TL;DR: Welcome! This blog is not solely fiction driven! Expect posts Monday, Wednesday, and Fridays for #under500 project, and then sporadic postings of more of the fiction I write, but also more literary and non-literary content alike!
Recently, I have gained a lot more views and followers in the past week, so I figured I would give you all a more formal introduction of myself! My name is Camille, and I am a senior in college. I created this blog mainly because I wanted to document my experience conducting independent research in S. Korea. Unfortunately, I was not particularly fruitful endeavor, but I would like to think that I spent my time enjoying and exploring more for myself rather than recording for other people. And fundamentally, I believe that this is what the purpose of this blog will be. A few posts ago, I wrote about how terrified I am of putting myself out there in the world. I’m afraid that the things I write about may offend someone, or that it may come across the wrong way, or that maybe someone will just think my writing is absolute trash– which if we’re honest, probably can be at times. Nevertheless, I feel like this is a moment in my life where I am exercising what many would call “self-love” and not care about what other people think.
Generally, it is really nice to know that I have a small readership and that some of you actually like my writings. But I want to give a fair warning, I don’t want to make this into a niche blog. I’ve been reading up on the internet how to make a blog successful: make sure that you write on a particular topic, so you become an expert on that topic. But, this blog is truly going to be a reflection of my life, and that means that I’m not great at one thing, but I am fairly mediocre at a wide range of stuff, so that’s good enough, right?
I will be starting college (Uni for those of you outside of the U.S College system) back up again in a few weeks and posting daily is completely unrealistic for me. Especially for my #under500 challenge. So, I’ve created a schedule of Monday, Wednesday, and Friday postings for the #under500 challenge and post sporadically on other topics. I care about a lot of issues (activism, social justice, Asian American related topics, adoptee related topics, representation, you get the gist) and I hope to write more on them either in fiction or non-fiction prose. There are a few projects that I have in mind, that I would like to undertake, so be on the look out for those. In the mean time, if you made it this far into the post, thanks for following me on a 2 AM ramble, and I appreciate you.
