What is secretoptimist?

secretoptimist.com is the blog of Wendy Leung, a technical professional living in the Greater Vancouver area of British Columbia, Canada.

This blog is mostly about topics I’m interested in: crafting, tech geekery, reading, food and general goings on in this little corner of the world.

So…what’s the deal with “secretoptimist”?

A few years ago an online friend on her blog posted a little Q&A asking people she knew to describe themselves in exactly two words.

I thought about it for a bit and finally I came up with “secret” and “optimist”. Why? It just…clicked. To most people who meet me the first time I may seem a little wry and dour, but I look for the silver lining in all things. Honest. 🙂

Say, haven’t I seen this website in a different incarnation before?

Probably…I’ve been tinkering with this website on and off for the past 16+ years, mostly as a space to experiment with installing blogs and doing website layouts.
