WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO START YOUR BLOG?

I have always enjoyed photography for as long as I can remember. Taking photos is such a wonderful thing to do, and this inspires me to take things into the next level. I wanted to share what I see through all my amazing lenses with others who shares the same interest. Therefore I started blogging.

WHAT WAS THE MOST CHALLENGING MOMENT IN YOUR BLOGGING JOURNEY SO FAR?

My most challenging moment in blogging is probably finding time to keep up with everything. As much as I want to keep up with blogging, there are only 24 hours within a day and sometimes it is tough to fit in all the activities. With Instagram going on the same time, sometimes I don’t have as much time to devote for blogging. However, this has help me to improve time management skills!

WHAT WOULD YOU SAY THAT IS THE GREATEST SATISFACTION OF BEING A BLOGGER?

The greatest satisfaction is of course meeting lots of great fans and followers around the world. Sometimes looking at what I have created is also very pleasing and let me explore even deeper to what I can create.

IN THE FUTURE, WHERE DO YOU HOPE YOUR BLOG WILL TAKE YOU?

I hope in the future I can become a full-time blogger and let my creativity evolve into the next level. Hopefully, I will have a chance to collaborate with even more amazing brands and people and let my imagination go even further!
