For those of you who started to follow me back in the days of LaCanadese, welcome back! For those of you who are new, I hope you enjoy my writing.
I started my LaCanadese blog in 2012, when I moved to Italy to pursue a dream. I enjoyed writing about my adventures overseas, especially because it was an easy way to let people know what I was up to. Fast-forward to 2016, and I am back in Canada with seemingly little to blog about. I kept being asked about my blog, and I started to feel like LaCanadese should have a FAQ section!
Q: Olivia! I miss your posts! When will you write something new?
A: Would you consider paying for me to travel around the world for one year? I think I could continue blogging for a bit on that.
Q: Olivia! We were talking about your blog the other day, and remembering what a great writer you were. Will you continue writing?
A: Should I get royalties for my blog posts that people keep talking about? Can I just keep riding on the limited number of posts I made? Am I the Fawlty Towers of blogging?
Q: Olivia, are you alive?
A: Yes, just because I have reduced my online presence, I promise you that I am still alive and well.
Q: Okay, Olivia, this is getting ridiculous. You had better blog immediately, or you’re out of the family.
A: But, how can I write for a blog that translates to “The Canadian in Milan” when I am clearly no longer living in Milan?
It took a while, but I have finally come up with a direction for my new blog. To start with, many posts will be a re-write of what you may have already read on LaCanadese, but these new posts will focus strictly on travel, style, and food. If you know me, you know that I am passionate about all of these!
My hope is that this blog can become a go-to for anyone looking for travel or dining recommendations around the world, and anyone who enjoys fashion and reading my musings on it.
PS – If you have ideas for a topic you’d like me to discuss, please let me know in the comments!
