Finally my anxiety has been pacified as I dig out Blogging 101 course’s first email from my Gmail “Promotions” folder. Today’s assignment is to write and publish a “who I am and why I’m here” post on your blog.
Allow me to tell you a story of my blogging journey…
I have been blogging on and off since 2002 which started off as a diary to record my feelings and thoughts. Throughout stages in my life I have kept not only one but a few blogs, each time starting anew hoping I could stay on the scene for as long as possible. In fact my old blogs are still floating on the internet 😉 Any ideas what to do with them?
As I’m stepping into a new chapter of my life last year I’ve decided to write again, which I’ve stopped since 2007. Something inside is telling me this time I will be sticking around for good. After some research and reading a book about blogging I chose WordPress.
Now allow me to tell you a story about myself…
#Hello world! My name is Yen, you may check my blog intro here. I picked up blogging again to share my passion and inspiration about things in life. I am easily inspired by all things surrounding me, example books, nature, weather, people, music, travel, photos & list goes on~ Do not give up on life for life is a sun that will shine through bad weathers and maelstroms 🙂
Most topics in my blog consists of:
- Book reviews — Because I am a bookworm, my reading journey started when I was very young. I review English and Chinese books (post coming very soon!)
- Food/Product reviews — Because often I searched the internet I couldn’t find much info thus I aim to share my experience and reviews on products I used. And I love food! ❤
- Writing — Because I read a lot naturally I started to express myself via writings, I write a little here and there since my high school days.
- Others — Because it’s a journal I write about events happening in my life, the weather and my mood 🙂
Finally allow me to tell you my aspiration for this blog…
Walking down the WordPress path gradually revealed an interesting community of bloggers who share and exchange ideas generously. I am very happy to land myself in this community and hope my blog is a voice to be heard and anyone who reads my blog benefits from the views I shared, be inspired and stay connected by interactive communication.
This blog as of now still seems like a jumble of topics that need to be sorted and arranged, hopefully throughout this year I would be able to write enough posts and create a niche for my blog.
I would also like to take this opportunity to thank all my followers who have been following my blogging journey, THANK YOU! ❤
