Happy 5th Blogiversary to our humble abode!
I couldn’t let this month go by without mentioning how the blog is turning into a senior, now that is reaching its 5th year. Let’s celebrate, shall we?
It’s a challenging feat to keep running a blog as petite as this while combining it with a regular (paid) job. This time, instead of mumble about it or hiding in our virtual world (sometimes guilty to be honest, ha!), I decided that this was the perfect occasion to make the blog even more real than ever by inviting you to my “real” job premises!
Some of you may already know that I work on a research group in the University, a really far away universe from the one I am able to explore in the blog. I think that duality is precisely what makes it so important for me to keep doing this blog thing: photography-wise makes me grow and having a “duty” is what makes me step out of the comfort zone and take more pics, have more ideas and create.
It was fun to dress with something I wouldn’t normally wear to my office. I work at the University so there’s not a dress code whatsoever, different from jeans and a sweatshirt/t-shirt (yay, right?) and I am able to keep my kawaii style. However, I would surely skip from this outfit the purse and I usually prefer wearing for work skirts or wide leg trousers over a sweet dress like this one. Do you have a working dress code?
I know that lately there have been less posts than usual, when my real job gets too intense, but that doesn’t mean that I don’t care about the blog or that I’m just keeping it up as a routine, quite the contrary, it is even more precious to me. I don’t know if it will make sense in many more years to come, but right now I still think about it like a good olde diary that I can share with lots of interesting like-wise minded people from whom I have a lot to learn.
Am I too old-fashioned? Are blogs really becoming something else? Or even disappearing? When most people are only on Instagram, which purpose do blogs have? Having you own place, exactly as you like it, without “nasty algorithms” or “unwanted ads” is something I appreciate, here I have the freedom to construct complete stories in pictures, not only little bits.
We will make also our typical blogiversary recap in the next post to wrap the month and have been working on some news. Thanks for being here, you mean a world to us!
