Finally in Berlin – check out my new blog

So much has happened since my last post. You may remember when I mentioned that I’m embarking on a great adventure: taking a long sabbatical leave from work and moving to Berlin? Well, I’m here. Arrived today. We’ve been traveling in Germany already for a week or so, meeting family and friends. Has been a lovely ride…

Sabbatical year ahead

In my last blog post I mentioned that my personal happiness project is moving ahead. Well, it really is. I’m taking a year-long job alternation leave from work and moving to Berlin, my favorite city of all. I almost can’t believe it’s all happening. It’s exciting, frightening, and wonderful at the same time! Have you ever…

Bikini revolution – Monokini 2.0 needs your support

Yesterday was a great day. I got to meet the fantastic Monokini 2.0 team with some of my Huuma colleagues. We were so impressed with the work of Nutty Tarts and the rest of the people involved in the Monokini 2.0 project that we wanted to see if there was any room for cooperation. There is!…

World Environment Day – how to create good quality content

What an interesting week it has been. After being chosen to the top5 with my World Environment Day video, I’ve spent the entire week on the campaign trail – promoting World Environment Day, telling people about my video, commenting, talking, tweeting and blogging more.

It’s always so exciting to campaign, be it for a politician, cause, or even just an event.

World Environment Day – made it to the top5

World Environment Day – my video

I’m taking part in the World Environment Day blogging contest again. As you may remember, last year we wrote traditional blog posts about sustainable consumption and food waste in particular, but this year it’s all about video blogging. The broad theme for #WED2014 is small islands and climate change. If last year I worked on the…

Huuma magazine launched

Huuma magazine is out. We had the launching seminar on Friday 10 January at the elegant Savoy Theatre in Helsinki, partied till late in the night, and went to sleep with the magazine on our night stands. I’ve been involved in many printing processes before, but never quite felt this way about the final product. The…

How did we manage to crowdfund Huuma?

In my previous post I listed the basics about our fantastic Huuma project: the new magazine that aims to inspire, excite, empower, encourage and bring joy to its readers. In this post I will tell you how we totally nailed it. Not only did we reach our financial goals on Mesenaatti.me, the Finnish crowdfunding platform,…
