Now on Pinterest

Posted on Jan 30, 2013 | 0 comments

I’ve been working on building a Pinterest board for OppositeOcean for a while. At first I was using my personal Pinterest account and had created just one board for OppositeOcean but I experienced a lot of limitations with this. Therefore, I’ve created a separate Pinterest account just for OppositeOcean where I will only pin things related to Belgium. I wanted to be able to create more boards so that the links would be more useful and organized. I think it will be a fun and easy way to organize different restaurants, museums, stores, attractions, videos or anything else that I find interesting that is relevant for the blog.

Check it out if you would like to see some of my favorite Belgian things!

Do you have any suggestions about how I could make the Pinterest boards more functional? Don’t hesitate to suggest!

Mr. Dorian takes a break from attempting to catch snowflakes.

Although freedom is rather temporary at this point, the taste of it is still sweet. I finally have some time to let my brain rest and to publish my first blog post of 2013! I can’t say that I have any interesting stories that will bring a smile, any weird new Dutch words, or any other interesting event in particular to talk about. My last 30+ days were dedicated to a whole-hearted effort to pass the University courses I was taking this semester. The most that I can say about them is that (for the most part) they are over. I’ve learned that I seriously have to work on developing a better learning technique to deal with the whole ‘learning things in another language’ thing.
