Blogger Jenny Hwang of Geek in Heels
Q: When and why did you start blogging?
A: I started blogging in 2001, simply because all my friends were doing it! I have kept diaries and journals for as long as I could remember, so blogging came easily to me as I began to think of it as a way of sharing a piece of my life with the world. Unfortunately, most of my friends have since quit blogging, but I kept up with it over the years.
Q: How do you think your blog stands out amongst blogs of the same genre?
A: To be completely honest, I don’t think that my blog has a specific genre. In addition to the happenings of my life, I also share funny and interesting tidbits I find on the web. I am a geek and so I write about tech and gadgets and the web, but I also devote a lot of space to motherhood and to my relationship with my husband. So I guess that my blog is different from many of the more popular blogs out there in that it is niche-less.
Q: What does your family think of your blogging?
A: My family knows that I have a blog, but they do not make a big deal of it. My husband sees it as a hobby, as something I do to maintain my sanity and to vent and share. My parents do not know much English, so while they know that I have a personal website, I’m not sure that they know what a blog is!
That being said, I have
gotten in trouble in the past for over-sharing parts of my life that my loved ones prefer to keep under wraps. As such, I am much more careful these days when blogging about situations that involve others, or I will ask their permission first. (more…)
