New Project: Inspiration Mittemellan

leave a comment »

I have this thing about being “in between.” In between two cultures, two languages, two countries… it’s the topic of many conversations. During a recent visit to Portland, my best friend in Sweden (who also has the whole Swedish/American thing going for her) and I were having this discussion, and after much talk about the things from both places that inspire us, we decided to embark on a new project: Inspiration Mittemellan.

The focus will be on everyday inspiration from America and Sweden, including (among other things) food, design and nature. It’s still in the building process, but go check it out!

Keen on quinoa…

with one comment

I finally went for it and started a food blog; I had to do something constructive with all of those food photos I was taking. But it isn’t your average food blog — it’s solely devoted to quinoa. I know there are plenty of my friends out there contemplating whether or not I have lost my mind because I seem so obsessed with a grain, but I like to think of it as a way to come up with a lot of new and creative ways to play with the hard-to-pronounce food.

Hopefully there will soon be many recipes and lots of colorful, Bon Appetit-esque photos to enjoy. To check it out, click here.

Pology Culturist blog

leave a comment »

My first piece of writing ever published online was over at Pology. It’s a fantastic online culture journal with narratives and photography from around the globe. The journal was on hiatus for the better part of last year, but it has come back in full swing. I hadn’t visited the site in awhile and but when I checked it out today realized that I had been missing out on the Pology Culturist blog (actually the source of the video below). Be sure to give it a look.

New gig at Written Road

with one comment

Sometimes it’s easy to feel like the blogosphere has become my life… which it has. Today marks my offical start as a blogger over at Written Road. Sponsored by BootsnAll, Written Road is a blog focused on the travel writing industry, so expect a lot of posts on market leads but maybe a little bit about what it’s like to write for a living as well. I’m actually very excited to be part of the Written Road team because it’s one of the blogs that I have continuously read over the last two years; feels good to be working for something that has been a staple in my own travel writing experiences. So here’s to more time spent blogging… (Oh, and the photo? That’s what my typical morning looks like…)

More cool photo action from Wend

leave a comment »

Friday Photo was such a good idea that we decided to use it over at Wend. Today’s is a shot from the Inca Trail taken by fellow travel writer and photographer Lola Akinmade. If you want to get on the Wend Friday Photo mailing list — meaning you get a sweet weekly shot in your inbox — send a shout out to fphoto[at]wendmag.com.

As of today Wend has a flickr account as well, and there’s even a Wend pool, which you can add photos to in the hopes that they get featured on the Wend blog. Check it all out here.
