how did you get started?

After I read Gretchen Rubin's The Happiness Project , while in New Zealand, I decided I wanted to start my own blog. Finally in November 2017, I signed up for Nomadic Matt's Superstar Blogging Course, and This Giant World was born! 


why the name "this giant world"

The world never ceases to amaze me. I love learning about other people's stories and experiences. I love traveling and exploring new places and learning about different cultures. I hope my blog gives readers some new ideas of where to go and what to try when they visit a new city! 

what kind of camera do you use?

I use a Nikon Alpha NEX-7 D with with 18-55mm and 20mm Lenses  . For Instagram or when I’m on the go, I use my handy dandy iPhone 8.


i want to start my own blog. what's your advice?

I am a big proponent of doing what you love. So, if you want to start a blog, keep writing and always post clear, colorful images. Write about whatever makes you happy and what your passions are. Why do you want to write a blog? Whatever pops into your head is your gut reason for writing, so go ahead and write, write, write! Eventually everything will just flow naturally. Do not give up and never, ever, EVER compare yourself to other bloggers! Keep going and just be you.
