1. Tell me about yourself. Describe yourself.

Well, I am Yunzi, better known as Joysofyz on social medias. Joysofyz started off as an Instagram name in 2014, which came to me as an “Aha!” moment on an insomniac night. The name means “Joys” + “Of” + “Yunzi” (long form for yz).

2. What is your childhood dream? Did you make it happen?

I have once blogged about my dream here ( I used to dream myself as a pianist, an artist, a fashion designer and finally a veterinarian… But since I was not encouraged to pursue my studies on any of these (yeah, I don’t care what they said about a vet might die while handling scare animals, but I couldn’t get a full scholarship on this course so I had to forget about it!). So no, I didn’t make any of these happen, except to keep them as my hobbies.

3. Describe how you first get into blogging?

I started blogging when I was in secondary school (2007). Initially, it was all about my passion in editing HTML and CSS, until I decided to blog as an e-journalist to not waste my efforts. My first blog eventually got forgotten (lost my blog link and login details) as I got busy with the increasingly hectic school life. Joysofyz is my third blog designed in 2014. Again, it was just for fun until I got an unexpected traffic on my study exchange posts. Since then, I got into some serious blogging. 

4. Besides blogging, what do you do as passion? Do you have other passion to pursue?

Since young, I have always loved art and media stuff, like playing piano (probably forgotten how to play now), brush lettering and water-colouring. Ever since I came to Singapore, I have been interested in photography, videography and web/mobile interface design. All these are something I wish to continue learning and improving.

5.What type of blogger do you want to be? Share your thoughts about it.

I would choose to be a beauty and lifestyle blogger. There are just too many beauty products out there that I believe everyone would love to know which is the best to invest on. Thus, if I get to try out all products, I can make a detailed comparison for accurate references to my readers. Lifestyle is plainly because I just couldn’t make myself focus on one niche (life is too exciting ok!).

6. What does the word success mean to you?

To me, success is about getting known about something (positive) I have achieved, getting me a consistent and increasing income while doing something I love. 

7. What is your biggest dream now?

Getting a high pay full-time job on UX/design/media role without programming needed (yeah, I am graduating in July 2017)

8. If you are given a million dollars, what would you do with that money?

Depending which currency you are talking about. If it is in USD, not going to lie but I will start learning about stocks and spend a 1/10 amount on it, uses 1/8 on travel, gives 1/6 for my mother, buys a GoPro, a drone and 2 Canon lens and stores the remaining into a FD of a bank with the highest interest rate. (Hey, 1m is not a lot!)

9. If you could possess one super-human power, what would it be?

I would love to be a clairvoyant which is a person with the ability to see the future! With this ability, I will be able to win all 4D & TOTO grand price by purchasing the number and winning it! (No, need to go through all steps to create memories in life). With that money, I can start my own business, donate to needy folks of all countries and spend the remaining travelling. (Hey, we are now talking about infinite money!)

10. What is your proudest achievement or accomplishment you have achieved in life?

Not too sure. Everything is about hard work and determination to success, I’m proud of everything I have accomplished so far in life. But of course, still working for a better result in every single aspect I spend effort on. 

11. Can you name some of your favourite bloggers and why? Who would you love to collaborate with?

I don’t really have any favourite bloggers, but I do enjoy reading some influencers’ blog! For example, Instagram handles: Brenwho, Xinlinnn, Naomineo and Chleoandchoo. Would love to get to know them first before thinking about collaboration!

12. What would you say that is the biggest challenge about blogging?

As I got so used to speaking Singlish, thus my biggest challenge would be blogging in proper English! I tend to mix in those weird sentence structures in my blogpost. Perhaps it might be understandable for my readers from Singapore and Malaysia, but my readers from USA most likely not that comfortable in reading my writing style!

13. What would you say that is the greatest satisfaction of being blogger?

Of course, is bringing my own thoughts across to my readers! That’s the main reason why I blog too. There are people out there who is relying on my authentic experience, so I must do a good job to not disappoint them. 

14. How do you motivate yourself to keep the blog up and running?

I will always try to make time to blog. Recently my study life is too busy as final project deadline is coming up, so I have not been blogging much. When I blog, I always keep in mind what my audience would what to gain from this post – even if it is just delivering some sort of happiness or encouragement, it is still a motivation for me to continue blogging.

15. What advice would you give to other aspiring bloggers? those who wants to starts a blogging career? and a general advice to those have big dreams?

We all have big dreams. Try finding doors that lead to your dreams, and be determined! The path is never easy. If you are thinking about starting a new blog, just start one! Don’t think about gaining fame or getting audience. Focus on what you feel like delivering and sharing, then do it sincerely. Blogging is never easy, be determined and doors will eventually open to your big dreams!
