Hello everyone. This is the first post on my first blog! I’m Nicola. Welcome to The Pursuit of Sustainable Luxury!
My decision process to become a blogger was a rather amusing one. Since the topic is on sustainability I am well aware the importance of a sustainable blog. On this issue:
Fear #1: For the past years and still on going, I have such difficulty keeping updated on the numerous social media platforms and keeping my sanity. And being a mother of two young preschoolers, it is constant distractions day in day out, do I really need to start another virtual communication channel and BLOG?
Fear #2: I’m a rather private person – I never post my oh-so-interesting pictures on Facebook to be liked. I hardly ‘like’ any posts. I don’t like virtual friends. So why blogging at all?
Fear #3: How do you blog exactly? What is RSS, how to follow, how to upload, what is a gravatar? To tackle Fear #3, I called up my cousin who is 12 years younger, a competent blogger, for a crash course over some camomile tea. After speaking my mind out loud for 10 minutes… she randomly took out a book from her bag – “IF you Fear – you should just do it”… (or something along the line.) The actual wordings didn’t matter. It was a moment of enlightenment for me. So here I am – before knowing what to expect, knowing how to setup the blog and how to RSS or subscribe to somethings which I yet to have accounts, I’m doing it.
So my answer to Fear #1 – Please be aware that this blog takes no priority over many other matters in my life.
For Fear #2 – Haha, I’m throwing myself out for this item – as I believe trust and honesty is needed to establish any relationship.
Fear #3 – If this blog is ever down – strange things appear, getting awkward here and there – I am most probably fixing something somewhere somehow. Bear with me!
My fear all boils down to a genuine passion to make a difference for Mother Earth.
Ooooh, just got an email from WordPress announcing the launch of SoundCheck. Maybe I can even put some music on my blog (if I know how to set it up, haha.)
It is all an exciting day for me to officially launch The Pursuit of Sustainable Luxury.
It’s 5am Hong Kong time. Better hit the sack now!
