Who is Paper?
Hi, my name is Joanna and Paper is my online nickname. It was coined by longstanding blogging friends, who all accompanied me when I begun my journey in the blogosphere.
When I started to blog anonymously in September 2006, I created the username PAPERBACKWRITER. In a short period, everyone begun calling me paper ~. A moniker, I came to love and in the end preferred using.
Yes, I made a lot of mistakes when I started blogging. One glaring fact is that I capitalized my username, not knowing then, that when I type words in capitals, it is tantamount to screaming when I do so online.
Between the time I screamed my online name unknowingly in the internet, and the beginning of the year 2011, when I finally started to fill virtual pages in my very own humble online writing corner under my real name I feel, that have learned, improved and grown.
Still, I would like to grow more, continue to be inspired, and in the process inspire like I was inspired. The latter being the strongest motivation, and reason for the courage I acquired to begin this blog.
I hope to do so through thoughtful writing, soulful blogging , creatively expressing myself through different mediums, exchanging ideas with fellow bloggers, and the world at large.
Most importantly spreading love, hope and cheers.
