2017 has been a long and tough year, a lot of challenges, changes and of course, also some great achievements. In 2018 I will use this blog a bit more, to write and share stories, thoughts, and resources mostly about entrepreneurship and about my business and personal adventures.
Writing is always a good way to digest things and focus. Back in the days, I used to write 2 to 4 articles per day on HostingTalk.it. It was tough and time consuming but that helped me shape my thoughts around things, people and understand an entire industry (webhosting) I knew nothing about. A great lesson.
I am definitely planning to do that much more this year.
Several years ago I started a service called IlBlog.it – it was around 2004/2005. I was fascinated by blogs and fell in love with the idea of many platforms like Splinder and Blogger of allowing people to create a blog without technical skills. No hosting, no FTP, no WordPress. Nothing, just a very clear interface, a domain, and your blog ready to be filled with thoughts, images, videos. How did it go? Well that’s a great story for another post!
I wanted to open a blog for a long time, in 2015 it’s not a cool thing anymore (maybe the opposite?!) but who cares! I wanted to try WordPress.com for a long time, I never lost that passion for this kind of online product. I must say it’s beautiful, well designed, simple enough to use and incredibly beautiful in the way it’s organized. I love company’s mission too.
So, yes, this is a blog. My blog. I couldn’t come up with a better name than Bellasios. It’s not the first time I use it (yes, another post as well). I’ll use it to talk about me and what I love in my work and in my life. Entrepreneurship and tech will just be a big part of this blog. I’ll use it also to comment that thousands of articles I save every day in my Instapaper that I’ll never read……
