Why I started blogging

Writing Blogging Lifestyle Why Mindful

I started blogging to become a better thinker and a better writer.

Writing down my thoughts forces me to think deeper about them and to organize them. By thinking deeper about who I am, I aim to live a more intentional & meaningful life.

Blogging – just like journaling – is a healthy habit that requires time, concentration, discipline & commitment which are all great things. Blogging is also an occasion to reflect back on my personal growth and articulate the changes I am experiencing.

I love to meet new people (one reason I go to Mundo Lingo events every week) and blogging seems to be a great way to get in touch with like-minded people. Also, contrary to publishing, blogging allows me to get direct input from the readers, either through comments or direct contact. I love positive feedback but I’m also always willing to improve.

I hope to provide recommendations & add value to my readers and perhaps even inspire them with my writings.


This post was greatly inspired by Joshua Becker’s 15 Reasons I Think You Should Blog, Props to him for fueling my motivation to blog.


On Neckties – Why & How to wear a tie

Ties Neckties

My opinion on ties

I find it too bad that some people view neckties as a symbol of servitude or even enslavement.

Of course if one’s only interaction with neckties is to randomly grab one in the morning and tie it on because they think they don’t have a choice, that’s very unfortunate.

One could rather consider neckties for what they are – a scarf – and see it as an indispensable element of the lounge suit. Not because of social constraints but because neckties provide vertical structure, colours, textures & patterns that will bring balance to the whole outfit. It’s fluidity and asymmetry (both from the knot and the blades) can also add some life to an attire.

A Short History of Ties


How I wear neckties

I wear both bow ties and ties. I usually tie the latter with a Four In Hand knot which I find suiting for any occasion.
