Announcing the Official Karen On Relaunch Date, a New Blog, and New Site Features

New Karen On HeaderHi everyone!

In case you missed it, I announced last week on Karen On that the new version of the website will officially relaunch on January 14, 2013. I have also announced that I will be blogging on what I call a temporary annex blog at dat girl Karen until the new website is ready. On dat girl Karen, you will get a feel of the types of posts I’ll make on the updated version of Karen On, so be sure to check it out and follow along!

On another note, you have probably noticed for a long time that this website has undergone a transformation too! One of the major updates is that I will now be using the blogging function to feature any new articles that have been posted to my portfolio. This way, you can quickly navigate to my latest work (that I feel proud of, of course)! Another new major update is the addition of my Featured page, which lists a bunch of other websites and social media pages that my work (writing, photos, and videos) has been mentioned, quoted, or featured in. To coincide with the relaunch of my blog, I have also changed the Karen On subpage of my portfolio to Entertainment Reviews, Interviews, and News—same content, just a different title.

I thank you all for your support as I make this transition. If you have any feedback regarding any of my three current sites and what you’d like to see on the new blog, I welcome it, so feel free to email me or leave your comments here. Thanks again, and see you here, there, and everywhere!


Remodeling and Regrouping

Hi everyone!

In an effort to relaunch my brand and regroup my efforts as a blogger and budding online journalist, I will be remodeling this website in the coming weeks, so please excuse the dust. I will also be announcing new plans with my blogs and social media pages.

If you have any feedback about the website, please feel free to comment on this post or drop me a line! Thank you, as always, for stopping by and see you back here soon. 🙂


All-new and upcoming for 2012

I know it’s been a week since we rang in the new year, but Happy New Year to all of you and I hope your first week of 2012 was fantastic!

I’ve been fixing little things on this site for the past couple of months and I can now say that it is pretty much complete! My home page sounds punchier; the Portfolio has more accessible navigation; my Activism page now has more than two words on it; I added a Specialties and Services page that explains more about the topics I’m interested in covering and freelance projects I’m open to; my Resume page now has a [less-than-stellar] visual version embedded; and I updated my Media and Work Experience sections with some new ventures.

That’s right: For the next few months, I will be juggling both an office job and an internship! I’ve been enjoying my new morning routine at Cardpool but I am SUPER stoked to be filling the role of Publicity Intern for the 30th San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival! It’s going to be such an incredible opportunity for my line of work and having volunteered for the festival a couple of times, I feel so proud to be even more involved with an event and organization that I love so much. I am going to be so busy but after the miserable November-December I’ve had, I couldn’t be happier about having these opportunities. This is what my life is all about. 🙂

The only thing I need for this site is new photography since the photos you’re seeing are over a year old, but I’m trying to shoot for the end of the month to take them down and replace them with more current portraits. To be honest though, I haven’t really changed much in my appearance at all, haha!

I’m going to continue to work hard and hope that 2012 will be a milestone year. It’s definitely off to a good start! Thank you all for sticking with me and to all my new visitors, friends, and colleagues, welcome! And to each and every single one of you, I hope 2012 will be a spectacular time in your lives!

Best wishes,
