Happy birthday Global Inspirations Design Blog

Behind The Scenes

Two years ago to this date, on February 22nd, 2014, I embarked on this adventure called blogging. With little to no clue as to why and how, I simply followed my intuition and an inner voice that it was something I should do. Here I am 38 blog posts, 1 award and 2 shortlist nominations later with a tremendous sense of achievement, because it is something I have created out of nothing.

I am not here to brag, on the contrary, I am here to encourage you to also follow your gut feeling and see where it leads you. Maybe you also wanted to start a blog, then sit down right now and start to write, even if it terrifies you (take a look at my very first post Travel advice from a design addict and you will see you are not alone!). Maybe you always wanted to start a social club or maybe you always wanted to sell your hand made cards. My advice to you is, just do it (as some famous sports shoe company would say…)!

If you have been reading some of my previous posts, you will know that I usually have quite a lot to say… However, today I am going to cut it short, because I have a glass of bubbly waiting for me. If there is one thing I have learned on this path of entrepreneurship it is that you got to celebrate every single milestone along the way!

Just remember follow your dreams, because as one of my life motto goes: ‘Where there is a will, there is a way.’

Cheers to my blog and good luck to you!
