Hello all of you,
This is my first ever post on my blog. I agree that it’s still a little bit bare at the moment. But I promise that it will fill up soon. I’m not sure what will be the main subject though.
You see, I’m the kind of person who gets passionate about a lot of things, who start working at projects eagerly and without measure. I love making things. But that’s also my issue. I can’t choose a THING. I love too many THINGS. Not too many actually, just A LOT.
I love drawing, decorating, making collages, carving stamps, making clothes, designing logos, websites, baking… That’s probably enough. There’s a lot to say about that but time will come.
A first post on a blog make it sound like I’m a newbie, but that’s not the case. I created my first blog in 2008, when I went to Oslo to do an internship in a design agency. At that point I wanted friends and family to see and read about what I was up to and I didn’t have any future purpose for it. It was on blogspot, like most of us did at the time. It was kind of ugly but I was ok with that. After my 3 months of internship it stopped. You can still see it here.
Then, in 2010, I created my first bi-lingual blog. It was essentially a baking blog and I really loved doing it. I didn’t have a job at the time and baking was the thing I enjoyed the most. I loved playing with photography, but the main issue is that I was too shy to share any of it on social media. So I never got much comments from it and, incidentally, I stopped posting after a year. Here is the link.
I also discovered Tumblr in between. I created fysugarquill out of love for Harry Potter, but the main purpose of the page was to post image of food taken from films. I wanted to share my love of food as well as a passion for film decor. Once again, it lasted for a bit over a year and I stopped.
The main issue is that I didn’t have a real purpose for these blogs, or only a temporary one and I was too scared to speak out loud. So eventually, I lost passion for them because no one was really responding (which was entirely my fault).
But in 2015, I had a clear project with my best friend. We were going to set up a blog to share our ideas around event planning and decorating. Things seemed to make sense at last. I started to visualise what it could be in the future. I created a Facebook page, even a Twitter account (which I really don’t understand) and shared ideas and blog posts almost every day. But then, lack of enthusiasm on both sides which was caused by the fact we leave in 2 different countries
and failed to find time to talk about the project meant that after a few months it got really quiet. I was very disappointed because I had designed to blog myself and my soon-to-be husband had built it. I took it offline.
Two years went by. We bought a house, had a baby and got married. So many times I thought about how good it would be to share some of my experiences but didn’t have the place to do it. I wanted to be sure I would keep doing it. I wanted it for a clear purpose.
So today is when things go live again and it had better work! Now seriously, I cannot promise I will be here but my determination has never been so strong. I am ready to give some tough love and speak my mind. But mostly, I am ready to share with you all the things I do and that I believe you can do too. So hold on, it’s going to get bumpy but if you stay with me I know I can
carry on forever.
