In March 2017 I couldn’t imagine what Lithuania would have meant to me.
I opened a blog in English with the original scope of improving my writing skills.
I blogged in Italian many years ago but this time it was different.
I started doing it once in a while, without fixing any objective and results were simply not there.
February 2017 was the month I’ve started blogging and the one with the best results so far.
Until October 2018 I rarely reached 100 views per month which as simple as it is means that keeping a journal would have been a much better option.
In November something changed in my life. It was more of a twist in a deep personal sense and I may talk about it in the future on this blog. From that time I started developing several skills for the sake of learning and thought this blog could be a great place to document it.
It all started with a concept I’ve largely discussed all around various blog posts (the so called 30 days to success method). It is no black magic and to be brief I committed to the idea of blogging weekly too.
The two things (translated: continuity and purpose), together with the idea that working on my blog related skills could be counted in, lead me to some results that I am happy to share with you.
There is still a lot of space for improvement and at the moment I am trying to work on something more specific, but what I want to stress here is that simply sticking to clear and measurable criteria can literally make all the difference.
In the last months this blog turned into Baol, made me develop new skills and connections. It has taken me where I could not previously have imagined to be. It has helped undoubtedly to focus on better solving better problems and ultimately to the surprising discover that talking about the whole story, publicly, has been helpful for so much people.
Next week I will take part, together with many other foreigners living in Lithuania, to this wonderful event. We will sing Lithuanian songs and read Lithuanian poems here and if you may not be able to make it I will be glad to talk about it here.
If you like this post follow Baol is on Facebook and Linkedin! If you read until here you surely deserve a little spoiler: on May the 14th, in Saint Catherine Church, I will sing! Now you definitely have a reason more not to miss it!
