Hello out there!

My name is Verena Fiona. I’m full time post-graduate, part time sales advices at my local H&M store and since June 2013 hobbyblogger. I know the depths of the internet are full of blogs – full of lifestyleblogs, cookingblogs, literatureblogs, gamingblogs, musicblogs, makeupblogs, travelblogs and the of course fashionblogs. So why the f*** should anyone add a new? The answer is simple: Why not? One more would do no harm. I am writing this blog just for me out of the joy of writing – and perhaps for some of you out there.

Now you could ask, why I’m blogging in the first place? The answer is simple – and a little unusual: Because a lifestyle magazine told me so! In June 2013 I read in the German Glamour about some ways to increase the anticipation of a holiday. One of these ways was said to be writing a blog about the preparations. So I started my tumblr, about of my and my boyfriends first travel to Athens. This blog still exists, by the way, and there I post my travel memories also in German.

My blog is supposed to be mainly about travels. But although I do have many dream destinations, I unfortunately have only 30 vacation days each year. Too few! So I’m trying to fill the gaps with other content. I studied literature and now I am writing my Ph.D. thesis about Greek literature, so i will try to post something about literature and I work for H&M so fashion is also nice topic

Then, one of my Instagram friends, Wendy van Soest wrote about switching her nice blog from blogspot to wordpress in order to appear more professional and committed. It looked so easy, I decided to try it, too. But Wendy hosted her blog herself, so after downloading the wordpress package, I didn’t now what to do next. Being the newbie that I was that time, I decided to take a step back and copied an pasted my tumblr posts to blogspot. (If there was an import tool or something like that, I just didn’t find it.) But blogspot didn’t convince me at all. I was a newbie with high claims, you know! After being a blogspot blogger for only 3 days, I copied and pasted my posts here.

I hope you like being here.

  1. Interesting from a blogging point of view. I could write German, but your english is very good and my German is too much influenced with Schwiitzer tütsch and I am not so good at getting the genders right. I am English. I began blogging in Yahoo 350. It was cancelled and I transferred to Multiply, a very good site. This site went into marketing and eventually went bankrupt. I always had a steady back up in blogger, but only a backup. I have one or two colleagues there from my Multiply days, but it is not a good side for blogging. At first I was only posting my flash fiction stuff in WordPress, but eventually went completely to WordPress. With the experience I have collected over the past ten years, I am glad that I discovered WordPress. They are not perfect, but the best I have found up to now. I was interested in the german translation of a greek author. I read a lot, both in German and english and like to broaden my Horizont when I can. Something Greek would be completely different.

  2. Your blog intrigues me and would like to follow. If I could learn German along the way even better.
    I might have messed up with an earlier comment because I couldn’t find the follow button. 🙂

      1. Guten tag. I’m not sure what happened recently, but I noticed that I was no longer following you. This was not intentional on my part. I have corrected that by clicking on follow again. Regards.
