I Am Up To 500 | Valentina Cirasola | Valentina Cirasola

In 2010, after I had been writing in online forums, free-lancing in newspaper and smaller publications, I decided to open my first blog column called Home Design Master”. The column was all about homes, home style, home décor and home trends. I gave out suggestions, tips, how to do things, sometimes I talked about memories on my clients’ home projects, sometimes I joked about funny situations on the job and I am sure I provided inspiration. My business of 27 years so far has given me so much to talk about. I had over 2000 followers and touched 133 foreign countries, the closest readers were from USA, Canada and United Kingdom.

 

 

In 2010,Italo-Americano newspaper published my article on the story of Italian balconies.

In 2010, I created  the event “October Month Of Italian Style” to publicize only luxurious Italian products. For that occasion, I wrote a few articles on Bedroom and Bed style together with an image consultant.

For three years, I was a contributor with my column “The Good Life” on The PM Show by Philippe Matthew, considered the Oprah of the Internet. https://www.facebook.com/thepmshow

In March 2013 – Simon Magazine of Canada http://www.simons.ca asked me to write an article for their publication and chose to elaborate on Candlelight Magic Pollution

From Jan 2013 to Jan 2014 – I took up a Blog Challenge “From A to Z”. For the entire year, I wrote one blog a week about the Home, the subject I know best and for which I can provide a ton of information. Each letter of the alphabet became an article. I included history of furniture, custom and habits of homes through times, brought some novelties to my readers, elaborated on new products. The first article was about a bathtub. Basically, I had fun while I brought useful information and completed the challenge on time.
I am now thinking of turning that challenge into an eBook filled with interesting subjects.

In June 2013 – I accepted Wise Décor Wall Decals as a guest blogger – They shared with my readers a few thoughts on cooking as a form of love. https://valentinaexpressions.com/2013/06/28/guest-blog-cooking-is-a-form-of-love

 

Through the years, I received an infinite amount of blog awards from bloggers in my blogosphere. I was very happy and grateful to have met so many new people and became friend with so many more. I learned about new topics I would have never read and about the life of some bloggers, what they eat, where they have been, their preoccupations and goals. I feel in company of someone, even when I feel lonely.  My awards are all collected in this link, or click on the pictures to view them all. https://valentinaexpressions.com/blog-awards

 

 

However, after my three books were published, I felt the need to create a website combining blog and books together and in 2014 I migrated Home Design Master blog column.

Well…. the decision was good, but my followers and their comments didn’t migrate easily, WordPress couldn’t do much to fix the problem and I lost them all. I had to work harder to find new followers. I thought, why limit myself to only home design when I can offer so much more? Following that thought, The Good Life and Friday Fashion were created. Every Friday, I talk about fashion trends, fashion news, or express my thoughts on fashion like and dislike. The Good Like column is about Italian customs, travel, food, or memory of my growing up in Italy.

This week, I made 500 blogs and many more will come. Being a blogger has opened many doors for me, gave me the opportunity to turn my blogs into subjects when I am hired for public talks in groups and associations, aside from the fact that has opened the road for a new online business. Life is good. Thank you all. Ciao,
Valentina

As a designer in business since 1990, I am interested in helping people designing their interior and exterior spaces with an overall feeling of peace, relaxation and harmony that will draw them home eagerly. I am always looking to add that special touch with original findings to the spaces I design. Color is the focus of my business today, changing people’s energy and life force just by introducing them to colors they would have never imagined. Vogue Italia magazine, Gentry and many prominent magazines in California featured my work, I appeared on RAI, National Italian T.V. and nonetheless my story continues.
