“You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future.” Quote Steve Jobs

This is my second piece post in MiddleMe. Despite just starting out, I was humbled that it got picked up by an app and featured it to its 5 million readers, giving me the belief that I might be on to something good.
This post is one of the first few posts that started MiddleMe and the inspirations given by one of my friends. This got so popular that I had to follow up with a sequel to this piece.
Inspired by a loved one who was blinded to everyone’s feelings. Don’t get me wrong, he is a super nice guy, just that he often stumbled upon social awkwardness.
The first time I was inspired by a fellow blogger Kendall and this post is a spin off from what she wrote on her blog, Bully by Kendall F. Person. Soon it hit me that I get inspirations easily from people’s perspectives and their insights, I begin to read and delve deeper into others’ posts.
This was given to me by Rob Goldstein, my very first award.
This is the first post specifically touching upon Asians. Instead of generic career advices, MiddleMe is branching out to globalization career articles.
I kept encountering great articles as I kept reading and following more talented writers. One of them is Jonathan who is also one of the few pioneer followers of MiddleMe. His article was the first guest post that featured in my website, leading to a Guest Post permanent feature.
The very first time I touched on politics, and I hate politics because it is the one thing often divide people into two extreme teams.
You might not know but MiddleMe is born on 7 July. This is the first of Weekly Wisdom that you have come to love.
This spark off when a reader of mine wrote to me, seeking advice. I thought to myself the advice I gave would and could benefit a lot more people if I share it out. Hence after seeking approval and removing all direct evidence, A Word of Advice is born.
Another inspiration to start off a column based on my relocation experiences.
This was the first time I interviewed someone and I didn’t think I could pull it off but with the help of Cedrick, the interview article is a success!
2016 is going to be an exciting year ahead. I want to explore and build on what I already have and expand into unchartered horizons. If you find the above articles beneficial, share MiddleMe out to your loved ones.
I love any kind of suggestions on how you’ll like to see the growth of MiddleMe. If you do have wacky ideas, drop me an email at kally@MiddleMe.net.
Thank you so much for being a MM loyal follower.
Welcome to a new 2016 MiddleMe!
