As most of my readers probably know, this blog is actually part of a project for my Fundamentals of Digital and Online Media class at Texas State University. Even though I write on WordPress for my current job as a content intern, I had no intention of ever starting my own personal blog…but I’m so glad I did! This blog allows me to share my passion for Korean culture with others, and I get to utilize my creative brain at the same time. I truly enjoy writing for my blog and I hope to continue it after I’m done with the project requirements for my course, even though I might not get a whole lot of traffic here.
With that being said, there is a blogger who has supported my posts that I’d like to shout out – Caitlin Jean Russell! She is a fellow WordPress user, and she has an awesome blog that you should check out right here. Caitlin is a Scottish expat who has recently moved to South Korea to teach English. If you’re a travel lover, you’ll find her blog super interesting as much of her content covers travel tips, including reviews of destinations, hotels, restaurants and more. Caitlin goes the extra mile by creating not just text content, but vlogs as well! Her videos are incorporated into her blog posts, but you can also view them on her YouTube channel, as seen below.
If you’re eager to learn more about South Korea specifically (which, if you’ve somehow stumbled across my blog, is likely) then you can check out her posts covering daily life living and working in Korea’s fourth largest city, Daegu. Posts include topics like her experience traveling with Korean Air, a photo collection showcasing Daegu scenery, and so on. Personally, I’m also interested in becoming an ESL teacher in Korea for some time, so her post entitled “How to Apply to Teach English in South Korea” is a really valuable resource to refer back to if I eventually decide to follow the same path.
Caitlin, thanks so much for your support and for creating such great content. I wish you all the best on your future endeavors and I can’t wait to check out more of your posts. Maybe we’ll run into each other in Korea next year!
You can keep up with Caitlin on her various social media channels:
