Wow! 10 freaking years!
For those who don’t know, Sue Lynn and I work on Bangsar babe on a part time basis. A lot of people ask us, “How do you keep it up for TEN YEARS?” The answer is PASSION.
“When people see the passion, they will buy into what we do. They will believe in what we believe in.”
And that is what Sue Lynn has been doing for the past decade. She believes and I believe. I believe in her passion and that is why we are here today.
Passion and belief.
For the past 10 years, 1,642 posts was published on Bangsarbabe.com. It takes about 3 hours of creative writing and 3 hours of photo editing to produce an article – that’s 6 hours per article. That’s approximately 9,852 hours spent working on Bangsarbabe.com.
In summary, that’s 1 post for every 8 days and that’s what I call consistency. That’s what I call passion. But wait, that’s just the blog. What about the social media platforms? What about the back-end things? The emails, the relationship building, the meetings?
People see the “glamour” lives we live but they do not see the steep mountain we hike up, slowly, with determination, passion, and belief.
Authenticity – The idea was the create something that people would want to read. We want people to wake up and say “Hey, I want to read what Bangsar Babe has written today!”.
Because if you think about it, there is so much noise out there, we no longer have that longing for a good read. You open the newspapers and it’s rubbish, you open the magazines and it’s rubbish, and worse of them all, so many websites out there – rubbish. I’m not saying all of them, but most. Because all they see is numbers.
15 million visitors and 550k followers later, we still do not see them as numbers. We see them as people who share our passion and share our belief.
This year, we celebrate 10 years of determination, hard work, and most important of all, passion and belief. Thank you for reading bangsarbabe.com and for the continuous support all these years.
