Welcome to This Jones' Blog: a platform and voice to a whole bunch of things.  

I'm not the "keep up with the Joneses" type of Jones. 
I am This Jones and this is my blog. 
The long version about me can be found on This Jones

This Jones blog, was previously named Things. It started as the voice to my 13 year old self who back then documented life in each age group hoping to publish a book. Today, I blog about recipes, places, DIY's, illustrate stories in cartoon-like-stick-men... and still hope to publish a book. 

I also push the capabilities of my iPhone's camera and make videos on the side. I believe pictures say 1000 words, but also believe videos capture moments words can't describe. 

I started blogging in 2011 and have a modest following on social media, but boast with 37 500+ page views from visitors all over the world. My blog has also been featured on:
  • Inspired Living 
  • The Thailand Daily 
  • Bloggers.com - editors choice in 2011 (sadly the site does not exist today)
  • Urban Compass 

Thank you for taking the time to stop by.
