Nominated for the Blogger Recognition Award 2017!

YAMVENTURES just started in May 2017 and it is very overwhelming that we have already been nominated for this Blogger Recognition Award. Thank you so much Nolu Hleko of Melanated Butter Fly for the nomination. You should definitely check out her blog as it is all about her travel and life experiences.


This award is a blogger to blogger appreciation award for their hard work, dedication, and passion put into each and every post. It was created to let readers know more about other bloggers who are deserved to be followed.

Story of how YAMVENTURES started:

It has always been our dream to explore places, especially here in Taiwan. And as we discover this beautiful country, we wanted to share all our journeys and experiences here to our fellow travelers that will be helpful in their future trips. We also love to capture great photos of the places we’ve been to and why not share it to the world who might have interest on. Our passion to travel, capture, and share is the main reason of how YAMVENTURES was created.


As we are just new in blogging, we cannot say that we are an expert on giving advices on this, but here are my few tips based on our experiences as beginners:

  1. Do not just focus on the traffic of your blog site, focus on doing what you love. Site traffic doesn’t just come along, it needs a lot of hardwork and patience, and it all starts with you. In order for you to get enough traffic, go back to your purpose of having your blog which is your passion of writing and sharing.
  2. Connect with your fellow bloggers. There are a lot of blogging groups in Facebook and other social media platforms that are supporting each other. Join and communicate with these groups to gain more knowledge and insights about blogging. Also, some blog groups can let you promote your blogposts!


Being nominated is a good feeling but you know what’s the best? It is if we can pass on this award to our fellow bloggers. So here is a list of deserving bloggers that we believe need to be discovered:

  1. Dan of IAmDanElson – Travel and Remote Working
  2. Ruby Singh of Life and Its Experiments – Travel
  3. JM Kayne of #InMyHeart – Personal and Lifestyle
  4. Charvi and Jaymine of Love With Travel – Travel and Lifestyle
  5. Mallami Adekunle of Lamlaminkings Poetry and Literature
