About Me

Hi everyone!

I’m Akhlis and I simply love blogging, writing, social media, translation and yoga. My life has been revolving around these things and I earn a living with them and have fun with them as well.

I’ve been working since 2010 as a content writer, copywriter, entrepreneurship reporter, social media manager and strategist for a property company in Jakarta, Indonesia. Aside from that, I’ve been teaching English for university students since 2006 after completing my postgraduate study at Universitas Diponegoro in 2009 and my undergraduate program at State University of Semarang in 2005. I majored in English Literature. Now I’m looking forward to learning how to teach yoga properly at Indonesia Yoga School in Jakarta with Koko Yoga and Yudhi Widdyantoro as teachers. I’ve been doing yoga since December 2010.

I’m a professional writer and I write almost about everything, ranging from academic papers to web copy and annual reports. Here’s my portfolio for you to take a glimpse at my self-hosted blog akhlis.net.

I’m definitely interested in reading your comments here, so please drop me some comments! I’d be glad to reply.

    Hi Akhlis! I found your blog by chance and here I am reading your posts religiously. I like them. Keep them coming. 🙂

    P.S. I didn’t know that you’re an Indonesian until ‘About Me’ tab told me so.

    Hi Akhlis,

    Just came across your blog, and like it much. Would love to read more, even though I sort of hate you for not gaining weight in spite of you being an emotional eater. That’s unfair to the rest of us!

    • akhlisblog 29 September 2012 / 5:32 pm

      Hi !
      Thanks for dropping by. Haha. That looks unfair but maybe there’s reason behind that. Soon we’ll find out 🙂

    Did you really study at Diponegoro University? English Department? :O


    • akhlisblog 2 March 2013 / 10:44 pm

      Hi there!
      Yeah I did. Hehe. How did you know?

  9. rmedina49 28 February 2013 / 11:38 pm

    Even though I am a dancer, do you have any tips on how to become more flexible?

    I have a tight lower back, and hamstrings, which prevent me from being able to do more.. help? 🙂
