Hi there! How is your 2016 starting? Mine is really slow, even though I made a lot of plans! I’m still trying to put things in order and adapt to our new life in Berlin, living with all my stuff yet to unpack, without a routine whatsoever… Oh well… What I plan not always corresponds to the slow and bureaucratic reality.

I have great plans for this little blog of mine, but those depend mostly of our renting situation, that finally, oh finally, got solved! But I’ll tell you all about that in other occasion. For now, I want to introduce some changes around packmahome.

You see, when I started this blog I wanted to go slow and slowly find my pace. I wanted to see how far I could go and discover what I was willing to do to grow the blog (you can read my blog manifesto to see what I’m talking about).

After almost four months of posting regularly once a week I truly believe I’m capable of doing more. I found my own rhythm, I still feel highly motivated and I’m quite sure that I have what it takes to create more original content on a more frequent basis, like let’s say twice a week 😉 soooo…

Take note, from now on this is the blog’s new schedule:

I’m posting twice a week, on Mondays and Thursdays!

Stay tuned!

I made a poster, I printed it and put it on my wall so I can look at it and remember my principles. Keep reading…


MIX_hello world

Well hello there! I’m so excited to be here! Be very welcome to packmahome, my brand new blog.
This is not my first blog, in fact this is my fourth! I first started blogging in 2009, when I first moved abroad, with the sole purpose of documenting my life to my family and friends. Then I needed a place to show all my artistic creations, so I created another blog. After a while I stopped blogging because I was too focused in my day jobs (kindergarten teacher and Portuguese teacher), but my hands simply couldn’t stop creating and my mind couldn’t stop imagining new things to do, so I made another blog.
