Blogging 101 : Hello World!

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! ❤

  2. Hi,
    I started the book. I’m only on Page 25, but I wanted you to know.
    Did I tell you I’m planning on moving to a new site so I can self-host? I hope you’ll follow me over there.
    Thanks for visiting me today. I’m glad you liked my reblog.

  3. Hi Yen,
    Have you read the Huffington Post’s book? Do you recommend it? I see it advertised here. It looks like you’re getting help from the Community Pool. I’m glad. I’ll be back late July to resume posting. Have a good month.
