That time again. This blog is on “pause”

Sorry my dear readers but it's time for another holiday. I'm heading to Tenerife soon and will hopefully come back with some stories and loads of pictures.

This Blog is not for Sale

It's true, this blog is not for sale (or at least not on sale). Might have touched on this subject before but I wanted to write a little bit more on this.

Money and Blogging

This is not a subject I've come across in other blogs yet. At least not one presented in a completely transparent way to the reader. Funnily enough money is still quite a taboo subject for many people. I have only been spending money directly on my blog since last year. Prior to that I used … Continue reading Money and Blogging

Why do I have a blog?

Honestly I am not sure I know what the answer is! But I am writing about it anyway. I have been writing since I was in school. I was super lucky to have great Portuguese language teachers and they have always encouraged me to keep writing. Back then I wrote short fictional stories that I … Continue reading Why do I have a blog?
