Phew. Maybe you noticed that I never made a recap last week. Sorry about that! A lot of things were happening, and my job and other things demanded most of my attention so I had to make some sacrifices. But now I’m back, and hah, at least I haven’t been bored during these two weeks. I’m pumped with inspiration and new ideas, although I’m mentally exhausted. It’s a lot to process for an introvert like me, but I had an awesome time! So what have I been up to, hmm?
Some memorable events from these past two weeks:
⋙Kingfomarket, May 19 – 20. This was a huge event held by King, the gaming company I currently work at. It was great! The entire company was invited (we are almost 2000 employees, yikes) we got free food, had workshops and seminars covering all kinds of things that affected our daily work. The artists had the great opportunity to listen to several speakers, my favorite was definitely Daniel Lopez Muñoz from Pixar. He gave a talk about his work on the movie Up. Needless to say, but I think everyone cried at the end ♡
And some of us artists made at drops, hohoho. Khsiraj snatched it ;)
⋙BBCON 2016, May 28. This was so much fun! Thanks Linda Hörnfelt(founder of Better Bloggers) & crew for arranging it! ♡ For you who are not familiar with BBCON yet, it’s a new Swedish expo where professional bloggers and companies were invited for seminars and panels. This years hot topics were:
- Partner- and sponsorships, legal info and general tips when collaborating with other companies or agencies.
- How to become a professional blogger featuring Sandra Beijer.
- Adobe’s Anna Rose gave us a walkthrough and showcased new features in Creative Cloud.
- What makes a blog popular? Featuring Clara Lidström.
- How storytelling is significant to gain an engaged audience, or to hype your product.
Most of the seminars were in Swedish, but I do hope that it will become more international next year, since that could potentially benefit the blogosphere. Most bloggers from Sweden focus primary on building a Swedish audience, which in my opinion, may be a bit limiting in some ways.
And I caught up with so many friends! Hung out with Nina, Johan, Ilias, Hedvig, Nika, Madde, Rachel, Maja, Roberta, Juanbi, Ebba, Polina, who did I miss aaah. Also, I finally got to meet Marcel (we’ve been following each other’s blogs for years), Linda, and many more! ◠◡◠
⋙Schoolism Workshop in Stockholm, May 28 – 29. Yay! I’t’s their second visit and it was awesome. Sadly I missed the workshops during Saturday, due to BBCON, but made it to the Meet & Greet during the eveing, and the rest of the talks on Sunday.
I also turned 30 last week, so I guess I’m officially a grown up, heh ◠◡◠
So yeah, I’ll be burnt out for the rest of the summer, or so it feels…! I’m so mentally beat down that it’s not even funny, haha! Didn’t feel quite well this morning, thought I was getting sick but I think I dodged it. Needed a very well needed rest, so I can function properly again…. I should be fine tomorrow.
How have you been?? ◠◡◠
Take care, amigos! New art is on the way, just need to catch my breath first♡
