So, there you have it. Another lifestyle blog from a blonde twenty-something right here on the internet. The truth is that I’ve been thinking about launching this blog for a while… A very long while.
And so it begins…
My blogging journey started long before this website existed. It was in 2009, long before everyone including your mom had a blog. A couple of my friends made an “online magazine” for a school project, and I decided to join as their beauty editor. The website was pretty successful, but we (read: I) lacked the motivation to follow through when life got a bit busier.
I did however decided to start a personal blog (lifestyle blog was a word that didn’t exist back then) and have been writing on that blog ever since. But, times change and so did I. Writing in Dutch was no longer a challenge; heck it even became my job (but that is a story for another blog post). So I was looking for something new.
When my husband and I moved to Calgary in April 2018, I knew that I wanted to write more in English. I had the odd translate job here and there, and I had been the editor for an English tourist website about Amsterdam, but I had never really written about my-kind-of-stuff in English.
So that is it, I wish it were more inspirational of deep. But it is really just a case of “I wanted to do it, so I did.”
What are those my-kind-of-stuff topics I like to write about?
You may have gathered what this blog is about while glancing over the main menu. But if you didn’t, I don’t blame you ;-)! This will be a place where I write about my adventures as an entrepreneur that is on an everlasting quest for balance in her life. I want to share my mistakes and lessons and hope to inspire others to take action and live their own dream life!
So I will write about business stuff, women in business, how to find balance, how to enjoy your life when you are ambitious and whatever else I would like to read on a blog that is for ambitious women who know that there is more to life than their careers.
I hope you will stick around and please come at me with your feedback and grammar corrections ;)!
Lots of love,
