My story with the blog

I can’t talk about the blog, not to mention a little of my life story.

I’m enjoying to re-inaugurating the new layout and I want to reintroduce me here. I want to open my heart again to tell you a little bit of who I am and my history with the blog.

From 9am to 6pm I’m an IT business processes consulting – but I have been working in a lot of positions such as telemarketing operator, Nanny, and a receptionist at a gym among other things in this life.
I have a degree in advertising with a specialization in digital communication and Information technology with an emphasis in project management.
I studied photography, design thinking, fashion, dance, mythology, music, theology, drama and I think I’m going to study other 1000 things in this life.
But, before my life be that I share here I had to change my whole world with small actions of kindness. That’s where I decided to write about everything that made me happy as a form of distraction.
Gradually, my first blog – in PT-BR Coisitas de Luxo – a blog-bazar that among the few hours in a lan-house or school taught me to build my vision of beauty, fashion, and consumption.
Today I know that when I started blogging I was living a very sad time, but it was transformative.
I was a poor girl with low self-esteem and inferiority complex that was hitting his face on the wall. My job from my Dad and a few security guards who thought I had. It was a battle to find the way back to life after the fight.
But, at the same time, with my first blog I won the first money coming from the Internet. Followed by a lot of freelancers opportunities that have saved, several times, the life in my home.
It was in the first beginning of this world of blogs, the internet was a new discovery and I have begun to dream of a better life.
Even my 20-something years, I had no dreams and didn’t even know it was possible to dream.
The blog was my escape, I filtered my days talking about fashion and beauty, places and flavors … Starting a big change in my life.
Of the blog I started work with the internet, write to companies and build a career freelancer in communication. Needless to say, the pieces saved ($) the life many times, right?
Then followed life, the freelances have become jobs after college, specialization and even a company.
The pleasure of having my virtual space never abandoned me, even in the midst of depression: writing makes me lighter.
So, here we are!
11 years after placing my first blog on air I keep writing … I still have the blog as part of my life.
Some people don’t understand, but this is my story 🙂

Why have a blog?

Why have a blog nowadays?

When I started thinking about a new blog, again, the questions were the first to emerge.

With almost 29 years, two cats, a good job, a nice House that not finished decorating, new car in the garage, routine, marriage, House, life … Everything has become reason to wonder why have a blog?

Not to mention the opinion of others, that is another chapter of my story. 

After months of thinking and putting impecílios I started to remember the reasons that made me create my first blog: the Things of luxury in 2005.

I remembered that difficult time, which was followed by a terrible depression, where the only thing that made me think about things “better” was the blog.

Write and think about things that I liked, but they were light years far from my reality, was what kept me alive for that period of mourning and loss.

It was with this motivation that I actually reinvented myself my space on the internet and get a taste for writing, every day a few lines …

Write anyway.

Do it for you.

Even if it’s not a success

Even if it’s not really deep

Even if you’re not confident

Even if you think you’re going to do it later (trust me, you won’t)

Even if someone wrote about the same thing this morning

Even if it’s Friday and no one will see your text

Even if it’s just some random thoughts

Even if it’s very intimate

Even if you only have a few minutes

Even if you didn’t even finish

Write anyway.

You don’t need to write a masterpiece.

Write your thoughts easier.

Start with a line.

Put some ideas out of your head.

Put into words.

See what happens next.

Do it now.

Because, why not?

You know, my father is almost 60 years old today.

He told me he always dreamed of writing a book, since 20 years.

He never did that.

Because he hasn’t found the perfect title.

He ended up giving up.

You will also spend 40 years thinking about writing something before you start?


If you think about writing

Even if it’s just for you

Write anyway.
