Blogger Profile: Louisa Chanby
Over the years I have profiled bloggers from the Northwest Territories to the Fraser Valley, anyone that interests me and that I hope will interest you as well. A few years ago I started asking a standard set of questions and this is the latest instalment of this continuing series.
Blog: L For Life
How long has your blog been around?
I’ve been developing the idea of the blogazine about a year ago, it was officially launched 2 months ago.
What is your role?
I am the founder and Editor-in-Chief of LFORLIFE.COM.
What does your site do/what is it about?
I call it “blogazine”, it is a lifestyle blog written mostly in Chinese. I love to share stories. With the nature of my previous work, a lifestyle reporter; and my strong editorial background, I want to create a platform where Chinese Canadians, new immigrants and Chinese international students can find useful local lifestyle information by sharing my own adventures in searching these “hidden gems”.
What can people see, read, and do when visiting your site?
There are 5 categories in my blogazine – Style, Food, Travel, Pets and Life.
For fashionistas, you will find the latest trend reports and shopping guides, I also do beauty product reviews. For food lovers, you will find my own experiments in the kitchen. In travel section, I focus mainly on local hidden spots that people will never find in travel books as well as my own travel stories to other cities.
I love my dog, every day I learn a new lesson on how to become a better dog owner, if you are also a pet owner or if you are planning to become one soon, I might have some very good tips for you in the Pet section. Also, our guest writer VB, who has 10+ years experiences in veterinary and pet supply industry, will feature her stories to all pet owners too!
Life section is about art, LGBT and fun things to do in the city, check out regularly to find out the latest events!
Why do you blog?
My love for writing and sharing stories. I have worked in the magazine and newspaper industry for almost 10 years. Although it was fun to work as a team, it is difficult at times to express freely on paper.So when time calls, I decided to quit my day job to start my own “publication”. Blog / website is a great platform to share stories and to interact with people, I encourage my readers to leave comments and share their finds.
What is the ultimate goal for your site, how would you like to see it grow?
I wish someday my blogazine will become one of the major Chinese lifestyle medias. I’d be thrilled if my articles would enrich how people live their lives.
