It's actually very embarrassing when we go into a new pitch showing clients some of the influencers we work closely with and the question thrown back at us was,
"Smith, how come don't have your picture? Are you not going to blog about us? Or are you throwing your own service Free of Charge har?"
I mean I do not go around publicizing that I am an "influencer" but I guess clients just know for some reasons. I mean not like I am Xiaxue or my blog has over 1 million clicks every month, you know what I mean?
In fact I've never labelled myself as an "influencer" or "blogger". I started this space to rant and share my daily (okay, not so daily because I got lazy) happenings and I guess I just got lucky that it has gotten some attention over the years.
In fact I always felt very embarrassed when we attend events and they give us media tag saying "blogger" or they introduces me as "award winning blogger". It's not because I'm embarrassed to be labelled as a blogger but simply because I am really doing this as a form of hobby, I don't take nice pictures or write exceptionally well. I really put in very little effort to manage this space as compared to many "blogger-blogger" out there who drop their title as an influencer or founder of their blog more often than me dropping my pants over the last 10months. (If you get what I mean.)
I always feel that I'm a very lucky person. #Blessed (yuck). I'm neither the smartest person around nor the most hardworking but I (think I) am lucky. I meet people in life along the way that help me a lot. Like how my current business partners who brings me places and put me on platform at work that I never thought I would.
And the newest addition has to be the guys who have been teaching me how to shoot as well as getting me all comfortable in front of the camera as well. And yeah, so I now do OOTD post as well!
FOOYO! New function unlocked!

If you guys have been reading this space for the past 11 years (WOW!), you guys would know that this space never have/had anything useful or important. In fact I always have this problem when people ask me what I blog about and expect a typical answer such as food, tech, beauty or certain type of blogger. (no offense to any of you guys out there. you go tiger!) The problem with being a certain type of blogger is that you have to be really good in a single subject that makes you the opinion leader. Mr.Smith here is a jack of "most trade" and a master of none. oops. This space is really just a personal space! (okay lah, or you guys like the title "lifestyle blogger" for anyone who blogs general stuff lor)

This space to be honest is really not one that is set up with much calculated content strategy or media plan. (HAHA! And one of the businesses I run is a social media agency. Irony!) Most of the actions taken were seriously more of an afterthought or in fact "lackofthought".
But I guess one thing that I do pretty well is trying to be funny! I said TRY! doesn't mean I am good at it lah.
So.... AM I A FASHION BLOGGER YET?? (Or Modelle?)
