One Hundred Posts

Why do people blog? Why do I blog?

If the stats are right, this is my hundredth published post since I started this blog last April.

I began blogging to figure out who I was and what I stood for. (See About)

I had made a blog on to document my trip to Taiwan in 2009, but keeping up the momentum for each day was tiring. Even on a trip, it is hard to find something new to write about each day. With the added difficulty of slow image uploads, my posts thinned out as I prepared to return to America. And after a final reflective post on my trip, I decided to drop blogging, at least for now. Maintaining a blog in the midst of college applications and schoolwork was not a priority.

Then, through an internship, I discovered WordPress. With support for foreign languages, easy image manipulation, and a clean interface, WordPress was ideal. And when I discovered that I did have something to say, I decided to start this blog.

What one publishes is the part of the person that one wants to show the world. With this blog I would figure out my life and my ideals while being published online.

I think it has worked. I’m still sifting through the sands, but I understand myself better than I did before. The vague interests I couldn’t quite pin down have solidified as I blog about them.

Here are some of my favorite posts:
