I might have started and deleted at least 5 blogs this year.

I started a 30-day challenge blog inspired by a TED video which I scrapped on Day 3.

I was dared to maintain an outfit blog. I couldn’t take the pressure of thinking what to wear everyday that I just had to delete it. My assistant was also running out of backdrops for the pictures so we both decided to just quit.

Figured I’m not the type who can stick to one subject. My blog has to be about anything and everything under the sun. I am no niche person. More like jack of all trades, master of none. :s

The first blog I ever started on Blogger was called “denswithme”. I used to post travel pictures and random essays there. It was even featured in Inquirer and

This time, I’m calling this piece of cyberspace cool detour (pronounced as KOOL D-TOUR). It’s a refreshing break from my usual daily grind.

My life has been so crazy the past few months that it has compelled me to stop and smell the flowers. Not to mention blog about the experience for better appreciation and processing.

I am basically writing for personal release. This is my outlet.

Thank you in advance for wasting a few minutes with me. I am a really silly girl. Inconsistent at times, careless and carefree. Do NOT take me seriously. Even I laugh at myself at my most serious moments. Forgive the shallowness but try to enjoy the photos, ironies, little stories, and many, many more!

Let the sun shine in,

Hi, I'm d. My blog, Cool Detour, is all about refreshing breaks from the usual. Follow me for travel, makeup, and lifestyle stories. :)

Thoughts on this one? I'd love to hear from you!
