Yes, it’s been 6 years. 6 years since I officially launched my blog back in 2011 (check out how different I look in my first ever post!). The official “date” is actually a week away, but I thought I’d share this post a little early, mainly for myself. I think blogiversaries are the perfect opportunity to look back and see how far you’ve come, what could be done differently to produce better content, the people, brands and companies that have been involved, and the support received thus far by your readers and loved ones.


I’d like to keep this short and simple unlike my usual posts. First of all, I’m very thankful for the person that suggested I start a blog in the first place – otherwise, I wouldn’t be here writing this. You know who you are!


Secondly, I appreciate how much I’ve grown as a person through these 6 years of blogging. I started out as a college student, who moved to Tokyo to pursue a modeling career, but ended up doing other things along the way. My blog is the one thing that has been consistent throughout, the one thing that has helped me stay creative, even sane, maybe.


Thirdly, I am extremely thankful for the creatives that has been a part of this blog – photographers, computer engineers, graphic designers, etc. Without any of these people, my blog would not be where it is now. And thanks to them, I’ve been able to deliver quality content over the years, and I hope I can continue doing so.


Fourth of all, I feel very fortunate to have worked with the brands & PR companies who have sponsored and collaborated with me over the years. It means so much when brands & companies trust my work and expect me to deliver quality content using their product. It really gets my creative juices flowing!


Fifth of all, the undying support of my family and friends has always been my rock. These people understand that the struggle is real sometimes, and are always there to get me back on my feet again. I cannot thank you all enough.


Lastly, and most importantly, my readers! Yes, I mean you. Blogs need readers, and you are the biggest reason I continue to blog, 6 years later. I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
