Blogging 101: About me


My name is KiwiBee. I’ve been blogging personally for a few months now, mostly sharing pictures and short pieces of writing. This blog ( is primarily a creative outlet for me. I love taking pictures and writing, so I thought I would share them periodically rather than keep them buried in the files on my computer.Β  I like having a space where text and photos can work together and how, when taken as a whole, they tell a story about a time, a place and people.

Currently I live in Yeosu, South Korea working as an English teacher, but I am originally from a small town in Wyoming in the western United States. Korea has greatly influenced the stories I’m working on and is the feature of all of my photographs at the moment.

I first got into blogging my last year at university when I ran a blog for a science grant program on campus. I loved the way the blog connected people and created a sense of community. When I moved to Korea, I started a blog to keep friends and family updated on life here and the crazy adventures my significant other and I have while teaching. While that blog provided me with a great avenue for sharing about our daily life, I didn’t want to fill it with tid-bits of creative writing and random photos. So, I started this blog as my play space and am working to keep a nice balance of updates on both sites.

I’m super excited about this challenge and have loved reading about everyone’s blogs!
