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…

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 great! Questions of the climate change, rising sea level, and…

World Environment Day – the campaign trail

It’s always so exciting to campaign, be it for a politician, cause, or even just an event. There’s something in the horizon that you want to see happening, and campaigning brings the horizon a little closer, widens the circle of people who are interested and at best, creates new ways of thinking and acting, widens your…

World Environment Day – made it to the top5

You may remember my post some weeks ago, where I showed you the video I made for UNEP’s video blogging contest for the World Environment Day? It seems the video made it to the TOP 5. Wow. I was pretty speechless when I heard the news. But of course, I should have learned by now:…

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…

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,…

Another week, another theme

Every once in a while, I change the theme I’m using in this blog. Not only is it refreshing and fun, as the WordPress theme archives are a big bundle of joy, but the change also pushes me to think about blogging from a slightly different angle than before. The changes may seem rather small, but…

New types of job application: insert video here

I recently spent the most amazing get-away-weekend with good friends. Lots of relaxing and talking, plenty of delicious food and numerous glasses of bubbly. One of my friends, who was there, teaches in a university of applied science. One of her many teaching topics is job searching: latest trends in her field, up-to-date tricks and…

Insert elegant evil and refuse to comment – House of Cards

In the aftermath of World Environment Day blogging contest by UNEP and TreeHugger, I started watching House of Cards, a TV series only available at Netflix. So far I’ve only seen two episodes, and already the series is far better than I expected. But then again, how could anyone fail with Kevin Spacey? It seems…
