The Story Behind My Blog

The moment I knew that I was going to Korea for exchange, around 8 months before departure, I was like an (over) excited puppy. So much so that I scoured the Internet for anything related to going for exchange and life in Korea in general. I think I saw almost every blog and every Youtube video out there about Yonsei and exchange in Korea. I also watched many vlogs on Youtube about life in Korea and anything related to Korea in general.

However as I read the blogs, I realised that most of them stopped when they were actually in Korea. So nothing was out there to really help me with my exchange planning journey. I realised that making a blog that can help others have a better exchange experience than me would be something great to do so I decided to start Seoul Wanderlust Stories 🙂

Some Advice Coming From Another Newbie

Well.. I am very new to this space too. Some of the advice that I can probably tell to others is to:

  • Be sincere and honest in your writing and reviews
  • Try to update the blog as frequently as you can – it’s not only to sustain your readers’ interest but it’s also so that you don’t accumulate too much content that you become lazy to do it anymore
  • Give tips and learnings from your experiences so your readers can experience it in a better way!

Nominations

I would like to nominate Rufustory – a super cool blog about travelling in Korea. Rufus is a full-time student, part-time photographer and traveller in Korea and his photos are always so beautiful!

I would also nominate Coffee Tea Travels, another travel blog (sorry I loveee travel blogs!) that covers other places outside of Korea too. I really appreciate the tips I get from this blog, so if you’re travelling soon, check them out!

The Rules

  1. Write a post to show your award
  2. Give a brief story of how your blog started
  3. Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers
  4. Thank whoever nominated you, and provide a link to their blog
  5. Select a few other blogs you want to give the award to.

Once again, thank you so much Fede for nominating me 🙂
