The Elegant Story
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 traveled, 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 created Elegantwoman.org
And since then, I’ve been collecting information, assembling my thoughts on Elegantwoman.org ever since!
