Happy Birthday TSN + Personal Update

Photo of Tina Su by Jeremy Sawatzky (Location: Qianmen Hutong)

A year ago today, Think Simple Now was launched with the intention of sharing some of my lessons learned on personal development. The audience was originally intended to be only my family and friends. That circle of friends quickly expanded around the world, to people in 197 countries, and grew beyond any of my expectations.

My original goal was simply to have 100 subscribers. Today, I am proud to be writing for 9000 RSS subscribers and 200,000 (smart and good looking *smiles*) readers who frequent the site each month. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you for trusting me with your valuable time. Thank you for your continuous encouragement and support.

Not only have my dreams come true, I am deeply in-love with working on this site. Words cannot express the state of blissful flow I experience when creating new content.

A Journey to Arabic China

I am currently in China on a five week trip and will be spending half of the time in Beijing and the other half In the XinJiang Province. XinJiang is also known as Turkistan China, where a mixture of 19 different ethnic groups co-inhabit a region graced with vast deserts as well as some of the world’s highest mountains.

If you’re interested, you can follow my personal blog at Simply Tina. I will be updating it with pictures and words as Internet access will allow (Subscribe to the RSS feed).

During this time, I will do my best to keep up with my regular posting schedule, but can’t make any promises. Thanks for your understanding.

  12. Happy birthday to TSN :) This is a great blog and I can’t believe how much it grew in so little time. I’m not sure if you remember, but I am the founder of, which is now sold to a new owner. My wife and I really wanted to continue blogging because bloggers like you inspire my wife and I, but financial problems tend to kick in at times.

    Now I basically just help out on a arcade site and hope to come back one day :)

    Again, Happy Birthday!
