Looking back and planning ahead

When I started this blog back in September last year, I had planned to keep it updated quite regularly. As we know, I have not been very successful. Though I have posted quite a bit initially, I have struggled to find inspiration on topics and keep engaged.

Last week I stumbled upon the Zero to Hero series of blog posts. They propose a series of 30 steps to take over 30 days to refresh your blog. The step for the first day is to write a new introduction post so  here I go.

I am a 35 year old Spanish expat that emigrated to Ireland at the beginning of the financial crisis in 2008. I have worked as a freelance translator and interpreter, as a translator and then community manager in a videogame company and I now work as a Product Manager in an online company. As you may have guessed I love photography and travelling and would someday love to make a living out of those hobbies. I am also studying acting and will hopefully be taking part in a few plays in the coming years.

The reason I started this blog was to share my work as an amateur photographer and to document my trips. I had also intended to post the occasional random post on subjects that matter to me. Over the last 6 months I have had moderate success in blogging my travels in Nepal but have really not posted much on the other subjects. I intend to ramp up my posts and will probably be splitting up the blog into different sections as I feel it will help me categorise what I write and not feel I am going off topic.

Another goal with the blog was to connect with fellow travel bloggers and photographers. I have read many blogs in my life but never really considered the social aspect of this. Whenever I heard of the blogosphere I considered it similar to a collection of individual contributors, I never stopped to consider the amount of interaction that happens between the different authors. Hopefully by focusing on this effort during 2014 I will build up a solid groups of followers and friends that I can share my work with.

I also love to interact with my readers and provide the content you would be interested in reading so if you have any ideas, please let me know what you want to read about!
