What is Taipei Love Notes?
Taipei Love Notes is a compilation of personal appreciation and love towards Taipei and Taiwan, a place where many of its positive sides have been gradually fading to the back of our minds. This blog hopes to help people rediscover their love for this island, and highlight the overlooked aspects of it.
How does it work?
As a crowd-oriented project, Taipei Love Notes encourages and accepts all kinds of submissions. There is no fixed style of writing for this blog, so feel free to express your love and appreciation for this amazing country in the most comfortable way to you. If you have pictures for your love note, feel free to attach them to your submission as that’ll add a bit more personal touch to your beautiful text. Once you have all the materials ready, you can simply e-mail them all to firstname.lastname@example.org, and I will be glad to share them with the world 🙂
Does this sound like something that you want to be a part of? Then don’t hesitate to write up your love note and send them my way. 🙂
I am a wide-eyed wanderer who once dreamed about establishing a life in Taipei. This city used to be my source of inspiration growing up (before Philadelphia and New York City came into my life.) But over the course of my transition from adolescence to adulthood, my feeling towards the city gradually changed. I stopped having the excitement whenever I was in town, and what’s left are dissatisfaction and complaints. As a writer, I wanted to use the most natural way of expression to reverse the situation for myself, so after witnessing the massive success of another similar blogging project in Philadelphia, I decided to start my own version of positive compilation for Taipei in early 2016. I wasn’t sure how long I could keep things going, but to my surprise, after 17 months of daily photo-sharing and occasional blogging, this project is still going strong. I am also feeling a gradual change of my mentality, which is exactly what I hoped to achieve in the first place. So as cliche as it sounds, I hope to start hearing more from the 23 million residents of this amazing island, and expand the scope of this blog as well as share your love for it with a wider audience. Change is possible when you believe it can happen.
