The ElegantWoman.org Story
Thank you for taking an interest about Elegantwomam.org.
The concept of The Elegant Woman (Elegantwoman.org) started many years ago, when I started collecting information about achieving elegance out of interest.
I bought a red leather bound journal in Bondi Beach, Sydney, Australia around 2003 and decided to collect pictures, notes, writings, articles from my research.
When I travelled, I enjoy taking the Elegant Woman's leather journal with me as I was most inspired during trips.
However, lugging around that big leather bound journal measuring around eleven inches by eight inches and about four inches thick, was not an easy task. I then collected most of my notes in smaller journals and together they formed the foundations of Elegantwoman.org
Thinking of a better way to carry all those information, notes and scrap pages with me, I ventured into starting a website. Then I could always scan, add, type my notes as I get them, wherever I am!
I didn't want a blog, because I had one already and I had difficulty finding my old posts or formatting it. (Back then, we didn't have much options to customize a blog, unlike today.)
I've also worked with previous web designers in my jobs and I felt it was very difficult to add a page at the spur of a hat.
After doing some research, I stumbled upon a service provider, called SBI! (affiliate link), which promises a consolidated way and almost-as-easy-as-blogging way to put up a website. Honestly, I don't know what in their order page or sales site made me sign up, but I was excited to have full control of my website project, instead of relying on web designers like I had in the past.
So on 25th of March, 2009, I bought SBI! and six days later, I registered Elegantwoman.org
And since then, I've been collecting information, assembling my thoughts on Elegantwoman.org ever since!
What's Next for ElegantWoman.org?
It's been a couple of months now, and Elegantwoman.org has been growing ever since. I really enjoy it!
My web and writing skills, though not perfect, have improved.
What's next for Elegantwoman.org? I'm not sure, because there is only one person (me) working on the website. I hope to release more books, eventually cds and videos to better explain the concept of the Elegant Woman, and the art of elegant living. I hope to introduce more e-courses too.
It will take a while though.... :) At this point, I'm just happy to gather a community of wonderful women because wherever we are, as long as we do our part to be the best as we can be, we can change the world.
Above all, I hope Elegantwoman.org inspires you to dream and to have the courage to be the person you dream to be.
