Let’s Get Started

I first started blogging back in middle school during the mid-2000’s. I taught myself some HTML, found a free web hosting service, and created my own blog using other websites I liked as a guide. Back then, I would blog relatively frequently but never on a consistent basis. I had maybe 1 or 2 occasional readers but I didn’t care (that much) because I was just having fun. In high school, Facebook started becoming popular. I jumped onto that bandwagon and my interest in maintaining my own blog slowly diminished.

As I get older, I’ve been finding myself wanting more and more to get back into the blogging world. I even created another WordPress account for a little bit ~4 years ago, but never got past the initial posts.

Now I’m here to try again. I’m not sure if I’ll succeed but I’m tired of just daydreaming about things and not doing anything about them. I have a rough long term goal but I’m just going to take it one step at a time. Wish me luck!

The photo above was taken during my trip to Taiwan in November of 2017. We stumbled onto an outlook spot on the drive from Hualien to Jiufen.

  1. Good luck to starting over again! I’ve had a food blog before (in Mandarin Chinese) prior to the days of Facebook, and I’ve started almost three months ago. It’s still relatively new and exciting for me as I’ve taken the leap to upgrade my blog into a personal domain, too.

    Coincidentally, I am from Taiwan, but unfortunately I can’t see your photo…


    1. That’s awesome that you’re from Taiwan. Do you still live there? My dad goes there pretty often for work but it was my first time this past November.

      (I think I fixed the picture. It’s of this gorgeous viewpoint that we decided to stop at because there were SO many other people taking pictures there)


      1. I live in Taiwan right now! I’ve actually moved back home from the U.S. (New York, to be specific). Did you like Taiwan? Where else did you go? It’s actually pretty nice around winter time, as it is way too hot and humid during summer.

        I see the picture now! It’s beautiful.

      2. Oh cool. Yes, I liked Taiwan but my mom planned such a tight itinerary that we only saw a small part of each place. We were there for 8ish days and stayed at a different location every night. We went to Taipei, Sun Moon Lake, Alishan, Kaohsiung, Chihpen, Hualien, Jiufen, and then back to Taipei. It was a lot of sitting in the car. >.<

        Do you live in Taipei?


      3. That’s a lot of places! I live in Kaohsiung right now, but I’m originally from Taichung. I do have love for Taipei, since it’s a lot more convenient compared to Kaohsiung and Taichung. I think I’m a little bit (or very) spoiled by New York.

        Did you take the HSR? That does cut off some traveling time! There’s still quite a few places to go in Taiwan, too. If you like the beach, there’s Kenting at the most southern point of Taiwan, too.


      4. The only things we saw at Kaohsiung was the Love River, the tiny ferris wheel on top of the mall, and then one of the night markets. Definitely wish we could’ve done more. How do you get around in Kaohsiung? Still public transportation or do you drive?

        The company my dad works for has an office in Taiwan. So he just borrowed one of their vans and drove us everywhere. We only took public transportation twice: to and from the airport. So I’m not sure I would say we really experienced the public transportation system.
