why this box?

This is a casual blog about anything that sparks my interest! I usually write about Tech, Social Media, Food, Photography, Games, and other beautiful ideas.

The blog name came about one day when I was pondering my love for boxes. Why would I choose a particular box over another? Sterilite, Rubbermaid, cardboard boxes of different shapes and sizes… What makes each box unique and special?

I strung the words together.. why.. this.. box? The resulting name sounded quirky & representative of my personality, so it stuck!

  3. Hi, Danielle! How to describe your blog? Well the best word that I can think of is that it’s very ‘welcoming’. 🙂 I’m catching up on Zero to Hero—Day 9 and 11 for now—and that’s how I came across your blog. 🙂 I will be back to check out more of your blog soon. 🙂

  4. Hi Danielle,

    I hope you’re having a fantastic week!

    I wanted to quickly introduce myself, as I am the Community Manager for Zomato Vancouver. We recently announced some pretty big news and want to keep you informed!

    UrbanSpoon is now a part of Zomato, one of the world’s largest restaurant search and discovery services. We wanted to personally reach out to you – the most active Urbanspoon users – to thank you for the amazing role you have played in bringing Urbanspoon to where it is today!

    Our teams are working closely together to ensure a smooth transition from Urbanspoon to Zomato and we will continue to share new updates with you. There will be tons of exciting new features that you can look forward to!

    We could grab a coffee sometime, I’d love to get to know you and discuss the transition and answer any questions you might have 🙂

    Please let me know if you have some free time to get together!

    Looking forward to hearing from you 🙂


    • Thanks for your message, Sophia! I would love to meet up to learn more about Zomato and the UrbanSpoon transition – it sounds exciting! Please shoot me an email at whythisbox AT gmail.com, and we can set something up! 🙂 Thank you! – Danielle
