The blog has been around 2005, as an impulse purchase from those ‘free iPod’ websites. Yes I stupidly fell for that! But the name was too good to pass so I kept with it and that’s how I started blogging actively around 2007.
It started as a personal online journal relaying stories from my academic years: from middle school to college. Presently it is just a blog with no niche and anything goes – from random topics of discussions, posts of opinions, personal posts, to concert photo dumps, reviews of things I love and are noteworthy, events, food, travel photo dumps!
Prior to getting my own .com (.org at first, So Stellar just acquired the .com extension in 2015) my previous places online are as follows:
- everlasting-misery.com/anna (Aug 2002)
- fad3d.org/360 (Dec. 2002 – July 2003)
- digitalgirl.nu/360 (2004)
- shecries.org/360 (April 2004 – Aug. 2005)
- so-stellar.org (2007-2015)
- so-stellar.com (2015-Present)
So Stellar is inspired by the song Stellar by the alternative rock band Incubus from their 1999 album Make Yourself. The blog was previously hosted by Keng of turbo-geek.org. Presently the blog is hosted by A Small Orange x Namecheap.
