Episode 9 – Jocelyn “Joz” Wang
You know you were a true “early adopter” when you were blogging before most people could imitate the grating screech of dial-up internet! Jocelyn Wang (more commonly known online as Joz Joz Joz) was blogging about her personal life when the internet was not yet littered with people who were comfortable sharing photos of what they ate for dinner last night. There was life before Facebook!

In this podcast we talk about missing out on a Taiwanese-American rite of passage, “The Love Boat,” and how her an overdramatic post about the big sty in her eye could get ANY traction online. Also, we discuss what it means to get comfortable with having an online persona including making the decision to write about a very personal loss in the family. I mean…she even made national news because her likeness was used in some racist camera craziness! (Yeah. Cameras can be racist too?)
There’s also tons of nuts and bolts discussions about what it means to be a blogger or even attempt to make a living from producing content on a blog platform versus other formats. We learn all about how Joz was flexing her online journalistic presence through her collaborative Asian American issues blog, 8Asians.com.
Though this interview was recorded last year, let’s all congratulate her for becoming the new Asian American Journalists Association – Los Angeles chapter President, National Advisory Board Representative!
