What I learned in my first year as a full time blogger and a freelancer

Hey guys, I have a blogiversary!!! A year ago (yes, indeed, on the 1st of April) I went to the Chamber of Commerce in Amsterdam and registered my own company – Culturetourist.com! I quit my job and felt like a true #girlboss! Except, I was terrified! And not only because I opened my company on the April’s Fools Day, but because I was afraid of that vast confusing freelance world I just entered. I never worked for myself. I never pitched for a job collaboration or sent an invoice to someone before. But, I felt like I had nothing to…

Monthly overview: January 2017

After all the Christmas festivities and a New Year’s celebration, January is always a little bit depressing for me. You should take down your Christmas tree, the weather is usually poor and days are short and dark. So, I decided that this year I will overcome January depression by traveling half the month. And it worked really well! Paris – Solo trip The year started with three days in Paris. It was a solo, sort of a business trip on which I was researching life of Impressionists in Paris. I went to some of the places they were living in…
