A Short History

This blog was founded by Jay Hee Seo, the chief writer, in 2010. It started as a simple and small website hosted on Blogger with a different name – MyGuideMaster. That’s the original name of this blog.

Jay Hee set up this blog to serve as a playground. As a person who grew up in a country with a unique language, he came up with an idea to create a blog to practice English. He did not expect that it will gain decent traffic after a few months.

The first batch of articles published at StarrGuide.com are 50% Korean and 50% English, but he made it available in 99% English so it will reach more viewers worldwide.

In 2012, Jay Hee decided to rebrand the blog to StarrGuide. So, from myguidemaster.blogspot.com, the blog URL was changed to starrguide.com which is registered under eNom. Only the URL was changed, and the hosting remained in Blogger. It was the first time he spent a few bucks for this blog.

As years go by, the traffic is improving, and he decided to transfer the blog from Blogger to WordPress. He thought it was time to move to a serious blogging business after years of preparation and research. Blogger has been a good hatchling place, and it’s time to grow more on WordPress where authors can fully control and manage the blog. SEO was the other reason why the blog was moved. With WordPress, there are many ways to optimize a website.

StarrGuide at Present and Beyond

Currently, StarrGuide is continuously publishing new guides, and also updating old articles from time to time. There are now two co-authors in this blog. The other one is Jae Hyuk.

Aside from the hosting solution provider, A Small Orange, we’re proud to run this website as well on Genesis Framework with a child theme designed by Yoast.

We hope that this blog will prosper more in the years to come.
