Miss Tam Chiak’s First Online Magazine is here!
Happy 6th blog anniversary to me and you! Time really flies isn’t it? It felt like I was only celebrating my 4th anniversary yesterday. Now I am feeling old.
I still remembered the times when I start sharing my life online. Then I got an internship in a food magazine and decided to set up a Chinese food blog. I bought my first DSLR in 2009. A year later, I changed the blog to English. It started from a pure just-for-fun past time, and now it has became my full time serious hobby. Everyday when I opened my eyes, the first thing I do is to open my website. And the last thing I do before going to bed is also to open my website.
I think you can call this an obsession. But I cannot survive without looking at my blog everyday. And I would spend a minimum of 3 hours everyday thinking of something to blog. That is why you have something to read almost everyday. This path is definitely not easy. Beside having to watch my figure (ops!), the main difficulty is to make it different from the rest. I am still learning and I will not give up.
This year’s blog anniversary, I decided to do things a little different — publish a magazine! The idea struck me just last week when I was reading a travel blog and saw her lovely online magazine. So I thought, why not try it? Hence, I decided to do a summary for my food and travel adventures for the past 6 months. I start spending hours everyday doing this (besides blogging). And this is my anniversary gift for you.
It’s definitely not the best and it can be better. But well, I am testing water for now. I don’t know if you guys will love this. But if you like it, drop me a note and I may change it to a monthly affair. And also, you may want to open it and read it till the last page as a surprise awaits.
6 years is definitely not easy. There’s lotsa sweat and tears behind this blog. I am grateful for all the love you have shown through these years as we have grown from 500 views to 87,000 views per month. I will continue to churn out interesting posts everyday and hope we can hit 100,000 soon!
Thank you everyone for giving me the support to pursue this dream. May we celebrate more years together! CHEERS!
