If any of you has read my About page and some of my previous posts, you will already know, how much I enjoy a good challenge. And no better way to start the new year, with one. The Daily Post at WordPress are running the Zero to Hero challenge, consisting of 30 bite size assignments, one for each day. Day 1 is about introducing yourself. Now having this blog for over a year, seems a bit silly to introduce myself, at this stage, but why not? 🙂
My name is Vasiliki and I am Greek. I have been living in the UK for the past 10+ years. I came to England to do a MA in Creative Writing and, well decided to stay. You will hear me moaning non-stop about the British weather and the absence of any summer whatsoever, but also about how cold I am. Between you and me anything below 20c degrees is winter for me, unless it’s accompanied by sun. For proof of evidence, here’s my explanation for what we call The British Summer. (sadly no one liked that post)
Three years ago I moved to Brighton to work in a publishing house. I am a foreign rights person, which is much less complicated than what it sounds. In essence I’m a travelling sales person. I started this blog as an experiment, after we published a book on blogging. The company I work for, publishes craft books, among other subjects, from which I usually pick a project in order to test it. I used the blogging book in exactly the same way and this is how Delightfully Peculiar was created. I kept the blog as a means of monitoring my travelling (even with work only, it’s quite a bit), my love for fashion and handmade things and of course my love for books. Yes, I have been advised against blogging without a specific subjects, but I can’t help it, I’m a girl of many hats and I get bored easily, hehe!
I recently started blogging about my sewing clothes experience, after having being inspired by other people’s beautiful blogs, so I’m going to carry on, on that route, but there will definitely be travelling, some books (my new job involves a wide list specialising in fashion and textiles but shhh for now) and of course all sorts of crafts and fabrications. I just love how easily one can combine, pictures and words while blogging.
I guess all I want to do with this blog, is to get in touch with people, whom sometimes you don’t get the chance to meet as you walk down a street, to be inspired and inspire others with my posts and above all to be part of the fun the blogosphere is 🙂 I haven’t been very consistent with my blogging and I don’t like a lot scheduling my posts (it ends up being work then) but I will do my best to keep you and me busy for this year!
