"Hey! Where am I?" you might find yourself asking. We're pleased to announce that you've found our new and improved blog -- your one stop shop for all things Korean beauty and lifestyle...Welcome to THE KLOG!
Think of it as the shorter, sweeter, more pumped up version of "The K-Beauty Log." With school over, me back in the States after a trip to Seoul, and more time to connect with you all (finally -- whew!), we decided to give our blog a fabulous name. Yes, pronounced and said like the word "clog," as in hair clogging the drain, clogged pores, just "KLOG!" Kind of appropriate, no? Mmmhmmm, we love the name too. :) And we've given ourselves a mini makeover!
Why revamp? You know, I really like what our blog has become. Since I started a little more than two years ago, I’ve been able to share why I love products, offer skin tips, and document my travels in Seoul. I’ve seen your thoughtful questions and answered them to the best of my ability. I’ve read really, truly touching stories about your mothers and your own personal skin stories, and you guys have come to respond and help each other too.
Then it hit me one day: The Soko Glam community is supportive, kind, and has this amazing, positive energy. Every one of you who has stopped by to read and comment reflects this. It’s something I've come to be so thankful for; with all the junk and negativity found online, I knew we had something special. So, naturally, we want to nurture this community and make it a place where we can all huddle and really dive into our passions, K-beauty and otherwise.
We've listened to all of your feedback, so now here’s what we have in store for you: More tutorials, more insight, more skin tips, more features! Think of us as your resource whenever you're curious about Korea, beauty, or life at large.
You’ll hear about the latest and greatest innovations and product lines from Korean brands here first. It’ll be easier to search for our most popular/helpful blog posts. You might even see me in a video or two.
You’ll also be hearing more regularly from other Korean beauty junkies as well, because -- hey! -- the more voices, the more company, the merrier.
This is your community. Make it your own. If you have something really interesting to say about Korean beauty, beauty in general, a makeup or skin care tip, or something interesting about Korean culture or lifestyle, write us at firstname.lastname@example.org or comment below, and we’ll make sure it’s heard.
To kick things off, I made something fun highlighting some of my favorite blog posts so all you K-beauty fans can put your knowledge to the test: It's THE KLOG QUIZ! I challenge you to dig around THE KLOG to see if you can find answers. The best part? I also put together some awesome goodie bags as prizes for 10 people with high scores!
So that’s it for now. Thanks for welcoming THE KLOG. We hope you guys find it worthwhile to stick around, learn, enjoy, and share the love.
