film titled “Walang Paalam”, screened in UP Film Center last February 26, 2015. You can read more about this film here: http://masscomm.upd.edu.ph/office-extension-and-external-relations-oeer/event/free-screening-walang-paalam-26-ferbuary-2015-6pm
Blaine entered a period of hiatus in the blogging world for 5 years due to personal reasons. After 5 years, he decided to reignite his sleeping passion for blogging and photography, and started with a new inspiration at hand.
“Blaine is Lost” will contain his travel narratives, guides, foods he tried and some personal entries about general life experiences. It will also contain the intricate details of his travel videos posted on Facebook or YouTube. He is currently a TravelBook PH and Lazada PH affiliate.
