My new website – leenakorpinen.com

I opened my own dynamic website about ten years ago. It was now time to open the new website. The internet has gone through a lot of progress in ten years. We can watch TV and other programs on the internet. If we forget to watch the news we can watch the same broadcast on our computer or phones. We can send easily videos, news and photos to others etc. We can get news very quickly e.g. using the Twitter.

Ten years ago with the opening of my website leenakorpinen.fi, I started my blog. In the future I will publish my blog on my new website – leenakorpinen.com.

Welcome to my new website!
