V3con is very excited that Lynn Chen will be speaking at V3con on Saturday, Aug. 25, 2012 at the Japanese American National Museum.
So let’s get to know Lynn a little better…
Why did you decide to blog about your dieting and disordered eating experience?
I knew that when I was recovering, I wanted to know I wasn’t alone. I felt it was important to tell the truth, especially as someone who’s in the public eye.
In one sentence, please describe your approach to food.
How has the blog helped you to tackle your dieting and disordered eating struggles?
It allows me to channel my obsession with food into a positive, creative way.
What advice do you have for someone looking to start a blog about a personal struggle?
Listen to your gut, not comments. There are a lot of haters out there, and when you’re being vulnerable, the anonymous ones may show up and make you wonder whether it’s worth sharing. Nice feedback is nice, but ultimately, this is your own journey. Do it for you.
