Site description :
How it all startedHongkiat.com was the brainchild of Hongkiat Lim (pronounced hong-key-att) who back in the year 2007 was stuck in an unhappy job environment. He stopped short of leaving the job because he was heading a team of very creative co-workers, although the circumstances he was stuck in made it very difficult to be productive – at least, not in his own work.
Instead and in an effort to cope, he indulges in a blog that essentially formed the backbone of today’s hongkiat.com website – a site which shares things that designers and bloggers look forward to reading. The coping mechanism evolved into a hobby, then a passive, but sound, income-earning channel. In mid-2007, he took the plunge: quit his job and devoted himself to the blog full-time.
