Grace Tan

This blog was started in October 2010, when I was working for someone else and decided there had to be more to life than just slogging my years away in a well-paying but unfulfilling job.

In 2011, I quit my S$114,000 job (click here to read more about how and why I did it), the CEO of the company was not at all pleased that I was blogging (read about his response here) but I couldn’t care less.

So I began my blogging journey.

In 2012, I first heard about the Singapore Blog Awards and decided to take part. I was fortunate enough to be picked out of hundreds of nominees to get a Top 10 placing for ‘Best Individual Blog’. I didn’t win the title though.

In 2013, I decided to try again. And win I did. 😀 Read the shortest “acceptance speech” ever here.

In 2014, two of my best students took part in the Singapore Blog Awards and one won the Best New Blog award (travelledpaths.com) and the other – who is 67 years old! (and blogs at retiredowhat.com) – beat hundreds of other nominees to be a Top 10 Finalist in the Best Individual Blog category! I can’t be more proud of them!
